Week 27 here we are! I still can't believe we are now over 1/2 way through the year! WOW!
Sunday - 6/28
Sunday - 6/28
Austin had a golf tournament that was quite a ways away, so by the time he and Jay got home, all Austin really wanted to do was veg out on the couch. However, Tucker wanted to play his favorite game, which is where he jumps at Austin like he's trying to attack him, and Austin pushes him away with an old pillow...then Tucker goes nuts attacking the pillow. It's actually very funny to see in person. LOL
Monday - 6/29
Austin had a golf meet at the #1 course in the state of Iowa. Calling it "beautiful" is a major understatement. It is a beautiful place, but a very tough course to play. Austin did very well considering it was his first time to play this particular course.
Tuesday - 6/30
I got my hair cut today. My hair is very, very, VERY thick (I always tell my stylist that I appreciate her not charging me double considering how much hair I have). The stylist always takes the thinning shears to my hair and goes over and over it, thinning it down. It feels so good when she's done. I'm always amazed at how quickly that thickness can grow back! (Sorry it's such a small picture. Austin was messing around with the phone and adjusted the photo size and I didn't realize he'd done that - darn kid! :-P)
Wednesday - 7/1
I took Austin to his weekly golf lesson this evening. He meets one on one with his instructor to work on anything he feels he struggled with during the past week while at different meets. I'm really impressed with this instructor. He has a different full-time job, but gives lessons to kids in the evenings and he is awesome with kids of all ages. He makes it fun for Austin, yet gives him the info and guidance he needs to improve without talking down to him. Austin really likes him.
Thursday - 7/2
We headed out to the campground for the rest of the week and weekend. Ashley stated that since she was now a college educated woman, she would grill her own hamburger. However, she must have skipped the lecture on how to start the grill, because she proceeded to hollar "Oh Daaaaaaddy!" until he came over and lit the grill for her.
After supper, some of the kids (yes, including one of my college age daughters) were "craving " S'mores, however we had forgotten our sticks for them at a home. We only have plastic silverware here, so they decided to roas the marshmallows using their pinky fingers as their roasting sticks. We laughed so hard watching these kids holding their fingers over the fire, then jumping around yelling "Hot, Hot, Hot!" I'm so glad to know that the college tuition is being put to good use. Although, it was great entertainment for us.
Friday - 7/3
Our Community fireworks show was held tonight instead. There are several fireworks displays that will be much larger tomorrow night, and rather than trying to compete with them, our smaller display is just done the night earlier.
It's still a nice show for such a small community!
Saturday - 7/4
Rain ruined our original plans for the day. Ashley & Chelsea have always participated in a horse show on the 4th, but todays show was rained out. We still found ways to have fun. We grilled pork burgers.....
And we also asked the question of the day: "Why is Tucker content to stand outside in the rain, looking in through the window to watch us, instead of coming in through the doggie door (just right of the frame) where he could watch us and not look like a drowned rat?" But no, he just stood there in the rain, getting soaked. What a goofy dog!
Well, those are our unusual group of pictures from an unusual week. I hope you head over to Sara's, our Project 365 hostess, to check out many more great photos as well! Click on the button in the side bar to get to her blog.
