Niece Jenna had her dance recital today. She is also on the dance company's competitive dance team, so we got to watch her performing in all those dances as well. So much fun! The pictures aren't great because I forgot my camera, and my cellphone didn't like how fast they were moving and that I couldn't use flash.
Afterwards we took a picture of the cousins that were there watching Jenna.

Today I took Austin to one of his Junior PGA golf tournaments. This one is at an absolutely beautiful course. The building in the back is their clubhouse with dark wood throughout. Gorgeous! Austin did really well. He placed 6th out of 20+ kids in his age division.

No picture today. I started into having a bad flare the night before and was in bed all day today. This picture is one Jay took of me in early April with one of the dogs on a day I was down. They can sense when I'm having a painful day and they take turns coming and laying with me as if they are trying to make me feel better. It's so sweet.

This morning we looked out to see a skunk waddling into our garage. Jay tossed some cat food out onto the driveway to hopefully lure Mr Skunk outside so we could get rid of him. It didn't work but the farm cats did appreciate the extra feeding. lol

I bought a new crockpot and was anxious to try it out. I made Creamy Turkey Tenderloins and they were a.maz.ing. It was a very easy recipe - Lay tenderloins in crockpot. Sprinkle garlic and/or any other seasonings you want over them. Mix together 2 cans cr. of chicken soup and 1 can cheddar cheese soup and pour those over the tenderloins. Cook for 6-8hrs on low. So yummy.

Tonight was the start of our annual town festival. The main street in town is about 3 blocks long and they shut off the main street to traffic. There is great food, live music, and all kinds of fun activities for kids and adults.
Some of the school &/or community clubs have activities that are just ways to give back to the community, or done as a fundraiser. The FFA club had this putting ramp set up and you got prizes for making it in different holes. It was kind of fun for Austin to help with his (he's in the red hat) because not only is he an FFA officer, but he actually made the ramp back when he was in 5th grade and exhibited it at our county fair. He was a golfaholic even back then. ha!
Austin's girlfriend is on the school dance team and those girls had a "pictures with a princess" activity. All the dancers dressed as different storybook and disney princesses. They had pictures to color, tattoos, and beads to hand out, and they took pictures with anyone who wanted to. Austin got his picture taken with his favorite princess "Glinda the good witch". :)

Our town festival was to continue today with outdoor activities and a parade. Unfortunately storms came through, which mean all that was canceled. So instead, Austin went up to the school shop to work on the antique tractor he has been restoring. It will be exhibited this summer at both the county and state fairs for judging. A good friend of ours has restored many tractors, so he has been coming up to help teach Austin what to do and why. He's doing such a great job on it, and I can't wait to see it all done.
