Rick and I have another baby besides, Ryan, Ian and Gracie, T-bone. He is such a good dog. (I just wish that he didn't slobber)
Another picture of my flowers. This has become a lil' hobby of mine for the last two weeks. I wish that my flowers were as pretty as the pictures showed.
I LOVE THUNDERSTORMS!!! So I was pretty excited when I woke up this morning and the sky was dark and rumbling. Last summer, Rick, I and the kids sat on the front porch and watched a lightning storm for probably a hour and a half. We would talk until a bright lightning bolt would light up then sky, then continue to talk. It was a special time to me, enjoying my family and the storm.
I'm torn, however, because Ryan has a baseball game in Brookfield, MO tonight. I am so excited for baseball to begin. It is my favorite sport by far!!! I am also excited that we are going to eat afterwards with dear friends of ours.
Not much on the agenda today. I cleaned and mowed like a crazy lady yesterday. The house is in pretty good shape. I always wonder why we decided to mow 6 acres. But when it is mowed, it looks so good. In about six days, I will be complaining again. ;)
I told you that I would post pictures of Ian's field trip the other day. This is Ian at Penguin Park. He looks thrilled, doesn't he?
2/3 of the artifacts recovered are on display at the Arabia museum. The other 1/3 is still being cleaned. I believe I recall them saying that it will be another 15 years before the exhibit will be finished. Most of the objects were dishes, boots, tools, etc. I wish I could take a few things home to my kitchen. Here is the link to the official web-site. I suggest you click on museum info, then click on the Arabia's video. It's very interesting.
The buttons in this picture are porcelain. Wouldn't they make a fabulous scrapbook page. Somehow, I doubt that they will let me buy them.
This is the original founder of the Steamboat Arabia, Bob Hawley.
