It's been a hectic, busy week here!

There's been hay to bale...corn to freeze...tomatoes to can...cows to milk...and family visiting.  I've been finding myself slacking on the blog these days, but I'm (we're) still here!

It's a rare occasion anymore to have all the cousins on my side of the family together, with several young adults and college students in the mix, and two families living too far away.  So whenever we can, we do a "cousins picture", much to the chagrin of the younger generation.  But...they were good sports...kind of...

...and they did allow us to get a "normal" picture...

Now two of them are back to work...two of them are back to college...two of them are probably just about finished with their thirteen hour drive home...and two are trying to catch up on their sleep before school starts!

Summer vacation is winding down.  Shhhhhhh!


  1. greatness! reminds me of my family back in the 'older' days. :)

  2. It is always nice when the entire family can get together! Rare for me since half of my family is in Germany but when they come here or i go there it is always a nice time.

  3. Busy, busy! Glad you got to visit with family! :)

  4. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Family love no matter how goofy the pics is the best kind. Slow down Alica we will be here when you get a chance, always lots to do. Winter will be slower:) Hug B

  5. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who is busy. Great goofy photo and normal photo of your visiting family.
    Summer is slipping by and Autumn is slipping in.

  6. Very nice photos. Yes, I was thinking about you and I thought I bet you are just running from sun up to sun down.
    I love getting to see your family photos.

  7. Definitely a Kodak moment (although Kodak is mostly out of the picture now) photos like that are precious and fun. Good looking cousins.

  8. What a lovely bunch of cousins... we can't get ours together very often anymore, either... growing up and lives flung out all over make a big difference.

  9. What a great (and fun) picture!


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
