Straight after work, Jared came over to open gifts.
Canyon got him a bottle of Budweiser bbq sauce.
I got him a small grill.
Sahara made Jared and Jordan hangover kits.
Full of goodies like a power bar, gatorade, mints, gum, tic tacs, beef jerky, Advil, and eye drops.
She also got Jared bbq utensils.
Then we all went to Nanny's for dinner and pie and fishing.
Jared caught a couple.
Canyon thought it was gooey.
Last was a trip to the liquor store for his first ever purchase. Oh Lord, here we go.

Been a little rainy...

This is the Arkansas River by our house and the park it has now flooded.  I wish we could send all this unwanted rain and water to California!!

Last Saturday's Game

There was a professional photographer at the game last Saturday and he got a few shots of Canyon :)
I love the stop motion of the ball. This weekend's game was rained out.

My Mom's Day

Even though the weather was less then desirable, I had a very nice Mother's Day.
The flowers were a free bonus acquired from a graduation party the night before. Sahara was told to take a centerpiece home when it was over.
Sahara got me expensive wrinkle cream (much needed)!
Canyon got me a beautiful crystal he picked up on a field trip.
Jared took me and his mom out to eat Mexican at Tarascos. Thank you kids!! ❤��������

It's always a party in Canyon's classroom. Here they are celebrating their teacher's birthday with a dessert pizza :)

Salmon roses

My 15+ year old rose bush is still beautiful. It was here when we moved in, but I transplanted it from under the front windows to out by the street, I never water it or give it any attention at all. It has 3 roses (this one the freshest as big as my hand) and 14 buds.

Is this Paul Blart?

Mall cop? No it's just Jared starting his new job with Securitas.

Art Show

Just the bottom one here.
His mask has on the same hat :)

So glad we decided to head here after the Rally.

We got there when the 1st balloon was operating. Should we??? Decided why not go all out and take the helicopter ride instead.

At the time they had 2 choppers. Then a 3rd showed up.

We took the black one.

Mom in the front, it was so cool!

Canyon loved it and yes! Maliki went with us!

That's our reflection in the pond.

Coming in for a landing. So much fun!

Love = Love Rally

Who would have thought little ol' Russellville would have an equal marriage rights march? But they did. And we supported.
Over 300 people attended.
We met some nice people and when we marched down Main there was a lot of honking support going on.
We heard some speeches while having dessert after the march and saw a proposal. It was a good time.

Honors Picnic

I took a half day to meet with Canyon at Old Post Park for his school picnic.
He did a lot of swinging after hamburgers. He was quite a ham out with his classmates.
Quiet time on the bridge looking for turtles, fish, and geese.
Cute brand new babies.
Finally award time.
5 minutes in the car and someone is out.
