The Absent Blogger Returns!

Can you see me standing high on a hill, my hands on my hips, my crazy curly hair blowing out behind me along with my pink cape marked with a big shinny sliver B! The return of Absent Blogger, the Internet's most sporadic super hero!!!!! TADA!!!!! ok enough of that....

I've been so neglectful of my blog. My deepest apologies. Sometimes I don't have anything to say (yes that happens to me occasionally) but lately I've been so busy doing fun stuff and enjoying the weather (and the couch once in a while) that I just haven't been on line! So let me catch you up!
Labor Day weekend we took our beloved pop up on it's maiden voyage. We drove up to Ackley Saturday morning and set up next to the Niederts. Oh we love our pop up! It worked out wonderfully. My folks came up that evening for dinner and we all enjoyed sitting around the camp fire. I quite enjoyed a weekend of doing nothing. I laid around, napped, chatted with the fam, essentially did nothing, it was great!

We eat better when we are camping than we do when we are at home!

My crazy lovable brother in law!

The older boys were teach Dan tricks, good thing he's not quite strong enough yet!

Boys on one side, girls on the other. Dan crawled up to cuddled with Tom Sunday morning.

This past Friday we all headed out to Mo & Dan's place. It is absolutely beautiful out there and only 12 miles from my house!! They had a ton of friends over and a wonderful feast for us all. I enjoyed catching up with some friends I hadn't seen in a long time. Saturday Jake, Lexi & Haley came to visit. Oh their folks came along too! I'm so in love with these three kids! They are all just adorable and so personable. We had dinner and made s'more out back around the fire ring.
Sunday Waverly and Cade K. got their Bibles during church. It is tradition in our church to present the 3rd graders with new Bibles. Of course Waverly had a whole video crew there. I had my camera and Dan and Grandma both video taped it, lol!

**Please no hate mail for the following pictures. We've taught the kids gun safety from day one and they are never unsupervised. Target shooting is something we all enjoy and is something my family has always done.*****

Later that afternoon we all went out to an undisclosed location in Tama county to do some shooting. It was a beautiful day to be on top of a hill in the middle of corn fields. I hadn't been shooting in so long, we sure had a good time!

There is just something funny about these two guys on a four wheeler!

These are the close range targets. Both suspects were thoroughly dead.
