Relay for Life

Last night we participating in the Relay for Life. The kid choose this for there service project this year for horse 4-H. We all had a great time although it was a very long night. All the kids took turns throughout the night and walked. We managed to get it done and raised some money for the cancer society and had a wonderful time in the process. Here are some pictures of the event.

So worth the money to lock the little monkeys up.

Trying to get warm

fingers vs. front door

Well I had a mishap on Sunday and slammed my fingers in the front door of our house. Lets just say I could have cried and thrown up at the same time it hurt so dang bad. I can't remember the last time I have ever slammed my fingers that hard before.

Fingers vs. Front Door I think the front door won. This was taken today so my fingers are not red from being slammed in the door they are bruised. Dang it that hurt! haha you like the dog teeth right between my ring finger and pinkie? Looks like he is going to take a bit out of my finger!

So I turned the BIG 3-0 last week and it turned out to be an amazing birthday. I still really don't know how I feel about it. It really does not bother me that I'm 30 it just opens my eyes to the fact that I'm starting to get older and so is everyone around me time just goes by so dang fast.

Last day

Well it's my last day in my 20's. I really don't know how I feel about it at this point either. At first it was a big deal, then I thought well it's only got to get better, and now I'm back to I just don't know. I guess the problem I have with it is I see that I'm getting older and everyone around me is getting older as well and then health problems come into play and that is the part that scares the crap out of me. Well here I go guess I'm jumping in with both feet but really do I have a choice?

So this year we are flooding it is just at the beginning stages and is only getting worse. We are praying that it does not get to bad. We went for a drive on Monday to check out how everything was looking. Here are a few pictures from the drive.

This is the lane we use to live on when I was in high school. In 1997 we were doing the same thing I'm so grateful that my mom and mike don't live out there anymore.

Here is a look at the river from the lane.

The field right in front of the lane we use to live on when I was in high school.

Field swallowed up by the river

Hardly any room for anymore water.

Not much room under the bridge

Rose Ponds more like Rose Lakes/River now.
