Our neighborhood park

The park got the worst of it. We lost 2 huge trees that must have been 100's of years old. Look how small that telephone pole is compared to that tree. Farther back there is another 6-7 trees snapped in half about 8' from the ground.

End of the driveway

Luckily we live in Amish country and they are helping us out taking down the broken trees. All the trees were brought down today and they will be picking them up tomorrow.

Summer Storm

Well Elmira got a confirmed tornado and they don't know yet what hit us. Luckily no trees on the house but we lost five beautiful pine trees along the driveway. All in all our road with 11 houses lost probably 40 trees.

Flat Summer

Flat Summer came with us on vacation and we got pictures of her all over the island. Our little island girl had a great time.

Mmmm Barracuda

Not many places you can get fresh barracuda in the states. The Driftwood catches them fresh everyday and this is a blackened Cajun catfish with a peach BBQ sauce. So good.....

Had fun in Aruba

Another fun vacation in Aruba.

We've got twins

We have another set of twins hanging out in the woods around the house. They watched me grill up some cedar plank salmon tonight.

The bandit brought her little ones

They were pretty cute, there was 4 babies just learning to climb. Two already made it up the tree.

Freddy still thinks he's a kitten

We love him a lot but he isn't the smartest cat we've ever had.

Last year we had to bribe her to touch the middle. Now she's playing ring-around-the-rosie under the water and sticking her hand in the spray.

Fountain Fun!

Emily's having fun cooling off!
