Time to play catch up!

Dusting off this blog and going to get after it.  No more lame, I will start posting on Monday excuses. 

I have many photos to post, so I will start off with some Holiday pictures I took for my husbands family.  Our niece Becky and Mike and their two boys, Rydell & Brock.  My sister in law Cathy and her husband Scott and the very photogenic Ella.  We did these shoots on the fly, but got some cute pictures for Christmas cards.  Cheryl another sister in law and her husband Craig and Ryno, aka Ryan.  I have six sister in laws all with children and now their children are having children so things will once again be hopping at the family gatherings.




A Lotta Bull and Horsin Around!

I was out taking photos this weekend for a photo challenge I was planning on entering. I ran across these big boys just waiting for me to take their photo. Thank goodness I was not wearing red. I also got a quick shot of these 3 curious horses about a block from my house.

Guilty as Charged!

Sorry I have been such a pathetic blogger. I will make a conscious effort to post more photos and keep my blog up to date. I will be taking some senior pictures in the coming weeks, and will post highlights for all to see.

Independence Day in Small town USA

All my kids made it home for the annual 4th of July celebration.  My son brought home his friend Anthony who lives in Texas.  The kids had fun 4 wheeling, visiting with classmates, going to West Bend Recreation Area for some swimming,  the annual fireworks display and ended the day with some dancing at the street dance on Main.


This wagon was restored by Mark Hanson from Rochester, Minnesota.  It was just a pile of boards when he started.  The owners  are Jessens from Highmore, South Dakota.
