Jr. and Jennarae threw an awesome Fourth of July cookout at their house. Yummy hot dogs and burgers with all the trimmings were served up. Then some patriotic desserts. All of our family came and we even got to share it with one cute little boy and a sweet baby. I love when all of our family can be together and visit. I am once again so grateful for the closeness we all share.
We came upon the little eggs a couple of weeks ago on the way to the pond in our neighborhood. The momma sandpiper took such good care of guarding them. Eric and Jr put up sticks and ribbons so no one would mow over them and we checked on them often to make sure they were still ok. When the rain would come we would look out the window and hope they were okay. A few days had gone by and when Eric checked on them...NOTHING was there! We are guessing that a snake got them:( We are sad for the momma bird and hope she lays some more eggs in a safer place next time.
After being in Afghanistan for seven months Scott was finally reunited with his beautiful family on July 5th. He is a wonderful man who makes my best friend very happy. We are soooo glad Scotty is back home!!
