It's our traditional week of celebration--dinner at the square, fireworks, parade, good food and great friends! We ventured off the farm and enjoyed a great day with friends on the 4th of July, celebrating this great country and the freedoms we enjoy! God Bless the USA!
Manda made dance team this year and they performed in the parade. She was awesome!
Here they are in formation.
It was a perfect day, not too hot and even a bit of a breeze.
Waving to the fans!
Isaac was very intent on learning how to eat sunflower seeds.
His interest peaked when he saw Bear spitting out the shells!
McKenzie and Isaac
Too much good food!
That's Jesse instructing Mandy on the fine art of scooping watermelon without leaving a fork mark in the fruit!
Just call me Corn Boy! We lost count, but corn was about the only thing we ran out of.
We got up and headed outside to do some work around the farm today. Bear chopped down the weeds so that we can spray if this rain ever shuts off, cleaned out the silo where the rabbits have their winter condo, and cleaned up the remains of a dog bed of Chiquilla's that Champer pulled through the fence into her kennel and ripped to smithereens!
These two found a quiet place on the haystack to take a nap away from the big black monster!
Pam and Kapree stopped by on their way to Jackson Hole today. It was fun to see Pam again, and meet Kapree! What fun she had on the Posyluzny Farm seeing our animals! They will be back through on Wednesday. She picked out some cute pink polka dot fabric, and I'm going to get a flirty skirt made for her return trip.
The girls are pretending to swim. It's been too cold to fill the pool up yet.
Kapree checks out the tree house. Grandma, I need a boost!
Great view from up here!
Noah comes over to say hello!Kapree feeds Thumper a carrot.
She thought it was fun to pet a real bunny.
Reaching in to pet Thumper you can see how cute her hair is!
Our chihuahua loves to go "bye-bye." Just mention it, and she's all excited. We decided to take her to the feed store and the garden shop with us yesterday. She loves it! Mandy carried her in a shoulder bag. She looked just like Paris Hilton with her pampered pooch, only way cuter!
We went out Thursday evening to find Noah's eye swollen and draining. Unfortunately it is his injured eye, and he has not been thrilled about treating it!
This is Noah's eye today, Saturday May 30, 2009. He looks so much better than he did 2 days ago. We have been treating it with a Saline mix of 1/2 t. salt to 2 cups lukewarm water, wiping down the area around the eye. Then squirting Clear Eyes (for humans) directly in the eye. Our poor Noah boy has had a couple of rough days, but he's a trooper!
The eye is getting better and looking more normal each day.
This was how it looked on the first day. His eyelid was huge, puffy and red. It was nearly swollen completely shut.
The white scar on his eye is from an injury about 3 years ago. Thanks to his wonderful vet, Dr. Keith, he has had a full recovery from that. According to our expert advice source, she believes it must have been a bee or horse fly sting.
