Snow Fun!

Trying out her snow board equipment--going boarding tomorrow!

As for snow removal, you can groom it, but don't take it away!

When it comes to snow removal, it's time for Bear's latest toy!

Who would have thought a lawn mower minus the carriage plus a snow blade on the front could be so much fun!

Out of gas so soon?

Friends + Family + 4th of July + Fireworks =equals= FUN!

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!

The Parade
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
Good Friends

Good Games!

Good food!

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.
Next year 2 dozen ears! See the recipe I used this year on my
I tried corn on the cob in the crock pot and it worked, just ask Isaac!
The water fight

This is how innocent it started. Just soft little water balloons, but before long it turned into an all out war, with the enemy stealing artillery and hoses. Everyone got soaked, but had a great time.

Fun/pain on the trampoline!

Is it time for "Fireyworks" yet?

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!
"Watch how high I can jump for a treat!"

A Visit from Pam and Kapree

To see Kapree's new skirt, check out my site!

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!

You dropped your carrot Thumper!

She found the dress up box downstairs.

Having fun on the trampoline.

Let's just sit and talk a bit.

She's airborne!

June 2 Sunset

We've had thunder showers this afternoon, but this evening the sunset was spectacular! I went out to snap a few photos and caught Noah watching it too!

The south east side of the valley looked like this...
You can just barely see the tree house in Grandmother Willow!
This was what the northwest sky looked like right before the sun went to bed.

Chiquilla's Trip to Town

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!

Noah's Eye----Bee Sting?

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.
