Days 4,5,6 with Papa and Grammie!

We were very blessed to have Papa and Grammie attend church with us Sunday morning. 
It's always really special for us to worship together!
Then, after church we went out for Mexican food! Yum!
Three generations of Boweses! 
And going strong!
 Monday afternoon, we played a little card game together called GOLF,
that they introduced us to when we visited them in the spring in Phoenix. 
(Valerie wasn't here as she was at the veterinarian's office taking care of some routine stuff with a couple of her dogs.)
 Today was a beautiful day, so we all enjoyed going to the NW Trek Wildlife Park!
Lovely Grammie with two of her lovely granddaughters.
(Unfortunately, Blackberry chose today to have her puppies, and needed Valerie's assistance! ; - )

 Such a lovely day for a stroll through the woods!
And then have a nice, restful ride on the tram that goes through the park!

 It was a little warm today, so both the bison and the female elk herd were soaking in the ponds!
Then, a little more strolling!
Grizzly bear!
 Benny Bear!
 What a fun day!
Thank you, Lord, for all these awesome creatures! 
 "How many are your works, O Lord! 
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures."
Ps. 104:24
"I will sing to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live."
Ps. 104:33

Poppy is Popular! ;-)

While the rest of us were away at family camp,
Victoria and Caroline were at an ABGA show in Chehalis, WA,
showing several of their goats and another farm's goats for the owners. 
Crossroads Boer Goats' newest addition, Poppy, won her class both days . . .
 and Jr. Grand Champion both days!!!!!
Whoo hoo!
Way to go Poppy! ;-)
She's only 7 months old,
so she has a great future ahead of her!

Benjamin Turns Four!!!

 Can you tell he's pretty excited?!!!!
 It was a perfect day for a birthday party and BBQ!!! 
A few of the party guests enjoying the day together . . .
 We sure missed Richie!!!  : -(
But so proud of him!
He was working hard putting in some overtime at his workplace.

 Time to open presents!
Such a great assortment of things!
 Grammie trying out the awesome farm puzzle she and Papa gave to Benjamin! ;-)
 He received so many great gifts!
Thank you everyone!!!
The little cowboy just had to go for a ride! 

Time for volleyball!  
 Go Papa!
 And then singing, blowing out of the candles, and eating birthday cake!

 And some water fun . . .;-)
 and showing Papa and Grammie our dancing steps!
 It was a great day!!!   
Thank you Lord for the blessing of our little Benjamin!

Day 2 with Papa and Grammie!

It was a lovely day today!
Papa and Grammie had a leisurely morning,
resting up and soaking in the beauty all around them from their apartment.
Then, over at our place, we thoroughly enjoyed visiting outside in the early afternoon.
 Timmy was so anxious to give the birthday boy the present he bought for him!
So he decided it would be a good time to give him a birthday eve gift!
 Then, the two handy fathers began working on a project together . . .fixing a lawn mower  . . .
 while the girls got busy in the kitchen!
Grammie made her wonderful, amazing fudge
and the rest of us made dinner together.
Then, Grammie and Benjamin sat down at the table and had a discussion about
the Chronicles of Narnia! ;-) 
 After dinner,
the slumber parties began at Papa and Grammie's place
with Kyle and Caroline being their first guests!

Papa and Grammie Arrive!

After 3 days on the road . . .
they are here!
 Grammie getting reacquainted with the littlest one . . .  
 with a little bag of m & m's! 
 And Benjamin loves Papa's fun game of making something
disappear and reappear in various places!!

 And with everyone else . . .
just lots of happy tears, huggin', eating and chatting going on!
 Now the menfolk are off to their Friday morning Bible study,
while us girls catch up on our beauty rest! ;-)
Looking forward to the week ahead with Papa and Grammie!
