Fathers Day 2017

We had a fun time celebrating Fathers Day with the Smith's at the pool Saturday and then Sunday Abigail woke up and cooked her dad some fried eggs and jalapeno bacon. Then we took a few guns and went shooting. We had Ben and Karen come with their girls for dinner and to visit. It was a great weekend! Even better that while the boys cooked us ladies dinner we went and help some puppies! 
(We should have been cooking the father's dinner)

Father's Day post from the lovely facebook....

This guy right here is the BEST Father a girl could have! He is always ready to answer any question's a 9 year old can come up with, he can paint finger nails and massage her little feet better than any salon, gives her all the motorcycle rides she wants, he teaches her all the things her little heart desires, and he is ALWAYS there when she needs him and when she even when she thinks she doesn't. Happy Fathers Day! We Love you and appreciate everything you do for us. You are our world!

Happy Fathers Day to my great Father in Law! Thank you for all you do for Don, Abigail, and I! Since losing my father I know I can always come to you if I need fatherly advice and I appreciate the love you have for me and Abby. You are not only a great dad but you are a wonderful Grandpa and Abigail LOVES you with all her heart! Happy Fathers Day David Dad! 

Another year, another fathers day with out my pops! I love him, I miss him, and I wish I could have another day to just sit by a lake and relax with him. I see him often in my dreams and feel him with me a lot. He is gone but he is still by my side every step of the way. He was a great dad and always full of the best come backs and had the best sense of humor! As I grew up we grew closer and I am happy that we had the close relationship with each other. I could talk to him about anything even when I knew he was going to tell me what i did not want to hear. Our relationship grew over the years he lived with us and I am so thankful to have had that time with him and wished I would have had more. Even when he would drive me nuts. He loved to embarrass us at every opportunity he got. He loved to cause trouble and get Don to play along with him. I miss that. I miss you Dad. Happy Fathers Day in Heaven!

Old Man

Old man is 42!

 We just got home yesterday from a nice trip and today we get to celebrate Dad's birthday! 

 Happy Happy Birthday Babe! 

We Love you TONS and TONS! 

Abigail baked his cake and decorated it by herself. He got some Harley attire and a sign, and a steak dinner. 

We are lucky the cake didn't catch the house on fire!

Youth writing contest

Abigail entered a youth writing contest that Batz Rabbitry was doing. The winners (they picked 2) received a pair of Netherland Dwarfs or Mini Rex! Well Miss Abigail won a pair of Mini Rex rabbits! She picked 2 females to start with and will purchase a buck around mid summer or as soon as Dad gets our hutches done. Abigail picked a beautiful blue doe and a black doe. They are born from different litters. She is so excited to be able to get involved in some rabbit shows and be able to breed them in the future.

I finally after months and months of looking found some pure breed Flemish Giants. I purchased 2 and will get a 3rd as soon as the hutches are finished. We are both looking forward to being able to start a little rabbitry to be able to do some rabbit shows and Abigail would also like to do some 4h.
