A foggy day getting firewood


 Foggy...and a bit cool....
We took off to go cut some more firewood.
It was definitely foggy...and 49 degrees!
 We were behind a locked gate...
 The forest is beautiful anytime...
but in the fog, it's just magical.

 Our neutered buddy was in the back seat...


 This picture above and below is where we stopped...
same as the last couple of times...
but it definitely looks a little different in the fog.


 It was also MUDDY...
very muddy...
and Baxter didn't care...

 I love this picture!
Ron has loved the woods for so long...
 I started getting a little worried about Baxter...
thinking his incision would get too dirty...

 THIS is what concerned me the most...
I was worried about a stick hitting him in his incision...
 He wasn't too concerned...
but he definitely wasn't as lively...as rambunctious as he usually is in the woods!
Well, alls well that ends well...
I eventually put him in the truck and tried to clean him up a little...
including his cone.
He was tired...but no damage done!

and we got some more wood!

Five grandsons...at the Celebration at Lindsey's

We needed to get on the road and head home...
but first...
we wanted...we needed...a picture with our 5 grandsons...and Baxter.
 I still don't quite get what this DAB is...or whatever it's called.
 I want to get one of these framed...but not sure which one is my favorite!

 This one makes me laugh!

 The boys were the ones that wanted Baxter in the picture.
Here, Walt's not too sure about this whole picture taking episode.
 After our photos with all 5 boys, Lindsey got some of Sullivan and his Mimi...
love, love, love!


 Benjamin came over to join us again for a few pictures...
W


Then came Emerson...
and after that..
this Mimi and Papa packed up and took off for home.

What a fun day this was!

 At one point, I heard London ask Benjamin to play baseball.
 He did...and that was the beginning of a big baseball game that lasted the rest of the party!

 Well, there was a lapse when I didn't see any of the big kids...
and this is where I found them.
 Minecraft...
and lots of advice on what to do!



 Back outside, Walt was hungry for these DELICIOUS noodles...a korean dish.




 Walt and Gabe

 Donnie got on the trampoline with Walt

 Don was the bad guy...telling the kids to get off the electronics...
and then the baseball game really got in gear!

 It was a great party...and the weather...
