Home Alone

Hello one, Hello all!

I hope ya'll are all having a good day. Dad and Mum are out of town for a few days, so T.J. and I are holding down the fort...and yes, the fort is still in one piece. We tried not to get tooo rowdy, but you know what ice cream can do to a person. LOL.

Today we had to make produce deliveries to Nashville, so we had lunch out, made a couple other stops and just had a jolly time! I thought I would share a couple pictures with you.

Praise the Lord for such a wonderful brother, who puts up with all of my weird moods (and even chauffeurs me around town).


Need I say more?

Of course, hot chocolate would have been a better choice, it was so cold! It has been rather dreary outside today, a cold, rainy kind of dreary. But it was a rather refreshing change from the blazing dry heat we have been having. And the rain is a blessing for our garden, so I can't complain (and it did give me an excuse to drag out a long sleeve shirt and some fuzzy socks ;).

I noticed this rose earlier this morning, as I was clipping herbs. I just couldn't resist taking a picture:

I will send you rain in it's season, and the ground will yield it's crops

and the trees of the field their fruit.

~ Leviticus 26:4

You O God, did send a plentiful rain; you did restore and confirm

your heritage when it languished and was weary.

~Psalm 68:9

Haawi ke aloha,

The Beach!!!

Hello all!
Sorry for the lack of postings lately. Life's been busy, and, as they say, "time flies when your having fun"! :) Well anyway, waaaaay back in July (can you believe July and August are gone already?!) we went to St. Augustine Beach to spend some time with Dad's mom. We made two seperate trips down there because we are not able to leave the farm for any length of time. The first time Mum stayed home to look after things around the farm while the rest of us went down there. :( We missed her a lot, but it made the second trip seem more special because we were all able to go! Papa offered to watch the farm so that we could all go together. But alas! We had so much fun just being together and relaxing that I didn't take very many pictures. But here they be, few though they are.

Trip #1

Both of Dad's brothers and their families were there when we arrived that afternoon, so we had a big crowd at lunch. Everyone left sometime that afternoon, so it eventually dwindled down to just us and Grandma. We went for a swim and then just had a relaxing evening curled up on the couch with cookies and ice cream.


"Now my dear, you must remember to always point your pinkie when you drink...What? I don't care if it's not tea, you should point it anyway!"

No, I know what your thinking, this is really not the same picture.

My family and me were once wild an free, but now we ain't doin' so great. We used to go down and stay at the beach, but now we're all on the couch by eight.
LOL. Interducing Grandma to Tim Hawkins. I wonder what she thinks of us now?

I can see it! We're almost there! I have been waiting for this moment for a whole YEAR!

Ah, the beach.

One point for you!

Now you see me...

now you don't!

We always love watching the pelicans fly over the water

And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." Genisis 1:20

Father and son

We found this really cool jelly fish, I had never seen one quite like that before!

Just me an' my bro

Trip #2

It was so nice to be all together at the beach! We did a little more exploring around town when Mom was with us, there are a lot of quiant little shops that are fun to visit.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:11

Da Vue

Mom found this awsome shell washed up on the shore. :)

T.J.'s birthday is in July, so Grandma always gets an ice cream cake to celebrete!

(:It really doesn't look big, but it really does seem bigger when your eating it:)

BEHOLD, our high-tech movie theater.
"Welcome to Surf Flics. May I have your ticket please."

And I shall leave you with a picture of St. Augustine's fort, Castille de san Marcos.
I snaped this picture as we were leaving so it is kinda blurry.

Adios, mi amigos!
