Last week was busy! This week--a new roof!

We went to Ben's (nephew) baseball game in Boone last Friday evening (he plays for Hoover in Des Moines). It was a hot evening, but sunny and great for a ball game.

That's Ben playing shortstop. He did a GREAT job. He made at least three outs by throwing ground-hit balls to first, and backed up several other plays. (I lost count of the throws to first.)

Below isn't Ben, but I just like the shot of the pitcher I captured with the camera!

The roof crew will be here at some point today (possibly just setting things up and delivering materials) to take off 3 layers of shingles (back to 1920 when the house was built!) and put boards and etc. up for the new roof and additional gutters and downspouts that will be installed.

Cousins' pictures of the cousins weekend....

Front row: Margaret (my cousin), Samantha (my daughter) and Ben, (Bob's younger son). Back row: Shirley holding Izaac (my sister and her grandson), our Uncle Charlie, me (poking my head in between, my mom (U. Charlie's little sister) and my brother, Bob. We're missing a couple more people that were there that day, but it's an okay group picture.

Izaac posing with the ladder golf game Samantha got for a wedding present.

David (my cousin and Margaret's younger brother), our Uncle Charlie, and Alex (my son) solve the world's problems (or just discussing the differences in beer!).

David and my dad (David's 'uncle Bill') Not sure how they got my dad in a picture actually looking like he knows the camera is there! (He's not always cooperative in this regard.)

Alex, Allison (who will soon be Alex's WIFE!!), and Samantha.

Cousins for the weekend!

That's my (smart!) cousin, Margaret, from Buffalo, on the left, then my Uncle Charlie, my mom, and my sister (Shirl) relaxing and chatting this weekend.

Shirl and Margaret mugging for the camera!

Since we've been gone a bunch this weekend, the kitties are pretty desperate to have some fun! This is Gracie scooting up a tree to catch a bird!

Leave it to a 3 year old!

I gave Izaac a 'single-use' camera before Samantha & Marty's wedding mostly for entertainment. Yet, he's the only photographer that day to get a decent picture of his (great-great) Uncle Charlie, (great) Uncle Bobbie, and cousin Ben (Bob's younger son)! The rest of us didn't think about getting the photographer to take a picture of 'our' side of the family (our own fault).

Below is a nice picture of Grandma W. and some of her grandchildren. From left, Will, Claire & Samantha.

Views from Dubuque last weekend

This was the tugboat pushing a barge through the Lock and dam #11 in Dubuque last
Friday evening.

This heron acted like he ran the place, walking up the sidewalk and inspecting the barge as it moved through the lock.

Nice view of a storm brewing to the southeast.

First Wednesday in the Park this summer....

It was a nice day in Stanhope for the first "Wednesday in the Park" event.

I'm not sure where these old cars started, but they made a loop around the park so we could see them better!
