Water Day with our cousins.....

For our cousin's birthday we gave him a coupon to have a water day at our uncles private pool. We got awful sunburns especially the twins!

Silas making a funny face.
Some of us played tug-of-war.... Mommy and our cousins Sarah and Silas against me (So totally unfair:)
Silas enjoyed splashing us by hitting the noodle on the water.

A visit with Mrs. Hobbs.......

The very next day after the Davis family left, I found out that we were going to have company that night. Daddy had invited a long-time friend from FL who was in Tennessee to come up for an estate sale by Skaneatelas Lake.

One of the HUGE houses in Skaneatelas. This was one of my favorite.

Visit from the Davis family....

The Davis family, friends from Hobe Sound, FL came and spent the weekend at our house. We had a wonderful time together, and made many lasting memories!

Mommy drafted some of us girls to help in the kitchen.

All of us girls- from left to right:Kimberly, Me, Evangeline and Elizabeth in the front.

At the count of three, we girls were going to jump out of the windows of historic Fort Ontario, except Kimberly decided not to.

Nobody Knows the Troubles I have.....

Elizabeth has a horrible time swallowing pills. Yesterday Mommy made her have a pill that was a HUGE horse pill. With her, whenever pills go down, they come right back up. Because of that she crushed it and put it on bread with jelly. As you can see she had a hard time getting it down.

4th of July at the Humphreys

Dr. Humphrey took us to the basement where he does his painting. You can see the painting he did of Evangeline playing our piano. Dr. Humphrey's great- great aunt was Grandma Moses!

We spent the first part of our 4th of July working at Richland Campmeeting. Then we went to our family Doctor's house for supper and had a great time.
We children ate in the kitchen.
Grandma Hostetter has been with us for 2 weeks and she went with us too. Here she is trying to explain to Dr. Humphrey that she is not a Mennonite.
Elizabeth has been giving Adam piano lessons since last September.
