Bryan and I had another busy weekend. On Friday night, we went to a birthday party for Amy Chapman. Happy 40th Amy!!! You look great!!! We left the party and had a late dinner of pizza from Jo's Famous Pizza in Purcell. Sorry no pictures! I'm having a hard time not having my LCD screen on my camera (I hope to get my new one this week) But Bryan and I gorged ourselves on pizza and Dr. Pepper and ranch dressing!! Then we drove to Ada and got to his parents around 10:30 pm. We went down there to wish Bryan's dad a Happy Father's Day and do some "chores" for my Granny.
It's good to go back to the country every now and then. The bridge on Granny's road was out. Actually the county had demolished it and will be rebuilding it. It seems to flood and erode every time they get a big rain. Because Bryan is an engineer and works mainly on flood plain analysis and bridge construction we drove down there for him to "inspect" it. I was proud to hear him name off the technical terms about what the county was doing to build the bridge.
Here are some pictures of walking up to the where the bridge was and Bryan and I overlooking where the bridge will go. They had just recently had a big rain that week.
I do not like rushing water and wanted him to hurry up and take the picture!!!
As a teenager living with my Granny and Poppy and driving over the country roads, I came to love this creek bottom (Does that sound like something that would come from Mark Twain or Little House on the Prairie??!!:) ). I have always thought this was one of the prettiest views.
Bryan and I spent a looonnnnnggg time cleaning out my Granny's gutters on her back patio. It was a chore!!! It took us a lot longer than we anticipated and I got filthy dirty and very wet. But I guess some labor never hurt anyone to bad.
We had my dad and mom over after church yesterday for Father's Day. Kristi and Jackson joined us. After my parents left, we all took a nap and then Bryan and I went over to help my sister pack and move. We worked from about 5:00 - Midnight last night. Bryan is off today so he is getting to sleep in. He has worked very hard the past few days. He took off 3 days last week and worked on the siding of our house. He is getting a little tired of home repairs/improvements! But I'm so very proud of him. He is doing a fine job and saving us a ton of money!!! I made him pose for a "funny" picture yesterday!!
