Busy Days

After a very busy weekend and starting VBS today, I decided that I would take some time to blog before I get to the end of this week and wondered where time went! Saturday was our town's Summer Festival and I was asked to take pictures of the events going on... so, I thought I would share some. The only bad thing about having to photograph the days events was that Isaiah had his All Stars game that same day. He pitched 2 innings in which he struck out 4 of the 6 batters out and allowed no runs to score. On top of that he batted 3 times; he got a hit the first at-bat and got on base, was hit by a pitch his 2nd at-bat, and then finished off with getting the game winning RBI!!!!!!! It was a bummer that we missed it (except Dad and Chris) but he had lots of stories to tell us. Without further babbling, here are a few pictures...
Isaiah doing the tire roll.
Rebekah doing the tire roll.
Dad even participated in some events (and got ribbons!!). Here he is with his partner doing the 3 legged race.
Rebekah and he partner showed everyone how it was done in the 3 legged race by taking the blue ribbon and finishing way ahead of their competition.
Isaiah, well.... I think he should stick to baseball!!!! ;)
And after the "Anything That Floats Race", I snapped a few flower pictures.
Well, that is all for now. I need to get to bed because we have VBS the rest of the week and I usually get run down by the end of the week so I should get some sleep while I can!! Have a great week!!


  1. It sounds like you all have had some pretty fun days!!!!! Isaiah, you have had some pretty awesome baseball lately; wish I could have seen it. I was wondering when the summer festival would be. It snuck up real quick this year. Did Mr. Wentworth preside over the festivities? How did everyone do in all the events? Was there a good turn out of townspeople? Did the little kids like the summer fest? Did anyone compete in the Anything Floats Race? Were there any good boats? I wish I could have been there to see you all compete especially daddy :D Hope you all have a good time at VBS!!! Say hi to everyone for me. I send all my love, Beth

    P.S. Are the chicks still little? What about the pigs? Did they all get named? Also nice flower pics, Lindsey!!! Love you, Beth

  2. Looks like ya'll had a blast. Great pics.:)

    Much Love,

  3. Thank you Rose!! We did have a blast!!!

    Hey Beth, I'll try to answer all the questions...Yes, Mr. W. did "preside" over everything with his trusty megaphone! Rebekah did really well in all the events and Isaiah did place in some of the events he was able to participate in. Yes, there seemed to be more people in town for the summerfest, just not alot more in the games. Rebekah did compete with Jenny in the boat race and placed 4th. Oh, this year a boat actually almost completely sank!! They pretty much were dragging it in the whole way. That is how I had time to get those flower pictures!! The chicks and pigs and the garden all are growing really well. I'll have to put updated pictures of everything soon. Umm, honestly... No, only some of the pigs have names (the ones that we can tell apart without problems) however some of them are too much alike right now to tell them apart correctly all the time. I think that answered everything:) Mr. Lenny, Donna, and Bonnie say "hi"!! Love, Lindsey
