What a fun birthday party we went to for our Abbey on Sunday! Most of the grandchildren were there, some of our big kids, and lots of friends. Happy Birthday sweet Abbey.

Our Gannon was with us and he never tires of playing basketball!

Jack was in love with this baby bunny and wanted to take it home SO BAD!

Ellie was thrilled that Aunt Kim was there - they have really gotten to be buddies.

Lucy and Caroline (a/k/a Kline since Lucy can't say Caroline) got in on lots of the action.

Oh boy, Daddy rented a bounce house! I think the kids are wearing out.

Of course Uncle Chad had to get in on the action and give the kids some bouncy rides!

He might have eve tired himself out!

There were lots of presents - including a new fishing pole.

Guess what else?

Mommy Ashley made Abbey a 4-H cake that was delish!

Uncle Chad wanted to try his hand at decorating and came up with his own version of a pigeon!

Of course there had to be a Holland Lop bunny cake! A great time was had by all. Thank you Ashley and Tony for hosting another wonderful party.

After the party was over, we scooped up Abbey and headed up north to The Little House. We stayed until Wednesday morning, got home just in time to open the shop, and got some much needed R&R. Abbey got a jewelry making kit for her birthday, so she enjoyed sitting on the deck working away.

Friend Debbie and I went to Morning Glory Mercantile on Monday while Dick and Bbey went fishing. Found lots of goodies and was glad to visit with Sandy again - what a nice gal!

Time to come back to reality for a few days, and then back up for the Labor Day weekend. Think I'll start getting fall out at The Little House this time. Can't wait!!!

Have a great day.

Until next time...
