June wrap-up post

And there goes June!!

We had some big bubble fun one day :)

This one looked like a hotdog ;)

Caleb has been quite the snake hunter recently! 

Recital time

We celebrated Father's Day along with a few birthdays...

The birthday girls :)


Inside joke!

Looking good in pink...

I feel an overture coming on...

Notice anything with the numbers?!?

There was also a surprise for me! I received a hope chest
from Grandpa and Grandma Birchard.

Grandpa and Grandma B's gift was a gift they got at their wedding!

Hannah and Anna - the purple ladies

Rebecca grew a little taller ;)

This couple has been married for 71 years! Their anniversary is
on the same day as Mary's birthday :)

The guys have been working on fixing this trailer frame...

Caleb has been doing lots of welding

Jon took the girls on a bike ride - they really enjoyed it!

Go, Buky, go!


And as always, we are still working on our wood to get ready for the winter :)

We split and stacked 4 cords this time...


We have had quite the farming experience with our chickens...

The guys re-did our aunt's roof with a friend a couple of weeks ago...

The garage looks great!

Resting for a minute...

Subway is a family favorite :)

Look what Rebecca just bought!! Just kidding :)


After..."I can count the leaves on the trees!!"

Looking studious...

Rebeca and Rebecca :)

Look what we fit into the new van!!

Very tired after a very busy month of June...
