~ Brown Mountain, NC ~

The heat here in Union County has been taking a toll on us lately.  It created quite a longing among us to be somewhere cooler.  We headed to the Mountains of NC for the day earlier in the week.  Lots of cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends tagged along with us.  Although it wasn't much cooler there, a good time was had by all!!!  We carried a picnic lunch and spent the day swimming and catching up with each other.  Hope you enjoy the pics!

Thank you for stopping by!!!  Come again soonn!

from all of us here at "Down on the Farm!"  There's not a whole I need to update you on right now.  We all are staying pretty well occupied with our summer schedule :)  Love it when the kiddos are out of school. I have been studying all summer, but they are old enough to take care of themselves most of the time, and that's been a huge blessing!!!  They are such great supporters of my nursing adventures :)   I'm still having to pinch myself now and then to fully believe that I have two married sons, and the most wonderful new daughters in the world! Life truly is so good :))

Our summer schedule includes but is not limited to,

  • cookouts
  • lots of homemade ice cream
  • a table full of folks just as often as we can get them together
  • swimming
  • gardening
  • canning and freezing
  • blueberry picking
  • studying
  • baking
  • sewing
  • crocheting
  • enjoying many beautiful flowers
  • doing a little volunteer work here and there
  • nursing clinicals
  • counting our many, many blessings
  • day trips to the mountains or the park
  • bluegrass concerts in the park
  • music practice with the band
So if you get to looking for us, we can be found doing some of the above just to name a few of our summertime activities! I am so blessed!!!

Thank you for stopping by!

We are so thrilled to welcome Hannah to our family :)  They were married outdoors at a beautiful venue and the reception was held indoors....thank goodness for air conditioning :))  From the early hours of the day as we set things up and everyone got ready, through the beautiful ceremony and music by the Hatley family, everything was as near perfect as one could hope for!!! God is so good all the time!!! I am one blessed Mama! Congratulations Jeff and Hannah!!! We love you!!!
