The first day of summer…and…


In mid-northern Minnesota that is. Not the warmest weather we’ve ever had but sure is saving on the electric bill with no air conditioning.

The flowers aren’t minding the cooler weather but my garden isn’t doing the greatest. The pine trees are loving it though, look at all that new growth.

We have been busy as a family, daycare, scouts and more. I don’t get pictures for everything we do but I have some. Like these…

We finally got to go fishing. Really I got to go fishing, both my guys don’t fish but they took me. I caught one bass so not a great catch but two hours out on the water, it was amazing.

As you can see we’ve been doing all kinds of good things in daycare. The kids pictures we turned into buttons for the daddy’s for Father’s day. I had a picture of the buttons but lost it some where's.

On Saturday Mike and I took CPR and First Aid with our Venture crew. We do it every two years for daycare and scouts.

And one final goody. Mike built a cannon. Just a table top on but it turned out so cool and awesome and his welding skills sure show themselves here. Check this video out. Sorry for the sunline on it but at least we had sun for a bit.

So there you have it. What’s happening here at the Life of Riley’s. I wish you all a blessed rest of this week. Take care my friends.

The photos with the kids are very well done! They're all worthy of framing. :)

Your time out on the water looks so refreshing! I'm glad you had that.

Mike's cannon scared me when it exploded! How does he do it? The video should go with his resume! :D

Good to know you're doing good, Julie!
