We forgot to take pictures of us playing music together -- this is the only picture we took!We're still picking and selling lots of watermelons and cantaloupes.Jonathan takes a break from hauling melons. Stocking our produce stand for the day. Here is our largest cantaloupe so far. It was quite a bit bigger than an NFL football! And...a few insect photos...

Our Weekend

This weekend a friend of ours got married. Two other families that we know came in from out of town for the wedding.
We were so glad to get to see the Edmondson family again! They came over for a visit after the wedding.
Ruthie and Kit Noah, Jill and Paul with the other 4 kittens Mrs. Edmondson and Mama The Stanleys also came in for the wedding, and afterwards they spent the night with us. Pastor Stanley preached at our church Sunday morning. We all had a great visit with them. Here are a few more pictures that were taken of the children playing after church during the past few weeks
