How weird that I think I HAVE to put up pig roast pictures. Like someone is following me around saying "You have not blogged about ______ yet." Laura, Clover, and I think Olivia have already done enough Pig Roast pictures. But I would like to stake out my own little million-pictures-of-one-weekend corner, so just TRY to stop me.
I just went to Olivia's blog to get her url to link to up there and I saw this picture...
LOVE it! What a pig. Livia has some cool pictures. Check them out.
Well I am glad that there was no further ado there because that would have been excessive.
The first happening on Saturday morning (for ME anyway) was Owen's motorcycle fell over. No, this isn't headline news in anyway, I just thought it was funny.
Then Dale and Clover picked it up because they are nice
The smoker, doing it's thing
The guys doing their corn shucking thing
JoAnna and I walked up to the baseball game and Rilla came flying down the lane to see us.
I love this picture

One hundred ears of corn, ultra awesome corn.
Lucy's fruit salad
Penny's out of this world salad
Andrea's deviled eggs and I can't remember if that is Wendy's Canadian coleslaw or something completely different
A salad Ginger made--pure summer in a bowl.
Linda's salad--how could you go wrong with a tangy dressing, onions, and tomatoes? You can't.
Clover's coleslaw--you can't have pulled pork without coleslaw!
They played rotational volleyball. A lot.
Katharine, Chris, and Wendy
Dad doing bubbles with Gilbert
Laura, Katharine, and Dale. Apparently Katharine liked being in couple pictures

The mud puddle was the kids paradise this day. If only I could get this excited about mud... Life would be more exciting.

The kids thought filling this baby carriage with mud was BRILLLLiant.

Game done, switch over
Olivia is apparently the outcast

We are slowly but surely trying to turn Fiona into a farm girl
Fortunately, the Fire Department of Bronson was there to help us with our bonfire
Bug spray. And Lincoln high stepping through the grass
They unearthed the pump organ, which had been in a 15 year retirement. Justin looks like he just DARING someone to say otherwise.
Austin pumped away
Gilbert wanted DOWN. Mainly to go poke at the fire.

And that is all. Phew. I am worn to a frazzle. Pictures will do that to you. I will now go unfrazzle myself by contemplating laundry while I think about what to make Lily and Gilbert for lunch.
