It has been a while so here is some pictures I have taken with my Nikon D5000
Baby Sea Lions - Depot Bay Oregon June 2010
The pictures above were taken at the Oregon Coast. The Critters were at Depot Bay and the Rocks on the beach was in Lincoln City just outside our motel room. God is good and His Handy work is everywhere!
For Months we couldn't figure out what we had growing in our garden. This week God reveled the seeds that were sown.
There is more story to this pumpkin patch then meets the eye.
My daughter and a friend of hers was out back one October 2009 evening carving pumpkins. They had thrown some seeds in the garden unbeknown to us adults. While carving my daughters hand got stabbed with a knife from the top to bottom it went clear thru her hand. We rushed her to the ER and her poor friend was just over taken with worry and sorrow. This was clearly an accident and I felt bad for both girls at this point. My daughter was a total drama queen that night, and yes she was hurt but some of the things she said was later so funny to all of us. Her hand has healed and she has a "cool" little scar to show off. No lingering effects just a lot of inner circle jokes.
We had forgotten all about the "pumpkin incident" and didn't think about the pumpkin mess in the back yard till we started getting these plants this spring after we tilled the garden and laid tarps down to keep the weeds from growing. For months we thought it was left over yellow summer squash from last year. This week we saw the true roots of the seeds that were sown. This pumpkin patch grew out of terrible situation that has turned into many laughs.
And now we get to laugh some more. I will be sharing more pumpkin pictures as the summer grows on.
This is my car on July 5th 2010. One of my kids drove it into the back of someone elses car. Nobody was hurt and for that we are thankful! My car will be fixed and soon I will laugh about this too! God is faithful to see to all of our needs. He is control in the good times and the not so good times. He sees us through and gives us memories to laugh, cry, or just say Ahhhhhh I get it now!
Have a blessed Summer!
