Hoping for Rain

We would so like some rain, there are clouds but so far our area hasn't gotten anything. Which will cause me to have to hand water either this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

We had some of the children and grands together yesterday for Father Day down at 4th sons house in Lewiston, there is always a hole where the others are missing. 

The day had started off with our 14 month old calf roaming around the back yard. At least it is easy to bribe back in where it belongs, then get ready for Church.

Our daughter Tanya her hubby Tim and grandson Bradon were up from AZ. It had been a couple of years since they were able to come up.  

We were hoping to be able to make it down to their place and on ward further south to visit daughter Coral, Kirk and grand children. Sure doesn't look like that will be possible.
Coral gets her Masters at the end of June.

Our youngest Son and wife move off to Tacoma WA next week :(. I know they all move off at sometime but sheesh. At least we got to see them once in awhile while they lived in the area.
