Father's Day

Today was a great day. First we let Wayne sleep in late, then we served him breakfast in bed. I made biscuits, sausage, eggs and gravy and the kids brought it to him. After he go up he thought we should go somewhere. So we went on a road trip today :)

We went to Hawks Nest and New River Gorge. Cody's friend Blake is up here for some of the summer so it was nice being able to show him some of our beautiful state.
We had a picnic lunch at the bottom of Hawks Nest on the river. That is always fun, we have done that before. Wayne saw a man that he grew up with while we were there, so it was nice for him to be able to catch up with him. They had several hummingbird feeders there and the birds were feeding. We were actually able to get some pictures of them.

I was able to get some pictures of people coming off of the white water on the New River under the New River Gorge bridge. That was fun to watch. Blake couldn't believe that they close the outside lanes of the bridge each year for one day in October so that people can parachute and bungee jump from the bridge. Being from the flatland of southeast Texas, he was in awe.

Right now it is about 11:20 p.m. Ariel has a friend spending the night and them and Cody and Blake are outside playing "spotlight". They are having a ball! One good thing from it....maybe it will keep the coons, opposums and bears out of the garbage cans tonight....Oh and maybe the coyotes won't come in so close to the house either. If you have never heard them yelp, then it will scare the crap out of you when you first hear them. It is tough to get back to sleep when they wake you up out of a sound sleep too!!! :)
