the great outdoors...

 In another post, I will show you how many pictures it took to get this one with all of them smiling AND looking my way!
Nothing clears the heart and mind as well as a leisurely walk through the woods with the family.  Today we were waiting to hear about a bid we put on yet another house{still have not heard about that,} and our dear sweet dog Max is not doing well at all.  He had a tumor removed while I was in Colombia, and he now has another tumor, and we are afraid it may be cancer.  He is in a ton of pain so we took him back to the vet today and he gave us some stronger pain meds to make him comfortable.  So sad!  I have never really cared all that much for an animal before, but I absolutely adore Max!

 We thought we may be a tad late looking for morels, but Spencer was the first to spot one, and the next and the next...all together he found 35!!!
 I found a few, Lucy kept watching me stare at the ground, and bend over and pick up a morel so she would bend over and grab a few leaves and hand them to me.  I think she was totally confused as to what we were looking for!  Sweet girl.
 Jayden found a few too!
 Anaya kept saying "I found one!", but then she would say..."nope!"  Funny girl.
The boys were sucessful in turkey hunting this year, not the daddy though!!  He had his chance, but he just can't shoot straight!=)
 Jayden and his huge tom with a 9 and 3/4 inch beard!
 And Dylan shot this jake earlier in the season.

 The boys went out fishing and we had our first fish fry a few weeks ago!
Psalm 104:24 {The Message}
What a wildly wonderful world, God!
      You made it all, with Wisdom at your side,
      made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.

Wow! I am so jealous! Morels, wild turkey and fresh fish! I would have thought i had died and gone to heaven! All we have over here in the flatlands is a bunch of squirrels that have been hit by cars multiple times. I would love some walleye and wild MI blueberries right about now!
