We are still in Harmonie SP.  Doing some workcamping again this week.  We had alot of rain last week and that means fewer campers.

One of the neatest things about this park is the hummingbirds.  We have three feeders up and are filling them up at least once a day.  We have one feeder on our back window that we have to fill two or three times a day.  We don't know why the birds like this feeder so well, but the do.  Sometimes we have as many as eight to tens birds trying to feed at once.  In fact, below is a picture of two birds feeding at the same "flower" at the same time, which we have never seen before!

We are volunteering at a State Park till the end of June.  We have to put in 20 hours of work and we get our campground site free of charge.  This is not too bad.  The work is outdoors and Larry does more than his share, most of the time.

My friend Jean was in the park today to visit with her Mom and Dad who are here with their camping group.  It was good to see her and Brent, even if it was for short while.  Her parents and their friends came over and ask Larry if he would come over and play and sing a few songs.  Of course they did not have to ask twice.  I went over with him and we had a good time.  They are a friendly bunch.

See you all later!

Happy Birthday Bob!!!

Larry and I are volunteering at Harmonie State Park for the next couple of weeks if anyone is out this way stop in and visit us!!

This past weekend I had my Family Reunion and all of my siblings were able to attend. Hooray!!  It was great to see everybody and their families.  My son Jason also came for the whole weekend.  I had a great time and was sorry to see it end.

Many of my nieces and nephews now have children and I really appreciate the effort and time they take out of their busy schedules to attend.  I absolutely love seeing these young nieces and nephews!

Here are a couple of boys - Paxton and James.

We also took a side trip to the Exotic Feline Sanctuary near Centerpoint, IN.  We were able to see tigers, lions, cougars and bob cats up close.  These are animals that have been rescued for various reason.  If you are in the area stop by and for $10.00 get a tour.  Our tour lasted about an hour and a half.  The day we went it was very hot and the animals were not real active, but it was still good.
