Yesterday....Sunday....Father's Day...June 20, 2010

I didn't post this yesterday - and so the date will read the 21st....which makes me....LATE!
Yesterday was Father's Day.  A day to remember our dad's and give them recognition and tell them so. 

For my son Josh, it was his very 1st Father's Day - and he was so proud he could now officially join among the thousands of other dads in celebrating the day that they have children....and children celebrating their dads....but for Josh - it was a new child.....his first born son!  He is so proud!!!  And I can see why....Micah is beautiful!!!

For others - it was a joyous celebration - as an elderly couple at church were renewing their vows before the congregation after 62 years of marriage!  WOW!  That was pretty awesome!!!

For some however, it was a painful reminder....that sadly - they don't have their dads here any longer - some for year's past and friends we know -  just recently. The heartache is, at times, seemingly unbearable! And my heart grieves with them - through their pain...... I pray....for comfort and peace~!
But for another set of friends we know - it was a painful reminder that their beloved daughter, who was recently killed in an auto accident - is no longer here to celebrate her birthday!!! The crash sight has now become a cross memorial, bearing her name, and Happy Birthday balloons and flowers now grace the marker and her headstone.  We thought her car was parked close by, and we turned around to find her, but found no one.  Earlier that morning in our Sunday School class, he broke down in relentless tears that flowed easily, along with spurts of broken words spoken through sobs of grief!  My heart  aches for their pain and suffering - and I pray that God can comfort and heal their brokenness!  It's one thing to lose a child - but they also, (in some respects) lost their grand daughter as well.  Since the accident, they have been unable to see their surviving grand daughter - and it's tearing them up inside and out, rendering them incapable of wanting to continue to live!  Lord, I pray for strength, peace and comfort in their brokenness....

As for Steve's Father's Day...
He and I ventured out after church, had lunch at Carrabbas, (YUM!!!), and a brief visit to see  Josh and Danielle and new grandson Micah, and then onward to an uncertain path trying to find land for sale!  We found a few parcels that we want more information about! 
Our son Chris had to work.....which was a bummer!  Josh was busy with his new family, our daughter was in another state - and well...our son and his wife - also in yet another state!  :(
I'm not sure I like this empty nest thing 100%!  In some ways - it has its advantages - and in's kinda sad...and lonely! :(

By the time we ended up home....we were blessed to witness another beautiful, God-given sunset!  Sooo beautiful!!!  God is sooo good!!!

Micah's Arrival...

It was a very loooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggg day yesterday as the doctors administered the petosin drip to induce Danielle's labor.  It was a very long indeed - and for a while we were wondering if he would even be born on Tuesday, June 15, 2010. 

Danielle was pretty tired at the end of the day - being in labor for 13 1/2 hours is pretty taxing on a person!  Whew!  But she did good!

Both baby and momma are doing great - and new daddy Josh is GLEAMING!!!  Or is it GLOWING!  Ha!  BOTH!!!   :))

Micah Aiden Bahr was 6 lbs. 11 oz and 19 1/2" long born at 10:20 pm, Tuesday, June 15, 2010!  And has TONS of blonde hair!  Yeah! :))

Decisions to paint  our plane.  Steve stripped all the paint down and it's an eye sore - not to mention that every time I try to get into it - I get rust on my clothes from the wheel bar/step.  The plane is in Denver at the moment - and in good hands with a good airplane painting company!  The hardest part is trying to figure out how to paint it!!!

But I think we've decided...



A Walk to the pastures...

Today after mowing the lawn, and in addition - also mowing the part of the property in front of the barn behind our house - I took a walk out to the pasture - with my camera - in hand!  It was such a hot and muggy day - and the walk was a LONG one!  Not bad though.  I was  hoping to get  a few pictures of the cows - but I started my walk too late....because by the time I got closer to the cow pasture - the further they walked up the hill further away from me.

I'll attempt this again very soon....I want to get a closer look at our neighboring friends!

Turtle in the garage.....Oh my!!!

Today I was quite startled when I went into the garage and found a large turtle sitting next to my car.  I called Chris to come quickly!  I took a few pictures and then we discussed how we were going to redirect this little fella and set  him on a new course outside!

However, when Chris put his foot close to his back...the turtle turned violent and HISSED and LUNGED toward Chris!  We must have both jumped 5' high!!!  Yikes!  I had sandals - and my toes were uncomfortably close to his mouth!  Ha ha!  I think my adreneline is STILL pumping hours later!

After we took refuge on the steps - we ventured closer to the turtle....Chris took a shovel and helped scoot him out of the garage and onto the grass.  He - or she took off and found another place to hide under our neighbor's bushes! 

Whew!  I won't soon forget that one!!!  Ha ha!!!

Baby Shower Tea

 Josh told me that this soft little airplane blanket will be Micah's favorite! ha ha! :P
I definately think - this is JOSH'S favorite blanket!  :)

Aww Daddy Josh! OH my gosh Josh - you're gonna be a daddy!

It was a beautiful day for the Baby Shower Tea for Danielle and Josh! It started out with rain - but the storm blew on through and sunshine replaced the darkened clouds and torrents of rain!
I think the shower was very nice - and they got a lot of things to help them get started to prepare the arrival of their soon-to-be son Micah!!!

A LOT of their friends from their youth group days came by to pay them a visit....there was soo much yummy food - and really nice fellowship! It was casual, comfortable - and all in all - a very wonderful day! I think everyone had a good time!

The Grandmas!!!
