Bundy Reunion 2016















I really didn't think this would be Grandpa's last reunion.  It won't be the same without him.  When we were out at the reunion, people often approached him and asked him how he was feeling.  He always said the same thing: "With my fingers!"  Love that man and his humor.

Bradford's 6th Birthday

 This was the spanking machine at the end of Bradford's birthday party.
 Brad got a lot of fun toys from everyone. Thanks!

 Bradford's friend Henry made a crown for him for his birthday.




Sade was so great to help Bradford with the pinata for his birthday. He told me that all he wanted to do for his birthday was have a pinata and a swimming party. He got his wish!

Branding 2016

 I have a lot of good childhood memories of branding. So glad my kids can experience it too.

 Phillip did a whole lot of calf hauling when we branded.


 You didn't think that having a baby on Thursday would keep this girl and her family from going branding on Monday, did you?


 Bronson got to round up the cows with Phillip. He was happy to ride the four wheeler!
These kiddos sat quietly contained in this trailer while the cows were rounded up and brought to the corrals for branding.

60th Wedding Anniversary for Grandma and Grandpa Bundy


 We got a photo of all the babies born in the last year.
 Phillip thought it would be funny to get a picture of all of us struggling to get our babies arranged before taking the pic. Sadly, he didn't bother to take one of us when we were all set.
The kids performed Give Said the Little Stream: Grandpa's favorite:)

Stella's Dance Performance

 This girl did such a great job at her dance performance. She knew all the steps so well and made some great new friends.



Bradford's Kindergarten Patriotic Concert

 Bradford knew the songs so well for his concert. In fact, he knew them so well, that Stella also had them memorized from his constant singing. The kids learned so many great songs. Brad loved the experience!


Each student made their own patriotic shirt. He did a great job.

Payoda

 So we have a goat! We bought her from my cousin. Her name is Payoda (Pie-oh-duh). Stella wanted to name her Ballerina Princess....As awesome as that sounded, we thought we should get some other ideas:) We are going to eventually try to milk her, so we looked up names associated with milk. Payoda means cloud, giver of water, or giver of milk in Indian.
 We have been growing oats for said goat since January. So happy they are getting trimmed by Payoda now:) As you can see in the above pic, they were getting tall.
Okay, why am I reminded of The Emperor's New Groove in this pic? Phillip was very concerned about Payoda getting wet in all the rain we have been receiving. (Sadly, I didn't worry at all). He wanted to build her a shelter that would protect her without giving her a foot stool with which to jump out of her pen. Good idea, huh? She is happy anyway. So far, Stella loves her most. I am just glad she hasn't escaped and started eating our fruit trees:)
