I've lived in this town for 11 years now and live only a few miles from the Lock and Dam but have never seen a boat go thru the lock. I didn't even know how it worked. So when a small cruise shipped docked at the Riverview restaurant for a few days and we found out that it was going to go thru the lock when it left town we decided to go watch it. It was pretty nifty how it all worked. So here is the Niagara Prince entering the lock.

Shelly, Miles and Esther came up for a little bit today. We went to McDonalds and had lunch first and let the kids run crazy in the playground area. Then we came back home and the boys and Esther got on the trampoline. And yes I did too.
It's scrappy time. I'm working on two challenges at a time. I'm trying to get the weekly sketch challenges completed for Scrapshare so I am combining them with the Scrapbook Heaven challenges. This SB Heaven challenge called for using mostly black and white papers with minimal color. But it had to include a heart somewhere.
It's Happy Father's day time. Everyone descended upon our house to celebrate the dads. Dad and Glen prepared and cooked Cornish game hens on the grill while mom and I took care of the parsley potatoes, wild rice, and corn. Oh yeah Glen also made yummy cauliflower salad. And for dessert we had some great strawberry shortcake using the last of Betty's homegrown strawberries. And it was delicious! It was a really great evening spent with the family just chilling. Here is a pic of the guys.
