Football Days

The gridiron has new characters for us to observe... one of them came up in the stands to see us.

This is Hunter BEFORE the game. Wish you could have seen the AFTER... Proud and sweaty...they'd played a great game with an outcome of 20-6!!! Everyone was slapping him on the back for all the great work he'd done, whole family standing around, taking it in.



All we had for picture-taking was a phone... maybe we'll do better next time. Watch for Number 11.

The All-Underwood Birthday Party

September 5 is Hunter's birthday but he generously shared it with Dave, Amy, and Blake... it was convenient for all of the family to gather just one time instead of four. Here's a little overview: Happy birthday cake to Dave, Hunter, Blake, and Amy. Host and greeter for the party was Blake... he also planned the entertainment...games, of course.
This birthday banner has been recycled about fifteen times :)
The chef organized buffet-style food service... dining out on the deck in perfect weather made the day truly comfortable.

Landon's checking out the digs...
Cousins in croquet...that's cousin Zach on the left...
Hunter whipped up some smoothies for everyone  after he took orders for blueberry, raspberry, or strawberry.

When it came to gift opening, Hunter's wish was granted~~ he's been longing for a SOFT toilet seat in the Jack-and-Jill john he shares with Blake
See---even the lid is soft. :)
Cutting cake...that's Aunt Julie and Grandma Jonita, Zach,and Hunter.
