This weekend I took some time on Saturday to sit at the Polk strawberry festival that's held every June. That's when the strawberries are ripe and juicy and great for making homemade icecream and having an old fashion icecream social and kiddie carnival. Booths are set up for vendors to peddle "whatever"..our hospital decided to set up a site to peddle our "total joints"...you know, knee, hip, shoulder, ankle,wrist,finger..well you get the point. I'm not sure Polk really will bring tons of patients our way, but we sat there anyway! This is a picture of downtown Polk..yep, just a cross road with a general store. I'm not kidding..that is the Polk general store. Hey, don't knock it, it has an ATM and I'm sure you can rent DVDs if you need to. You should blow this pic up to really get the true flavor...it would really be perfect if an Amish buggy was passing by when I took the shot. I could have gotten closer for the pic, but I didn't want them to think I was making fun of them. You know, the city slicker taking a pic of the hick joint.
People found the charts interesting. It is fun to look at xrays..atleast I think it is!
Here are the demo implants that we had to show what exactly goes into your new knee when it gets "replaced". Aren't they pretty? Maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea!
Father's Day was Sunday...a time to express our love and appreciation for our Dads. Jack's Dad passed away in 2001 and my Dad passed away in 1976. We both miss them and sure wish we could say to their faces how much we loved them. I know someday we will all meet again and Im really grateful for Jack and for being a good Dad to our boys. Thanks babe for all you do and all you've done to help raise those crazy and wonderful guys who now are Dad's themselves..except for Jordan..unless you count Eddy of course! Phil, Amanda and the girls stopped by on the Dad circuit..first us and then Amanda's Dad on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by and the girls took a few moments to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather for a dip in the pool.
Addy is trying to figure out why YaYa put that hat on her head..I don't think she liked it.
Lexi didn't care about wearing that silly hat, she was happy to float around in the pool and enjoy the day!
