Enjoyed a visit from granddaughter Skylar Lagrone and friend James this weekend. Skylar will be leaving Sept. 21 for basic training in the U.S. Army. We love her and are very proud of her.
On Sunday afternoon, family and friends of Bradley Bakken helped him celebrate his fifth birthday out at the Lagrone farm. Water guns were the toys and cooling down was the game of choice. Of course, it wasn’t just the children getting wet. Hot dogs, cake and ice cream was enjoyed by all.
