June 30, 2010 Poolside

Another lazy day spent poolside at Ben's apartment. Love vacation time!

June 29, 2010 Fishing!

More fishing at Pine Hill pay lake.

June 28, 2010 Zoo Trip

Janne and I with a small Jon head...

I have at times called James, Ben, because James reminds me of Ben as a child. If James never gets a tat, I'll call it a bonus. :D

For dinner we had BBQ chicken and Jon broke out the knives sharpener. He's pretty mean with that thing.

The funniest picture of the day. He's a mess.

June 27, 2010 Bass Pro Shopping

A morning trip to the Bass Pro Shop for a bobber, ended up with us spending $100 on a fishing pole, two life jackets, bobber and fishing nets. Go figure. Got hooked into that one, didn't I?

June 26, 2010 Janne and I

Janne is not amused. Actually, she is and you could rewind this picture about 25 years and it would be the same face she makes at my antics.

There's the spirit!!!

June 25, 2010 Team Waterslide

Fun time at the slide at Meme's house. They do this weekly, yet never get tired of it. Too much fun!

June 24, 2010 Boobs and Feet

Jon took this picture, if you can't tell. Jesse is offering me Cheeto's and discussing the possibility of her possibly maybe being able to pick some tomatoes. She couldn't because they weren't ready.

One of my favorite quirks of Jesse's is that she insists on wearing her shoes on the wrong feet....EVERY SINGLE DAY. She knows they are on the wrong foot, but insists that she likes it this way. Different strokes...and her own drummer at that is what I say.

June 23, 2010 Water Woosh!

Fun pool time at Uncle Ben's apartment! Ben and Janne bought Jesse her first 2 piece bikini bathing suit. Momma wasn't quite sure how she felt about it. ha!

June 22, 2010 Hair Dressing

Jesse has watered down and brushed her hair and now she is working on James' hair. Person hygiene is good to learn early, don't ya think?

June 21, 2010 Aunt Nanny!

Woot Woot! Aunt Nanny is HERE!!! J&J took no time in getting reacquainted with their Aunt Nanny. Me? Loved having my sister with me for two weeks.

June 19th no pic, Here is June 20, 2010 FlySwatter

My little fly swatter. It is a daily event for J&J to go through the house and catch the flies either by hand or with the fly swatter. They don't kill them, they catch them, then play with them, and sometimes squish them in their exuberance. The dress Jesse is wearing is sized 2T and she is a 4T. She loves to wear her little dresses as tops.

June 14-17 Lost Here is June 18, 2010 Fishing

My girl and I at Pine Hill pay lake in Mason, Ohio. She was hot and tired after fishing almost 8 hours. I like to wear Grandpa's white v-neck Hanes t-shirts with my camo capri's to go fishing. I don't know why, but the Hanes shirts have become my wardrobe staple to wear under work clothes and on my days off.

June 13, 2010 The Migration

Dinosaurs, pink ponies and turtles! Oh MY! J&J spent the afternoon playing outside where the water on top of the dog cage featured the safe haven for their animals. Whereas the grass was a place of high danger.

They play for hours with these toys. Imagination central.

June 12, 2010 Pink Cowgirl

Reagan and Addison's birthday party was this day and part of the festivities was decorating cowgirl hats. Jesse's rocks.

June 11, 2010 Uncle Josh Bait Company

June 9 is lost Here is June 10, 2010 New Hair

I got some new hair. In sapling green.

June 8, 2010 Bad Mood Puss

Nuff said. This boy had enough of that little girl in pink.

June 7, 2010 Grandpa's Garden

Jesse is helping Grandpa with the corn. Grandpa was thinning out the extra stalks and pulling dirt into the row to inhibit the growth of weeds. It was good to have him out there with us. He seemed confused on why Jesse stuck with him for over an hour, but she did and non-stop talking to him, asking him questions. I can only imagine the wisdom he imparted to her. I was busy in the bean and pea row pulling weeds. I'd glance back and they'd have their heads together talking. It made my heart smile.

June 6, 2010 Cornhole

J&J played cornhole at Debbie and R.B.'s when we went for Amber and Jasan's Open House. It was a great party. Good visiting, good people, good time. I took 12 oz strawberry jam jars for several couples and extra 4 oz jars for the guests.

June 5, 2010 Mr. and Ms. Miagi

J&J caught all these flies by hand and put them in their Lady Bug House.

June 4, 2010 Chevy Skull

My favorite emblem ever.

June 3, 2010 Muddy Gardening

It was a muddy many hours spent weeding out the garden.

June 1st lost Here is June 2, 2010

Jesse bouncing on the trampoline at Brian and Kim's house. It was Brittany's 9th Birthday party.

Baby girl gets braver and braver every year.

First time I ever braided Jesse's hair.

May 29, 2010 Strawberry Shortcake

May 28, 2010 Guy Snooze

May 27, 2010 Work Relocated

Lunchtime in the AC!

May 26, 2010 Gardening

Planting beans!!!
James fascination with bugs is pretty intense.

Dennie sticking out his tongue is classic.

James is digging up the oil that Jon emptied into the garden. Grandpa overfilled the rototiller with oil and Jon drained it at the edge of the garden. He's really conscientious about stuff like that...

May 25, 2010 More Olives

They love black olives!

May 24, 2010 Strawberries

Jesse is picking strawberries, but what caught my eye after taking the picture and seeing it on the computer screen, is her two freckles on her head. Too cute!

May 23, 2010 Olives

Peace, Dude!

May 22, 2010 Shower Fun!

They look like they are having fun!

May 21, 2010 Puzzles at Grandpa Gene's

On this day, Jesse and I attended Ryder's baby shower. James and Jon went to Grandpa's and we met them there later. We picked strawberries and then came in the house to spend some time with Grandpa. I remember days like this with my Grandma and I hope that J&J have similar happy memories.

May 18 and 19 are Lost. Her is May 20, 2010

Jon's midnight vigil for the elusive 2 foot, 15 pound catfish he swears is in Grandpa's pond.

Yes, fish have teeth, James.

My man. My Guy. :D

May 17, 2010 Roses

It rained this day and the roses were gorgeous. We spent the day at the National Air Force Museum and it was pretty impossible to pick just one picture from that outing. This one, though, probably describe my 3 hour experience...

Jon's experience was a bit more relaxing, I think.

May 16, 2010 Playtime!

It is their clothes that catch my attention. Jesse's new dress that she put on backwards and James skull shorts. Too cute!
