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!

May 15, 2010 1500 Piece Puzzle

Nuff said. 4 days. :D

May 14, 2010 Zhu Zhu Pets

Are evil little creatures. My favorite is Jesse carrying these guys around in her bag and they will get to chittering and she'll say, "SHUT UP YOU!". It is hysterical.

May 11, 12 and 13, 2010 More Teamwork Fishing

Jesse reels in the fish. James grabs it.

James wriggles the hook to get it out. Jesse pets the fish.

Squint, boy, squint!!! Get that hook out!

I find it absolutely liberating that James can now take the hook out. One more worry off my chest when fishing with them. :D

May 10, 2010 Flower Power?

J&J helped Jon plant flowers in the front flower beds this day. While it is cool that my kids are budding gardeners and flower whisperers, what I find fascinating about this picture is the following: Why is my little girl wearing Spiderman boy underwear?

May 9, 2010 Poop Scooper

Good News! At age 5, my son is convinced that scooping poop is fun!!!! Boy does it every day. I'm very blessed. Wonder how long this will last?

May 6 & 7 got lost Here is May 8, 2010

J&J did puzzles in the morning.

Visited the Jones Cattle Farm in the evening.

On this day, James learned how to ride a scooter thingie. He loved it!

May 5, 2010 Dennie and The Tractor

This picture could have been taken 50 years ago. Well, more like 30 years ago and Dennie would have been a wee bit smaller and younger, but yeah, total time warp is happening. We are in Grandpa's garden preparing to plant cucumbers and Dennie is plowing using Grandpa's tractor. It is a beast.

May 4, 2010 More Fishing!

Two things about this picture. 1. See that face? The squint? He comes by it honestly from his momma. 2. On this day, James learned how to cast using that nifty whatamacallit thingie where you have to put your thumb on the line, flip the half circle thingie and cast and release. Wish I was a fisherman so I could be all technical about it, instead I'm a pointer "THTHTHTHAT THING!!!" kinda person when it comes to fishing.

May 3, 2010 Fish, Weather and Hair

It all ties together somehow....

May 2, 2010 Puzzles!

J&J are working Disney puzzles, specifically they are working on the Cars puzzle.

May 1, 2010 Birthday Party!

Happy Birthday, Jesse! Jon decorated her cake and she got 5 zhu zhu pets and a new Barbie bicycle.

April 30, 2010 Jesse's Birthday

We took Jesse to Donato's Pizza for her birthday dinner. Where she promptly ate all the black olives off her pizza. Girl loves black olives.

Her party was the next day.

April 29, 2010 Swing Fun!

Swings are better upside down...

April 28, 2010 Pea Planting

We planted our started pea plants and seed pea plants. A few days later it was obviously the starter peas got weather shock and we had to replant with new seeds.

April 27, 2010 Tea and A Book

Reading Diana Gabaldon Echo in the Bone while drinking sweet tea on a Tuesday morning. :)

April 26, 2010 Suckers!

James has this face whenever I pull out the camera. ha!
