R insists that H be able to take care of the car before we get him one of his own. The little guy is growing up so fast that he is already pushing for one by helping with the washing. Good thing we have age limits on our side or he would be driving by his sixth birthday. R kind of hopes this happens so that he can drive daddy and uncle Ciege around. Fat chance!

This is not an art gallery. The occupants of this home are seriously behind the whole Ducks Unlimited thing. This picture does not do it justice. This is only half of the view when you come in the front door. R says that each of these usually run several hundred dollars. Quack indeed!

My mom and I were personal assistants to my sister today. She's working on a tight budget and is hunting for 70's ties and shirts. We found a couple of options at the Junk Queen and sent her the pics so we'll see if we make the cut. Check out her blog Costume Woodshedding to learn more about the world of costume designing.

We were lucky and had a chance to sneak off to the movies today. I tried to get the full screen of the title but it was too much motion for my slow shutter speed. I read the book "Angels and Demons" a couple of years ago and it had been long enough for me to enjoy the movie. The views of Rome brought back memories of my time in Italy.

Forest Gump lives on our road. He's been running around our lake for as long as I've known (20 years). Every weekday you'll find him completely out of breath looking like he can't go any further. I kind of wonder if he enjoys it or if it's an obsession . . .

There's a summer produce stand I've had my eye on for years. I don't know why I've never stopped but I finally made an effort today. I couldn't resist the fresh green beans and new potatoes. Lately, I've been reading and listening to discussions about Local vs. Organic and reducing your carbon footprint. Today, I was happy to support a local merchant.

Yes, that's what little girls are made of. Here's the latest cutest baby on the block. Miss E is 7-months and a total laid back sweetheart. She's trying to figure out the whole crawling thing. I give her parents 3 more weeks before the baby proofing panic starts.

Welcome to toddlerhood, a place where you turn your back for 5 seconds then turn back around only to realize your lil' monkey has left the planet. H decided to climb through the shoe basket to get to the other side. I had to laugh (so silly) and spot him to make sure he didn't fall and bump his noggin. I wonder what tomorrow will bring . . .

Today, May 14th was a day of celebrations. First, we tied the knot 4 years ago today! I guess because we've been together for 8 1/2 it seems longer (this is a good thing). Harrison turned 13 months and officially is into everything. AND Ryan's dad's surgery went very well and he's on an upward hill towards recovery.

As I mentioned the other day, it's been raining and raining and raining (you get the picture). However to a one-year-old, this provides a new learning opportunity. Rain drops falling from the eaves are easier to catch and no less fascinating than the ones from the clouds.

I can't believe our lil' B is not so little anymore. Okay, she towers over Ryan and me. Today I had the pleasure of taking her senior photos. She'll probably be embarrassed I included the last photo but I love the enthusiasm in her expression. We love you B.

The lighting was perfect last weekend for a shot of Grandpa's tractor. He purchased it quite a few years ago and we wondered if he would ever get it in working condition. It took some time, but it has a new life in the garden with him.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for grandpa during this time.

Harrison has now mastered the phone (cell and landline). On Ryan's cell, he tends to dial 5224, not really sure who this French woman is but he seems to like her. His new game with the cordless phone is to press the locator button then grab the phone and say "holla". So if you ever receive calls from us, there's a good chance we aren't on the other end.

I thought we escaped the rain but it hasn't been the case for the past week. Here's an image from the boat dock covered with debris. Quite a few bottles were washed up also. Sometimes I wonder how hard it is to find a trash can, apparently very.
