Memorial Day

Remembering those who have sacrificed for our freedom…

…with unending gratitude.

Last day of preschool

It’s hard to believe it’s already the end of May! The end of May means the end of preschool for the year. Even though Caden will be going to the “extension program” for the next two weeks, today was his official last day with his regular class.

Look at how he’s changed!


You Capture-Sky

I didn’t do much for this week’s assignment until today. I wasn’t sure if I was going to come up with anything, and then Mother Nature sent us a weird weather system that dumped huge raindrops on our house (and all over the inside, too, since our windows were open!) and brought […]

I Heart Faces: Yellow

Over at I Heart Faces, the theme is “Yellow”. While snapping away as the boys played outside today, I realized the Slip ‘N Slide was yellow, and I could maybe catch a fun shot to enter this week. I happen to really like this one!

You can see a lot more yellow over […]

It was a hot one!

The temperature was in the low 90’s again today, extremely unseasonably warm, and very humid. So we pulled out our sprinkler and Slip ‘N Slide! (Warning: LOTS of pictures ahead!)

At first, they weren’t so sure.


You Capture: Depth of Field

I really didn’t think I’d get this post up and ready. I’m up to my elbows in rummage sale stuff. We’ve been prepping for weeks, and finally the weekend is here and we’ve got wonderful weather! I’m purging a bunch of baby stuff, and it feels kind of good (even though I’m […]

A nice way to end the day

After work today (a day I thought would be short, where I’d be home by 12:00, but ended up being a long, full day), I was ready to come home and relax on the sofa, reading the paper, looking at catalogs from the mail, and finishing Thursday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York” […]

You Capture: Yellow

I’m back this week, and I had some fun taking pictures of some yellow crayons.

I was surprised to find only four shades of yellow in our big box of crayons. I don’t know what I expected, but I guess I expected to find more than […]

Fun at the Brewer game

We took advantage of the 5-Day, 5-County Celebration to get half-price tickets and landed ourselves in the ninth row down the left field foul line. They were pretty great seats, but it was hard for the boys to see from that low. We still managed to have a good time (despite a pretty bad loss […]


Andy returned home today from a business trip in India. Yup, I.N.D.I.A. Yikes! He was lucky enough to be there with a man who was born in Calcutta and loves to show people around the country. They spent the day on Saturday in Agra, visiting the Taj Mahal. A-MAZ-ING!
