Let's Play Ball

The Spectators

The Pitcher

The Target! Gosh Darn It, the dang raccoons found us again!

It's been a good summer

Ummm, guess we should have picked this green onion a 'little' sooner

They continue to share a bedroom AND bed

Alice is taking on Mom's style, a tank top every day of the summer

The gang over for a BBQ

The Harvest of the Evening - We met some friends from college who just moved here (Chris & Emily Allen), and they have the greatest kids who had a good time in our garden.

Good times on the swing with Uncle Frank pushing the limits of how high the swing goes.

A few more from Camp Saw

Getting used to the horses.....

Hi Pretty Eyes!

Apparently they would pack up their backpacks and go on a play pretend trip in the Hot Rod. Not sure who (or what) Kyle is yelling at!

The start of feeding ducks

Kyle chasing ducks (and geese - not smart)

hmmm, I wonder where all the ducks went? Shocking, they don't like to be chased.

Extra Cheese

Camp Saw 2011

The kids have been at my parents all week at Camp Saw. As you can see, I think the kids are having a grand 'ol time. Tom and I have had the most productive week on house, and today we drive over there today to pick 'em up. Thanks Mom and Dad for watching the kiddos!!!!

Master Gardener Training

My parents stopped by on their way home from camping for one night, and my mom (the Master Gardener) could not resist working in the yard. Of course the kids wanted to help as well.

Not sure if he's excited that he's about to cut flowers or that he has some garden clippers.

Busy cutting flowers for a bouquet

The bouquet in it's fancy container - The Cooler

Soooooo Happy!

Would you like some fries with that?

Cooking 101

Alice LOVES cooking. She threw a tantrum when she was 2 because I wouldn't let her watch Ina the Barefoot Contessa. Now she watches, Bobby Flay, Giada and Ina to name a few. Don't get me wrong, she'll choose a kid program over cooking shows, but I still find it hilarious when she's walking through a store and says 'Look mom, Giada made that' as she's pointing to an obscure veggie.

Chicken Parm 101 - Thankfully she is not squeamish handling raw chicken (I hate it)!

Dad super excited about his cooking prodigy.

Although Kyle knows who Ina is and gets excited to show people the arugula in our backyard, he's more into the snacking.
