seedy sorter

Lucas seperating out the pumpkin seeds to return some to my sister. More pumpkins for next year! He's sitting next to the carved pumpkin he designed.

Splash baby!

Zachary loves his bath. He makes big splashes and tries to swim. I look forward to taking him to a pool when it's warmer.

Many faces of Timmy

Timmy carved four faces on his pumkpin (well, he drew, I cut).

Farm revisited

Lucas was not in the mood for lessons, and it was a beautiful day, so we went back to my sister's farm on Wednesday. We fed the chickens, collected the eggs, and built a fire before my sister arrived from her errand. The goats were curious about Zachary in his bright blue chair. The pond, that was just a hole dug many months ago, is now full!

Fall Festival

Aunt Melanie invited us to join them at the Summit Fall Festival Sunday. We had a great time, and it was Zach's turn to wear the pumpkin costume.

anniversary outing

We celebrated my parent's 39th anniversary by going out to my sister's farm to help her burn the trees she cut down last spring, now that the burn ban is lifted. It was a beautiful day, but we only made a small dent in the stick population.

Waiting for the baseball game, which was canceled because the field was too muddy. If you looks at the big picture, you can see the reflection of the sky in his eyes.

Zach had a play date with his cousin last Thursday. There's only an 8-month age difference, and they already enjoy playing together.

Evening at the park

We spent a few hours at the park after school last Tuesday. Timmy and Lucas enjoyed playing in the sand with a friend from school. Zach tried out the baby swing for the first time.

All tucked in and ready to sleep... on the couch cushions in the middle of the living room. Lucas took this shot.


Lucas and Timmy create a high chair for watching TV (I think they spent longer building it than watching the TV)

happy monster baby

Trying to catch Zach's smile on camera.

growth spurt

Here is Zachary (3 months) next to a three week old baby. It's amazing how fast babies grow.

little lamb

Just thought this was a cute hand-made shirt, even if he'll probably outgrown it in a week or so. I think he weighs about 18 pounds now.

Field trip

Zach and I chaperoned a field trip that Lucas' class took to the Zoo Keeper exotic pet store this morning. Here are the bearded dragon and the red-eyed tree frog.

Hello baby

Lucas took the first picture of his little brother, I took the second. There's just something amazing about babies, especially their smiles and laughter.

Cub Scouts

Lucas finally made it to his first Cub Scout meeting last weekend. Although he was reluctant to go, he had a great time.
