We were killing time in the car, waiting for D & A to get out of science class.

Making Graham Cracker Houses

Graham cracker turned out to be much cheaper than the kits kats we used last year.


No joke

I went to step out of the suburban and almost stepped onto a banana peel.


Now that is some good advertising!

Now that is some good advertising!

The rainbow ends right over Wells Fargo.
Alex took the picture (moving car + cell phone photo).


A burial at sea is just so expensive...

A burial at sea is just so expensive...

Oh, the guilt. We really did try to fix (save) Walter the yard ornament polar bear.


Creepy Turtle

Creepy Turtle

"Dude, what is up with the creepy turtle someone left on the kitchen counter??"

This turtle has some serious teeth. (Turtle is a toy...as already have flesh eating hamster responding to the name Vader).


Hammy

Hammy

I probably traumatized our sweet little (non flesh eating) hamster by taking this picture of her. But isn't she cute?


Invisible.

Invisible.

Maybe, if I hide inside my own shirt she will not see me and I will not have to do my math....


Surprise!

Surprise!

Alex.

Actually, Max on the big cement ball in front of Target.


Ninja

Ninja

He either sounds like he is going to come through the ceiling when he walks upstairs or he is a silent ninja who totally startles me by just appearing when I look up.

I think the loudness must be to throw off my senses.


"Can we just go and look?"

"Can we just go and look?"

Twice a week we are in Wal-Mart for music lessons.
Every single time they ask, "Can we just go an look in the toy department? Real quick?"

I finally said, "Do you REALLY think they changed anything since we were here last?"

We walked over and they had reset the whole thing.
They looked at me with smug validation on their faces.


Blurry

Accidental phone photo of my feet walking thru Target.

He counted out a certain number of pebbles for his bite because he said the commercial recommended a certain amount per bite.


How do I look?

How do I look?

"How do I look?" he asked.
"Super."


Are you ok?

Are you ok?

Alex, just after falling off his boogie board and taking in large amounts of salt water.

I did ask if he was ok.
Right after I took this picture.


Race Madison

My niece, Madison, being a race car driver in her new (Max's old) race car driver outfit. Love the blur.


The tree

The tree

D & A climb a tree that we have been posing for photos in front of (at the beach) since they were babies.

We didn't let them climb it when they were babies, though.

The old TV (on the right) did finally give out.
The new TV (on left and held by Alex) is lovely.
