Enjoying Nature

The boys found some mushrooms in the backyard they wanted to check out.

Andy called this stick an "alligator"
Do you see its mouth?  I love how he's looking at it ☺

There have been quite a few butterflies around and we managed to catch one!

She was really excited we caught a butterfly ♥

John Greene's Grave

Sarah's class was studying about our town history.  One day she came home with information about the founder of our town and where his grave was.  The next day, we took a family "field trip" out to the cemetery to find it.

We found it!

Sarah wanted to measure it

The kids thought this dog was neat

I found this gravestone interesting.  You will know why if you have watched the "Underworld" movies

By the Civil War monument, sadly in need of repair/restoration

Doggie Door

My parents wanted to put in a doggie door by their sliding door, so we went over so Dan could help.
This is what Andy thought of the noise!

Happy Mother's Day

My gifts from the girls

Emily's gift to me

It is filled with little notes hand written by Emi ♥

I didn't look at all the cards.
