Random Photos

Doesn't that title just draw you in!  Here are a bunch of pictures off my camera that aren't quite a full blog post.. but yet that I couldn't leave off! 

This was from May when I hadn't turned the AC on yet.. it was HOT and this is how I found Sammy when he got up from his nap!

On a nature hike.  Sammy wanted to collect every stick he found on the trail:


Checking out the pond form the shade:


Sammy loves this hat.. and I have to admit its pretty stinkin' cute:


Fire chief Sammy:


He went back inside to find his fireman hat!  Yes he thinks you should wear it backward like that!


My Lilies before the sun burned them to a crisp :-P

How do you get 5 children to sit still?  Pink Panther:


My company picnic, Sammy was a huge fan of the pool and the cotton candy:


His first one ever!  He also got into the bounce house for a little while.  this is a huge step for him!!


We played a crazy close game of Catan with some friends.  The board was so full Tim had to take a picture of it.  The winner was in our family and didn't take the picture ;-)

Lawn Party

At the beginning of the month we went to our local lawn party.  Most of you are probably scratching your head about what a lawn party even is!  Basically its a fair put on by the local volunteer fire department.  Any donations or money they earn goes to them.  This is basically their big money maker each year.  It allows them to upgrade equipment, repair equipment, put gas into the trucks, etc.

Our neighbor is a volunteer so we always try and make it out and enjoy  the festivities!  Sammy loved checking out the tractors people brought:

Next up was the parade… Sammy hamming it up with Daddy:


We had to wait for the parade to start and every car that drove by same would say something about.  I am pretty sure he thought the whole thing was a parade ;-)


Our local volunteer fire department truck.. its green and Sammy thought that was great!


An old fire truck:

Daddy and Sammy before going on the carousel ride:

Caught one of him waving!!


Meanwhile Tim's little sister Nicia was having a sleepover at our house.  So they came for the parade and one ride.  Here are her friends and her on the scrambler.  (L to R: Anna, Olivia, Nicia (Tim's sister))


Here they are going at top speeds.  They were cracking up so hard.  Anna is fixing her glasses, she promised me I would write that. 


At the end of the ride.. they were getting a little sick of it or maybe it was all the candy they ate ;-)


Next up some dinner.. I couldn't get Sammy to look at the camera but he liked waving to the little old lady sitting across the table:

PBS – Book Fair

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of going to our local PBS book fair for kids.  They had a lot of great activities for kids of different ages.  They also gave away a free book!  We got Clifford goes to the Circus.

Daddy and Sammy, I couldn't get a good picture since Sammy was to busy staring at the fire truck ;-)


Sammy got a fireman hat from of the firefighters and got to pose with the truck.  They were allowed to sit in the driver seat but Sammy did not want to do that ;-)


Sammy and I made a butterfly on coffee filters:


Daddy and Sammy listened to some music:


Sammy also got his "face painted" which was his leg since he didn't want his actual face painted :-P


We also got to talk to some police officers, make a sand art picture, play a put put game, and watch people pretend to be weather forecasters.

Memorial Day Weekend

I realized that I never posted our pictures from Memorial Day Weekend.  We got to spend the day at the lake with Tim's sister Nicia, my parents and my sister and her family!  The water was surprisingly warm!!

A little noodle war:


Sammy thinks its hilarious when you shoot water out of the end of the noodle!


Taking a get warm break!  Sammy's towels is one of my latest sewing project :-)


My take of Sammy's picture


I love the colors of the kayaks and had a lot of fun taking pictures with them!


Some of my Mom's flowers down by the water:


My sister posted about our time at the lake.  I stole some of her great pictures :-)!  Here we are all getting ready to tube!  Yes the boys are on the tube!


How could I not put a picture of sweet Ellie in here:


Bradley and Chris getting ready to tube!  Clare always gets these great shots of the boys together.  Splashing with their noodles!
