Julia said it's like the Princess and the Pea...and she's the pea!

Then Adam crawled on top, and I'm not sure who it the princess now...

These are straight out of the camera, completely unedited quick snapshots. 
Ignore the lack of trim and the junk on the table.  Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

blossom bonanza

Took advantage of a day or two of sunshine last week to take these!

Aaah!  Mmmmnnn!  Maybe Spring IS here?  Maybe?  Between rainstorms?

Guilty or innocent?

There is a whole wack load of this plant along the property line and the garden.  I remembered the old adage, "Leaflets three, let it be," and I'm wondering whether it's poison ivy or something fairly innocuous.  I looked it up, and it looks kind of like it might be the dreaded plant, but it doesn't look quite the same.

Anybody know for sure?  I used Round Up on some of it, then felt badly in case it might be something nice. 

Which I doubt.

Please advise.  I'd like to get rid of it now, if it's a nasty.  If it's pretty innocent, I'll keep it there for the green.

Soccer Sweeties

Adam...ah yes, I'm gonna have troubles with this one!  HA!

First soccer game today, photos prior.  Here he is with some of his team mates.

Lapping it up with his sister and an older woman.  teehee

We were at the field for HOURS today.  And it got FREEZING cold.  Adam and I wrapped up in my big hoodie and cocooned while Julia played.


I keep telling myself it will be the end of June soon.  And I also tell myself that when Hubs gets back HE'S going to spend hours and hours freezing at the field the first season back while I hang out nice and warm at home with a hot cocoa and a novel.  So be it.

From way back when

For the benefit of the hubster, here are photos that I forgot to post from...oh...a couple of months ago.

Science Fair, 20111.

OK.  Now back to our regular scheduled programming.
