Camera Roll

I love where I live.

Thousands of pink blossoms arrive at my doorstep every Spring.

And then, like overnight, they are gone.

Bleu's bubble bath beard.

Strawberry oat muffins for breakfast.

Oh yeah! Skipping rocks.

Smoothies 101 with Ollie. 

Teepee building after a three-mile hike with Cub Scouts.

Nothing better.

Five years ago these were on Buby's feet:)


Definitely NOT afraid of heights.

Our buddy down at the river. 

Homemade whipping cream.

Driveway art via rubber tires.

Bleu is super into jewelry lately.

Buby celebrates his First Holy Communion.

I may have cried.

Sunday Love

My crew killing it at the driving range.

Buby drives the ball through the center hole in that little black net.
The manager says he's never seen anyone do that before and gives Buby a dollar.

Bleu curves her toes in strangely, but it works for her.

Mr. Oliver handles a club better than I do. WAY better.

Farmer's market for overpriced pesto and a fresh baguette.

The annual (rubber) Duck Derby for charity. 

Homemade ice cream.

This pesto is ridiculous, but it's the best we've had.
