More Fun Pics of Summer

Here are some pictures from around our yard:

Inside our barn, where we store bicycles and the lawn tractor

This is a cool picture inside the back of the barn. It was in low light, so the shutter speed was slow. Caleb was walking when I took it, and it came out looking like his ghost! You can just see his one sneaker.

Another pic of Tigger

Aimee had asked a few questions about him. He stays in the barn, he is not allowed in the house. There was another cat that had come by a few times, but he has not been back since we got Tigger. The boys go out to play with him every morning.

Jacob getting ready to head out and mow the lawn...LOL

Yum,  that zucchini bread was good!


Aimee asked for more pics of my lilies. Here are a bunch of them:

And a close up; I was hoping to capture the blue at the tips of the petals. Really cool!

I love this one, one of our sunflowers

This is cool - one day we saw this across the street. No idea where he took off from or where he landed.

Finally, last Wednesday was Levi's birthday. I made him a Thomas cake. Ugh, it took me 3 hours to decorate, because I didn't have the right decorating tips for the brand of icing tubes I bought. I had to do it all with toothpicks. Levi was thrilled with it, so I'm glad it worked out.

Here he is opening his favorite present - money! LOL

He said, "Hooray! Now I have money! Now I can go out and buy something!" First on his list was a bag of M&Ms LOL

He really enjoyed his birthday. 4 is a nice age for birthdays, it is easy to please them LOL.

It's great to see those awesome smiling faces of your guys. Now that you have DSL I'm hoping to see more of them!

I love your barn, found myself a little jealous of it actually.

And if we ever meetup IRL again, you HAVE to share some of those lilies (and I'll share some of my neglected plants lol). They are beautiful.

Cool pix! Where did you get the kitty from? At least, if he stays in the barn, it's incentive for the boys to go outside!

Thanks for the flower pix - the blue tips came out really well. I wish I could put up some pictures of our flowers on my site - but oh yeah! we don't have any flowers. LOL

Great job on the cake!

I just love seeing pics of your yard and barn. How's the house coming? I forget ... did you have to do alot of work? I'd LOVE to see pics of the house (inside and outside)!
