Tuesday, July 20, 2010


It's Tuesday evening here at my house. The hubs is off at a business dinner so I am making pancakes and blogging (yes at the same time, and yes I know it's a disaster waiting to happen). I'm wishing it were Wednesday night and time to watch So You Think You Can Dance, which I have been really into ever since Alex's amazing Hip Hope routine about three weeks ago.

I took so many photos over the weekend!!!  I got confused about the Trendy Treehouse and thought it was "by the pool" so I took some fun photos of the kids at the pool.


the next day we went to get ice cream
I even managed to snap a pic of the hubs! :)

And we snaged an awesome pair of flip flops for Josiah for only three bucks. He was so happy with his Woody flip flops that he asked me to change the "green speckled frog" song to be "green speckled flip-flop frog" and laughed the whole way through.
five greean and speckled flip-flop frogs
sat on a speckled flip-flop log
eating some most deliciousl flies
yum yum!
one jumped into the flip-flop pool
where it was nice and flip-flop cool
now there are four green speckled flip flop frogs...

Josiah tried one of the banana peppers!

I've been working on photographing someththing for the header for my new blog layout. I want to do something like this. I don't think that this is going to be the final product but I'm very happy with the concept.

Oooh! I love the white overlay - so soft and lovely. Just beautiful! :-) I just wanted to mention, for some reason your link showed up on an older touch-up Tuesday post, I think the 4th of July one. You're welcome to post again on todays...only if you'd like! :-) Thank you so much for playing - beautiful edit. Happy Tuesday!

Oh, and also your pictures above are wonderful! I can't believe your little guy tried a banana pepper - what a face LOL! Also, the one of your daughter looking at those flowers on the table, stunning.

We had waffles for dinner the other night - it's always a hit in our house. Great photos. I like the white overlay too - very peaceful.

Great pictures...sounds like something I would and cook. At some point, I can see my husband getting annoyed. We'll see.
