Shade Tree

It was surprisingly hot today, so when we went out for the afternoon, I was quite glad for the shade of this tree

our wall

This was apparantly the only picture taken today. I'm guessing it was J's handiwork.

More house

Isn't it so fun to get pictures from J's perspective? Now if only I could figure out a way to take pictures of stuff without J taking over the camera...

Smiling boy

aparantly not many pictures got taken today. this one was the best of the bunch.

I think this was a picture of our feet. J took control of the camera when I pulled it out for something else...

From J's perspective

J has figured out how to take pictures with my camera. This is probably the best one one of his (basically the only one that he wasn't covering up the lense with his finger.

More swinging pictures

all the pictures taken today were blurry. I think there is a fingerprint on the lense.

J enjoyed taking some pictures together this morning

why yes, that IS a D cell battery he's sticking in his mouth. in fact, he did it for almost half an hour before I took it away (and made him terribly unhappy in the process)

Late night adventures

So we used to have a smoke detector in our kitchen. Unfortunately, it also used to be right above the stove and microwave, so whenever something was steaming, or even if we cooked something in the microwave, it would go off. So we took it out, and the problem was solved. Apparently it was still keeping track of the battery life however, because at about 10:30 tonight, it started to beep. the only problem is that it was back in J's room, hidden behind a very heavy tool box (we still have no idea how it got there). so we got to go digging through everything to try and find it. it took us a a good half hour or more to find it. and both Drew and I were very surprised that J stayed asleep through it all. especially since we had some rather...close calls... with noisy items that were moved.

Garden Setting

In an effort to find an organ to practice on, I had to tromp all over campus, including spending some time meandering through the gardens. I found this setting, and decided I wouldn't mind having something like this in my own yard one day...if I had a big enough yard I suppose.

busy day

Blanket fort

Splash park
We had a busy day between pulling all the toys out of the toy box, building a blanket fort (just to have it be pulled down moments later) several times, a work barbecue and playing at the splash park afterword.  all in all, a fun day, if busy and action packed.

Drip bucket

We've been having a lot of rain recently, and since we have a leak in our roof still, this gets to hang out blocking most of our hallway for the last two or three days. I am excited for the sun to come back out and dry things up and  we can have our hallway back.

we've had these for a couple days now, and have been thoroughly enjoying having them. they let in so much light! not quite enough to have the lights off (they still usually need to be on to see enough to get stuff done) but it is a LOT lighter in our apartment. I LOVE having these!!

Cute sleepers

It was a long day for both of these guys, and they fell asleep together at bedtime

asking for pictures

J brought me the camera this morning, as if asking for pictures, so I obliged :)

Raw potatoes

We got some free potatoes on our way home from our walk today, and I set them on our table so I could run to the bathroom before putting them away. I should have guessed that J, who usually will have a snack on a walk, but didn't today, would be hungry. I came out of the bathroom to find, of course, that J was trying (and succeeding a lot more than I would have guessed) to eat the potatoes raw.
