Spent the afternoon at the Botanica Children's Garden. No shortage of fun things to do there.

Making the most of it

A water main broke down the street, and that was a perfect excuse to play in the wet, muddy mess in left at the end of the driveway. The only thing more fun was the cleanup afterwards.

Why just talk with Aunt Laura on the phone when we can video chat? Gotta love this 21st-century technology!

Sleeping on edge

Every night when I go to sleep, I snuggle up close the edge of the bed. Dad thinks I'm going to fall out.

So this is where you can find a pig snout or pig's ears?

Is that contraband?

Binkies are a thing of the past. Until an errant one rears its ugly head and causes me to want it. Again.

Carrying a tune

Even Idina Menzel (who sings songs from my favorite movie "Frozen") had to start her singing career somewhere. Thanks goodness my audience was a friendly one.

National Donut Day

A delicious national holiday like this one should be properly celebrated.

Just a little off the top

The best part about a haircut is getting to play wacky games on the iPad.

Let's get rockin'!

My feet can't reach the pedals yet, but I wasn't going to let that get between me and some rock and roll.

Seems like just yesterday when I went swimming for the first time. Now I'm holding my head (and my breath!) underwater.

A fond farewell

Went to a special reception to congratulate Aimee on her new job. She's moving, but only across town.

Batter Up

Forget being a bat girl for the Wichita Wingnuts--I'm ready to go to the Show!

Grave confusion

Went to South Dakota for the funeral of great-grandma New. I said "Dad, I think your grandma's gonna live down in that hole now!"

Playing tricks

I'd offer a piece of popcorn to grandpa DuWayne, and then quickly pull it away. He fell for it every time.
