Just being neighborly

My friend, Avelyn, lives on the corner of my block. It's so great when she comes over to play!

You can lead a Helen to water

Josh and Casey promised me there was a swimming pool at the end of our leisurely walk through the neighborhood.

The Great Harvest

It's become an annual tradition: Grandpa cuts the wheat, and I get to ride on the combine with him.

Standing guard

As the head cat-letter-inner-and-outer around here, my job has gotten tougher since only Zelde can go outside now.

Dr. Helen on call

Spatz had knee surgery last week. Thank goodness my doctor's kit was handy so I could check his vitals.

I'm sure that whoever invented these safety nets on trampolines had me in mind when they came up with the idea.

Reeling in a big one

Chief Atteberry from the Bel Aire Police Department was kind enough to help me catch my very first fish today during the Wichita Eagle's Kids Fishing Clinic.

Donuts with Dad - Part 4

Even though it's an annual tradition, this year I wasn't hungry for the donut.

Practice makes perfect

I've recently added flossing to the hygiene repertoire.

Next best thing

Grammie came to town to see Aunt Jaime's new baby boy. That baby boy decided to wait a few more days to be born, but she did get to see me, at least.

Roughing it

I set up camp in the house, complete will all of my dress-up dresses.

Open up and say Ahhhhhhh

A post-brushing examination finds that my teeth are still in perfect working order.

Mission: Accomplished

I had to clean my room today. Other than the bed, I'd say I did some pretty nice work.

Hugs at the Old Mill

Lunch at the Old Mill Tasty Shop today. This usually ends with ice cream.

If the shoe fits...

Once I'd selected my new pumped-up kicks, it was time to help everyone else pick out a new pair.

Paging Mr. Sandman

It's hard to sleep when thunder and lightning are happening outside.

Oooo, can't you smell that smell?

Sheree picked onions from her dad's garden and brought them over for me to see. I saw them and I smelled them, but I didn't taste them.
(June 10, 2015)

Just add water

When it comes to watering the garden or the flowers, I've got everything under control. Just need to make sure I pay attention to where I'm watering.
(June 9, 2015)

(Still) beating the heat

The water park hasn't changed, but I sure have. Sadly, I'm still not the required 48 inches tall that I need to be to go down the water slide.

Best doggone dog in the west

Norton is a pretty old dog. He can't hear anymore and he doesn't get around so well, but I sure do like him.

Super Saturday

First on the day's agenda was the KPTS Kids Club visit to the Great Plains Transportation Museum. Oh, how I love trains! Next was Sydney's birthday at Urban Air. Oh, how I love jumping around!

Color coordination

My dessert matches my outfit. I meant to do that.

Back to Costco

Tuesday's sneak peek, due to the crowds, was all looking and no buying, so it was important for me to make a return trip to get the stuff I'd scoped out.
(June 4, 2015)

Good morning, sunshine!

Ready to start the day with a smile on my face.
(June 3, 2015)

The wait is over

I got a sneak peak at Wichita's new Costco store before it officially opened. These oversized stuffed bears were so big and so soft and so wonderful. Only $190 a bear!

Sleep study

Someone almost forgot to get the daily blog picture again.

Fountain of youth

Summer is setting in. I'm going to try and conquer all the swimming holes and lawn sprinklers that I can.

Second verse, same as the first

Sometimes you feel like a nap. Sometimes you don't. Tired kids-who-stayed-up-way-to-late-because-they-were-at-the-Riverfest-parade-the-night-before-checking-out-Wayne-White's-puppets should take naps. Helen won't.
(May 30, 2015)

Everyone loves a parade

The best part of Riverfest's Sundown Parade was seeing Wayne White and his puppets. They were so amazing! And so big!
