Let’s lighten it up around here. Here are a few sweet snapshots from these last few weeks of fun in the sun.
Before we begin, let me introduce you to our entertainment center. It actually came with our house, and although I haven’t minded it much, Ben has hated it from site on. When we put the house on the market, I dutifully stripped it of all personal nick knacks and photos, but our Realtor said it had to go. No, “WOW” factor. Guess what? Just like everything else we own these days, no one wants it. I think it’s funny. Somehow, when this guy sells, I’ll have some hope again about the whole house thing.
There are some beautiful gardens in this town. Every August one hosts a butterfly tour. You tour the outside gardens hunting down little stations with information on butterflies. Each station has a stamp you collect. Then in the conservatory, there is a butterfly hatchery and swarms and swarms of butterflies around. It’s really fun. If you collect all the stamps outside, you get a free ice cream cone.
T4 always looks just like this after eating one. It never fails. Isn’t it adorable?
Before our quick turn around, I did manage to snap one quick picture of L2 and her cousin in Tennessee. Aren’t they two peas in a pod? There’s her mom Erin in the background admiring the cuties.
Here we are just a few days ago at Pope Farms. It’s a working farm, but also a park so the public can come out and visit. I know what you are thinking. Who wears a dress to a farm? Well, we were on our way back from church, but had to stop when we realized the sunflowers were blooming.
Also, why does Jess have that stupid grin on her face. It’s called, “I can’t see! The sun is blinding me!!”
Does anyone know how much teeth whitening would cost? And does it hurt? I have very sensitive teeth.
And I leave you with the latest installment of “Pictures of Mommy taken by Monkeys.”
I really am too old for this shirt, don’t you think?
Have a great day! Love, Jess
