Dog park!

For the first time in a long time, Carol and I met at Grandview Dog Park for a puppy playdate today.
Darcy was so happy to be out and about.  She ran...
and ran... 
and ran! 
She ran with dogs she didn't know...
and she ran with dogs she did know.
In fact, she singlehandedly...
a dog park... 
flash mob! 
Maggie doesn't run as much as Darcy, but she does pretty well for such an old lady.
Tired happy Darcy.
Tired happy Maggie.

Uninvited guest

This little birdie visited me while I was doing dishes yesterday.  He looked kind of cute sitting in my cupboard, but I hope he doesn't come back.

Our house

I realize that our house would probably be considered a fixer upper by most standards, but I'm not sure I like Ryan's depiction of it.  Oh well, at least the swamp cooler and garage door merit a happy face!

Masked marauders

Ryan made this mask in his fifth grade art class.  Every now and then he likes to get it out and check to see if it still fits. 
Why does Darcy look so worried?
That's why!

Green eggs and ham

A couple weeks ago I was trying to think of something to serve with ham.  Seth suggested green eggs.  I thought he was kidding, but it turned out that he really did want green eggs.

So, I made him green eggs!
The kids were apprehensive at first, but it wasn't long before James was chanting: I would eat them in a boat.  And I would eat them with a goat.  And I will eat them in the rain.  And in the dark.  And on a train.  And in a car.  And in a tree.  They are so good, so good you see!  So I will eat them in a box.  And I will eat them with a fox.  And I will eat them in a house.  And I will eat them with a mouse.  And I will eat them here and there.  Say!  I will eat them ANYWHERE!  I do so like green eggs and ham.  Thank you!  Thank you!  Mom I am!

The cone of shame

Poor Darcy.  
It's hard living inside the cone of shame.
