Serving Tea

Some pictures

Here are picture's from a tea party, ice cream at Cold Stone, playing with chalk out back, Heidi's birthday and a monkey.





We also went on walks to see grapes and passion fruit.
More chalk time.

A short interview at our house


I asked Lars a few questions today; " Do you stink?"
"No." ( And one must add a little bit of a whinny tone to the answers.)
"Does your diaper stink?"
"No."
"Does something IN your diaper stink?"
"Yea."


That reminds me of some other people I know and the way they always answer questions!

Derek's birthday party


We celebrated Derek's birthday by making his favorite cake. I tried a new recipe and it turned out very good.



Coffee Cake!

Grapes!


We were on a quest for grapes on our walk, and we found some! most of the ones within reach were not ripe but we did get a few to bring home and we also ate a bunch. The ones we could not reach were high in an Oak tree(Willow Oak to be exact).
We also found a Pecan tree that we will be visiting throughout the summer and fall to get them when they are ripe. They were very green and I thought they smelled a little like Citronella.
The blackberry were, alas, way past their season so we missed out on the black berries!
On our way home the sky turned a very dark gray and we started to hear thunder in the distance so we hurried the rest of the way home. No sooner had we got in that it did indeed start to pour and be a grand storm. It ended up lasting all night.
We were very thankful for the rain.
We are getting a much needed shower again today, gray and wet weather.

What is it?

We went on a walk this week and found this vine. I think the flowers are really pretty. It also has this really big fruit.
It was climbing all over some black berry bushes.
If anyone knows what it is I would love to know. I wonder if the fruit is eatable?

A Little about Molly

Molly has mastered the art of Bow knot tying. Last night she was wanting me to help her tie her apron string for her but then we decided I could coach and she could tie. She was getting it really good last night but then this morning she practiced some more and mastered it!

The other thing you might notice about these pictures, she is holding her purse. She takes her purse with her everywhere. Last night she even took it to bed. And then first thing this morning she shows up with her blanket and her purse. When we went to the grocery store this week she had it along and was able to buy herself some gum.
