This is the steel and rock sculpture we bought
at the Broad Ripple Art Fair.

It is about 4 feet high.

Eventually we will put it on our garden, but right
now it is in our laundry room.

BTW: Mom does not like the color I painted
the laundry room.

I like it (the picture does not do it justice).

I call it the “mud room”.

Just like her Mommy…

Little Lady watched Harry Potter for the first time
and she fell in love with the movie!  (just like Mom)

Since Sunday, she has seen it almost three times!

May 16 Broad Ripple Art Fair

Monday, May 17th, 2010


This is always one of the kids favorite stops at the Broad Ripple Art Fair.


The glass makers conducted a demonstration.  Sissy liked this, but she
was glad to get out of the hot, hot room!

Mom and I bought a new outdoor sculpture.  We’ll post a picture soon!

May 15 Belated Birthday Party for Little Man!

Monday, May 17th, 2010


Little Man wanted a sports themed birthday party.  It rained early, so
we had to eat the cake first.  (no one seemed to mind)


Marsh did this cake, buttercream frosting and all.  They did a great job!
It was yummy!

(the cake was a touchdown!)


Once the rain cleared, the games  began!

I setup a fence at the bottom of the driveway.  It kept the ball from
going into the street.

In addition to basketball, the kids played soccer, football,
baseball and of course, bubbles.


Even though it sprinkled on and off, the kids were good sports and had
a great time.

p.s. Dad had to fish a soccer ball out of the pond

One of favorite days of the year.  I drop off the laptops at the track.
I got to hang out and watch the cars on the track. 

(Several drivers were running practice laps)

Little Lady is a swinging princess!

(she gets really high!  I remember when she learned how to swing
on her own)

I just don’t get it….

If you want a motorcycle…  get a motorcycle.

If you want a trunk… get a car.

This, to me, is the worse of both.

The price… it starts at $22,000!

I just don’t get it…

Little Man has been reading Boxcar Children books.

Notice the leg crossing.  Both me and Aunt J cross our legs like that
in our sleep.  I am not sure about Uncle D…  We think it is a genetic trait.

May 9 – Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 9th, 2010


We took Mom out to lunch for Mother’s Day, then
shopping at the mall.

Little Lady found a new pair of shades and two new
sandals.  (in the bag)

She is a natural shopper.

NOTE: She never asked for a lot of toys growing up.
It looks like she was just wanting us to save up for clothes…
