Baseball practice!

Little Lady got her new baseball cap and a her new mit.
(she did not want a pink glove)

She is on the San Francisco Giants.

In honor of the San Francisco Giants, Little Lady is sporting
a Tim Linsecum haircut.


She is getting used to a real bat.  We have been playing
wiffle ball so long, it took a little adjustment.

I tried our “new” grill.

Actually, we got this grill for a WEDDING gift 11 years ago.  We finally
got it out and tried it.  The hot dogs were yummy.


High in the sky she swings like a bird!

Soon it rained, then it POURED!  One of our small tulip popular trees
lost two limbs.  🙁

but then…


A rainbow appeared.  Actually, it was a double rainbow,
lighter, to the right of the main one.

It was cool because you could see the entire arc of the

Close up of Little Lady eating gold fish…


I made this drawing today. 
(several older boys came by and admired it)

I think that we are over an ancient Indian burial ground,
any art I draw on our driveway summons ancient spirits
who summon rain upon our lands…..

Safe to say, this drawing only lasted two hours before
it was washed away….

A typical day in our busy life…

We ate out and then Little Lady had a birthday party at 3pm and ANOTHER
birthday party at 4:30pm.

We then went to the Strawberry Festival at 6:30pm.

Too much fun…


This was at the Strawberry Festival.  (Little Lady would make a great driver)

She is her Mom’s daughter….

I came home and Little Lady would not acknowledge me until she
finished her book.  (just like Mom would do)

Also, Little Lady had her first baseball practice tonight.  She was
a little nervous, but she did well.

We need to practice catching with a mitt and hitting with a
aluminum bat, but overall, she did very well.

Forgive the quality of the shot, but I was trying to be sneaky….

 Today, the soundtrack to the next Twilight movie was released.

We were at Target buying it for Mom.  The woman in front of me
had quite an evening planned.

She had the Eclipse soundtrack, the new novella by the Twilight
author (also about vampires), a bottle of blush wine and a pint
of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

 This was just a snapshot of this woman’s perfect evening…

“The sun will come out… tomorrow, bet your
bottom dollar that tomorrow, there’ll be sun…”

Mom introduced Little Lady to “Annie”, she

I think she has already watched it at least 6
times in the past few days.
