We have Mushrooms!

This morning when I was changing Madeline in her room, I happened to look out the window and saw mushrooms in the yard. I know that having shrooms in the yard is nothing new, but this one looked huge! So, I had to go out and take some pictures of them. Yes, I know I am strange, and yes I know it's weird to take pictures of yard mushrooms, and yes, I know this is a strange post. All I can say is that once you become a stay-at-home, you get impressed by the smallest things. So, just pretend this is really cool with me... OK???

This is the biggest one. I put my flip flop in front of it for comparison.

Here is a picture of the sun coming up in our back yard. It's hard to tell in the pic because it turned out dark for some reason, but it really is pretty in real life.

Our Back Yard Camping "Adventure" (or lack thereof)

Last weekend, we decided to take Emma camping. Not "real" camping mind you, but camping in Mom and Dad's back yard. For the most part, I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves, but I will tell you that Emma only made it to 11pm in the tent. It was a little chilly that night, and the road noise was a little scary for her, so she decided to sleep inside instead. Ike was out there with her, but I guess that just wasn't enough. So, for your viewing pleasure, here are some pics.

Wordless Wednesday for October 7th

The pictures of Emma were taken at her GVA field trip to the Birdsong Nature Center in Thomasville.

While I realize that this last picture is terrible, I posted it because this is only picture that you can see Madeline's milestone for last week. Can you see it? Ok, stop squinting and just click on the picture, and you should be able to see Madeline's first tooth! (It's the white speck on her bottom gum) This tooth came is last week, and I was just able to get a pic of it this weekend.
