I don't have the grass border in yet, but you can begin to see the shape. It is really growing well.

Flying Black Olives

I. Love. Bumblebees. They kind of scare me, but I am fascinated by them. I just think they're so cool to look at and they're so big and fuzzy. I think the bee in this video is a carpenter bee. Yes, that's Tucker screaming in the background - he's scared of them too. No, just kidding, if I had the door open, he'll just crawl into the street, so I had to shut the door while I shot this video. Does anyone else think bumblebees are this cool?

This is for you, Andrea!

I dusted off the old kiddie pool and put it on our front lawn and let the kids swim around. Shoulda done it earlier! (Everything got so serious when I gave them the otter pops.)
