Another creature

Garter snake. Snakes and frogs like to hang out by our trashcan, this one was underneath it! Guess they don't need much room to stretch out

Tucker's 7th birthday

Tucker wanted a similar birthday party, so we invited a few friends and did the same thing!

Carson's 10th birthday

Carson had a few friends over and we all went swimming at the Club, then went home for cake and ice cream


a couple of days ago, Tucker noticed a turtle underneath the car on our driveway! It's a box turtle, but it looks like a tortoise, with a round, high shell. I wasn't sure if it needed to be near water, so we put it near our neighbor's pond. Later, I learned this type of turtle doesn't swim, so it would've been fine anywhere. 

Refinish, finally

After many years of abuse, we are finally refinishing the table!
