Shadows through the mimosa tree during the eclipse, love the crescent moon shapes.
The colander was a nice little helmet. Paul just didn't
understand about the eclipse and thought we were playing outside. It was also pretty cool to look through.
You can't tell that the sun is probably 80% covered at this point, but there is a little crescent that reflected in the bottom of the photograph. We also viewed the eclipse through my husband's welding helmet.
My sister gave me this for my birthday and I finally got around to painting all the states we've been to so far, after it dried, I added the year we went to each state for the first time, since we've been married. We need to go to Alaska, Hawaii, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi.
Mowing the grass at Grandpa's today was really fun, Rob started off with Paul on his lap, and Olivia and Hannah also took turns helping.
After, we went to the state park and enjoyed the lake; Rob on his sailboat, the beach, pretty hollyhocks growing by the shore, sand and sun...
Someone got all wet.
He found a melting chocolate bar in the van. He asks for "coco," often.
Chocolate face again. This time due to a banana chocolate chip muffin. And I turned 40 over the weekend. We spend 8 hours at the final swim meet of the summer, both of the girls did a great job in their races...sadly, I forgot the memory card, although I had the camera, so I couldn't take any photos.
Grammie came with us to pick Hannah up from camp. Paul wanted to drive her car.
We got some kombucha from Fab Ferments. This is beet and ginger. Isn't it a pretty color? It has been hot...almost one month into summer. Kombucha is finally something I'm liking, it's taken a while...and now I think it's refreshing in this heat.
We went to the pool with my sister and her family.
