She was eating a pineapple smoothie and rejected the last few bits. Then she inhaled a bowl full of ocra. Last week she opted for ocra instead of a banana.

She had her first exam. She screamed as needed. He gave her a toy as a prize. I gave her a bottle. She enjoyed exploring the waiting room best. Now to get her to smile for the camera!

At first i couldn't figure out what she was staring at and pointing to and then clapping about. I finally realized she could see the dust particles in the air.

Go girl

Check out my baby! We went to Jordan Park for a ward BBQ and all the kids played on the equipment. Joyce,  of course joined them and next thing i knew she figured out how to climb the slide! She made it to the top and then slid down on her belly. She was not happy when it was time to eat. Then she would not eat well, all the while looking back at the slide. When we left for home she cried. That could also have been because she was so tired.

Gilgal gardens

This is the prefect spot to take the kids. Small, quiet, empty, shady, safe,  interesting, beautiful.


you know when it's too quiet and you start to worry. Well this is what I found. Love that girl.

Took kids to the park today. We had a picnic. Short but soooooo nice. Great weather and for a last minute activity it was surprisingly easy to do. Easier than the time I set up a wading pool in the back yard. That was a nightmare. Ward got bit by ants, though and Joyce wanted to chase all the dogs. Neither would stay on the blanket. 

DIY grout cleaner

Pour soy milk on it and let it sit for six hours. Then just wipe up with water. Who knew?!
Sorry, I lost the photo that proves it, but you have to believe me.
