Texas Bluebonnets

There's nothing in the world quite like a field of Texas Bluebonnets...nothing!

Thanks for the pictures Mom!

Meet Larry

I don't know why he's named Larry - you'd have to ask Ivan that question. But I know what Larry is...or hopes to be. Larry dreams of becoming this...

...a giant cabbage - without the girl attached of course.

Bonnie Plants, a company in Alabama, has a contest for 3rd graders. Read all about it here!
Ivan brought home a plant last week in a tiny cup and we transplanted it today. Soon we'll find a place in the yard for Larry to really take off! His dream is to gain up to 40 pounds! Amazing!

Even if Ivan doesn't win the $1000 scholarship (you should have seen his face when I told him what a scholarship was...I think he had images of Legos to the ceiling!), we figure we could enter it in the Central Washington State Fair this fall.

So, I'll keep you posted on Larry's progress. I'm hoping the fact that he's already sporting a yellow leaf isn't indicative of his future!

Grow Larry! Grow!

Would you believe me...

...if I told you these pictures were taken on the same day!?

We woke to a snow sky yesterday that dumped for a good 2 hours.
Slowly, but surely, the sun came back out and erased all traces!

I've been looking at old pictures of my kids when they were little...

Seeing those adorable little faces makes me it too late to try for just one more?



...and Happy Birthday Grandpa!
