Busy autumn weekend after busy weekend. This past weekend there was flag practice, 2 baseball games and a flag game. In addition to that there was scarecrow building at the town common. #3 and I "helped" - basically I chatted and took pictures. Man I feel useless.

These are some of the coolest scarecrows.

Sunning at Swimming Lessons

Today was the 3rd to last swimming lesson for the year. The kids all enjoyed themselves, as always. It was a lovely morning in the 70s with a constant breeze. I was joined at the picnic table I was sitting at by this attractive (I'm sure some other bug finds it so) dragonfly-esk creature. I would say it was about the length of my pinkie finger.

I just adore the vivid colors of dragonflies (and things that seem like them). :)

Sunny Sunday

Talk about a BEAUTIFUL day!!!! High 70s to low 80s, nice breeze, sunny and not muggy! A delicious day! #3, 4 and I went to my BFF Burke's children's' party. Her daughter is 4 now and her son will be 10. They just grow too quick! We took our annual picture together, both of us thinner than we were last year so it's REALLY good! :) I think we both look pretty darn good for 37. Well, she's still 36 but only for a couple more months.

We had to leave the party so I could go to the last regular game for #2 and DH as coach. They won which means they will be playing next week in the playoff to championship.

I love this picture because #3 sat himself on his cooler in DH's shadow in order to get just a tiny bit cooler while he was off the court.

Beauty of Summer

This beautiful scene is the dam at the lake where the kids take swimming lessons. It is now the desktop on DH's laptop and mine.

Swimming through Summer

Yesterday was one of those perfect days to have to sit on the beach while the kids had swimming lessons. Warm but not too hot, a nice breeze and sunny. YUM! I brought the camera and took way too many pictures, as I always do. This one of #4 was my favorite.

Out of play for far too long

So I finally have dragged my behind BACK to my blog and am actually updating!!

#2's team that DH coaches got a through pounding yesterday. But the day was a beauty and it made for GREAT pictures.

Loved the action in this one.

I LOVED the way they are all waiting for the ball to fall.

Rainy Day 12

Today I just had to go with 2 pictures. It's another rainy day so I played with the settings and I was able to get these 2 common things with these amazing raindrops!

I loved the ripples in the trashcan lid!

And here - the rain drops actually dripping off of the stupid metal awning outside my basement door!
