Tennessee Aquarium Pictures (2006)

Category: Vacation Time! | Posted: Mon Feb 25, 2008 9:15 pm

I love family vacation time! I had the priviledge of getting to take some pics at the Tennessee Aquarium on our trip in '06 and thought they were too pretty to keep to myself! Enjoy!


Anyone know the name of this beautiful tropical flower?


Matt and our daughter Hannah checking out the stingrays!


More stingrays and eels...


Cute lil turtle mid-stride =P


Going out-on-a-limb just to chill =D

Never Trust A 2 Year Old

Category: My First Year Gardening | Posted: Tue Feb 19, 2008 10:39 pm

So I'm sitting here looking over my seed options for this year and am so excited to be planning my first veggie/fruit/berry garden this year! (With help from my non-blonde hubby of course..cant have 2 blondes on one project can we?...) So, I'm incredibly happy to be a stay at home Mom, and thrilled even more that today went smoothly (minus the broken bowl with spilled applesauce and cottage cheese that my 2 year old daughter Hailey loves to eat) so far! I'm so proud of myself for actually reading and studying a topic like gardening instead of diving right in and learning later as I am known to do! Ouch..yeah..that doesnt always work.. ANyway... So my Java Finches are in the back ground mating and chirping and all is good with the world..or so I thought! I start smelling this 'baby scent' and look down..sniffing...wondering where this lovely scent came from.. Aargh!!! My daughter decided..hmm. Guess I'll 'borrow' some lotion today, that sure sounds nice. So, she *quietly* tip toes in here (the office) with her sister's pencil box, and fills it PLUMB FULL of baby lotion! I notice she didnt forget to put a blob of it in her blonde curls or the dab on her lip. She didnt forget to drown her hands in it and make cute lil handprints on the carpet. And of course she didnt forget to look at me with those big baby blues and smile!! Of all things! Like she's irresistable or something! (thinking she learned that from her big sis too) So..now I have scented, painted, and slimy carpet and no one to clean it up except for...ME! Guess thats what Mom's are for =) Sometimes I suppose I dont mind since I got a dose of laughter for the day, but wow they sure do keep you busy!

So, back last fall when we were thinking, hmm, a garden sure sounds nice... I didnt know that discussion would lead to all this mess.. but it's kinda funny and cute anyway ;) =P =D
