She would walk as far as she could and then keep going if we didn't pick her up, not afraid at all.
Another day I took Blake to the Mudfest at the local park.He's just getting started.
He almost slid into the mud, (good, he's still clean).
And this is what you call a "clean kid"

Go to www.walgreens.com and upload a favorite photo TODAY because until 11:59 p.m. you can get a free 11x14 when you use the code FREEPOSTER. You don't have to pick it up today to get it for free, you just have to upload it and "check out" oh, and to save on shipping fees you'll want to pick it up at your most convenient Walgreen's!
I'm not done "tipping" you because each day this week Walgreen's is doing something great in their photo dept. check their site daily for the bargain of the day.
Yesterday they had 25 prints for a whopping total of 25¢! (I didn't know till later in the day or I would have told you.) All this week they have 50 prints for $5.00 and that is a really good price. The coupon code will be EASY50 each print after 50 will be 10¢ each too. (you have to make it to 50 first for the bargain price.)
It's summer time and you've been on vacations and staycations, the pool, the parks, grandmas and so on go get your fix:-)

Blake sent off things from and about Ohio to Sam including a photo album with pictures of Blake on his 4 wheeler and doing some of the things he enjoys, a packet of Gold Star Chili, postcard of Jungle Jim's and other places. Since Jennifer doesn't have a blog, I thought I'd share what Blake received on mine. Here he is with his package of goodies. What kid doesn't enjoy getting mail?

I found this pole and enjoyed poking around and drawing, I was using the net to capture crabs, just to look at them:-)
They're really fast and I kept taking shot after shot seeing how close I could get before he ran into his hole.
One of my favorite things to do is walk the beach and find beach glass, shell, and stones for "skipping", that's what I'm doing.

Today has been nice, but very crazy; let me share it with you:
We wake up to the radio playing "Keep On Loving You" by REO Speedwagon, I comment, "Oh, what a lovely song to wake up to on our anniversary".
A bit later I went in to check my email and Sam had sent me an ecard, how nice! I then responded back.
While packing his lunch, I decide to use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the center of his sandwich. I put it in a snack cup by itself, his co-worker noticed he was missing the center.
While up at the computer scanning a wedding photo I see a delivery van pull in (flowers)...oh, and they smell so heavenly; I thought...then I said to myself, I don't know what Heaven smells like so I can't compare them to Heaven. I closed up the windows to capture all the fragrance I could possible muster out of these amazing flowers. When I got home from shopping my house smelled like a florist. (good)
The Schwans guy was coming today and I had plans to meet a friend and go to a new Premium Outlet Mall. I write my note to him, put coolers filled with ice out on the porch and speak to my neighbor about grabbing my food, if she sees it delivered. I get home a minute after he pulls away, she was already on the porch, how lucky was that!? The ice cubes that got spilled on the porch were not even melted much!
The trip to the shopping center was a crazy fiasco mess, road construction, heavy shopping traffic= just not a good mixture.
Then onto the shopping center,lines were LONG, but bargains were great! Just one Yankee candle was $7.00 off a regular store price, I got 50%-60% off Carters brand clothes for the grand kids, (fall colors and style). This bib would be great for Harper, but I bought it for Jayde's birthday in October. I guess I had green on my mind. But I was thinking, Blake and Jayde would look fab in a photo shoot with their matching colors. Good luck with that idea, I know:-( Not so bad for Jayde, I don't know what will happen with Blake, he's very good in front of our camera, it's when he gets to the studio he turns to Mr. Unco-operative!
Back to the Schwans food, I take one item out of the carton to conserve freezer space and the plastic dish is cracked, therefore the cellophane is loose, I call em back and he brings me a new one, (he was still in the area).
2 days ago, I volunteer to watch Jayde for VBS Thursday night (since Sam doesn't want to miss VBS) we are going out to eat later in the week, I'm sure. My son-in-law was supposed to mow his dads yard for him tonight so I was keeping Jayde.
Jennifer calls and says Jim is not mowing after all tonight, he will watch Jayde instead. I quickly call Sam and tell him we could go out to dinner after all, *IF* he really wanted to change his mind, he said na, we'll go Saturday. He was picking up fast food for our dinner tonight.
I get to church and was not planning to say since I had originally planned to just bring Jayde back to my house and hang out, I end up staying, was bored but hung out anyway kitchen duty was light and mostly done early.

me and Jayde watching Blake make his project.
Another view of it.
Look how excited the children are, they're doing the hand motions and singing.
