Wow, well, you know it's getting pretty bad when I have to use a date as a title for my post again. Not too much to report. My mother and her husband visited us from PA yesterday and part of today. Together, we watched the kids swim in the pool, played with the kids, went for dinner at Applebees and then for ice cream at a little place up the street called "Scoops". We looked around my yard at plants and I learned how to take better care of some of them (Sorry, Mom, I still have no love in my heart for azaleas), and started making plans for more of them. Today, they watched the kids while I went grocery shopping. Woo-hoo!
This afternoon while the twins slept, Delaney and I planted some "Mammoth" sunflower seeds. Hopefully we are not too late in the season to get some big flowers on them. I'll post some photos if they grow. These are BIG sunflowers. Great for birds and they make nice snacks for us as well.
We've now been able to add a Carolina Wren to our list of visitors at the seed feeder. We're still attracting 4-5 hummers a day at the hummingbird feeder...maybe more...that is just what I get a chance to see. I'm seriously thinking about getting a window feeder for winter. This is what I'd like to get but finances are tight so unless Santa buys it for us, we're going to end up with a small feeder that suctions to the window instead.
Here are a few photos from the past week...making s'mores in the backyard (over the flame in the gas grill!), playing with our new Thomas Train set, William swimming, and Delaney and Tinna dancing during Delaney's last day of Kindermusik camp.
