A lovely evening...

Daddy showed us how the bees extract pollen from flowers. It was pretty cool to see the pollen shoot out of the flower when he pricked it.

We decided that it was a perfect evening to grill steak. Fish loves steak, and always asks to have some for dinner.

We also went for a "little adventure" to check on the grass situation. Chris is trying to document how our grass is changing since we began to pasture yearlings. It is interesting to see how much new life there is after the yearlings graze a pasture. It is amazing what sun and a little rain can do too!!!

Yes I did take a picture of a cow pie :) Can you see the new sprigs of grass shooting up inside of it?

I added a vintage feel to this photo with photoshop. I also colored Chris's blue jeans and the mtn. I then added little stars all over the mtn with my brush tool. I really like how it turned out. It almost seems like my boys are walking towards the stars on the mtn. :)

New Baby Car Seat

We will be putting the infant car seat into the car and tahoe this next have you all done it with 2 kids. Do you still put the infant in the middle? We have middle with both cars, so it could work, but I have heard that it makes for the first child to "bug" the little one and who knows what they will put in their mouths, etc....any suggestions, or what you have all done?

Free Samples...

I signed up for a free sample with Huggies a few weeks ago and got the samples this weekend. The samples are great, but they also had 2 $3 off coupons in the packages for "any" huggies packages, not just the pure and natural. It is better than the typical $1.50 off coupons I regularly get.

I think many moons ago I posted a link about the vaccine debate. Well here's another that points out the dangers of not vaccinating. Just thought I ought to be well rounded. Not that it really matters to me as my kids are vaccinated but I think its interesting.

I was wondering what you parents do with your kids during the evening. After dinner before bedtime? What activities do you do, do you just let them do their own thing or do you plan things? My daughter will be 2 this month. Thanks!!

Possible new business venture for me......

Was wondering if any of you stay at home mommies could give me some advice on this stay at home venture........I know that there are ribbon pants out there but McKenzie and I keep getting compliments and questions about where we got them. So I thought I would make them to order. What do you think? Our town is a relatively small town but it is amazing how many people want these for their girls. So any advice on starting a small at home business doing this would be great. I just love doing it and it wouldn't be a chore for me to do it. I make them during their naptimes, etc. I know you have started a photography business, Dana. Do you have any really good advice on getting started? Thank you!
