What we've been up to lately...

Life has been busy lately, but fun. Must be summer!

It's Football season in this household. (Don't worry, mark doesn't always look this angry. His new helmet squishes up his forehead!)
Zeke playing with the Band at camp. (he was pretty certain that he was the star of this show!)
Reuben's Snail, "speedy".
A coffee can full of salamanders that the boys caught at the pond. I'm a mean mommy and wouldn't let them take any home.
Some of the froggies the boys caught. They and their friends had a "marriage" ceremony for most of them in pairs, and then again, mean mommy made them put them back.
This is Sam. He was married to Ella. Ha, get it? Sam n' Ella? Witty Children.
Zeke, with Ella.
Reuben and Speedy
Summer grubs. These four spent the whole week either in the trees or at the pond.
I need
to talk to Reuben
about being GENTLE!!!!!
Zeke and Charlie. Not our dog, but his friends. He wants one now. Not going to happen anytime soon.
These two are inseparable
And very busy with their frog catching "business". (only costs a quarter!)

What could be more fun than a MASSIVE tarp covered in water and baby oil? Zeke's tummy was pretty raw from the slip and slide and he was mad that I made him go on his bum after a while instead. He said "the scratchies are worth it".
