Back seat driving

Oh, Melissa, thank you for my first award. You are so kind to think of little ol' me.

It's raining here so we spent some time at the play area in the mall. I never grow tired of watching kids play with other kids they don't know. They so very quickly introduce themselves, make up games and abide by the rules that each other make up as they go. Sweet Pea and a girl her age along with the girl's younger sister all held hands forming a circle and then danced around a puppet that was in the play area. They started to giggle so hard that their mother and I had to start laughing too.

Before it rained the kids went blueberry picking. They each made a kid sized pie and have been eating on it. Where are the pictures of that? Well, I was so busy keeping the flour dust to a minimum and making sure each kid got the same amount of berries that taking photos was not on my mind. I'm sorry I missed it, too.

I read so many wonderful blogs where mothers do projects with their kids and take photos throughout the process -- I have a lot to learn.

Tomorrow, if it doesn't rain, we'll go to a zoo.

I'm glad you're having fun with the grandkids. They are darling! Blueberry pie? YUM! I wish blueberries grew around here. I love them. I hope you get to go to the zoo today!

Rita, but sometimes I wonder if the mom's in the blogs you spoke about spend so much time staging the photos that they don't enjoy the activity. Sometimes I miss the picture because I don't want to miss the fun.
I hope you are able to have a fun day at the zoo. David always loved going to the National Zoo because there was always construction going on. He would spend his time watching the trucks and then fly by the animals in the cages. Oh well, he still had a great time.

You are most welcome and deserving.

You are oh so creative.

Have a great weekend.
