At the speed of life

I have way too much in the backlog for posting. I think if I were to attempt to post it all, I would end up completely frustrated. So I won't!


What you get here, today, is a fruit salad type post - lots of very different good things all mixed together for one mighty nice bowl full!

First we have the beautiful clear blue skies that have accompanied our lovely pleasant weather this last week. This would be my view from my lawn chair while the children played.

Next we have Nicole pushing Michael in the little car - one of the kids' favorite things to do of late. When did he get old enough to ride in a push car? Tell me, please!

Here is Jacob posing with his Spanish Galleon ship that we made in honor of Columbus Day. It was a really fun craft and he named it honor of me - the "Celeste".

Yesterday brave Brian took Jacob and Nicole and Andrew to the Cub Scout Zoofari event. This was a kick-off event for the scouting season held at a nifty place in a neighboring town called Bayou Wildlife Park. The kids rode ponies and went to the petting zoo and, best of all, took a forty minute tram ride where all the animals (except the alligator and the rhino) get up close and personal with the visitors. They even feed them. Everyone had a great time. And it was such perfect weather!

And, of course, some cute poses of the kids. Everyone wanted to have their picture taken with Michael at lunch today.

And one of my favorite photos for today...

Well, now I feel better. I have gotten all that off my chest! I much prefer single topic type posts, but I just couldn't see that happening. Something is better than nothing. Right?

Very cute! They are all getting so big!!!

I love Bayou Wildlife Park although I did find the emus slightly intimidating.

Glad to see you guys finally having some non-rainy weather.

I love the update and all of the pictures! That Bayou Wildlife Park looks familiar... I think that may be where we took the kids over a year ago. It was a really neat place! Oh, and that last picture is SO SWEET! :)

Yes! Yes! Yes! Especially that kind of something! Thank you!

By the way, when the heck did ANDREW get so big?!

I'll take a fruit salad post for sure. Especially with the cute pictures! I love the Michael and Andrew ones. And awesome ship, Jacob!

Great ship craft! Is it an empty milk carton?? Do you use a special book to get your craft ideas???
Love the photo of your two youngest boys, your 'baby' looking like he is taking a bite of hair??!!??

I am so ashamed that I never commented on this post, because it is absolutely adorable!!! I don't know what's wrong with me...between the pregnancy induced exhaustion and absentmindedness, I sometimes forget whether I've actually commented or if I just think I did!

At any rate, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pictures of your kids. They are just so cute! And I have to admit that I had the exact same thought as Nicole: when did Andrew get so big? I knew that little Michael was growing faster than fast, but I guess I hadn't really noticed big changes in Andrew until this post.

Very, very sweet, Celeste. I'm so glad you shared! Hope you all are having a great week!
