We had a visitor!

We saw this snapping turtle in our backyard on Thursday. It was quite big! The kids were amazed. We of course ran out to see it up close, and our neighbor Mr. Dave helped us "catch" her and put her into a bucket so that we could show her to Daddy. Neat.

I let Owen play with the cars on Thursday, and now he loves them! It's funny to watch him. He doesn't quite get how to play in them. He climbs in and climbs out, and most often makes the car fall over. But he has fun!

One more week of summer vacation! Wow! Last night we went to the mall and bought new shoes and some clothes for Sam. When did Sam start "needing" so many clothes??

Art is still working on the house...but he says he can see the light at the end of the tunnel!!

Happy Saturday!

Wow! I wouldn't have thought something like that could be just wandering around near someone's house. I guess I am just oh so northwest! The most extreme we get is a raccoon!
