I want one. Except it's hilly here. But I still want one. Feel free to click through to buy me one.


Lazy days at the lake

For as many times as we've been to the Mission Viejo Lake this summer it's pathetic I don't have more photos to show for it.

Things 1-3 and Julia, roasting mallows for Sch'Mores (at least that's the way Amy says it. And since she's the one who gets us in the gate . . .)

Wise little Thing 4. Grass doesn't invade a diaper the way sand does.

Peter Piper . . .

. . . picked not-quite-a-peck of not-yet-pickled peppers to munch on in our garden. He's the fattest green caterpillar I've ever seen.

Unless you include animated green caterpillars. Then this guy wins, hands down.

Thing 3 provides scale for reference. Don't think I employed fancy angles or lens - I'm not that savvy a photographer.

Now what would you do if you had a houseful of Things and a garden you were trying to maintain through the end of a pitiful growing season?

You'd uproot a pepper plant (still supporting said caterpillar), put it in a plastic container, set it in the window, and read it a story, of course.

And what better story than the Eric Carle classic, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"?
