In our backyard you will find giant blue hydrangeas the size of dinner plates and purple butterfly bushes that are about 10 feet tall.
Some delicate lavender hydrangeas
A winding stream,
with a little boy fishing,
that ends with a round koi pond with a cute little girl to show it off.

This week was VBS at our church, other-wise known as "Mommy-Gets-The-Mornings-To-Unpack-Uninterrupted Week."
Annabelle received a very special award, Best Listener! I am super proud of her, especially since she has the propensity to exercise her mouth more than her ears in most situations.

This Saturday, Ricky decided it was time to get me out of the mountains of boxes and packing paper for a family hike to Wallace Falls.
Violet's new-found swimming skills have been impressing her teacher. I probably could have enrolled her in a higher level class, since she miraculously began swimming recently. She has been practicing her Chicken-Airplane-Soldier (elementary backstroke).

We celebrated by going out to eat at the local Chinese restaurant. Asian food here is amazing because of the large Asian population. Although most of the food was "Chinese/American," it was all made from fresh ingredients and was the best Chinese food we have ever had.
