Smooch withdrawals

Today Matthew and I are bummed that Smooch is no longer with us. We got up early and headed to the park to get our minds off our beloved girl. It was great to be out before the sun got too hot!

Smooch and I played so many games while she was here that I am still in game-mode and wondering how I can teach M to play mancala!!! I'll have settle for Old Maid, which he is starting to get the hang of. Besides typical games, we made up our own contest to see who could toss puzzle pieces the farthest with their toes...standing backwards for added difficulty. I'm thinking this could be an Olympic sport one day!

You are getting creative with your photography! It is fun to experiment,isn't it?

I'm liking the different angles of photography...and impressed Matthew is staying still for you to get a few of the farther away pictures. He is growing up so fast!

Awwwww!! How cute are those blue crocs???

I'm sorry to hear Smooch has left. It sounds like she left you with a fun game though. :) The girls and I will have to try that one!

That green field is beautiful by the way... I thought there was no green where you are. :)
