Happy Birthday Mark!

Mark's birthday was Saturday. We spent the morning clearing out the attic of some nasty insulation.He found a birthday present:
We are so glad to have found the source of the aroma!Then we went out to lunch to celebrate Mark turning 26. This mango drink was so good, as was the rest of lunch!
Anyway, Happy Birthday to Mark. Here's to next year.

Welcome to Summer

I will soon post pictures from our reunion and my trip to Utah and the rest of the month of May. I really will...
In the meantime, we had a great afternoon chatting on the balcony and eating dinner on the patio. The weather was gorgeous thanks to a very pleasant breeze.What? I kind of actually look a little pregnant?

Good Morning, Amy

After discovering this gusher in our front yard this morning, my neighbor and I decided to try and rescue some of that water and put in on our lawns. She was out there with a bucket. I, all high-tech and all, went to our back yard and brought out our water pump and hose. I wasn't gonna break my back. I got the pump all set up...the water was about 1/2 inch too shallow for our pump. Such a disappointment. So I decided to scrap that idea and finish my mid-morning snack. After a few bites, all that water out there was too tempting, and I realized that the gutter across the street is about 2-3 deeper. Perfect. So I get the pump out again, switch hoses to our good hose, and start walking toward the street. That's when the city finally decides to show up and turn the hydrant off! Grr. Turns out the city was purposefully flushing the hydrant.
I didn't get any water on our very dry lawn, but I did figure out why my shower was so weak this morning.

Good job to most of you. The correct answer is A. Happy Mother's Day!

I was asked for a more recent photograph of my "belly" this morning. So I decided to put you all to the test. See if you can figure out which picture is me at 13 weeks and vote (upper right corner of the blog). The other two pictures are at 7 weeks, and 10 weeks. The poll will close on Sunday morning so guess before then.
* Family - no cheating. Don't even think about looking at the last pictures I sent you!
