Picture Dump

Since I need to use my phone as my primary camera for a few weeks, I have been figuring out how it works. And I found that I had quite a few pictures hidden on there. I previously had no idea how to take them off my phone, so they were trapped there, in limbo. Now, they are outdated and not related to anything in particular....perfect for a post of their own.

So, I give you, in mostly sequential order, pictures taken on my phone in the past two months. (Duh, duh, duh.)

First picture EVER taken on my phone was at book group, right after Mother's Day. These are my peeps. I love this group. Sadly, Aubry was already gone and Jessica was on her way out. Boo. But we have added some new fabulous women in the meantime.

Back row: Tricia, Keri, McKenzie, Julie, Jessica, Becca
Front row: Cindy, Maleen, Kari, Trudy
Then the phone was useful to keep kids busy at the doctor's office. My babysitter (June) had some of the kids, so it was just Robyn, Daisy, and me.

Ah yes...good times here. Tyler took me out on a hot date....Dumpster diving. But in case you going to move, DO NOT BUY BOXES. Visit your local retail stores and find the large recycling dumpsters in the back. They are full of gold. Packing gold, that is.

I forgot my camera at the piano recital and Tyler reminded me that I had a phone on my camera. Nifty little thing. All the girls played beautifully.

We will really miss their teacher. She decided to take a break from teaching for a while to focus on her family.

That really means that the kids have been off the hook for the summer, but we will have to get things rolling again when school starts. Know any great piano teachers out there?

One night we took the kids on a walk to see some swallow nests. This pictures does not do it justice. All along under the freeway overpass, there were dozens and dozens of nests. The swallows would fly in and out and sore over the river collecting bugs for the youngins. Amazingly, there are no hovering swallows in this picture.

Here is Pearl at the splash pad. She is just too cute. (At that moment.)

Someone keeps losing teeth. Sheesh. Good thing new ones grow in. I love how ghoulish June looks in this picture.

Oh, and here is Ivory's mother day gift to me. I prayed that I would not kill it (don't die, don't die, don't die)...well, look at this beast.

Of course, it is still planted at the old house and so runs the risk of being pulled out for other landscaping, but I stopped by the neighborhood to pick up something and had to snap a picture. I think there are 16 blooms on it. Crazy.

And that ends our tour of my neglected pictures. I'll see you again soon.
