End of July-End of August Randomness...

...or things that happened weeks ago that I am now just getting around to blogging.

I took the boys (Abby was sick) to visit my Grandma on her birthday.
They all rode the old rocking horse that they played on when they were younger...I should find some of those pictures and put them side by side...hmmm...

Ben enjoyed singing Old McDonald along with the cow that lights up and plays the song.

I tried to get a shot of all of them before we left but Ben was not really cooperating so this was the best I could do :)

I saw this big old dog at a gas station one day and had to get a picture!  Isn't he awesome?

I wish I would have gotten more pictures of our Olsen Family Reunion but the ones I did get are pretty cute...

Ben and "Bapa"

Matt earned his Wolf

We've grown some really good sized blackberries this year!
I love the taste but they make my throat itch like crazy.  What I've realized is that if I don't bite down on the seeds I can swallow them without much of a problem.
Yesterday, I added some whipped cream with coconut palm sugar and!  I am really enjoying that blackberry bush now :)

Just a couple of cute pictures of Andy and Ben on a Sunday morning...

One day when my new visiting teachers came, Ben felt super comfortable and climbed right up in between them to do his iPad and eat his fish :)...and make silly faces...

 And lastly, a couple of weeks ago, I leaned down over Ben to brush his teeth and was brushing away when I noticed a dark spot that should have been white.  Upon closer inspection, I realized he had lost his first tooth!  I hadn't even known it was loose!  I looked around for it, wondering if I had just knocked it out with his toothbrush...even checking around in his mouth...but found nothing.  I'm guessing he swallowed it.  I was excited and tried to talk about it with him but he was clue what I was babbling about :)
I grabbed my camera but he would not let me get a picture of it.  I seriously tried super hard but it was impossible.  I had to grab this shot when he was asleep :)

  1. The pictures with the rocking horse are fun--especially Matt and Josh, who have grown a little large for it.
    I especially like the Sunday morning photos. And that is pretty funny about Ben's reaction to your new visiting teachers.
    You had to be pretty sneaky to prove the missing tooth. : )
