okay, okay, i'll post

Warning - there is a whole lot of cuteness going on in this post! :-)

First of all, for those who may or may not know what has been going on with me for the past couple of weeks, just know that I'm staying at my current job and all is right in the world.

Second, can I just say how excited I am that it is finally time for this?? Mom and I are going Friday...I can't wait!

Third, how did this kiddo get to be such a big boy so fast?

Wearing his cute raincoat for the first time, helping Dada fix the fence after Ben dug out of it AGAIN and broke 5 more planks. Anyone want an almost-6-years-old beagle/lab? ;-) The matching hat didn't fit on Ry's big ol' head, so he had to wear a beach hat.

Call me a terrible mother who doesn't teach her kid manners if you must, but I found this hilariously adorable. Last Sunday, I really wanted to go to Flap Jack's for breakfast, but we had gone on Saturday and I felt guilty going twice in the same weekend. So I sent Tony off for donuts. Except it was the first time in 2 years and 4 months that Ryan had let us sleep in (he slept until 9! I woke up at 8 - grr), so Hilligoss was already out of the good stuff and Marsh had not much left. Tony was able to find a few goodies for us and luckily he and I grabbed our's before Ryan got up because, as you will soon see, Ryan decided he needed to try each one before settling on a winner.

I'm not sure if a winner was ever declared, but the chocolate icing on the Bavarian was about the only thing he ate.

We might actually get our garden planted this week! The weather has been so insane lately that we've been too scared to plant yet for fear of one last frost. Tony (and Ryan) tilled up our newly expanded garden area last night, and I think they may be planting this afternoon. We planted my strawberries and blueberries last weekend on the side of the house - hopefully they will live! Not a great selection this year.

Anyway, here is Ryan playing with his dump truck in the garden...

Chasing Mama with a worm...

"Tilling" with Dada....

And a lovely dirt smile. Okay, it's a fake smile. He won't smile at the camera, but if I say "show me your teeth!" it kind of looks like a grin. I'll take what I can get.
