Buzz Lightyear...To the Rescue

Here is Seth's costume....Buzz Lightyear.

We are working on doing a special picture booth at the church's annual Trunk 'R Treat. The deal is we take the picture in front of a green screen so then later we can drop the subject in front of a digital that's how Seth, aka Buzz, is out in the universe!

Home Again

After a busy weekend it was good to be home again and crash!

Cousin Weekend

Seth got a taste of being the big guy this weekend at Grandma & Grandpa's house. His cousins Gracie (2 yrs) and Grayson (18 months) were there and he got to teach them the ropes, including how to drive the truck.

First Field Trip

Seth took his first school field trip to the pumpkin patch. The trip included a hayride and picking out a pumpkin. Rain was on it's way so we had to move fast.

Getting ready for Trunk or Treat

Seth is ready for Halloween. We took his costume to Grandma & Grandpa's house so they could get a sneak peek.

This is what turtles do

This pic was taken outside our "cabinet" at Siloam Springs Church Camp. As I came down the stairs Seth looked at me and said..."this is what turtles do mom"

Memorable Weekend

We spent the Memorial Day Weekend with friends on a camping-floating-cave hiking-s'more making-folk music listening trip. The menfolk (Steve and Jim Jolley) went up Thursday evening and did some serious scounting for us a campsite (or campside as Seth called it).
Lesson One: We learned that vaulted bathrooms is not referring to the ceiling. Our advice....steer clear of these camp sites.....however if you don't have an option like glad your menfolk pick the site that is upwind of it and not down wind.

The rest of our crew....
car 1: Diane Jolly, son Trent, nieces Rai & Haley, and passenger Seth
car 2: Carol Rangel & daughter Samantha,
car 3: Angie Rounsvall, Ellyane Sullivan, Conor & me.....
drove up on Friday afternoon. Lesson Two: if a trip is a hop...skip...and a jump it requires a stop at a convience store to move from one stage of the trip to the next. We arrived at the camp site with burgers cooked and waiting for us.

Saturday was float day. We skeedaddled our way down to Angler's on the White River and got hooked up with our rafts. Three rafts and the two young studs (Seth & Trent) somehow finagled their way on the raft with all the single girls. Diane & I know that the teenage years are going to be a challenge. We stopped along the way and cooked some hot dogs, skipped some rocks, and enjoyed the cold clear water. We made it safely back to Anglers and after showers and dinner we headed to down Mt. View for some pickin' and some grinnin'. Lesson Three: Be careful when making not request a bluesgrass song at a folk music center.

We were all treated to pancakes Sunday morning cooked by Chef DiDi. Just as the last pancakes were coming off the griddle a little rain started to fall. We all congreagated in the Jolley tent for a little tent revival....ok....just a little devotional. We got a break in the showers and went to work dismanteling our camp. Once all loaded we traveled to the town of Fifty-Six for lunch and then to Blanchard Springs Cavern. We took the Dripstone tour....sorry no pics...forgot the camera. From there it was back to Little Rock and back to piles of camp laundry.

To all our fellow campers....thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Good Neighbors

Every day when I pick Seth up from school he wants to go home so he can play outside.
We have lots of boys in the neighborhood.....this is Seth with Will from next door.

When I look at this picture all I can think of is what Seth says almost everyday...."I want to be big like my Conor-brother">

BOYS NIGHT OUT....with Moms

Seth and his Trent-buddy out on a Friday night. They were with two hot babes who were too shy to be photographed.....okay they were with their Moms....but it is Mother's Day Weekend.
We saw Meet the Robinsons ....It was in 3-D....which explains the glasses.


Even superheros need their sleep!

Milestone Moment

Daddy teaching Conor how tie a tie.

Conor had to dress up for his entrance exam for high school.

He will be a Freshman, or firecracker as they are called at Catholic High, this fall.

Squeaky Clean Cousins

Two cousins in the tub

We don't have an arboretum to go to....but we do have Wye Mountain not far from Little Rock and here it is in springtime
