Back in April....

It has been pretty crazy weather around here lately.

It seems like since my mom got here, it has been as if she has brought the Tropical Weather with her. It has been rainy for days on end, and rainy all day long.  Maybe she brought weather from Washington.

ANYWAY, I was looking through my "archives", and came across ones of the sweet little boy doing one of his favorite activities - wallowing in muddy puddles.

Once again, I present to you, Muddy Puddles Woods.

Thinking back now..

Just remembering the time back in February when the dog wrenched my back hurtling down the steps, and I was pretty much an invalid for a couple of weeks,

And then in pain for a few more months.

Poh Poh's here!

My mom got into Abilene on Mother's Day :)

In fact, she got to do a double Mother's Day. She left Malaysia on Sunday morning, and arrived in the States the same morning!
May 14 Getting Popo-001
The little boy had been so excited over Poh Poh's visit that it was all he could do to contain his anticipation.

She had had a really long journey and was hungry, so we brought her out for some Chinese Buffet :)
May 14 Getting Popo2-001
She was totally exhausted after traveling over 24 hours on 3 different planes, but the little boy managed to present a bouquet of flowers to Poh Poh before she retired for the night.



The next few days was bonding time with Grandma, and her getting over jet lag.

But we DID manage to slot in a welcome by the Bible Class ladies.

Spring Time Evening Walks

For some reason, the seasons with the nicest weather, namely Spring and Autumn, are really SHORT here where we are.
May 06 Evening Walk-001
So, when they DO come around, we like to go for evening walks after dinner.

And the boys like to goof around and pretend to be squeezing the moon while I attempt to take photos that actually make sense to someone seeing them.

The little boy has been attempting to walk the dog on his own, holding the leash and giving commands,

and he is actually doing a really good job.

I got roped into a game of tic tac toe in the dirt between Sunset Silhouette Shots.

Hillcrest Church Cajun Fest 2017

Hillcrest has had an Annual Cajun Fest for several years now.  Cindy had invited us to come by each time for a while now, but we hadn't actually done so till this year.

We were gathered in groups of 12 and seated at various tables where wondrous food was literally dumped onto paper covered tables.

The little boy was thrilled to get to eat with his hands and join in all the fun. He really enjoyed the sausages and corn on the cob, but hasn't quite acquired a taste for shrimp or crawfish as yet. :)

Then, we got to wash it all down with a Cajun Cone!

The hubs opted for Coconut flavor, I wanted Grape, and the little boy got a Rainbow Cone.
