What’s Wrong with That?

He’s 15 years old this month, so if you put a purse on the bed, he is going to sleep on it. You can have it back after nap time!
We had a birthday party for him last weekend. Ara made paper hats for everyone. I listened as Ara dressed Martha-puppy in an elaborate costume while explaining to her that she needed to honor the cat on his birthday if she expected us to honor her on her birthday. Martha seemed to be treating the situation with the expected gravity as she has ribbons and bells attached to her collar. The kitty enjoyed his scrambled eggs and banana bread very much.


I’m a huge fan of this kid. She’s creative and strong willed and all together a beautiful person!

I’m bribing her to work on her semester project with reading time. I don’t know how I became such a corrupt dictator… Ara is into the wimpy kid books and I had just picked up 3 I had reserved at the library!

Her project is creative writing. She’s writing and illustrating a story! I’m excited, I think she’s doing a terrific job!

Noodles, Books, and Geocache


Ara had some days off of school for Rodeo so we took advantage and had a Mommy Daughter Date Day!

Lunch at Panda, with the princess of noodles.


A trip to the big downtown library to see her yoga teachers art on display and to find some new books. Ara found a really cool reading nook and made her self cozy.



We goofed around a little outside the library.


Then we went to look for a geocache.



The phones GPS had a lot of interference and had us walking like crazy people! Notice her feet going different directions!




The GPS would say we were 2ft from our goal and then suddenly jump to 55 ft. So I peeked at the hint and it said “fake”. Which I took to mean that this was a fake geocache. We decided to give it up and check out the fun things outside the Children’s Museum.



It was still a fun day but failing to retrieve our “treasure” would bring us back to this place to continue the hunt! To be continued…


Fun Downtown


It was a hot day, as always, but we braved the heat for a short outing downtown. We checked out a cool old “palace” as Ara called it and of course, we had to see what the MAIN library had on it’s shelves. Unfortunately that means that I am sitting with two filled book bags next to my desk. I’ve started a collection that will go back ASAP, we must have about 50 books checked out right now, yikes! Can you imagine the fees? So I guess that means a 4th trip to the library in a week. We didn’t do much else downtown, it was surprisingly dead. I guess we were out at siesta time!

Weekend Fun



Breakfast smoothie time.

Finger knitting. This blue scarf was for her Daddy.

Library time, she found a good book about a cat. She also found a bag FULL of dinosaur books. I picked up books about chickens and gardens!
