Jack got busy blowing his bubbles! When they pop on the paper they leave the color behind!Time to pick out a different color to use...
Here is Hailey's finished masterpiece! She thought they looked like fireworks.
Jack had to take a picture of his. We've been letting them use our old camera to take pictures this week. They are having the best time with it! Jack with his masterpiece...notice the love of green and the leftover residue on his nose :-) Thankfully it wiped right off their faces...we just had to scrub hands for a couple days.
No cute crafts, no paint shirts, but they did play!!
This is one of the many things they do at SWAT practice. This is a flash bomb entry. Darren was towards the back in this footage but now he is the breacher...the guy at the door with the big stick thing...I'm sure that is NOT what it is called :-)

We had a great visit with 'Aunt Katie' this Saturday! She came over with Konnor (3) and Kelsey (4months) to play and have lunch. The kids had a great time playing trains, bubbles, and just whatever else they could get into!! We made pizza for lunch and me and Katie caught up on all our now 'mommy' stuff....in the old days it was 'girl' stuff....oh how times have changed. We met each other back when I was in the eighth grade and she was in the seventh!! She's know Darren even longer than that!! It's great to have friends that you've know so long and can reconnect with even after being apart for months or even years. Her husband is a preacher at a congregation up in TN but every time they come to GA to visit family we make sure to get together!! Love those kinds of friends :-)

I think he loved the slippery floor...
The whole gang...

It was on the Today Show this morning and I noticed it on their web site this evening. These guys raised this lion cub in 1969 and this is a video of their reunion after a year of release into the wild. Pretty cool.... If you go to the Today Show's link it's pretty funny...they say "you miss the second part when the lion forgets they aren't lions and eats them :-)" The article is pretty interesting too. I just can't believe you could walk into a department store in 1969 and buy a lion cub!! CRAZY!!

Hailey is getting so much braver!! Now she doesn't care if she goes under when she jumps off the side.
Swimming with Papa! They stayed out there for a long time after we all went in. They had a good time hanging out with each other!
Here's some of my mom's flowers out by the pool. I'm trying to play with my camera more and learn a little bit.... I just need to sit down and read the manual :-)
Some residents have moved into a little mailbox that is on the back of their back porch. They'll be evicted today! Haven't been paying any rent...
Nobody has moved into this one... I guess it looks a little scary to a bird :-) I think it's cute! We had a great time at Grandma and Papa's. Pretty soon the kids are going to figure out how to walk there on their own and I'll be in a lot of trouble!!

Last night they were able to get the second guy (16 yrs. old!) They are both being held in the JuV center. I hope they don't get off on this just because they are under age. Please keep this officer and his family in your prayers. He had been a police officer somewhere else but he'd only been with our department for a few months.
