Big Shoes – Video

Remember that funny little picture I included on yesterday’s “Things They Say” post? Well, Laura and Mason, I mean Jackson and Chase weren’t wearing such big shoes because they were in a wedding. No, those big shoes were needed for their trip to the zoo!

The imaginations that are developing in their little brains right now just cracks me up! Right after I took the pictures of them and their feet, they were off to the zoo with Tyler. After they carried on for several minutes I just had to get the video camera out and get some of the dialog on camera! I’ve edited several minutes out, but I just have to share some of what they discussed. Oh, and the thermostat is the sheep food dispenser, just in case you were wondering what that was all about.



No clue what these flowers are, but they certainly seem happier since I transplanted them a couple of weeks ago to a shadier part of the yard.

Specs: 35mm lens, ISO 200, white balance set to “cloudy”, F 3.2, 1/50, cropped, ran the MCP Mini Fusion, sharpened some parts and darkened others.

      Helen - Thanks! I really wish I had saved the tags from the plants when I bought them 4 years ago.ReplyCancel

    Andrea - Do they close up at night? If so, they may be related to the spider wart flowers I have in my front yard… only mine are purple. The flower and leaf look very similar.ReplyCancel

      Helen - They do close at night! They also used to close when the sun got really hot (they used to be in a part of the yard that got more sun).ReplyCancel

      Helen - You were right, Andrea! I just looked up pictures of the Spiderwort Flower and it’s a match. Thanks for solving my 3 year long mystery :) ReplyCancel

    Sarah - Great picture. Those are Johnny Jump-ups (or, for the uninspired, wild pansies)ReplyCancel

Things They Say

Jackson: I scream for ice cream! I scream for ice cream! We all fall down and bumped our heads!”

Chase: Noooo… that’s not right!


Chase: Mommy, can we bring the baseball thing in the house?

Me: No, it needs to stay in the garage when you’re not using it outside.

Chase: Well, when you’re gone we can bring it into the house and use the living room for a big baseball field. That’s what Daddy said.

Yep. Kid ratted Nick out. Ha!


At the zoo: Me – “The monkey is looking for a snack!”

Jackson (to the monkey): “We’re not snacks!”


Chase: I have a belly ache.

Me: I’m sorry buddy!

Chase: Yeah, I think it’s from walking at the zoo.


Tyler to me: “When are you going to have another baby in your belly?


Chase: I’m Laura and I have a beautiful white dress. Don’t I look pretty?


Tyler, after taking a sip of my flavored water: Mommy, it’s like a party in mouth!

That’s not Jackson and Chase in the picture, and it’s not Nick and me either…

Nope. It’s Laura and Mason. More about that (with video) later this week!
