There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

Finally, some warm weather!

Yesterday the weather turned warm again.  Our high got to be in the upper 70's with the humidity around 78%.  When Ian got home from work and Melissa got home from shopping it was a good time to go out and finish setting the posts for the horse arena.  Layn, as usual was game to help.
Out came the wagon and he and his mom went out to pick up stones to pound around the posts so that they would be solid in the ground.  Then they came back and the fun began. Layn's job was to drop the stones into the holes around the posts so that Ian could pound them down with the bar.  Then Alex would shovel dirt in. They would repeat this process until the holes were full and the posts were solid in the ground.

As you can see Layn taks his part of the job very seriously.  (The white puddle is where Ian spilled his beer! Never leave a beer on top of a wiggly post)

The only problem with this whole process that Layn could find was waiting around for the others to perform their jobs.  They were far too slow for his liking.
Too slow and that mud puddle was way too compelling.  Finally the call of the mud became too irresistable.  When everyone's backs were turned....

boy and mud were joined!

The rest, as they say is history.

There is however nothing that a long soak and a good scrubbing cannot cure.  Once again our little boy is restored to his sweet smelling cleanness.

Everyone-except-the-photographer's back was turned.

The photographer doesn't have to clean up the little nipper! Actually it was warm enough to employ the hose.
