Frame A Day '12: Week 32--8/5-8/11

August 5--Keeping our own backyard.  We had a relatively quiet Sunday, where we stayed put and the kids had fun with the inflatable pool with built-in sprinkler.

August 6--Puppet Master--Imp and I went to the library today for a few short movies.  This library has a castle-shaped puppet theater, which Imp enjoyed immensely as well.

 August 7--Guess Who--Meet Batman, Rainbow Girl and Tiger.  We all went to the library's End of Summer (?) ice cream celebration, where we had ice cream with rainbow and chocolate sprinkles and were transformed into the trio pictured here.

 August 8--Alien Invasion--Earnest has rediscovered these snap cubes and has had fun making things like this alien.

 August 9--Twinkle, Twinkle--...reading star.  At the library, the kids get to write their name on a star for every five books they read during the summer.  Although we read every day, today was the first time that Imp added his name to the stars in the "sky".

 August 10--Happy Birthday, Nana--Today would have been my grandmother's 92nd birthday.  This hydrangea was from the basket of flowers we sent for her funeral.  I was given some of the flowers and plants to take home.  It has grown quite a bit in the five years since we planted it, and I love that it's always blooming quite beautifully around her birthday.  Since it's right on the path which leads into our house, I notice it every time we come and go.

 August 11--B-10--Every once in awhile, the kids pull out the Bingo game.  They don't necessarily play the game, but have fun calling out the numbers.
