My Pet Gofers?

No! Although I occasionally have a gofer mound decorating my backyard I didn't suddenly adopt a gofer village.

I've been moving dirt by the bucket-full from my mom's yard to fill up all the holes and low-spots in my backyard.  Eventually I'll turn this moon-type landscape created by the destroyers (dogs) into a smooth blank canvas ready for beautification.

I can quite imagine that nothing says "Great Day!" to a little boy quite like these dozen *Wonders*

#1: When something like this pulls up into the backyard!

#2:  When a toad is unearthed!

#3:  A huge hole!

#4:  Being with Nana and Papa

#5: Finding a great big worm!

#6:  A crane!

#7:  An enormous box flying high in the sky!

#8:  Driving the backhoe!
(and loading it on the truck)

#9:  A mountain of dirt!

#10:  Finding toys that look like the equipment that just left!

#11:  Being King of the mountain!

#12: A new hidey-hole in Nana's backyard!

Day Off With Benefits!

I had a day off today! It came with benefits...I SPENT THE DAY PLAYING! The boys and I started the fun times off by cruising over to Guthrie for a sweet breakfast treat at Missy's Donut shop.  We then hit the interstate for a short trip in search of some garage sales.  We found 2 (or 3).  Ryan found a toy fishing pole with a magnet for picking up all sorts of treasures, a fire station with a microphone that works.  Evan found a bus and a toy pistol.  We also found a couple of Nerf guns, a bunch of dinosaurs, and a couple of airplanes (for decorations).

I suppose the highlight of the day was THE ZOO!  We spent several hours at the zoo looking at tigers.
and all the other cute "kitties", and elephants, and more.

Cousin Addie and Aunt Shelly joined us for our fun day.

We had some fun while waiting for Tram rides too.

But the most fun was had with these pretty little birds...

Of course we couldn't leave before a quick splash in the water. A wonderful way to cool off!
And when it was time to go everyone had had lots of fun and was ready to call it day.  Well almost...

One of my extra special little's woke up a little too early from his nap...
He crashed...
And so did the puppy...
