Our picnic cancelled, due to tornado and flash flood warnings!

May 26, 2014
Memorial day started off as planned.  A trip to target to buy undies, (My Little Pony ones for Ana and Planes ones for me); a few things for swimming and a picnic lunch.

On the way home it started raining, and Ana wasn't feeling very well anyway so the picnic was cancelled.

Which was actually kind of a good thing because later that afternoon we were in Mum's closet with the iPad and leftover picnic goodies keeping safe from the tornado warning.

Boring shopping but excitement at the local pool

May 25, 2014
We had all good intentions today to shop for patio furniture and plants.

We had all good intentions today to buy patio furniture and plants but came home with nothing more than a big bucket of wood protector for the fence.  Boring!

We liked the Boganvillia and the Jasmine so might go back for them later.

There was much more excitement down at the local pool where this little guy was hanging out.  He was evicted and sent back to the lake.

Our media room

May 23, 2014

At first we thought it was a bit of an oversight for Mum and Papi to purchase a house with no media room.  ALL of our friends houses have media rooms.

But that's okay.  My closet works just as well.

We planted seeds at the office this week and after being taught how to care for them my seed has come home with me.

I can't remember the name of what we've planted, so I'm just calling her "Flor"
