Random Updates: Dancing, Grapes, Birds, and Fish

I have all these pictures and updates that relate to nothing but themselves, so I figured I’d just do one big post about them all. 🙂

Remember last week? Marjorie wanted a skirt for dance class? Well, mom that I am…I couldn’t say “no”


(Yes, she has crocks on…we’re still in the car here 🙂 )

Remember the grapes we found in our back yard? They’re now ripe!



And Jessica – my nanny – peeled and seeded them and then had Marjorie help her bake a grape pie! Holy cow. It’s delicious!!


(I also learned something…if your fruit pie looks like it will be runny, just add an egg and it will firm right up while cooking. Who knew??)

And a little story. Marjorie had a few blueberries in her hand and told Daddy that she wanted to make a blueberry pie. He kept telling her that we didn’t have enough blueberries for a pie, so she became thoughtful … apparently she remembered the bucket full of grapes we had picked earlier in the day and said, “Grape pie!” We’d never heard of grape pie before…

Remember Marjorie’s birdhouse? I finally got around to taking a picture of it hanging up.


Remember Fishful Thinking? Logan can’t wait to learn more fun activities either. 🙂

Thursday Theater: At the Aquarium

Goddess hosts Thursday Theater. Wanna join in? Go add your name to the list!

This is from our day at the Aquarium. Again, it’s from my cell phone, so the quality isn’t great. (That and I haven’t figured out how to upload my video from my phone to YouTube and not have  it stretch out…)

At the Aquarium

We went to the Aquarium with my cousin Dave yesterday. The kids had a blast…Maggie wouldn’t let Dave put her down LOL

The pictures are pretty dark because, well, it’s the Aquarium and apparently there’s mood lighting. Plus – mom of the year that I am – I forgot my camera, so these were all taken with my phone.

After the Aquarium, we met up with Aunt Cathy and ate at Durgin Park (YUM!). Dave took this picture as we were leaving to go home.

These pictures were taken of my other baby, Tiger, in 2004. We’d just gotten the fish tank…
