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. πŸ™‚

Dancing
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 πŸ™‚ )

Grapes
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…

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

Fish
Remember Fishful Thinking? Logan can’t wait to learn more fun activities either. πŸ™‚

Makes My Monday: New Discoveries

We found grapes in our back yard! (ya. We’ve only been in our house for 2 years now LOL!)

We found a huge blueberry bush earlier this summer and raspberries/black berries last year. I wonder what we’ll find next year πŸ™‚

New back yard discoveries make my Monday.

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Head on over to see what else makes people’s Mondays (there are always some really good ones!)
