Frogs, Frogs, Frogs

Well, we are taking out the old pool liner and
getting a new one.  We found dozens of frogs
and tiny salamanders under the old liner.
Here is a little yellow one that Brock found.

Seth is the best frog catcher of them all.  He is not afraid and
likes carrying them to the grass, where they can hop away safely!

Now, Kolby does NOT like touching frogs.  Every time I would
get my camera close when he was around them, he would
turn and give me this smile.  Ah, boys and their critters!

This is what a 7yr. olds baseball shoes look like when their coach
puts them near a mud puddle!

Having some brotherly fun on the swingset.

My lone tulip.  The only one that sprouted this year.

Here is a picture of my house.  Some of the bushes are starting to
flower and I just mowed the yard yesterday.  I'm happy that
it finally looks so green.

I took this picture for Holly.  I thought she would like that we have
a large star on the top of our barn.

Green pastures and blue skies.  What a great combination.

This last picture is my Mother's Day present.  It arrived as
a big surprise to me from my boys and Adam too.
