I am stealing the post title and idea of "Catching Up" from my blogger friend at Morning Glories And Moonflowers. Lori did a wonderful post where she caught her readers up on the latest that was going on in her life. There has been lots going on here but I will just 'catch you up' on a few things in this post and save the rest for another post.
A few weeks ago Ray and Jayden went to a Met's game at Citifield:
I like the idea that they saved all the sites of the bases from the old Shea Stadium, and they are marked in the parking lot of the new Citifield:
I don't know why Jayden is giving a thumbs down in this photo, except maybe it was so cold that evening!
But I guess it's never too cold for ice cream!
Last week Jayden was home sick from school almost the whole week. He was off the week before for Easter vacation, he went back on Monday, and then Monday night he began running a temperature. That went on all the rest of the week. He spent most of the time watching favorite movies or playing hand-held computer games, but when he was feeling well enough we'd venture outside for a bit if it was warm and sunny, and he'd check on his tomato plants that he and 'Paw' had planted. And if the weather wasn't so nice and sunny, we'd stay in and play games or paint (usually we paint either outside or in the back screen room), but on this cold day we stayed in and painted while sitting on the kitchen floor. Very easy clean up!
And one good thing about being sick is that Grandpa brings home a toy or two with him when he comes home from work:
Our boy was feeling much better by the weekend! His allergies are still bothering him but no more fevers!
You might think this is him waiting for someone to open the front door for him:
But you would be wrong! It's just a place he likes to hang out, in between the doors!
Our lilac bushes out back are in full bloom:
And we have plenty of these big bees buzzing around all the time! Ray caught this one paying the lilacs a visit:
These pansies are coming up in an old plastic pot that was set to be discarded!
And I'm trying to play catch up on all the blog posts of yours that I have been missing. I am still having trouble accessing and/or commenting on so many blogs now too! I even have trouble getting to some of my own blogs at times!
'Hope you all enjoy a wonderful week!
