Walk Down Memory Lane - My Week in Pictures – August 10 – August 17, 2008 #memories

August 10, 2008 – I took this picture of a some kind of huge bee. We had zipped up the gazebo when we spotted him buzzing around. He was the size of a small hummingbird. After looking at him lying on the table in some sort of spasms I may never kill another bug in my life. Look at those eyes.


August 11, 2008 – My son is so happy in this picture. We had been holding hands and spinning. He had crayons in his hand saying they were like a rainbow. I snapped this just as I let go of him while spinning.
August 12, 2008 at the park early morning with my kids. We like to go before the crowd. We usually go about 3 times a week and I spend 20 minutes of our time pushing my son on the swing. He loves it but I need him to start doing it himself. I am not helping him if I keep doing it for him. He just looked so sad sitting there as he begged me to push him.
August 13, 2008 My 42nd birthday. Interestingly enough there is not one picture of me this day. Not me getting my card or blowing out the candles on the mini cake I made either. Tear. Anyway…my friend and her children dropped by with their dog who was wearing a dress. The dog not my friend.
August 13, 2008 Since it was my birthday I am putting up two pictures. We were graced by a beautiful butterfly for the past 3 days. I think it was a painted lady. She would come in the gazebo and hang for hours. This day I got a bug catcher and caught her so that I could show Goddess who was amazed by her.  In this picture she was kissing the cage. We finally let her go after I took about 25 pictures through the lid. She still hung out in the cage long after I opened the lid.
August 14, 2008 – Why did I not take out my camera. I don’t even remember what I did this day.
August 15, 2008 I went and got my nose pierced. I have wanted one since college and never did it. The other day my husband mentioned that he was going to tell the mortician who embalms me to just pierce my nose, “she always wanted one.” I decided then and there that I waited long enough. I took my kids with me, my son held my hand and it took all of two seconds for the piercing, 3 minutes of bleeding which started 2 minutes after he was telling me that it was amazing that I wasn’t bleeding. Then about 2 days of a dull ache.

Ok, I digress..The picture…my son waited 3 weeks for this Blue’s Clues chair. He had to sleep in his own bed (not come in mine in the middle of the night) for 10 days. Every day that he did he got a Blue’s Clues sticker on a special calendar. When we finally gave it to him blown up (he was allowed to have it the whole time just not blown up – for 5 days it was in the box and the remainder, the box was opened but it wasn’t inflated) he was ecstatic. His face was priceless andhe walked around saying, “my chair is so beautiful.” This is him in his sister’s room playing X-Box.
August 16, 2008 – The annual Oz BBQ. This year the theme was Ozzapaluzza. It was awesome. My kids rocked, the food rocked, the company rocked, the music, what I did hear rocked and the coffee on my way home ROCKED.  My son’s Godmother Bek bartended and hosted a fab shindig which was supposed to feature Alternative music but somehow someone requested Brad Paisley’s, Tick song. Go figure. Interesting choice, since the person who requested the song, may or may not, have children who brought home some ticks, after feeding bread to a deer with the help of Bek’s cohost Ohio.
August 17. 2008 – Totally rocking the nose ring.
