Easily Amused

That's my Kendall...easily amused. We got so much rain last week with all the storms that rolled through, that one of our tiles popped up and the water wasn't draining under our driveway the way it should. When Barry fixed it, the water rushed through the tile and down toward the pond. Kendall thought this was the perfect opportunity for a little fun...of the wet variety! She ran in and put on her suit, pulled out the slide, and actually tried to ride the sandbox lid "down the rapids"...LOL! I missed that shot, but snapped this pic and thought it was great. What joy! Obviously, she was having a rockin' good time. Too bad Noah wasn't awake to share in the fun! Oh well, maybe next time!

In other news, on my way to pick Kendall up from school on Wednesday, I pulled up to the intersection of two country roads, and lo and behold, there was a turtle crossing the road. He looked just like the on Scout killed, but a little bigger. After much deliberation about whether or not it was a good idea to bring him home, I figured what the hell and put him in the trunk. (He peed on my massage table...can you believe that? Thank goodness it has a case!) She was so stinkin' excited when I showed her!!! She played with him in the inflatable pool for a few hours, but then Scout started to show some interest, so we set the little guy free out by our pond. Maybe we'll see him again this summer. I think it helped to ease the loss of Paint, the previous turtle...if only just a little bit. She sure looks happy, doesn't she?
