July 31st at the park

 Back to the park we went.
William on his bike...

 The first game must have been chase!

 I'm  not sure what I did, but I got "put in jail."
My captors were checking in on me.
 I begged to get out.
They told me I had to take 60 pictures before I could get out.
 I started snapping away.
 Fortunately, they lowered it to 25..or it may have been 30?
 "What do ya think, Emerson?  Should we make it 25 or 30?" asked my youngest guard.

 I think my guards were trying to cheer me up...
It wasn't working.
They started thinking about this whole 'jail' idea.
Maybe Mimi shouldn't be in jail?
 William was doubting their decision.
Guess what?
They let me out!
 I think they wanted a pitcher for baseball...
instead of an inmate in jail.

 A little story about that blue bat and ball.
Lindsey and Donnie bought it while they were here for William.
He LOVES it!
He was walking around referring to himself as "The Baseball Player."
He'd say things like,
"The baseball player is coming up the stairs."
"The baseball player is hungry."
"The baseball player...."
He's a riot!
Fun at the park with Emerson and The Baseball Player!

July 30th...a bit of work by Joshua

 My baby boy!  We were so excited, so happy, to have Joshua here!  He's lived overseas for 3 years but now he's back in southern California.  I was happy he came to the northern part of the state to see us!
 This is trim on the house in the back.
We knew it was soft, but Joshua was ready to tackle it and get it replaced.
When they took it off, the fear was termites..
but it's not!  Whew!
 Joshua wouldn't let me take any pictures while they were working cause he had his shirt off.  
Oh, Josh!
 Instead, I took pictures of our roses that were blooming!

 Now you might think these boys are eating cereal, or ice cream.
Well, no, they're eating frozen blueberries!

Benjamin and William have been eating frozen fruit frozen for a long time.  I think this might have been a new delicacy for Emerson.  I don't quite think frozen fruit is that tasty when it's frozen,
but these boys love it!
