Home is Where the Zoo is...

I think i took about 150 million pictures while we were in Indiana for my brothers wedding - so forgive me for the several posts that are yet to come. A lot changed when my parents moved from Chicago to Indiana, but I think the most noticable thing is the abundance of animals on my parent's property. Just as a side note - only one of these animals is REALLY their pet - the rest just sort of showed up.

Who says it's not easy being green?

These pictures of my parents house makes my "do do do looking out my back door" post look a bit silly. I can't believe how green it is - I'm already homesick! I love the picture of Johnny and Rob fighting with the oars. Rob didn't realize what a great shot he had at my Dad until he saw the pictures.

What the...?

It's amazing to me how fast kids move. I was feeding Maddie when the screen door swung open. I got up, walked across the room, closed the door - and by the time I got back (less than 10 seconds later) she looked like THIS! She had enough time to grab the jar, put her hands in it, shove hands in mouth, rub hands together, spread on arms, rub in hair, and then ditch the evidence.. she chucked the babyfood onto the floor. I guess it's true: never turn your back on the ocean.

Where do you belong??

I stole this off a friend's blog, but found it interesting. Of all the cities I love - Rome is by far one of my favorites. For all of you looking for a cheap thrill, and don't subscribe to Cosmo, take the quiz and see where you belong...
You Belong in Rome

You're a big city girl with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian men - could life get any better?

"Do-Do-Do, Looking Out My Back Door"

It's actually looking out my front door - but those lyrics pop into my head whenever I look outside. I think it's a lovely view.

She wasn't amused - but we were.

I love these three shots. It shows how Madelyn's little mind works: when in trouble, RUN!
