ok, this shot was actually from sunday, but i can't resist that sweet face. below is the top of the table my dad just built from an old bowling alley lane. it is so cool! i sincerely believe my dad can build anything.
we took the kids back to the pond to feed the fish. they had a so much fun.
have you ever seen one of these? it is a polyphemus moth. they are huge. the wingspan was about five inches.
and while we are on creatures...we saw so many dragonflies by the pond. have you ever tried to get close to one? it is nearly impossible. i remember having to complete an insect collection in a display case when i was in high school. i could never catch a dragonfly. the day after i turned in my project, i found one--deceased, perfectly preserved next to the back door of my house. no kidding.
and a little something i am excited about...the field waiting to be filled with peanut plants. i can't wait for fresh boiled peanuts.
