Alana has quite a collection of hair ornamentation. When we went to the farm a couple of weeks ago, she wore a large pink bow. You can see it on her head as she spreads corn for the deer: You can see it on her head as she chases Carson on his bicycle: If she’s […]

Developing Some “Junk”
July 21, 2009
Benton is really enjoying baseball this season, and he’s developed into one of the most consistent and accurate pitchers on his team. Unfortunately, he’s not one of the most powerful pitchers at the same time. Last season, he singlehandedly “invented” the off-speed pitch — realizing that a slow ball can be as hard to hit […]

Not posed at all. Carson really was considering decking Benton (he didn’t). What else would a responsible parent do but take a picture?

Carson opted for a bit of flair with his latest haircut — provided by Julie over our weekend in West Virginia.

Pie Just Tastes Better When Cast Iron Cookware and Coals Are Involved
July 12, 2009
We headed to West Virginia this past weekend, which, as usual, should trigger a handful of blog posts. Benton is a fan of Dutch oven cooking, so we spent 30 seconds while we were planning the food for the trip trying to think what a good coal-fired dish would be. We pretty quickly got to: […]

A Relatively Plain (City) Fourth of July
July 4, 2009
Benton had a sleepover birthday party tonight, so we were down one kiddo. We met up with the Pages in Plain City for fireworks. We realized these were the first professional fireworks that Alana has seen (we think). Her hand got “stuck” (as in “mouth-open-in-amazement-all-other-movement-ceased” stuck) in that bag of Ritz Bits for a bit […]
