There’s nothing cuter than my kids making a huge, sticky, juicy, seedy mess all over the back porch for me to clean up later.
The Ladybug knows what’s what when it comes to snacking. Look at that pure concentration, folks!
This little guy (who we’re now going to call Speedracer since I spent the whole weekend listening to vroom, vroom, ahhhhh, crash! on the back porch) it still getting the hang of things like watermelon, seeds, and pretty much any snack that’s not a cracker.

And our first son…so often I don’t know whether to cry, or laugh, or buy another case of Spray ‘n Wash…
Look at those dripping, sticky, fingers!
Ok, I’m laughing.

Yes, that’s my Mr. Fix-It, spitting seeds at the camera–as if that would stop me!
