Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ 6/3

Oh, how I love Sundays :-) More importantly, Scavenger Hunt Sunday!
Here's what the kiddos and I came up with this week:

077 Look at the SHINE on those muddy feet!! GAG! 
We had a picnic at the park and found hundreds of tiny frogs and a teeny tiny turtle down by the water.
. Well, I went after the turtle, not realizing how mushy the mud actually was.
I sunk. And kept sinking.

You just cannot imagine how FAST I told my kids NO.
We are NOT getting a puppy. No, no way, no how.
Well, I'd like you all to meet Hot Rod. The newest edition to the Pate Zoo!
Okay, we don't really have a zoo.  But sometimes I think our kids are monkies.
We went out to visit my dad, and there were four little Pom mixes running amok.
Now there are only three running amok at his place, and one at ours  :-)

Not much LEFT there to blow off, Miss Priss!
I've taken her on a few sessions with me lately, and she always comes up with
some way to get her picture taken!  :-)

092 My little man trying to take a nap in PEACE after a rough morning of swimming.
I didn't use the flash, which he hates. So at least I gave him some peace and quiet.

It's just PLAIN toast....
until you put some good ol' homemade blueberry jam on it!
Then it's delightfully delectable!

Happy hunting, all! HOW FUN, as always!!
