MY favorite color is pink, I think

Frank-o:  “What’s your favorite color Mom?”

Me:  “I think pink.  Pink is my favorite color.”


Frank-o:  “What about purple?”

Me:  “Sure, I like purple too.”

Frank-o:  “What about rainbow Mommy, do you like rainbow color?”

Me:  “Yes, dear, I like the colors of the rainbow.”

Frank-o: “All of dem?!”  “Your favorite color is all the colors of the rainbow.”

Me:  “Well, my favorite is pink.”

Frank-o:  “But that’s not what you said!!!!”

zoo. pool.

Daddy Buck was off the entire weekend of Mother’s Day and as I eluded to in my last post, we visited our local zoo on Saturday morning. 


What?  What’s that you say?  You don’t wear matching Cars swimming trunks and swimshirt (because you can’t bear to remove it), Ralph Lauren Polo “church” socks inside out, tball cleats, an arm full of Silly Bands, an LSU baseball cap and a smile from ear to ear to the zoo?! 


Well, Frank-o does!!


‘Here kitty, kitty, kitty!’



As always, just around every curve…..



Cool, exciting animals.  The boys look through each cage, exhibit, display like they’ve never seen them before; with total excitement. 

mother's day weekend (2010)  

Can’t leave the zoo without a visit to the park.  Daddy Buck and I enjoyed this part too!!  See?!




We also made two visits to our club swimming pool, as it was opening weekend! 

Buck-a-roo enjoyed every minute of it…. nevermind the minor detail that it was a bit on the cold side.  Air temperature (cloudy and overcast 71-76degrees) and water temperature!



Frank-o was less than thrilled about the pool visits.  He tried.  He tried hard.  But he just couldn’t make a go of it!  The blue lips in this picture could be from the blue raspberry Airhead that he had eaten, though at one point I’m pretty certain his lips were close to this color because he was that cold.



A good weekend indeed!

This is my 5th

…..Mother’s Day!


Thanks to these two caged animals!

I’ll give you three guesses as to where we spent the first half of day one of my Mother’s Day weekend {and your first two guesses don’t count}.

On tap for tomorrow is church, brunch with Daddy Buck’s family, and day 2 of opening weekend at our swimming pool. 

Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

It’s that time of year again for us!

By us, I mean them.  And I don’t use the term, them, lightly; because if you’ll recall when Buck-a-roo played tball last year, that a certain someone was not originally playing tball as he was technically too young.  By the end of the season that certain someone was unofficially a member of the team.

So, this year……


we still have a #6 and we also have a #4!


That equals 2 full-fledged tballers!!
