Baby Mango

The mangoes were ripe and runny a few weeks ago, so I planted a bunch of the pits. Three of them sprouted, giving me a summer project: keeping these mini trees alive.

Yeah, I probably need more excitement in my life.

I have no idea what this thing is. It was one of the plants that came with the house and blooms for about a day before showering its pink petals.

When nature falls short, it's good to have both a sense of humor...and company (Joshua and his friend, Josh, compare domes)

Sarah - again

It's my youngest neice, Sarah, again. She's now up and about, at 16 months.

I'm somewhat fascinated by how oblivious babies and toddlers are to being photographed - that you can practically get up in their nostrils and if they care it has nothing to do with the camera, usually.

And at how rapidly the facial expressions dissolve and change.

Wet plants. I'm there.

Paz Wedding

I'm back from a 2-week hiatus. Have been bogged down by work, travel to Maryland for a wedding, yardwork, minor illness and other distractions (wait, this is a distraction).

So, the wedding: Getting married was Josh's high school friend, Mike, and Gwen - who had made her first wedding cake for our wedding almost 4 years ago. She's been honing her skills and made her own cake without even breaking a sweat in the process, it seemed. All those flowers are made of sugar - they're not real.

Most of the rest of the pictures I took are pretty silly snapshots. Here's just one of the now-tradition of serenading the groom - if you were at our wedding, you may recall... Check it out - they remembered to print lyrics this time!
