{Friday Fragments}

HEATWAVE
This week our area has been in a god awful heatwave.  It is days like these that I wish we had a pool.  The kids and I have to settle for the kiddie pool and sprinkler.

That goes for Teddy too.

4TH OF JULY
Our local town did not have fireworks this year, due to lack of funds.  
That's sad.
As far back as I can remember there were always fireworks.  
It didn't stop us from having fun.
Our family got together with my BFFs family and the boys set off their own fireworks.

THINGS IN MY BACKYARD
 Baby Robins in a bush next to my deck.
My black lab, Ellie found them and would not leave them alone.
Mama and Papa Robins were doing nose dives at Ellie.
 Hydrangea Bush
(of course it's purple)
 The last I counted there were six frogs in my pond.
(do you see the little one under the lilly pad)

MY MOMMOM
It was nice visiting my grandmother.
She lives in an assisted living home about an hour away, so I don't get to see her often.

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY SON
He sent me a text saying: "I like poop".

MY OBSESSION
I got a new iPhone case.
Guess who's on it??
Happy Friday Friends!

  4. We had some baby robins in our yard earlier this year. When they started leaving the nest, one of them was hurt and we tried to help it. I couldn't believe all the squawking the adult birds did and dive bombing. It was quite interesting.

  5. Frogs are good since a few years ago they were dying off. The benefits of your type of pool is quick set-up and no long term maintenance. We have used the same type here.

  6. Only problem with the birds and my dog is that Ellie thought they were playing. ;-)

  8. I didn't know they were dying off. My pond is breeding heaven for them right now.

  9. Yeah, one of my dogs got hold of it while we were trying to help but I was able to get her off it pretty quickly. We ended up bringing it to a Wildlife Rehab Center we have near us. Hopefully it lived.

  11. The baby robins - adorable! We had a heat wave here too, a week or so ago. Now, it's cloudy and under 100, which feels downright cool. And the poop thing - well, kids are just gross! Have a great weekend :-)

  12. Oh Brandon that is gross! LOL

    I love that picture of the baby birds, you got a good shot of them :) Or was it Todd and his photographic skills?

    And of course you have Adam on your phone, who else right? I'm surprised he has a shirt on though ;)

  13. Oh, Adam Levine. Yummy!
    So glad your got to see your grandma. I'm sure you made her day.
    Love your kiddie pool. Isn't it amazing how a little pool and a run through the sprinkler can fill a day with fun.
    Stay cool.

  15. I'm glad you got a chance to see your grandma. Mine died at age 98 three years ago, and I miss her. Nice to meet you, by the way. This is only my 2nd Fragments.

  23. your grandmother is a beautiful lady - you are so lucky to have her. I only knew one grandparent, and she died when I was 4

  24. My kids have been in our plastic pool everyday this past weekend. and then they switch to the sprinkler when they get too much sand in the pool from the sandbox. I hauled them all to the local beach today when we started to climb over 30 degrees with the humidex (over 90 by your measurement).

    Love the iPhone case!! :)

  25. I loved the iPhone case until he got engaged! Dang it! ;-)
