Luke's Pictures #2

Here's the rest of the pictures. I hope you all will enjoy seeing a 7 year olds perspective.

Luke's pictures #1

Here is the first of 2 slide shows of pictures Luke has taken. They are in his perspective, you will probably notice. The 3 things he takes the most pictures of are Mittens (gray cat), microwave and Matthew. Maybe not in that order, but then again... I didn't put in all of his microwave pictures, because if you've seen our microwave once or twice, that oughtta be enough, LOL (although the time is always different).

Flying Alarm Clock

Actually, the clock doesn't really fly. Just watch and see. And just try to stay asleep through this.(I think I would have a heart attack.)

Trivia question #5

In the song "I Love Rock And Roll" by Joan Jett, how much would you spend if 'you put a dime in the jukebox, baby', every time she said it?

Trivia Question #4

I am going to put a trivia question as it strikes me, so may have more than one in a day or none. Here goes the 4th:

What was Shirley's stuffed black cat's name in Laverne & Shirley?

Trivia Question of the Day

I am going to try something new. I will ask a trivia question once a day and see how many get it right. I don't know if this will work or not but I thought I would see.

OK, here is the first question:
The Captains' name on the original Star Trek was James T. Kirk. What did the T stand for?

Do you know without googling it? Guess before looking at the comments in case the answer is there.

The Midnight Son

Here is a little bit of Midnight Son from the 4th of July celebration. You'd think I was in a boat, if you start getting seasick just close your eyes. Also, you will probably want to turn your sound down at first.Not high quality picture but you can hear it pretty good.

Fun In Tennessee

These are pictures from our trip to our cabin in Tennessee and the North Carolina/Tennessee border, Memorial Day weekend this year.
Note: If you click on the picture (if you haven't figured this out already) you will go where you can see the pictures bigger and you can click on slideshow and watch (it seems to not go to the beginning so press the back arrow until you come to the first picture of my 3 boys holding their walking sticks).

We took the boys to the carnival last night. They love the carnival!! Luke's favorite ride was the strawberry (his favorite thing to eat, too). Matthew's favorite ride was the fun slide. And John's favorite ride was the train (his favorite toy is Thomas the Train). I hope you all will enjoy this slideshow. Hope you are having a wonderful 4th of July!!
