Ten on Tuesday.

1. It's like a facebook revolution around here.

2. Fisher has now snuggled all of but one of his grandparents. Thanks for coming, Grampa! We missed you, Gramma.3. Reading Gorgeously Green. Jeez, all that's doing for me is making me wonder about every.single.ingredient in our bathroom. And realize there is no perfect lotion. And wonder if it's all a hype. And think that I might have to come to terms with what I can find at Target, lest I waste our retirement on so-called good for me ingredients.

4. He's a big fan of the tree swing. And it works wonders on a baby with a cold who also had to have shots. 5. For dinner tonight: Jambalaya and Sweet Corn Bread. Both favorites.

6. Nana + Pappi visited this weekend. Fisher has changed a lot since they were here in April!

7. We made a trip to the zoo to see what we could see, and lo and behold we saw something new, a butterfly exhibit. Like a huge tent (read: gorgeous, diffused light) with tame beautiful butterflies just a-flying around. This one was cerulean inside those brown spotted wings.
8. See how lovely?! It was our favorite part of the trip. 9. I got to run today. Short but sweet.

10. Did you know Labor Day is MONDAY? MONDAY! I can't believe it's unofficially the end of summer. It is, however, State Fair time, ladies and gentlemen. Stay tuned.

Look at your sweet little guy hanging in his swing- what a fun picture, J- don't you have a famous Alla swinging picture somewhere, too?!

I love that it looks like Fisher is trying to give you a kiss in that first photo.

I can't get over how big Fisher is getting to be sitting in a swing? I can't wait to hear how yummy the fried snickers are (yuk!).

Okay, so the 2nd butterfly pic is now my new non child favorite picture with sunflower as a close second. You are truly talented, and you will have to give me your secrets.

Uh...ok, maybe it's just me but does your step-dad look a lot like your dad? I had to look closely at the pics to figure that out.

Also, did you see the article in the startrib today about "green" cosmetics? http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/27288049.html?elr=KArksUUUU

The picture of the butterfly with open wings is amazing! Absolutely stunning picture! I think nature shots may be your forte.
