Snake Tamer

My grandson loves to play in the dirt (like most kids his age) however, his mother HATES it. But it is something that Mom-mom allows.

Introducing…..Arai the Snake Tamer

Sometimes….

…. you just have to say yes.

Kids will often ask us if they can do something that they know we will or should say no to.

So every once in a while you gotta surprise them with a yes.

 

That’s what I did today I said yes to Arai getting wet with the hose with just 1 condition, that he did not wet me.

Can We Get 100?

Arai watches videos on YouTube that kids made and he wanted to make one. So being the Mom-mom that I am, I helped him with the video.  I got the cellphone and started recording. I apologize for the sound quality next time I will use the camera.

Please click Walking the Planks (it will take you to YouTube) and like his video.  If you like Ara’s video leave words of encouragement so he will continue wanting to make videos.

All comments will need to be approved by me before they are posted to YouTube.  Can’t let the mean folks leave their rudeness on his video.

Thank you in advance for your support of Arai’s Video and visiting my page!

Like cotton

The Birdhouse gourd is another plant that I am growing in my garden. This plant seems to grow about 6 inches or more a day. As of today it is almost 5 feet tall already. Per different sites I read it can get upto 30 feet long in some cases. I hope not in this case since my trellis is only 18 feet.

Birdhouse Gourd

The leaves are pretty big and Arai wanted to touch them he says that they feel like cotton. I had to see for myself and it really does feel like cotton.

Arai and Amanee in the garden.

The kids ate just as excited as I am about how we are watching our plants become food.

Oh…. my pea flowers have turned into peas!

Peas!

Gardening With the Grands

This year I decided to start a vegetable garden. My initial intention was only to try my luck with luffa gourds but that grew into birdhouse gourds other vegetables.

I have carrots (which some critters ate all the tops off), cabbage, tomatoes, onions, corn, red skinned potatoes, white potatoes & sweet potatoes, peas, string beans and watermelon.

I am finding that gardening is more work than I thought but I do enjoy it. Another time for some peace of mind.

Arai has been asking to help in the garden so I got him and my other grand-kids, his friends, (all the little kids call me mom-mom) to help plant some corn seedlings.

My peas have begun to bloom

When you get the shot!

My grandson Arai
does not like when i make his pictures black and white, he thinks it makes him look old.


This was at my daughters house and he was surprised that he  captured a shot of her dog,  Dash.

Tag Your It!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” by Don McCullin

 

Today I watched these two little squirrels chasing each other up, down and around this tree.  They were fun to watch and photograph.  It made me remember times when my bothers and I would play “tag your it”, “Mother May I” or kickball in this same backyard many years ago.  It brought back fun times.

He’d Rather Be….

My grandson, Arai, has been a bit under the weather the last couple of days with a cold and asthma acting up again.  Instead of him resting like his mother said, he’d rather be out in the snow with me taking pictures.  He did not care that he had his pajama shorts on and his shoes on the wrong feet he was determined that he was going out.

I had to convince him that if he was better tomorrow we will go out and play in the snow.

 

We are experiencing a winter wonderland. The new says that it could be as much as 12 inches.
