We thought for sure that Casper would avoid us like the plague after being caught Sunday evening. But, Mr. Nosy couldn’t resist checking out what Parker was doing and got snagged in the booty! Here he is again…

Robbie caught Casper, the albino catfish (and one of his buddies) yesterday evening. Both were released with no harm done – except perhaps to their pride…

Dropped off the girls at camp yesterday. Erin was so excited. Margaret and Kathryn don’t look quite as thrilled. I think it is the “teenager” in them…

I found this cool plant at Wal-Mart and couldn’t resist it. It is called “Etna” and is an Echeveria Hybrid.
