Artsy Photos

365-feet-color.jpg

Mama had the idea to take some artsy photos of the boys' feet.

366-feet-sepia.jpg

She wasn't completely satisfied with how they came out.

367-feet-black-and-white.jpg

But, have you ever tried to corral a five year-old, a thee year-old and a six month-old for a staged photo? I think she did a great job!

Big Brother Help

362-holding-little-brother.jpg

With the boys out numbering Mama three to one during the day, Drew has stepped up to be a huge help in taking care of Landon when Mama needs a few minutes to get something done. Looks like the little guy is in good hands!

340-will-drew-playing.jpg

Will and Drew stop for a moment to smile the for camera while playing with Will's birthday gift a Step 2 WaterWheel Play Table.

341-step-2-waterwheel-play-.jpg

For what appears to be a fairly simply toy, both Drew age 5 and Will age 3 have very much enjoyed playing with the WaterWheel Play Table. It's fun to try and keep the waterwheel spinning and to sail boats down the waterfall. Not to mention, a little splashing never hurt anyone on a hot Oklahoma summer day.

335-st-louis-gateway-arch.jpg

Thanks to all the I'm-Smarter-Than-Everyone-Else-And-The-Rules-Don't-Apply-To-Me-So-_ _ _ _-You people who were visiting the St. Louis Gateway Arch and illegally parking in the completely full Old Cathedral parking lot yesterday, I got the opportunity to walk past the Arch and take some pictures of St. Louis' famous Gateway to the West.

336-st-louis-arch-wrinkles.jpg

The wrinkles in the 1/4 inch exterior stainless steel plates are readily visible and began to appear just months after construction was completed.

337-st-louis-arch-wrinkles-clos.jpg

The inner shell of the Arch is carbon steel, while the outer skin is stainless steel. The stainless steel has a 50% greater coefficient of thermal expansion than the carbon steel. When heated by the sun, the massive panels of stainless steel which were perfectly flat on the ground, buckle predictably, high on the arch. The effect is cosmetic only and does not affect the structural integrity of the 630 foot tall catenary arch.

Will is just about to blow out the candles on his birthday cake Mama made for his 3rd birthday.

Aunt Donelda Visits

302-watching-video-games.jpg

Aunt Donelda came to visit for an extended weekend with the boys to coincide with Will's third birthday. The boys took advantage of the situation to show off their latest video game accomplishments. Video games are always more fun with someone watching you!

I recently cleaned out my clothes closet for the first time in a long, long, time.

301-shirts-for-donation.jpg

In addition to some nice suits, miscellaneous shirts, shorts and pants, I had a few dress shirts that "shrunk" at the cleaners over the years.

Zuni Crape Myrtle

Just some pictures of our Zuni Crape Myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica). It was after a storm so a lot of the flowers are gone. Even so, they are about the most colorful thing around during the dog days of Oklahoma summers.
