Big boys, big dogs, and BIKES

Offroad, baby!
Racing Daddy

Having too much fun!

Big smiles

Hanging like a monkey at Happy Hollow Park

JR at school (He has his favorite "bub" shirt on--aka bug)

Sadie (or, as JR says "Tay-die")

Polk...yeah, he is peeing. It is the only time we can get him to stand still for a picture. And JR calls him "Pope."

Goodbye Rav-4, hello new Highlander

Yay for a new car for our family. Third row seat! V-6 engine! Red! Shiny!

Parrish family bloom

So, about a month has passed since planting our garden, and we now can report some progress! Squash and sunflowers are fighting to be the stars of the garden. Unfortunately, they are also fighting weeds. Cilantro is also growing well in the pot at the corner, and the tomato plant in the Topsy Turvey is doing much better than tomato plant in a pot on our back deck.

Parrish Family Garden

It started on Easter Sunday with a little plot in our side yard, the sunniest spot we have for a garden. Remsen dug and prepped the soil. So, we took out our seeds and went to work planting. JR loved pushing the seeds into the ground.

Then it was time for the water! This was the best part of all! After we watered the garden, JR ran through the spray, squealing all the way!

It is small, but this is how our garden started!

With work and play done for the day, JR celebrated with a juicebox. Ahh, the life of a kid!

On this Mother's Day, 2010

On this Mother's Day, 2010, I look at my child and think about all the fabulous things about being a mom....sweet smiles and kisses, hugs and laughing, silliness and love. I am so lucky to have the best family on earth!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom, to Emme, to Joan, and to all moms out there! You are special!

Biketown and Team

This weekend was Biketown and Spring Fling! On Friday night of Spring Fling, Spartanburg hosts cycling races downtown as part of a professional series called Speed Week. This was the 6th annual race, and it was a blast (as always!). We have been every year, but this year we decided to open our home to host a cycling team...and 3 out of 4 ladies from the pro team stayed with us. We had an awesome time spending time with our ladies--Liza, Linsey, Cat, and Tiffany, and having a team to cheer for made the event really amazing! Plus, Liza and Tiffany placed 4th and 5th!

Wooohooo! We were so glad we could go to this fun event with Emme, Nana, and Pop!
JR watching the men's race with Nana--Nana and Pop hosted a men's pro team: Hotel San Jose.

The men line up at the start....Nascar on Two Wheels, for sure!
JR enjoyed the race and liked the cookies from the VIP tent! Yum!

The women's pro race in action--they were really fast and had no crashes! team member Liza! GO LIZA! It took JR most of the weekend, but he finally learned to say her name!

Haircut results--the after!

From the Crit race in Spartanburg, Friday, April 30th. JR wanted more cowbell.
