Since April I can only think of 3 times that I have used our dryer. I love drying my clothes on the line and seeing a difference of 10 dollars a month on the electric bill is a bonus too. Well, I had hung clothes out to dry and then it rained so I left them out while we went away for the weekend.
When we returned and I took them down I found that a bird must of thought about making a home in Judson's shorts!
Speaking of clothes lines...check out this blog!
Last night Russ stopped and picked me flowers on his way home :)
He sure is pretty great!

Congratulations to my cousin Pammy and her new husband Steve. They had a beautiful wedding on Saturday at the Asa Waters Mansion in Millbury, MA. It was great to see family on such a happy occasion and to also meet new people. Sometimes I really miss the hustle and bustle and funny accents from living in Mass! Its always fun to go visit and then even better to be home in New York.
Here is part of there gift. I etched their monogram on the vase. Glass etching is so much fun!

Judson's been doing a good job of avoiding the camera lately!
Natalie has been feeling much better!
Tucker is climbing now, he thinks that it should be ok to sit on the kitchen table!
Have a great weekend!

On June 12th we found a deer tick on Natalie's side. It was very small and it couldn’t have been on her very long, maybe 12 hours/overnight. Dr. Runkel said to keep an eye on the bite, that it can take up to two weeks for a bullseye or lyme symptoms to appear. He did not put her on an antibiotic since the tick was not on for long, the bite spot was not irritated and there entire tick was removed. Well one week later a spot showed up on Nat's back (not where the tick bite was). I kept checking it but it looked like an irritated mosquito bite or spider bite. On Sunday morning, the spot was taking much more of a bullseye shape. Being a Sunday our drs. answering service said to call urgent care, and urgent care said to come right in. So off we went, and found out that it was a bullseye and that Natalie has lyme disease. Since her bullseye measured over 5 cm (hers was 7cm at that time) it will be reported to the state. So Natalie is on antibiotics for 3 weeks, since its the pink amoxicillin and Natalie loves everything "color pink" we have had no problems getting her to take her medicine. She is feeling good, only a bit more tired and fussy, like when she was teething. We go back to the Drs in three weeks for a follow up. This morning I was really surprised at how fast the bullseye is disappearing, you almost cant see it, so I didn’t take a picture. Here are pictures from the last few days:
Since using off just isn't enough, maybe we should get some of these guys. From what I hear guinea hens love ticks. Or maybe these wooden ones would just scare the ticks away!
