peacocks and swimming.

On my mind this Tuesday:

We used to have a peacock farm near our house...they sound like cats meowing, and they are very very noisy.

I think it is super cute how little kids make up games, which always seem to allow them to be the winner.

Elisabeth is officially a swimmer, I am so proud.

Jude had a major break through in the pool...he actually got in. I thought for sure with his Evil Knievel like tendencies he would love the pool...but he is a little timid in the water...

Elisabeth and Jude have been dancing to THIS song the last few days. It cracks me up.

Have a lovely Tuesday!

What's on your mind?

FUN! I love peacocks. I had the feathers and colors in my wedding. So rich looking! (even though it was cheap...hehe)

Yay for the pool accomplishments this week!!! We were driving home yesterday and randomly saw two peacocks on the side the road. They are so beautiful. It was an awesome surprise.

My in-laws have peacocks in their neighborhood and whenever we hear the meow or help sound they make, we go on a peacock hunt and look for them. So beautiful but very messy if they hang out on your roof or front porch.

the necklace is gorgeous. My aunt lived in the country when i was little and her neighbors had a peacock farm, for being such a beautiful bird they sure make the ugliest sound ever.

Those shoes are awesome! One of my good friends planned her wedding using peacock feathers and colors...it was beautiful!

Peacocks are beautiful little creatures, but I have heard that they can be a little noisy. Haha. Congrats to Jude on his accomplishments.

Today I am actually trying out the one-pan skillet cookie and surprising my husband. : )

I love peacocks!! My best friend's parents used to run a b&b along the river in Branson, MO and there was a peacock that kind of roamed the neighborhood. I named him Nebecenezzer (however you spell that) and loved him very much.

I ran over a peacock on my way to school once. Not even kidding. It was that or hit an oncoming car.

Peacocks... just beautiful! Swimming... also beautiful. Congratulations. I have had my first summer of not having to BE in the pool. Liberating. It is a whole new world. Always sitting at the pool which I don't mind. I just don't have to immerse myself in the water. AHHH.

Our local park has peacocks running around free. I've never seen a peacock farm though...that would be neat!

This post made me laugh. When I was a child we lived down the street from some people who had a peacock, and when we first heard it "meowing" we thought it was a cat caught in a tree! I was (and still am) such a cat lover that I frantically ran around searching for the poor cat, only to find out it was actually a bird. lol. Good memories.
