May 26th

Trip to the allergy doctor.

We go to the allergy doctor every 18 months to get him retested...looks like he's still allergic to everything! :(

The spots on the left are peanut and milk and milk proteins and the ones on the right are kiwi and cucumber. The spots actually got bigger, this was about 5 minutes after he got his arm pricked

May 21st

I brought my camera to the park thinking that I would take a picture of a flower or something then my kids unexpectedly posed for me (even the dog)...what a pleasant surprise!

We've been getting unusually hot weather this spring so everything is blooming early. Usually this Clematis doesn't bloom until some time in June

Let me at him!

This chipmunk loves to hang out on our step and torment the dog. After about 15mins, I eventually let the dog out to have his fun :)

Weed Garden

This is supposed to be my vegetable garden but right now it's the home of a forest of weeds. They're actually kind of pretty by I guess I should pull them out before they turn to seed. Hopefully you'll see a nicely planted veggie garden in a couple of weeks

This month we read a mystery novel called "Three Bags Full". I thought it was pretty good but's narrated by a flock of sheep!
