Big Wheel In The Sky

bigwheels
Note the pony tail, and the pointed toe. :)


When I was a little girl I had a Powder Puff and my brother had a Big Wheel.

One day I left my crayons out on the picnic table, and they melted and burned my fingers.

Another time I left my purple Miss Piggy watch on the picnic table overnight (even though I remember my Mom telling me not to) and in the morning it was floating in our little swimming pool, ruined. I always thought someone had come into our backyard and put it in the pool. Why would anyone do that? I thought it was so mean. But now I realize that it probably blew off the picnic table, and into the pool. Maybe.


A boy across the street used to give me puffy stickers, and one time I was playing on his swing set - he had the really tall one with the big slide and the bench/glider swing. When we were at the top of the slide he KISSED ME - on the cheek! And I was so mad. I slid down and ran all the way home and I think I told my Mom I was sick and I threw away all the stickers he gave me.

These were taken with my iphone. I've been really lazy with my big camera lately. But eh, it's summer.

I keep promising the boys we can set out some crayons to melt. We should do that, the sun is out today.

  2. I love your summer memories.
    Also, you should put the crayons between wax paper. Then when they harden, you can peel off the shapes they've made.

  14. I'm so totally jealous. I always wanted a Big Wheel but by the time I could pedal one I was too tall, what with being all giant and everything. I'm so hoping my kids don't suffer the same fate :)

  28. Your photos are perfect summer shots. The colors, the activity, and the hair are perfect! Ivy is adorable; and your narrative is fun and interesting!

  29. For even more fun - grate some old crayons onto a white t-shirt and let it sit in the sun and melt (put something in the middle so they don't bleed throught to the back - like cardboard)It makes "cool designs"
    This is one of our favorite summer activities!
