Special Exposure and Way Back Wednesday!

trying something new around here this week...

First off some special pictures from our first picking from our garden. Hunter has been so excited for "his" tomatos to grow and the cucumbers. We would check almost every day to see if anything had grown yet and then he would dance around from plant to plant saying "eat" so when we finally got to pick some cucumbers and a tomato he was very happy.

thats Ethan with just a cuke and Hunter has one of each.

Unfortunatly despite all of Hunter's excitment over the new veggies he didnt want to try them. He wouldnt take a piece of cucumber which he will sometimes eat and I thought he ate the piece of tomato but found it later on the table. Ethan must not have been around becuase he loves tomatos and will eat them like an apple. I think the next thing I will try with Hunter will be some mayo to dip some veggies in because he is loving the mayo right now. Click on the picture below for more Special Exposure Wednesday fun.

Way back along time ago (I cant remember the year but it was many many ago before dad and aunts were born so pre 1940s probably) there was another set of twin babies in the family

I know that the two babies are my dad's twin uncles Ron and Don and I know that his dad standing behind the two ladies but I dont remember exactly who the rest of the family members are.

Now fast forward to August 1, 2009 to our family reunion held in our backyard this year and this is a picture of Ron and Don as well as Ethan and Hunter. Not only were these 2 sets here there was also an 11 year old boy and girl whose grandma is the youngest sister to R&D.

How fun to see the sets of twins in your family. LOVE the old photo!

Well done in your garden! ALL of my veggies died because of us moving... UGH

Happy WBW!

maybe he will come around to eating what he grows! cute pics..that is great how you were able to get the different generations of twins.

How cool to go back and show the twin lineage. I'd have trouble finding mine, no doubt. There is one set of identical twins, my Mom's cousins but I haven't got any pics.

Wish our cucumbers and tomatoes would grow. Maybe it's the dirt? Can your little green-thumbed twins offer my daughter any gardening tips? LOL

The picture of the boys showing off the veggies is adorable!

I also love the pic of the two sets of twins. How great to have found the old picture of them as babies.

ranch would be the trick at my house although my two have yet to go back to veggies....we think it's a texture issue.

thansk for finding me and I am adding you to my list. Always good to read thoughts from another SPD mom!

Kristin said...

I love that pic of the boys in their "I love fast food" t-shirts holding up veggies!

It's strange how things run in families, huh?

SoCo mom said...

That is a great photo! Even if they won't eat all the veggies, I'll bet they liked growing some.

And if you figure out how to get them to eat the veggies -- please let me know your secret!

What a wonderful series of images, Leia! Someday we HAVE to get a veggie garden started!

Thanks so much for playing along with Way Back When-esday!

I saw you as a follower on the Apraxia Kids site. My almost 3 yo has verbal apraxia too. She's making progress quite well now, though still very hard to understand.

Does Hunter have texture issues? I've heard spearing foods with a toothpick will help, but Meghan's texture issues seem to be meats mostly.

Take care!
