|Mortons in May
|My Mom and Sister try hard to keep me well
connected to the family. Being 3 hours away means I miss a lot of
family happenings. Now that we have 1-year old Brodie, I miss a
LOT. That boy is active! He is also changing so
fast. Here are some pictures they've shared with me this spring, and
mostly in the month of May.
BTW - In case you are not familiar with our family terms: Brodie is often called by his initials BKB (Brodie Keith Bloomer), and my Mom is called BG (Brown Granny - because she's Cherokee and has a tan complexion.) I didn't want to lose my non-Morton readers here!
|This was taken at Christmas, I don't think he liked the joke.||BKB ready for his TV debut|
He's a bit of a climber/escape artist.
Here he dreams of freedom while
his Mom plays spotter.
|Only a boy would pick up a toy and think, "I wonder
if this would fit over my head." He's all boy!
|Boy meets avocado||On May 3, while I was freezing in New Orleans at Jazz Fest, my folks
woke up to a white yard in Westville. That's the latest snow we remember.
|Mom calls this, "High Tech Rednecks" as Grandpa & Brodie play on the iPad|
|BG loves sugar so she makes sure Brodie gets all of it
he wants. Here he makes the most of a chocolate sucker.
|On May 20th, when the storms that produced the devastating tornado in Moore
reached Westville, this was where Dad could be found. He has always done this.
|Taken by a Westville Storm Spotter, this was the tornado that hit Westville
that night. I'm told it didn't do much damage there.
|Bloomer family pictures. Brodie wasn't feeling good that day but you
can't tell it by the
| Family outing to the Stilwell Strawberry Festival,
also included BG and several of Keith's family.
|I love that hat! (A lot more than he does, that's for sure!)|
|While they waited for the 5K to end, they set Brodie up to do
a mini-race of his own. Here he crosses the finish line in joy.
|With his proud Pa, Keith's dad.|
|How's the view from 7 feet in the air Brodie?!!
|The following day was Mother's Day so the family went to the Renaissance
Fair in Muskogee. Brodie is really checking out this goat. They have a bunch
of goats at home, but you never can be too careful.
