Weekly Video

For Father's Day we had ice cream cake...which is now Grant's favorite thing to eat. He loved it. If anyone had a piece he would sit so quietly next to you waiting for a bite.

Also, Grant has become quite a helper around the house. If you give him a plastic bowl from the dishwasher or a cutting board he will put them away for you. Quite a help!

I couldn't find any music to go with this video that I liked so I thought I would share some of the music that is played in the car and around the house during the day. One of Grant's favorites.

#1 reason

The number 1 reason we have minivan.

Just open the door and he climbs right in.

Weekly Video

This is actually a video from the past two weeks. We had some family in town last week and I didn't post a video.

The Adventures Continue

We recently had Caleb to play with Grant. They both enjoyed playing with some of the new toys Grant got....but Caleb seem to enjoy them more on this day. Grant was too busy watching the dogs. Who were sleeping in the laundry room - not sure why that was so interesting but hey it kept him busy for quite awhile.

No music to this video so you can hear all the sounds two boys make.

What happened here?

So you might think Nate was washing the window right? Nope...this is the work of Baxter.

The other night Nate was playing with Baxter and saw a big weed in the front lawn. Nate decided to go outside and pull it. Baxter ran to the front door with Nate but Nate didn't let him outside. So Baxter ran right back in the bedroom and LEAPED out the open bedroom window. He was so happy to be outside with Nate. We were so happy that #1 the window was open and #2 the screen was not latched in place (thanks to small fingers around our house).

I will NEVER....

I will never drive a minivan. I must have said this statement over and over again....and yet here is what is now parked in our garage.

Our brand new minivan. We have had it for about 3 days and I must say I really do like it. It is nice to open the side door and say "Grant go get in the car"...and he does. He loves it in the car - but mainly because there are a ton of buttons to push. So as he gets in he goes right up to the front and starts messing with the AC, radio, etc.

Lesson learned: Never say never

BaCK to SChooL!

While we lived in Florida I talked about going back to school to get my MBA. But I never did go back to school...until recently.

Just the other night I took a class and graduated that night. Imagine that - pay $40 - sit for 4 hours and graduate.

Too bad the class was so my recent speeding ticket wouldn't go on my driving record.

Nap Time

Today I put Grant down for his nap and he played in his room for about a half hour and then it was quite. So I waited another 15 minutes and started to head up the stairs to check on him....and then the smell. Oh not again! He must have made a mess in his diaper before falling asleep. Oh the joys! So as I opened his door to check on him here is what I saw.

Fast asleep in the rocking chair with a dirty diaper.

Now why would he choose to sleep in the rocking chair? Oh probably because all of his toys were "sleeping' in his bed.

Weekly video

Finally some warm weather again! So you will see some photos/videos of the new pool this week. We also went to one of our favorite parks this past week. Grant played with his ball down at the skate park...until he fell down and skinned his knees (which seems to happen almost every week). I thought I would see if Grant liked cartoons....which he enjoyed for about 2 minutes.

Have a great week!

Baxter's Graduation

Baxter has his graduation last Friday. He was the star student - winning first place in the sit-stay competition and the down-stay competition. He also got second place in the tail wagging contest....beat out by a black lab (who is always wagging his tail).

Here are some clips from that night.

The Boys - Part IV

Recently we had Caleb over at our house. It is fun to watch Grant and Caleb play together. They are like two peas in a pod!
