Prepping for Camping

J & Cooper were supposed to camp out Friday night, but the weather didn't cooperate.  They used it as a sleeping bag tryout.

Smiling after he was out of the sleeping bag.  Not sure how this will go.

Wordless Wednesday - Helping Dad

I looked out the window and saw this.  When I asked what he was doing, his response was, "I need to help my Dad."  That might be the first and last times those words are uttered.

The clowning continues

Someone thinks he is a very funny dude at the dinner table. 

We love him anyway.

A boy's dream

Cooper got a sneak peek at a boy's dream come true event.  Robots and cool trucks.

Can you feel the excitement?

Someone is feeling better

Pneumonia ... nothing that amoxicillin and a chocolate milkshake can't cure.

Wordless Wednesday - Sick Dude

Please excuse the wordless-ness of this.   I think this may be the only picture I took this week.  We are now into the second week of the crud with an official diagnosis of pneumonia.  Definitely hoping for a speedy recovery for this little dude.

 In a split second, you can find a time where the motion stops for a three and a half year old.

Then it starts again.  Don't blink or you might miss it.

Turned upside down

This picture sums up the last bit of our summer.  It was a balancing act, almost upside-down, but we smiled anyway.

All I wanted for my birthday

How great is it when you ask for something and you actually get it?  I usually have a horrible time when someone asks me want I want for some upcoming holiday.  This year's birthday was easy.  I happened to mention this in my office the other day, and whalaa, I got it.  And there were cupcakes too.

It has just been that kind of year. But I am optimistic, it will get better.  If all else fails, I can put the sign to use.

Seriously, I did something I never do.  I started out the day with a cupcake.  I figured that it's my birthday.  I'm not getting any younger.  So, why not.

I got an awesome watch from J that does 10 functions I have figured out and 100 more I still have to read about.  And then have Cooper show me how to operate them.  Because you know, the kids have it all figured out no matter how technologically oriented the parents are.  Cooper's present was a fabulous zerbert.

And then AK left work early to take me out to an awesome birthday lunch topped off with a Fe Fi Fo Plum pedicure and a little shopping.  J then whisked me off to a fabulous dinner at Juleps.  He let me sleep in the next morning because I would need it to stay awake to go out with the girls later that night.  Well, actually we just went to a late dinner, so no wild festivities but that's not really my style (extent of my rebellious streak is the cupcake mentioned above).  Glad to have such great friends to celebrate good times.

I will have to remember that every birthday should be celebrated over a long weekend.  And two cupcakes, a slice of s'more cheesecake, and two key lime pie slices split four ways.  Whew, now I really have to put that fancy watch to use.

Evening conversation

As Cooper stopped by the cookie jar on our way of daycare tonight, I told him I might have something better in the car than an animal cracker.

He asked, "Gummy fruits." My response, "Better."

He decided that M&Ms would be better than gummy fruits. I asked him if anything else would be better than M&Ms, and he couldn't come up with anything else. I suggested maybe peanut butter, which he responded that he could "dip the M&Ms into the peanut butter, and that would be yummy."

His next suggestion was a "peanut butter, jelly, chocolate (Nutella) sandwich with M&Ms. That would be super yummy."

He contemplated other versions including broccoli and green beans, but decided only a giant could eat a sandwich that big.

I let him carry in the bag which held cupcakes. He giggled and gave me a sly smile as he dug into a chocolate iced chocolate cupcake. Definitely better than a green bean peanut butter sandwich, in my opinion.
