This evening while doing his math homework...

Zander: "I have a math test on Thursday."

Me: "Oh yeah? What's it on?"

Zander: "Paper, I guess."

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

Our driveway has somewhat of a slant to it at the top and then also down the bottom. This makes riding trikes, scootering, and the like sometimes tricky and a bit treacherous. Where Zander is/was cautious, Cassandra is carefree. The faster she goes the bigger the smile. And we simply cannot get enough of the smile so we indulge. But make no mistake, being out on a driveway with an incline and this 22-month-old is a full-time job.

Here are a few short clips from one afternoon over the weekend.

Picture Day!

One morning last week when Zander heard it was picture day at school, he decided he wanted to wear a tie and get dressed up. Who was I to stop him? Unfortunately, you have to order the photos beforehand and the last two rounds were terrible so I didn't get any! Ain't he handsome though?

Blue Skies and Summers Farm

We found ourselves enjoying perfect weather this weekend at Summers Farm in Maryland to help celebrate the birthdays of two special boys, Champe and Caden. After days and days of rain being outside under the blue sky was glorious.

Most of these photos are of Cassandra because Zander was pretty much off on his own or with other families enjoying the corn maze and various other attractions. He is six and a quarter after all. And for the record, the girl chooses her own hats. Sure, I acquire them, but she puts them on.

Big tires and sand...

Take a close look -- it's corn, NOT sand...

Little girl, big chair...

With Brad...

Zander and the elder birthday boy, Champe...
