Anyway, without further ado, here are photos and a video from our summer thus far:
We went to Uncle Rusty's lake house for his 50th birthday party. Wilson had tons of fun hanging out in their boat house practicing his kayaking.
That same weekend, Tate came back for a sleepover. He has gotten a little chunky since moving in with his grandparents, so we put him on a strict diet of water and exercise while he was here. Wilson was his trainer.
That afternoon we got to have lunch on a REAL train!
Here's Wilson patting Daisy, Suzanne's bunny. If you've ever asked Wilson what a bunny says and he's responded with a growl, this is the rabbit that started that!
The next week we went to Perdido with Granna. This is Wilson in front of one of two cars in our parking lot that had quite original paint jobs and hood ornaments. (it's worth your time to click on the first one to enlarge it- note the grin on his face!)
These are from the 4th of July at Pop & Mim's house:
Nothing like sword fighting with a flower pot man, or sittin' on dry land in boat with your Paw
Back at home, spending the morning in the pool with his new boats.
And here are our new crafts:
Wilson painted this frame and added the construction truck stickers, then we put a picture of Shu Shu in
I've been looking for something to hang in the corner of Wilson's room over his low bookshelves, and found this mobile in a fun new craft book I bought. I replaced the circus animals in their pattern with trucks, rockets, and planes. Of course, the craft lady was able to stop all traces of air movement when she took the picture of hers, so all the things hanging were facing the right direction- I haven't mastered that skill yet!
