Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. ~Henry James
|St. Louis Zoo with Baba|
|MacGruber and Mama (I had to grab my camera-shy guy for this pic!) |
By the way, what's up with kids who actually pose for the camera!? Sigh..I wish.
|Visiting the bunnies near Nana and Baba's house!|
|Lake Michigan with one of your best pals, Mymy!|
|Strawberry pickin' time and a VERY happy little guy!|
|4th of July and our favorite "secret" place! |
We play at this park often and MacGruber loves hiding out in here!
|4th of July with Ye and special Cambodian cake! YUM!|
|Lots of window watching!|
|New fancy schmancy Lighning McQueen chair! |
(Before I had a child, I vowed never to buy one of these...ahh..the things you say!)
|Batting cages at Wisconsin Dells!|
|Backyard pool fun!|
|Chill time after playtime with some of your besties!|
|Gumball machine from Ye...eeek!|
|The King of the World on your super Strider!|
|Bike rides to the park to play football with Daddy and J-Rod! There were SO many bike rides this summer...like every.single.day. up and down the street....our poor neighbors were probably so sick of seeing us!|
|Garage sale find and races with Baba!|
|Lots of excitement (Yes, MacGruber still does his "shake!") over another awesome garage sale find! |
Can you say $6?! Woot!
|Transition to the big boy bed! MacGruber chose this on his own timing and has done beautifully! |
You are such a big kiddo, buddy!
|Angry birds with Nana!|
|One big cheer for summer!!|
|Fishing with Baba!|
|Speedy guy on the Strider!|
|My silly boy who loves playing with these beads!|
A few thoughts for memories sake:
-Does ninja moves after watching "American Ninja" show with Mama and Daddy.
-Says, "like and kinda" all the time, example, "Mama, that food was like so kinda good!"
-Loves hearing and telling stories we (or he) make up!
-Still dislike getting hair washed in the bathtub and often say, "I just don't like that, Mama!" however, you have become such a great swimmer and don't mind getting splashed at the pool.
