Daycare Anecdote

"Parker is really starting to enjoy playing more and more with his friends. One activity he seems to like is to push Lucas in the wagon around the classroom."

Daddy's First Haircut

Daddy's First HaircutParker applauds, thanking Daddy for giving him such a great hair cut.

I gave Parker his first haircut but the second attempt, on a more active Parker, proved to be too much for my limited skills. Chris, however, has been watching his hair stylest for a while now...waiting for this moment. So when he stepped up the the plate and took control of the scissors, he looked like a pro. And the haircut looked pretty good, too!

Disneyland Again

Disneyland...AgainParker's third trip to Dland. This time we headed over because Aimee was running the marathon and, while we didn't want to head over that at 7am to witness the actual run, we figured we could still congratulate her at the more civil hour of 9:30ish. (Hello! Toontown doesn't even open until 10am!)

Disneyland...AgainThis time, Parker's more mobile. And he's more responsive to everything that's going on around him. Here's Geoffrey and Thommy introducing Parker to their favorite Disney character, Pluto.

Disneyland...AgainMidway in the day Parker pooped out...and so did Thommy. But that allowed us to continue into the night for the fireworks, during which Parker, once again, fell asleep.

Hello. Bye.

Hello! Bye!

Parker loves my phone. More interesting...when he plays with it (with the keypad locked, of course) he says, "Hello. Bye." And then "click", he closes the phone. Very funny. But then it makes me wonder, am I on the phone that so much where he's mimicking me? Evidently.

Thommy and Geoffrey came over for diner and we decided to have a healthy meal of burgers, onion rings, and a pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Oh yeah, we also had a salad. And Miss Vicky's pickles...can't forget those.

BTW, that tower in the center of the table is the onion rings. It's so tall you can bare see Parker at the other end of the table!

Hey Lady! Watch it! That's my hand you're running over!

Ken and Jasmine made it down south for the Dive 'n' Movie, which gave Parker the opportunity to play with Jas. That meant lots of running around, coloring, and running over each others hands with toy cars and trains.

First Annual Dive 'n' Movie

Thommy & Jan hang out The Screen is Assembled

All hail the dive 'n' movie! I'm pleased with how the event turned out. First of all, the projector that I got off of eBay not only arrived in time but it also worked! Plus, Chris was able to put together an awesome screen. And the picture quality...for my amateur eyes...was SWEET!

Thommy & Geof Can't Wait for the Movie to Begin Kyan & Rebecca

Also, I always seem to spend most of the time in the kitchen for these shin-digs but this time I was able to get in the water with little P and relax poolside, witnessing Geoffrey's awesome, air-sucking, water-shooting-20-feet-(or more)-into-the-air cannonballs.

I hope the birthday boys, Eric and Gerry, (and girl, who knew our neighbor Cathy was also celebrating a birthday) had a good time.

To those who made the party -- thanks for coming! To those who couldn't make the party, you were missed...but don't let it happen again! :o)

Here's a shot of the the movie in progress. The red pool light was an added bonus, courtesy of Chris.
