Just Chillin'

Here's Parker and Piper hanging out at home. I'm really happy that Parker has accepted Piper so readily. Aside from the occasional nibble, he does seem genuinely happy to have her around. But as I'm sure Aimee would say...she so cute, how could he not sneak a little nibble. ;o)

Now if I could just figure out this backbend thing. There's definitely something genetic about this because Parker didn't teach Piper this but she is for some reason compelled to do it. Hmmmm...very curious.

This picture was so cute there really wasn't much more for me to say about it.

Happy Dad's Day

So Father's Day started out with a huge trust ceremony between Chris and Parker. At least that's what I guess it was. Otherwise, I'm not sure why Chris allowed a 4 year old to shave his face with a real razor. Luckily, no major vessels were severe. Chris finished the task as Parker used a tongue scraper to ''shave'' his face. Yeah, not sure it that will be going back in my mouth.

Later, we headed over to Tehachapi to celebrate Father's Day with Chris' father and the rest of his family. That means paved roads and sidewalks! Time to break out the scooter. Whoa! Whoa! Whoa there buddy! Don't forget the helmet and the padding. You can't be too careful...even with a scooter. (I know. I know. We didn't have any of this safety stuff when we were kids. But when we were kids, slides were made of shiny metal that headed to 100+ degrees in the daytime. And then think of our parents, they rode in cars without carseats. All I'm saying is can you imaging what our grandkids are going to look like while they're having fun? Pretty freaking awesome -- with an emphasis on ''freak''!)

Yes. My kid is in a room filled with train track and he's playing with the empty box. Not sure if I should be worried that he's still small enough to fit completely in the box or if I should get him enrolled in a magician/illusionist class. Magic comes Parker!

So I love it that while watching ''Singing in the Rain'' Parker's compelled to get up and start dancing with the movie.

Then again, it could just be a way for him to get away with playing with his umbrella in the house.

By the end of the movie, though, he gave up on dancing and decided he wanted to ''draw the music.''

Piper makes the most of her workout today -- arching her back, touching her toes. Just watching her wipes Frankie out.

Parker demonstrates that to be a Power Ranger you don't need a mask
or just need the gloves.

And here's the requisite post-bath shot of Piper.

Unlike Parker, she takes to water like a duck so she's pretty chill about the whole experience.

Back in the Box

Yes, there seems to be a running theme for today. Here's Parker playing in his sandbox.

And then later, he's playing with another box. I tell ya. Who needs to buy toys when the most common things can be sooo amusing.

You know what. I want to encourage the young as much as the next guy. But I've got to wonder sometimes how are I should go, especially when Parker's ''art'' looks more like an execution.

The diabolical smile doesn't help matters, either.
