The Sprinkler thingy

   G-man loves this little paddle pool thing we got that has all these little water jets on it.  Absolutely hilarious to see him light up when he gets hit with the water. 



Bachelor Weekend

With Daph away for the weekend, it was boys only.  We had a great time! Dad is just too tired to type in all the things we did.  Pics tell the storey.

Gav working it out in the Kitchen

With Gav starting to get more mobile, we are finding it HILARIOUS to chase him around the house.  We don’t have the perfect video yet of the Frankenstein giggling jogger yet, but we will get it.  Here are some samples of what its like so far.  It gets better. 

Update late Wed night.  MSN Video is failing miserably at publishing these small videos.  I will try and upload them again tomorrow……….Some pics to buy some time……..


Father’s Day, the Chase, and Big G learns to run (sort of)

June 22, 2009 Leave a comment

We had father’s day #2 yesterday.  It was awesome.  Mom and G  sent a few specialty beers dad’s way, as well as a great book on the Cuban Missile crisis, (reading for France!) and Big G got dad some books for himself.  A hilarious gift, and they are lovely books, but they are definitely Gav reading material!

We had a great breakfast, and then dad took G for a car wash so mom could decompress.  Dad had a massage setup but his ProClub masseuse didn’t show up, so that was a bit of a let down.  We had a great walk in the afternoon in Kirkland with some frozen yoghurt, and then mom made dad’s fav meal for dinner, Chicken Parm!

Gav is definitely getting more comfortable on his feet.  He is sort of running around the house, and it is GREAT to chase him but he is still checking gravity every now and then.  HE would also probably run a little better if he didnt hold his arms our like Frankenstein, and laugh so hard.  Concentrate son!

A great day, thanks mom.  🙂

Pool Time, BBQ and shopping…….

We caught some pool time while mom had a workout today.  Then we were off to the Bright Horizons BBQ Party, where G investigated the fountains, and then some shopping before heading home…….. 



Boxcercise time!

As dad was getting ready for hockey and mom was getting set for her work out, Gav decided it was time for him to lace up the gloves and work_it_out.

Too bad he was laughing too hard to actually lay in the work, but the intent was clearly there.

And the helmet, he wears it EVERYWHERE.  I have snuck in some pics of him on the Kettler, clearly you see he doesn’t enjoy it at all :).  For the ones who don’t know, Kettler is that trike he is on, its this German company that has made the same bike for like 50 years, never changed it.  G-man needs an AM ride every_day before off to school, and likes to cap off the evening with a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood before bedtime, or before dinner is served, or both.  No no, we love it, really, we can’t get enough of pushing him around in circles, really, its fine.  We need the exercise.  As soon as possible I’ll pull off the foot deck which will expose the German engineered pedal system complete with free wheel system, so the little guy can get the miles in himself.

Right back to work, datasheets to write.
