A Visit from Grandpa Glenn

Glenn came through yesterday, just for the day, but I was able to get some great pictures of him & Secily.

Larson wasn't being totally cooperative for the photo session:

But, he did manage to find time in his busy day to put up a little play-dough art display on the wall

In other, unrelated news, Ryan shaved his head.

Me, Myself, and....My

Larson does not yet have the word "I" in his vocabulary. He instead subs in the word "my". So, a few of his most commonly used sentences these days are:
"Mom, look what my did!"
"What do my get?"
We haven't done much is a brief sampling of our last week:
Aunt Lesley left us last Thursday (sniff, sniff) but we did get a visit from Aunt Elizabeth on Saturday! :)

Larson has been trying to work the Healy shoes - they are only about 10 sizes too big, but that doesn't stop him from having a good time!

Ryan made a strawberry smoothie....the kids couldn't get enough!

I know I have not posted in a really long time. I haven't been away, I have no good excuse actually... so here is a brief catch up of what has been going on:

We went out to the lake last weekend with Bryan. The kids love the boat. Especially Larson - he just wants to "go fast in the boat". He seems a little nervous about anyone riding behind the boat, but as soon as we get home, all he does is pretend that he is wake-boarding!
Some pics from the lake -
Bryan wake boarding - throwing something big:

Secily enjoying the boat ride, in her own special seat:
Larson wanting to take over the captain's chair:
We have been doing a lot of normal, everyday stuff like mowing the lawn, which to some of you, and to me seems like a pretty mundane thing, but not so to Larson. Lawn-mowing day is his favorite. Here are Ryan & Larson finishing Larson's favorite activity ever....weed-eating!
The kids and I have also been enjoying the weather, and spending a lot of time at the pool, or anywhere else that is wet. Larson & Secily both love the splash park:

We have had Lesley (Ryan's sister) staying with us for the past 3 1/2 weeks. It has been so much fun to have her around! Larson calls her "Auntie Lefley". Ryan has called Lesley, Secily, and Secily, Lesley. It can be rather confusing. Here is Secily & Aunt Lesley, or Lesley and Aunt Secily...however you want to say it:
