3 Sep -- Pool Time

We spent Labor Day morning at the pool.  The kids are doing great with the water and Charlie and Jane spent the last 10 minutes with their floaties off.

 While Charlie made last minute adjustments to his goggles, Henry wasted no such time.

 Jane would jump in all nice...

 ...but then she would appear to try and drown herself by holding her head underwater.  She is a nut in the pool.

Goggles?  I don't need no stinkin' goggles.

 Sweet hangtime.

 All he needs now is a frisbee in his mouth.

 Are you sure you are ready for this, Dad?

 Pseudo-belly flop!

Peanut butter jelly time!

1 Sep -- New Bikes

Charlie was getting a bit big for his old bike so thanks to Craigslist, he has a new bike.  

Jane had destroyed her balance bike in a wipeout while scrambling to get home before a thunderstorm rolled in, but she said the Kona Beri frozen yogurt was worth it.

Practicing tricks.

Jane learned her lesson from her previous wipeout and is wearing protective gear nowadays.  I tried to pull her shorts down over her knee pads but she said, "No, no, I want people to see the pads."

Henry said he needed some gloves for protection as well.

25 Aug -- Josh Visits Tucson!

Charlie's birthday is May 27th.  The movers packed us out on May 9th, so we told him he would have his homemade cake once the movers delivered our stuff.  (We did celebrate his real birthday in style in Switzerland!)

Charlie got his homemade cake when Josh, my roommate from Penn State, visited us for a night.

Pirate Ship Cake!

 Charlie is clearly impressed with Anna's work.

 Henry gives Josh a quick inspection before he leaves.

11 Aug -- Dan's Birthday

I had a great birthday in Tucson.

 Who needs candles!

We went for a drive up Redington Pass.

 Plenty of room.

Henry doesn't like what he sees ahead.
