First game of hopscotch

Bradley wanted to play hopscotch the other day, not sure that Mommy or Daddy really knew how to play, but we gave it a whirl.

A travelling boy

Daddy got a new piece of carry-on luggage delivered and Bradley put it though the paces for over an hour.

Magnet Mania

We were teaching Bradley about magnets and he ran around the house seeing what all he could stick a magnet to.

Loyalhanna Picnic

We snuck out for one last swimming excursion at Loyalhanna Lake.  It was absolutely freezing, but Bradley loved it.

Picnic in the back of Daddy’s truck – yes there’s a  picnic table there, but we like the truck for some reason.

Bradley’s first movie

Bradley went on his first movie experience, we saw Ponyo.  It was incredible, the movie wasn’t bad either.

Here we are ready to leave.

And  here is the king in his throne surrounded with all his accouterments – a drink, popcorn and gummy bears.  About half way through the show, he got tired of fighting the chair folding up on his light, little body and watched the rest of the show in Daddy’s lap.

Happy Birthday Kathleen!!

Our friend Kathleen was in town from Scotland and it just happened to be her birthday.  We didn’t get any pictures, but Bradley whipped up a quick Jello offering for her with a candle sticking out of it.

Egg muscles??

Bradley was fascinated that there were such things as brown eggs, so we bought a dozen and he whipped up a batch of scrambled eggs.  We told him that brown eggs really make your muscles grow and he was totally into that!  He’s showing off his muscles in the second shot.

Wet and Wild

Daddy usually gets to shower with Deric (he seems to like it more than his baths), but this time Mommy took a run at it and this picture could win awards!

Welcome home cake

Daddy had to spend most of the week traveling for work and Bradley made him a surprise cake and sign for when he got home.  We ate it right in the living room.  Hmm, just realized that the first two shots are of you making a chicken pot pie while Daddy was home!
