Cute Deric shots

More cute shots of the D-Man!  Looks like in another 2 or 3 years, he’ll be ready for his first hair cut.

Children’s Museum

Mommy & Deric took a trip to the Children’s Museum.

Looks like you spent most of the time playing in the bird seed.

One convoluted tent

Mommy and Bradley made a tent the other day that basically took up his entire room and had multiple sections to it – pretty darn cool!

Aunt JoLynn’s bug catcher

We forgot our camera all weekend and missed pics from Pittsburgh’s Children’s Festival and most from our Welcome Home Nanna party from her hip surgery.  Aunt Von sent us this picture of the bug catcher you and Aunt Jolynn made and Isaac got in there too.

As a side note, everyone always says that you look just like me, but it really hit me in this picture, even your facial expression is a dead ringer for me when I was your age!

We found our little pool while cleaning out the basement and took a break to blow it up and let Deric have some fun – don’t you just love his suit!

First boat trip

Daddy’s anticipation for this day is about 10 years in the making – Bradley’s first day on the lake.  Daddy took off work and all three of us took the boat out for a few hours.  We’ll be doing this again soon.

Getting buckled up for the day.

The Ranger met us when we got off the water and said that he was watching you fish and had to meet you and give you this “Bobber Dog” Frisbee to help you remember your day!

Happy 4th Birthday Bradley!

We had a party at Grandma Audrey’s house and slept over, as usual they were inseparable.
