Hike to the Marsh

November 14th, 2015. (7 years, 5 months old.) by ben

We went for a hike out to the marsh with some friends.  The marsh is very large.

Because of the drought, the marsh is very dry – you can walk right out into it and the dirt is not wet like it normally would be.  And the plants are mostly dry and dead. We did find a cool clearing a ways in to walk around in.  Here, we found that a little ways below the nice soft dirt is a layer of clay.

We had a good time playing in the dirt, playing with the cattails, and running all over the place!

First Flight!

August 9th, 2015. (7 years, 2 months old.) by ben

OK, well it is a first flight in a small airplane, anyway.

My friend Derek invited Daddy and I to go for a ride.  At first a was a little scared, but after Derek practiced a few landings, I could tell that he was a good pilot.

You can see a lot of stuff out the window of this plane!

Trip to Doran Beach

July 24th, 2014. (6 years, 1 month old.) by ben

M&D and I took a trip out to the beach.  First we went back to the tide pools so I could show Mommy what she missed on the field trip.

Then we went over to the wave beach.  My friend Zoey came to meet us and Daddy buried us in the sand!

I want to go back again!

Pumpkin Carving

October 22nd, 2013. (5 years, 4 months old.) by ben

Last weekend was pumpkin carving with the Thomassons.

They all came over and everyone had a pumpkin to carve.  Dan was helping Jack.  He chose a hard vampire pattern.

Here’s Oliver hard at work.  His pumpkin had the most seeds.  I’m not sure if that is good or bad.

And here we are with our finished Jack-o-Lanterns.

First Day of Kindergarten

August 21st, 2013. (5 years, 2 months old.) by ben

I was very excited about my first day!  I had my lunch and backpack and I was ready to go.

Some of my friends from BCC are in my class.  Our teacher, Mrs. Pressler, is very nice.
I can’t wait to go back tomorrow!

My First Solid Food

July 30th, 2013. (6 months, 2 weeks old.) by andrew

Mommy said I was finally ready.

So far, I’ve had rice cereal (ok), prunes (woah! But getting better…), and sweet potatoes (rockin!)

Visit to the airplane museum

July 1st, 2013. (5 years, 1 month old.) by ben

It was hot dog Thursday at the air museum, so we met the Thomassons there.

There were two airplanes to go in.  The first one w went to was this T-37.

Then we went to visit a one seater airplane that Daddy says is called an F-106.

Look at me flying the F-106!

Then we took a ride over to where the flying airplanes are like the Alaska Airlines planes.  There we got to go on a visiting B-17G!


Visit to Armstrong Woods

June 29th, 2013. (5 years old.) by ben

Some friends and I took a trip to Armstrong Woods to see – and climb on – the big trees.

We had a great time!

5th Birthday

June 19th, 2013. (5 years old.) by ben

Grandpa and Nana came up to visit for my birthday.  They got me some Legos and Thomas trains which I started playing with immediately!

Later we had a few friends over for a party.  Mommy made two cakes: chocolate and vanilla!

And now the best part!   Mmmmmmm…..

(Ed. Note: Sorry for the late posting on this one…)

Picnic with Friends

Recently, I had a picnic with my friends. We play beanbags, soccer, and just ran around a lot.

We also took a break to cool down and watch some videos…
