No More Crib

December 24th, 2015. (2 years, 11 months old.) by andrew

I got my new bed today, and what’s more, I got to put it together myself – with some help from Daddy of course!

You have to be very careful.  It won’t sleep right if everything isn’t lined up.

Watch me put in the screws and use Daddy’s electric screwdriver!

All this work is making me thirsty!

Finally, it was all done!

I’m all ready to sleep in it!

Chip off the old(er) block

November 23rd, 2015. (2 years, 10 months old.) by andrew

I learned this one from Ben.  Brothers are great!

(Ed. Note: Ben has improved his technique since the linked post – he now warms blankets for M&D on the heater vents.  Andrew doesn’t share (yet).)

Peter Pumpkin Patch

October 25th, 2015. (7 years, 4 months old.) by ben

Just like last year, the Peter Pumpkin Patch was a lot of fun.

The corn pit was even bigger this year.  Actually, there were two corn pits!

I got completely buried in corn.  Woah.

And like last year, the cousins were there.  Hi Ollie!  Hi Avery!

We fed the donkeys.

And the piggies.

And the piggies ourselves.  Ice cream!  Yummy!

There was and band playing music.  Andrew really got into it.

And of course, there was pumpkin picking.

The field is huge!  So many to pick from!

Shopping cart at TJ’s

October 4th, 2015. (2 years, 8 months old.) by andrew

Daddy let me get my own cart on our last trip to Trader Joe’s.

I got to push it and put stuff in it and everything.  Daddy said I did a good job because I didn’t run into anything!

Races with Grandpa

June 3rd, 2015. (2 years, 4 months old.) by andrew

The first order of business was to sit in Grandpa’s race car.  Oh. Yeah.

There’s lots to see at the races!

Next, it was time to go see Grandpa race!  We went off to the big seats.

Here we are, ready to watch!

After we got back, Daddy took me for a ride on the scooter!

And then I had some cookies with Ben.  I’m really starting to like these races.

And it gets, EVEN BETTER.  The scooter had some tools in the seat, and it needed some work.  I was all over that.

Lastly, I tried on Grandpa’s helmet just in case he lets me drive his car.  Maybe next time?

Garbage Trucking

February 22nd, 2015. (2 years, 1 month old.) by andrew

I like to go out Garbage Trucking with Daddy on Garbage Truck day.

I used to be afraid of the big truck, but not anymore.  The driver waves at me!

Making Lemonade

February 13th, 2015. (2 years, 1 month old.) by andrew

Ho Hum… Just another day at the salt mines lemonade factory.

Is it all done?  Hmmmm…..  might be empty.

Just kidding.  I had fun and I get to drink the lemonade when it is all done.  Yum!

(Ed. Note: Ben enjoyed this activity, too.)

Quail Addition

September 1st, 2014. (19 months, 2 weeks old.) by andrew

Well, I guess M&D can add me to their quail collection.

Which is I guess why I had to get my first haircut.



I guess M&D got tired of hearing me complain about my hair getting pulled in the bib latch.

Hammering away…

March 24th, 2014. (14 months, 1 week old.) by andrew

You might remember my brudder playing with this toy.  Well, I’ve got it all figured out now, too!

Washing Machine Repair

November 15th, 2013. (10 months old.) by andrew

Ben was the expert at inspecting the old washer.  But we have a new one now, and this one is my job to check out.

Looks… shiny inside.

Better than not shiny.  Looks good!
