What do we have here?  A cave!  Let’s go!

Weeee!  I can do this!

Made it!

Check me out, Daddy!  Not only can I crawl, but I can crawl IN to stuff!

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!

Air Show

August 19th, 2013. (5 years, 2 months old.) by ben

Daddy took me to the air show again this year for pancakes and airplanes.  This time I sat in a lot more airplanes, like this Albatross:

I could turn the wheel and watch the wings move out the window.  Neat!

There was also a Harrier:

Harriers are neat because they can take off vertically!

There was also this A-26 Invader. I sat in the pilot’s seat AND got to go up where the bomber guy sits.

And then there was this biplane painted with Jelly Bellies parked all by itself.

Maybe the pilot really likes Jelly Bellies.

And just like I predicted last year, this year I did get to seem some airplanes flying.  There was one that was a biplane like the Jelly Belly one but not the Jelly Belly one that flew up and down right over the runway and smoke came out of it and he did lots of loops and turns and stuff.  I’m glad I brought my ear covers.

There were also model airplanes and helicopters.  And there were some loud planes that Daddy called P-51s that flew over right when the music ended at the start of the show.

The best part, though, was the ice cream cookie sandwich that Daddy and I shared.  It was very yummy.

Maybe next year we can take Andrew with us and we can show him around!

7 months old

August 15th, 2013. (7 months old.) by andrew

That’s right!  It’s me and I’m over seven months old now!  I’m eating yummy sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, and squash.

And I’m pumping and priming my legs getting ready to crawl.  Just wait until 8 months and you won’t be able to take these pictures any more!  I’ll be crawling away!

The Fair

August 7th, 2013. (5 years, 2 months old.) by ben

Daddy and I went to the fair to go on the rides and see the “destruction derby”!

We started with a ride on the big Ferris wheel.

I wanted to ride the big roller coaster, but the sign said I wasn’t tall enough.  Not fair!

So we found some other rides to go on.  I went on the NASCAR race ride all by myself!

And the bouncing dune buggies, too.

We had dinner and then there was ice cream for dessert.  This one was so big I couldn’t even finish it!

After we looked at the cows and goats, I got to check out the tractors.

Finally it was time to see the destruction derby.  It was at the same place the monster truck rally was.

It was really fun watching the cars drive around the dirt and smash into each other.  And then the tow trucks would come to tow them away!

I sure had a lot of fun, but maybe next year I’ll be able to go on the big rides!

Making my own lunch

August 3rd, 2013. (5 years, 2 months old.) by ben

I’m starting to make some of my own lunches.

Here I’m making some salami and cheese sandwiches for school.  My other favorite kind of sandwich is peanut butter and jelly.  And I had a peanut butter and blueberry jam sandwich the other day that was quite yummy!

Videos with Ben

August 1st, 2013. (6 months, 2 weeks old.) by andrew

Ben sometimes watches videos on the iPad.  I’m working on crawling so I can get over there and see what these ‘videos’ are…
