Happy Father's Day

Daddy and I were watching the U.S. Open golf tournament this afternoon--what's more Father's Day than that? I figured, "Those guys are decent golfers but they've got nothing on me." Check out these mad putting skills.

Chalk Walk

Oberlin is a great small town. There are all sorts of things sponsored by the city to bring together everyone in the community. One of these is the Chalk Walk, an event that lets people draw all over the sidewalks in downtown.

To get ready for the Chalk Walk, my cousin Christina and I practiced drawing a couple of weeks ago. We traced each other on my driveway.

OK. So the body tracings are "art" but they were fun to do. The people who go to Chalk Walk are pretty talented:

Here's what I did: make H's. Green, purple, white, yellow, red, and brown.

The fun part about chalk is having colored hands. Here's what mine looked like when I was done.

Mommy, Daddy, and I went to Dallas last weekend for a wedding: Uncle Chris and his daughter Kylie were welcoming Aunt Lynsie into their life in front of family and friends.

Grandpa Tom and Grandma Stephanie have a pool in their backyard. I'm going to be taking swimming lessons soon but Mommy and Daddy had me try some "swimming".

I'm thinking about getting in the pool. Not quite there yet...

Grandpa Tom and I played with Joey (Aunt Lynsie's dog). He let me take him for a walk around the pool.

OK. I made it into the pool. The water wings and the raft made sure I didn't sink to the bottom.

Here I am at the wedding. I did a lot of moving ice from one cup to another.

In one episode of the Simpsons, Bart and Milhouse secretly repaint the lines in the elementary school parking lot, making them slightly closer together. When Bart finishes the painting, Milhouse says, "I fear to watch, yet I cannot turn away." I feel the same way about this video. Not about jumping into the pool with Daddy. But with Daddy's utter paleness--it's scary. Staring right at him is like looking into the sun.

Reading is Fun

5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed was one of my favorite books when I was younger. Here's my rendition of it.
