How to golf without a club

Dean has taken notice over the past year that his Daddy and Papa Ron both like to golf. How does a two-year-old, aspiring golfer practice when he doesn't have clubs? Observe...

Cheers!

Red Pepper

Dean and I just got in from our very first red pepper off our own plant. He insisted on eating most of it. He is very excited about growing his own food and then eating it, but then again, when in his life has not been excited about food! Enjoy.

Blog "Dump" Time...

...that is, it's time to dump a bunch of photos on the blog because we're terribly behind. I'm pretty sure we're at the point where people have forgotten we even have a blog, but for the faithful who keep checking back, you've hit pay dirt. Enjoy!

Dean really enjoys washing the car. His babysitter let him help her wash their car the first time. Let's just say it's a good thing he had a spare change of clothes with him!


As a protective measure, we took off his shirt the first time he had berry pie. There's no use making messes you can't clean up, right?

Some things never change. Dean still LOVES reading books. In this photo, his Great Grandma Sarah is reading Aladdin to him.

Doesn't he look cool in Daddy's shades?

But not so cool he can't give his Mommy a kiss. What a nice guy!

More reading, this time with Grandpa.

The first time we took him to the park to go on the swings, he had a really hard time leaving. I almost forgot how much fun swings are.

Mommy had to help him go down the big slide. Between you and me, I think she would have slid down by herself...

Dean is fascinated by animals. We bought a membership to the Zoo this year, so it's an easy family outing. (It's also tax deductible, dollar for dollar, so why would we not buy a membership?)

This was a great find. A friend of ours tipped us off that the local community center was trying to offload their kid stuff for free. One of the items was this HUGE castle. Big thanks to Sarah on this one... the thing is several hundred dollars brand new.

A shot from another perspective. Dean asks every day if he can go outside to play on his castle. Great fun!

More reading, this time with Mommy.

For 4th of July weekend, we were in Central Oregon, enjoying the warm weather. Dean got his first chance to go swimming, which was a lot of fun for all of us. He was also really excited to try out his Spider Man board shorts.
The pool had miniature life jackets, so I strapped one on Dean and helped him learn to float on his back. Check out the video!

He even figured out that he needs to kick (though I simulated the movement so he would get the idea).


Cheers!

Dean's Improved Counting Skills (caught on video!)

Wow! I was trying to get some footage of Dean "counting," and ended up with this. This is his first time counting from 2 to 10 (I have to start him with 1) all by himself!

What a smart boy!

Cheers!
