Pool Party

Back in the water..

a pool party with our dads group.

beep beep.

They even had a lawn, something us city boys aren't used to.

Bad Blogger

A shameful lack of postings around here.. I've been gone for pleasure (a long-planned backpacking trip in Yosemite) and business (a somewhat last minute trip to DC for work). So before we resume our normal bloggin around here -- a couple of housekeeping items.

Lucy still had a week off when we got back from Florida so my mom and my niece Chelsea came up to fill in.. a tremendous help. Thanks Mom & Chel!

And while we were gone Charles and Riku came up from LA to watch Larabee. Thanks guys!

Shortly after we returned, we had the pleasure of meeting one of Lonan's Georgia fans in person... Alesa!

After a close game of (almost) chess, Alesa and I were talking about how so many baby toys are electronic and whatever happened to the simple old fashioned stuff? So what arrives in the mail last week but a giant castle from Discovery Toys. A great gift - thanks Alesa!

The Last of Florida

I guess I've milked these pictures long enough. Pics from the last 2 weeks are still on the camera
but Poppa is traveling so probably won't get a chance to update again until the weekend.

The only news here is that Lonan is now an official toddler - walking like a champ.

Duck Chow

at the pond..

behind Mamaw's house.

This duck chow is kinda tasty.

Birthday Redux

We (re)marked Lonan's first birthday in Florida. He looks pretty well mannered, but here's what really happened.

and here's the result.

A cupcake was much more manageable.

Lonan's first time in a pool. We started with water wings..

but those quickly got old.

So we got a giant crab..

convertible, natch.

It traveled well.. took it Nana's house..

and was much more popular with the key demographic.

Silver Springs

Monday we went to Silver Springs with Matt and his family. We practically had the place to ourselves. Saw all sorts of interesting animals.

Babies taste just like chicken, ya know.

It was pretty hot..

but we took our time strolling around with cousins..

Some of the animals were kind of scary.

Run, Poppa, run!

We took a ride on the glass bottom boat..

which all the kids found fascinating..

especially you know who.

Lonan even got to pet a baby alligator, which he insisted on playing like a bongo. It wasn't too pleased, but luckily its mouth was taped shut.

Lonan in Florida

We're back.. happy and tanned. Nice quality time with all Lonan's family. Still sorting through oodles of pics but here are a few.
