I took Ryan to get his haircut today and he actually fell asleep while she was cutting his hair. He is passed out! At least he didn't move while she cut it.

Ryan calls binoculars noculars. Here he is looking the wrong way through the noculars at Olivia's wall. At the time there was nothing on the wall.

Pap's Little Helper

Ryan loves to help out.  This summer my dad was nailing down popped nails in the deck.  Ryan had to have a hammer too and help him out.

Carla Elfrink decided to enter the 500 piece puzzle contest. It was a timed contest to see who could finish it the fastest. She thought she had to do it alone and spent a good 40 minutes working on it by herself. Then after her daughter did some investigating, Cheryl Gammel and I got sucked into the fun. LOL! Needless to say we finished in 2 hours and 35 minutes. We won. Here we are sporting our fashionable t-shirts. I know everyone will be jealous of us. Ha!

Bed Time

Ryan loves to read books. His bed is usually full of books when we check on him before we go to bed to turn off his light. Here is how we found him last night. Isn't that cute?

Guess who found the Lego's? Guess who isn't very happy about the mess?

Mi hermana Jill

Jill celebrated her birthday pretending to be Nacho Libre's sidekick, Esqueleto. She ate Mexican, talked with a bad Spanish accent, and wore a very cool mustache. Even Jake joined in on the fun. Check out his unibrow.

Olivia has an iPod touch. What she doesn't realize is that all the pictures she takes store in the "cloud" and photo stream to my phone and computer. Here are a few priceless ones she has taken that I will now share with the world. Wahahahaha! As you can see she really likes to take pictures of herself.

Olivia got to see 2 of her friends this past weekend in Ohio. Here are some photos that they took.

Ryan discovered that if you bang two pot lids together they sound like cymbals.

Great Grandma

Every Labor Day since I was born, 44 years now, my whole family travels to Milan, OH to visit my grandma. Mimi is 97 years old. We do visit her several times a year but on Labor Day weekend Milan has the Milan Melon Festival. This year all 17 of us were there. In this years picture she is sitting with all 9 of her great grandchildren. She always has cookies in the cookie jar for the kids including the big kids too.

Flying Pig

Ryan was helping pack to leave for the weekend and he threw his pig from the upstairs balcony. Here is where it landed. Pigs do fly.
