Enjoying our tax dollars

Last Friday, Jim and I braved the nice weather (we're talking horrible allergies, people) and took Henry to play in the fountain in downtown Hillsboro. It really doesn't do it justice to say he had a good time. He ran around for an hour and STILL wasn't ready to leave, even when we said, "Henry, let's go eat dinner!" :) Maybe it sounds silly, but I was so proud of him! He was totally unafraid of the huge jets of water - even got sprayed in the eyes and up the nose and it never stopped him. It was one of those times when you really love being a parent, watching your child just love life. Not that I don't always love being a parent. Sometimes just more than others. You know what I mean. :)


I can see us getting a lot of use from these fountains this summer!

Random pics just because

...well, because I seem to never find the time to blog. Henry is doing great - learning in leaps and bounds! It's crazy how much these little tykes can take in and remember. Henry has known all his letters for about 2 months and now knows most of the normal colors (no tourquoise or magenta). He is talking more and more in short fragments - "more milk please" - and it is getting easier to understand what he wants (thank heavens!). Of course, there are always THOSE days. I mean, he IS a toddler after all. :)

Anyhow, here are some pics:

Grandpa and Henry = trouble!

I love life! (look at all those teeth!)


In mommy's shoes

One more bit of news...Henry has started calling me mommy. Love it!

I love copying my friends. :) Today, my inspiration was Jen, with her new blog design. So I googled me one, too.

I have been bad at picture taking as of late...I will make it my goal this afternoon and blog later!
