Crown Center Pumpkin Patch photos...

This post is about a week late, but the pictures were just too cute to pass up… We recently went to the Crown Center Pumpkin Patch with a bunch of friends and had a blast. See for yourself…

Chair!

Josiah finally has a chair of his own…

We ordered the “medium” version, but for some reason they sent us the “large.” He’ll definitely grow into it, though… He hasn’t really taken to sitting on it all of the time, but we’re sure he will. In any case, he needed a smaller chair that he could lounge in. Looks like this will do the job just fine.

"When I'm older..."

Josiah has quite a list of “When I’m olders” going these days.

What’s a “When I’m older”? You know, those things that kids say they’re going to do when they get older. In Josiah’s case, this might sound like, “When I’m older, I will ride a bike.” He usually says it with a very serious look on his face and a dramatic nod of the head.

Anyway, we thought it would be fun to start documenting some of these things. These are all things that he’s actually said.

When I’m older…

  • ...I will ride a bike.
  • ...I will climb a ladder.
  • ...I will climb a tree.
  • ...I will stand on the roof.
  • ...I will stand in the street.
  • ...I will drink coffee.
  • ...I will drink tea.
  • ...I will drink Dr. Pepper.
  • ...I will drink Root Beer.
More to come…

Bruiser...

We had quite the First Friday last week… Well, all two minutes of it anyway.

It was quite a shame. After eating dinner at Manny’s, we walked down to the First Friday festivities. We had just watched the woman who paints herself silver and acts like a statue — when Josiah gave her a dollar, she moved and startled him: it was pretty funny. Then, we moved on to watch a band play. Josiah was having a blast. Then it happened. While Josiah was balancing on a tire stop in the parking lot where the band was playing, he tried to jump off (special thanks to Dad’s goading). When Josiah did this, his shoe stuck to the concrete and, in that instant, he was face down on the parking lot. Much bleeding ensued.

Josiah was over it in about ten minutes, but he’s had quite a scabbed up face for the last few days — very sad.

Anyway, there have been so many developments since the last post: Josiah tells stories, he helps feed Indy the dog, he rides his tricycle all over the place, he’s got a trampoline…he makes coffee. Really. It’s great.

We’ve also gone to many events and fun things around the city: Crown Center stuff, the circus, etc. We’ve really ended the summer on a high note. (Well, except for that little scrape up there.)

We’ll try to catch everyone up soon!
