A May update

In this update you will find a bunch of items of the last few weeks. In no particular order, well – roughly in the timeline it occurred.

Simon and Max are now the proud owners of this American Flyer off-road wagon. But it is likely a better snack cart versus being loaded with two 30 plus pound boys.

We went to the mountains to spend a week with GiCi and grandmama.

Grandmama brought clay for Simon and Max and here everyone is hard at work behind the mountain house.

Simon quickly figured out how this works.

The boys love the Chris Van Dusen books and this gift from Grandmama was a big hit.

We had seen a bear, read a story about a bear, and that night a bear came visiting us.

Hanging out near a creek not to far from the mountain house outside of Boone, NC.

We all had a great time out there.

And Papa was very proud of little Max.

Early career moves

Simon seems to have decide on his career early on.  He seems to either be on the acrobat or cat (cake) burglar path.
