Jon is 40!

IMG_1180
This guy turned 40!

At the end of last month, yet another friend of ours turned the big 4-0. It's nice of them to all pave the way so easily before I have to do it this summer. Anyway, Jon had a happy hour get together, and Kim watched LM so we could stop by for a while.

Old friends.
Or, friends for a long time, anyway.

Fun times! It is my understanding that the fun times extended on into the evening and wee hours of the morning, culminating in karaoke. We had LM to pick-up and get to bed, so we only enjoyed the first few hours.

See you soon.

2-yr old Silliness

Silliness abounds these days:

IMG_8858.jpg
Wearing Daddy's boots and trying to wear his belt.

IMG_8868.jpg
With puzzle pieces around his neck.

IMG_8885.jpg
In his Ferrari jacket, pajamas and rain boots.
I think he went with Daddy to the donut shop in this get-up.

Being a ham at one of his favorite restaurants...Bubba's.

In fact, the other day S was going to work late, so I told LM that he and I were going to go to dinner just the two of us. I asked him where he wanted to go. S isn't a big fan of Bubba's, so LM said to me, "Let's go to Bubba's because Daddy doesn't like to go there." Of course, we went to Bubba's!

Playing checkers with Nonna!

Speaking of checkers silliness - TA-DA!

And while we're on video - here he is
"standing on one leg just like a flamingo"


And here he is "ready to rock and roll"

This day, I was packing for our Indiana trip.
He took all my shoes out of the closet...

...and then pretended to take a nap in them.

Dressed as a fireman with my black bra on as a "backpack" and S's socks on as "gloves" - ahem.

Ice Cream!

I realized, when I downloaded photos from my phone and purse camera, that I have several photos of LM eating ice cream. It's not even the heat of the summer, and we're already eating ice cream regularly...ahem.

Making Memories with Nana

When we go to Indiana, we stay at Nana's house. So, there are "downtime" activities that the boy takes in with his Nana. These are great memories:

IMG_9164.jpg
Of course, there is play-doh.

IMG_9167.jpg

IMG_9203.jpg
Then, there is time to eat donuts.

IMG_9202.jpg

IMG_9206.jpg
And, probably LM's favorite - there are books to read.

Great memories.

A Conversation with Unk

IMG_1119.jpg

One of the days we were in Indy, we went to lunch at Shapiro's with Unk, Bevi, Lori and Isaiah. After the boy was done eating, he climbed up on Unk's lap and they talked about fishing, mainly:

I have such great memories of spending time with my Unk when I was little - he used to torment me to no end, but we had fun! Lots of wonderful times.

IMG_1122.jpg

IMG_1123.jpg
How big was it?

IMG_1124.jpg
Was it THIS big?

I'm so glad my boy gets to make memories with Unk too. That's pretty awesome.

See you soon.
