There is a little man walking in our house.

Took us a while to steal a moment with the camera...our Zone D is now set at full-court press.

Figerman got new boots

OSU's Daycare asked that we provide rainwear for the boys, so we picked up some boots for Henry to splash through the puddles. I tried to convince Henry that they were cyclocross wellies for the pits, but he's convinced they are figerman (fireman) boots. Today, he found a leather hairnet of mine for a figerman hat, and he tromped around by the back door saying, "Bye, I'm going to figerman school to do the ladders and trucks and bucket in the sky. Bye!"

Happy Birthday Party

We had a "Happy Birthday Party" for Arthur's first birthday. The cake featured Erin's handiwork of a running game in our house: "The Trikadile [Crocodile] eats the Frog." You can see the frog on the top of the cake, but the trikadile is on the far-side of the cake.

After the party, Henry reviewed the highlights of his day in bed, while playing with Arthur's birthday toys.

366 days and no birthday

Will be celebrating my first quarter birthday next weekend when my cake buddy, Daddy, is back in town.
