Our Gymboree Adventure


Ben attended his first Gymboree class today and he was kind of into it. Not so much into making new friends as he was climbing all over everything...until the bubbles came out. After Gymboree we hit the Castle Playground hard...until the rain came out. We got a little wet, and just a little coated in mud/Georgia red clay that looks an awful lot like mud. After that, lunch with Dad.

All in all, a good morning. Especially since it started with that VCR incident.

The Best Laid Plans


I thought it was a brilliant move to sneak in a quick shower while Ben was soaking in some Go Diego Go, but little did I know that Ben was making a parking garage out of the VCR.

Lesson learned: just because he let me shower yesterday, doesn't mean he will everyday.

The Ben Dance

Athens is known for its music scene and it hasn't taken long for Ben's dance moves to move up a few notches. Who needs to go out when we have entertainment like this at home? video

Bath Time Fun


If bathtub snorkeling ever becomes an Olympic event, Ben's guaranteed a gold medal. He's a water-rat through and through, and since we didn't get to the pool today (scary clouds, rain every few minutes...so much for the sun always shining over Georgia) the fins came out in the tub. Not a bad end to a gloomy day.

The Park with the Zoo


We're exploring Athens and hit a city park yesterday with a zoo...Ben liked the Black Bear the best. Parents of the year we're not.
