Feeling Kinda Sunday


More hiking (but forget the "wilderness" because we found the greenway/asphalt path!) today and it was great...nice and cool, pretty leaves, lots of energy burned. And of course, back in time for football.

The Trip to the Pumpkin Patch



Our trip to get a pumpkin was a success, and we came home with two tiny pumpkins for Ben and one big pumpkin for Todd ~ this year's design is a pirate ship so we'll be talking like pirates around here for the next week.

Fire Fighter Ben

Today was "Touch a Truck Day" at the park, so Ben was in his glory getting to sit inside a fire truck, police truck, dump truck, garbage truck, you name it. Lights were flashing, horns were honking, the park was crawling with boys, it was...noisy.

Ben's favorite was the fire truck, just like in Columbus.
Today's next stop: the pumpkin patch.
More to come...

Greetings and Salutations

video Todd had Ben say hello to everyone under the sun, then said, "oh wait...I just realized the camera was on standby instead of record." So, so fired.

The Random Park Zoo

Ben and I now take regular trips to feed the ducks at this crazy park that also boasts a zoo featuring such animals as a bald eagle, bears, armadillos and turkeys. Ben only likes the alligators (and really only likes seeing the water at that), the deer, and the scary turkey, who oddly enough, lives with the deer. Early wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving... video

Ben and His Buds


Ben decided tonight that all of his most favorite toys needed to be on the chair with him while he watched his most favorite Backyardigans episode. He was up for the day at 3:30 this morning, so by dinner time tonight we didn't care what he did with the toys and where...as long as he was happy.
So tired...

And We're Back...

What better way to welcome back our filming and photo capabilities than with Ben eating...because really, that's what he does best.

Rain, rain, and more rain in Athens today; so rainy that Ben stayed in jammies all day. Cabin fever has definitely set in...

Ben's Trip to the Mall

The Georgia Square Mall is practically a carnival ~ just in from Todd getting measured for a tux...while Todd was busy, Ben and I rode the escalator no less than eight times. Up and down, up and down, exclaiming "up!" and "down!" each time. Such fun, until we had to leave. Ben had to be carried out while he screamed bloody murder...safe to say the Graichen Nation created a scene.
