All Boy

I have heard how boys can have huge appetites but I thought it didn't usually kick in until the teen years. Well the other day we went to McD's and Isaac insisted that he was hungry and wanted a double cheeseburger AND chicken nuggets. So I caved and got him both. He ate it all plus some of my french fries. Wow! Maybe he will start gaining weight this way.....

Camping weekend

We went camping last weekend, and it was so much fun. I love camping in the fall, it is cooler out, the sun goes down sooner and doesn't come up as early so we can have a campfire earlier and still get a good nights sleep.

We decided to "rough it" this weekend and went non-electrical so Isaac could be closer to the playground. He really enjoyed that. And Todd and I enjoyed being able to see the playground from our campsite.

Isaac has also become quite efficient at setting up the campfire. Both nights, he got the "fires" ready so all Todd had to do was light it. He is also very interested in stars and constellations. He can identify a couple of them.

Play Date Funny

Isaac had a friend over today for a playdate. They were playing "pretend" and this is the conversation that followed.

Isaac: I am a turtle, here is my shell. What are you?
Friend: I am a fox. This is my house. I am going to take a nap in my house.
Isaac, the turtle, also found a house.
Friend: I am coming out of my house now to find something to eat.
Me: What do foxes eat?
Friend: Turtles.

We all cracked up at that!!

Labor day weekend

I know I am way behind on this but I had to recooperate...hee hee...

We spent Labor Day weekend at my Aunt and Uncle's cabin. It was a blast! They have a great place, with plenty of room to park our camper. My parents brought their camper too. We did some jet ski riding, boat riding, four wheeling, walking, watching movies, and lots and lots of eating! We even had a couple of camp fires. It was a lot of fun!

Here is Isaac on the Jet Ski with my cousin....He just loves her...(no, they are not really crabby, they are cold, and were putting the jet ski on the trailer when I took the picture.)

Stacy's tricks.

Stacy has always known a lot of tricks, but it is just recently that Isaac has been able to get her to do them. Here is one of the harder ones to get her to do....I know it is hard to see Stacy by the blue chair but Isaac is putting a piece of dog food on her nose and she has to wait until he says ok to eat it.


Isaac enjoys painting wooden things. Here he is hard at work...

the finished product....

2nd Tooth Gone!

Our lunch conversation yesterday:

Me: Isaac, where is your front tooth?

Isaac: what do you mean, mom?

Me: Umm, it is gone. Did you lose it at school today?

Isaac: I don't know, maybe. I think I did outside, but I was running too much to notice where it landed.
