Happy Father's Day!

We celebrated Father's Day all weekend, starting with a trip to our local airport on Saturday.


Scheduled a fun flight for Daddy, and Renee got to tag along!

Daddy had so much fun he's now taking regular flight lessons and working on getting his pilot's liscence!

Then we went golfing at the par 3 course.  Renee now has her very own set of golf clubs (a perfect garage sale find earlier this month!), so she can practice right along with Daddy!


It was a boiling hot, humid afternoon, but luckily it wasn't raining!  Baby John looks a little tired out from the heat.  


Baby John enjoyed sitting up like a big kid in the stroller.


And this is what Renee made for her Daddy especially for Father's Day.  No, we' aren't really sure what it is... but Daddy LOVED it!

Super Daddy!

Every evening we take Apollo for a walk, and every time we head home, Renee wants to ride on Daddy's shoulders. 


And Super Daddy can't say "No" to the Chun- so even though on this G'fer (which stands for go-for, as in "go for a walk") Daddy had already started out carrying baby John...

He carried both of his kiddos all the way home!

Introducing... The Adventures of Elbert!


is Elbert.

Elbert likes to do silly things to make you laugh.
In the picture above, he is wearing the hair bow from Renee's dance recital around his neck.

When Elbert talks, his nose gets smooshed in and he says: "Wah wah-wah, wah wah-wah, wah."

Now Elbert is swishing his tail.

Stay tuned for more Adventures of Elbert!

A New Chapter Begins

The glue and stiches finally fell off!


He really enjoys sucking on his lower lip, now that he can!

And here's the big grin!  Lookin' good!

Baby John 6 months old!

Look at this sweet smile!

cute fuzzy hair!

Taking pictures of baby John is so much easier when he has his big sister to make him grin!

Apollo 1, Squirrel 0


It's hard to see in this picture, but Renee is sprinkling flowers over the dead squirrel.  Of course the mommy in me was freaking out that she stay as far away from the dead animal as possible-- but I was also very touched by her innate concern for respecting the life that was.


As you can see, Apollo was feeling very happy about his accomplishment!  Thank goodness he was not rolling in his dead squirrel!
