Eight Months Sweet

7.5 months in the top 2 pics. Two teeth, sits, crawls fast, pulls to a stand and is very pleased with himself about it (yes we are in trouble). Loves to eat (if anyone is eating he must be eating too), loves the remote and the telephone and the door stoppers and of course going outside and taking baths. Favorite baby talk is "Gullah gullah gullah" usually from behind his Paci. Shakes and jumps and splashes on command. Sweet Sweet fun baby boy, we love you!

High Country

Parker had a week and 3 days off of school before starting second grade. We spent most of it away from home. First to Grandma and Grandpa Winters to be spoiled a bit and then up to the mountains. Ahhh, the mountains. We checked out the highland games and stayed a couple of nights with our friends/cousins and their kids in a cabin lent to us by some awesome friends of ours. It was lovely. Just what we needed. Thank you! I had never been to the Highland games before but it was pretty interesting and fun to experience. We watched the tree throwing and the sheep herding exhibition, a bit of scottish dancing and heard a couple of really great scottish bands. The kids especially liked the sand art in the kids area but after about an hour of exploring they were asking to go back to the cabin. Meadow met a lovely fairy who gave her fairy dust to pat on her cheeks. Meadow disappointed: "Dad, I thought that I was going to be able to fly." For some reason blogger won't let me post the pics from the games. We took them with a different camera and it keeps saying Error 400. Weird. Anyone have any experience with this? I'll keep trying and maybe post those later. We also went back to check out the trout farm, splashed in our fav. park stream and checked out the Valle Crucis General Store. The general store had a trap door with a rubber chicken in it that the kids loved. In the olden days they used to keep real chickens in trap doors like that for trading eggs and the chickens themselves. Poor chickens.
