So this blog IS suppose to be about me, so I thought I would throw one out today that at least included me in the picture. Sort of. Last week after everyone in the house was awaken by LMA at 0630 I needed to get out of the house. Not being able to take the kids to the gym to at least get my blood pumping, I decided to hit the track. I brought LMA's bike along, even though he decided to sit on the side lines for the 30 minutes that I was running. Today was a different story. He was racing me for the first few laps, then would take a rest. Afterwards, we all stretched our legs and headed to the Farmer's Market. It was a nice start to our day.

For awhile it seemed as though LMA was the one that was copying BBZ and following him around in desperation to get him to play. Now I see that BBZ was just watching LMA from a distance. They both sit at the table across from each other and peak under the table. They both love to sit and thumb through the books for several minutes. And clearly, they just love each other.

I signed LMA up for swimming lessons this month and next. Thankfully this year he was able to become more comfortable with moving around in the big pool. Partly because he realized this year that he had grown quite a bit from last year and was able to move around with his head way above the water level. That being said, he still would slip and disappear below the surface and come up terrified-looking. But he would always go back in for more which was encouraging to see. So when I signed him up for lessons so he could be MORE comfortable, like going under water on purpose, floating on his back, and blowing bubbles in the water, he was a little skeptical. Thankfully, he's started taking steps to putting himself under water. Maybe by next month he'll get it, but even if he doesn't he'll get it sooner or later.

So it turns out BBA likes Chick Fil-A. I mean, what's not to like about Chick Fil-A? You get a good nutritious meal with fruit, veggies, and chicken. You get to play, run, and climb around after you eat. And, if you are really lucky, you get an ice cream cone or share a milkshake. Or in BBZ's case, have a milkshake. This child should really be a poster child for Chick Fil-A.

We took the boys to B&O Railroad Museum, BBZ's first visit. He was just as excited the first time LMA went here. And wouldn't be with all the trains, even in the parking lot! For Toddler Time each child was able to make and design their own crown. Little Man wanted him to be the King and Daddy and BBZ be the prince. Either way it didn't last long after this shot because the heat and humidity that day made the foam crown leave a red ring around his forehead. Thankfully it was gone the next day.

I love the way this photo came out. We had taken a Harbor Riverboat Cruise in D.C. with Gramma and Pop-pop and afterwards found a nice shady spot to have a picnic. The boys of course after they finish, needed to go wander. Don't let their innocent faces deceive you though. They are a handful.

Wow, didn't realize it had been over a month since my last picture of the day entry. Lately, I've been adding more entries into Facebook than I have here in Blogger-land. Mainly because I have an automatic update button from iphoto... and not to mention the Facebook app on my iPod. So when I stopped by to add some entries for those of you who do not follow me on Facebook, I decided this ho-hum blog design needed a facelift.
Voila! I think it's whimsical, fun, and exciting. Not to mention it has purple in it to complement the orange background, which Little Man loves the color purple.
Hopefully, I'll be able to go back to entering a picture of the day. Bear with me while I try.
