Max defends the house

July 20th, 2009 by matt

Max found one of Ben’s swords and was running around the yard like a samurai.  He actually was attempting to strike some apples that have fallen to the ground from our newly discovered apple tree.  The tree didn’t produce any fruit last year, so we had no idea it was an apple tree.   I’ll have to keep an eye on it and prune it before next year.  Hopefully we’ll get some tasty fruit in the fall!

Lunch on the playset

July 20th, 2009 by matt

Ben and Grace decided to make a fort in the playset and enjoyed it so much they ate lunch out there.  When you’re a kid on summer vacation, a good fort is about the best thing you can come by.

Max fell asleep at dinner, he was out cold.  I tried waking him up and lifting his head up but he just kept falling back alseep.  His poor little fingers were turning purple!

Max Tries Will’s Chair

July 15th, 2009 by matt

As I mentioned a while back, I captured some video of Max sitting in Will’s chair.  Max has gotten more efficient at the entry but he has also grown a little since this video, so the ordeal is even more goofy to watch now.

Max discovered the Costco sized bin of pretzels.  Jackpot!

I think he was planning on eating them all, but we stopped him before he got too far.

Outside

Max still loves being outside and he also is the clown middle child.  He’s demonstrating both facts in this photo.

Max likes to go for walks through our path in the back yard.  The mosquitos attack us but Max doesn’t seem to mind.  He likes picking up sticks and spotting wildlife.

Track and Field

July 6th, 2009 by matt

Ben and Grace participated in the Track and Field camp again this year.  The track meet was held at the end of the camp and again we got it all in just before the rain started.  This year Ben and Grace were both on the orange team.

Here is Ben starting his 50M sprint.
