A Night With Uncle Mark

Today I finally got to visit Uncle Mark's new digs.  Not bad, this whole concept of an "Apartment" was a little alien to me, not being able to yell as loud as I usually do because of other people on the other side of the walls was a different concept but besides that I had a ball!


Mommy and Daddy would never stand for this while they were making dinner but Uncle Mark just took it like a man.


Yeah, sometimes you have to visit the extended family to gain a new life perspective . . . and boy did Uncle Mark have some wisdom!

Feeling A Little More Grown-Up!

Where have I been for a week?  Hey, chill, I had a VERY short Summer Vacation and it is tough for a little guy to get back into the swing of preschool!

Daddy usually takes me to the Happy Meal Place on Friday, it is kind of a Father and Son ritual.  But I have always wondered . . . where does he go later that night to feed Mommy????

Well, tonight I got to go with him!

Turns  out Mommy and Daddy have a secret addiction to Trinidadian food they haven't told me about.  I was kind of disappointed, Daddy should have taken me to Pam's Kitchen a long time ago.
Did I end up eating Roti and Dahlpuri that night?  Of course not, my little palate isn't there yet but I was shown a lot of island hospitality and that is all this little boy really needs! 

Nothing like a whole restaurant staff paying attention to you!

A Rewarding Summer Vacation

I did more than just play this Summer Vacation.  Some kids go to camp, well I couldn't squeeze that in but can they say that they possibly saved a life!

The day in the San Juans started out innocently.  I was doing my chores dutifully keeping the chickens fed but then I noticed something . . . .


 . . . the sheep eating the berries by the fence hadn't moved in nearly twenty minutes!

After I drew some attention to the situation it was evident, the sheep was stuck!


I was a little disappointed in the way Mommy and Daddy handled it, this was an EMERGENCY and they just were busy taking selfies while Papo and his friend Thurston were getting the wire cutters.
I was disappointed that they didn't seem to take the situation as seriously as they should have but regardless, everything ended up alright.
Hopefully that sheep will learn, sometimes blackberries just aren't worth the risk!

Schools Out For Summer!

I was a little curious about this whole "Summer Vacation" thing.  Seems like I have been spending the entire Summer going to pre-school.

Well, turns out Summer Vacation has finally started.  We went to pre-school today only to learn it was closed UNTIL LABOR DAY!

Guess its nothing but fun until September!  This will probably be the only surprise Summer Vacation I will ever have.

Standing-Up For My Property Rights!

As an American Toddler I come from a long heritage of defending property against arbitrary taxation.  Defense of liberty is just something that is in my blood!
Daddy was acting a little too much like King George tonight.  He seems to think that because he pays for my meal at Taco Time he is allotted as many of my Cinnamon Crostos as he wants.

Well tonight I finally held my ground!
Sic Semper Tyrannis!

Living Large at the Fair!

Oh my annual trip to the fair.  Best of all this time I could move around on my own and boy did I take advantage.

Last year there is no way I would have been able to try and win a goldfish or load my very own cannon.
And I certainly wouldn't have been able to walk right up and start talking-up the cute FFA girl!
Yeah, getting older and being able to walk sure has its advantages!

A Pleasant Sand Person!

Today I had an agenda, get into as much SAND as possible.  Generally, Daddy is wary of me getting into this stuff at the park since I always have a way of tracking it home but today he was feeling guilty after working Saturday so he loosened the rules.

I hit up the sand lots at both Magnuson and Gas Works Park, it was great!

Yes, I was truly a Sand Person today, but a lot nicer than the ones Daddy knew of when he was a child!
