We went to the farmer's market on Sunday. We saw a lady walking five golden retrievers. She couldn't get two feet without someone stopping her to talk about why she has five dogs. We bought this yummy sweet cheese pocket for Diego then walked over to the square and hung out by the fountain. Diego loves the fountain. It was built the year I was born. That's not why he loves it. Then we walked over to Graters and got some ice cream. Watermelon sorbet for Diego. He loved it. He kept pointing at all the posters of sundaes decorating the walls. We got him thoroughly sugared up and bad tempered then drove up to Mason to the Once Upon A Child second hand store to look for a tricycle. We got a wagon instead. Today, I took him out in the wagon in the rain and he carried my adult sized giant umbrella while I walked in the rain pulling him. It was fun. So cute the way he clutched that umbrella. I should have gotten a picture but I didn't. The umbrella is mostly clear and forms a tight cup over your head so it was perfect for the wagon ride. He could see right through it. But I did get this picture of him watching the rain with his banana this morning.

Yesterday, Deb and I met with the boys at Jo's. We all hung out and watched the boys play. It was nice. I didn't get any pictures of that either! Cuz my camera battery died. BOOO! I did get this one upon arrival. Diego went straight to collecting pine cones.

Thank You

Last night, Diego said, "Thank you." Jason got him a cup of milk and while he was walking away holding the cup, Diego said, "Thank you."

Very exciting!

It sounded like he was saying, thank you, while we were in WV but it wasn't nearly as clear as this.

Road Trip

We took a road trip to WV to visit with Diego's Great Grandparents and his Grandad. Aunt Debbie and Cousin Dustin came along. The road trip part went better than I expected. You just never know what you are in for when traveling with little babies and toddlers.

The visit was really great. Diego rode the tractor with Great Grandad. He played soccer with his Grandad. We ate good food and just had a really relaxing time. Diego thoroughly enjoyed munching raspberries off the bushes as fast as we could pick them.

Jason said his language developed tremendously in just the three days we were gone. I didn't really notice that myself.

His most common sentences are "OH NO!" and "I peepee." and "I need." He is also very fixated on things that are or could be hot.

Forgot my camera!

Jason and I went down to Kentucky with Diego to visit with Katherine and Laura at their father's place in Owenton. He has a lake house and a little boat. It was so much fun. We took Diego out on the lake in the boat and he was just itching to go overboard. We had to keep a good hold on him because he really did keep trying to get in.

When we finished the boat trip, we put on our suits and got in the water. Diego was so gleeful. I put him in the little ladybug floaty seat I got for him in San Diego. After awhile though he wanted out of that seat! It was too bad because I wasn't strong enough to swim with him without that seat. The water was so deep I couldn't touch the bottom and there was no way I could let him in without some kind of life preserver. We have a life jacket for him but I forgot it at home along with my camera! I am gonna beg some pictures off Laura so maybe they will show up here someday.

It was so much fun! Thanks RON!
