Operation "Playdate"

Me and my Cousin Miles had MAJOR fun at his house yesterday! We jumped on the bed and laughed ourselves silly; watched the roller skates tumble down the steps; rolled the ambulance down the sliding board in the playroom; ate pizza, popsicles, and Rice Krispie Treats; and danced, hugged, and sang! We had a great time and our Mommies enjoyed their time together too! Aren't cousins the best thing ever?

A Celebration Postponed!

You may know by now that my Little Sister Sophia turned 1 year old last Saturday, but we had to postpone her celebration. Well, we finally got a chance to celebrate that milestone with her today and she really enjoyed it. She also started walking a short time before her actual birthday, which made the celebration today even better. She walked around the house so much today that she actually got tired and fell asleep. We had to wake her up to sing the "Happy Birthday" song, and me and Daddy helped her blow out the candles on her "Princess and the Frog" birthday cake. As you will see from the pics that Grammy took, she really enjoyed her cake too!

Getcha "Fling" On...

Belmont Plateau in Fairmount Park

Yesterday, the weather was so nice that we decided to go to the park for a little fun after everybody got home from day care, school, and work. Mommy decided to take her camera along so she could get some "spring fling" pics for her Facebook page. We even took "Hamlet" with us so he could run and play too. Of course, Grammy went over to FB and committed "grand theft photo" again so she could post the pics on my blog. But, that's okay... the important thing is, we had a really great time together in the park!

Update 05/08/10

My Grammy and Pop-Pop took me to the "National Train Day" celebration here in Philly and we had a great time. There were lots of people and plenty of neat things to see and do at the train station. And, of course, no celebration of trains would be complete without some Thomas & Friends stuff! I even got a chance to ride on the El train again today. As an extra special treat, we ran into my Great Aunt Ronnie and my Cousins Trylanna, Early, and Aaron. My Cousin Early sings in the Philadelphia Boys Choir and they performed during the celebration. Here are some of the pics that Grammy took while we were there!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
