Unfortunately, the fish weren't biting at the pond so we moved a different spot. It was a creek and they fished off the bridge. No sooner had Dean put the hook in the water did they have a fish. Now Ryan liked fishing but he didn't want any part of the actual fish.

I love it! We play together as a family. I play it alone after Ryan has gone to bed. I took it home to Seattle, which prompted JuJu’s family to get one. It is great. I love the fact that even though I have always sucked at video games I can do fairly well at this one, even beat my husband at several games. Plus my three year old can play the games. Nothing is more frustrating then trying to explain to a small child that they just don’t posses the coordination required to play most of these other games. It's not a problem with the Wii.
Here is Ryan playing our newest game, “Mario Kart”
The next game on the list to buy was the "Wii Fit". I have been anxiously awaiting the release date, which was May 21st. (Yesterday) I went to Best Buy on my lunch hour to get it, naively thinking it would be early enough that they should still have a few copies. Negative! I tried 3 other places, no dice! Everyone asked, "did you reserve a copy?" Well, no my husband said there was no need to. Unfortunately, that was a bad call on his part. One place told me it will be two weeks before they have any more. I'm very disappointed. Hopefully I don't have to wait that long. I'll keep you posted.

This morning we hopped in the car and drove for about an hour to see a spectacular air show. We arrived at FedEx field ready to see our military’s finest aviators push the limits of the worlds most advanced aircraft. Well after seeing a line of about 10 people wide stretching across the entire span of the stadium parking lot, we did an about face and headed to towards the next best thing... Our local Apple Store!
We survived a hair-raising drive on the capital beltway, and arrived safely at the mall. After spending a few minutes wandering the enormous exhibit that is the Westfield Mall, Apple Store, we headed toward Fort Detrick to catch some of the thrills that Armed Forces Day had to offer. The minute we entered onto Fort Detrick it was electric. Ryan oohed and aahed at the hellohopters, and then let out some aggression on the moon bounce.
Best part of the day?
Worst part of the day?

One of the reasons I started this blog was so I would have a journal of Ryan’s childhood. Since he is 3 ½, and I’ve just started, obviously I’ve missed a few things. Fortunately, I have several of the bigger moments captured on video. Here is one of those moments.
When I took him to daycare that morning he hadn't even really taken more than a step or two at a time. When I picked him up that day she said "He started walking today". I took this video as soon as I got home that night. It was like he just woke up that day and decided "I think I'm going to walk today". He really had only been crawling for a few weeks, I was really surprised.
neighborhood so he could play on the playground.
As far as playgrounds go it's pretty, well for lack of a
better word....Lame. But, it is close enough to walk to,
so we go there occasionally. He had fun.
I forget just how red his hair is until I see it in pictures.
P.S. Did I mention how much I love plaid shorts?
