A roller coaster ride of life? Well, I got thrown in it too, a little earlier (Fall 2007). Last year traveling 7 hours became a much bigger deal because of my health, so being at this BBQ was so much fun (5th grand child! Yeah, you didn't think I was that old, did you?) A good thing about the roller coaster is that you discover and enjoy the good parts!
What do you do when it's a 100 degrees outside?
You'll find some shade and climb trees.
Now Nana says she'd wish she was five again, because she would sit for hours in the tree. These two are my oldest friends.
It looks pretty, but what do I do with THIS?
Hope there's somethin from Elmo in there. Elmo is my pal.
(Nana is the author of this blog)- Nana thinks: too many toys, and we wonder why our kids become too focused on "things"?
O good, Mommy will help me read the cards. But...she also made made go to all the parents to thank them and hug 'em (hurray for this mommy!). I did pretty good...for my second birthday!
A tradition since I was born, mommies bake a special cake for the birthday boy or girl. The grown ups have their own. One bite...bleh, too sweet!
Daddy, why did you dump my hand in the cake? Oh, am I supposed to eat that stuff?
No, not me!
Dad BBQ-ed hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone.
Ewwww dude, bloood!
Hurray for my daddy(on the right), because he just got the news today that he passed his nation-wide EMT test - so now up to the paramedics course.
(EM T's are the first responders who go to the peoples homes, get their vital signs, drive the ambulance to get them to the hospital, etc. In the US it is different than in some other countries - here they have a lot of medical knowledge and disaster-response skills)
