Guess who was excited when he saw this? You guessed it! Zach! When we left Target yesterday morning, this was parked outside. Zach and I went to see it up close.
He was deep in thought as he stood beside it. I tried to get a picture but....
all I could get was a sideways CHEESE!
How bout another deep in thought shot?
Well...Here's a look at Mom shot! When we got back in the car, he cried. He wanted to ride in the firetruck....

Not feelin' too Well!

Zach hadn't been feeling the best in the world last week. So, I took him to the doctor on Friday really not knowing what was wrong. No fever...No complaints. He had another double ear infection. This time she said it was really bad. She said he must have a high tolerance for pain. Here he is waiting to see his favorite doctor....
Doctor Rao. He loves her so much...and talks about her often.
After going to the doctor, we headed back to school to work. He was a good boy, but he was still Mr. Busybody. He thought he was so funny when he was up on the bookshelf. But yet, he was scared of falling. Silly ole' boy.
He got a prize when we got his medicine refilled.....Another Thomas friend.
Well, I guess I should sign off for the day. We had a great and busy Sunday. We had about 24 kids last night in juniors for another fun night. It seems like Sundays are sooooooooooooooo busy anymore. What happened to the day of rest?

Splish Splash

Marci kept Zach today while I worked at the school. He had a big time playing on the slip and slide.
Lauran helped get Alex started for a fun ride downhill.
Lauran enjoyed her ride down as well.
Zach landed with a great big splash.

What a great pile up! I sure appreciate Marci watching my little guy. I was able to get a little more done.

A New Kitchen!

Zachy loves to cook....and has loved to do so for a while. We've been wanting to get him a McDonald's kitchen. Aunt June brought a Tuesday Morning sale flyer to church a couple of weeks ago showing this cute Elmo kitchen. Zach loved it. So, Joel said that he would get it for him if he potty trained. Joel also told him he'll have to take it away if he needs to. So, if you come over and see the kitchen......Zach must be using the potty..... If not, please pray for us.

Zach is still enjoying his gigantic train track in the middle of the living room. He played with it some more this morning, so I decided to get some more shots. Joel wanted me to be sure to get him some good pictures.
Zachy loves his Cranky the Crane. However, Cranky is sometimes Cranky and comes apart. So Mom gets to come to the rescue.
It sure is fun sitting in the middle of a train yard.
But there are still some important decisions to be made. For example, which train do I still need? I think it's this one.
One thing I know for certain.------- This picture taking while on train duty sure does STINK.

Dad, Zach, and Trains and other things!

Last night, Zach's dad built him a huge train track right in the middle of Mom's living room floor! Yeah! I think it was because he likes trains himself.
"Mom, you can't tear it down....." He enjoyed playing with his motorized Thomas engines early this morning!
My little guy is growing up so quickly. I can't believe that he will soon be 3 years old.
3 years old....Today he answered the phone to hear Nana on the other line. He told her we were going to the Boardwalk. She said she was too. So, we met and had lunch "upstairs" at Sonic. She showed him the Red River right outside the window. Of course, he remembered. "Mom, I want to go see the Red River."
Later, his MaMaw picked him up to spend the afternoon. I was able to enjoy a few hours to myself. Thanks MaMaw! :)

Where are you Zachy?

Zachy likes to go sit on the top shelf of his dad's closet. So, he found this hat still with the sticker on it from juniors. Where are you Zachy?
There you are you silly ole' boy! :)
