First Day of School

Evelyn started Kindergarten this morning!
First Day of Kindergarten

She had a great day and can't wait to go back. On a "fun" scale from one to ten, Evelyn gave her first day of school a one hundred. We hope this level of enthusiasm lasts for the remaining 179 days.

All on a Tuesday

I took off work on Tuesday for some middle of the week family fun. It started with getting the kids' pictures taken at Target (Evy had a good time), and then we took our lunch to the picnic tables at the Allegheny County airport to watch some airplanes and helicopters.

Watching the Liftoff

Brandon thought he might like to fly in one of the planes, but we weren't allowed to set up a lesson for a two-year-old. Instead we surprised the kids with a trip to Kennywood. Brandon was able to ride the planes in Kiddieland with Evy as the pilot.

Checking Their Six

It was a really fun weekday for everyone. Pictures from our busy Tuesday are on Flickr.

Birthday Boy

Brandon turned two yesterday. He'll tell you that he's six, but trust me, the kid is two.
Happy Birthday Brandon!

He opened presents, tried to play with each of those presents, and then ate cake and ice cream. It was a great way to celebrate.

Brandon's second birthday pictures are on Flickr.
