now this one, he knows exactly what is to be done before he starts. and when he starts,
i can always tell it is here, summer that is, when i start hitting watermelons in the produce department. i really think it is just luck whether you get a sweet candy like melon or not. but i always look through the bin abusing each melon i pick up. i hit it and listen to the different sounds i can make, quite like a child. what am i listening for? perhaps a juicy whisper stating it is a sweet and delectable bite? what i hear every time is a hollow slap, which in watermelon language probably means stop hitting me! so far this season i have had decent luck with the melon, have you?
jules over at meandhome.blogspot.com has a challenge to find faces. here is mine :) . it is always fun to slow down and take stock of what is actually around you. i am usually pleasantly surprised at what i discover. happy face hunting and check out her adorable blog.

he is incredible. this day was all fun for his sister. she flew, watched a movie, ate like a rock star and had great fun. we waited until she was done. he did not complain once. he has wanted to fly since he could first walk, 9 months old. but didn't ask once to fly. he let his sister have a wonderful day, for her. and he was happy about it. we even went to a candy store where he didn't ask for anything! what 5 year old doesn't ask for candy? of course we got him a big old bag of cotton candy.
