I need a stick

October 30, 2007
The other night we had corn on the cob and some got stuck in your teeth you said “I need a stick” and you meant toothpick. It was really funny. Also, you and I were playing basketball in the backyard and you held up 4 fingers while you were trying to dribble and at first we didn’t know what you were doing. Then we understood you were pretending to be the guard and you were calling the play. You really notice every detail and are just so funny. Saturday night, you, me, Jack and your Mom went to the Brazos Bend state park and we hiked around. It was fun and you guys really enjoyed it.

I won the Mickey 200

October 8, 2007
We just got back from our Disney Cruise. You guys stayed on to go to some of the parks. You had a great time – for some reason you are really enchanted with Chip & Dale now. You had fun meeting the characters and being with your cousins. You are quit the traveler and fall into the routine very quickly. You would say “are we going to the show after dinner”. You said so many funny things I can’t even remember. We went to St. Marten and shopped. Then we stopped at St. Thomas but you, me, your Mom, Nana and Papa took the Ferry to Trunk Bay in St. John. It is one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. We played in the water and the sand. Then on Friday, we went to Castaway Cay in the Bahamas, again we just played in the water and sand. It was a really fun trip. You guys will be home tomorrow – you stayed and went to Universal Studios and got to go to a character dinner where you got to meet Curious George (you call him Monkey George) your Mom said you loved it – Nana had bought you a t-shirt with a monkey to wear. On the cruise, they had the Mickey 200, your Mom made a car out of a potato and a carrot and then it raced the other cars (there were 15). You guys won first place and you got a ribbon which you wore the rest of the trip – you kept saying you won the Piston Cup like in the movie “Cars”. You watched your first PG movie – Game Plan was showing on the ship. It was good and you liked it because it was about football.
