Happy Father's Day....

...and Happy Grandpa's Day from Maeve. My Dad and Lynn came down for the weekend, which worked out perfectly so that I could adequately celebrate Dad. And, how best do you celebrate your Dad? You give him Dad projects.... You want them to feel loved and appreciated right? By the end of the weekend I had a fully assembled AND functioning BBQ, a handheld shower head installed in Maeve's bath, and a fire alarm re-wired and installed... without Dad being electrocuted during the process (it was a near miss...)

Our weekend was full, and Maeve was able to show Grandma and Grandpa all her new tricks. She sure is cute, but also very much a two year old at times. I did get the comment from my Dad, "wow, you're patient"... ha ha.

They witnessed first hand the full-on potty training that Maeve decided to initiate this weekend. Someone is adamantly refusing to wear diapers or even pull-ups now. Ummm... okay. Let's just see how this goes...

Our newest household addition... (the BBQ, to be clear)


Don't smile Maeve...


Maeve showed Grandma and Grandpa her animals at the zoo today...


This photo cracks me up... Maeve likes to pretend to be blind every now and then and wandered away from us playing this game. She walked about 50 feet all the way into the viewing area and managed to bonk her head on the bench because she was still playing blind (unbeknownst to us, btw). She was very upset about this, only to be further agitated when she was having her picture taken by Grandpa.... somehow she knew we were laughing at her, and not with her. Poor thing...


And, in position for stories from our latest visitors...

Love you Dad!!
