Brian teaches Charlie how to play football!!!

Well, someone had to.  They ran this trick-play about 30 times that evening.  Eventually, Charlie was really on it :)

Visiting with Grandmother

On our Cali trip, we had a nice time visiting with Charlie's great grandma, who we call grandmother. We went to the park, ate at the hippy restaurant, and hung out in my parents backyard.

Grammy Susie's birthday!

We celebrated Grammy Susie's birthday in Sacramento. We went to a local brewpub for lunch, and then had a party that night at their house. Charlie celebrated by throwing up all night. I think he picked up a little virus on the plane.

Birthday party night. Before the barfing. Charlie is wearing his party shirt!

Brew pub with the family!

Charlie and I went swimming with some of our friends. Another mom snapped these pictures before we went in. This little surfer boy is so cool! And he always likes to stick his belly out to show it off!

Mother's Day picnic

We had a lovely picnic with my family. It was a beautiful day, so we played at the park all afternoon. 4 generations in one place, with 3 generations of moms. Happy Mother's Day to you all!

Walking Bernie

Charlie walking Bernie, my Mom and Dads dog. Bernie was walking around the park off the leash and Charlie picked up the leash and tried taking her for a walk, super cute!

So he gave up, and starting trying to take his Grammy for a walk.

Charlie the stunt driver!

Charlie has recently gotten really into special effects, and movies with super loud explosions!  OK.  That's not true. But he does love doing stunts on his toy car!!  Check this out:

Charlie Loves the Swing

This is the last in the "Charlie Loves..." series of video posts!  Bre and Charlie just landed in Cali, and are doing great... but poor Petey is home alone!  What am I going to do?  I'll be lonely for a little while...

In any case, Charlie has a new favorite game, when he's on the swing, I get close to him until the last second, then slide away.  He likes it, I think.

Charlie Loves Puddles!!!

Charlie loves, like, loves puddles. He loves to splash in them.  His mommy got him these awesome blue rainboots, and now he loves to take turns running through the puddles with daddy!  This was a special day since even though we played in puddles for probably an hour, he never fell in!

Charlie Loves the Blower

I was using our electric blower to clean off the porch, and I thought Charlie would be terrified of it... NOPE!
