Super cool park

We went to go hang out at a big kid park. Charlie got to climb on some weird stuff, even a weird UFO looking thing!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are at the beach this thanksgiving. It's been amazing!! No turkey, but the weather has been perfect. We've been playing in the sand and putting our feet in the water, and hanging out in the heated pool. We spent a day at the aquarium too. A lovely long weekend!

Duke Gardens

We spent a day playing at Duke gardens. They sell special duck food at the gift shop, so we got to feed the ducks! And a heron (I think that's what it is, but I'm not sure) landed right next to Charlie and looked at him for a long time. She had probably never seen such a handsome kid before!





He looks like an angry teacher here.



OK.  One more video.  So last week, Bre was out - visiting Nana and Gaga in Sacramento.  But does that slow me and Charlie down?  NO!  Charlie and I had a lot of fun at the park, and I got some good belly laughs out of him on the swing - check it out.

Fun rides!

Charlie and I went to a park in Raleigh that has a train and a carousel! Two of Charlie's favorite things!

Might as well JUMP!

Charlie has become obsessed with jumping. He does it non-stop, wherever we go. Often he will climb up on structures that are waaaay too big, and boom, just jump right off.  Here he is leaping off a drum at Notasium - the drum is like 3/4ths of his height!  He's crazy.

A Leisurely Stroll

Charlie and I love to go to the museum on our Friday afternoons.  Everytime we go, he does something a little different.  Friday, Charlie wanted to walk around like a big kid, and I thought it was super cute.

Watch for the other little kid to walk by around the 0:30 mark, doing a funny walk, and then watch Charlie start to do his own little funny walk.  So cute!

This kid is happiest on a playground. And even better if there is an older woman to play with him! This girl and Charlie must have gone down this slide together at least 10 times- holding hands! <3

And make music!

And rock out!

Bella and the sprinkler!

Charlie and Bella love playing with the sprinkler. Bella is Krsiten's dog, and Charlie is her favorite human!

The tree fell down

We lost power a few days ago, because a big tree fell down on the street. But I'll let Charlie tell you the story!

Charlie feeding the goats

We went to a lovely little garden store/farm this week. The nice lady there gave Charlie some treats for the goats. He made lots of friends. Here he is feeding the goats.



And checking out the alpacas!

Charlie got another haircut today. For your viewing pleasure, before and after pictures! Kristen did a great job, and Charlie was an excellent patient!

Happy Halloween!

Charlie dressed up as a cool surfer guy, Pete and I were lifeguards and wiki was a shark. We had a great time at our neighborhood block party. It was super fun! Charlie didn't trick or treat, but he did end up with a lot of candy. Hopefully, I will get some good pictures from the photographer in a couple of weeks. But for now.... Happy Halloween!
