Remembering the 80's

The boys are playing with construx this morning. Yes, the construx in the cooler are Eric's from back in the day. The two smaller boxes came in the mail this week. Guess someone wants to relive their childhood. :)

Say What?

I was going to get supper last night on the way home. Riley wanted McD's. So we headed there and the drive thru was backed up to the road. Me, being the impatient type, didn't want to wait. Riley suggested we go to the "other McDonald's." I'm like what? There's not 2 McD's in Olney. I decided to go to BK and pick up supper. Riley informs me that this is the other McD's. Ohhhh I get it now!
He also said today that ice cream is "kind of cold." What will he come up with next?!

Okay, I'm bored this afternoon. I took a few pics of the boys. Here is one of Brody. He's been rolling from his belly to his back. Hasn't figured out how to go back to his belly yet though!
Oh yeah, we are pet-less again.

Four Months

Brody loves his cartoons. He was watching TV this afternoon in his big brother's chair. I'm surprised Brody watches TV. Riley didn't like TV much when he was a baby.
Riley was out building a dog house with Dad this afternoon. We're having a hard time keeping Jack (the dog) at home. Jack keeps wandering off to the neighbors house. Once we get a collar that fits, we ought to be able to keep Jack at home.

Riley's dog

Riley is the proud owner of a dog. He promptly named it Jack. Not sure where that came from, but it's better than calling it dog. (Our cat is named Kitty.) It showed up at a neighbors house a while back. They didn't want to have 2 dogs and asked if we wanted it. Of course, Riley had to have him. So this is Riley and his dog Jack. We'll see how long he sticks around.
