Ahhh...the 3 Year Old

Ethan has become a little questioner lately. He wants to know everything about everything. I'm constantly worn out trying to come up with answers to his millions of questions.
Last night, Jen, Casey and sweet Adley came over for a cookout. Jen was sitting on the couch holding little Adley (who is almost 1 month old! wow!) and here's the conversation that followed...
ET: Hey whose belly did that baby come out of?
Jen: She came out of my belly. Remember when it was big like your momma's?
ET: Well how did she come out of your belly? Did she just break out or somesing?
Me: Laughing along with everyone else...She came out very carefully.
I can't remember the rest of the conversation due to laughing hysterically. He had the funniest expression when he asked if she 'broke out'. It was so funny. I wish I could put a video camera on him 24/7. Silly boy.
Here's another totally random Ethan story that I need to document so I can remember it. Our church had VBS this week and the theme was Joshua. On the last day, Ethan and his little partner in crime, David, apparently got a time out for knocking down the walls of Jericho. That's what I call interpreting the scripture a little too literally. Come on though...boys + lots of blocks piled high = trouble.
I love our little 3 year old.

Helmet Head

Mimi sent me these pictures a few days ago. I'm pretty sure that was uncle Casey's old motorcycle helmet. Such a goofball...

I just love this kids choice of clothing. That's his pajama shirt with underwear and Darth Vader socks. So trendy.

Ada Air Expo 09

Well...we're back from yet another summer trip. This past weekend, we went down to Ada for the annual airshow. It just gets better and better every year. Ethan LOVED it this year! He was super excited to see all the planes. He's been every year since 2006. If you want to see pics from last year, go here. Here is just a small sampling of the events this year. It was a great show!

I just LOVE this little boy!

Ethan wanted to fly in an airplane soooo bad. And when your papa is the air boss, you get your way. Except ET didn't actually fly. We told him he had to be 4. Hope he doesn't remember that next year!

Ethan and Zann with Zann's uncle Jeff, his dad's brother.

Amy will LOVE this!

One of my favorite things at the air show is the race. Each year they have a corvette race an airplane. You know the airplane is going to win but it's still fun to watch and always a crowd favorite. This year is was a Porsche, or Porch as Ethan calls it. See the little black blob in the far upper right corner? That's the Porsche. It broke 100 mph but didn't come close to winning. Super cool!

Zann did get a ride in an airplane. He got to ride in one of the acrobatic planes and had a blast. This was right before take off.

And who doesn't like watermelon on a hot day? We were out at the Ada airport from 9 am - 5 pm on Saturday (under a huge tent) and the watermelon hit the spot! Not to mention all the snocones we had as well. The Ada Air Expo happens every year on Father's Day weekend. It's a super fun family friendly activity so come join us next year! I promise I'll share my tent if you get too hot!

Houston - Part 2

If you read my previous post, you know that we were in Houston last weekend. My cousin got married on Friday night and Saturday we headed over to my in-laws for a few days. Ethan ended up getting sick early Sunday morning (throwing up at 3 am every 30 minutes til around fun). Pam and I managed to get in a shopping trip to the Galleria on Sunday but Ikea would have to wait. Monday we squeezed in an outlet mall and Ikea. I was plum exhausted after all that walking! My feet hurt soooo bad. But I had fun! I didn't take many pictures at my in-laws. I guess I thought Zann did. Oh well. Enjoy these of Ethan playing in the sprinkler.

I'm finishing up the most awesomest Father's Day present ever! I'll post pics later. Zann reads the blog occasionally and I'd hate to ruin the surprise! Hope everyone has a fun weekend! I know we will!

Fun In Houston

Wow what a weekend! My cousin, Natalie, got married this past weekend in Houston. It was outside at an old plantation house and was just beautiful. Natalie was such a beautiful bride and everything was just wonderful. We got to visit with family a little and that's always fun.

Ethan with his great grandma Norma.
I guess nana had to help him climb the tree. Sorry about Ethan in his underwear. The kid does not like to wear pants!
Zann and Ethan went swimming at aunt Betty's before the wedding. Ethan had so much fun!
Me and my sister with our grandma Norma.
Amy, mom, me...duh!
My cousin, R.E., who I haven't seen in about 3 years. We're only 11 months apart (I'm older).
Amy and Courtney, the maid of honor.
Me and my sister with the beautiful bride. Aren't we patriotic!

My mom made this locket of my grandpa, who passed away 3 years ago. It was Natalie's something blue. My tiara from my wedding was her something borrowed!
Natalie's dress was absolutely stunning! The pictures don't even do it justice.
Ethan did great at the wedding. He did get a little cranky when the bride and groom were leaving at 10 pm but I was a little cranky by then too. We got a good visit in with my dad's side of the family (we all stayed up til midnight or 1 am just talking!) then we headed to mimi and pepaw's for a few days. Those pictures will have to wait for another entry though. I took 391 pictures just from our trip to grandma Norma's. I have no idea how many more new ones are on my camera waiting...

Picture Overload

Warning: This post has a TON of pictures! We've had a very eventful week. We became an aunt, uncle and cousin and visited our new niece/cousin as much as we could.
I was well enough to hold my niece! It's not a very flattering picture of me but oh well. I was so excited to hold her! Ethan...not so much.

We went to some garage sales on Saturday and Ethan got a new scooter. He saw it before I did and jumped right on it and took off. Best $5 I've spent in a while! I love all of Ethan's faces and my new camera can actually capture them!

Today we started swimming lessons! My kid is definitely going to be a handful. He has so much energy. The other 3 year old kids sat nicely while they waited their turn...until my 3 year old started kicking and acting up, then the rest followed. Not cool, Ethan, not cool. We're going to work on that before the next lesson. Well it's nap time around our house. I have a ton on my to do list and hopefully I'll get to it. I do have the Bachelorette on the DVR and a couple of Netflix movies though. Hmmm....decisions, decisions.
