On Top Of Spaghetti

So, we had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner last night, and we decided to sing "On Top of Spaghetti" for Evan. We would go through lyric by lyric and he kept asking questions like, "How did it fall of the table?", "Who sneezed?". We went through the song a couple of times like this.

Here is the conversation that followed the song:
Evan: "They don't have a meatball anymore?"
Us: "No, it rolled out the door and into the garden."
Evan began to look slightly concerned.
Evan: "Are they sad they don't have a meatball"?"
By the time he finished the question, his bottom lip was sticking out, and he was looking very concerned.
Us: "Yes, but it's just a song. It's pretend."
By this time, he had the lip going and we could see tears beginning to form in his eyes.
Evan: "Why? Why they don't have a meatball?"

It took a couple of minutes to calm him down and reassure him that no actual meatballs were lost and everyone was happy. Needless to say, we probably won't be singing that song again for a while!

August Fun

We have been having an amazing summer - and here are some of our favorite memories. I don't have any Kings Island pictures though!!

Push pops have been our summer tradition - always shirtless on bath night :)

Soft doggy - the perfect companion anywhere - the library, zoo, at home, where ever!

Chocolate covered bananas - yum!

Chad is back and Evan was helping with car maintenance. (Thanks again Chad - he checked out both our cars):
We've learned to make "silly faces":

Check out those nails - and that cool Mario shirt!

Fishing at Johnny's Toys:

Who doesn't like to play their guitar this way??

1st Putt Putt

For Grandma Ross's birthday, we all went putt-putting. It was Evan's first time, so we weren't sure how he would do. He had a great time and lasted through all 18 holes. (The last few holes he wanted to throw the ball instead of hitting it.) I wish I had a picture - but the only one is trapped in Doug's phone!

School Supplies

Walmart has their school supplies on sale and I couldn't resist picking up a few deals for Evan. Even though he's not in school yet, Evan's been enjoying the colored pencils, notebooks, glue sticks, safety scissors, and markers! We've had a great time doing "art" lately!


Evan had a great time hanging out with his cousin Amber last week - mommy got a break too while they were playing all day!

We had a great visit last weekend with our friends from Michigan. Evan had a great time playing with Bethany - she even taught him some new jumping tricks. He loved baby Madelyn too! Evan wanted to hold her and see her as much as possible. We had a great time as well. :)

Geeky Like Daddy

A week ago, I was spotted some cheap "crocs jewelry" at the store that I thought Evan would get a kick out of. I gave him the choice between a pack with a football and helmet or a laptop and video game controller. What did he pick? Just like daddy..
