Well, now that October is upon us, I suppose I should wrap up the summer blogging.
Darrick celebrated Fourth of July over at the Brokaws. I had to work, so I stayed home with Alexander. Apparently, little Lauren Brokaw kept asking where Alexander was, so next time we'll have to bring him along. Next time we'll have to bring me along.
It looks like they all had a great time.
Although I hope the kids were in bed before the phallic fireworks show started.
Alexander did end up going over to hang out with Lauren. Always the gallant gentleman, he pulled her around in her ride and let her wear his hat.
In fact, it's safe to say that for Alexander, this summer was all about the ladies.
A high point for all of us was Aunt Christine and Uncle Jim's visit. We went to Bookman's, met cousins Tom, Em, and Brenna out at Red Rock, and hung out in our uncomfortable house, basking in the wonders of evaporative cooling in the middle of an unusually humid July.
Alexander got them to model the latest in collapsed tunnel neckwear.
And was rewarded with much tickling and play.
