strawberry picking

i really can't believe that the last time b or i have gone strawberry picking was when we were wee little tikes.  this was such a super fun time!  there is something so great about getting down into a plant and choosing your own ripe red berry to pop into your both that satisfies all senses.  caleb was just picking strawberries left and right and eating all of them.  he would yell out, "ooh here's a good one!"  and plop it in.  mom came with and even though it was hot and she was sore from her previous day's work, she loved it as well.  annual tradition for us.

 i love that caleb's eyes are closed in this one.

fun with play-doh

being home for the summer is the best perk of my job as a teacher.  i have the best of both worlds, a wonderful career, and being home with my son a lot!  we love playing with play-doh and here are some of our creations.  i was pretty proud of my watermelon making skills.  caleb's favorites are making ice-cream, rockets, and caterpillars.

what are some things you have created with play-doh?

from the first few days of life, and even before that when caleb was growing inside me, brian was an amazing father.  he took to this role instantly and ever most tenderly.  he was always talking about how he couldn't wait for caleb to grow a little bigger so that they can do things together like play ball or go fishing.

this weekend was the first actual time they went fishing.  caleb, as you can see, loved it.  b showed just as much love back to him with his patience in helping him cast his pole and also saving it from accidental drowning as caleb threw it in the pond.

to the most loving father i know.  i know that caleb will experience the kind of love that i never did growing up, and it makes me love b even more.

i love you both!
