Fighting Fires

Fighting Fires
Lil! Man here. Fighting fires… yes, I did this today and it was awesome.  I volunteered at the local fire station. In the end, the alarm never sounded.  Flames know not to start with me. Fortunately, there were plenty of cookies and a bounce house to keep me occupied. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-70-5405-1").nggSlideshow( {id: 70,fx:"fade",width:600,height:450,domain:... 

Daddy Days: Zoo Day

Daddy Days: Zoo Day
I went to the zoo for the first time today. Dad says he’s unsure over how he feels about all these animals so far from their native environments being forced to live in a zoo. I think what he means is that he is unsure about whether this is awesome or friggin’ awesome. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-59-5328-2").nggSlideshow( {id: 59,fx:"fade",width:600,height:450,domain:... 

Roller-Skating

Roller-Skating
Lil’ Man here. Today I found out that you can strap wheels to your feet. It is called roller-skating. I have a couple thoughts. First, this is friggin’ awesome! Second, I have to wonder what other awesome stuff mom and dad are holding out on. I mean, I’ve been around for almost two years and only now I’m learning about roller-skating? What other wonderful things are they keeping... 

Tapia Bros Pumpkin Patch

Tapia Bros Pumpkin Patch
Lil’ Man here. Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch at the Tapia Bros farm stand. Dad and I go here quite a bit to visit the animals and pick up some veggies. But (whoa!) do they have some stuff going on for Halloween! There were more animals than usual. A bouncey, which my readers know I dig. And, for some reason, this giant shoe! There is a circus animal cage train car where we had seat and... 

Lil’ Man Turns Toddler

Lil' Man Turns Toddler
Lil’ Man here. I’m learning new words everyday and, whether I understand stuff or not, I’ve acquired a pretty good knack for repeating things.  Case in point: I’m not sure what the words “cloying” or “sappy” mean, but I’m pretty  I’m using them anyway to describe this awesome video my dad made to mark my growth from baby to toddler over... 

Daddy Days: Drum Circles, Model Airplanes, Ballet Folklorico Ollin and a Garden Concert

Daddy Days: Drum Circles, Model Airplanes, Ballet Folklorico Ollin and a Garden Concert
Lil’ Man here. Today was a Daddy Day and we had quite a lot of fun.  We woke with a drum circle.  Checked out some model airplanes.  And checked out two live shows.  Frequent readers know that these days are always pretty packed with new places and exciting events, so you really need to pay attention and do your best to keep up. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery("#ngg-slideshow-52-5089-4").nggSlideshow(... 

Daddy Days: Chasing Chickens, Taming Dragons and Letting Uncle Mike Wild

Daddy Days: Chasing Chickens, Taming Dragons and Letting Uncle Mike Wild
Lil’ Man Here: Another Daddy Day! These are days that you cannot easily predict and that work best, and safest, if you just trust Daddy’s agenda. Because Daddy has a master plan (its more precisely a flow) — a pirates map that leads each week to different treasure trove of fun. So I kick back, listen to a few little monkeys jumping on their bed and ready myself for a Daddy Day. You...

Daddy Days: The Most Fun Part of the Day

Daddy Days: The Most Fun Part of the Day
Lil’ Man here. The fun parts of exploring all the places Dada and I go are surprisingly varied, and only one, but the most important of them, does not involve any particular place. Above all, the greatest fun we have in exploring the city is the fun we have doing it together. This is such an elementary thing that we seldom think about it. Today we took a bit of a hike to a neighborhood museum,...
