Did I mention...

...that Taylor turned 5 on August 22nd? Well, he did.And he loves himself some good ol' lemon-jello cake. Just like his daddy.And what little boy doesn't absolutely love Legos? Star Wars Legos, for that matter.He was looking pretty sad riding his old bike with his legs going 100 miles an hour since it was so small. It was about time he got a new one. Good thing his birthday came.
It was weird when he started kindergarten. Like life was going to be totally different since he'd be gone for almost 4 hours every day Monday through Friday. It just seemed more official than pre-school. I wasn't one of those moms that left the first day of school on the edge of hysteria because their "baby is all grown up." In fact, I'm pretty sure that he was gone about 5 seconds before I started thinking of all the things I could do with only 2 kids in tow. But it's still just different. And there are even days when I actually miss him being home...

Two months ago (yes, two months... I'm that behind) we went to the DuPont Corvette car show. Taylor and Erik both loved it. Of course, they'd probably also love a show with a bunch of rusty old cars on cinder blocks. But we'll settle for a Corvette show.

One of the owners asked Taylor if he wanted to "drive" it. He took one look at Erik with his sticky fingers and bag of popcorn while screaming for the box of juice he had just thrown on the ground. Erik didn't get an invite.I love how in these pictures my kids look like I woke them up at five in the morning and forced them to come. I'm still trying to figure out why there were 2 Camaros there. I'm pretty sure it was a Corvette car show.Melanie hates sippy cups and hardly drinks anything from them. But she loves the camelbak bottles.You can really see his "rash" on his cheek in this one:Taylor spent about 15 minutes like this. I think he was tired...
