The 4th of July

For Canada Day we hung our Canadian flag outside. An exciting celebration isn't it? For the 4th of July, we accompanied the drumline to two parades. This was exciting, although I have seen enough antique tractors, boats and fire trucks to last me a while. It always seems like all of the area towns bring all of their fire trucks to the parade. I always wonder what would happen if there was a fire. I assume the fire department has enough foresight to leave some trucks behind in case of an emergency like that.
Here is my wonderful husband driving the lead vehicle for the first parade. The perks of being the director - you don't have to walk the whole route.
The awesome drumline. They are always very well received and they put on a good show.

After the parades, the students and parents all went their own ways, so we were able to take our time coming home. One of the best burger joints we have ever had is Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries. We really like their burgers a lot and at the start of the summer, I looked up their locations to see if there were any near where we would be traveling this summer. There just happened to be right on the route we were driving for the parades on the 4th, so we stopped in for supper. We got there just as they were closing, but they let us in any way. All of the Five Guys we have been too have supper friendly service and it seem like the people like to work there. It is a great atmosphere. We highly recommend Five Guys to everyone. Even President Obama likes them.

Anyway, Wilbert was feeling adventurous. At Five Guys, they custom make every burger, so you have order the topping that you want on it. So, Wilbert decided to order a big burger (two patties) with everything on it. I mean every single topping you can get on your burger. Since we were the last ones to be served for the day, they had an extra patty on the grill. I didn't want it, so Wilbert took it. His burger ended up being so tall, he could hardly hold it. I didn't think to take a picture of the burger until it was too late, but here is a picture of our order slip.
It was crazy, but Wilbert loved every bite.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
