Escalators, Rides, & Thai Food!

Life Lesson #394- Do not take a toddler with you when attempting to make decisions about large purchases. We weren't happy about having to replace our 5 year young washer & dryer anyway and add to that an unhappy toddler . . . the options became vasectomy or adoption (as in adopting out a small child, I've heard the blond haired, blue eyed type go for quite a premium).

The salesmen at Sears grew weary if us riding up and down the escalator and trying out every riding lawn mower. I grew weary of Jeremy shooting daggers out of his eyes at Carson and his antics. We spent our fortune and moved on to the indoor play park. Hopefully we got the right set for the right price.

Oaks Park- Fun outing with Grandma & Grandpa Levy to Oaks Park Saturday evening. We couldn't have asked for better weather!! A bit spendy for a dad and a toddler to ride a handful of small rides but priceless for Carson's enjoyment.

Holding on for dear life but letting go long enough to wave at my fans!
So this is what life in the driver's seat feels like!
Look out aliens! I'm coming after you!
My daddy is so fun!
Daddy, are you sure you fit on this ride?
What is this guy hiding behind his sword?
On Sunday we ventured down to Thai Bite 2008 to help Grandma Rader raise money for the Thai monks of Oregon. She voluntarily cooks food for two days straight and we eat as much as we can! Very interesting people watching and once again, beautiful weather!
Way to go Grandma Rader! Now if only we knew how to say grandma in Thai!

This morning I was 15 minutes late dropping Carson off for daycare. Why? Because Carson insisted on sitting on his potty for 15 minutes trying to make poop. In the end we celebrated two toots but walked away empty. I was kind of relieved and disappointed all at the same time.
Carson has WAY more books than most kids his age simply because of the vast number of teacher friends I have. But even with three full baskets, we get a little bored. I just recently started making Monday trips to the library to spice up our reading time. It's been so FUN and Carson is LOVING the variety. Daddy was a bit overwhelmed with the "kit" I brought home yesterday. SEVEN potty books. Doesn't sound like a big deal but when you consider Carson insists on reading each book 3 times in a row, that's a lot of pee pee, wee wee, and poo poo.
