Digger park (PDK)
Everyone has their favorite playground, ours is the Peachtree-Dekalb municipal airport (PDK) in Atlanta, Ga. Not only is it placed just feet from the active runway, it is entirely surfaces in shredded rubber tires (that are loose), which makes it the perfect place for digging!
..and it doesn’t hurt when sometimes you show up to play and a B-29 is parked at your playground!
“Hapyy Birthday Late”
Found this at a flea market and how could I not buy it?
I only wish Ross was my friend.. and why the hell would Lambo ever sell this?
I love the boy, not the mask..
This weekend I overheard my wife say:
”..and after she told me that first story, I knew she was crazy and I moved on”. -H. Starnes
I’m finding this to be more and more true all the time.
..Posting on FB that you are having a “home birth” and then the next day that it’s gone horribly wrong resulting in a ambulance ride and hospital stay puts in in the above category* for me.
*(also not vaccinating your kid AND/OR handing them a loaded rifle if they are 4 years old inside your house around their 2 year old sibling)
This year my son is finally old enough to fly his own kite, which is really special for me since I’m such a kite nerd. I got him a simple foil kite that turned out to be a complete piece of junk, luckily the local souvenir shop had a few cheapy kites and one of them was silver with a star which made my son yell out “Tumbderbolt kite”. A reference to this P-47 Thunderbolt model that we got at the US Air Force museum.
He didn’t spend much time watching the kite, he just liked holding the handle and running with it. I tactic that get really tricky when we tried to fly our kites together. It became a game of tag while flying kites and making sure that they didn’t get tangled.. which mostly worked.
Next year I will make sure to test fly his kite well in advance of our trip, and maybe he will be ready for a stunt kite?
Low Counrty Broil
While on vacation we got some AMAZING local jumbo shrimp which inspired me to make a low country broil.. a first for my son, who loved it!
It’s funny to me that I’ve tried to get him to eat shrimp several times in other dishes and he has always tuned his nose up at them. But when I serve them straight up with no sauces to cover them he dives right in.
Lesson learned, serve the kid fresh, local food that is simply prepared and he is all over it!
Wish you were here..
(You. Not you over there)
Because everyday is a pizza party!!
