Fun and Games!

We love playing games! Damon has been really into them lately. Here are a few pictures from just the last couple of days. We also frequently play Life, Monopoly Jr., Uno Attack, and Memeory.
Does anybody remember Splat? This is a second-hand game from a long time ago. All it needed was some new Play-Doh and some Dice. We also had to make a slight variation since the cards are missing. No problem, we got it figured out, and have lots of fun! Who doesn't love making little bugs out of Play-Doh and then smashing each other with a big hand that says "Splat"?

"Cootie," another classic from my childhood. They made a few updates, but it is still the same old game. And, this one is still on the shelfs.

Any other fun games that can be enjoyed by kids as well as their parents? Let us know!

Crazy Hair Night!

Lori and I are in a group of girls who meet once a month to play games. We had a crazy hair theme last night at our house and Damon really wanted to be involved. He wanted lots of big spikes all over and I think his hair turned out the best in the end. It was a lot of fun!

Spiderman Does Yoga?

At our house he does.

A couple of weeks ago Damon asked for a Poweraid. I reminded him they were for after working out. So, he ran to his room, put on his Spiderman suit (which is getting very ragged), and told me he would be downstairs on my mat. When I checked on him a few min. later this is what I found. I only wish I had gotten some more good pictures before he saw me.

Damon was so cute doing his yoga. I just love that he rolled out the mat, found some poses, and tried them out all by himself!

I know fall is coming.

The pear tree is about to fall over from the weight of all the fruit and,

Damon had his first soccor practice today.

I love this time of year!
