There's No Place Like Home

Not exactly room for a couch or a big screen TV inside here. Ty worked with some other kids and created this cool little fort also at the museum for children.

It managed to stay up for a few minutes and then was destroyed to make way for something new, much like the current building strategies in this country. Ah, how art imitates life.

Skeleton Rider

We made an encore trip to the Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk during our first few days in CT with Gram and G-pop. Ty spotted this interesting display that featured a skeleton who pedaled along with you as you rode the bike. Kind of like those futuristic x-ray scanners we've scene in old sci-fi movies.

Ray Ray What Do You Say?

Miss us? Sorry for the extended time between posts but in the real world Ty and Dad went off on another trip this past week so we have not been able to finish up the posts from SC.

So here sits Ty in the shadow of a giant ray while trying to keep cool in the heat of Myrtle Beach. This is outside the Ripley's Aquarium at the very popular Broadway at the Beach. Ty enjoyed wandering in and out of the stores and was especially happy when we found a whole setup of inflatables that he could jump around in.

Our summer adventures continue with the next posts featuring our trip to the Big Apple.

Slip Sliding Away

One of Ty's favorite features of the resort we stayed at was this two story water slide. Often the line was backed up with about 20 kids, but a few times he actually had the slide to himself. Dad wasn't able to get a good action shot because I was always in the pool at the bottom catching Ty as he came shooting out.

Everybody's All American

Here's a flashback photo to celebrate the 4th of July today. What's more American than a cute baby in a flag shirt holding a great symbol of innovation (the TV remote) with a great game in the background (pinball) which also depicts one of the greatest animated families of all time (The Simpsons).

You may have differing opinions on the remote, pinball and cartoon, but you hopefully find no disagreement with our blog's star. Happy and safe 4th of July everyone.
