Harrison is becoming quiet the poser lately.
He loves to look at himself on the iPhone and take photos, this is just a few of my cheeky chappy :)

Super cheese.

Harrison is really into super heroes right now- well as much as an almost 3 year old can be. Today he was eating a Mini BabyBel cheese, there little circles. He made this shape and announced "it's batman!!!"
I had no idea he even new who batman was!

A visit from uncle Gary, Charity and Mattais

We had a great last minute visit from Uncle Gary, Charity and Mattais recently. It was so much fun to see them, and they got to meet Allister for the first time!

We were not lucky with the weather, Ohio has been experiencing record rainfalls of late, floods and very bad weather. But we did manage to do some fun things and enjoy the one sunny day we had at the Zoo!

The only photo I have of Uncle Gary!

The boys had a lot of fun together, when Harrison wasn't playing the younger annoying cousin :)



Aunt Charity looking cute in her bangs!




We went to Dayton to the awesome air force museum. This time we started at the back with the rockets, because we’ve never made it that far before!

Another visit!

We were so lucky to have a visit from Great Great Uncle Jim recently!
The boys had so much fun with him, and Harrison especially was loving the attention.

As you can see everyone had a blast!
Thanks for coming Uncle Jim, we love you!

Allister playing jumping off the fire place, he sees Harrison do his thing, and thinks he can do it too! He jumped on Guinness over and over, and Guinness just laid there ignoring him.


Harrison has been learning to do real puzzles and is so proud of himself when he does a good job! He needs a little help, but he does great :)

Its been too long…..

Its been way too long since I posted a proper blog! So long in fact I don't know where to begin with all the catching up. So forgive me if this the next few posts are all jumbled!

We recently went to Cleveland so Matt could run the Marathon there. He’s been training pretty hard, and running with the Columbus Running Company, so he was hoping for a personal best.

Here they are at the start.

Waiting for the off!

The national anthem, I have no idea who the lady was who sung it but it was pretty awesome!

Harrison was in awe!

There they go :)

Daddy’s biggest fans.

I have no photos of the finish. We had some trouble getting to the right spot to watch Matt come in, so we ended up at the 25 mile mark and missed him over the finish line. We, of course, couldn't make it back on foot before him!

The marathon itself was definitely not the most scenic, and Cleveland itself is not a city we fell in love with!

The medal was awesome!

He came in at 2:44:21 and 15th (I believe) over all. Crazy good uh!

After the Marathon we went to the Natural History Museum, which was a lot of fun.

Harrison was scared of the dinosaurs!

We had a great weekend, and we are all very proud of Daddy Matt!

Harrison made a car from sticklebacks this morning. He had zero help, I think it was such a good car! This is the first time he has been so creative all by himself!

Slide boy.

Saturday morning....

Jammies and cartoons.
Remember that?
For me it was Sport Billy, No. 73, The Smurfs, Wattoo Wattoo, and Renta Ghost! What child hood favorites did you watch on a Saturday morning?
