Where is the ?

No comments:
Rowan spent a fun filled hour or so at his favorite store, Cabela's (Home Depot comes in a close second). Most of the time was spent pointing at things and saying their names for all to hear. Here, Rowan is showing me where the tractor is.
What about the elephant? Where is he?
And the Moose? Can you see any?
What about two bears fighting over a dead deer?
In the future Rowan, if you do see a bear in the woods, don't wave and say 'Hi teddy'.
Rowan did manage to capture a baby bear that he wanted to bring home. Unfortunately, we had to leave the bear behind, but Rowan didn't mind too much, as he said, 'bye bye bear'.

Hello? Is This Thing On?

Forgive me, interwebs, for I have sinned.  It has been 3.5 months since my last blog entry.  I'm not sure why, really.  Laziness, procrastination, lack of quality sleep, inertia?  I will try to be better about that.  In the meantime, here is a little snippet of what's been going on at our house.  Rowan got a new potty at Christmas and while he has not actually done any of his own business on it yet, he does like to put all his teddies on there and announce what they're up to.  Rowan thought Monkey might like to hear a little story while attending to his business.  I was glad to see I'm not the only one who gets interrupted on the potty.  There is no such thing as peace or privacy anymore in this house!  :)

A Pirate's Life For Me

No comments:
Rowan's first trick or treating. He got some candy, but was more interested in picking up rocks and putting them in his bucket.

Westport Kiwanis Triathlon

1 comment:
Jen has been training hard over the last few weeks and months to participate in her first triathlon. A couple of weeks ago she successfully completed the Westport Kiwanis Triathlon, and had fun doing it. It was a very cold morning when we headed off before sunrise. Jen was glad to have her wetsuit for the swim.

Naugy River Race 2013

The annual Naugatuck River Race happened back in May.  Last year Rodney took part and Rowan and I spectated.  Rowan was only 3 months old at the time and I was just getting back to being able to walk again, let alone kayak 6 miles.  This year, though, I wanted to get back on the water.  We had no babysitter so Daddy didn't take part but he did bring Rowan along to watch the action.  The water level was really low after an unusually dry spell so there were a few places where you had to get out and walk your boat along to deeper water.  Despite the low water, it was a fun day although I was quite sore by the end of the 6 mile course.  I hadn't been in a kayak for probably a couple of years so my goal was just not to finish last!
Maybe next year, Rowan.
Some people take this race very seriously.
There be pirates on these seas.
Coming under a bridge around the halfway point... arms feeling ready to fall off.
Nothing like a wee stroll along the river bed to cool you down on a hot day.
At the end of the race there's a street festival with live music and food and stuff but we skipped all that because we had friends coming over.  When the results were finally posted a couple of weeks later, it turned out I won a bronze medal!
