Rowan's latest venture is to sell ice-cream out of the back of a van. He likes the van, but didn't sell any ice cream.

A Doe a Deer

No comments:
Rowan has visited this petting zoo twice on this trip. He was able to get up close and personal with this deer that just wanders around and isn't penned in like all the other animals.

Back to the Beach

1 comment:
The tide was out when we visited the beach this time. This gave Rowan a chance to splash in the warm pools of water. All the splashing and sand castle building was exhausting, so Rowan took a nap for about an hour.

Ziplining Hilton Head

No comments:
We discovered this ziplining course while researching online for Hilton Head Island activities. 'Ziplining Hilton Head' opened earlier this year. The course consists of rope bridges, stair towers, tree platforms and 8 zip lines, the last of which is a 900' long double racing zip line. Jen beat me by a small margin on that one. We had a lot of fun and the guides did a great job making everyone feel safe and at ease in the treetops.

Crocodile Hunter

Ok, so it's actually alligators in this part of the world. Rowan spotted an alligator in a pond and wrestled it to shore. Here he is showing off his catch.

Floating Baby

No comments:
Rowan just loves the swimming pool. This one was a little chilly though and took a little time to get into. He had a few shivers and grumbles, but once he was up to his armpits he was as happy as a clam. I think he would have stayed in there all day, but since his toes were like prunes, we thought it best to leave some floating fun for another day.

Beach Boy

No comments:
Rowan got to experience the beach for the first time today. He pushed the sand around with his toes and dabbled his feet in the ocean. He wasn't too comfortable with the waves though. The combination of the noise and the splashing got him a little worried. Maybe by the end of the week we'll get him up on a surf board.

Stroller Test Drive

1 comment:
Rowan has been getting himself ready for his big vacation on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. He has his swimming gear and a hat. He just needed some transportation. His typical stroller is just too big to bring. We needed a more compact umbrella stroller that can be carried around and that we can use in the airports too. After some searching on Craigslist, and some failed attempts with various sellers, we picked up a Maclaren Triumph that is in great shape. We just needed the wee man's seal of approval. I think he likes it.

Bouncing Baby Boy

1 comment:
Even on a Saturday, Rowan is hard at work doing important things while bouncing in his new office - checking his stock portfolio and answering important calls.
This recent purchase was well worth the $20 for a used Jumperoo. If there's one thing that Craigslist is full of, it's used baby stuff. He was hesitant at first, but now that he's figured out that it's his legs that make it bounce, he's happy as a clam.
