Our Views

The view from Ben's room...

The view from the family room...

(Plumbing is almost done and electric is being run. Drywall hopefully coming soon.)

We are excited to get closer to waking up to these views everyday.

A "Special Date"

  For over a week Bennett and I planned on letting Holland have a little bonding time with Grandma while we went on a "special date" to...


First on Bennett's agenda was the rides; specifically the "dragon" ride he had been eying from the street for the past week. He kept asking me if Hiccup was going to be there and I think he was a little disappointed at my failure to arrange an appearance.

As much as Bennett loved all the rides, I think his favorite was the helicopters. He kept telling me he wanted to touch the sky and while we were on the ride he had such a look of wonder.

Of course, there had to be cotton candy and cheap carnival prizes.

All in all it was a great "special date."

***Bennett has been referring to it as our special date since I first mentioned us going. I hope he thought it was special.***

Get the Camera

The other morning while I was getting ready I heard Bennett start calling for me to get the camera. Since lately he just wants to play with it I assumed that was the case. Then he started calling for me to get the camera and take a picture, so I decided to go see what the fuss was about. This is what I found:

I guess we need to stop grabbing the camera every time they are next to each other, so he doesn't think they are all Kodak moments!
