"Joshua's First Haircut!" It was getting to be "mullet-esque" so we got out the scissors! He is 16 1/2 months old.

Joshua wasn't sure what to think about this whole operation!

Joshua was NOT wanting to hold still -- so I worked fast and didn't worry about perfectionism!

Yep -- we used tape to keep him entertained while I worked as fast as I could!

This past weekend, we drove to Indy where we met up with Mom and Dad. We lucked out and the weather was great so we spent several hours at a park. Steve and Freya joined us a little later (with Max!), we had a meal together, and then everyone split. We went east, Mom and Dad went west, and Steve and Freya went north! It's a bummer being so far from family, but we just make the best of it! We had a great couple of hours together!

Joshua was captivated by this tube-thing on the playground.

Joshua and Grandma at the restaurant before everyone split up and went their separate ways. Joshua is 16 1/2 months.

Steve and Freya also drove down and so we got to see Max -- 6 months old already! Steve was scheduled for a hair cut the next day!!!! Just kidding :)

"I think I can . . . I think I can!"

Grandpa and Joshua going down the tube slide. Joshua LOVED the slides!

Grandma and Joshua on the teeter-totter.

"I just wish I could play with the big kids!"

Go, Grandma!

Guess who?

Joshua playing with two of the neighbor boys next door -- Preston and Grant. They always have a TON of balls in the yard -- hence, Joshua LOVES playing in their yard with them! Joshua's current fascination is any kind of ball -- or anything that remotely resembles a ball!

The "first grilling" of the season!

"Daddy -- I'm ready to remodel!!!" Note -- this was NOT a posed picture -- Joshua is always into something!

OK -- we're getting to the last of the kitchen remodel pics -- I promise! Bryan installing the floor.

The finished floor.

This is where the desk will eventually go.

Doesn't look much like a little baby any more, does he?

Who knew that Joshua was into making modern art . . .or maybe he's just a little boy who has absolutely DESTROYED the mini blinds in his room! We'll have to come up with Plan B.

Looking out the kitchen windows -- beucase our neighbors have a bird feeder, Joshua gets to see lots of squirrels and birds when we eat!

Other views . . .

The latest of the kitchen remodel project . . . Bryan painted it yesterday (just the walls, not the trim/windows). Last weekend, we borrowed (thank you John and Dave) a power miter (sp?) saw and air gun to to the trim on top of the cabinets.

Daddy's speciality . . .up close pictures!

Uh . . . not sure what this pose is . . .!

Joshua has NO fear of wandering around aimlessly with the blanket over his head -- silly boy!

Showin' off those teeth again! Three of the four molars have now popped through.

. . . make a tent with his blankie! . . . (wow -- what a bundle of energy!)

One of our favorite games to play . . . "101 things to do with Joshua's blankie!" . . . make a hat!
