Birthday - Yes... a little late

Here are some photos from Silas' 2nd birthday.  Yes, I am late to post these!

 All the decorations are setup.

Time for some candles.

And some confetti.

And cake!

And silly-string... Oh, he didn't like that part,

And toys.

Thank you God for two great years with Silas.

Recycle Truck

Silas likes nothing more than to ride around on recycle day watching the trucks.  So, today we went for a ride...

Here is a short video

Aunt Linda teaching Silas piano.

I think she is a bit surprised at how good he is doing.

Now Silas is explaining a few things to Aunt Linda.

How cute.

Never enough photos of a messy eater!


When we went to visit Linda in Abilene Texas, we came across this nice playground.
Here are a few photos of him going down the slide

I love the laugh.

Momma decided to show Silas what it was like to get sprayed with a water hose.
Silas, wait right here.

What am I waiting for mum?

 You'll see!!!

Wow! Rain!

Are you going to get me again?

Do you want me to?
Yes please.

I think he likes it.

I'm not sure which is worse; spraying our child with water or taking pictures...

To round out the musical instruments for Silas, we must add the Didjeridu.

They start so young now on computers.

I'm glad he can only order photos and not erase all my files.

Silas found one of my Bibles on the sofa.

It was great to see his interest.

Wow, he is already starting to read it!

Cover to cover...

Oh wait... now he is trying to eat it.  Oh well.

Perhaps drums will be more appropriate for Silas.

He has a natural inclination.

He really gets into it.

There was a nice piano at Costco.  Silas took a liking to it.

 Love that smile.

Piano man...

Yes, another funny moment watching Silas eat...

He likes a big spoon.  It allows him to make a mess faster.

Look mom, see-food!

What a cutie.

Hide and Seek

There will come a day when Silas hides and mom & dad can't find him.... but not today!!!

We buy all these toys and yet a simple sprinkler will keep Silas happy.

We found a nice train set at IKEA.  Usually Silas just wants to destroy the track daddy makes, but this time he started to actually play with the trains!  Yeah!

Skinned Knee

As I understand it, boys will get hundreds of skinned knees over their lifetime. But the first one is always the hardest. :(

It isn't easy seeing your boy hurt.

So glad mum is there to give the comforting kiss.
