A day with Twister

t1063


I have to admit that I was kind of nervous when Tristan came to spend the night. I know he loves being with me, but I fully expected a crying spell wanting his mama near bed time. It never happened!


t1064


We played inside, we played outside, inside and outside. He discovered not only that MeMaw had forgotten to turn the hose off but that he’s now strong enough to spray it.


t1065


Getting him to look at the camera is a real challenge since he’s grown up with a camera in his face. Haden warned that he might turn and spray the camera but luckily he hasn’t figured out how much fun that is yet. Either way, we turned the water off.


t1066


See just a trickle now.


t1067


He was looking to see where the water went when there was just enough to slam him in the face. Luckily, it just brought giggles.  Bath time over. ;)


t1068


Uncle Haden got him a piece of chalk.


t1069


Which he promptly put back up. Everything in its place, just ask my Twister.


t1077


And the lid must be put on tightly or someone’s not happy.


t1071


Doesn’t he look angelic?!


t1075


Or maybe that’s devilish? A rock in an empty water bottle makes a grand noise!


t1076


Some time on the tricycle wears a boy out.


t1073


He played in his stroller, round and round the driveway until Haden and I were dizzy.


t1074


When he got out of the stroller he felt the seat belt needed to be buckled. Everything in its place, you know?


t1078


He found my crocs and not too many photos were taken after that. Something makes me nervous about an 18 month old traipsing around on asphalt in shoes a million times to big for him.  Needless to say, I hid the crocs as soon as he left them behind.

He approves of the little raccoon charm SwampAngel (In geocaching we’re the bandits and I love the charm!) got me, he just wishes he could have taken it home.


Now, are you surprised he slept 12 hours that night?
