Go Bucs!*

Last weekend, we went to Sesame Street Live. It was a fantastic show as far as we were concerned (except balloons were $8 each - we did not get one), but G wasn't interested after about 30 seconds, if that. We skipped out and walked around CNN center and had lunch at Pappi's. At least he got to frolic with the Muppets...

Full of good eats, we drove to Hoover, Alabama to a) see Tony and b) watch the nation's #1 football team in action. It was so much fun on both counts, and the long drive was definitely worth it.

On Saturday, we went to Selena's birthday party, where we learned that Chip is a great gymnast.

We spent most of Sunday at Piedmont Park, and on Labor Day, we can't remember what we did other than grill, so it must have been good.

G is being extremely well-behaved this week, and we are very proud of him. Today, he even had a major breakthrough on the eating front. He ate pasta salad and sat at the table with us throughout our entire dinner! You can bet he got the royal treatment after that! Hopefully he is encouraged to eat more often.

We had a busy day today - two parks and a playdate. We're not sure whether it's okay to post photos of Chip's friends, so here is one of him in a football helmet that he put on to swing a baseball bat. Safety first!

And finally, here's one for the grand- and great-grandparents. Get your printers ready!

*Let's make it abundantly clear that Bucs refers to Hoover Buccaneers, not anything related in any way, shape, or form to that school. Go Blue!
