Sawyer's Animal Sounds

Sawyer has been working on learning his animal sounds lately. Here's a little sampling...
(we'll work on "what do chicks say?" some more :)

Birthday Parties?

Today while we were eating lunch, Cameron and I asked Hudson what kind of birthday party he wants next month when he turns 3. We were suggesting party themes of things he likes– a Cars party, animal party, art party, super-hero party, dinosaur party... Hudson's ideas were:

· stranger party
· trash party
· ABC party
· garbage truck party
· ham sandwich party

· Kooka poo poo party (Kooka is what he named our fish, we won't address the poo poo)
· coconut party (as he stuffed shredded coconut into his mouth)

He also specified that he wants some sort of special birthday drink and he wants helicopters to come pick up the kids with strings and take them for rides– especially if it's a space ranger party.

Hopefully he won't choose the stranger party... handing out those invitations would be really awkward (especially to the pigeon man who pours birdseed on himself over in the park). At least no one would feel offended if they weren't invited...

Hudson brought this paper over to us and said, "Look! I drew a dolphin!"

Happy Mother's Day

My favorite thing about Spring...

...the flowering trees in New York.

...and these tulips get an honorable mention :)

A few days of summer...

We've had one weekend of summer temperatures so far this year, so we decided to take a stroll through Central Park by Sheep's Meadow. Call me crazy, but I think that maybe a few New Yorkers were excited for the warm weather... good thing we wore sunglasses or we might have been blinded by all that first-reveal-of-the-summer white skin.
