All in a line - alternately titled "Bringing up the rear" since that's Jayce at the end

toss-up, originally uploaded by cmdbryant.

Maggie loves to be thrown way up high in the air. Each time she's safely in her daddy's arms she'll cry out "Nin! Nin!" wanting to go up again! again!

2007 Plano Balloon Festival, originally uploaded by cmdbryant.

2007 Plano Balloon Festival - Saturday morning launch. This was taken from the car while we were driving to Jayce's soccer game.

We didn't actually make it to the festival this year but you can see pictures from our previous visits here:

Fast food math, originally uploaded by cmdbryant.

Fast Food Math Lesson. It went something like this...
R: Here you have 2 balls Jayce, what happens when I give you 2 more?
J: I have 4 balls!
R: Right! So if I take one ball away, how many do you have?
J: Three... but I want 5 balls.
R: Ok, I take 2 balls away, I subtract 2, how many do you have now?
J: You're just being mean to me. I only have one ball now and you're not being fair taking my balls away like that.
R: So I take another ball away. How many do you have now?
J: This is not fair. I want 5 balls and now I don't have any and you are just mean and I don't like this game.
R: So if I give you these balls back, how many do you have?
J: Three, but I want 5! (near tears) I do not like this game. You are just mean.
Oh, the injustice of math!

Little golfer, originally uploaded by cmdbryant.

And Maggie is joining in on the action now too. She absolutely refuses to play with the plastic golf clubs anymore - she has to have a real club like Daddy & bubba.

Bathtime Mohawks, originally uploaded by cmdbryant.

Jayce loves bathtime mohawks. Maggie just ends up looking more like a kewpie doll.

Jayce running, originally uploaded by cmdbryant.

Jayce appears to be "sashaying" down the field, snapping his fingers, ready to break into song.

What a beautiful young lady this 7-year-old is.

Maggie at the marina. I think this one looks just a bit creepy or something but in reality she just loved stomping up and down the wooden dock listening to the noise her feet made. Unfortunately she was doing a great job of scaring away the fish that Richard & Jayce were trying to catch.

Lakes, mountains, trees ... I don't think we're in Texas anymore

We just returned from a week-long family vacation to Branson, MO. This is the first of several pictures I'll post from that trip.
