Grandma broke the TV

Following the last day of school, Travis and I usually go out to eat at one of our favorite Madison restaurants, Eldorado Grill. Grandma Sue was gracious enough to come and watch Jonas for the evening so that we could go out and have a little adult summer kick off. She even brought Jonas some ladybug window clings (note the post-nap bed head).

When we got home she told us that she had tried to turn some music on via Sirius radio on the tv, but it wasn't working. I had to break it to her that it was already broken. The sound hasn't worked in about a year, which doesn't bother us since we never really watch TV anyway.

Last night at dinner Jonas remembered the TV looming behind his head and told us the story of how it all happened. This is all the more funny because I don't think he's ever seen the TV on. You'd think by his insistence that the little goof watches TV on a daily basis or something. Nonetheless, we got a good toddler story and a good video out of the whole escapade.

Kroegers visit!

We were lucky this past weekend to have Sho, Dominick, and Granny Sharon visit. The weather could have been a bit better, but we all managed to get to the Farmer's Market, State Street, the Memorial Union, EVP, and a few restaurants. Dominick and Jonas had a blast playing together and running around. The boys must have run fifteen laps in a row around the living room and kitchen loop before collapsing. They also kept each other "in line" by making sure whatever their parents expected was repeated in a toddler version. Jonas now keeps asking for "Dom" and we hope to see them again soon!

Dancing as only toddlers can...

Tool time

Time to relax and read a book!

Not good

So, remember a few weeks back Jonas ate some blue playdough while I was at a wine tasting? Well, Travis is gone tonight and Jonas is doing great. The dogs, however, just ate a nest full of baby bunnies leaving some carnage behind. I guess each "kid" has to test their parents now and again. You can thank me in person for not posting a video like Travis did of Jonas's blue face.

Here's a cute picture of Jonas instead.

One "teaching year"

If you are a teacher, you know that a "year" doesn't include the three summer months. So I thought I'd do a teaching year retrospective of Jonas's life. At the beginning of September Jonas went to the Madison Children's Museum for the first time. It saved us many times on cold winter days when the toys in the house had been all played out. Well, last week when we went to the Children's Museum during a rainy day I took some more pictures to compare how much he has changed this "year".
