Pony Ride @ Gma's

Allyssa let Kate & Carson take a turn on her pony, "Mistie" last week. Carson loved it, Kate was upset that Carson was on it and Allyssa was so patiently sitting on the bum... no saddle for her! Good times. OH and, YES, Carson is still in his Pajama's from the night before. I'm such a good mom.

Garage Scrubbing & Flag Twirling

Have I ever told you that Carson is OBSESSED with the American Flag? He can 'spot' a flag a mile away.. :) Seriously though, he points out every single flag while we are driving down the road; I think I can honestly say that I have seen every flag in the entire city. We have parked in Macey's parking lot numerous times to watch the flag and also in the hospital. The kid is obsessed. He has at least two in his hands at all times and cannot go without it. He sleeps with one (no rod attached) and wakes up wanting more. Grandma & Grandpa Marvell gave him a flag shirt that he absolutely loves. They call him "Flag Boy" or FB for short. I have no idea where the obsession came from; but it's alright with me.. I know there are some out there who are probably disgusted how he drags them around and probably think it's a disgrace to the flag, but for a little boy who is obsessed, I think it's ok :)

Zack loves to "squeegee".. in fact, tonight we were at a restaurant and in the middle of eating (clearly, we weren't ready to leave yet) he said, "I just want to go home so I can squeegee something. Can we leave yet?" He helped Jed clean the floors at the kitchen a few days ago and loved it. He's pretty OCD when it comes right down to it; he does a pretty good job... he gets all the water out. The garage floor was nasty.. melted otter pops that were thrown from the car window, broken toys, grass clippings, dirt, tire tracks.. you name it, it was there.. smashed all over the floor. Now it looks so much better :)

Labor Day Dove Hunting

Traditions, traditions as G-pa Fife would say...
Grandpa Bruce and Uncle Brody took Zack dove hunting yesterday at 4 AM. Needless to say, Zack was jumping out of his boots excited! They went South somewhere and didn't come home until 9PM. As soon as they got back to Gpa's house Zack and Brody started cleaning the birds . Zack proceeded to tell me all about the day, how he shot a bird directly between the eyes and blew his head off. He also told me that there were bears trying to get the doves, but he was so fast with his gun that he shot them first. All pretty amazing stories huh? The kid has an imagination as well as a pure love of the outdoors... especially hunting with Gpa. And at home...... we went to a movie and Carrabba's for lunch/dinner. Fried zucchini, chicken marsala fifteen loaves of bread (seemed like it anyway) and a John Cole dessert... oh, it was the best meal of my life. Sorry Marvellous Catering.. :)
