Dad Day

The weekends at our house are what we call dad days. Throughout the week we have Laina days, which refer to his, Thomas', playmate at the daycare in which the boys go to. Then Saturdays are Dad days and Sundays are Dad days and Church days. Mostly this lets Thomas know what we are doing once he gets up. Tomorrow is his first Mom day in a while as Jessica is now starting her regular hours at Nordstrom which allow for her to stay home on Mondays and work Tuesdays through Saturdays. We had some fun these past couple Dad days and I wanted to share some good pictures that I was able to get of Ollie since those seem to be tougher and tougher to get these days as he doesn't just automatically smile for the camera anymore.
Look at that golfer stance right there above. Put a club into his hand instead of that babygate and I'd say he's a natural golfer. The last couple I wanted to demonstrate that Oliver also has to earn his keep around here and what better way to do it then to make him scrub the deck!

Star Wars space ship and a Death Star

Please pay no attention to the colors of our project as we had to improvise on our star wars spaceship and our mini death star. Thomas had just as much fun building these as he did playing with them!

Dinosaur Mario Kart

Well today marks the day that I will begin to immortalize Thomas and I's projects onto this blog. It seems most times we play with Legos and other open ended building toys we will end up with something totally cool and then destroy it and it will be completely forgotten about as we move onto the next project. Well today I introduce a new series of posts that will allow Thomas and I to remember our past projects as we move onto new (and hopefully more sophisticated) projects. If we ever have anything with moving parts I will make sure to include a video in the future.

Today I present Dinosaur Mario Kart as Thomas calls it. We started out trying to build a race track and ended up adding some dinosaur spectators. I'll let you all enjoy the pictures.
