It's all just evidence of a child growing up and exploring the world around him.
And he still doesn't really like getting dirty or wet.
We'll see how quickly that changes.

We were so proud of him- you never know with toddlers if they are goin to follow through with something new, but he got right on and didn't look back!
Then, Mommy got "flushed." The senior class was sponsering a booth similar to a dunk tank. Thank goodness it was as warm as it was, the water actually felt good!
After drying off, we caught up with the Hanlon's and rode the fire truck:
And then the fire slide:
We found more friends (Melissa and Mason) and ran around, ate dinner and danced to the music. We watched two people parachute in:
And finally waited for the fireworks to finish the evening. Ryan, Mason, and Parker took turns pulling the wagon around in the dark:Our Parent's Association did an amazing job with this event! Go Gryphons!
and washing the car with Gramps...
Glad to have such nice weather for their visit!

You can't see it too well, but my friend and co-prom-advisor (and general partner in crime at school), Heidi and I are wearing fake tiaras. I think after all the hassle of being the first prom advisors for St. George's, we deserved a little royal treatment.
Prom went great! Everyone pitched in for the final set-up and clean-up, the kids looked beautiful, and so many people said it was a fantastic party! Hooray!

Not that important in the grand scheme of things, except to say that I take a lot of pictures (digital makes it so easy) and that my camera locked up afterward and would not let me take anymore. It apparently does not flip like the odometer on your car. Not good for me, since I hope to take lots of prom pictures tonight. I think I have solved the problem, so bring on #10000!

Mom, we may have a project for your visit next weekend. Think we can find a pattern for a cape? (don't look for one now, we'll go out together when you get here...or we'll just keep using blankets)

Here's Ryan with his great-grandfather and Miss Barbara. We had a great time with them.
Twenty-four hours later, it was back to Charlotte to celebrate Easter with my parents and sister. We only spent twenty-four hours there, too, so just a few pictures. Ryan hunting eggs and going through what the Easter Bunny left him. All he wants now are "treats."
Can't wait to see Nanny and Gramps again in two weeks!

First, we went with our friends, Melissa and Mason, to Bartlett's Easter Egg "Hunt." I put the "Hunt" in quotes, not them. Not sure how other places do it, because I've only done hunts at my own or another family member's home and now here, but here, they roll out a lot of eggs in a little field and let the kids run and pick them up. Don't be late or you will miss this hunt!
I thought this was our year. Ryan would be independent, go out there and scoop up tons of eggs. Nope. Despite going over, "What are you going to do when they say go?" and "See those eggs out there?," when everyone ran out, Ryan wanted none of it. I did scoop up a Dairy Queen coupon. :)
The tattoos and playground afterward were much more entertaining to Ryan.
Later, we shopped for Ryan's Easter outfit (can't believe it's next weekend!). He wore his new shoes to church today.
