The trunk of Scott's car was the only place I could think to hide it that Ryan wouldn't accidentally stumble across it. He was pleasantly surprised and excited.
We took a long walk (us)/ride (him) and it was great! Yet another thing that makes him grow more independent. Loved watching him get further away from us.
And, just FYI. Pay the extra $10 to have the store assemble it. Directions usually stink!

Well, the disappointment did not last long. After a short nap back home, Ryan and Scott went out to get some new supplies. Later that evening, they went back over to our little pond to fish. I got a phone call saying, "Bring over the camera!" Look what they caught:
Ask Scott to tell you the story sometime (he tells it better since he was there). We had never seen catfish in our pond, so as he's reeling it in, he's thinking he's got a log. Then, since it was moving, he thought, maybe a turtle (we saw two get caught at the finshing rodeo). He was shocked to see the catfish! Then Ryan caught two more on his little Scooby-Doo rod, but they were too strong and broke his line before he could get them.
Now we need to learn how to gut them and cook them!

This morning Ryan seemed a bit more excited about "gynastics" than he had over the weekend and I told him that the big boys just kiss their mommies and jump out at carpool. Could he do that? He seemed to think he could, but he would just "blow me a kiss."
We got there and he did just that. It helped that Kellie's son, Ryan's buddy, Arlan, was there for tumbling, too. He got out and never looked back. And when I picked him up, he proclaimed it "fun."
Kudos, too, to Kellie, for having such an amazingly organized system. Because of the info she sent me, I knew just where to go, she had people there to get kids out of cars, and camp signs up so the kids knew just where to go. Awesome!
It was good, just a little violnt (it is, after all, a Kung Fu movie! Jack Black is very funny and the overall message is good.)

We made Scott waffles for breakfast:
Took some pictures after church:
Watched some of the U.S. Open:
Then went over to Matt & Barb's house for dinner where I kept Ryan busy in their neighbor's pool while Scott watched the end of the Open in peace.
Also, stopped by to say hi to Heidi and Ian. Here's the new father with baby Aiden:

After that, they went on to a Memphis Redbird's baseball game where they met Arlan and Mr. Chris. They stayed for the whole thing and the fireworks after! It's no wonder they took Sunday off and just stayed home!
