As all of you lovely blog followers know, the hundreds of you, I rarely write anything in my posts. I like to post pretty pictures of the pretty boy and let them speak for themselves. Just for fun, and to change things up, I'm writing something before posting the most recent pictures of our more recent travels. This summer has been one of adventure: adventure to new countries, old friends, gay marriage, chickens, and parks and playgrounds everywhere we can find them. The boy has been an excellent travel companion, sleeping when necessary and playing all the time. He's made new friends of various ages, new kid friends as well as new adult friends. He's learned a little German and taken after his big cousin Eric. He's wished me a Happy Birthday about 10 times, which is pretty much the greatest birthday present ever. He's learned how to talk on the phone to his grandparents. When I tell him we are about to travel somewhere he says, "Do you think they will have toy cars there"?
