A Visit to the Lake (and New Pictures!)

Pam, Will and I spent a great three days with Joe and Shirley Bator on Bull Shoals Lake, where Pam’s family has been vacationing for decades and where I’d spent a lot of years joining them.  We had a great time catching up and relaxing with Joe and Shirley, who have a gift for making us feel just as comfortable as possible.  Will spent some time in the lake, and mostly enjoyed it, despite getting overheated on Saturday.  He did very well on the seven-hour drive to-and-from, and we got to spend a few hours with Clan Adomite/Lenny on Monday on the way home.

While down at the lake, Pam and I engaged in some waterskiing – or at least Pam did! – and tubing, and now I’m so sore that I still can’t really use my left arm.  I think Joe may have injured me.  :-)

Will 0.11 (yes, he’s eleven months old now, which seems impossible) experienced lots of new things, but particularly enjoyed napping on the pontoon boat, and eating oreos.

I’ve also uploaded a bunch of pictures, some from as far back as July, into the following albums:

Enjoy!

Pam and I are getting busy planning Will’s first birthday party, so stay tuned for more updates!

Phoenix Sunshine

Will 0.4 has had a great weekend in Phoenix.  He’s really felt well, and has discovered his voice to a stunning degree, squealing and laughing and shouting for up to an hour at a time, several times per day.

He’s also eating like a pig, devouring eight six-ounce bottles yesterday.  He’s clearly ready for solid food, and since we’ve gotten his digestive tract mostly fixed (with the aid of some holistic happy bacteria supplement), we will start him on it again when we return home.

The weather was gorgeous today, so we went for a little walk this afternoon, and got Will his first real sunshine since he was born.  We’re flying home tomorrow, and return to rain and snow and sleet.

Today, though, Will looked fantastic in his safari hat.
