Felix speaks

Some memorable recent Felix quotes:

Overheard in the shower this morning: "Oh cool, I can make my penis look like a flying squirrel!"

Screamed at me when told he'd have to just let Gideon keep the binoculars because it was time to go to school: "Gideon is my nemesis!"

"Have we ever been to this little breakfast place called, I think, McDonald's?" (There's a McD's next to the breakfast place we do most often go to.)

Gideon eats

Entertaining enough, but appetizing it's not.

Felix's 5th birthday party

A very happy birthday, Felix, and a very happy party. A few highlights:

The theme was "Animals Around the World," and so, having constructed a fleet of balsa planes, off we flew to Australia:

Having hopped like everyone's favorite large marsupial we took off for Africa for an elephant walk:

And then, no time to be lost, further south to Antarctica where, after some instruction from an actual Antarctic scientist, we helped penguins move their eggs:

Having criss-crossed the globe we applied the knowledge gained to select suitable Safari Cards:

And then, all animaled-up, we had cake:

Thanks all for a great party!

Family skate

Talia promised Felix skates, inline skates that is, but before buying we thought it wise to do some trying, so the whole family, plus Shanna, went off to our not-so-local rink. Wow, flashback!

I don't understand how this happened, but on Felix's own birthday I failed to get a film of him skating. Sorry Felix, I'll get a good one of you soon, I promise! But I did get one of the Gid skating with our friend Shanna. It hadn't even occurred to me that they'd have skates to fit him, but they did, and once he realized what was going on there was no holding him back:

And once he'd had some practice he started really pulling:

Go Gid!
