Statues at Versailles

Virgile and Daniel striking a pose at Versailles. They were, IMHO, the best statues there... Now that we are outside of Paris, note the Batman hat.

Eiffel View

Moving from London to Paris, we made the transition from Iron Man to Spider Man--note that Daniel is wearing his spiderman shirt to match his action figure. We were in the glass tubes at the top of the Centre Pompidou, enjoying the view the Eiffel Tower.

Trafalgar Square

Hanging out with Iron Man, his new acquisition from "Forbidden Planet" comic book shop in London, and not seeming too intimidated by the lion statues on the Trafalgar Square monument.

Fishing in Pajamas

...says "vacation" in one easy step. I mean, how great is it to get to catch a huge sunfish in hotrod pajamas using your very own spiderman fishing pole before settling in for fresh blueberry pancakes for breakfast?!

Daniel caught this one all on his own. He cast the line, watched the bobber until it got pulled under, then reeled in the fish--everything all on his own. (I may have held the rod a bit so it didn't get pulled out of his hands). He was so excited we ran all the way back to the house with the fish so Mom could take this great picture.

Jumping in the Lake with Sadie

Is this a Norman Rockwell moment or what? Sadie and Gabriel were magnificent hosts at the lake. Daniel and Sadie had a great time jumping off the dock and generally splashing about in the water.

At the Pool

...continuing from our previous post...

..And to prove that he had a good time, we have a testimonial, with limited prompting.

The official transcript is as follows:

"Hey Daniel, what did you just do with Daddy?"

"throooowwww.... me up in the air."

"Did it feel good?"

"Yeah! Hellloooooooo!"

Thowing in the pool

Daniel loves the pool. He loves swimming even more now that he figured out how to get his face in the water... His new trick is "getting thrown in the water." He'll go for hours, literally, without a break. When he gets cold, we have to remind him to get out of the pool and warm up. He's quite the advocate, though. Watch the movie to see him plead his case.

Fourth of July

It was the neighborhood 4th of July picnic, and Daniel , for a change, decided to dress up in his spiderman suit. It all started around 5, and we tore him away from the picnic a mere 3 hours later. In between, there were untold numbers of watermellon slices, bits of hotdogs, some cookies with M&Ms in them, potato chips, fruit salad, and perhaps some woodchips and grass--we don't keep that close track...

He was hangin' with his crowd: Rocine, Eve, Nigel (pictured), as well as Mikayla, Miles, and others.

Nigel even gave him a lift.

A grand time was hand by all.

Hanging with Cousin Max

What is more fun for a young dude than haning with an older kid? Well, how about hanging with an older cousin! Daniel loves seeing Max, who was visiting to check out colleges.
We had a great time seeing the whole family (nearly), Max, uncle Jim and aunt Debbie. We look forward to seeing Jeremy in late August on the cape!
