Jet Pack

I've been seeing DIY jet packs all over Pinterest and I knew Miles would love one of his own.
This was the only clear picture I could get of him because once the jet pack was on he was flying everywhere! 

Here are the tutorials I looked at and ended up using bits from all three to our finished product.

Eleven Years

Look how the lighting in this picture gives us both 5 o'clock shadows.  
Oh well, Geary loves me, beard and all.  
And I love him.

Another Phrase I Never Expected to Say

"Stop licking the door frame."

A Little Shut Eye

Miles' eyes were getting droopy on a recent car ride.  I could tell he was super tired and would fall asleep quickly.  I jokingly said, "Don't fall asleep Miles! Stay awake."  He smiled and shook his head, "I can't."  

"No, no, don't take a nap," I teased.

He let his eyes close and murmured, "I don't need a nap.  I'm just sleeping."

Geary wanted to take the boys to get lunch at a nearby elementary school today.  What can I say?  They love cafeteria food.

I was getting Miles (age 2) ready for the outing and I asked him, "Do you walk to school or do you ride in your stroller?"

"I ride my stroller.  You want pish me."

Of course he was stating that I would push him in the stroller but his toddler language was so adorable that I couldn't help repeating his phrase.

"You want pish me?" I asked with a giggle.

Miles sized me up and then said, "No.  I can't pish you.  You want pish me."

"I push da button!"

Toby (hoping to earn some dessert):  I ate my dinner all gone!
Geary:  You did?  You ate it all gone and it went down into your tummy?
Toby:  Daa-aad!  All food goes down.  I didn't eat an elevator!
