our little man in plaid both of my boys... exhausted. and i just had to include this funny little video where scott lets me know how he feels about me holding the camera in front of his face all day long. (the last three seconds are the funniest.)

before we moved to iowa one of james' goals was for us to buy our very own grill as soon as we got here. so we made the treck out to walmart one late and tired night and made the purchase. it cost $20 bucks and as you can see - can hold up to four pieces of chicken, two steaks and a couple shish-ka-bobs. i don't even remember the name of the girl in the picture. we had a big bbq on saturday with a bunch of D.O.'s and their wives and she happened to be flipping her food when i wanted to take a picture. i felt too bad to tell her that i didn't want her in the picture...
again, i just can't help it. he's just too cute.

we went to the fair with a bunch of other dmu students and their wives as pictured below.
L-R me, james and scotty; shalise and devin kearns; jamie, adam and their son caleb; allison and doug.
here's a cutie-pa-tutie picture of james and scotty. scott decided that he didn't love the iowa state fair. maybe next year.
here's a close-up of scott not loving the fair.
and here's a picture of him finally falling asleep. and the party begins!
okay, i just had to get proof of this. deep fried twinkies? how do they expect us to live past the age of forty!?
you know you're in iowa when...
you're staring at a 1,250 pound hog. poor thing couldn't even stand up for the picture.
and this wasn't even taken on the day of the fair. but seriously, have you seen a cuter little boy in your life?

The License Plate Game...
james was very determined to see as many license plates from different states as he could and i have to say he did pretty well. all in all he spotted license plates from 36 different states on our 1,000 mile drive along I-80. He was so proud of them that i just have to list them here in the blog:
alabama, arizona, arkansas, california, colorado, florida, hawaii, idaho, illinois, indiana, iowa, kansas, kentucky, maine, maryland, massachusettes, michigan, minnesota, mississippi, misouri, montana, nebraska, nevada, new york, north caroline, ohio, oregon, pennsylvania, south carolina, south dakota, tennessee, texas, utah, washington, wisconsin, wyoming
action footage of the trip:
my great aunt maxine was nice enough to let us stay with her one of the nights that we were traveling. she lives in olgalala nebraska and she showed us a good ol' midwestern time. here's a panoramic of downtown des moines. as you can probably tell... it's huge. james' school paid for us to go to the iowa cubs baseball game. scott was a bit tired and was cooperating even less than usual at holding his head up for a picture... hence my hand in the picture to prop it up for him. daddy and scotti watching the game. we're already true blue cub fans... even though they happened to be playing the salt lake bees that night. okay, i know i already have some older pictures of scott in this very towel, but everytime i give a bath i can't help but whip out the camera. he's so darn cute!
and last but definitely not least, a cute video of our little tyke. enjoy!
