Only in Alabama....

is it appropriate to use a pop-up tailgating tent as a patio umbrella and allow your child to get in the baby pool naked!

While said child swims naked Daddy works on a construction project 20 feet in front of him.

Ahh, yes, my friends in Ohio are for sure making fun of us right now:) Brady does indeed own a swim suit, but I keep forgetting to buy him swim diapers. Thank goodness everyone down here has privacy fences, otherwise the neighbors might think we're from around here. Have I ever told you about our neighbors across the street who let their little boy run naked ALL OVER THE NEIGHBORHOOD? Actually, I just saw him this morning - naked - in our other neighbor's front yard.

The past few days have been busy for us. Friday I took Brady over to the Eastern Shore Centre to meet up with a few other moms/kiddos to play in the outdoor fountain. Brady had so much fun. He was a little timid at first and didn't like the water shooting out at him, but he finally eased up and had a blast. He played with so many other children (and of course stole all their toys). We only stayed about an hour and a half, but he was beat. Again, only in Alabama is it appropriate to take your kids to the outdoor shopping mall to play in the water fountain!

Saturday Rob and Justin left at 6:30 in the morning to go to Auburn for the A-day game. He didn't get home till 8:30 that night. I was exhausted from entertaining Brady by myself all day! And I get to do it again for the next two days - Rob is working TWO 14 hour shifts back to back Tues. and Wed. This is how he managed to get this past weekend off for the game.

I had to go to Goodwill last week to drop some items off and decided to walk around to see if they had anything good. I found this adorable child's school desk for $13 as well some books for Brady and a few other items. He loves this thing. He sits in it all the time - watching TV, eating snacks, playing with toys. I really want to paint it a funky color, but Rob thinks it should stay the way it is.

Isn't he the cutest?
