Party Girl



Of course if you had a princess dress, you would want to wear it! And when you are four, you definitely want to wear it, no matter where  you are going. So here is Ava dressed like a princess at the fair, doing all the things one does there. It surely does make cute pictures.

And to beat all that, the second picture shows three little kids, one dressed in pink.

Stars and Stripes

Al is a great shopper and this time he came up with a fantastic large USA flag...the starts and stripes forever!  He brought it  to the house so our group could see it. As you can see, he didn't completely unfold it, It would have been dragging on the floor.
Yes, it is big...especially for a private home flag. He now needs a very substantial tall flag pole. I wonder how long it will take him to find just the right one. I hope it is soon.

To go along with  Al's new flag, I'm posting a song that I really like written by George M. Cohan in 1906, You're a Grand Old Flag.

I prefer the chorus and verse 2. I guess that is because I am the daughter of a Rebel father and mother, but I am an honest to goodness Yankee. 
I've omitted verse one.  


Chorus
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high-flying flag,
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of the land I love,
The home of the free and the brave.[N 5]
Ev'ry heart beats true
'Neath the Red, White and Blue,[N 6]
Where there's never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,[N 7]
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Tom Boy Princess



This little one is dearly loved around here. She loves everyone and on the nights that we have our life group here, she is in her own little heaven with all the attention. To her daddy, she is a little tomboy who loves all vehicles, cars, trucks, tractors....boats. But to me, she is a little angel, my princess. She plays both roles very well.

The Space Cowboy


I can see a new movie brewing...The Space Cowboy.  Oliver really deserves to be the star.
Here he is practicing riding a horse in his space suit.  I can just see it now. Oliver on Mars or would it be Neptune or Jupiter. Well we will just have to wait and find out.

Phoenix the Horse




Caleb, Oliver and Julia love horses. Their friends Bryce and Cora have a beautiful horse named Phoenix. Recently they all went to the farm where Phoenix is boarded to visit. In the top layout they are walking single file  out to the pasture to see the horse. The pictures in the second layout were taken in the barn. They are all a little small to be horse groomers, but they all tried their hands at it.

Notice the braided mane on Phoenix.

Dinner in PJs

This is the first time the triplets have celebrated their  birthdays separately. Ashley at an Anime Cosplay, Aussie at a Rubik's Cube Competition and Mason at home. Mason didn't feel slighted. He felt laid back and comfortable. Comfortable enough to go out to dinner in his pjs. Of course, in his generation, that is no big deal...it just is for the parent who happens to be along and paying the bill.

However, he was able to go without changing and had a great meal.

This was back in July, the 27th of this year. School has started and he has been dressing  a little more 'formally'.

And let's face it, pajamas or not, he's quite handsome.

Aggies




It was a special  game.  Could it  have been the first game of the season? I don't know, but it was quite an outing for these guys. Caleb and Oliver have on their Aggies shirts. I've included the history behind them calling themselves the Aggies when the team is the Rams. It goes back before 1957 when Colorado State was called Colorado Agriculture and Mechanical College or Colorado A & M.
Can't beat the game  being accompanied by face  painting and pop cycles.

It is well into the season now. And Caleb is on a team. They have not yet played a game, but  I imagine it will be soon.
