One fell off and made his lip bloody. A fun night with the Browns almost came to an end with Jack's bloody lip, but luckily it wasn't too bad and Noah, his best friend and partner in crime, cheered him up by sharing some cool Planet Heroes toys. We found a great new play spot with a tree perfect for climbing. There's also plenty of grass for a fun game of tag. We always love our nights out with the Brown clan. We're so fortunate to be friends with such an amazing family!

Crush might've gotten that catchphrase from the Beatles or even Simon & Garfunkel, but I think at this moment we relate more to Crush's sentiments. Jack has decided that he's ready for potty training and he's doing it! I can't take any credit at all. He has been in undies during waking hours for the past three days and he's been dry! We had a little issue with #2, but after one mishap he figured it out and tonight he went poo poo on the potty! "Big poo poo", as he would tell you.
He loves his underwear so much (especially his Finding Nemo undies) that at night we have to put it on over his pull-ups just to get him to wear the pull-ups (not sure he's ready to go dry all night yet). Whenever we're home he takes off his shorts so that he can show off to everyone that he's wearing undies. Tonight, in the middle of playing outside with all the excitement of two neighborhood boys over and the stomp rockets flying, he stopped and took himself to the potty--amazing! How did we hit this just right? We're so proud of him and, best of all, he's really proud of himself.

Happy Father's Day! We enjoyed the day with a trip to Charlotte's own U.S. Olympic training site. The Whitewater Center has the world's largest man-made whitewater river--very cool. Of course, the kids aren't old enough to go rafting yet, but it was fun to hike around the facility and take in the whitewater rafting, kayaking, and rock climbing going on around us. You can do rock climbing there starting at age 4, so I think we might get Ella out there soon.
Well, I think Jonathan and I enjoyed the hike more than the kids...you might notice they're dragging a bit in their walk with me. They seemed to fully rebound by the time we made it over to the boulder climbing area for little kids, though.
"I'm Queen of the Mountain!"
Diggin' the wristband and shades, Jack!
The first three weeks of Summer have been amazing! We've been on some grand adventures. But, it's all about to slow down for a few weeks. Ella will have morning camps for the next two weeks and Jack and I are hunkering down at home for some serious potty-training boot camp. So, hopefully our next post will be that Jack is in big-boy underwear. Keep your fingers crossed!
