Fisher is talking more and more. Unfortunately, he speaks a language that we don't know. Barrett claims to understand, but when the translation ends up being that Fisher wants Barrett to have skittles, I am pretty sure Barrett doesn't understand him either.
Barrett has grown up so much this summer. He is quite the little man, and if he would quit throwing fits throughout the day, he'd be really fun to be around all the time.
He is really into organizing things now, and I love it. He has "homes" for all his toys, and if something is in the wrong place, he is quick to correct it. I know it sounds like a wonderful thing, but he has had more than a few meltdowns when Fisher has decided to help pick up.
Barrett is also very excited about our upcoming "Bay-K-shun". We are headed to Florida in a couple weeks for Papa and Mary's wedding. I've tried to explain that to him, but he is focused on the beach, the pools, and his cousins. Although, he was super excited about the attire that Mary requested he wear. Here he is modeling the two options he has.
Notice the surfer hands that Katie, his babysitter/ swim teacher taught him. He thinks that it is really cool to do.
Other than that, Barrett is still singing "Hey, Good Looking" to most girls he sees, and he has become the ring tone on quite a few cell phones at church. :)
I wish I had more time to write, but I need to send out more recruiting emails. If you are wanting more updates and you go to my church, sign up to teach preschool Sunday school, and I'll have a lot more free time!

Let's just say that if we took Fisher to an all-you-can-eat rib dinner, we would definitely get our money's worth. I honestly have no idea how much he ate, but he ate rib after rib for a LONG time.
After dinner and playing, it was time for the fireworks. Barrett was just a little excited as you can tell in the picture.
(Honestly, I don't know why he was so excited because he didn't have a clue what fireworks were.)
The first things we did since it wasn't quite dark yet were the smoke bombs.
Fisher was really curious about them, but it had nothing to do with the smoke. He just wanted to play with the "ball".
Once they were lit, Fisher thought it was really funny, but he was still mad that he couldn't hold it.
Barrett and Sydney had fun sitting together on the curb watching the fireworks.
After about an hour and half, all the kids had gotten tired of the noise. Doug took Fisher in and put him to bed because he was not happy, and after trying cotton balls in Barrett and Sydney's ears, Doug solved the noise problem for them.
After another hour, Barrett was DONE, but he wouldn't admit it. He kept insisting he wanted to keep watching.
A few moments after that picture was taken, the melt down began. Within 15 minutes, he was inside, changed, and tucked in bed.
As I was leaving, he said, "Mommy, I love you this much. I had so much fun today. Can you tell the fireworks to be quiet?"
"Oh, I wish I could..."

I thought Barrett was in the playroom and Fisher was watching Baby Einstein, but Barrett had apparently decided Fisher's show was better than his cows.
If only they could get along this well all the time!
