seven weeks ago today we left for our annual trip to oglebay with mike's family. it was a great, busy week full of walking, mini-golfing, golfing (for the big kids), paddleboats, swimming, and all kinds of fun. sam was particularly interested in the miniature train display at the good zoo (which he still mentions regularly), and the model rocket launching (also mentioned regularly).
a few of my favorite quotes from sam from that week:
me (looking at sam's drawing): what are you drawing?
sam: mommy tell you.*
me: it looks like a dog.
sam: oh yeah!
sam's rocket countdown (overheard from across the room): one…two…three…four…five…three…two…one…blastoff!
* footnote: "mommy tell you" was sam's way of saying "i don't know", and came from my asking if he'd "like mommy to tell you?"
he has since dropped this phrase and now simply says "i don't know."
