We missed the mass balloon lift-off this morning but did manage to catch this tethered balloon ride. Donovan was excited until he got up close. The gigantic size and flames got him scared and he didn't want to ride.
We went on to the carnival side of events and Donovan began to tantrum because he didn't understand he had to wait in line to go. As soon as he got to the bottom he was ready to go right back up again. He went through the wacky-house that ended in a spiral slide about 5 times before we could take him to the bumper cars for a ride with Vanessa.

Donovan then got to admire the ducks and pond since the event was being held at a golf course.

Last night while I was re-arranging my garage to accomodate a play area for donovan he got interested in "daddy's chopper" He was afraid to touch it and backed off when I told him he could touch it. So I put him on it and he was quite happy.

My workplace

just thought I would share the place where I'm spending my workday at. I sit in an uncomfortable chair infront of these two monitors. I do have a window behind me.

Bathroom Completed

Vanessa and I took on painting stripes in our downstairs bathroom. This is the first time I've tried painting a pattern on a wall. Turned out pretty well but was a lot more laborous than just painting one solid color.
Donovan the Jumper

Donovan started jumping from this cardboard box when we brought it home. He did end up scuffing his knee on the carpet and got his frist scab.

red rock stay

stayed at the red rock again last thursday. the rooms seem bigger this time. probably because of all the crappy hotels weve stayed at since our last stay at red rock. they should have their pool open past 7pm. that was bogus.
