touch the trucks

We went to Touch-A-Truck. It's a place where you touch trucks. And climb all over them and pretend to drive them.  Here it is in action:

(Ah, yes, it was Dr. Seuss's birthday so Dash was still dressed like the Cat in the Hat and Grey got to wear his pajamas to school... and this!)

five-and-a-half

IMG_7374e
Hi! I'm Grey! Today I'm five and a half years old!

My favorite thing in the whole world is being silly. Acting silly, saying silly words, naming silly names, making silly sounds, thinking up silly situations, and laughing about it all. It's actually become an issue at school. I used to be super well behaved in school but then, as if with a flick of a switch, I let all the silly out. Whee, there it goes! But Mom has given me lots of incentives to behave and I've been acting more appropriately the last several weeks.

My other fancies are Mario and candy. I could talk your ear off about Super Mario Odyssey and the cool things you can do in the game. And I will take every opportunity to ask you for a treat.

I've been getting more and more brave. I even did a dance class with a performance and I really gave it my all! Some things still make me nervous, like talking to people I don't know, but I've been trying.

I also love being with my family. As much as I like to push buttons (or dislike having my buttons pushed), playing games with them is one of my preferred activities. I love to show them the neat things I do and to have them laugh at my silly antics. And I'm quick to share my love of them all. Though I'm also often heard saying, "I love everybody in the whole world!"

Happy half birthday to me!

Stock Show

IMG_7177e
The weekend of my birthday the Stock Show was up in Denver, so up we went. Along with the rest of the state, it felt like.


IMG_7114e
Some areas had kid activities, like this design-a-horse station.

Or this cowboy training area. Yeehaw!

But of course, there were a lot of animals to see!

Some of the cows got a serious salon treatment- a full color, cut, and blowdry!

All fluffed!

I think these guys are parading au naturel, however.

Now a few up-close-and-personal visits.

Nose to nose.

What a lovely nose it is. And a lovely birthday activity!
