Cowboy up

Recently, we were invited to a party that had pony rides. Before we left the house, I asked Casey if he wanted to go ride pony's. He said, "Pony Daddy not pony's; there is only one pony". Nice that my three year old is correcting my English... teaching me the difference between singular and plural!

Casey found a sombrero.

Thanks to Uncle Ed, the Wang boys can ride as one. We recently inherited Uncle Ed's trail-a-bike. It's a nifty contraption that attaches to a normal bike and allows tandem riding. Add an additional child seat mounted up front, and we have transportation for more occupants than a Smart car. The riding was a little challenging; the added mass and irregular weight distribution created some instabilities. Stupid me chose a path that included a decent incline, so I burned my quads trying to pump us all up the hill. Alas, the maiden voyage was a success, not to mention a hit... Casey now requests to ride 'The Big Bike'

Big Day, Huge... Historic

D-day. June 6th, 1944. Huge day in World War II. Allied troops invaded the beaches of Normandy, France. On very close to the 68th anniversary date of this historic event (June 8th, 2012), we had a historic splash-down in the Wang household. CASEY POOPED IN THE POTTY! For the first time ever! I am in no way trying to compare the significance of these two events; one arguably altered the course of history. Casey dropping a deuce in the potty is definitely reason to celebrate, but there most likely wont be any victory parades celebrating his feat. He did however, earn 5 'money' for his 'efforts'... Now, if I could find someone to pay ME each time I pooped... Another milestone in the adventures of Casey potty training.

Posing next to his accomplishment.
Holding up five fingers to count his payday!
Putting his hard earned money into his piggybank.
