As you can see, we couldn't keep Oliver out of Granddad and Groovy's pool. At two years old he's diving head-first, running and jumping and floating on his back from one end of the pool to the other. Isn't he a fun guy?


Talking heavy machinery with Granddad.

We celebrated my birthday (a little belated because of when the visit fell) one evening (though by the pictures, it's hard to tell if it's my cake or Oliver's). :)





Cute cousin Chloe was SO excited to play with Oliver!

And, yes, this is the best we could do - two out of three ain't bad!
