Climb the Highest Mountain

January 17, 2010

I went on a little expedition today.  I’ve been working on my mountain climbing skills for the last week or so.  Seeing as we don’t have many mountains in the flatlands of central Illinois I’ve had to settle for our stairs.  I started slow but I’ve really hit my stride in the last day or two.  Today I made it all the way to the summit of Mt. Ourbasementstairs.  It was trecherous but the view from the top was spectacular (and the yogurt melt trail snacks weren’t bad either).

Here are some of my journey highlights:

#10 Swings, Slides and Everything Else

January 1, 2010

For my final 10 for 10 post, recapping a few  highlights from the past few months (mainly the ones that have the best video/pics) I thought I’d just show you a few fun clips of me playing.  That’s right.  I’m getting old.  I can play now.  I know, I know.  I probably shouldn’t get too cocky.  I’ve only been to a playground a couple of times but I can tell already…I’m going to be good.  Of course, I’ve been good in my own swing for a long time now:

But late this fall my horizons were broadened to include all kinds of other fun playground paraphernalia.  I’ve tried several other types of swings, some slides and lots of other fun stuff. 

Dear Local Playgrounds,

Look out this spring.  The Jack Man is coming for you and you’ll never be the same again!

#9 Chef Jack

Like I’ve said before, there isn’t really much that I like more than eating. And I’m not too picky either. It can be anything from day old cheerios I find on the floor to the finest selections from Gerber, I love it all.

Because I love food so much I made a trek into the kitchen to see what I could discover and I found some awesome stuff! Apperently we have this stuff called tupperware. I know it’s technically not edible but I’ve really enjoyed chewing on it all the same. I just hope they don’t start making me do the dishes!
