Brandon and Bailey are enjoying their summer "vacation" off from school. Brandon's been swimming everyday (when it's not raining) and he's already developed quite a tan and his blond hair is turning whiter every day.
We're looking forward to our week of vacation in July (camping with the Woods and spending the weekend at Salt Fork with the Cox side of the family).
Brandon is anxiously awaiting his 8th birthday and is already starting his "wish list". I thought I'd post it in case anyone is looking for gift ideas. He's traded in his Gamecube system for a DS (this is like a handheld Gameboy, only wider) and is asking for a number of DS games, including:
Super Mario Bros.
Big Brain Academy
Over the Hedge
Brain Age Train Your Brain
Spyro Shadow Legacy
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
FIFA Street 2
You should be able to get these games at any big box retailer (Walmart, Meijers, etc.) He'd also like "a little bit of clothes (size 8), money and toys (anything age appropriate for boys)" He also just purchased an iPod shuffle (after saving up all year), so he could use any accessories for it (like a case, graphics skin, or armband holder, etc.)
Hope you enjoy our new blog...I hope to keep this updated as much as possible.
