We had a fun morning at the ballpark where Jacob's team was playing their third game of the weekend in a league tournament. Right behind the diamond lies a nice playground area with swings, the jungle-gym, tire swings and the works.

Tire Swing On the way home from the game (they lost 4 to 3 in the bottom of the 6th at a close play at the plate), Chris was moaning and nearly crying from discomfort and nausia after a marathon spin on the tire swing. He spun and spun and spun... until he got sick. He sounded pretty misserable the entire car ride home.

Once we got home, we ate lunch. Color returned to Chris's face with each bite. He was almost finished when we asked if he felt better: "Yeah," he said.

Chris is cool. "Was it worth it?" we asked.

"Oh yeah," he replied.

We added another question, "Would you do it again?"

"Twice," he said with a smile.

Yup, Chris was back to normal - for now. Who knows what he'll do this afternooon.

Max, the toad.

Chris has a new pet - a toad he found outside last weekend.

We did a bit of reasearch and believe it to be a plain American toad. He'll eat just about any bugs - so far we've fed it crickets... and he loves them. You can see the photos of Max the toad below.

Chris lost another tooth.

Chris shows off his great smile.
