How Creed Spent His Summer Vacation

Sneaking out of bed and into his parents' bed almost every night
Playing with Play-Doh
Building up his muscles
Blowing giant bubbles
Creating masterpieces
being mysterious
collecting snails after rainstorms

Sitting on the lap of anyone who has time for a good story

Collecting Pixar Cars and driving them for hours at a time

Testing out mom's lipstick to see if it makes good mustaches
relaxing on the couch
discovering that bathtub crayons make better mustaches
making the kitten who lives across the street his new best friend (we won't mention the kitten's name because the kitten belongs to college boys and its name does not mean something nice)
Sharing toys with his new best friend
and trying his new best friend's patience

Getting into messes
Picking up girls at the park (we spent a LOT of time at the Seven Canyons Fountains at Liberty Park)
Fighting Crime
Recovering from Hand, Foot, and Mouth
Finally learning how to ride that trike like the wind
And riding on the back of Dad's bike when his legs got tired
Rooting for the Buckeyes
Cooking all sorts of delicious imaginary things
working on the farm at the Utah State Fair

Raising butterflies
and releasing them
solving mysteries (he thinks that pipe is for blowing bubbles so some mysteries remain to be solved)
driving fire engines

taking lots of trips to the zoo with friends like Piper
and seeing all the new baby animals
and bursting with excitement at every chance to ride the train at the zoo!
I have to say, I think it was a pretty good summer.

Looks like a fun summer! Where did you get that cute kitchen? I want to get one for Sam, but Devin is worried I'll get a pink one. Creed's kitchen is very manly!

Very cute indeed. I love all the memories embodied herein. It was a summer of excitement, best seen in the last picture.

Beautiful photos! But my favorite has to be Larry on the bike. I didn't think I would ever see the day!

I came across your blog about 6 months ago, via a link of a link of a link kind of thing... I know it's kind of "stalkery", but I follow your posts :) I just felt compelled to tell you that I can feel the love that you have for Creed just by looking at your pics. You have a beautiful family and it shows! Best of wishes - April Nunn
