Earthquake and Hurricane

Woodbridge - In one week Ryan experienced two major natural phenomenons, an earthquake and hurricane.  The earthquake on Tuesday measured 5.8 on the Richter Scale.  It hit just before 2:00 in the afternoon.  That just happened to be nap-time at school for Ryan.  He slept through the whole thing.  We even had a pretty big aftershock on Wednesday night, which he slept through again.

On Saturday, Ryan experienced his first hurricane.  Hurricane Irene came ashore as a category 1 storm on Friday night.  By late Saturday morning she arrived to our area.  We received a lot of rain and a little wind.  All in all, it was nothing for us.

This was our earthquake damage.

This was our hurricane damage...just a few blown leaves.

Packing Ryan

Woodbridge - Mommy and Daddy got a new suitcase for vacation and Ryan packed himself.  He is ready to head to Mickey's house.

Dream Vacation

Alexandria - At school this week Ryan and his class talked about vacations.  When the teachers asked Ryan were he would like to go on his dream vacation, he said he wanted to go to his grandfather's house.  He didn't specify which one, but his teacher drew him the picture.

A Night at the Fair

Manassas - Saturday night we did a family night at the Prince William County Fair. Ryan started in the 4H barn and did bunches of crafts; he even got Elmo painted on his face (that lasted about 20 minutes). We enjoyed some fair food for dinner, played a game and then Ryan rode rides. Even though it started raining, we had a great time. 

Pool Play

Woodbridge - Mommy and Daddy took Ryan to the pool this weekend.  We started in the baby pool, but Ryan wanted to move onto the big pool with Daddy.  He splashed and kicked and jumped into the pool.  He had a great time.

Yay Wegmans

Woodbridge - Every Saturday we go to Wegmans to do our grocery shopping.  It is a very exciting thing for Ryan.

Ryan's First Blizzard

Woodbridge - On Saturday night we went on to a family date night.  We went to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings, walked around Ikea and we got blizzards.  After reading the list of several options, Ryan chose an M&M Blizard.  He didn't eat much, but he enjoyed every bite he had.
