We had a great family outing at the park today. We fished in the pond, and grilled some hamburgers for lunch. Neo rode his bike all around the pond and played with Mom in the playground. I think Charlie enjoyed himself, but he can enjoy himself anywhere.
Neo once again caught more fish than me, but at least this time it was close. We lost count, but at the end we started talking to a Navy veteran who was fishing next to us. He told us that he fished there often and had experimentally found that he caught more fish there on hot dogs than any other bait. He even had a particular brand which seemed to catch more than the others. He let Neo try fishing with some and the bream were taking it before Neo had time to reel in the slack in his line. It was great to talk with him.
Overall, the day was wonderful. Pictures are here.

Neo and I had a great day together this Thursday. Neo was sick the afternoon before, so we weren't comfortable sending him to school even though he was feeling fine.
I decided to use it as an opportunity to help make up for all of the time I have spent working lately, and all of the attention that his been focused on his little brother.
We drove around and found a neat little park. We went shopping and bought stuff to BBQ and some worms to fish with and headed back to the park. We cooked our lunch over the grill (some hamburgers) and had chips on the side and some divinity for dessert. We fished in the pond. Neo caught 6 fish and I caught 1. I wish I could say I wasn't really trying and was spending most of my time helping Neo, but I would be lying. I missed about 10 fish, and Neo only missed 1.
After fishing, we played on the playground and then went to see if any good movies were out. We couldn't find anything so we decided to rent one. We settled on "The Last Mimzy" which we thought was a great movie.
All in all, it was a great day. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera.
But, there are some new pictures of Charlie in his October folder, including this gem, and some pictures of Neo in his Halloween costume in his October folder.

Things are still going well around here. We had visits from my mom and Christian's mom which helped out a ton! Thanks guys! Christian posted a nice thank you note on her blog as well.
Charlie is doing well although he has problems with gas and diaper rash occasionally. I swear he passes wind like a 65 year old man sitting in a recliner watching sports does.
I got sick this morning with some sort of bug that is going around. Now we are doing our best to keep me away from the baby, but I'm afraid he might pick it up since I was walking with him last night. We'll see.
Charlie's October folder has more pictures. Also, some pics of maw-maw playing the Wii with Neo are in Neo's October folder.
Also, Happy Birthday Neo!!! Neo's birthday party is coming up and he is very excited.
