Catching up / sleepblogging redux

It's been too long - we've been 'summer busy', if you know what I mean.

I do have a few shots for them Morgantown Warbels especially: here's Colin opening up the Batcave - his favorite gift from his third birthday (next to Grandpa Ferrigan's excavator):
He did eventually get the present open - here he is mid-play while Daddy acts goofy:
A bit of video to say "Thank You!" to everyone in Morgantown:

Thank you all so much for all of the Batman toys - he's really enjoyed them immensely. I mean, hours of play that don't abate any time soon.
On to the sleepblogging redux. Grandpa Ferrigan came up for a visit this past weekend, and so he slept in Colin's bed and Colin slept in Olive's bed. I was a bit concerned about it, because usually, if Olive doesn't have a place to sleep, she ends up kicking *me* out of my spot, and I end up sleeping on the couch downstairs. Plus, I was worried that she'd somehow bother Colin or wake him up, or some such Olive-related typical nonsense.
Turns out I was partially right. Here's what happened:
That's right - our crazy dog decided to go a different way. She decided to use our son as a pillow on "her" bed. To her credit, she figured out a way to climb up into "her" bed without squishing/waking up Colin, and managed to spread her 140lbs out comfortably enough to start sawing logs - without waking Colin or me or Mommy up. I don't know about you, but that falls within the parameters of my definition of "good dog". Watch dog? Not so much, but good dog nonetheless.
The final touch on our revisit to sleepblogging days - last Saturday Mary took the kids to the pool while Grandpa and I looked at cars (Pete Rose edition Camaro, FTW), and Colin had so much fun, he was barely able to stay awake through dinner. Here he is falling asleep before we headed out for Mexican:
I've got video of us waking him up for dinner. It's not terribly exciting, but if you're interested let me know.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay classy!

Tres, Troi, Drei

So, these are probably out of order, but Colin turned three yesterday, and here's some pix and video from the occasion:

First up, later in the evening, Colin's playing with his slot car track:
Another shot of Colin with his track:
We all had hot dogs and Mac 'n Cheese in honor of his birthday.
And here he is eating some of his chocolate cake:
Here's his Lightning McQueen cake for his party:
Rockin' the partay:
Srsly enjoying the turning to drei:
And here he is with a present from Grandma and Grandpa Warbel:
Thank you, Grammie and Grandpa!
Here's some video:
