New Favorite Chore - Helping wash the green beans!  
I must say that these beans were very thoroughly washed! 
Unfortunately this did not lead to Asher actually eating any green beans for dinner.

As you may have noticed in the last post, Asher thinks it is fashionable to wear rain boots to the fire station...on a sunny day!

He also likes to wear his boots while mowing the lawn...on a sunny day.

It's fun to wear boots while checking out what's in the cooler...on a sunny day.
What luck, there was a big bulldozer in the cooler on this particular day!

Boots are perfect for splashing in the water table...on a sunny day.

Boots also come in handy for backyard bird watching....on a sunny day.

Boots are just right for a morning jog...on a sunny day.

It's fun to wear boots while playing at the park...on a sunny day.

Asher has worn his boots every time he's left the house for the last week despite the fact that the sun has been shining for most of the week!  They're his favorite footwear! 

If you studied the last two pictures closely, you might have noticed his other fashion tip - always leave your onesie unsnapped and untucked, so you can find your belly button at all times.  Not having access to your belly button is completely unacceptable!

A Visit to the Fire Station

Chris and Asher headed to the fire station today to have the firefighters re-install Asher's car seat in its new location.  

As soon as they arrived and took out the car seat, the fire alarm sounded.  It was a dream come true for Asher to get to hear the sirens wailing and to watch the trucks take off with all their lights flashing!  

Much to their surprise, Chris and Asher were left behind in the station all by themselves!  They had fun exploring the station, and even found an ambulance, or a "beep beep" as Asher likes to say.

Luckily, the firefighters eventually returned to install the seat and to give Asher his very own fire hat.  
I can't believe he's not smiling in any of these pictures!
