This week Anthony got together with some girls he met through an internet dating service.
Meet Cora, Brooklyn, and our newest friend, baby Eloisa.
It's impossible not to fall in love with Brooklyn at first sight.
Cora had open heart surgery just a couple of months ago. Now she's all fixed up and ready to enjoy her summer- what a gal!
We hope the other fellas will join us next time so Anthony has some help fending off the female attention.

We went to the "Brews, Berries, and BBQ" Festival at French Prairie Gardens yesterday. What a fun place! Anthony took part in all the activities- a hayride, big slide, a Pig Barrel Train ride, and of course some strawberry shortcake.
First, a little preliminary research.
Anthony's first encounter with a llama.
But the llama only had eyes for Daddy.
A baby goat!
Daddy fed the goats with a tin can on a string.
Don't you hate when you get sunscreen in your eyes?
Look- a hayride-- Let's go!
I love you, Daddy.
Here we go!
Checking out the works of the tractor.
Then it was time to ride the pig barrel train!
The strawberry festival continues for the next few weekends, so go check it out!

Stuck inside all weekend with a cold and fever, by Tuesday we had developed a pretty bad case of cabin fever. What makes you feel better when you're home sick and feeling yucky? Television!
That's right-- I let Anthony watch his very first episode of Sesame Street.
Anthony was mesmerized. He watched about half the show sitting on my lap on the couch, but then the excitement became too much for him and he had to get closer.
You're probably wondering why there is a banana and a stuffed Elmo next to Anthony on the TV stand. Well, Elmo came on the show and told us all about bananas-- really everything you would ever need/want to know about bananas. So I, in my Mommy guilt about letting Anthony watch television, decided I would take this opportunity to enhance the learning experience for him by bringing out the real-world objects for him to make the connection.
Anthony's reaction was, "Get these things away from me. Can't you see I'm watching television?!"
I probably watched more Sesame Street, Mister Rogers and The Magic Garden than any preschooler in history, and I turned out (mostly) okay, so I think we'll be letting the little guy tune in every now and then.
