We went to Eldo over Labor Day weekend, which happened to be Isaac's first road trip. He did great, as expected. When we got there, he had a ball chumming around with his adorable cousin Charlee.
Meanwhile, Alex was honing his t-ball skills with Grammy.
We also went to a fish fry at the Cheshiers. Alex showed Hyleigh how fun trains can be, and then challenged her to a game of "child-friendly" lawn jarts.
One of the highlights of the trip for Alex was getting to sing with Brother Sam, or "Brother Ham", as Alex calls him. Grammy gave Alex a CD of Brother Sam singing Victory Bible Camp classics such as, "My Gal's a Corker", "Little Tommy Tinker", and Alex's personal favorite, "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain". We've listened to that CD no less than a hundred times, so Alex was psyched when we promised him that he'd get to sing with Brother Ham in person. Alex knew most of the words and gestures, and I think Brother Sam got a kick out of it, as well.
