Myles celebrated his 4th birthday with family and friends this past weekend. He had a great time playing on the playground with his cousins and then came back to the house for pizza and cake. This year marked the first year that he didn't burst into tears during Happy Birthday. Thank you to everyone who helped him celebrate!!

Wednesday, Kirk and Myles went to a practice round for the Deutsche Bank Golf Championship. Their day started with the VIP treatment when they got to park in the VIP lot with the Ferraris. Myles had a blast playing in the bouncy houses and at the mini golf course. They also got to watch players warm up before heading out on the course. Myles also had his picture taken with Padraig Harrington and Fred Couples (along with Freddies autograph). While Kirk and Myles were in the proshop, Camillo Villegas came in and touched his hat. Unfortunately, Kirk was a little caught off guard standing shoulder to shoulder with Camillo and wasn't able to get a picture with him.
While Myles went golfing with Baampah, Eamon and I went blueberry picking with Dramma. Eamon was like a little baby bird on my back eating blueberries. If you didn't feed him fast enough, he would point and chirp like a little bird. We also picked some peaches while we were there.
Myles, Eamon and I went to visit Dramma and Baampah while Kirk was in Tampa for work. While there we visited Dreat Dramma and Michael; rode the little Indian; worked in the garden; played golf and picked blueberries and peaches.
The boys and I went to the beach toward the end of Hurricane Bill. Thankfully neither of them are too interested in playing in the water because the waves were huge. Myles had fun perfecting his Baywatch run in and out of the water and Eamon worked on covering every square inch of his body with sand.
Myles took swimming lessons at the Portsmouth pool this summer. Although he didn't actually learn how to swim, he did become more comfortable with the water. The class practised using noodles, kickboards and collecting rings. At the end of the 4 week session he received a certificate and some pool toys from his teacher. His biggest area for improvement is going under water.
