Good Night Seattle

Today, Antonio went on an airplane with mommy and Pooh. It was time for us to head to Seattle to visit the family for the long weekend.And flying First Class is just as good as always, this time showing Cars!
And after a long flight, Antonio wanted to get out to RUN so we had to go to Elijah's house. And Elijah's back yard....

And, climbed the wall...
Followed the leader...
And the sand table...

But most of all Antonio just wanted to LOVE Elijah - over and over!

It is going to be a fun weekend.

Kind of Like Funny

Antonio discovered his underwear drawer today and that meant he discovered that there were big kid underpants in there. So like good parents we try to explain that when he pees and poops in the potty he can wear them.

So logic said, lets go pee in the potty. And then after successfully peeing in the potty he demands his big kid pants, in spite of the fact it was bath time.

He couldn't have been prouder. So tonight he is asleep with underpants, on top of his diaper of course. But the incentive is there and he is excited about it!
And, Antonio has entered a great new phase of "no it is not" to everything he doesn't agree with or like. Jeff thinks it is really cute. Deb thinks it is getting old. Ah, two.

But, best of all, Antonio still has the best quotes. Like "he's kind of like funny" when asked if Daddy is funny...and we all agree.

Happy Father's Day

Today was Father's Day and since Antonio has a book about Froggy going golfing with daddy, we decided to take daddy golfing.
Daddy gave some pointers....

But in the end Antonio said, "really why don't you just throw the ball in the hole?"

The best part were all the secret "holes" that popped the ball out in different places. This one entertained him for a long time.

All in all, getting in 18 holes before 11am - with a 9:30 tee off - the best round of golf ever!
And as if that weren't enough, Antonio made Daddy a special present at school.
One of our favorite things about school is certainly the wonderful and thoughtful gifts that come home from our boy for mommy and daddy!

Happy Father's Day!

Mo Mo

A few years ago cousin Preston became obsessed with Mo-Mos. And thanks to Antonio's Grandma, he also became obsessed with wearing Mo-Mo shirts everyday....well of course we all know what that means. Two years later, it is Antonio's turn to wear all the Mo-Mo shirts.

Funny thing is this is just a small selection of the overwhelming wardrobe of Mo-Mo attire. Thanks cousin Preston!

Wait, now Grandpa and Grandma are here!

Antonio has had a busy couple weeks of family visits! Exciting and fun for this little boy. Just three days after Mamma and Bonk left, Grandma and Grandpa came to town for a visit.

And YES he was very excited to see them too....

They got to see the new house and play with all of Antonio's toys.

We had to keep Grandmpa and Grandpa busy so we had a lot of field trips. We went to the trains at Travel Town. Grandpa had a great time, so did Antonio and Grandma...but I think Grandpa had the most fun.
Then Deb took them to the "car show" at Bob's where they got to relive their Glory Days....The Bel Air

Antonio would call this one "Milton"
Grandma said this is her favorite...

And Grandpa found his parents......
Then, on Saturday it was time for the zoo. Antonio loved showing Grandma and Grandpa all the animals and it had been a long time since they had been to the zoo.

This one is really LOUD...but Jeff's favorite...

And this was Antonio's favorite animal of the day - the peacock. He is still talking about it...

The visit came to an end too quickly but everyone had a great time!

Mamma and Bonk are here

Thursday brought new visitors for Antonio, Mamma and Bonk. They came for the weekend and to celebrate's Bonk's birthday! Antonio couldn't have been happier to see them.

He took them to all the hot spots!

It was Bonk's birthday too which meant, oh yes, cake! And Miss Becky came to the party too!

And Bonk taught Antonio something very important....."I want to watch Golf" - "Tiger Woods puts the ball into the hole"
And that is how the next Rodgers golfer was created.

Days later Antonio has been enjoying his new book Mamma brought for him. In fact, he is now acting out the book at the park!

This kid is a Rodgers boy - golf and reading are his blood!

Daddy Scott Rodgers

For no other reason than it made me smile, this video is so funny.....

Point 1 - Jeff is blowing bubbles and doing pretty well. If you ask Antonio he still needs a lot of practice.

Point 2 - Jeff has A LOT of hair. We all know that isn't true.

Point Z - Jeff is sticking out his tongue as he concentrates to get his hat back on...ah, some things never change.
