In lieu of birthday gifts, the boys collected pantry and personal items to donate to the Food Bank. They even helped load and unload the enormous boxes of items with a volunteer. Buzzy said to the guy helping them, "When I'm hungry, I have food. But, some people don't." Just a sec... there's something in my eye...
Next year, when Buzzy turns five (eeek!!) and Newt turns three (double eeek!!), I'll be giving them a choice between 2 or 3 causes to support... Heifer International, perhaps?

We took Buzzy on his first solo horseback ride while we were in Michigan. Was he ever excited! Kept turning around to flash me a big grin and a thumbs up. We had an extensive discussion about listening to mommy and the guide and behaving so he'll be safe. Buzzy was doing awesome... pointing out wild carrot and cabbage moths...
Newtie got to ride shotgun.
20 minutes into the hour long ride, Buzzy seemed really relaxed, but then didn't listen when the guide told him to lean back in his saddle. Well, it was because he had fallen asleep. On the horse. While it was moving. I had to give Newt to the guide and carry Buzzy out.
