I know lots of people are huge fans of the Suzanne Collins series, The Hunger Games. I am a little behind and alas, I have read only the first so far. Hopefully I will be getting book two from the library shortly. Anyhow, when Trevor and I were recently at the library we were looking at the DVDs and he found the 80s Schwarzenegger film, The Running Man, complete with an I'll be back quote. I had never even heard of it. It has a flavor similar to The Hunger Games, and seems like possibly some inspiration for the series.

Dashiel is a boy who loves his cucumber! I have to share these pictures, because they are so cute! He really is a character! Enjoy!

Fun at the park!

Trevor recently had a day off that happened to be the same day Dashiel and I always go to the park. So since Daddy was able to go with us we decided to try a new park that has lots of water features and I had heard a lot about. At first Dashiel was timid and content to simply watch the other kids, but once he got going with Daddy at his side, he had a blast! I love parks like this. Lots of fun followed by a good nap!

This Johnson Family has had some big changes over the last few weeks. A friend of ours was working in California as a technician as part of a summer sales program and he was being moved to a new area in the middle of July leaving a void and asked Trevor if he wanted to capitolize on the opportunity. So with four days notice, we packed up and moved to Fresno, California to finish up our summer. We are still here for a little while and it has been a great adventure and opportunity. Trevor is working hard six days a week, but still managing to find time with his wife and son.

Dashiel is doing very well. He is getting more and more steady on his feet all of the time as he toddles after Mom and Dad--or ahead sometimes. And occassionally he will surprise us with a new word. He is right on the cusp of talking. He loves dogs, cats, and kids and thankfully there are plenty to entertain him here at our apartment complex. There is a particularly friendly Tabby cat that he has given hugs to. He also loves swimming or perhaps I should say splashing. It is one of his favorite things to do. We have recently found a park that we go to on Fridays. There are always lots of other kids running around that he enjoys watching. There is a really cute stream that has an area specifically for kids to play in which Dashiel loves because there are always about half a dozen kids to splash around with. We usually end up leaving with him in soaked shorts, but he loves it!
