Ohlhoff Olympics

There's been so much going on recently that we've had trouble keeping up with the blog. However, we haven't had any trouble keeping the cameras trained on the boys, so here's all the good stuff we've been up to this February.

There was Sunday night's dinner with Liam, the Harans and the Linders. Henry and Liam decided to test their mettle in the two-boy bobsled race.

Earlier on Sunday we did some shopping and Miller took the wheel.

We also got a nice long visit from Nana earlier this month:

And our first trip to the Childrens Museum on Navy Pier - a great time was had by all. The first Sunday of every month is free admission, so we may go back and check it out again this weekend.

And then there's the boys just being themselves:

And being that cute can be a prety tiring thing... for them

Finally here's a video from Sunday night. The adults were trying to enjoy dinner in the dining room, but there was too much commotion coming from the two diners who had been sequestered in the kitchen, so I decided to investigate.

To The Zoo

Since we're members of the Brookfield Zoo, it makes perfect sense to go there during a cold and blustery day in February as a way to beat the winter blues and get out of the house. Free parking and getting to go inside to warm humid exhibits like "The Swamp" and "Primates of South America" make that cold walk through the parking lot worth it.

Why yes, those are the hindquarters of a tapir down in that pen. Very observant.

A South American monkey mommy and her baby, or the inspiration for the Insane Clown Posse? (These do not have to be mutually exclusive).

Nap time in the car on the way home with one's hat all askew.

He's a very happy little guy. Most of the time.

Henry's Rock 'n' Roll Halftime Show

The Who still have it, according to Henry Jay. He was enthralled by their halftime performance during Super Bowl XLIV. He asked me what they were doing when they came on to play, and I told him, "Rock 'n' roll!"

Well that was all he needed to hear, he latched on to rock 'n roll, grabbed his guitar (a wooden spoon from his play kitchen) and started busting his rock 'n' roll dance moves. He loved Roger Daltrey's harmonica solo, Pete Townshend's windmill guitar (at least I think it was Pete Townshend, at some parts it looked more like Elvis Costello with that hat) and with any luck he'll still love rock 'n' roll tomorrow so Daddy can play him some LP records and Henry Jay can dance like a true rock 'n' roller.
