Summer 2010

One of the highlights of summer time for the Wood family is going to the pool.  I learned early on while dating Charlie that all of the Woods LOVE the water.  Isaac is no exception!  We spend most of our Saturdays during the summer months enjoying the Woodbridge pools.  We also signed Isaac up for swimming lessons through our neighborhood association.  It's kind of a silly little class because it only lasts for two weeks and they mostly focus on having the kids jump in the pool, putting their face in the water, and kicking their legs (all things that Isaac does on his own anyway).  I think next summer we will start him in more regular lessons that move up with his skill level.  Anyway, at least he had fun!  

 Isaac & his friend Hudson - Singing the "Little Speckled Frogs" song

Earlier in the summer a friend of mine gave Charlie & I her box seats for an Angel's game.  We enjoyed it so much that we decided to go back a month or so later and take Isaac.  This time we were up in the nose bleed seats instead of the box, so we didn't enjoy the game quite as much, but Isaac had a blast and it was perfect to let him run around a bit.  Isaac is still talking about the baseball game, and whenever we drive anywhere near the stadium he always points out the big "A" and get's so excited.  We will definitely have to go back!

Last but not least, I have to post a few pictures from Disneyland.  Our passes were actually blacked out for most of the summer, but we were able to go back in August and September until they expired.  It was fun to see Isaac finally start to have an opinion about which rides he wanted to go on.  And he discovered a new favorite: the Autopia cars.  He's a terrible driver but the more he crashed, the more he laughed and loved it.  I could only hold out so long before taking the wheel!  

Another favorite - the Tea Cups

Both of us really like the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.  I probably need to chill out a bit,  but I get pretty competitive with this ride.  I get really annoyed when Isaac turns our car all around and throws off my aim. He used to just sit and watch in awe, or use the controller to turn us around and around, but eventually he figured out how to use the gun too.  As you can see in the second picture, he began to take this ride very seriously - just like his mother.  Love the concentration here!
