Child of God

Phoenix just finished singing Castle Song and then he started singing I am a Child of God. We thought it was really sweet. He then proceeded into what will also be a big hit, "The Chair Song."
Here's a little serenade for our blogging audience. The actual song is much longer, but we cut it down to a mere 42 seconds. Phoenix really enjoyed singing it.

July 4

Somehow Phoenix has enough pull at the railroad museum to get a spot in the fourth of July parade. They really only reserve the parade train for "upper level members" but Phoenix goes to the station so much they decided to give him a spot. So we decorated our stroller and walked along beside Phoenix inside the parade car. I do have pictures I hope to be posting soon. Phoenix was dressed as a conductor with overalls and red bandana and a conductor's blue and white striped hat. He really enjoyed the parade and so did we, although for 10 a.m. it was very hot. My parents and sister and brother in law came to watch also. That's our latest!
