when I started this blog five years ago, I was a pet sitter and the name animal-crackers made sense. now I'm a stay-at-home-dad and freelance writer, but rather than confuse everyone by getting a different blog, it's just easier to keep posting things here.

Josh got his hair cut today.

Sheriff Josh

It was Behold the Wonder That is Texas Week recently at Brentwood. There was the Cowhand Cookout with a real cowboy, leather branding and a guy named Cookie who served beans and hot dogs. And there was the Texas Roundup, where all the kindergarteners sang about how much awesomer Texas is than everywhere else.

Here's Josh in his cowboy get-up. He's got himself a homemade sheriff's badge.

And here he is with one of his friends.

And here's a slightly blurry picture of Josh on stage.

Happy Birthday Josh!

Josh turned 6 last week, and on Saturday we had a bowling party.

Everyone had a great time. Except Dylan, who became obsessed with the video arcade.

After a grueling 10 frames, it was time for the cupcakes.

Josh's friends enjoyed the cupcakes.

And Josh got his very own bowling pin.
