People of Riverfest

I met the Admiral Windwagon Smith tonight at the opening of Wichita's annual River Festival. He was cool and all, but he's no corn on the cob. And if the shirtless fellow in the background gives you pause, don't worry, he fits right in

Dancing with myself

I've taken a real liking to my shadow lately. What's not to like about a second version of me?

1000 days

Normally, bed jumping is frowned upon, but Dad made a brief exception tonight. This marks the 1000th entry for "Helen of Wichita," and that was reason enough to jump for joy. I'm 1000 days old today. Can you believe it?
Dad says the time between this picture, and a little girl jumping on the bed has been as fast as a blink of the eye. Where did all that time go?

Dinner at the fais do-do

Dad cooked up some cajun goodness tonight. There was dancing afterwards.

A new set of wheels

The best part about this bicycle buggy, courtesy of Noah and his family, is that it requires no pushing or pulling on my part. All I have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Camping with kids

There's an entire Fall River campground for me to explore. Instead, I want to play in the back of the truck, which I could do in my own driveway at home.

Another guest narrator

I love it when Uncle Tony comes to visit. He does the best voices when we read books together.

Goldi-Helen and the two chairs

After trying out both, I think the little pink chair is just right.

Whatever was happening on the stage of the Orpheum Theatre wasn't interesting enough to take my attention away from these two Barbies.

The ups and downs of modeling

I got a job modeling shirts for the upcoming Wichita River Festival. When it came to running towards the camera to show off the Tot Trot t-shirt, I pretty much rocked it. When it came to jumping in the air with other kids at the count of 3, well... not so much.

A hoppin' good time

While playing at the park, I came across a toad. He hops. I hop.

Tiny Tootins

I went over the Aunt Jaime and Uncle Carter's tonight to meet their four foster kitties. I wasn't sure what to think at first, but I soon decided there's nothing cuter than two-week-old kittens.

Blue in the face

The question is, when I'm drawing with chalk on the driveway, how much ends up on the driveway and how much ends up on my face?

Dress Up

I like it when I get to dress up with the big kids. I fit right in with Sasha and Monica.

Music critic

I like "dancing music," and I'm pretty picky about it. I specifically prefer dancing music sung by a female I refer to as a "mommy" singer. Everybody get down!

Edible Art

My first experience eating sushi was such a tasty one that I just had to have more. And a visit to the restaurant netted me this adorable panda bear carved from an orange.

Wacky Wednesday

Dad says he's going to go wacky if he has to read "Wacky Wednesday" one more time.

Automatic sprinklers = automatic fun

When it gets really hot this summer, I know exactly how I'll stay cool.

21st century dentistry

The cool headphones and "Dora the Explorer" playing on the big screen television above me makes teeth cleaning a breeze.

My mommy and her mommy

Happy Mother's Day!

Hoop dreams

No official swimming lessons today meant I could practice my dunking skills.

Muffins with Mom

This is becoming an annual tradition.

Brushing up

I have a dentist appointment next week. I sure hope Dr. Walker tells me my teeth are in great shape.

Nosy neighbor

I'm supposed to be eating dinner. Instead, I'm interrupting Jack and Sheree, who are trying to do yardwork.

Cumbersome cutlery

I'm working on using a knife and fork to cut my food. Maybe I should just try using a knork next time.

Dinner al fresco

I really love eating outside on the back porch. Always have, always will.

Get that ladybug!

While helping Mommy plant flowers, I found the ladybug so fascinating that I didn't want her to get away.

Stalling tactics

Sometimes, when I don't feel like going to bed, I suddenly have additional needs. I need water, or milk, or a trip to the bathroom, or another book, or another hug. Who can say no to a face like this?

Big appetite

Maybe I should have ordered a medium.

Mayday! Mayday!

I got pelted by sleet and snow on the way into school this morning. It's May 2nd, for goodness sake! Here's a reminder of what it's supposed to look and feel like on May 2nd.

Performance art

Spaghetti is tasty, but that's hardly my favorite thing about it.

Late Spring

Spring has been coming along slow in Kansas, thus limiting my playground time. Today, however, was just how I like it.
