The best way to start off a vacation at Hilton Head is a visit to the Salty Dog! Isaac was clearly happy to be there, and Noah topped off the evening with two of his favorite things - live guitar music and ice cream. Ahh...vacation! Here's a few more pictures.

Yes, the Electrasol cans are still around! Noah still plays these drums every day. He has his fancy electronic drum set, but he prefers to play "old school" most of the time - cans and chop sticks. He's a purist.
The clang of drums ring through the house throughout the day. Noah spends a lot of time figuring out different rhythms and trying to repeat rhythms in the songs he hears - mostly songs from church and from They Might Be Giants. It's interesting to listen to what he's doing, although I think I've also developed the ability to tune out the clanging in order to preserve my sanity. It's interesting that a lot of the time when Noah plays drums, Isaac likes to ring bells or bang his hand on something too.

Matt was feeding Isaac his dinner when Noah somehow fell out of his chair. We were both helping Noah when we looked over at Isaac and saw this! Matt said, "Who's minding the store?" and it was so funny to see Isaac having such fun with his food while we weren't paying attention.

Isaac has created his own obstacle course! He loves to crawl under the exersaucer and the coffee table. Sometimes he just crawls through on his way to another destination, and sometimes he hangs out under there like it's his own little baby fort.

Isaac loves to wave! He waves "hi" and "bye," and if he gets excited enough, he'll wave with both hands. We can carry on a whole conversation of waving and saying "ah!" But, the best wave is when Daddy comes home from work and Isaac gets excited and waves "hi!"

I got this shot of the boys while we were waiting for Noah's swim lesson to start. We take the stroller to the pool and wheel it right up to a table where we eventually eat lunch after the lesson. Noah is giddy about his swim lessons and he has learned so much this summer. We are so proud of him!
