Family Fun...and diapers?

Now that I've got everything unpacked and out where it belongs, I guess I could start posting some of my family fun pictures from this weekend... So, here you go!
Grandma and Grandpa Hart (or as they like to be called: Nana and Poppa) brought this electric piano down on Saturday for me. My mom has had it in her classroom at school, but, she decided that should she ever decide to walk out and never come back she needed to take it home. Since they already have a newer model, they offered me this one. Of course I said yes! I used to play really well, so I'm hoping to brush up a little bit.
Marshy of course loves to push all the different buttons, but has to stop and pose once he sees me with the camera.

Marshall discovered Disneyland Mr. Potato Head (we bought it on our honeymoon almost 3 years ago) while we were unpacking. He likes to wear Mr. Head's hat on his head...
Also, not the only thing he likes to wear on his head. Sound familiar to anyone? He is definitely his father's son! Mike had to help him a little bit, but he got it on there for a few minutes. For those of you who can't tell, that is a clean diaper (emphasis on CLEAN)
And again, still playing with the diaper.... For those of you who have never met my husband, the tall guy in the green shirt who is sitting on the floor is Mike. The short guy in the blue shirt standing on his head is Marshy-marsh.
And again with the diaper! Really, definitely his father's son. He had a hard time keeping it on his head though...I guess he gets the clumsiness from me.
And here we are throwing the clean diaper that has been on his head away. Really, he put it in the laundry hamper. I'm not sure why he thinks the laundry is a garbage can. I find all sorts of trash in there when I do his laundry. Hmmm...

Marshy-marsh putting Mr. Head's hat on daddy's head. Daddy was such a good sport.
Being tickled by Dad. Marshy-marsh tried to "escape" but just got even more tickles.
And then he got put upside down! Marshy-marsh loves hanging upside down. He laughs and laughs and laughs until his face turns red...we aren't sure if it's because of all the blood rushing to his head or all the laughing, but he doesn't seem to mind.
Daddy fixing the hat so that it will stay on Marshy-marsh's head. He is always so interested in what Mike does. They are best friends.
Marshy trying to be like dad and fixing the hat. The yellow thing is a rubber toy that Mike fitted inside the hat to get it to grip to Marshy's head a little better. Of course, Marshy wants to know how it works, so he pulled it out and is now trying to put it back in.
He got a little high centered trying to climb over his airplane. He was stuck like this for a good 3 minutes. We aren't very good parents. We just sat there and laughed and took pictures. Oh well, it wasn't like he was in any danger or anything! He just got a little upset at being stuck, that's all.
He wasn't upset for very long, though, because he fixed himself and ended up kneeling on the airplane. Honestly, this was the first time I've ever seen him voluntarily sit on the thing. I was really surprised, and he seemed to really like it.
Well, he liked it until he got stuck and couldn't get off the airplane. Mom had to step in and save the day! (which is why there is no picture of him getting off...I was on camera duty).
We had a lot of fun playing together, and wearing different things on our heads. Well, Marshy did at least. I held the camera and took pictures, and Mike only wore the hat for a little bit. No diaper wearing for him! Oh how I wish I had that picture. I would post it here right now, even though he might get really mad. If anyone has a copy of that, I would really like one.

Looks like you guys have a lot of fun with the diapers :) That's great you got that piano. That'll be a lot of fun. I think it'd be fun to learn the piano again. Looks like Marshy Marsh has a lot of fun with his dad.

I have that picture, but I think it is on a page in my scrapbook! You can have a copy of the page if you want!

I wish you could get a picture of Marsh with the diaper on his head like his Dad did. That would make such a great scrapbook page. Looks like you are really settling in. Everyone looks happy. Thanks for the pictures. Love them. MUM
