Fun pictures as of late

It's root beer time!!! 

My guys. :)))

Sweet boy in plaid! 

I love sitting in the back seat with my boy. 

This was one happy guy! My mom sent him "steak money" for Father's Day and he was very glad to spend some of it. 

"Loving" on Dad...

One cool cat! 

I worked Sunday the 22nd and my two guys enjoyed the day together! 

Then, when I got home, we worked on some sitting. The little guy is finally getting it DONE after those ole ear infections! 

Oh, and this guy got to taste some yummy pizza crust

Uncle Jeff and Aunt Kelly brought this a month ago and Mason is still loving it! He can now put the ball into the tower. Smart boy! 

Happy boy! 

Upside down baby boy! 

Bath time! 

Trying to get into the fridge. :)

Just a little sitting practice 

Giving Mom a free pedicure. ;-)

A little FaceTime fun with GiGi. 

Apparently water from my bottle tastes better. I hear this never ends. HAHA!

Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth: And Other Pop Culture Correspondences {A Book Review}

I really enjoyed the book, Dear Luke, We Need To Talk, Darth: And Other Pop Culture Correspondences. In the book the author, John Moe,  riffs on many areas of pop culture. Everything from, as the title suggests, Darth Vader writing letters to Luke trying to explain that he is his dad, to the personal journal of the shark from Jaws.

Several things that I enjoyed about the book are the breadth of what he references. He writes about everything from the very popular {Star Wars} to the obscure {Super Bowl Halftime Show Proposals}. The book is easy to pick up and read in short spurts and the range of comedy goes from dry, straight-faced humor to bordering on literary slapstick.

My biggest dislike about the book is that towards the end of the book Moe begins to reuse joke formats.  This made some of the latter pieces not as funny as the earlier ones because once you realized the format, you knew right where the jokes were headed.

Overall this is a very humorous book. If you like pop culture and want to be entertained, you will likely enjoy this from start to finish

Check out the Author Bio for John Moe.

**I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review. **
