FC: The adventures of Simon Oliver Sharples 2010
1: A typical day in Simon's life definitely includes airplanes of some shape or size. Daddy is the best buddy to share this love with! Dad painted him his very own custom airport on a big piece of plywood complete with an air traffic control tower. | daddy's airport | Hill AFB museum | co-pilots
3: Simon loves planes, TRAINS and automobiles, so we took a short ride on the Front Runner train with the Dansies to Ogden to visit the train museum. He was most fascinated by the "ding dings" and model trains.
4: Simon is finally brave enough to go down a slide by himself! He loves to go to the park and on a warm day we can find some of his friends there, too. | PLAY | Happy boy!
5: Learning how to hold Emmy's cockatiel Buddy was a big accomplishment. He is usually very gentle with him except for the times when he sprayed him with window cleaner and sunscreen :( | SiMoN
6: Simon spent a day at Brigham Young University with Mommy, Connor and Emmy eating ice cream on the quad, bowling at the Wilkinson Center and exploring the Bean animal museum.
7: Simon went camping for the first time this year. He loved roasting hot dogs with Daddy and exploring the great outdoors. He even tried his hand at fishing. Sleeping in between mom and dad in the tent was an adventure! | Time
8: Simon's favorite time of day is when Daddy gets home from work because that's when he gets to wrestle him on the bed. Simon loves to be "rough" on Dad, but never really hurts him. Dad puts up just enough of a fight for Simon to think it's real. Simon likes to yell "No es-cap-eh!" (escape) | WRESTLEMANIA
9: Playdates! Simon has a regular playgroup that he gets together with once a week. This is something both he and mommy look forward to! | James Bunker | Simon Oliver | Matthew Kirkham
10: Simon did a lot of hiking this summer. The longest hike was to Cecret Lake in Albion Basin. He was such a trooper and made it all the way to the lake and back!
11: HIKING ENSIGN PEAK
12: Simon spent some quality time in the garage with Daddy fixin' cars. His Handy Manny tool set came in handy on his very own Mustang. | Big boys drive Big toys
14: USS MIDWAY
15: FUTURE PILOT: CDR. SIMON SHARPLES
16: Playing in the ocean at Crystal Cove beach in San Diego.
18: A trip to Idaho Falls for an air show was one of the highlights of Simon's 3rd summer. The B-2 Spirit stealth bomber made an appearance and the Blue Angels were the main attraction.
19: Simon's first trip to the dentist went surprisingly smooth. He didn't kick the dentist like he told me he would before we went. His favorite part was wearing the cool sunglasses. | Say "Aah"
20: Simon experienced the Great Salt Lake for his first time this year. The swarms of brine flies and the strong smell didn't bother him in the least. He and Emmy walked out quite a ways to see how deep they could go without getting their pants wet but it never seemed to get any deeper. | making
21: W | h | e | e | l | e | r | FARM
22: School Days | Simon started not one but TWO preschools this year. Two after-noons a week he goes to Murray Community preschool, or the Orange Room, and two mornings a week he goes to a mommy-taught co-op preschool with his neighborhood friends. His friend Matthew is in both preschools with him. Other than a few days of hesitation at the first, Simon looks forward to going to school every day.
23: Simon loves having co-op preschool at our house where mommy becomes "Miss Kelly" or "teacher". He likes to greet each friend as they come in the door with a "Welcome to Piggy Preschool!" at the top of his lungs. | Matthew, Kambri, Simon, Quinci, Victoria, Carson and Coco
24: Once again, Simon has learned that he is breakable when he fell off the counter and broke his elbow. He spent a night at Primary Children's Hospital waiting to have surgery to fix it. It was another great adventure and Simon was so brave through it all. | Simon's nurse is Jill Stevens, former Miss Utah! | He took a LONG time to come out of the anesthesia from surgery
25: When Simon got his cast on, Daddy was the first to make his mark. He drew a Crusader, one of Simon's favorite planes. He was so excited to show it to everyone. . | OUCH
26: TRICK | or | TREAT? | COUSINS | SIMON a.k.a. Jack Sparrow
27: Simon attended his very first wedding this year when his Aunt Melissa married his new Uncle Nick. He brought along an airplane to keep him entertained, but that really wasn't needed because he had so much fun dancing after the ceremony. He looked so handsome!
28: Simon wanted to make sure Santa knew exactly which airplanes he was hoping to get for Christmas, so he had Daddy draw them. And it worked!
29: all tuckered out | Simon plays hard, and sleeps hard. He has to recharge for his next adventure!
