Some cute Zach-isms:

- "I need to fix my (pretend) carousel. I need to buy more wood. I need to get gopher wood, because it's the strongest." Sure thing! :=)

- Zach enjoys his first two official sleep-overs (besides sleeping over at Grammy & Grampa's) - first at Mia's house, then she at ours! Both kids are *super* troopers, no homesickness (and they're only 4½!), and stay up yammering & reading & playing in their room until all hours! (9:30pm, which is late for these two! :=) )

- Zach uses "Be right back" as both a statement ("I'll be right back!") or as a command ("Be right back, Mommy!") :=D Sure, why not?!

- Zach & Daddy were talking about going up to Grammy & Grampa's, which turned to talk about Grampa being an angel, which prompted Daddy to ask, "Do you miss Grampa?" Z: "Yeah, but I'll see him again after I die." D: "Yeah, you're right." Z: "I'll see him and Dr. Seuss." :=>

- Another time, as Zach & Daddy were walking toward the Williamsburg resort's pool, they found themselves walking behind a man sporting a Speedo swimsuit. Zach asked Daddy, "Why is that man wearing women's underpants?" :=D

- Zach still loves to play fair (carnival). The pretend rides on which he invites Daddy & Mommy to ride (ever the carny/operator, Zach is) include the Slow Fastmobile, a roller coaster, Wobbly Snobbly Silly Machine, Gravitron, a carousel Polar Bear Express and of course the Super Trooper!
