Swimming: We go to the Duck pond and splash pads and local pools a few times a week and live up every minute of the beautiful but oh so short summers we get here. He is a water baby and is happiest there, but he always drinks the water and I haven't been able to get him to stop. No Giardia so far at least....
Puzzles: I bought this cheap little thing from Ikea and Winston loves it, just stacks and unstacks and restacks every day.
Swings: After our runs in the morning we usually go to the park and Winston could literally swing for hours, although I can never last for longer than 45 minutes of "underdog" before my brain turns to mush.
He's started watching "ball" (baseball) with Evan and cheers and claps anytime the crowd makes some sort of collective noise, regardless of the team or whether it was good or bad. He now appreciates soccer as well thanks to the World Cup and would rather watch sports than most any other movie or show.

Bee Sting: We went to a swim party for Evan's work and a bee landed on Winston's belly. Before I could shoo it away he picked it up like what the heck is this? and Got a solid sting in the thumb. Ten minutes of dramatic flailing and panic and then he was over it.
