Maryland Science Museum Visit in Baltimore (Inner Harbor)

Brielle, with her tech assistant (Mommy), is doing some research and experimenting at the water stations.

Christian is helping Brielle with her experimentation but soon left the water stations to play with trains because of his dislike of getting his sleeves wet.

Avery was thoroughly engaged in the water stations and made sure he visited every part of the stations. He enjoyed making fountains and building dams.

Avery and Christian are creating a water funnel. They enjoyed visiting the many stations that create scientific phenomenon.

The all time favorite part of the museum was none other than the dinosaur exhibits. Here the boys share the stage with one of their favorites (Mr. Triceratops).

Christian's Christmas Song(s)

video

Christian wanted to practice a Christmas song for us and he also shows some of his moves.

Christmas Activity or Inactivity?

Avery and Christian are getting ready to open gifts. Needless to say both were very excited about this opportunity.

A nap is clearly required after a day of Christmas excitement and the food that goes along with it. Kerri and her parents are getting the power nap in early!!

Avery, Christian and Connor (cousin) are testing their technological savy by using a Nintendo DS. It appears they are doing well from their expressions.

Brielle and Kerri are enjoying some playtime (this was before the nap above) - Mommy got tired out before Brielle. This is a common parental problem for Mommy and Daddy.


Pre Christmas Activities

Brielle is getting ready to eat some "real" food since she is now entering that stage of her life. She is all smiles about the menu.

Fun with the cousins (see below)

Fun with cousins continues (see below)

The three celebration photos are of a party with the cousins to celebrate Jesus' birthday. We just wanted to reinforce the true meaning of Christmas with our kids.

We also had some gaming fun with Mr. Mouth. Brielle liked one of the game attachments more than the game but regardless it was still a fun event.
Avery and Christian are showcasing Avery's Christmas diorama from school. Kerri and Avery worked hard on that project!

Halloween

The crew is getting ready to go trick or treating (Avery was Mr. Skeleton, Christian was the Red Power Ranger and Brielle was a Princess). Brielle fell asleep while we were going door to door (She went from being a Princess to Sleeping Beauty in a matter of minutes).

Sleeping Beauty awakens!!

The Three Lives of Brielle (Sounds Like a Soap Opera?)

Sleepy Brielle - Brielle is basking in the slumber of a sound sleep. We like to spend time looking at her when she is asleep.

Attentive Brielle - She enjoys playing with her toys, taking in her surroundings, and talking to her parents.

Feeding Brielle - OOPS!! We can't show you the other life because I don't think Mommy would appreciate being seen like that on the blog!?

Christian's Birthday

Christian is getting ready to open his presents as Avery and Brielle watch with anticipation!

Kerri and I had everything ready for when Christian got up in the morning. He (and his brother) were surprised by the decorations.

Here is Christian in his Red Power Ranger costume (it was a present but will also double as Halloween apparel). He could not wait to get it on and give it a test run.

Daddy is helping Christian get his costume off. Kerri thinks he looks like a race car driver or motocross racer in this outfit - maybe this is foreshadowing?

Here is the birthday boy with his Power Ranger cake! It is hard to believe he is four already.

More KinderFrick Action

Avery is wondering where all the cereal went!!

Christian is throughly enjoying his apple - "Very Tasty - Daddy"

The boys are focused on watching a dinosaur video while catching up on their liquid retention (hence the water pouches).

Baby Brielle is enjoying having a conversation with her dad about how her day has gone. Given her expression - it probably was a great day!

Children At Play

Big brother Avery is enjoying the company of his sister. This is a daily event for him - he just loves Brielle!!

Christian is field testing the springs in the furniture as he pretends to be a Red Power Ranger (his favorite Power Ranger - check out the shirt). Oh by the way, the furniture also becomes a race track (notice the cars in his hands).

Avery is pointing out one of his favorite dinosaurs from the project wall in the house. He likes to read and talk about dinosaurs. I am a bit surprised he is not pointing to the T-Rex below his arm. He comments frequently about how and what the T-Rex is eating in that particular picture.

The Frick Brothers and Sister Too!

The boys are on their way to soccer practice with Brielle in tow. Avery really enjoys his sister and entertains her frequently.

Christian is giving Brielle a tour of the soccer field while big brother, Avery, is practicing.


As you can see, Christian's skill at getting a positive response is evident in Brielle's smile.

Brielle Hope Frick and The Frick Brothers

Here is Brielle enjoying a nice rest on Mommy and Daddy's bed. She is enjoying her pink attire.


Here is Brielle giving us the serious, "I'm ready to be fed" face. The bouncy seat isn't quite doing the job at this point!


Christian is attempting to show his sister his signature ping pong moves so she can take it to the next level when it is time!!


Let us not forget Avery, who even in the summer time, is being an avid learner. We have been working with him so he is prepared for first grade in September. I think he is more excited about wearing his "Big Brother" shirt than doing his work.

Avery the Angler



It looks like Avery is going to be an avid sportsman (with the help of Pop Pop Bloom). He equally enjoys eating the fruits of his labor!!

Hockey Rules




For those of you that know me (Ed) - I really like hockey (especially the Philadelphia Flyers and the North Dakota Fighting Sioux (pictured above).

The Frick File


The Frick family consists of Ed, Kerri, Avery, Christian, and Brielle. Here is a picture so you get the idea!!
