Moms Day At The Zoo...




Ok... who are we kidding.. Everyday is a day at the Zoo... But this time we went to see some "exotic" animals... It was quite the train of strollers... It was very neat we even got to see the elephant painting... 

Swimming

VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.... SOME SCENES MAY CONTAIN NUDITY!!!!

We try and take our kids swimming a couple time a week... They love it..  Sometimes Isaac even wears his life jacket for good measure... (SHHHH they don't need to know that this is actually called a bath tub - not a swimming pool..)

Going, Going.... Gone



It's taken him a little while to get the hang of this crawling thing.... with an older brother that's only too happy to give him (or take from him) what he wants.... and according to his dad a mom that jumps anytime he squawks... So at 10 months we were thrilled that he's finally mobile... He's definately a lot happier... What we are somewhat apprehensive about is the pulling up on furniture, steps from one place to another ..... and what you will notice is the crawl - push up to a stand... He has taken his first step... YIKES... Anyways he's quite proud of himself... 

Sharing a Bed... Part 1



Our plan for when this new baby comes and needs the crib was to move the boys into their "New" Room and "Big Boys Bed" (which they will share), which has gone beautifully on the three test runs we've had... They have gotten to really like sharing a bed... Somehow this wasn't the one they were to be sharing though... This is the scene that transpired a few minutes after i'd put them down for a nap one day this week and went to check on them after hearing some giggling...

One 2 year old + 10 minutes Alone = A BIG MESS



So for any of you that are still trying to convince yourselves that your little angels won't go thru the terrible "twos"... ( i too at one point was in a period of denial - but no longer).... This is what one little boy can do with a CLOSED can of paint, a clean roller, and 10 minutes alone... I had run upstairs to put Jace down for a nap and then as he's started pulling himself up on his crib and looking at us with a mischevious look in his eye... went , grabbed the camera and took a picture... By the time I arrived back ... this was the scene that greeted me.... I started cleaning up the mess at 5:30 pm, Wade arrived home at 7 pm and we finished cleaning off the floor, leather couch, lamp, dining room table and chairs, 3 bar stools and counter AT..... 10:15 pm... 
Some people do consider this Art.... and in our household we do all we can to encourage their creative genes... but even this went a bit too far.
