New portraits....finally

We've been meaning to do this I think now for six months (when A turned 4). We finally found out that Kiddie Kandids takes stinking appointments now (why they haven't done this in the last 4 four year is beyond us!) and we got one today. The boys were pretty good. N has this personality that he'll decide when he's good and ready and you can't trick him into anything. A and T were really cute guys though. A was really funny for the group shots. He couldn't wait to put the old strangle hold (also known as a brotherly hug) on his bros. All in all they turned out great. We still need to talk to Larry and see if she can do our family some time this summer. We love her pics on her blog!

Our Boys Love Thomas!!!

This happened a while ago, but we're just getting around to posting it. We decided for part of N and T Birthday fun we would take the family up to see Thomas who just happened to be in town. Neil and Becky decided they wanted to come and brought Maggie, Cole, Fisher, and Ava. The more the merrier, we all had a blast. We were going to eat at the famous train restraunt, however when we got there the line was out the door for a lousy burger, all in the name of Thomas. We ended up eatting at Pizza Hut which by the way was also pretty crazy. A was especially excited to see Thomas. I don't think he could believe his eyes. N and T were just happy to be on a train. However they now know and love Thomas themselves. Who ever thought so many kids could love a little blue train.
The gang and Thomas....more kids than adults.....tons of fun!!

Our little fam and old #1

N and T are TWO!

So, holy cow, N and T turned 2 on Friday June 1st!! We can't believe that it's gone by soo fast. We are excited that we've made it this far too. Three boys is pretty busy. Teeny convinced me I needed to take the day off, so what the heck, right? When they woke up they opened their presents first. A was a great helper here. We got them some clothes and a bubble machine (POS that didn't work...we took it back for a play sprinkler) and a steering wheel for the swingset. N could turn that thing all day long! We also got some stuff for A for his half birthday. Mostly swimming stuff that he needed. The morning was fun and then we got to head up to the Chevron pool. We had a little swimming party there for them, and thanks to all that showed up. They got some great gifts and love, seriously love, every one of them. They played with boats, trucks, balls, tents, swimming pools, etc. all weekend. Saturday we played in the yard almost all day and then that night we went to the fireworks. We loaded up the boys in the bike trailers and headed to the park. It worked out perfect. There wasn't hardly a crowd there and we had plenty of room for the guys to wiggle around. A was totally excited to see the fireworks. He kept asking and asking, "When are they going to start?". Needless to say he loved them, and loved telling us about them, which we loved! N and T were totally taken by them too. At first N was a little timid, but later he'd point up at them and say "Wow!". T was just enthralled the whole time by them. Then on Sunday we headed to Becky's after our lousy 1-4pm church, not crazy about the time. Gma and Gpa got them these great little trikes and Nate and Jodi got them the funnest little bells for them! They loved just sitting on them ringing the bells. Thanks guys! All in all we are so excited we have the boys we do in our family. We are so blessed and fortunate that they are as handsome as they are too because it assures us cute grandkids....but what did you expect?
N loves to drive the wheel, loves it!!!
Spriderman goggles, Thomas PJ's...A's lovin' it!
Like we said, all day long....
T has to have his glasses, wish I had a pair too...
Yeah, pretty sweet little guys.....go ahead, envy.
