Fun at Grandpa Jerry's

The boys had a fantastic time while we were staying at Grandpa Jerry's house. Their favorite activities there were playing with the dogs, the pianos and the water out back. At first Owen HATED the water. If even one drip of the water hit him he would have a complete meltdown. Finally on our last day there Owen decided to have at the water. He had so much fun and was soaked head to toe!

Thank you so much Grandpa J for all you did for us!!! We appreciate you so much! :)

Ryan, you keep feeding those ducks, this stuff is good!!!

Still not giving the bread to the ducks..

Sprinkler FUN!!!

Finally, he loves it!!!

Picture Overload

I have been meaning to post pictures from our trip to Texas and I keep forgetting or getting side-tracked or too tired by the end of the day to actually do so. I hope I can keep this blog going when I am chasing around 3 little ones!

Brandon got the boys water guns --- they were a huge hit!

Kind of funny that Ryan adores Uncle B and Owen loves to be with Uncle A.
This face has mischief written all over it!

What a difference a year makes...

This actually makes me kind of sad. Mainly because it forces me to see how fast time is going by and how much changes in just 365 days.

Our Day with Uncle B!

I found out a couple of months ago that my brother and his band would be coming through DC, finally! They have been touring for over 2 full years and this was their first trip to the DC area. Anyway, he had just enough time that day to stop by and play with the boys and get a good, home-cooked meal before his big show. Jeff and I went to watch the guys. I don't think we had seen them play live since before Ryan was born so it was a treat to finally get to see them again. The boys love their Uncle Brandon and had so much fun playing with him!

This is one of my absolute favorite pictures!!! Love it!

My Little Whistleblower

Sorry for the low quality of these pictures, they were taken with my phone. A few weeks ago I bought some very inexpensive whistles to put into the Easter Eggs at Ryan's school. Ryan had fun with his whistle and trying to figure it out. Suddenly Owen picked up a whistle of his own and started blowing it. He actually was able to figure it out a little faster and blow much louder than Ryan. He thought it was hilarious. :)
