Happy Mother's Day

A few weeks early, but this is very appropriate.  What a great trick and treat : )

Spring weekend

The sun came out this weekend, so we just had to get out.  It was a busy weekend with haircuts, birthday parties, sleepovers and dinners out.  Not to mention the normal laundry, groceries, family time that goes into weekends.

Ben has pretty much given up on napping on the weekends.  He naps every day at school, but on the weekends he fights it.  We decided to just let it be and give him quiet time.  However, that doesn't mean he isn't tired!  He simply cannot fight the car or the jogger stroller.  This weekend I decided to kill two birds with one stone.  I broke out the jogger and got in my run while he took a snooze.  Win-win!

Not even the passing train could wake him up when we stopped to stretch!

Then, after such a great nap, Ben was beyond excited to go for a sleepover at Meggie's house.  He put on his best mis-matched Christmas PJ's (OK, he was already wearing those), his cheerios necklace, sunglasses and sneakers.  Packed up his special bumble bee blanket and we were on our way!  He watched Frozen and had a great night.  Another win for all of us!

Chris and I got some one-on-one time with Tommy; which was great since that is rare.  (((((second babies))))  We went out to dinner at Panera Bread, and Tommy was digging his buttered noodles and yogurt!  A great weekend all around!

Superheroes and Playgrounds

There has been a lot of creative and imaginative play around the house lately.  Anything that can be used as a sword becomes a sword.  Gloves, boots and capes - all great accessories to become whoever you want to be.

Now that the Spring has finally decided to show up, we have been outside a lot.  Since our yard is currently unavailable to us since it's being re-seeded, we have been at the parks around town a LOT.  No matter where we go, the slide is always the biggest hit.

Silly boys

Hiding under the crib and playing peek-a-boo together.  Sneaking into the pantry and eating snacks as quiet as 2 little mice.  And holding hands after school on a sunny day.

Cute little trouble makers!
