Happy Birthday, Ben!

It's so cliche to say that the time flies, but it truly does.  Today Ben turned 4 years old.  He is smart and funny and fun to be around.  He is a ball of energy and curiosity.  He likes to read and play outside.  His attention span is about 3 seconds for anything other than a movie or a book.  He loves to snuggle up and relax on weekends after running around like a crazy man at the playground.

We love you, Ben!!

I'm four!!!

Sock Gloves

Ever since the Frozen phenomenon began this past winter, Ben has been obsessed with gloves because both Queen Elsa and Prince Hans wear them in the movie.  Once winter was over and the gloves in the house were packed away, Ben got into the habit of taking off his socks and putting them on his hands for "gloves" AKA "sock gloves".

Of course - monkey see, monkey do around here.  So now Tommy is interested in taking of HIS socks and making sock gloves.

Tommy especially likes to take off his socks and shoes when we are in the car so that I can't stop him from spilling sand from his sneakers all over the car.

This is what happened today when I was driving:

Testing out the limits of a new helmet

After he crashed into the fence Ben said "This helmet doesn't work!" as if the helmet was supposed to keep him on the bike, not just protect him when he inevitably fell down...  FYI, he was totally fine and laughing.  ; )
