The Big 4!

My littlest one is four!




Not sure how that happened.




It seems like yesterday, we were just bringing him home from China....

And now.

He's four.




And this little one?

He's into Diggers and Dump Trucks...and all things "construction"!

Can you tell?




He was enthralled with his cake.




Quite frankly, so were we!
It was super yummy.



Blowing out the candles is some serious business.

Gotta really strategize.




Four candles.

Gotta get 'er done.




And that last one?

Super hard to get.




But finally.

This.





What really makes this day special??

How about celebrating with Dad?




It's Daddy's birthday too!




Daddy got his own cake as well.




We are so blessed to celebrate with family.....





But.

All good things must come to an end.




Birthdays.

And picture taking. Ahem.

There are only so many pictures one little four year old boy can take.

Hanging at the library.


The kids love going to the library.





Today it was hopping.
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was a cold and rainy day in June????
There is always so to do.

Trucks.




Dinosaurs.




Puppet play.




The "Bathtub".  Every library has one, right?




Oh yeah.
And the books!
Can't forget about the books!!

It was such a long line to check out books.....
Thus the "face'.



Library.
Always a good time!

An Uncle and A Nephew


....who are only 3 months apart.

Yep.

Jude is Archer's Uncle.




However, this Uncle and Nephew combo are also pretty good friends.




They play and fight together.
The share and grab toys from each other.
The hug and push each other down.
They laugh together.
They cry together.
They also like to make very loud noises together!!!




Picture taking???
They get antsy.
Quickly.

"Dude, tell your mom to stop taking pictures."




Yep, they are done with the picture taking thing!




So yeah, my family is a little unconventional.....

But, as a mom and a mimi, I couldn't be more blessed!
Love these two boys to the moon and back!

Finally.....we can go outside and play!


Up here in the north....
It takes a while, a l-o-n-g while before it's warm enough to hang out at our local playground.

Finally.
A nice day.
Playground here we come!




What is it about a playground?

It's just fun.




Simple fun.




No bells and whistles.

Just kids having a good time and making memories!
