Enjoying Juice

(I'm in Norwich for a few days and found these pics on mom's computer since I haven't taken any here yet...I should get on that!

These were taken at the lunch after the Easter Egg hunt this year. The meal was right up the boy's alley - hot dogs and apple juice!

Helping Daddy

One of Logan's dresser drawers needed to be fixed so he helped Scott to get the job done!

Morning Time

The kids are usually awake between 6:30 and 7:30am with Logan up the earliest and Jacob sleeping sometimes until 7:30am. They spend quite a while just hanging out on the couch, zoned out watching TV.

(I'm not sure he even realized I was taking his picture...)

Jacob isn't much of a veggie lover so I was pretty shocked the other night when he thoroughly enjoyed his asparagus and then asked for more. Maybe he liked it because it was locally grown!

Bike Riding

Jacob has his first ride on the back of Daddy's bike. ( He wouldn't look at the camera...)

3 ducks flew into our front window last week...2 flew away right away and one (the female in the picture) didn't. Eventually the male came back for her and they walked away. I suspect she was injured when she flew into the window.

Children's Museum Fun

Happy Birthday....Grandma!

It was my mom's birthday last week and since I'm behind in posting, these pictures are from when she was here for dinner.

We took a trip to the bowling lanes again. We try to go every once and a while as Logan loves to go and practice. He'll be starting in his own bowling league in September; I'm not sure who is more excited - Scott or Logan.

This time when we went bowling, Jacob actually wanted to try too. He walked right up to the line and got his ball rolling as well as he could. They had a blast!

Watching Logan bowl.

"Hmm, I think I could do that."

He quite often just drops the ball before even getting close to the line.

Focusing on those arrows...

Getting ready to throw!

Watching it make it to the pins.

A cute shot of the two of them.

Daddy helps Jacob.

Trying Something New

So since my posts have been sparse lately, I'm going to try something new. Rather than making big long posts with lots of pictures about what we've been doing; I'm going to try and post one picture every day.

If something exciting is happening, I'll try and post extra pictures but there are no promises. Maybe I'll try and do recipes again and other things that I find useful...we'll see.

But if I can get at least one picture per day...you might all be happy (and so will I)!

Happy Birthday...to ME!

My birthday was over a week ago but it was a great day! Here's a photo recap!

A (great) gift from my mom and dad!

Logan putting candles in the cake that Scott made for me.

Me with the cake.

Blowing out the candles.

The cake that Scott made from scratch. It was very yummy!

The boys and I.

Scott cooked this delicious meal for us after the kids went to bed.

(I think there might be more pictures of me in this single post than there have EVER been on the blog!)

Those Rainy Days

Since it has rained SO much lately, we've been stuck inside a lot. There were times when the rain stopped but it was still SO wet outside. I sent the kids out anyways to play in the puddles. They usually didn't last long out there but it was enough to at least get them out!

The puddles on the driveway and sidewalks seem to disappear pretty quickly but the patio along the side of our house has a pretty big dip in it so the water sits around for a long time.

Jacob carried his rake through the puddle.

"Off to work!"

Logan encouraging Jacob to SPLASH!

Trying to scoop the water up.

I had to roll his pants up because they were getting so full of water they were falling down.

One More Easter Post

So I stopped blogging...again. Oops.

On Easter Sunday (yes I'm THAT far behind!) we went to New Hamburg and celebrated with the Millers!

Playing in the backyard.

Cousin Joel watches.

Logan tries to catch Shadow.

Great-Grandpa taking the boys for a ride!

Hanging out at Home

I must have uploaded these pictures a while ago but forgot to post them!
