Public Works Open House

On June 16 we headed out the Public Works Open House. I'm pretty sure that last year I declared that I didn't want to go again but after being home for a few days with Norah, I thought that we might enjoy getting out for a couple of hours.

We've attended this event a couple other times (2011, 2009), but the boys (especially the adult one) really enjoy it, so we keep going back.

All ready to go!

It goes up really high!
Jacob kept leaning over the edge yelling "HI!"
Daddy and Logan went for a dump truck ride (Jacob thought it was too loud).

Proof that Norah was there too...she slept the whole time.

Trying to take pictures...

We have SO many pictures of Logan when he was a baby and still quite a few of Jacob but I'm really struggling to keep up with taking pictures of Norah. I need to start being more diligent about it.

Heidi visited when Norah was 2 days old.
Trying out the swing...she's starting to like it a bit more now!

First Bath at Home

I took these pictures during Norah's first week at home but I wanted to make sure they made it onto the blog. The boys were excited to help us give Norah a bath....we had to use the kitchen counter so that there was space for everyone to watch and help!

Jacob's probably trying to splash water on her here...
Logan was the official towel holder.
She didn't even cry!
Jacob watched intently for the entire bath.

Visiting with Great Grandma and Great Grandpa

Scott's grandparents came to visit and meet Norah last weekend. While I didn't take a lot of pictures, we had a great visit. Grandma got to hold Norah lots and they both got to watch the boys play in the pool in the backyard!
Admiring the new baby girl!

First Swim of the Year!

The weekend before Norah was born we headed to Norwich to spend the day enjoying mom and dad's air conditioning, pool and cooking abilities! the water was a bit cool but the boys had lots of fun splashing around until they were shivering!

Even Grandpa got in the water!
Logan is getting more and more confident in the water now!
Even with his floaty thing on and holding onto a noodle, Jacob preferred for
Scott to hold onto him. Hopefully a few more trips and he'll be confident to float around
on his own too!
If Scott ever gets his work van, hopefully the kids and I will be able to make many trips to Norwich this summer to use the pool!

Sibling Love

These pictures were taken the day after Norah was born. The boys were both (and still are) very eager to hold her and especially to pose for the camera.

Jacob joins the paparazzi.
All smiles.
I love this picture!

Then we tried to get a shot of all three of them...
Silly kids.
At least they look happy.

Mommy's Helper

Jacob got a cleaning set for his birthday or Christmas last year and recently he's really started using it. He especially likes to sweep up the cat food and wash the windows. Whenever he hears me get the broom out, he comes running with his own broom and dustpan to help.

These cats sure make a mess!
Sweeping up the mess.
He actually does a pretty good job!

He actually pretends to squeeze the bottle and the rubs the sponge around!
I doubt he'll be this keen when I actually could use his help!

Just a few Pictures....

I'm trying to get caught up, posting the pictures from the last week but it's taking some time...something which I don't seem to have much of anymore!

Washing the Van

The boys and Scott washed the van a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure how clean it really got but they had a lot of fun!

I think Jacob had the most fun just dipping his sponge in the pail!

Logan pretty much just "cleaned" the same spot over and over again!
