Joel's Birthday Party

(This post is really late...Joel's birthday was at the end of June....)

We headed over to Todd and Helena's to celebrate Joel's 3rd birthday! There are a lot of pictures in this post, and Scott took most of them for a change.

Checking out Joel's new slide.
Awesome soccer action shot of Jacob.
Todd and Helena had a reptile show come to entertain for the party. Some people (Grandma Miller) spent this portion of the party hiding in the house but mostly everyone really enjoyed it. The boys loved most of animals.
The cousins checking things out before it got started.
What's in there?
Sitting together, waiting for the show to start.
First up, cockroaches!
Tarantula! (I like how Logan is holding his legs close and Jacob is getting out of the way!)
Brave guy petting the spider.
I think this one was a bearded dragon.
A great picture of our biggest boy.
I forget what this one was; but I think it was the only one that Jacob touched.
The turtle was pretty cute.
Something with a blue tongue...
 And then the snakes came out. I walked away for this part so I'm not sure what they were all called.

Checking out the snake.
Logan wasn't frightened at all.
Joel tried it on too.
Grandpa checking out the big snake.
Daddy's turn.
That snake is very close to his face!
 She brought some food for the animals too so the kids got to help feed some of them.

Apparently turtles like strawberries.

 After the reptiles were cleaned up, the celebrations continued with pizza and cake!

Logan and Jacob waiting patiently for cake.
It's a Cars cake for Joel!
Blowing out the candles.
Happy Birthday Joel!

How She Changes

 I put this dress on Norah last week (or maybe the week before) for church. She did wear it to church before when she was just a few days old. She's changed so much already!
A few days's too big and all she can do is lay there and sleep.
About 7 weeks old. The dress barely fits, she's sitting up, awake and (almost) smiling!

Crazy Kid

Jacob is quite a character. He gets himself into all sorts of situations.

Here's one of his latest tricks.

I love the smile on his face! He knows he's pretty funny.

Swing batter!

Here's Logan trying his hand with his new t-ball set. 

First, you place the ball on the stand.
Then you line up the shot...
And swing!
Watch where it lands...
Throw the bat...and RUN!

2 Months Old

Yesterday marked Norah's 2 month birthday. Here are a couple of pictures of her looking quite serious since I couldn't get a smile from her.
