Me and Boys

I was trying to read...and in crawled two boys...Andrew even stole my book! But they are really cute.:)

So sad....

Cuyahoga Falls, Borders....RIP....I will miss you!

First Day of Preschool



Adam on his first day of preschool - what a big boy! Notice his Cars lunchbox - he is IN LOVE with that thing!

In the Sink

Adam asked to play in the sink...and climbed right in!

Catching Up

We got back from AK last Friday and we've spent the week catching up. Paperwork, housework, schoolwork - all that fun stuff! Adam started preschool on Tuesday and seems to be pretty happy - hopefully he does well! It has been raining most of the week, which is annoying, but we've been busy. I also rearranged clothing - Adam is now in 4T shirts and half and half in pants. Andrew is in 3T shirts and half and half in pants. For Adam is all about height, but he has to be able to keep them up! Those adjustable waist pants are so cool! For Andrew, is the opposite - he's my little fridge!

Final AK Pictures

I'm finally getting up my last Alaska pictures up.


Fixing Uncle Billy's fire truck - wires everywhere!
Fishing



Kissing up to the fake deer!








Adam and Halley - they look like explorers!




Look where I got!


Are we leaving yet?


I did it!

Fun with Friends

My friend Christine brought over her three youngest to play with my kids. We had a blast!

Sailing - aren't Adam and Rosie so cute sharing an oar?
Kids just gravitate to my father! You can see he has 4 of the 5 down there

Transportation Museum

On the way home from Talkeetna, we stopped at the Alaska Transportation Museum (my grandparents are members). The boys had a blast running around to see all the old equipment on the property, most of it unrestored.

Grandpa and Andrew in front of a Huey
Pretty cool!


Old fire truck

Driving an old Anchorage bus

So can you figure out why this truck is so cool?

Adam - he thought he was quite the big boy in the co-pilot's seat alone!

Mary's Wedding

I don't have any pictures of the actual ceremony (I was in it), but I'm sure I will eventually. Here are a few pre-wedding pictures for now.

The beautiful bride!
With her flower girls (her nieces, Elizabeth and Cherish...so adorable!)
