April 29, 2012

It has been a wonderful weekend. Friday we took the boys swimming at the gym and a nice dinner out together. Saturday Eric finally got back on his road bike and I got my butt kicked in a total conditioning class. Did a little shopping to get ready for our trip to the coast. Saturday evening the kids had a baby sitter while Eric and I went out to a friends birthday party. It was great to catch up with some of our friends. Today we started family breakfast day. I made waffles for the first time. Owen drank orange juice from a big boy cup. He did great. Met up with some friends and their little girl to swim at the gym. The kids had a great time and all the parents took turns going on the water slides. Makes you feel like a kid again. With some beautiful weather we decided to eat out on the deck. Eric grilled for us and Owen ate corn off the cob like a big boy. He is just growing up so fast. He is at the stage where he wants to do everything on his own. He would rather eat an apple whole instead of me cutting it up. He is starting to say "No" all the time and "Mine." I think this is a stage and from what I have gathered it isn't going to be over anytime soon. He has also been playing with Jack a lot. Tonight he was playing with his toy dishes. He had a spoon and bowl and was pretending to feed Jack. It was really cute except that I think Jack was so confused that he wasn't getting any food on the spoon. We got the boys or rather Owen a wined up fish that you put in the water and it swims. The boys both loved it. Jack kept trying to grab it and Owen kept telling him "No." So funny!!

In case anyone doesn't know, Owen is in a mother's day out school. It has been great for everyone. The teacher says Owen is doing great and that she can't believe he is only 18 months old. Today they had a parent child picnic lunch. We all made it, even Eric took off for lunch, to come eat with Owen. Owen had his first ice cream sandwich and he loved it.

Owen and Jack swinging together. Owen has just started wanting to swing on the big boy swing, he does good.

Jack was loving the swing!!

They pool and sand box are up and ready to go. Owen is loving the back yard!!

We were going to swim with Owen but the water was a little to cold and Jack has an ear infection. Didn't think it would be a great idea. Jack and I just hung out on the 1980's tie dye sleeping bag. Quebert kept a close eye on us.
We are summer ready!!

It was a great week last week and an even better weekend. So nice to get to just hang with the family at home.

April 1, 2012

Very productive weekend. Finally got Eric to commit to the gym. We went Saturday and Sunday, it felt great. Saturday we played basketball together. We had a baby shower to go to on Saturday and we all had so much fun. Owen's little friend Ayden's mom is having a baby. So Owen got to play with Ayden and Eric help the husband, of my prego friend, watch seven little ones.
Today we went to the gym, went grocery shopping, did some crafts with the kids, did yard work while kiddos slept, died eggs and decorated them, and tried to make rice crispy eggs. Just some great pics of the boys from this weekend.
getting ready for bed.
Watching some TV. Craft time!!
