Bear time

For the kids upcoming birthdays Gamma and Papa took them to build a bear. It was a wild good time. They each had a lot of fun watching their bears get made. Noah’s bear is Firman Sam, Ezra’s bear is Fireman in a truck, and Abby’s is Abigail.

Pumpkins and Butterflies – 2012

Yay I got all three kinda looking at the camera.

Last week we went to the pumpkin patch at the botanical gardens. The weather was much nicer this year (80s, last year it was 100!). We had a lot of fun. Bonus this year they had a firetruck to look at!

Hay maze fun

Rule breakers!

Ezra refused to put down his drink

These boys and firetrucks, it is true love.

No smile, but I got all three.

They could have checked it out all day.

Abby showing off how strong she is.

Water! Funny story Noah accidentally sat on the pokey plants in the corner and then Abby started calling him Cactus butt.

Learning how to tell boy monarchs from girl monarchs.

Brothers 🙂

Cousins 🙂

Love his excitement

My attempt at getting a picture with them

Ice block dig

These pictures are from back in June. Yep I’m behind, but I want to document the fun we had this summer. 🙂

Halloween 2011

This was the first Halloween that the boys understood what was going on and it was really a lot of fun. We explained trick or treating on Saturday and Ezra was ready to go! When it came to actually doing it they were so shy and quiet. Which really shocked me because they talk to everyone when we go out.

We carved pumpkins on Sunday with my family. Went trick or treating and then went Gamma and Papa’s to show off our costumes, the boys helped hand out candy (I think they liked this the best), and then home to check out our candy.

The last couple of photos are some snacks I made for play school on Friday and some balloons we decorated with on Monday. We really had a lot of fun this year. Here are the glow balloons we used for decoration. The swamp juice recipe and the eyeballs (the fingers are just cheese and almonds, you can use a food safe marker or other decorating gel for the knuckles.)

Pumpkins and Butterflies

Last Friday we took a little field trip to the Desert Botanical Gardens. We visited the pumpkin patch and saw the Monarch Butterflies. Gamma, Papa, and Abby joined out. It was a lot of fun!

You can see a few more pics here.

Easter Photos

We had a busy Easter weekend. It started out Saturday morning with the Easter egg hunt put on by our church. Lots to do there including a mini petting zoo, egg hunt, and Ez’s favorite, popcorn. Saturday after nap we went to Papa and Mema’s to hunt more eggs, dye eggs, eat yummy food, and run around like crazy. Sunday we went to church, over to Papa and Mema’s for lunch and then back home to chat with Nana, Papa, Julie, and Matt’s grandparents. They then refused a nap and were in bed by 7!

Photo Friday Catch up!

Oops it has been a while, did you miss these cute faces?

Photo Friday – 04.01.2011

I didn’t drag out the camera much this week so I included some cell phone pics. Also I really need to learn how to take pictures better in the area we have their little pool set-up.

Happy Birthday Nama

We celebrated Nama’s birthday on Sunday night with some Famous Dave’s Bbq, cake and ice cream, and three crazy toddlers!
