Drew is FOUR!

Happy birthday to a kid who has more spunk than anyone I know - he's always moving, always happy, and knows what he wants. He makes us laugh constantly and life would be so much more boring without him. Be fantastic four this year, Drew!

A party with friends at The Park!
We played every sport we could, and had a hot, sweaty, fabulous time.

 Stomp rockets!
 Chalk outlines
 Very melty cupcakes

Show & Tell

Mondays are Show & Tell days in Mrs. Dixon's kindergarten class, and Evan decided last week he wanted to bring the twins! We asked and made a plan, and today we stopped by to show class the twins at 9 months old. Evan introduced them, described the cool things they do like crawl and babble, and talked about how he helps and is an excellent big brother, like feeding them, being an excellent helper to mommy and daddy, and playing and reading them books.

All the kids sat in a circle and the twins demonstrated their crawling skills; I was sure they'd get scared at all the new faces, but both were enraptured with the kids. The class predicted how many teeth each baby has, and identified differences they saw. 

As we packed up to go, Mrs. Dixon had the kids recap what they'd learned about twins and babies. Later in the day, the class has creative writing, and all were assigned to write about the twins. Evan came home bursting with pride because, "Everyone wrote about the twins, and since they're my twins, my name is in EVERYONE'S journal!" It was a great morning, for sure!

Mommy's Day

The kids all treated me wonderfully for Mothers Day!

Drew's school had a luncheon and they made flower seed paper hearts and painted pots for us. 

My garden started blooming and I got several flats of flowers to plant.

This little girl got all dressed up for mommy.

We hung out in the sun at the twins' first lacrosse game. 

After a delicious grilled steak dinner, the boys and I went for ice cream. 

I'm so blessed!

Random Pictures

A couple recent fun moments:

Everyone is playing so nicely together! 

"Hey bro- how come you're out there??"

Wonder Woman 

They've started eating real food at school and at home. 

"It's ok little brother! I'll hold you until mommy gets here." 

I can reach my new toy! It's my favorite. 

An early interest in reading. Or at least in pulling books off the shelf. 

I'll push you!! 

Pretty girl :)

Baby wearing

Sometimes the best way to get twins from place to place is in a stroller, but other times it's better to wear them. Like when you have to go somewhere at nap time. Or when the stroller won't roll well on the terrain. Or when they won't fall asleep so you decide to walk the Target aisles. Or just when everyone needs an extra cuddle.

Derby Day

It's time for the Derby! We had friends over and we all picked a horse... Then Evan dressed up as a jockey. Of course.
