Boys will be boys...

When I got back from Maui it was right back into the swing of things. These boys keep me hopping, but I love them to pieces so it's just fine!


We went to the bounce house place and played on day... It was kind of cold that week and these boys needed to get some energy out!!


Arrrrr....



And we went to the library... One of Carter's favorite places. Chase had fun pretending he knew what he was doing on the computer :)

We bundled up and headed outside too. Carter picked this outfit one day. Pretty stylish eh!


Carter also had his first soccer practice for the year. He did good and he loves it!!

I decided to go look at some garage sales for some outdoor toys for the boys...  I drove around the neighborhoods and they sat in the back and watched a movie. It worked out perfect. I found this little trampoline and had to get it... Now they can stop jumping on my couch!!

And we found a car for Chase. We also found a basketball hoop . They love to jump on the trampoline and shoot at the hoop. Hours of entertainment :)

Carter read some books to Chase...



Chase got his rain boots on and was ready to go outside...

Simba made an appearance...

Carter became a missionary...


And he wrote another letter. This time to Nathan... He said "Daddy, I love you so much, What did you learn at school today? Carter" Nathan and Carter have this funny thing about that question. Every day at lunch Nathan calls and asks Carter what he did at school that day if he had preschool. Carter always rolls his eyes and says "why do you always ask me that!" So I thought it was funny when Carter wanted to write that to Nathan...

And some play dough was played with. All in all we kept busy and had fun!!!

Maui...

I love Maui! And it was so nice and relaxing to go with my mom! Don't get me wrong I missed Nathan and the boys, but it was a much needed break. I am so grateful that I got go! Thanks to my parents for taking me and to Grandma Kelly for watching my boys while I was gone! We have been to Maui several times, so we have done a lot of the touristy stuff. So my mom and I literally sat in lawn chairs and went out to eat at night. There was some walks on the beach and things, but it was pure relaxation. The best part was at night when I could just veg and not have to worry about giving kids baths and putting them to bed! It was awesome!!! Thanks again mom, dad, and Kelly!!!









Until next year!!! I think I could manage the boys then. I'm sure they will LOVE it!!!

Grandma Kelly...

Grandma Kelly came in to town to watch the boys so I could go to Maui with my mom. I took them last year by myself and it was just crazy. My mom was going to be there for 5 days by herself before the rest of my family came, so I decided I should go keep her company :) Thank goodness for Grandma Kelly being willing to come watch my munchkins! They LOVED having her here and we are so grateful to have such great grandmas and grandpas!!! Thank you thank you Grandma Kelly!!!!

We had a few days before I left so we did some shopping to load up the fridge... And anyone who knows me and my germaphobia knows it is a miracle that I let them ride in this cart... Mind you to was THOROUGHLY wiped down :)

We went out to dinner a few times...

We went and checked out T-Rex Cafe... It's a jungle themed restaurant that has dinosaurs that come to life and several fish tanks...







While mommy was gone the boys got to play!! Nathan and Grandma took them to the zoo one day...


Everything tastes better when you put it up your nose first :)















I got this sent to me while in Maui... and you can guess that I was thinking... Oh man I hope they wiped that down!!! Maybe some day I will get over it! Haha! Thanks again Grandma Kelly!!!!We love you!!!!
