Grandma's, Cousin, Swimming and LEGO's!

The boys and I made a quick weekend trip to Grandma and Grandpa's a couple weekends ago.  One of my friends from Wichita had a baby and I wanted to give him a squeeze, so off we went!

He's the cutest little baby, slept in my arms the entire time except for one quick peek at me to smile.  I asked Nick if we could have just one more but he shot me down without hesitating.  It was worth a try. Truth be told, I don't know I'm cut out for three kids either so I'll get my fill via my friend's babies!

After I got my cuddles in, a few of us girls went out for dinner.  Love getting together with them, there's a lot of laughing and catching up going on.

Back at the farm, the boys soaked up every minute of it.  Alec carried Molly around, played with all sorts of toys and dug in the sandbox.  Ethan did much of the same, he and Dakota played "school" a lot so I'm sure he came home a little smarter!

We stopped off in El Dorado to see Andrew on our way back home.  Oh my goodness, he is growing!  Not quite taller than me but maybe next time I see him he will be.

The boys started swim lessons last week, here they are getting ready to jump in.

For Ethan's birthday he got his first Lego set and has shown a lot of interest in building things since.  He's improved a lot over the past couple months and can now follow the instructions with little help.  Thankfully, Nick has (some) patience and can lay there and build things with him.  I try hard, but I just can't get into them.  You should see the floor when he's playing, I'm not joking when I say there are over 500 pieces scattered.  My brain just explodes.  

But here's the little builder, showing off his helicopter.  Maybe Legoland might be a tad more fun for the boys this year?!

Bonus Picture: we trimmed a tree by the street and had the boys haul the branches away!  They didn't even bill us.  Love these guys!
