Just Hangin' Out

He could do this forever!  I don't know where he gets the strength, but he's got it!

Easter 2015

Happy Easter!

The boys had a fun day starting from the time they woke up to see what the Easter Bunny had dropped off all the way through bedtime.  He left them each a water gun, swim diving sticks, a coloring book, new cups and a mini Minecraft toy.  He also left a note for them saying how much he loved the decorated eggs they left for him.  That bunny is a sneaky guy, Ethan and I couldn't figure out how he got into the house since the door was locked.

The boys found every egg the easter bunny hid in the house and afterward I hide them in the backyard for Alec (4 times).  Ethan wasn't interested in finding them again, so Alec was very happy that he got them all to himself.

Later we went to Nana's for a visit and lunch and then stopped off at a park before heading home. 

  Ethan is a climber, hanger and jumper.  Sometimes I have to look away because my heart might leap out of my chest!

Give it time and eventually Alec will also get a little more courage, but for now he's happy with staying low.  Me too.

The boys met their Great Uncle Michael (Nana's brother-in-law) this weekend, they could hardly keep up with him!  Both boys took to him right away and were bummed when it was break time.  Here they are getting put in jail for something, but they kept asking for it and he was happy to dole out some punishment (lots of play spankings for both boys!).

 Otto is 6 months old now and has definitely found his place in our family!  He's settled down a bit and doesn't nip the boys quite as often so I think he might be transitioning from puppy to young adult.  

He's still a great dog and really doesn't get into too much trouble, even when he's left alone in the house for a few hours.  He is a licker though and will lick the boys' faces, hands and feet every chance he gets (no, they don't mind one bit).  He loves his yellow soccer ball and his tennis ball and will play fetch at the drop of a hat. 

Happy 6 Months Otto!

Long Gone Are The Training Wheels!

Alec thought he was big enough to ride his bike without training wheels, and within the day he looked as though he'd been riding for months!  So for the past 2 weeks the boys have been taking a bike ride nearly everyday, it's pretty cool to watch him gain confidence.  When he first started, I loved watching his face as he sailed down the road, it was a combination of excitement and fear squished together.  It wasn't long before he really got the hang of it and was nothing but smiles.  

Go, Alec, Go!
