Sara loves a game of fetch. She is always bringing us sticks to throw!

Our Afternoon to Music

video

That dandelion blowing needed to be set to music, and that little Brendan just loves to "help" with the yardwork. He's been helping to haul weeds and shrubs to the pile to be picked up. I bought him a toy push lawnmower last week and his favorite thing to do is to push that down the sidewalk. He was pushing Ava's doll strollers and little shopping cart so the lawnmower makes Paul happy too. (just kidding)

Ava Singing

Ava is learning how to sing "Tommorow." You may want to turn the volume down a bit, but I am very proud that she did hit some of the notes!

Muddy Water



The kids got to cover themselves with mud in the bathtub this morning with Crayola Mud Soap. What clean dirty fun!

A Walk to Visit the Fish






I have been watching a couple of kids this week because my neighbor who usually watches them is in Alaska. It has been an interesting week and overall Brendan has enjoyed spending time with his little friend, although it was a bit stressful at times due to the change of his routine. Today we took a walk to the DEC Fish aquarium. Brendan loves visiting the fish!

May Flowers

I received flower bulbs for Christmas from my mom and they took right off this spring. They are beautiful!

Don't mind the posts. The kids went to bed early so I have been playing around with pictures again!

Emmy's Birthday


I have been neglecting my blog lately, but I'm back ! Last night we celebrated Emmy's 2nd Bday. Here is Josie jumping out of the box to Emmy's surprise!

Baby Sam.




I just had to throw this one in of Brendan after enduring many hugs and kisses from Emmy.
Brendan: I'm outta here.
Emmy: What did I do?

Georgia and Russell.

Here is the Birthday girl, leading Brendan to the horses.
Aww, is she telling him a secret?










Brendan loves Uncle Brad's lawnmower.

I love this picture of Georgia in the sunshine. Love the boots Georgia. You can dress her up- but you can't take the country out of her!


Elsie stopping to pose with the horses.







Here is Josie with the adorable bumble bee that she and her mother made out of a mustard container! Great way to recycle! It makes a cute lawn ornament. We are definately going to try this. (when we run out of mustard!)
