A little backyard fun

We had a crazy busy weekend from a date night Friday to 18 (really 19) month pictures this morning. In between, we filled back up the kids pool to play in after dinner and tired them out for bedtime.

Jaxson is so dainty when it comes to anything that could be rough-housed.

With each time we take them out to play or take them to the park, Jayce gets gutsier and gutsier.

And they all fall down!

As always, we had a fun summer weekend. I love just doing things on a whim with my hubby and the boys and not having any obligations and having to be somewhere at a certain time. That definitely makes life more fun.

I will leave you with the boys 18 (er, 19) month picture we chose!

A day in the park..........

My husband's family reunion was yesterday in Green Bay. Not a fun drive but it was a good time. The boys had fun with all the playground equipment as you'll see. We have taken them to parks in the area but none had all the cool stuff this one did.

Jayce had fun spinning Jaxson........

And Jaxson had fun hanging on!

Helping the big boys play bean bag toss. Here he was clapping because one made it in!

Playing with a ball

We had a great time with family and an even better time exploring new things in the park. Can't wait until next year when they'll be a little older and even more curious!

Happy 4th!

Despite all the teething (Jayce getting his 2yr molars and Jaxson working on the last of his front teeth), we had a pretty good 4th of July this year. No fireworks (early bedtime) and no parades (neither will sit still) but we did play outside all weekend which was fun!

Here's a quick recap: Friday, laid low and did our weekly Target run and got a new pool; Saturday, played outside around the house and went to a local 4th outdoor party; Sunday, got the boys hair cut for the warm weather and played outside some more; Monday, went to grandma and grandpa welch's in the afternoon, swam and came home!

WHEW! It was a busy, crazy weekend and the boys had a blast. I'm sure they could've played outside some more but it was time to get home and wind down for bed.

Happy boys

Ready, set........



We hope everyone had a good holiday!
