Doo Doo Da

That's Owen for Choo Choo Train.  I got the boys a used train table and boy has it been the best money I've spent recently.  They love it and it actually allows me to get some things done around the house while they play.  The only problem occurs when they fight over trains or cars.  It's pretty fun to hear them say "Doo Doo".

Our Time with the Bjorks

The kids were sitting together the first morning we got there.  I had to get a picture, turns out it was the only time I could get them together!
Owen (in sunglasses), Addy and Chase playing Ring Around the Rosie

The 3 little kids each claimed a pair of Addy's sunglasses, Owen-green, Chase-light pink, Addy-hot pink.  They even wore them to the mall.

Chase in his shades, who I think looks like Bono.

We celebrated the boys' birthday and Addy's birthday, which is August 10th.  The kids (and Lindzy and I) had cupcakes.

Thanks for the wonderful time Bjorks!  We miss you!

The HOT HOT HOT Days of Summer

It's been so hot and humid here that we can't stand it.  You will know my children by their hot red faces, just like their Mommy's!  We had a very hot day last week.  I made the boys go out and play in the pool because I was tired of being inside.  It was nice under the shade of our portico.  However, it was so hot that my camera lens fogged up.  The pictures are kinda cool.

We went to the Como Zoo on Friday.  It was HOT, once again, 91ish.  You know how I sweat in the heat - ick.  It was super fun, though.  I went with my neighbor, her 2 girls and niece.  We all packed in the van and had a day of it.  Actually it was just the morning.  The boys were so tuckered out that they slept until 4:30!
Looking at the monkeys
Owen stares at the giraffe
I peer at the sea lions with the boys
Waiting for the seal show while eating a sucker to occupy the time.
Last week Daddy and Chase took a nap
Chase and Owen got new pillows from their Aunt and Uncle  They also got a T ball set, which is super fun!
We were forced to go to the basement last night when the sirens went off, a tornado was on the way, but never came.  While Jeff was upstairs, I entertained the boys in the basement by dressing them in Mr. Potato Head glasses.  Don't they fit Chase well? He wanted them on and was mad if they came off.
We've been spending some time dancing-Owen kicks up his heels
Chase is up on his toes dancing

Fruits of the Spirit

We are learning about he Fruits of the Spirit.  So far we have learned about patience and love. We made a pear to go with patience and today we made a lemon to go with love.  We talk about Jesus and how we can have the Fruits of the Spirit He promises to those who believe.

The Hulk

We did some painting which led Chase to turn into . . . 
The Hulk!

The is before the hulk emerged.

Owen drives his cars through the paint
I gave the boys sequins to put in their paint. They stuck to their fingers instead of the paper.  Figures.
