k is for kangaroo


Today in school we had a "K" day and all that that entails. The favorite activity was making our kangaroo pouch and making the little joey to go on the inside of the pouch. Then we jumped around singing our kangaroo song. What a fun K day!


Even Lincoln got in on the action!

eye candy

Booker was caught being quiet this morning. That's always a sign of trouble. When we found him he looked like this.."Look, mom, I painted myself everywhere", he said. Very cute!

Now what else can I get into...Notice our state of living..garbage can on top of the toilet (one of Lincoln's favorite to get into), and no toilet paper on the roller...can't imagine why we would do that, huh! :) what fun!

spaghetti dinner.

Last night we had spaghetti for dinner. Booker lately hasn't been too fond of spaghetti (he calls it worms)..so we have to bribe him to eat his dinner..or remind him that if he doesn't finish, he doesn't get dessert. HOWEVER...Lincoln loves spaghetti. I think these pictures tell all.

plus, check out my two new teeth!

cute speedo buns!

So in the world of speedos for boys, these are the cutest i've EVER seen! No, they really are not speedos, but a great invention...washable swimming diapers..they don't cost an arm and a leg and considering how much we are planning on swimming this summer, thought we'd give them a good try. Yesterday was hot. After a walk, the boys decided that it was so hot a popsicle couldn't even cure it. So we got the little pool out (our pool here doesn't open until Tuesday..the countdown is on!) and filled it with really cold water. I didn't think they were going to want to swim...was I wrong! They both had so much fun, and Booker is getting to be so good with Lincoln, so I actually got to sit and read a magazine while they swam....ahhh, the good life!
the cutest speedo bum you ever did see!

Lincolns first taste of really cold swim water....refreshing!

Booker's "tricks" off the slide.

We love nice weather!

butterflies

Every time we go on a walk, Booker is obsessed with butterflies. He has to ask me at least 1000 times where the butterflies are, especially right after he's seen one. Well, today his butterfly dream came true. We caught a butterfly on a walk and made a little home for it. Booker had to show everyone, including his stuffed animals.."Look animals, do you see Booker's butterfly?"..and of course at lunch time had to make sure the butterfly was being reverent for the prayer..."Mom, do you think the butterfly is folding his arms?" And the best was Booker asking to go to bed..now everyone who knows Booker knows that he doesn't ask to go to bed, so I said, "Well, where should we keep the butterfly?"...and he replied, "He can sleep with Booker in his blanket!" How fun it is to have a butterfly as a friend!

See him?!


Look I'm a butterfly too!

Booker's day at the bunny park.

This is the bunny park.

This is me at the bunny park trying to figure out exactly how I wanted to take it all in.
The water came out differently all the time. It "jumped".
It was really tall. Did mom really expect me to try and take this on?
I guess I could start with my foot.
Then my foot turned into my whole body.
Now I've got it. You run along with the water and get drenched.


But the funnest....if you put your face right over the hole the water hits you really hard in the face...ahhhhhh, there's nothing like it!

I giggled so hard every time!

That makes one great day at the bunny park and one happy kid!
