They all insist they know what they're doing! I just stay away...

We took Monday off from everything and took a trip to Yellowstone with my parents. I grew up going at least once a year, sometimes more, but it's been over two years since I was there last. I love going, I'll never get tired of spotting buffalo, elk, and sometimes a bear. This time we got to see ducks, elk, antelope, buffalo, deer,a moose, and even a bear! I know everyone was wanting to see pictures of Jack and Owen but it looks like we didn't take any! My picture will have to do until I get some from my parents :)

First Trip to the ZOO!

We took Owen and Jack to the zoo a couple months ago for the first time. I now know that it's worthless to go on a really hot day because none of the animals are out to see and the boys get cranky cause they're so hot! It's a pretty sad day at the zoo when the most exciting part is drinking water from the lions mouth! Apart from that we saw a few ducks, birds, and goats- not too exciting!

Celebrate Youth in the Park

The school district puts on a "Celebrate the Youth" day in the park every summer. The boys are still a little young for most of it but there was free dinner! We ended up at the playground for most of the time. Going to the park is so weird with them, they don't hardly play they just sit there and watch all the other kids play! We almost have to force them to do anything, my silly little boys.

New Beds

I've been waiting for these beds to arrive for two weeks now! Although they were truly a pain to put together I love the way they look.

I thought the boys would love them, too, but although they LOOK happy in them that wasn't quite the story last least for Jack. He cried off and on all night until I finally went and got him around 4:30. Wonderful!

Now I just need to decide on some cute blankets...that don't cost a fortune. Watch for more pictures of the finished room in the near future!

We're back!

Since Ashlee has brought to our attention that it's been an entire year since we last posted :) we thought we'd better make a dedicated effort in keeping this up to date a bit more! Since bedtime is about the most exciting thing that happens at our house here's some pictures from a few nights ago.

They love these jammies, Ash, because they can dress themselves! Such independent two year olds we have- I wish I could say I loved it all the time! Like yesterday when I went to get them up from their nap they had decided to change their own stinky diapers...need I say more?
