A Collage of our Daily Life

 Best Buddies.
I love it. These days when Jack is talking to Amelia, he will say things in a sweet gentle voice to her like, "Hi Buddy." "What's wrong Buddy?"
 Going for a tricycle ride.
 Trying to keep up with brother.
 Jack went on a train ride at the mall with friends.
 Silly kids in the bath tub. :-)
 Playtime at the indoor bounce house place with our friends Cora & Claire.
 Making a dinner delivery in the wagon to a family with sick kiddos.
 Snack time with our friend Zach.
 While on a walk to the donut store we had to take a short break to observe the construction trucks.
 While playing in the dirt in the backyard, Jack came across this treasure...a worm.
 With so many teeth it was about time for Amelia's first piece of corn on the cob.  It was a winner! She loved it!
 Hugs for brother.
My little brother Alex got engaged!
 Amazingly, his proposal video made it as the top video on Yahoo this last week! So cool!
 My big cooking helper. His job was to spread the melted butter on our blackened catfish.
 Amelia LOVES baby dolls!  I found her the other day putting her baby into her own infant car seat and covering it with a blanket.  She is a little mama!
 Can you tell Jack has a little sister?  So many treasures to hold for her while driving in the car... 2 dolls and a purse.  At least he had his hot wheels car with him. 
 Playtime in the waiting room while waiting at the doctors office for Amelia's 15 month check-up.
 We didn't know that while at her appointment Jack would end up needing to have blood drawn.  He was going to have his height checked and due to not growing as much as they would have liked they drew some blood to try and determine the cause of his slow growth.  He is still being monitored for now.  Jack didn't like the process (and having to get pocked 3 times) but in the end he was super proud of all 3 of his bandaids! That is one brave boy!
 Enjoying the beautiful weather on a nice walk.

 Crazy bath hair!
 Dinner with Jack and Superman (Zachary)
 Pizza picnic on the front porch
 Sleeping beauty
 Check out all that hair blowing in the wind!
 Playing at the new park

 What do you do when there are enough swings for everyone?  Double up and ride together!
 A highlight of Jack and Amelia's days...brushing their teeth.
 Jack's first attempt at rock climbing.
 Taco Tuesday at Rosa's with our friends after playtime at the park.
 Painting with water on the back patio
 Amelia thinks its more fun to just splash and play with the water.
Ice Cream with Mom-mom
 For whatever reason, Jack is always asking if we can stop for gas.  Not sure what the attraction is for the gas station.  This last trip to fill up, we let Jack actually get out of the car and watch the whole filling up the car with gas process.  It was like taking him to some awesome museum.  He loved it! Whatever makes you happy....
 Lunch with Grace.  I love it that recently when we go out with friends, Jack can now sit over at the "kids" table.  
Today we had our first trial run of "school" with our friend Grace. Grace came over to our house for a couple hours today and we did school together.  I planned out the activities this week then one day next week we will go over to Grace's house for "school" and her mom will plan out the activities.  It was something fun to try out and made for a great day of learning!
