Park with the Little Potty

Instead of naming this park after the color of the slides, it's "the park that has the little potty that Adam can use."

15 Months

Mason had his 15 month check-up today. He is 21lb 11oz and 30 3/4". Poor little peanut had to have 5 shots to make up for missing his 12 month shots. He was sick the day of that check-up, so he wasn't able to get them that day. He's taking a nice nap now.

Purple Park

The boys name parks based on what color the slides were. So, we went to Purple Park today.
This little girl loved Mason- she took him all around the playground(with Mommy staying super close, of course).


Adam is walking around the house, carrying my bridal portrait and saying "Ta-da! My mommy is a princess!"

We took Jack and Adam to Idlewild today. Mason spent the day with Grammy. There are some things that he could do at Idlewild, but not a whole lot. Jack and Adam are tall enough to go on most of the "big" rides, as long as they are with an adult. Mas would have been left out and one of the boys would have had to sit out, too.

On the balloon ride- it was too much spinning for Daddy. We went on the ferris wheel before this. Adam liked it, as long as we were moving around quickly, but did NOT like when we stopped to let people on and off.
On the motorcycles in Racoon Lagoon

Dino Soars
Adam rode the cars a few times- the park was not crowded at all. No/very short lines, so they were able to go on things multiple times.
On the boats. When we went last year, we were afraid Adam would jump out of the boat.
Bumper Cars. Daddy thought that Jackie would drive around in circles or get stuck in a corner and Mommy thought that Adam wouldn't push down on the gas to make his car go. They proved us wrong and were good drivers.

Playing games.

We also went to Soak City, where the boys loved playing on the waterslides. No pics, though, since we were in the water with them.
After that, we headed to Jumpin' Jungle. The boys burying Daddy in the ball pit
Jackie on the rope swing: Don't let go!!!!
A very fun day!


We took Jack and Adam to Idlewild today, while Mason spent the day with Grammy. The big boys went on all the big rides and had a blast. Pics to come whenever we finally get our computer problems fixed.

Adam and I were racing Daddy and Jackie down the big slide that you have to use the potato sack sort of thing to go down and Jackie told us "We have a special winning blanket and we're cheaters!"

We had time to go to SoakZone for once and the boys loved going down all the waterslides.

More Boy Stuff

Jack wanted his hair blown dry after his bath tonight, so I told him to put his pjs on and then I would blow dry his hair. He came over to me like he was ready for me to dry his hair, but then he turned around and said he needed help. I laughed and I said I didn't know his bum was hanging out.

He looked at me over his shoulder and said "I'm showing it to the world."

Boy Stuff

You have been warned.

Adam: (right after farting) What's that noise?
Mom: I don't know Adam, what is that noise?
Adam: It come from my pants.

Then, today, Jack was teaching Adam to pee standing up. Adam saw him doing that outside and asked, in his best Isabella from Phineas and Ferb voice, "Whatcha doooin?" And then wanted to try, too.

Boys are fun. :)

Always Hungry

No surprise that Adam told me that he is hungry. But, when I asked him what he wanted, he put his index finger to his chin and said "Hmmmm.....A Coconut!"

Messy Adam

If there is dirt, he'll find it.
Love the black icing!

Good Buddies

Jackie with his good buddies, Zachary and Christopher. The three have been fast friends for the past three years. This school year, they are all on completely different schedules, so it is going to be hard to find time to get together. :(
Here are the three musketeers, back when Jackie was 2.

Smiley Boy

Jen took this pic at Matt's birthday party.

2 Down, 1 to Go

It's been quite a while since Adam has had an accident, so I think it's safe to say that he is successfully potty-trained. He does need help getting dressed afterwards, but that's not a big deal at this point.

After every time that he goes, he says "I did it!!!!"

Playing Around

Waiting for Daddy to finish his coaches' meeting.

Bob the Builder

Adam and I went to a "building" class at the library this morning, while Jackie was at camp and Mason was with Grammy. The kids had to build different things according to the teacher's instructions.

As Adam was building, he was singing the theme song to Bob the Builder: Bob the Builder! Can we fix it? Bob the Builder! Yes, we can!

He had the other kids in the class singing, too.

Last Day of Camp

Today was Jackie's last day of Sport Shorts camp. He had so much fun learning to play different games. He can't wait to go back next summer. And next summer, Adam can join in the fun!

Field Trip Day

The preschool camps took a bus to Fun Fore All to play in the ball area and mini-golf. Here they are, coming back from the buses. Jackie is skipping up the hill. He had a great time.

Busy Morning

After dropping off Jackie at camp for his field trip day, we went to get our morning cookie and then to the library. Adam went to a class for preschoolers while Mas and I browsed around. Afterwards, we went to the park across the street from the library.

We got lunch and then waited on the playground by Jackie's camp for the buses to pull in.

Lost Backpack

Jackie misplaced his backpack at camp last Thursday. He was upset and told one of the camp counselors "Oh, no! Now I'm not going to be able to go to school anymore!"

I've checked lost and found, but it hasn't turned up. Jack was wondering today where it disappeared to and I thought I'd ask his opinion about what he thought happened to it.

"Well, I had it in the locker room and then I had to go to the bathroom and while I was in the bathroom, I heard my backpack say the magic words and disappear."

What are the magic words?

"Feliz CumpleaƱos."

Happy birthday, little backpack. Guess you turned one and ran away.

Yes, Again

Second week of Jack's Sport Shorts camp, so more finding things for the little boys to do.
Adam, waiting anxiously for noon for the water to turn on.

Mason went in after his snack. No pics of him in there, since I had to stay right on top of him while he was in there due to how slippery it is. I was so not prepared for him go all through the splash pad and ended up soaking wet.

Carnival at Camp

The kids had a carnival at camp today, playing games and getting their faces painted. Does Jackie ever pick anything besides Batman?

Adam and Mason's Zoo Trip

Another day of camp for Jackie and it's off to the zoo for the little boys.
What Adam is looking at: this guy usually stays hidden in his house. I think this is the first time we've actually seen him out and about.
Adam is getting big: a little taller than a baby elephant.

Adam's favorite part of the zoo: the penguins
Mason liked them, too.
Head first!

I don't think the boys were even aware that these rides are at the zoo, since we never go on them. But, Adam got a special treat since Jack was at camp.
