Slumber Party ... Well An Attempt At One!

So the adults were trying to get the boys to lay down, have some popcorn, watch Toy Story and hopefully quietly drift to sleep ...
Trying to get them to lay down

So far so good ...

Such sweet little things!

It's been about 10 minutes now and we are out in the living room sitting on the couch, talking about life, and reminiscing about our early years.  We hear a thud ... then some giggles ... wo we sneak in to see this:

Needless to say, they never went to sleep!

It's Been Hot Lately!!!

Fourth of July Weekend

We started our weekend off with a playdate with Mason.  I went to junior high and high school with his mommy and I'm really excited we have found each other as friends again!

Then Sunday, Colton and I went to the zoo!  We visited the new tiger exhibit, rode on the train (probably his favorite part of the day), played in the Splash Park, and visited the gift shop where Colton picked out an Animal Train set.  We had a good time together!

On Monday, we ventured out in the rain to see the Brownsburg Parade.  We got a great spot under a big tree which kept us out of the rain.  We had a little breakfast picnic and then enjoyed the parade along with Neemaw and Papaw.

We came home for a little while and decided that we needed to have Neemaw and Papaw over for a cookout.  We played in the pool and had a nice afternoon!

Clever little booger!

Who's Drink Is That?

I got skills!

Happy 4th of July

23 Months ... He's almost 2... Can you believe it?!?

This month went by super fast!  Colton has become an amazing little talker.  We always get comments about how well he talks for only being 2.  Here are some funny things he says now:
  • Toy Stoy-dee-dee-dee (Toy Story)
  • Mee-mo (Nemo)
  • Evil Pook-choo (Evil Dr. Porkchop from Toy Story) - This is usually followed by Colton saying "That's Ham"
  • Drag-it (Dragons) - He likes to watch "How to Train A Dragon"
  • Tap-it-er (Caterpillar)
  • "I sharted" - for those of you who aren't familiar with this term it's when you fart and leave a little behind ... yeah Chad taught him that.
  • Will tell you "I dry" or "I squishy" or "I wet" when you ask him about the status of his diaper
Our first attempt at potty training - FAILED
Colton was tapping his spoon against Bumpaw's and saying "Cheers"
Lock up  your daughters!!
