Hey Lance Armstrong ;)

Adrian got a new bike a couple weeks ago, and is loving life! We're so proud of him! I've been taking all the kids to the bike park (which is awesome!) Adrian could ride for hours. Hopefully we'll take off his training wheels next year. I'm not ready for the bumps and bruises yet. He's got a helmet but refuses to wear it, I will conquer that battle next week ;) pick and choose.. pick n choose....

It even has a real stop light... how cool

A beverage break

Preston's tricycle holds his interest for about 3 minutes ;) Then it's just run and play.

I can't wait to be a big (bigger) boy!!

This is how we ROLL - 3 deep ;)

This is what my grocery cart looks like.. not too much room for groceries ;) but we make work. I have to put most of the fruit, cheese and anything the kids really like.. goes under the cart. Our last trip, Preston ate a plum and part of the bag it was in.
I use suckers for the boys when we check out.. that way they aren't pulling candy off the shelves and begging for "Candy Please!"
I have to say tho... these boys have been awesome on our "out-n-about" adventures. No major meltdowns or crying fits (now that I said that out loud and typed it, I'm sure it will happen all of next week ;)

Art Class

Tracing shapes, cutting shapes, then gluing shapes... pretty simple and these two think it's so much fun. Any project that requires the use of a glue stick is a winner in their book ;)

It's so nice they're getting to that age where we can do art projects (my favorite!) and they actually enjoy it... AND I'm not doing 90% of the work anymore ;)

Happy Birthday Kellen! 1-2-3

It's official... for the next 4 months we will have a 1,2 and 3 yr old.

I can not believe our baby is ONE!! It makes me sad ;( and sometimes... just sometimes I want one to stay a baby forever.We had a fun July 4th/Birthday party. Not many pics tho, I sooo need a new camera (hint, hint, my birthday present dear sweet husband of mine ;)
Over half of my pics were too dark or blurry, bummer! But we celebrated and had fun, the kids had WAY too much sugar and were almost unbearable the rest of the night, it was meltdown, tantrum city at our house. No more excess of sugar here.. I am for real!

Adrian's hands stealing cake are in every pic

Adrian helping himself.. over and over again

Nana and Kellen.. ththththur and slobber

pre-party checking out the bouce house (thanks to our friends parents for letting us borrow it!) all the kids loved it!!

He held these 2 balloons for over an hour, just like this

my handsome one year old!

Workin on our Fitness

The other day we had an awesome fall-like day, so I took the boys on a nice walk, stroll...run. Adrian and Preston did most of the running ;)

I tried and tried to get all 3 to look at the camera at the same time... then they were soooo over it, and totally DONE with me & moving on now.. mom!

I think Adrian might be a runner? Every time a jogger would pass us, he'd start running after the person saying "look, I running too" then he'd stop and wait for us slow folk to catch
up with him.

This video of Preston cracks me up.. this little guy has the funniest little run, he swishes his arms back forth and giggles every time he runs anywhere. A total cuteepatootie!
