Donuts are good, but the side-effects can be dangerous.
It's kind of like a frisbee, but a little different. It's soft and has a hole in the middle. We went to visit Grandma C today and she tried to teach us how to throw it. She also taught us how to say "No way Jose!"
You're supposed to throw it, but the motion is a little different.
We got it a couple times, but it was mostly luck.
There's no telling how this happened. Actually, there is. Daddy is how this happened.
Hi! So we were supposed to go to a Bazaar a see a camel and do all kinds of other things. We did go, and there was a camel, but everything else was for older kids so we went to a new park instead. There were these great circle windows all over the place.
It was so much fun, we couldn't help but scream.
We kinda ruled the park. Until the kids with the swords (plastic of course) showed up.
Then it was time for us to leave. We grabbed the nearest steering wheel and headed for home.
Not really. Let's call them evening games. Summer is coming to an end so it's getting darker earlier. Daddy gave us some pretty awesome rides in the cart before we went inside.
He also played a little soccer with us. He's no Pele, but he's not bad.
Whoa! These can fly off the stairs if you roll 'em just right.
Just don't forget to park all your vehicles in the garage when you're finished.
Then, and only then, can you blow more bubbles. I got one, see, it's up near the top of the photo.
Mommy was super busy today so we spent the day with Daddy. We went to a new park that was HUGE!. We climbed and climbed and climbed . . .
. . . and slid and slid and slid down some pretty great slides.
However, once we crossed through this tunnel and went up a few more stairs, we came to the . . .
Most people don't get a chance to ride a slide like this very often. We did today with Daddy. While we couldn't go alone (c'mon, look at it, it's a little frightening), Daddy put us on his lap and we rode what is probably the fastest slide ever, together.
It was homecoming at the high school near our house so they had a parade the went through our neighborhood. We rolled up right next to our friend Wayne when it started to rain. All the kids huddled together under giant umbrellas . . .
. . . Until the parade began and it candy started falling from the sky with the rain . . .
. . . it cleared out pretty quick which was good. We could really concentrate on all the fire trucks, police cars and people walking by.
We got some candy and some stickers (to save our teeth lady said) of our own. It was pretty fun, despite the rain.
Daddy discovered some of these photos he took with his phone while we were on our trip in August. Check this out:
Fries are pretty good with nothing on them. But dip them in some ice cream . . .
. . . pure tasty heaven.
We got pretty good at napping in the car. It was the most efficient way to pass the time.
We had a pretty fun time hanging out with Mommy and Daddy in the car though.
Don't forget about the rides through our hotel on luggage carts. That deserves a second look. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Our neighbor Carol from down the street brought us these awesome toys. This one is a little truck thing that is big enough to ride. It has a disclaimer on the back that says no to.
We rode it all over the house. What's a disclaimer?
What was almost as good as the truck was the contents of the truck. LEGOS!!!! There are containers that fit into the truck and carry so many Legos.
Rare post from Mommy here.
I just have to tell you all about the best day ever.
After a pretty rough return from our trip for the last few weeks, we're wrapping up what I have to say is one of the best days in a LONG time.
We went to the park and zoo this morning, where the boys really behaved SO well. They had a fantastic time. They listened the best they could (considering their age and need for instant gratification). They saw lots of fun animals. And best of all (for me), we were joined by some other Mothers of Multiples Moms. I organize playdates for the group, and they've yet to be wildly successful, but four moms today was great!
We came home, and Charley took a longer than two-hour nap, which is so rare these days. I got all kinds of work done while they slept (for a new Girl Scout workshop on cake decorating I'm doing tomorrow).
Then came the awesome afternoon.
At snack they cracked me up. When I gave them a bite of a leftover Twinkie from their kids' meal at the football game Saturday, and told them it was cake, Charley said "Happy Birthday!" (I think he was making up for Mommy not yet sending a card to Uncle Rainer for his 30th.)
We stayed home for the afternoon to play. They actually PLAYED... TOGETHER for long, long minutes at a time. They chased and ran on the porch, and in and out of the kitchen for 25 minutes or more... then after some outside time, they played together jumping in Jax's crib for 35 minutes!!!
And do you know what I was able to do?! I got a complete dinner on the table for ALL OF US... AT THE SAME TIME... including wine for Jason and me. (That's been years.) (And this was no mac'n'cheese. We had tomato basil tart- aka "pizza." That means even making crust, rolling dough, cutting tomatoes, baking for more than an hour... and I could do it... WHILE THEY WERE AWAKE!!! (And I even got in a phone conversation with Uncle Toddo!)
What a day!
Oh, to dream that more of these lie ahead!
We met a bunch of MIZZOU alumni (and Grandma C) on Saturday to watch the football game at a "restaurant". Before and after the game we worked on our skills at Golden Tee. We wore our Tiger costumes too, but Mommy and Daddy didn't get any pictures of us wearing them.
Our good friend, and MIZZOU alum, John came too. He gave us just the boost we needed. MIZZOU didn't need any help, winning 69-17. Sounds like KU could've used some help though.
We went to a park the other day called Teddy Bear Park. As you could guess, there are teddy bears everywhere.
You should always approach with caution. Most of them are friendly, but you just never know.
They really were lurking around every corner (or boat).
This park was just plain awesome. It hard to put into words just how awesome it is. So check out these photos. There was a giant spider web thing to climb on . . .
. . . lots and lots and lots of sand . . .
. . . stairs to climb on with more than enough ropes to grab onto . . .
. . . a super-cool bridge to walk across . . .
. . . a giant bubble to stick your head into . . .
. . . and a tunnel to walk through. WHEW!
The other day, some guys came to Mr. Disk's house across the street and cut down one of his trees. It was the coolest thing we'd ever seen.
Can you find the tree falling?
There it is, laying across the street. Daddy is definitely out of practice with his picture-taking.
