Weekends are the Best!

At the Murphy home, we love the weekend. It isn't too much different than other days of the week except for the fact that we have Josh around a lot more than normal. Which makes things more exciting for everyone! The boys love having some extra time with him and I definitely don't mind having an extra adult around for a few days. It is pretty great for all of us!
Benji loves extra Dad snuggles
on Sundays

Counting down the hours
until Dad comes home!
Miles wouldn't sit still even
though I tried to convince him
that it was nap-time.

Benjamin hasn't fallen asleep
on Dad's lap since he was
a little baby. Precious!

Sunday Family Selfie!
Trying to entertain ourselves
while Dad get's some extra sleep.
Josh always has the most fun
games to play.

The boys adore their daddy.

Although we all love the weekend, we tend to stay pretty busy throughout the week so that the next weekend can come faster. Josh stays busy studying hard at school and the boys and I find new activities to do to make time go faster.
We go find new toys at the Mall.
And then fall asleep in the car
because mom loses track of time.
Josh stays busy with a lot of volunteer work
on top of his load of homework. What a guy!

While dad is out saving the world (the teeth of the world)
we are all stuck inside (literally). 

We try out finger painting!
Miles and Benji

They were a little hesitant at first.

But quickly got the hang of it!

Benjamin, my little Bob Ross.
Miles was not a big fan of
the whole "finger"/body painting thing.
When daddy isn't around, we color on
the walls, but only when 
mom isn't looking...
And we misplace our shoes.

Basically, Josh keeps us all in line and we look forward to the sense of peace and order the weekend brings when he is around again. By Sunday we are all pumped up and ready for the new week. Thanks for all you do, Joshua!

They take after their dad

They love watching a good movie.
They love superheroes.
Miles and Benji
They love showing off their
six packs.
Benji and Miles
They love going down slides.
Milo and Benji
They are very good at finding
ways to cool off. 

 These boys love their daddy and are following in his footsteps already. I couldn't be more proud and I am so happy that they have such an amazing hero to look up to. We love Dad!
And they are lovers of good food.
Miles and Benji 
They love each other's company.
Benjamin and Miles
And they love being outside.
They are Super CUTE!

They are very good at problem solving.
Benji really wanted the ball that mom couldn't reach.

They have a deep love for books and brushing teeth.

Milo and Benji

They are all pretty darn easy-going.

But it's hard to get them to smile for pictures.
Benji and Milo

Being a superhero is all in a day's work. 
It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it!
Benji and Milo

Daily Adventures of Benji and Milo

My little adventurers

Benji and Milo
love spinning wheels.

 We found an amazing park across the street from the Gilbert temple with a huge, open field. We love going there to just run around. Although, we will have a lot more fun when it isn't 110 degrees outside.
Snuggles with Benji!

Miles didn't feel like smiling.

Or taking any pictures in general.

I found a scorpion underneath
the stroller. YUCK!

Miles and Benji LOVE when daddy gets home.

Sleepy boys. 

They don't believe me when I tell them that they
are too big to fit in a box together. 

As long as we are all happy, we don't complain!
Miles and Benji

A little game of hide n' seek before bed.
Benji and Milo

Such good hiders!

Where could the boys be? Luckily dad was home to help me find them.
