Blessing weekend

We spent the weekend playing with Dad and the Fredricksons, making it a weekend for the books. 
Cute cousins on the temple grounds.
A twin temple party!

Little Ollie was asleep, just under the camera. But
we just had to document the evening.
Backyard Taco, for the win!

Happy blessing day, sweet Oliver.
You are so very, very loved.

Just a little bit of dentistry,
because he can!


The "quadruple chin".
The "hand over your heart".

The "kissy face" guys!

Now touch your legs, everyone!
Okay, now look fancy!

The "look mad", guys!
-can you tell who was coming up with
our poses?
NAAAAHHH-Sih Betttin-ya!!

January ends

Guys, I say this every month, but I honestly don't know where the time goes and I am sick and tired of it going by so quickly! It needs to slow down because I just can't keep up. But at least every day is fun enough that I don't want it to end! Three kids takes a lot of energy to keep up with, but every minute is exciting. So far 2018 is looking to be a good year. 
Such handsome boys.
The boys take full advantage of my
laundry piles and put all of
their cars to sleep.

Handsome baby

Another day feeding the ducks :)
Mini photo shoot for Dad.

Gosh, I totally lucked out.

We love the "bubble" park.

Another week of lessons!

Thumbs up!

such great boys and such best friends.

10 minutes has never been so fun! ...or has it?

I beat Josh in Dr. Mario
(personal level is irrelevant)
so life is good!

Handsome boys!

We have a thumb sucker!

I hope I never forget our days at the park.

He is such a good baby!

Miles, teaching Ollie about life.

Benji is such a loving brother!

Benji was SO proud of his outfit, we
just had to document it. 

2018, here we come!

It is always nice to get home after a long vacation and back into the swing of our usual routine. It was a little slow coming though, because we all came back from Idaho sick! We took it easy though with a lot of reading of books and playing at parks. 2018 is bound to be great! 
Entertaining themselves, like champs.
NBD, just reading a book. 
The boys love their new (Daddy's old)
bunk beds! I can't believe they are that big...
Bathtime for Oliver!

By now, the ducks probably know us by name.

We often have the library to ourselves.

Sweet Oliver is a champ on outings.

Photo shoot with my sweet boys

This one makes me laugh every time.
Rockets at the park are ALWAYS a good idea.

Miles surprised Dad with a message. 

:) I got included too. I will have to be sure to remind
him of these when he is 16.

They are such good writers!

Again, such a champ.

Josh had to suffer through the 70
degrees, but we loved his company!

New bikes for some happy boys!

Home Depot Day!
Gosh, what a cutie.

Totally zonked at church.

Sand castles make for a good day.

January park days are the best days.

I have the hardest time putting him down.

Luckily Dad was there to help us out.
Poor Milo, took quite the fall at the
park and face-planted into the stairs.

All better!

Oliver weighed 13.76 pounds at his two month
appointment and was 28 inches long. He is starting
to coo and interact with us so much more. We love
his smiles and think he is growing much too quickly!
He is so loved!

Another park day, for the win!
Some amazing rock climbers, right here!
"Thumbs" up!
Obviously we spend our free time playing
games instead of cleaning our house.
We love Ollie smiles.

But goodness, a sleeping baby is just good for the soul.

We found a fun new park! It might just
be the new favorite.
They were so brave!!
Miles made it to the very top!! And
my heart was pounding the whole time.
Sleepy baby

Happy baby

Their first day of swimming lessons.
It was a little out of their comfort zones,
but they were so brave and did so well.
We just had to show the park to dad on his day off.

Such good climbers!
