Family Fun–Kites

The other day while shopping I found kites for $1 a piece. I was so excited since when they’re a dollar if they only last a day (because the boys inevitably always find a way to get the string all tangled, pull off the tail or lose it in a tree) then I’m not so sad and it is a dollar that we had a lot of fun with.

This day was no different! After naps we set up the kites and headed outside for some fun. When Daddy realized what we were doing he came out to join us and then decided that we should go to the park. We packed up the car and headed to the park closest to us and had a blast. Nathan was “done flying kites” and chose to play on the toys and Danny joined him. Sammy was still very much into the kites and ran until we were all frozen, picked up a $5 pizza, had a picnic in the van and then headed over to Costco to get some ice cream (our latest splurge are the $1.50  delicious hand dipped chocolate ice cream cones—they’re big enough to share; the boys had the frozen yogurt this time) and then we finally headed home. It was a great day off from work and lots of fun flying kites!

Enjoy the pictures…

Sammy’s 1st Day of T-ball

IMGP0267Sammy told us some time last year that he wanted to play every sport! Sounds good to us we just want him to be happy…

In the fall we did soccer and now we signed him up to play T-ball with his cousin Troy and friend Lincoln from church. It should be lots of fun! He had his first practice on Saturday and he was all smiles. I definitely need to work with him a bit ;) to build up that upper arm strength. His team is the Dodgers and he is so excited. I think that it will be a great season!

Danny–17 months

I’ve been so busy I haven’t even read other people’s blogs and I just realized that I haven’t blogged since before Christmas! Ahh! So, here is one of my catch up posts…

Danny_sittingDanny is definitely one of “the boys” now. He likes to run right behind them, ride on all of the toys with them and chatters up a storm (he’ll fit right in there too!)

Some of the words that we can understand are: mama, dada, ball (said about 100 times a day anytime he sees a ball anywhere), candy, Sah-y (Sammy), Nay-Nay (Nate), shoes, hat, hot, and his newest word, pee-pee.

Danny_toyHe is a silly little guy who is a joy to all who see his giant smile. He is starting to display certain likes, dislikes and independence. He is also at the scary, “I’ll run into the street at any moment just to see what you’ll say” stage. Sigh.

He’s up to 10 teeth (woo hoo!) and loves to eat spaghetti, zucchini, oatmeal (and yes, last night he mixed them all together…fun!), tomatoes, apples, pears, and pretty much anything else that I feed him.

Danny_SwingHe adores his brothers and will jump on them to start a wrestling match! We are very lucky to have three, great boys! I just can’t believe how big he is getting…time flies doesn’t it?
