Crisscross, applesauce!

I just learned a new phrase. ;-)

I'm kind of obsessed with this drink

I buy like 8 bottles at a time and Jon and I finish them in, probably, a couple of weeks. The grapefruit is by far the best flavor. Blood orange is a good back up when the grapefruit is out. ;-)

Dirty Boys

At one point all three boys were sitting in the dirt playing with their hands. I just wasn't quick enough on the draw.

All done :)

So colorful and pretty!

A gorgeous Friday evening on the lawn

As you can tell, I'm going through all of my old pics this weekend. While digging, I found these, which I had completely forgotten about. I took these pics on a Friday evening, after we had gotten home from school/work. The weather had warmed up and it was still beautiful and light outside so I decided to pull a blanket out and sit us out on the lawn to play for a bit.

This was about 8 weeks ago (and this holiday weekend, the first "official" weekend of the summer, it's raining.  Go figure!).

What amazes me most is how much older Callum already looks now vs. in these pics just last month! If I wait any longer to post these, people might not believe these are really of him.

Enjoy :)

The sky was absolutely gorgeous that night

Logan playing some hoops ... with his volleyball  ;-)

He brought out all of his favorite toys.  The rocket was a MUST.

As were his cars...

And this ring-toss game...

As he was showing me each of these cars, he was telling me that one of them was for each of us in the family.  I can't remember now who was supposed to have which car.  So, let's say this one was Logan's.

And this one was Mommy's.

And this one was Callum's.

And this one was Daddy's.  *shrug*

Grover enjoying the time outdoors too.

Who is this chubby baby?!?

He looks way too young to be MY child.

Seriously though, who IS this guy??

Chubby, short and baby cute.

Logan coming in close to play with his brother.

Logan LOVES hugging Callum.  Callum isn't quite sure what to think.

He certainly looks like a big kid here doesn't he?!

And this one looks like a BABY!

Our adorable innocent little baby.

I'm pretty sure this was supposed to be a squished fishy face.

My handsome boy.

My other handsome boy.

Ahhhhhh yes. Life is good.

Mama's Day

A few pics I pulled up from Mother's Day three weeks ago.

A lazy Sunday morning in bed with my boys (the best time of the day!) Both boys are holding onto their dragons - so cute!

The boys were taking turns sitting in Logan's sofa chair - we decided it was probably time to buy one for Callum

See, this just can't be comfortable!  ;-)

My mom's birthday also happened to fall on Mother's Day this year so we met up with my parents and Zane for dinner in Palo Alto

All decked out in their Hawaiian gear (they just got back from a trip to Hawaii)

Callum was fascinated with the mirror (behind Jon)

Swords, lightsabers or eating utensils?  Hard to say.

Or perhaps drumsticks  :)

Callum getting comfy with Uncle Zane and Zabuton (while I scarf down my dinner!)

I think next year will be 50 years that they've been together.  A fantastic couple to model after.

Happy Birthday Mom! And, Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mothers out there!

Easter 2011

I never did a proper post about our Easter weekend last month.  Jon's parents, sisters (Sarah and Catherine), brother (Curtis) and his two kids (Luke and Stella) all drove up to visit for the weekend.  Jon took Friday off so the boys could spend time with their cousins and family.  We spent the weekend allowing the kids to play to their hearts' content, catching up on family gossip, eating way too much food and coloring (and hiding and hunting) Easter eggs for the kids.

It was a lot of fun!  Logan and Callum totally enjoyed the visit from their cousins.  Logan and Luke, especially, really hit it off and Logan still talks about his cousins day after day.  :)

Thanks for the great visit guys!  Here are a few of my favorite pics from the visit - click on the link at the very bottom to see the full album  :)
