Tractor Fun for the Whole Family

It was a gorgeous day to play outside with our cousins today. An even better day for tractor rides! Joey got it all started, but everyone got in on the fun.

Wolfie was excited, and even though it might not look like it here, he loved it!

Jacob couldn't wait for his turn. He laughed and laughed the whole time.

We think Otto had fun. By the end of it, he was at least grabbing the steering wheel.

We all know Joey loves the tractor. This was him helping Daddy put the tractor away.
Untitled
The boys had almost as much fun watching the tractor as they did actually riding on it.
Untitled
Aunt Danielle had fun hanging out with the boys, too.

Beautiful Day

These were pictures from before Joey suffered from heat stroke. OK, maybe slight exaggeration, but only slight. He was asleep before 6pm yesterday, running a fever of 102+, and slept through the whole night. Did I mention the inability to keep anything down? (That actually started on Saturday night.) The good news is his fever broke this morning, and he's eating and drinking just fine. Ah, the joys of kids.

Somebody loves to play with Mommy's camera case. (And he'll smile perfectly if you just tell him NO!)

Having some fun in his swimming pool. I believe this was the beginning of the end. I have to remember that when a 4-year-old is acting like a college kid in the pool (just chilling in his chair, not even trying to play), something's probably wrong.

I did capture this shot while Joey was still feeling good. I love the way the sun catches his hair. And yes, we still need to take him for his haircut.

Joey loves to give his little brother rides on his tractor. And Jacob loves to get them!

Happy 1st Birthday, Jacob!

It's hard to believe that it's already been a year since Jacob officially entered into our lives.
