My Little Buttercups

I wanted to try to get a few cute shots of the kids while the weather has been nice. I have those gorgeous hydrangeas, and I thought they'd make a great backdrop.
Jacob had no problem posing for me.
Joey, not so much.
Jacob looked so cute in the swing, I had to snap a few while we were at the park. I love that little guy.

4th of July

We spent the afternoon of the 4th of July at John and Danielle's house. The kids had a ton of fun playing together. Wolfie was the bubble-master, and had might have had the most fun.
I'm not sure where the bubble gun was from, but it was one of the best I'd ever seen (in terms of consistent bubbles, especially given that a 2-year-old was operating it).
Jacob and Otto had a blast playing in the bubbles.
They also had fun playing with the buckets and trucks. And really anything we gave them.
I got this hat in the $1 section at Target. I couldn't believe how much fun Jacob had putting it on and taking it off.
Of course the highlight of the day was the red Mini Cooper. Joey had a blast driving it, and Jacob had a blast being chauffeured around. He actually stood up and held on to the windshield, squealing with glee the whole time!

Swim Suits

We planned a trip to Mystic Waters over the 4th of July weekend. Jacob and Joey were ready to go swimming!
Unfortunately, Jacob wanted to nap more than swim. Joey at least got in the pool this time. I'm hoping it gets better every time. In the meantime, they both loved wearing their suits and rash guards!

Pure Joy

I think we're going to have problems when Jacob gets older. Daddy's never going to be able to get off the tractor. Too many tractor rides. Maybe that's a good thing, though. Once the boys know how to drive the tractor, they can cut the grass for Daddy.

Uncle Wally's Little Helper

Grandpa wanted a new coat of paint in the living room, so he enlisted my husband to help move the furniture and help Uncle Wally by moving the scaffolding. Little did he know he'd have so many helpers!
Joey couldn't wait to paint. We gave him a dry brush and told him he could practice on the "white spots," otherwise known as the patched portions of the wall.
He was absolutely thrilled when Uncle Wally actually let him use the roller. The pictures I have are all blurry (stupid camera phone), but I think you can see the happiness (and concentration) on his face.
