The Ice Men

Saturday morning the boys and I went to visit their cousins Wolfie and Otto. We had some delicious donuts, and then the boys wanted to play outside. There was a giant block of snow and ice on the back patio, so of course we had fun breaking it apart and showing the ice onto the grass.
First up, one of our great helpers, Wolfie, with his blue shovel.
I made all the boys pose for a group pic, then it was back in the house to warm up a bit. (It was probably 40 outside, but after a while, even that's a little chilly.)
Otto wasn't really in a rush to head back inside, so I was able to snap this cute picture of his adorable smile.
After all that hard work, the boys were pooped, so we watched a movie. Any guesses? Cars. So I snapped a few more group shots while I had a captive audience.
As usual, the best one is also the one where my camera either decided to snap the picture too close to the flash going off, or the shutter stayed open too long I tried boosting the color, but it only does so much. I'm going to have to try to figure out another way to get iPhoto to fix these. Or maybe it's time for a better camera. Either way, the boys had a blast together, and can't wait to see their cousins again soon.

During the thaw last weekend (and a little the week before), the boys had a great time running through the puddles and generally creating mischief of one kind and another. (Thanks, M Sendak.)
You can start to see here that Joey is already soaked up to his knees. And yes, it was cold enough to require the winter coats. I had to fight Joey to put his on.
Jacob loved running through them just as much as Joey. I think this was close to the last time through, and then home for some hot chocolate and dry clothes. Can't wait until the weather is warm with the puddles. The kids are never going to want to come inside! (It's already a fight with Jacob, even when it's only 20 degrees outside.)

Nutella, Anyone?

Any chance Nutella is looking for a new spokesperson? I know someone who would be perfect!

More St Patty's Day Fun

After a hard day at "work," the kids were excited for their Green River floats!
Joey had a sneak preview of the float Sunday night, and said to me, "Mommy, that treat was so delicious." They both enjoyed them tonight as well!
