Some Pictures Before I Am Too Big and Hot to Post

I have been very bad about posting our latest activities but it is hard not having a computer at my house. Oh well, one day.....

So here are some of our more recent activities and the accompanying pictures:

This is the only Easter shot we were able to get of both boys looking at the camera together. If I think getting 2 to look at the camera together is hard, I am sure that 4 will forever be frustrating.

We went to Cree's mom's house in Arizona for Cree's brother Hal's wedding. It was the first weekend in May and it was quite warm already. So the boys got to swim in grandma Kim's nice pool and spa. It was Tyler's first time to wear water wings and he did remarkably well. Of course for a child who likes to do everything on his own, water wings suit him just fine.

Okay now the best story from our wedding trip. Jensen was asked to be the ring bearer and his cousin who is 3 months older was the flower girl. Now two 3 year olds in a wedding is iffy at best. Or you can have what happened at this one. Jensen looked so cute in his little tuxedo that matched his daddy's. (Side note: getting a little tuxedo is so not as simple as it should be) Now when it came time for Jensen and Makaelee to walk down the sidewalk (we were at a golf course) Jensen stopped over at the water station they have for the golfers. He then proceeded to get a paper cup full of water for himself and Makaelee. This of course waylaid him for so long that grandma Kim had to go over and try to steer Jensen and Makaelee back over to the actual aisle to walk down it so the bride could come and get married. While this is going on I am sitting with Tyler who of course is screaming trying to get away from me so he can go and get a paper cup of water too, like his brother. (Notice in the picture the paper cup of water and Jensen's look which apparently means he was unconcerned that there was anyone else there) Needless to say it really wasn't such a tragedy, more funny than anything and the wedding went on. My only piece of advice is think long and hard before inviting 3 year olds to be part of the wedding party! (They are easily distracted!)

This last picture is just silly, but we got a new minivan (yes I am now a minivan mom) and of course the week after we got the van (arrg car payments!) our washer broke. The repairs were just about the same price as a new washer so I shopped around and found a good deal on a new one. So Cree dismantled the old one and the boys went inside the empty shell and thought they were pretty cute. So of course a picture.

Well that about sums it up for us, I am now at 25 weeks with these babies and continue to get a bigger belly every week. If I was really brave (which I am not) I would put a picture up of my ever rounding belly. So you'll just have to imagine 2 people inside that each weigh over a pound. I only have 10 weeks to go to be in the safe zone of 35 weeks, but I am hoping to go a bit beyond that just to make sure they are big enough to come home with me. Happy summer to everyone! I will be rolling around trying to stay cool, I hope everyone else has more fun plans than that sounds like!
