Rainy Day outing

On another chilly, rainy day....we went to the science center and showed our guests around. These pics are all from the insect area:

Lucas's face... haha. I think he was looking at a mirror image of himself as a grasshopper unaware of Uncle Ryan taking his pic.This one of Micah is my favorite! He was on my shoulders in the butterfly house when a butterfly landed on him. He was so calm and loved looking at all of them, when this one landed on him he just watched till it flew off. So adorable!


Happy St. Patrick's Day

We love a good reason to do fun stuff, and St. Patty's Day is another. I found this link to free printables for sorting and graphing lucky charms. I don't normally buy sugar cereal, but the boys were in for a treat! I also bought mint chocolate chip ice cream under the premise that it's green. ( :
And one of the perks of our home, a huge cast iron claw footed bathtub. All the boys love to take baths in there, as you can see. Actually, so do I but with hubby gone it's not something I have been getting to enjoy. Next week Aunt Jackie and this little cutie Reagan are coming to stay with us until their house closes. (Uncle Ryan is driving up.) We are so excited to see the newest addition and .....to have family nearby!!! Yay!!


We are settling in to our new home. There is one problem with a ton of space...my toddler has the frequently used nickname of Sneakyboy. Micah is often in the snack cabinet, which is going to be moved to a higher one, I just haven't done it yet. There are also some ways you just can't baby-proof some homes. The day after we got here, my legs were so sore from carting things up and down stairs...but my body has finally gotten used to the stairs, which is good because it's the only workout I've been getting.
Last night we had some friends over despite our still messy-from-the-move house. They have kids just about the same ages as ours and all 4 big kids played hide and seek while we chatted. They were having so much fun we heard no complaints from the kids all evening, and it was so cute to see them decide to do it. We'd only played one one floor before, but they decided to play on 3 levels.
DH is leaving tomorrow for a week and a half...I'm a little nervous just being in a new place by myself so soon. Keeping myself busy is the only thing that makes the evenings pass better. Oh yea, I have an audiobook I've been ignoring, time to charge my ipod!
