National Corn on the Cob Day!

Of course we had to celebrate "National Corn on the Cob" Day. 
We got some very yummy corn, especially for this time of year.  Here's just a few pictures of the celebration.
 So sad this one's blurry!

And yep, even Slick had some!  He told daddy, "Dad, I think this is actually the first time I EVER ate a vegetable ALL by MYSELF!:  HAHA!  Not really, but I love that he at least tried it.  Oh and by the way, he said, "It kinda tasted good!" 

Teach it to me Tuesday-1

Today we talked about tornadoes.  Then we made one!  The boys loved this.

We started with a jar, added water and a drop of dish soap! 
Then they started shaking!  Yep, that's it!  

 And tada, there it is!  A tornado in a jar! 
I love Slick's face in this picture!  Pretty much sums up the aw they were in at the sight of this!

Make it Monday-1

So day 2 of summer break brought more RAIN!  The boys are really hoping for some relief SOON!  In the mean time, we're adjusting the best we can, inside!
Today was our first "Make it Monday".  We decided it's time for them to learn the responsibility of handling money so we made some "jars" to help us out. 
 In progress...
 Spike's "finished project"

 Slick's "finished project"
I hope they work!

Field Trip Friday 1

So, the first Friday of Summer Vacation brought RAIN, LOTS of rain.  So for our first field trip, we had to stay indoors for sure. 
Can't forget the umbrellas!

First stop, the library!  We needed to get new cards our "new" library!  That took a while for 2 little boys anxious to check out the new place. 
This little guy said to me, "Mom, I'm just having so much fun reading these books!" 
Spike read to us all about "Big Rigs" the whole way to have lunch with Daddy.  We actually DID learn something.  Did you know that the size of a semi-truck's steering wheel is bigger than an extra large pizza?  Yep, it sure is!
 Lunch with daddy was the highlight!
 Yep, still raining, but that didn't stop us!  What a GREAT first day!  Let's keep it up, boys!

Birthday Present time!
 FINALLY get to ride!

 Think he likes it?  What 8 year old wouldn't like a BRAND NEW bike for their birthday?
 Yes, he DOES wear a helmet!  Daddy was watching him again!  He just HAD to try it out and couldn't get the helmet fast enough!  Oh boys will be boys!

And yep, we're getting ready for Valentine's Day around here!  Like mother like son!  This is what Slick made me today!  LOVE that they get excited too!

What a day!
Spike got a journal for his birthday.  Today's post said, "Mom I love the most!"  AW!  And the heart is for me to color for him!  LOVE this kid!  Too bad he has to always make a silly face!
Then if was off to "Pancake and Pajama" day with Slick.
 Of course, no special day is complete with out a picture with the "snow princess"!  Everybody say, "AW!"

 And to end the day, this makes mommy VERY sad!
 This was our LAST ride in our stroller!  Slick STILL LOVED to ride it to the bus stop!  It was a very nice day so I cleaned out the garage.  Since we're moving I posted a picture to see if anyone could use this very special baby item!  It's my LAST one!  And daddy said we couldn't move it to our new house!  So thankfully a friend of ours was willing to take it!  I sure hope she enjoys it as much as we did!

Bad mommy!!
So I totally forgot to take Spike for his "birthday donut" yesterday!  How could that happen?
Well, we did it today!  Yep, a white lightening!  He was so kind to understand!  This birthday just doesn't end!

January 28, 2013

Already for the birthday boy to wake up!
 He liked his "surprise" better than his brother!  He didn't want to take it down!
 Of course, none other than Red Robin for dinner!
 But all of a sudden after only 1 bite of Mac n' Cheese, he felt sick, so we went home to lay on the couch for the night!  Kind of a bummer of a birthday day!  Oh well, at least AFV makes it a little better!
 Always in the mood for "funny faces" though!
Happy Birthday, dude!

January 27, 2013

 Just too funny!  I ran out to the grocery store and came home to this!  When I asked daddy why he wasn't watching him, he said, "I was!" Typical!  HAHA!

Birthday Party time!
Spike turns 8 on Monday!  Today is the day we will celebrate with the family!
He asked for a race car cake!  And his favorite colors are blue and green!

 LOVE it!  Thanks to Gramma Dale!
 And thanks to Grandma Vawter, we have a new hat!  I really wish I would have been videoing!  He was SO EXCITED!  Oh and I love it too!
 And of course no birthday in this house is complete with out LEGOS!

 Pause for a self-portrait!
I thought this picture was great!  It looks likes the race car is speeding away!
