We spent the morning with some friends at a new bounce house a few weeks ago. Kids loved it and this mama worked up quite a sweat playing on all the inflatables.
Nearly every photo I took ended up a big blur, which is a shame because you can't tell how much they were loving it.
Speaking of love, at one point Titus and Charlotte wandered away and we found them sharing snacks in the corner.
They are quite a pair!
We refueled afterwards at Subway. Morgan and Drew are cute as can be, even if Drew wouldn't part with his plastic silverware to save his life.
Monkey see, monkey do.
The morning of our snow Drew wasted no time checking it out. Being barefoot didn't bother him a bit.
Love the way the house looks when it snows. If only the inside looked this pristine!
Another one of the boys that afternoon when it was all melting away.
Titus and Mason being silly while watching Dora.
Drew has made a new buddy at Adam's basketball games. They play super heroes the ENTIRE game. The first time they spent a lot of time together Drew told him, "You are my new best friend and that means you are invited to my birthday party." So, so sweet.
He is actually adopted from Ethiopia and one of his older sisters is adopted from China. I've really enjoyed getting to know this family. A few practices into the season and Matt found out that both his assistant coaches have adopted. Who would've dreamed that all 3 coaches on an Upwards team would be adoptive fathers? Love that!
This is how I keep Titus occupied during games.
A few other game day pics:
We discovered some of Adam's 5T footie jams a while back and Drew was beside himself with happiness. I don't think they'd ever been worn because Adam stopped liking footie jams at age 3. Drew absolutely LOVES them.
And of course little brother demanded to be photographed next.
The only pic I got from our Super Bowl party and this doesn't even include everyone. It was a BIG group and we had a blast as always.
A couple more moments with RoRo during her recent visit.
T got these blocks for Christmas and the boys play with them every blessed day.
Our friends Jake and Jennifer invited us over for dinner a couple of weeks ago and we loved spending the evening with them. Wanted a picture of all the kids and Jake's pretty much a big kid so it was fitting for him to be in it too. :)
Kyle, Alex, and Morgan play at our house a lot of afternoons after school. It never fails that the boys end up shirtless...even when it's only 50 degrees.
Drew loves playing beauty salon (Ssssh...don't tell Matt!) and from time to time I let him loose in the bathroom and fix me up anyway he likes.
Goofing around one evening. It's what we do best.
Adam is starting to really love reading. I love finding him reading in random places.
These 2 got to stay up a little later than normal one night and battle it out over a game of Candyland. They really are best friends and it is the sweetest thing.
These 2 on the other hand...not so much. (Just keeping it real!) They love each other of course, but they are very similar temperament wise and they usually bicker nonstop. Earlier this week they brought out a tons of pillows and stuffed animals and jumped off the couch on their pile for THREE HOURS. I kid you not. They were so happy and loving on each other and I completely gave up on controlling the mess and just let them jump their little hearts out.
Out for a walk in the wooded area near our house. I imagine the boys will be down here building forts before I know it.
Adam got Battleship for his birthday and it is one of his favorite new games. We just have to make sure little brothers are far, far away when we play.
Titus got a container of those colored bath fizzies in his Christmas stocking. They'd used 4 or 5 so far this year and then one evening the little rascals dumped the entire container in the tub with them. They pretty much needed a bath to get cleaned up from their bath.
Had to snap a pic of Titus at the bus stop the other day...wearing his Elmo PJs a sunhat and eating a PopTart.
Went to dinner and a movie (Safe Haven) with a bunch of girlfriends last weekend. We had SO much fun and I laughed just about all night. Only pic I got was this grainy one of me and Allison at the movie, but I have to include it because I am absolutely crazy about this girl. So blessed to have such amazing girlfriends.
Here's Titus with another one of his girlfriends, Elizabeth. They go to preschool together and are both absolute stinkers. And cute ones at that...a terrifying combination!
We met up with Rachel and Charlotte at the mall on Thursday. C and T play together so well and they really do love each other even if they won't pose together despite their mamas best efforts.
Titus and I ran a couple errands and then met up with Matt for lunch that day at a yummy Mexican restaurant. We usually just come home after dropping Drew off at school, but it was pretty fun to stay out all morning with our favorite peeps.
And last, but not least... Parenthood is some pretty fun stuff.
