Story Time!!!!

We I am obsessed with going to the Wednesday Story time at our local library.  Hank crawled up into the librarians lap the very first day, and the second, but the third day I bribed him with Smarties!  I mean he is currently an only child and we don't typically read to him across the room, he is normally in our laps so I guess he thought he needed to assume the position yep, right there in the lap of a total stranger, I can't imagine where he got his confidence from??   It is so cute to listen to the stories, sing the songs, and sit on carpet squares.  My personal favorite time is when they do the felt board, the pictures are so vivid, and I heart the craft at the end.  The first day it was a pirate and one of the legs was made out of a popsicle stick, too cute for words. 

We started checking out books the second time we went and he loved reading over the week we had them.  I made a little library books bucket so we don't mix them up with our books from home, and he can tote them to and fro with ease, and it's pretty cute I may add..... 

Here are a few pictures from our different outings....
 The Librarians start off with 2 stories,
 Then some silly songs, and a felt board story, ending with one last time.

The last activity is coloring!  This cute little pirate has a wooden popsicle stick, PRESH!!

 Hank loves to play puzzles...
 and look out the window at the pond, he likes to look for "tish" (fish). 
Hank started putting his arm around Taylor today at story time, where do kids come up with this stuff, it is too funny! They grow so quickly it is amazing.  Here are a few pictures from our Story Time outings.  Now the newest thing is going to McDonalds play area after the library to eat and play with our friends.  Hank climbed today to the top of the slide from the wrong direction and wouldn't come down because he was having way too much fun, so yes.... I had to climb all the way up through all the twisiting tunnels to find him, he thought that was hilarious!  I bet everyone else watching also thought that, thanks Hank!

I love to type like mommy.
 Hank and Taylor!
Color Time!
 Can't believe he did this.... hahaha!

So much FUN!

Family Pictures on the Beach

Of course you can't leave the beach without the family pictures..... So we planned ahead with outfits and camped out on the beach for about an hour to make some family pictures with Lee and Jenn, the only thing that is missing is a picture of the 6 of us....

 Silly boys!
My 2 sweetest boys!

This was a wonderful trip, I can't wait for many more to come!

Day 3 at the Beach!

By the third day, these boys were a little tired.  A little sleep deprived, and poor Hayes had been sick, it was just getting to be alot for a baby to handle.  But, they still had fun!  The last day we took pictures after nap of course with their new clothes on.

Day 2 at the Beach!

Hank was sooo into Hayes at the beach, Hayes isn't into all the cuddling like Hank, he needs his space.  So, this is a perfect way to see how much Hank loves to hug, and how much Hayes, hates it! Haha. The boys did great on day 2, we went out early, and came in early then it rained....

That night we went to eat at a Restraunt called Lambert's.  It was a cute place, they had a very long wait but it was fun and worth it. They had a big wooden train set the boys played on while we waited.  The portions were HUGE, and the pass arounds were so good, we all needed 
to be wheel burrowed out of there.

Day 3 to come....

Toes in the Water, Butt in the SAND!

This is actually when we first got to the beach, this should have been my first post, oops! Literally as soon as those sweet toes hit the sand it was like FREEDOM!  No more car ride, just toys, boys, and water to play in.  These cute kids clung to Hank and Hayes as if they were dolls, and the boys just let them put them in a sand pit they dug for them and everything.... Ok, they didn't love the sand pit but they loved the big kids wanting to play with them.  Hank got soaking wet within 10 seconds of being down there, he would fall every five steps and keep on going! 

Day 2 to come!

Day 1 at The Beach

This July we decided to take a very last minute vacation with Derric's brother Lee and his family.  We thought this would be a great annual vacation to take for our sweet cousins Hank and Hayes to enjoy for years to come.  The first day on the beach was a blast.  They immediately met lots of littel friends who wanted to play with them.  We came down right after breakfast, took a lunch break and nap then tried to return as quickly as possible.  The boys loved the sand and waves!

This is a picture of the boys making sand molds with Lightning McQueen and Mater!

First Day of MDO FAll 2011

Hank's first day of Mother's Day Out was so exciting.  He was so happy to run and play with his friends again after a long summer of just him and Ms. Joann.   He loves his Abby, and Logan,those are  his little buddies along with all the other kids that come and play on Mondays!  I tried to take a few pictures of Hank before he went to school that day.  We also took a sweet treat to his two teachers and they loved them! 

On the first day of school Hank made a precious apple out of red tissue paper and a cute green worm.  The following week they were studying Jesus as a kid and they had "carpentry class" where he was able to sand, and smooth a little wooden puppy dog then paint it.  It was really cute.  I need to post pictures of his crafts soon.  Sorry I haven't posted in so long, my laptop had a cracked LCD screen but now we are back in business.
