Slack Happy

Okay, we know, we're slackers.  It's been a month since our last post!  We have been too busy playing with all our birthday toys, I guess.  PLUS it has been so nice out - we have been spending lots of time at the park and swinging in Ba and Da's losha lozzia loggia.

Let's see.  The day after our birthday party, we did the March of Dimes' March for Babies.  It was cold, but still fun.  Our cousins Braden and Calen were there, so of course we had fun.   Afterwards, we went to our friend Maeve's house for dinner.  Our friend Liana was there, too.  It was a blast!  Soon after, Mom and Dad started letting us feed ourselves yogurt.  Sweet.....but messy!

The next weekend was Mother's Day.  We let Mom take us to the Mother's Day 5K (apparently this is now a tradition).  The cool part was that Aunt Jane was in town and could come with us!  And GAC (Great Aunt Cheryl) and her sister Stephanie were there, too.  Fun times!  Of course, GAM bought us t-shirts and cheered us on the entire time. 
As you can see, this year was much warmer than last year:

Did you know how fun fire pits can be in the summer?  Mom and Dad let us play in theirs (okay, we started behind their backs), and wow!  We are artists (pronounced ar-teests) - the face-painting kind, I mean.  Mom and Dad have learned to clean out the pit when they are done with fires because, whoa nelly does this create a mess.  Afterwards we went straight to bath time.  You may have already been thinking this, but what do you suppose happens to fine ash in your face and hair when you pour water over it?  You guessed it.  Paste!  Mom and Dad don't have pictures of this, but you can imagine their sigh of relief once the whole ordeal was over.

Mom and Dad brought us out to the Legends for Grandpa's birthday.  It was Legendary!  We saw race cars and dinosaurs!  And our cousin Nick was there, which made us very happy.

What you don't see in the above picture is the very large, clear-as-day sign that says no climbing in the cars!  I know, we are rebels.  To be fair, we can't read so the parental units are to blame for our faux pas.

This is our cousin Nick showing us the dinosaur bones outside of the T-Rex restaurant.

Now that we are talking more, we are realizing how cool it is to ask for what we want.  We usually get it!  Especially when we say please.  We ask for walks all the time.  Last night we insisted Mom and Da take us on one we were hoping....they took us to the park!  We love this one area with rubber 'bouncy' mulch. 

Mom and Dad are so clueless.  Since we love the bouncy mulch so much, they thought we would love the bouncy house at the NICU reunion last weekend.  Seriously?!  We can't jump two inches off the ground so even walking in that monstrosity of a "House of Fun" was more than we cared to handle.  We were not impressed and instead bee-lined over to the oatmeal raisin cookies.  We saw our NICU friend Maddie and our nurse Nancy.  Good times!

GAB (Great Aunt Betsy) came in town for her birthday!  How fun.  She brought us cheese curds!  Does she know what we like or what?  Mmmmm, speaking of the curds, I think there are some left.  I'm going to go ask for some now ("cheese please").

Toodaloo Cockatoo,
