More fun in photos.

More fun in photos for you to enjoy!

Home made Peach-mango popsicles. Best hot spring day treat!

The boys love the Tinkerbell movies, after taking these photos I asked what they were doing and they explained very extensively about the pixie dust tree and the magical pixie dust.... It was adorable watching them collect pixie dust.

Sleeping baby.

Sleeping toddler. We are breaking him of his pacifier (always do this on their 2nd birthday) We allow him to hold it but he isnt allowed to put it in his mouth. On this particular day, this is where he chose to put it for nap time. Silly boy.

It is Washington, and yes we still have rainy days. They don't stop these boys from enjoying the outdoors.

Ryker and I watching them from under the eaves, staying dry. :)

Syler is TWO!!!

Syler turned two on the 16th! happy 2nd birthday to my sweet but serious boy!
2 years ago Syler made his way into our world so fast daddy almost had to catch and he hasn't slowed down.  He brings love, laughter and joy to our days. 

We had a pretty small party for him over the weekend.
Syler LOVES airplanes, so it was only appropriate to make that the focus for his party. 

The boys all helped paint the Popsicle sticks and clothes pins for the take home airplanes for all the guests.

Finished planes doubled as decorations:

I also made these cute banners for decoration. So much fun


 We made foam airplanes during the party.  It was a pretty big hit.

There was lots of cousin play going on!

The cupcakes:
Made from scratch, fudgy chocolate with white chocolate frosting. 

Syler was a little shy about everyone singing to him:

He didnt even want to blow out his candles, so his brothers helped.

The best picture I got of the birthday shirt I made him

It was a fun day and he had a great time! Thanks to all who made it!

Fun times around here

We are always having great fun around here, sometimes I forget to keep up with sharing. So here is an array of pictures for you to enjoy.

A Squirrel feeding on our squirrel feeder. The feeder is a bungee so they bounce while they eat, its pretty hilarious! I will try to get a video one of these days.

Syler "brushing" Rykers teeth. No we dont usually brush teeth in the middle of the day at the back door. This is actually a teething toy Ryker likes to chew on but Syler thinks its for brushing. 

 My little chefs, making pancakes.

Syler checking on Ryker while pushing him around the yard. Such a great big brother!

Garden update: Things are growing!!!
We have so far, Strawberries, Kale, Lettuce, sugar snap peas, carrots, radish, broccoli and tomato's 

Sprinkler play on a hot day. 

Ryker and cousin Evan.... They are best buds and play so well together. (Evan is 2.5 months older)

Big boys in small pool....

Baby on my back.

This is life!

Thursday naps

Just had to share this because I think it is adorable. On Thursday when we have Savannah, nap time for Syler ends up happening on the couch. It's where I lay Savannah down and he just has to be near her all the time.

Two sleeping toddlers.... 
and yes Syler is wearing his back pack..

Great Grandpa's 90th Birthday Celebration

The boys and I headed down to Eagle Point to celebrate Grandpa Marlia's 90th birthday. Paul had an all hands drill with the Navy so he had to stay home. We missed him but had a pretty grand time with the extended family. We stayed at Aunt Theresa and Uncle Daves. Its always so wonderful there, they make us feel right at home! We arrived Friday afternoon, letting the boys settle in before all the family excitement took place.

Tucker layed next to Ryker as soon as I got up to step away for a minute. I think Amelia has been giving him some baby guarding skills.

Happy baby

Aunt Theresa brought them a box to throw their balls in, entertained them for a while!

Ryker catching bubbles

Saturday we headed over to the ranch for the birthday party.

The kids loved the organ

Zander loved the rocks!

We ate Great Grandmas cinnamon rolls!

and hung out with family!

I always slack on taking pictures when I am visiting with family. We had a great time though!!
We headed home Sunday evening, exhausted after a long weekend without daddy.
