Can We Go Somewhere Mom

Both of my boys are asleep at 4:00 in the afternoon and I really need to wake them up, but it is soooo quiet and peaceful and WONDERFUL! So, instead of taking a much-needed nap myself, I am going to post some pictures for all of your enjoyment!

Here are a few pictures of the exciting life Jackson leads (along with Brigham and me)! He tells me every day that "our house is bored," and asks me, "Can we go somewhere?" To which I replay, "Where do you want to go?" and he replies, "Somewhere." So, here are the "somewheres" we have gone in the past few weeks (with my sprained ankle and all).

Our good friends took us up to their parent's swimming pool for the afternoon and here is Jack in the little kid area. He is getting way too brave. He tells Dave not to catch him and gets mad if he tries too. The little daredevil still won't brave nursery though!

Here's a picture of Jack and the two neighbor boys his age. Someday they will all get along!

Here's cute Brigham at Lagoon-A-Beach. He's a funny little guy.

Here is the classic picture of the Fountains at the Gateway that everyone goes too. It's fun to see the kids get braver as they get older. Jack still won't go in the middle without me.

Here is Jack and his friend Bridger playing in the bark under the steps at the park because it is soooo hot outside.

This is the lovely face I get to see when I go in to get Brigham in the morning. He is such a happy baby, and I love him. I love him for many reasons, but one of the biggest is that he can't talk back yet and he doesn't know what tantrums are. We will survive the terrible twos right?!

Here is Jack in our back yard. This is our sweet homemade water slide. The pool was ten bucks off of and the pool was twelve dollars from Wal-mart. Cheap, yet practical! And it did entertain him for a whole hour.

I'm glad to see you finally got off of Mom's couch. ha, ha, just kidding. That's funny that Jack always wants to go "somewhere." Now every time I drive down our street towards our house, Bryker starts whining, "no home, no home." Come on, is it really that boring?! Brigham has the best smiles! We can't wait to see you guys next week. :)

Don't you love being a mom? I love it... Your kids are so cute. Looks like a fun summer :)

Nick and Kirsten said...

i want to come swimming at your pool!

Alicia said...

Yes, you are a seriously brave mom to do all that with a sprained (2nd or 3rd degree) ankle! Check you out. Your kids look so cute! Maybe someday I'll get to meet them. =) I think Brigham looks more like you and Jackson is a mix of you and David. I could be wrong, though, since I've never actually seen them.

Anyway, have fun with the rest of your summer and keeping up with the terrible-twos! That's a domain I'm a little nervous to enter... =)
