The people in this house have been stir crazy. All of us. So when we saw the warm temperature forecast for this weekend we were a little excited.
Friday afternoon we decided to head outside to have snack and hang out til Daddy got home.
These little dudes are getting pretty happy to stick right next to each other lately. Lots of bro hugs and kisses. And smiles from Mama.
Jude seems to be a pretty chill dude. He seems to like to sit back and take in the situation before he makes a move. It's going to be fun watching their little personalities grow as they get older. He was content to hang out on the quilt for a while...then he went exploring the grass and sticks big bro was bringing him as plunder.
After a while we noticed Big Bro was gone for a while. Fear not, I knew he was up with the men-folk in the barns. Then I look up and see this. Pretty sure this dude has "Woy" (Roy) wrapped around his little fingers just like he was his grandpa. He loves some Roy and "Opie!"
As we were getting our stuff together to trek down to a local park/river area, Uncle Dubs rode up on his bike. This, in itself, was surprising to me because they live like 15 minutes away IN A CAR. He was on his bike. Yeah. We're so thankful that Dubs is feeling well enough to do what he loves on his bicycle.
After all of us, including Dubs, got loaded up off we went. According to Liam we "payed, slide, payed mud, payed waler." In adult English: We checked out the playground, then we tromped through the woods for the river. I can see spending lots of time at this place in our future. Especially when it gets really hot!
Then we came home and the big boys went "camping." The Hubs has been so excited to take Liam camping, and this Christmas he got his first sleeping bag. After The Hubs and I went camping last weekend Liam took his sleeping bag out and said "I go canting. My canting bag." And he's had his sleeping bag out since. So The Hubs decided to see how it went tonight in the field out back. They've been out there for 3 hours now. We'll see how long it lasts!
