Theo and Auggie, flattering in flannel even if faces are funny :)
One of our highlights this month was swapping my girls with my sister's boys. We had a blast together eating a lot...
Watching boy shows....
building amazing lego creations...
swimming some laps...
and to top it all off...here is the before picture...
and AFTER of haircuts- such a handsome crew. Much thanks to Auntie Beth!
Gretta took advantage of some browning bananas and baked up some yummy banana bread.
The four older kids have been taking swimming lessons at the same time, which leaves Theo and I, snacks, books, and trucks in hand, cheering them on from the bleachers. Afterwards, we sometimes jump in the pool too. I think this guy is ready!
Target Starbucks with the Leatherberries- we love Target runs!!
Our first Daddy-Daughter Dance at Jacob's Well.
We had so much fun at cousin Liza's gymnastic birthday party- boys will still be boys :)
We found Mr Sanders tree at Bookworm Gardens in Sheboygan. Theo was on day 2 of potty training and didn't miss a beat.
We brought a friend and met lots of friends to play in the sun, exploring the Gardens.
Make a funny face if you had a great time!
Gretta is having an art lesson with Leila, initiated on her own. :)
Gretta performed in Into the Woods this year with His Majesty's Theater and Miss Molly.
Can you find Gretta? She blossomed as a tree!
Cousin hugs afterwards. We love you too, Jax and Grey!
I couldn't pass this picture up. Someone thought my bedroom dresser would make for a perfect scabbard! Lord, help me to enjoy these sweet years as they will go by fast!
We had some visitors for a delicious supper of Sloppy Joe's, fruit, and baked veggies.
Potty training started Monday, May 15th. We had quite a few accidents the first day,
but this guy was willing and ready.
By day two (our trip to Bookworm Gardens) he had this thing. He told me when he had to go, and held it until we got to the restrooms.
"Hey mom?" "Huh?" "You said the nerd word!!!" I thought the nerd word was "what". =)
Cousins and Auntie eating together in style.
A trip to the bargain cave at Cabellas, looking for last minute Boundary Waters supplies.
We met my college room mate Jodi at Lindsey's house in Oshkosh- it has been years, but so great to catch up and meet each other's kids!
Our first trip to Bay Beach this season. Rides are a quarter, and orange seemed to be the ride choice color of the day for these two!
A first with cotton candy- they may be a bit shocked I said yes!
These two were not so excited about the texture. That is OK with me!
Sandra and Leia brought over fresh, warm pastries and churros- yummy!!
We finally planted these beautiful Knock Out rose bushes- thank you Dad!
Can't we go with you too?
The guys left Sunday for the Boundary Waters and we miss them like crazy!
They are planning to be home Saturday night and we can't wait!
In the mean time, we had supper at GG and Gampys and enjoyed Gampys grilled pineapple with cinnamon- our new favorite =)
