making friends

it's fun to see kiddos making friends. they do it so easily even though they are honest and tell each other everything, fight and forgive. wish i was more like that.

jackson and timothy had TONS of fun playing together. i remember when they were so young and the 2 month difference looked so different - jackson in the jumpster and timothy on his tummy on a blanket. not any more.

although we had some scuffles timothy and jackson got along beautifully. annie loved watching charlotte and exploring a new play spot.

sarah's a great photographer and had her camera handy - as i think is the case often. here are some images of jackson and timothy's play...

jumping off of a couch onto the cusions...how cool is that!sarah organized an impromptu craft time complete with snacks and they made these hats.
we finished the day with a shaving cream bath - also a brillant idea of sarah's.
we all had fun!

bike + animals = no zoo

well, we made our way to the zoo recently and i had a brilliant plan to let jackson ride his tricycle around the zoo while annie was in the stroller. we got denied at the gate and had to turn around. jackson decided to ride around hermann park instead - which was so much fun.
here's the water park - jackson was upset his shoes got dirty. annie will be the total opposite - she'll get soakin' wet when she has her chance.this is jackson's new smile - when i ask them to smile for the camera we get jackson sticking out his tongue and annie smiling. you can't win them all.the squirrels at the park were tame. we fed them "puffs" out of our hand. jackson loved this part. annie was upset we were giving animals her snacks.
during our tour of the park jackson told me he had to go pee pee. well, we just had to do it...
jackson's is obsessed with anything motorized - so the entire time he wanted to go on the train. i was $1 short - thankfully we made a friend who gave us a $1. jackson then gave the lady a big hug for giving us the money. we actually needed more $ than that but i temporarily thought annie was under a year old - which is free. opps. i have selective memory loss - i get to select when i loose it.

gone fishing...

not really...just took a little hiatus from blogging...after illnesses and then more illnesses, new teeth, waking up in the middle of the night...multiple times, potty training, getting a new boss (jack's now my boss...well at least he'll like to hear that), bday parties, a march filled with lots of weddings and events to film or shoot, and trying to catch up on our back log of weddings i'm now updating our blog - from march 2nd until the present.
