Do you guys like these type of posts? Just some happenings in our little world? I’d like to get back to doing more of that. Documenting the fun we’re having by just living life. It’s nothing earth shattering but I promised I would post more photos this year. Instagram makes it so easy to snap, snap, snap away. All of these photos were taken on my iphone.
Landon really wanted beach buckets and shovels but we have no real beaches in Missouri. I bought them anyway and we went to a sand volleyball court at the park instead. The boys thought it was pretty cool.
We went to the zoo last week with my sister Kelli, nephew Harrison and niece Charlotte. Aside from it being in the nineties it was really fun. We saw the bird show, which let us see endangered parrots, owls and a vulture up close. The blue picture is actually of the polar bear exhibit. She is still fairly new to the Kansas City Zoo and is the main attraction! We like watching her do flips in the water.
Just some random happenings around the house. Brigham skipped his nap after the zoo. Um, not acceptable Brigs! Landon watched daddy change the oil. He was very interested. We recently signed up for ABCmouse.com after hearing the commercial a bazillion times. It is an educational computer program with games, songs, math, reading, etc. It’s fair to say that Landon is obsessed with it now. He woke up wanting to play it. I don’t mind it so much since it does teach him important things. It’s fun for me to watch him learn and help him along. He is really good at using the mouse and can quickly find letters on the keyboard. He’ll probably be typing faster than me by age 5!
Brothers sharing icy pops. All three boys got new tennis shoes last week. Can you say expensive? I went on a lunch date with sisters while my sister Jennifer was in town. The boys like to do anything with our sectional other than sit down. There they are climbing on the back of the couch. I don’t always let them. But on this day I just gave in and let them have some fun.
Naaman’s brother Nathan and his family are in town for a visit. They are currently in transition with the Navy and will be moving to Germany next week for three years! We went to Naaman’s hometown for a family get together and it was a lot of fun. We made homemade ice cream, the kids splashed in the kiddie pool, we fed the neighbor’s horses carrots. Levi is their six-year-old son and Landon just loves him. They usually get along really well. They rarely get to see each other but when they do I hear a lot of little boy giggles and I love it. We will miss them while they’re so far away but wish them luck on their next big adventure across the ocean!
And that’s what’s up lately. Have a wonderful Monday, everyone.
