when he was on first base, he'd often chat with the other team, depending on if they were "interesting" or not. i don't quite know how he determined that.
getting his trophy with his proud daddy!
gracie celebrated her 4th birthday with lots of family & friends. she has on her "i;m crabby like my daddy shirt" from her auntie, her new favorite shirt!
her birthday wish was "for everyone to be happy!"
all the kiddos had a blast playing on the water slide! cowabunga, dude!!
by the end of the party, i think she was a bit tired out.
the next day, while daddio was "sleeping," we gave him a beautiful pedicure.
& i celebrated 33rd birthday with my very favorite kiddos & hubby. we went & ate at charlie's mongolian barbeque for dinner. ben asked why we took him there, because it was so good & made him too full!!
some of the other random fun memories of the past few weeks: gracie eating her tomatoes (favorite food) with ketchup - "totally good", as she would say. "totally" has become her totally favorite word in the world i think.
ben learning to swim & jumping in the pool. big time!! of course there are lots of rules we have & they have both been very good abiding by them.
every time he jumps off, or does a trick, he yells "did you get that mom?'' he is always making some hand gesture too.. what a clown.
ben has also learned to snap, whistle & has a loose tooth. that boy is growing up faster than i could ever imagine. kindergarten is right around the corner. yikers!
i wish i would write down all the things they say on a daily basis that make my cheeks hurt from laughing each day, but i'm not that good. they keep growing & growing into their own individual selves & this momma couldn't be prouder! i love you my sweet kiddos!!
