Trip To The Museum

Today I took the kids to the Berkshire Museum. My kids love to go there, plus it's free for us, I bought the family pass back a few months ago. Lauren wasn't with us because she went to Maine with my mom. She left on Tuesday & will be back tomorrow. They were actually really well behaved today which was a plus for me! It was also nice today because now with Rylan being a little older & almost walking, he seemed to enjoy the visit a little more! Here they are posing with the dino, Laci's idea of course. She is too funny, loves getting her picture takin!
Getting ready to dig for dino bones!

Love watching my kids when they are learning & having fun! I am so grateful that I am able to stay home & spend time like this with them! Especially because time flies & before I know it they will be grown! So even when they are driving me crazy, I wouldn't trade them for anything!

Juicin It Up!

It was so muggy out we just kinda hung out inside today. I made pumpkin bread & corn muffins for breakfast. I don't know what got into me just felt like baking this morning. Later on after lunch we decided to get the juicer out & make some juice. Lulu & Braedon love helping me with it. First we made grape-kiwi juice it was so yummy!
Then after we were done drinking that I brought out the lemons to make lemonade. Lulu was happy cause it's one of her favorite drinks,( just like her mommy). There's nothing like homemade lemonade on a hot summer day!

I caught Rylan standing on his own a few days ago so of course I had to take a few pictures! We always clap when he does & he gets so excited! He seems really proud of himself. No steps yet, just working on his balance i guess.

Here he is clapping because we were. How cute!
Then I caught a couple days after playing with the toy vacuum and before my eyes he stands up with it & is trying to "vacuum". Got my camera in time to get another couple pics.

I brought the kids over my mom's today so they could play outside in her yard & for dinner. Braedon must have really been tuckered out from all his running around, because after I got Rylan to sleep tonite I came down the stairs & found Braedon konked out on the couch. I know one day he will hate me for this picture but I just had to! Sweet dreams buddy!
