"Feeding" the ducks

This week we are getting to play with our Britty and our new friend, Andrea. So far we are loving having two people to play with and have some individualized attention! Today we decided to head out and feed some ducks. It was not easy to find ducks to feed, but we finally found some geese that looked hungry and there was no sign saying not to feed to water foul, so it was game on!

...Or so we thought. turns out, ducks and geese are kind of afraid of two running, screaming toddlers. As soon as we made our way onto the deck area to feed them they headed further out in the water. Thankfully we are pretty easy to please, so we just spent some time throwing the bread into the water and had a great time! Maybe next time they will know that we come in peace and bring food and stick around to eat it!

All our bread floating down the river. Hopefully some sort of creature got to enjoy them before they dissolved!

First Day of School!!

It's official - we're big boyz! Today was our first day of school (meaning, a daycare/preschool combination) and we had so much fun! Our classroom has a mouse in it named Hammy and we got to play with her and even help change her water bottle. We are at the older end of our class so we got to be good helpers with all the other kids. When Britty and our new friend, Andrea, came to pick us up our teacher told them that she wished she had 10 kids just like us because we were so great!

Getting ready to hop in the car and "hit the road!"

Outside our school - could we be any cuter with our little backpacks and lunch boxes?!

Things are really changing around here. We can't wait for Thursday so we can go back and play at school again!

Stuck at School

We had our summer school class today, and just before it was time to go it started to rain like crazy! We hung out for a while in our classroom, but when we could tell that the rain wasn't letting up any time soon we decided to head on over to the school cafeteria and eat lunch there! Our school has a cool thing where they offer free lunch to all kids every day of the week. We really enjoyed being big boys in the lunch room today and hope we can stay for it again another week!

Big boy P!
 Big boy Aidan!

We sure are growing up fast!

For Fun Friday today, we went to a new museum and got to see some dinosaurs! We've loved reading about dinosaurs in lots of the books we have, so we were really excited to see some big dinosaurs today.

Checkin out the Triceratops

The only thing missing was a moon rock, like Bert likes to go see! ;) It was a fun day at the museum!

Biker Boyz

This summer, we are all about bikes! We've only had them a few weeks but we have totally figured out pedaling and can cruise around pretty fast on our bikes. We even look pretty stylish (and old!) in our spiffy helmets!

Biker P!

Biker Aidy!

The McBiker Boyz!

Here's a video of us in action. A word of caution, turn your volume WAY down, if not off. We don't say anything cute, but we do like to yell when we're outside!

If this doesn't show you the individual personalities of our Aidy and Patrick, I don't know what does!

Operation Birth Control?

Mom and Dad are out of town again, so we decided to put Operation Birth Control in full force again - we were getting up in the middle of the night, not taking good naps and being extra picky eaters. Perfect, right:?! But boy did we get the surprise of our lives when we had to go with Britty to the doctor yesterday morning. Did you know she's growing a baby in her tummy? Us either! She says the baby is coming "after Halloween" (November). I guess we really missed the mark! We had lots of talks with her this week and she said she is willing to pack up and move us to Canada with her and Dan before Mom and Dad get home or maybe draw up some adoption papers so she doesn't have to leave us. We're not so sure how Mom and Dad (or us!) will feel about that... 

Since we now have shortened time left together, we had an extra fun day today! We went to the mall and saw the fishies and made a new stuffed animal friend!

P loved touching the star fish in the touch pool
 More P :)
 Aidan tried, but was not a fan!
Then we went to build a new friend! Aidan picked a Monkey and Patrick picked a Dog. We grabbed a heart for each of them and had to rub it really hard to get it started!
 Here's P stepping on the pedal to fill up his puppy
 Poor Puppy needed surgery to fix his arm. Thankfully, he's expected to make a full recovery

 We were so good that we got to get a little baseball glove, bat and ball for them! We had so much fun today!!
