This morning, we went and played at the park near us to get out and enjoy one of the very few sunny days we've had recently. We were getting ready to leave when we saw a big backhoe being delivered to the empty lot right around the corner, so we took a little detour on the way home and saw the backhoe. It was just being delivered, but the man who delivered it said that if we came back while it was working we could probably get to take a ride in it, or at least sit in it! As Aidan said, "I excited!" We hurried home and ate a really good lunch. Good thing Brittany made one of our favorites, or I don't think we could have stopped talking about the backhoe long enough to put food in our mouths!
We finally finished and headed back over to the lot. As soon as we got there, a dump truck came that delivered a bunch of rock, so we got to watch it being poured out. That alone was really cool for two little guys who love trucks! But then the moment came - we got to ride in the backhoe with our new friend Mr. Cody! Well, okay, maybe not WE, but Aidan did get to go up in the truck and move the bucket! (Patrick clammed right up and did not want to go with our new friend up into the truck.) It was a little like the Santa phenomenon: we were really stoked about doing it until we got up to get on the truck/Santa's lap and we kind of freaked out. We did get some pictures, though, so we can remember our fun time checking out the trucks. We are going to be talking about this for a long time to come!!
Today we had our last day of school. We go to school one day a week for two hours. The first hour we play with Brittany, make projects about the day's theme, and have circle time where we sing songs and learn more about the day's theme. The second hour, Brittany goes away with the other moms and they talk about things like potty training, discipline and sleeping while we get more play time with our teachers and friends. When we first started school in September, we cried the whole time Brittany would leave and hated being away from our comfort zone. We would hold our little blankies and cry in the corner until she came back. Aidan, especially, was really really shy and didn't talk at all. Now, we LOVE school and do so well when Brittany leaves! We talk to our teachers and love playing with our friends. We have grown up so much over the year and we are pretty darn proud of ourselves for it! School has been a great learning time and we are sad to see it end. We hope we are in the same class with all of our friends next year!
Here's a picture from our first day in September:
and here we are on the last day, today!

We had a great year and we'll miss it so much! Good thing Brittany's got some play dates planned for us and our friends! :)
Love, Aidan and Patrick

Basketball is a thing of the past around here. Our new favorite thing is baseball!! We have to tees that we set up in the backyard on nice days and we hit away. We are picking it up pretty fast and love when the sun is out so we can play!
I'm Patrick and I'm growing so fast! I love to talk, but sometimes have a hard time getting words in with Aidan around. I love to read books and play with blocks and other things I can take apart and put back together. I am a super great helper and love to help unload the dishwasher and do laundry. I'm a really easy going kid and love to be along for the ride where every we're going. I can't wait for summer to spend all my waking time playing at the park!
All about Aidan
I'm Aidan and I am loving being two! I talk all day long and love to tell you stories about everything. I am really into sports, especially basketball and baseball and I'm pretty good at them if I do say so myself! I still love babies and reading books, and have recently been introduced to the wonders of (limited) TV! The "Puppy Show" (Word World) is my favorite! I'm usually a pretty easy going kid and can't wait to be on the run all summer!
