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!!

Another baby gymnastics graduation!

Few kids can say they've already graduated three times before they were even two and a half, but seeing that we are always striving to be over achievers, we CAN say that! Today we had our third (and final, at least for the foreseeable future) baby gymnastics graduation. Our previous two, last summer and the end of last year, were at one center, but that closed down in January so this graduation was from a different gym (same company, different branch). We had to drive farther to get to this one, but we had lots and lots of fun and it was a great way to use up our plentiful energy this winter! Here's some snippets of what we learned and what we can do:

Aidan learned how to do a forward roll all by himself this semester! He loves to do them on the wedge thing because he can go really fast. He hardly even uses his arms to steady himself!

P learned lots of things, but all he felt like showing off was how to get up on all fours on the bar. He has been known to walk up and down the bar like this (called a "bear walk") but today he wasn't in the mood to show you! :)

The boys each got called up to receive a medal and hear about all the wonderful things their teacher has noticed about them!
(The background noise is REALLY loud, so be cautious as you watch this video!)

A quick picture of the boyz on their favorite piece of equipment: the bars! Aidan can get his feet all the way up on the bars and balance there - what a strong boy! P can almost get his feet up there too, but again, was not in a showy mood today! :)

Our class and teacher. It was a fun semester!

Fun Friday - new indoor park edition!

We try to have "Fun Fridays" around here, meaning that every Friday we head out for something. We usually alternate between something close and something not as close. Today was a close kind of Friday, and since it was raining we decided to check out a new indoor park! Here's some pictures from our outing:

 Aidan riding the "bear car"
 Cruising together on the 4 wheeler
 P on the "bear car"
Wistfully watching the other kids swimming at the attached pool

What's that, you ask? Where was the indoor park? Oh, that was lame. We were done with it the minute we saw those grocery store vehicles you can put quarters it. (Funny thing, though. Brittany said we couldn't put quarters into these ones or we'd break them. I wonder why?) Now all we want to do is go back and go swimming! Maybe we already know where we want to go next Friday...!

Dance like no one is watching...

...and hope that when you do your nanny isn't standing near by with a camera! :)
