Movies Outside

As it gets hotter we start to spend a lot more time outside.
It is the favorite place to be right now. From the time they wake the time Daddy comes home...the boys want to just play, play, play outside.

We have even started watching movies outside instead of in the T.V. room.
They pull their little chairs over to the BBQ Island and sit and enjoy a show the shade.
Tysen always has to have the Blue chair.

We love spring/summer time
(it's getting so hot I can't tell which on it is right now)

Boys 101

To Be a Boy You Need:

A Sword

Some Armor

Some Dirt

Bad Guys (who are out to get you)

Hiding Places


A Very Active Imagination

Tysen got a lesson on being a boy this week while his cousin Gavin was over to play.
Gavin taught Tysen all about the art of sword fighting and "bad guy" (or, as Tysen puts it, bad boys).

They had to have all the Armor on for protection.
This was what they gave Jayden for protection :-)

Gavin made good use of a helmet, a shield and a baseball bat (or sword).

...And Tysen had a sword and some armor that covered his chest (who cares if it is upside down)

Of course, the outfit would not have worked without PJ's
(even though it was probably 1:00 in the afternoon)

These two knights saved me from a lot of bad guys...and believe me, there were a lot.
But, I wasn't worried one bit...I had three strong , brave, heroes protecting me!

I am one lucky Damsel.

I mean just look how determined they are to protect!

If I do not put him down for his morning nap...he will pass out by himself in random places.
His favorite spot is his highchair... he does that a lot
The other day he was playing in my room in front of my bed while I did laundry. After a while I didn't hear him anymore but I could hear some little snorting sounds...he was out!

He is a snorty sleeper! We had the dog sleeping in our room one night and Jayden in our bed (which is a rare occasion...our children actually prefer their own beds) and Dan leaned over to me and said...I can't tell which one is snorting more the Dog or Jayden!

Anyways, this time he passed out with two binkies ( I can not bring myself to wean him yet..I need the binkies to stick around a little longer )

 ...And his shoes on
He brings me his shoes now. I think he thinks it means something exciting is going to happen if we put his shoes on.

Sleepy babies are one of the things I will miss when they are all grown...(sigh)
