Following in Mommy's Footsteps

Poor Micah James!
He is following in my footsteps with his goose eggs.
I don't know what number we are least 3 or 4
and I am pretty sure I had 6 or 7 growing up.
I hope he doesn't get that many!

But the other night they were playing, and bam! He hits his head on the wall.
He starts crying hard, and Wes tells him to stop crying.
But when I saw this on his head...

I told Wes it was okay for him to cry!
Wes didn't agree...but poor little thing, it hurt!

He has survived yet another goose egg,
praying he doesn't get any more! Glad he was okay!
Be careful Micah!!!

My boys are HUGE fans of CARS the movie. We have watched it almost everyday getting ready for CARS 2. They have asked for weeks if today is the day we get to go to the movies.

So I thought we would do something fun the night before we see the movie.
And it was such a fun project for the boys to help me make.

We made McQueen cars!!!

I drew the circles and the boys cut them out,

and they colored their own 95 for the sides.

They were perfect seats to watch the first CARS before we see the new one tomorrow!

Of course we needed to have have popcorn for the movie!

It is finally here!!! The big day CARS 2!!!
We were there on the second day it started and the first ones in the theatre.
BeBop and PopPop were just as excited as the boys!

We are ready with our McQueen hats and shirts!

It was a great movie! The boys LOVED it!!!

Such a fun day with the boys!!!

The boys have been taking swim lesson at the YMCA. Sam has loved it since the first day. He has gained confidence in his swimming and doing a great job. He still needs a little more practice, but he is determined and can swim across the pool. It was wonderful watching his face when he was able to do something that scared him!
It took Micah a little longer to get used to swim lessons. He cried the whole time the first day. The second day he still cried, but did everything his teacher asked him to do. And on the 3rd day, he decided he could do it and was a totally different kid! I was beaming with pride! He is a little fish! If he knew how to take breaths, he would be swimming across the pool. He can jump in by himself and then swim back to the wall on his own. He pulls those little arms all the way out of the water and keeps his body on top of the water. I was so proud of him!!!

Wes was able to come a couple of times, but he missed the last few days of swim.
So we decided to go to our neighborhood pool and show daddy their swimming skills.

Micah jumping in to Daddy. Unless he is diving,
Micah starts moving his arms before he even hits the water.

Swimming back to the steps on his own.

Our little fish

Sam is doing such a great job! By the end of the summer he will be swimming all over the place!

I am so proud of my boys!!!

Celebrating an Amazing Father to my boys!!!

Happy Father's Day Daddy!!!

I am so incredibly blessed to have such an amazing father for my boys! Wes loves being with his boys. He wants to be involved in everything. Watching him wrestle, pillow fight, and tickle the boys is such fun watching them be boys. But watching him read to the them at night, teaching them to pray, showing them how to respect me and love me...makes me cry just thinking about it. I am so thankful that the boys have Wes to look up to and I hope they grow up to be just like him. He is their hero. He is a wonderful daddy and I am so thankful!!!

Wes had to work on Father's Day, so we decided to celebrate on Tuesday since he had the whole day off. I am so glad we did, because we had the whole day together!

Wes LOVES bacon! So I made Maple Bacon Cupcakes for breakfast.
I did not like them at all, but Wes liked them, so I guess it turned out okay.
At least they were cute, right? haha!

The boys made cards for Wes,

and of course he loved them!

Wes and his boys!

We started the day with a picnic at Discovery Green.

Wes didn't know I was taking this picture,
just shows how much he loves his boys!

Then we headed to the science museum and went to the butterfly part.

This is a real life insect...don't remember the name,
but doesn't it look like a leaf or something?

On the way home we stopped at Gander Mountain and then ate at Chuy's!
Forgot to bring my camera in...but it was very yummy!
Once we got home we had Root beer floats.

I think we wore him out!

It was a great day with Daddy!
I love you, Wes!!!
Thank you for all you do for our boys!
