A few b-day pictures

The proud parents of a one year old and four year old. Here we are with outfits we got Luke. Precious. Precious. Precios.

He loved his cake!

This makes me happy!

How Can You Not Love This Child?

About-to-be-one Luke has been hard at work eating Puffcorn Deltites and playing around the house. Like this Reds outift? It belonged to Nick Coe back in the day. Had to share these sweet grins.

Here you can see one of Adam's latest PlayDoh creations. We have a bird cookie cutter and then he made the nest and the egg. This really reminds me of the little bird in Are You My Mother? It's one of our favorite books. Anyway, Adam was so very proud of this and so we took the picture. This is how Adam looked after he made the bird and nest. Please note that he is wearing underwear and I'm not letting him roam the house naked. However, he is still in said underwear around 11 in the morning. We are in quite a schedule that must change soon. The boys have been up late and sleeping in late. I intend to start moving our bedtime back little by little.

Well, it's hard to get all three of these fellas to look at the camera and look "good" at any one time. This is the best shot of about 10 that I took.
Priceless. I absolutely love this expression on Luke's face.

Luke is crawling faste ran faster. I am exhausted at the end of the day watching him and doing what seems like slave labor around here. How can one girl meet everyone's needs? I am working on this.
Adam is excited about a trip to TK's tonight. It's a gym with trampolines, foam pits, etc. This is part of the summer reading program.
I think I am taking stuff to Camargo today. I want/need to be there everyday but I can't do that with kids. It will get done I know but I want it done right now. Wishful thinking. I am meeting with Dawn, my teaching partner, tomorrow.
Bucky attempted to play golf with Aaron Pelsue yesterday. I think they got in 8 holes before the rain sent them packing. Aaron visited a bit while Bucky changed clothes.
Better go. Luke is throwing pancake bits. Guess he'd like something else for breakfast.

I have a job. 5th grade at Camargo Elementary!
Praise the Lord!

Summertime and the Livin' is Easy

I took these pictures yesterday when we were at the pool for FIVE hours. It was so hot and we were in the water pretty much the whole time. Adam is getting really good at swimming underwater. He loves his goggles for sure. Luke can maneuver the entire baby pool in this float. This has been the best $3 I spent this summer. He's so cute in it!
In other news, Adam and Bucky went to the Legends game on Monday night. Adam got a foul ball! A man a few rows up caught it and gave it to him. In the past, Adam has been afraid of Big L but that night he gave Big L high five and let him sign the ball. He's growing up!
We played ball last night in the backyard. All three of us hit home runs while Luke was all over the place. He was the dirtiest he'd ever been and the rest of us were sweating like crazy even though it was after 8. In fact, Luke's bath water was brown. Let me tell you that it's hard to get dirt out of those rolls on his knees. He did get a few bug bites on his face so I'll have to spray him/lotion him next time.
Don't know what we'll get into today. I need a grocery trip and Adam needs to turn in his reading log for the library reading program. Bucky leaves us (again) tomorrow to go to King's Island. Not sure what we'll do.
Here comes Luke. Better go.

Luke's Summer Fun

Luke went CRAZY over the fish at the Chinese restaurant in Paris. Over the course of this experience, his feet were in, his hands were in, and his pants came unbuttoned. Poppy said his little heart was beating like crazy! And to think I thought he was going to sleep through the meal!
Luke's 1st Fourth of July! Please note red, white and blue plaid shorts--the same ones that Adam wore!

Luke liked the four wheeler at first and then he changed his mind. He shed a few tears. Maybe next time....

Adam's Summer Fun

He's just mastered his goggles. In fact, he wore them INTO church last Sunday morning. Bucky thought Chris Sabo had arrived. Hilarious.

"I'm a farmer just like Poppy." He's growing "corn on the cob."

We had a great Thursday! We went to Nana and Poppy's first. Adam got to fish and check on his "corn on the cob" that he planted. Both boys rode the four wheeler although Luke wasn't quite sure about his ride and cried some. I had a lovely time chatting with Nana. It was strange to have adult conversation during the day!

We had a yummy supper at Mom and Dad's with ham, potatoes, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and even rhubarb. What a spread! Luke hit his head on their table and got quite a bump but was fine soon after it happened.

We headed to Salem Pike for the next fun. Carter and Adam played in the sand and did other things. I was so excited to see Max. He's sweet! Larry entertained us with the cows and it was good to see Lynn too. Being in the Tuttle house took me back to good times growing up.

Quote of the Day
Me: Larry Tuttle, you look just the same!
Larry: Why mess with perfection!

Bucky is home today. He will be tired I am sure but I think they had a great week.
