a few weeks ago, aunt lala was dying to see the boys so she flew in for a night. the boys were so happy to see her when they woke up. i got to go get groceries sans kids and they had a blast playing. she took us to chick-fil-a for lunch where the boys scored these awesome hats. we then headed to target so they could get a surprise. she bought them there first pair of socker boppers. oh boy! i'm so thankful for the flight benefits they have and also for the aunt she is to my boys :)
this summers main learning goal is for canon to be able to write all the uppercase and lowercase letters. we've been working our way through them. after we've sat at the table writing for a bit, we play a game or do a craft associated with that letter. this was our first day and we went on a hunt around the playroom for toys that started with an "a" sound. they did really well with little help!
we got to go celebrate logan's birthday with some of our most favorite people. it was such a fun night! and the next week, he and aanna's sweet valentine was born.
canon loves taking pictures on my phone. thats's the feature i don't like on my iphone. i have it password protected so they can't get on it without my knowing, but that darn camera on the lock screen drives me crazy! it takes forever to delete HUNDREDS of his pictures of the floor or ceiling!
enjoying guy time over sno-cones!
i LOVE hydrangeas! my mom has a flower bed full so i cut some for myself. they just look like summer to me! i also love how home-y they make my house feel.
my boys love them some hopie! these cuties are only 3 days apart.
probably my favorite picture ever of these two. they are best buddies!
i love watching this guy sleep. for about a month now, i've been getting him out of his crib asleep when i head to bed. i cuddle with him and pray for him and watch him sleep and usually fall asleep myself. then lane puts him back in his crib when he comes to bed. one of my favorite things right now!
the boys got a fun mail surprise one day! while we were visiting lane's grandparents back in may, his grammie had pulled out some of her kids' favorite books out so she could read them to the boys. "caps for sale" became their favorite and just happened to be pops (lane's dad) favorite book, too! not long after she mailed the boys a copy of their very own!
i love pulling out toys we've had forever, but the boys have forgotten about. i got this tent/tunnel out one morning and they played with it ALL day!
this little guy's newest trick!
another milestone: sitting up in the basket. this was on a whim and i didn't have our seat cover with me!
and finally, knox's new playmat came in! i originally wanted a rug for knox's room, but after seeing how much a big one was, i decided a playmat was perfect. when i came across this one from skiphop, i fell in love! i've been so anxious for it to come in. it's already softened a few falls backwards :)
