A few weeks ago Brigitte and I took the kids down to the Zoo. It was an adventure with 4 kids in tow, but they all enjoyed it. All Boston wanted was to ride on the train and get cotton candy. Lincoln and Brooklyn enjoyed the scenic route in the double stroller.

Happy Birthday Lincoln

Our little man is now one years old. Time has flown by and the days of getting up every two hours to feed have quickly turned into a full nights sleep and tons of memories. I think it is amazing how quickly a baby grows, this past year has been filled with milestones and achievements for Lincoln. While I do remember the days of being a newly married couple, I would never change the life that we have made for ourselves. Children are a blessing and forever change your life, as our children grow and learn new things Ben and I also grow and learn.

Happy Birthday Lincoln, we love you and are so happy you are a part of our family.

Love Mom, Dad, and big sister

Get me out!

I am sad to say that the times of putting Lincoln in his bouncer are now over. All he wants to do is crawl around in get into things. Besides if I do put him in the bouncer this (pictures) happens. I guess this is why it says "never leave child unattended".

Bath Time

This has to be my favorite time of day! Boston and Lincoln are such water babies I have a hard time pulling them out of the tub. I also have to say that Boston really enjoys taking a bath with Lincoln only for the fact that she gets to hold him and "be in charge." Oh and just a side note, isn't a baby bum too cute. The only time when it is okay to have dimples on the lower cheeks:)

Back Seat Driver

Boston loves to take Lincoln for rides on her 4-wheeler. I think this is one of Lincoln's favorite things to do outside. If Boston gets on the 4-wheeler without him he will crawl all over the yard trying to chase after her.

Don't BEE Scared

A few Saturday's ago we walked to the park to register Boston for AYSO soccer and as we were walking by we noticed a beehive chained to a tree. Not so unusual I know, but the thing that made me really look twice was the fact the kids were playing in the swarm and not getting stung. So naturally Boston wanted in on the action. She got right up to the hive and let the bees land on her, in fact she was even going to open the lid to look inside the box.
I have to tell you I was really nervous at first, but after a seconds of them flying by buzzing your face you kind of get used to it. It was one of the best experiences that Boston and I could of had. After all, it isn't everyday that you get to hold bees and play in their swarm for fun.

Sleep Over

While Ben was in Moab having his fun Boston and I had a sleep over in the front room. She was in charge of making the bed (her choice of pillows to sleep on) and then we made chocolate covered strawberries. Surprisingly she made it all the way to 11:30 pm and then crashed. It was fun to spend the night with just the two of us.
