Camp Out

I had a Ladies event at church on Thursday evening and came home to these two camping out in the backyard.  It was Aidan's first little campout.  Cliff told me they made a fire and laid out on the trampoline looking at starts.  Aidan then told Daddy it was time to go to bed.  Too cute.  My only critique was that he didn't take any pictures for me!!


Grandpa Mullen's Visity

Grandpa Mullen came for a visit last weekend.  We had such a fun time.  It was only for two days but we made the most of it.  Here are some pics I grabbed mainly on a quick walk we took at our neighborhood trail.

Slowing Down

Preschool has been such a blessing for our family.  The kids are loving getting out and playing with their friends and I am loving the little break and one on one time with Noah.  It has also made for some great dinner time conversation.  Just the other day Aidan was telling us the amazing story he has been reading at preschool about a little girl named Lucy and her brothers and sisters who went through a wardrobe to meet Mr.Tumnus.  Cliff and I were thrilled.  I have been doing a lot of random pictures with my phone so most of the blogs coming up will be from those.

Ryla pretending to be Sylvia Plath.  Just kidding.

Dance Party in Aidan's room.

First Thursday all to himself at the park.  No one to tell him "We have to stay over here Noah."  He was Freeeeeee!

Cuddle time.  She misses Noah when she is gone!

We also started Mom to Mom on Wednesdays.  I'm teaching the older 4's class which is Aidans.  

This pic was taken right after he got out of the bath.  Five minutes prior he was not in a diaper yet and decided to take a nice little poo in the living room.  It was pretty funny.

Story time with Daddy before bed.

My parents came for a quick visit a couple of weekends ago.  The pictures are enough to say that they kids were overjoyed seeing their Nana and Papa.

Fishing with Papa.

Please Ryla....Show us some personality.

They brought with them my play kitchen my Dad built 27 years ago.  My mom and I decked it out with some chalk board paint and new gadgets.  It was a big hit and continues to be daily.

First Day of School 2013

The day finally arrived.  After about a month of "Do we get to go to school today?" I was finally able to tell them yes!  Ryla was a little nervous when we got there but after a few hugs from Daddy she settled down and was excited again.  I can't believe how big my Aidan looks in this pic!  Made me cry. I am excited for them to have something fun to do every Tuesday and Thursday but also excited to have some special time with Noah.
