Summer Days and Nights

The evenings over the last couple weeks have been so nice!!  We've gone on a walk almost every night since it's been fairly cool.  That's the first thing Jacob asks to do when daddy comes home!!!  Here's some things we've been filling our time with during the days and evenings!

Any time we go on a walk, we have to make a quick stop at the park for a trip down the slide, a climb on the monkey bars or a run in the grass!!! So thankful we have a playground so close-by!

I took this picture after Jacob had raced me around the park.  He's quick.  He loves to run and loves to try and beat me!!!  When we were done with our stroll he was sweating!!!!  Just learning from him mommy and daddy on running technique!!!  Gotta start him young!!! =)

Last week, I knew I needed to do some organizing....I spent the morning reorganizing the garage and organizing all the toys!!!! One couldn't tell I did anything during the day but I felt so accomplished when I was finished!!!!  They will be organized until a group of kids come over and ruin everything!  Oh well.... While I was organizing, they had fun playing in the garage making little houses, beds, etc. =)  I'm sure the garage floor was spick and span...and germ free! =)

One day, during their playtime, Jacob somehow hit Jackson....(which never happens.....ya right!).  He did do it on accident so he went and got Jackson an "ice pack" for his head.  I was cracking up at the size, hence the picture.  If you can't tell, he's definitely not crying...but smiling and saying "cheese" in the picture!!!  What a ham!

We've started potty training!!!!  Well, kind of.  He's been going to the bathroom on the little potty for quite a while now when he doesn't have a diaper on....but over the last week or two he's started taking off his diaper to use the toilet instead!  I wanted to wait until we got back from High School camp in NM to fully train him since we were going to take a long drive.....and wanted to have the DIAPERS! =)  I decided to let him go a few days in undies to see how he would do.  He did great!  The first day he only had 1 accident!!!!  We've had a few since then and I haven't been consist with only undies as we've been gone for a few of those days....but once we get back from camp, I'll tackle this area and we will be diaper free!!!  Such a big boy!

 CRAZY HAIR DAY! This is what his hair looks like after the pool!

Almost every time Jackson wakes up from his nap, he looks for me to lay on and snuggle.  I love these moments.  Half the time he falls back asleep....The other times he just lays with me. =)  I won't forget these precious moments!! He's such a cuddle bug!

I just had to take this picture.... Sully wanted to play in the pirate tent!!! =(  Too bad the boys didn't play with him....I'm sorry Sully!! But you do look cute!!!

One of the days, I was kind of crazy and decided to take both boys BY MYSELF to our Aquatic Center.  They had a BLAST!!!!  Unfortunately, they couldn't go down the big slide...but I had fun chasing both of them around with a maxed out occupancy in the water!!!!!  They loved it.  We will definitely go back...but I think I'll bring Jeremy with me next time!!!! 

Yup, he thought it was sunscreen.  Not so much, son.

Last weekend we had no plans in the evening...so we decided to make it a family night!  We went to my favorite restaurant, Cheesecake Factory, and then headed over to Castle Park for a little miniature golf action!  It was fun watching Jackson bounce the ball in the hole...or roll in down the sidewalk from one hole to the next....and watching Jacob actually get a hole in 1!!!!!  We made it for about 10 holes and decided to call it a night.  =)  Jeremy definitely had better putting skills than me..but he's had more golfing practice!! That's what I think at least! =)

His "hole in 1" hole. =)  Hole 4.   Good number- happens to be my favorite!

 I love my husband and father to our boys soooo much!

 One of the evenings taking a walk.....took this picture because his big brother fully dressed him. =)  Nice style, Jackson!  Plaids, stripes, different colors...I'm sure they are all in style together now!

 Finally, this was today at lunch.  Jacob ate probably 15-20 carrots!!!!!!!  He said that bag had really good carrots.  Maybe because they were organic? =)  I have no idea...but I'm not complaining!  Hopefully, all his carrot-eating will make him turn out with good eyesight!!
