The boys had such great time just doing what boys do...playin in the dirt and "building" things with wood & sticks. Give them a shovel and they're in heaven.

My camera battery died right after I took my first you'll have to check out Amber's and Melissa's blogs. Thanks Melissa for the few you shot over :)

They're crazy and I love it!

Wyatt: Mom, spiders poop webs out their bums.

Connor: Has learned the "Jack be Nimble" nursery rhymn at school. While watching dirt bike riders on TV do all kinds of crazy jumps, Connor says, "Man, that guy is NIMBLE!"

Wyatt: When horses get scared, they do pop-o-wheelies.

Wyatt: Going on airplanes tickles my weiner.

Real Life

Sticks and stones, they break bones
But poisonous words can sting
A caring heart, that has been tried
Beneath the microscope
Children’s lives centered on
Rallied round, tucked in each night
A lullaby sung to ease the day
Gospel truths trusted in
Effort to try my best
The measuring stick laid down
Sticks and stones, they break bones
Who’s anxious to hurl the first?

A grateful heart
A loving heart
A hand that holds difficult cards
But smile for what is had
Health and strength
Two able hands
To wrap around my babies
And to help those I can
A willing heart
A humble heart
Two hands to do my best

I’m happy and I’m able
Who could ask for more?
I love my family and my friends
Who could ask for more?
We stumble, learn and laugh together
Who could ask for more?
Each new day brings new hope
Who could ask for more?

Soooo most Sundays we get together at the Duke's for family dinner and the kids are wild and c-r-a-z-y. Thought maybe a fun activity would help keep them entertained a little bit. Got the idea from OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) It's a super fun kid's museum that is amazing if you ever get the chance to go there. The link for the recipe is HERE.

The pics from above were taken tonight at the Duke's and the pics below are from our trip to OMSI.

Nick the Lizard

Connor caught a lizard in Debbie's backyard yesterday. He named him Nick :) Connor wishes I woulda named him Nick too. I'm sure he's gonna die you can see by his half open eyes from the the pic..Con insists, "he's just sleepy!"

So we brought him home and while the boys were showing him to their friends in the neighborhood, the lizard of course got loose. I was able to catch it again and you shoulda seen their faces! "Whoa, Mom you caught a lizard!!! Cool!" Ya, it was pretty cool ;) ha ha.

Wyatt puts the rubber snake next to the lizard's house so he can have a friend and Connor lets him watch TV with him. Right this second Wyatt is singing the lizard a song. Awesome.
