I am totally behind in blogging, but before I blog about our summer activities, and our big trip to Disneyland, I want to document some of the fun times we had this Spring. Keep in mind that Spring here was rainy, even snowy!, and freezing. We have finally got a taste of warmer weather just the last couple of weeks! It has been interesting trying to find things to entertain the boys!
Rainy, dreary days don't keep Jack down. He just busts out his Spiderman umbrella and loves to stand in the rain. Doesn't he look happy in these pics? I also love that Zander is staring longingly out the window wishing he could join Jack outside in one of the pictures!
I have taken the boys to the rec center swimming pool a few times, but this was the only time I remembered the camera. I seriously have two little fish! They both absolutely love being in the water!
We love to go to the library and Jack loves to have me read stories. Each week we check out a huge stack of books to read together. Sometimes we end up with some really lame ones, but we have also found a few treasures. One of those fun books was, "Cook-a-doodle-do." It's about a hen who recruits some clueless friends and together they make a strawberry shortcake. It is so cute and actually includes a recipe for strawberry shortcake. So one day Jack and I read the book and made strawberry shortcake along with the characters in the book! (As you can see, while Jack and I had fun baking, Zander whined and got into the trash.)
Here is Jack making a weird face and modeling one of the jungle animal tattoos he got from one of Grandma Hansen's packages.
My boys just LOVE being outside. So even when it wasn't that warm, if it was nice enough, we headed to the park. We love going to the park. The boys loves to swing, play in the sand, eat wood chips, etc! Here is one of our visits, and it wasn't warm! Notice the boys all bundled up, but having fun anyway!
One Saturday we headed to Cheyenne for some shopping and to eat somewhere different. We promised Jack we would stop at a park, and in some roundabout way, we discovered this amazing Children's Village park. I am excited to go back sometime this summer now that it is warmer and in full operation and see all the fun stuff there!
One day I heard that the circus was in town. I love the circus, so I decided I would take Jack on a Mommy/Son date. We had a great time! Jack couldn't believe his eyes with all the animals, colors, lights, etc! We shared a snow cone, snuggled, and we loved seeing all the animals, cool tricks, and interesting acts! I love the picture of Jack looking so worried about the man balancing on the stack of chairs!
It's always fun to play with Legos and make marble towers! (And Daddy is SO much better at it than this Mommy!)
One night Jack and Dustin had a little sleepover on the air mattress in our living room!
Here is a trip to the park on a warmer day and Daddy even got to come with us! I love the looks of pure joy on both boys faces as they swing!
Oh and Dustin and I even got to go on a date in there somewhere. I planned a date for us to go to dinner and to the musical "Chicago" on campus. It was pretty dang awesome! I love that dirty little show!
So we had some good times this Spring. I am glad to have summer here though now! Besides our amazing trip to CA we are having fun going to the park, the splash pad, the wading pool, the swimming pool, playing with friends, and going on bike rides, walks, and just being outside. It has also been nice to have Dustin home a little more! Gotta love summer time! :)
