No pictures today, folks. just some corny things the boys have said lately.

Mommy, where did you get Elijah? From the doctor???

Wouldn't it be really fun to jump really high on the "bounce-o-leen" today?

after my first attempt at doing some preschool activities with josiah at home i asked him if he wanted to do some more. his answer was "well i thought and i thought in the whole wide world, and my answer is NO!"

I was cleaning up in the kitchen and all 3 boys were in the living room. Josiah whines, "Mooom, Elijah's scratching me." I didn't answer right away and he yells out "He does everything whatever he wants!!!"

he had just finished going potty... he says "MOM! I need to say you something!" he grabs his bottom, pulls his butt cheeks apart and walks over to the bathroom scale. he sits down on it (without underwear on). then he says, "Sometimes when I have diarrhea I don't need to throw up."

Happy Birthday, Elijah!

These pictures were taken on the 4th of July. We spent the afternoon with our friends, Drew and Lauren Timberlake and their two boys, Oliver and Ezra. Lauren's parents have a pool, so we got to swim with them and the rest of their family. This is the 2nd year in a row we've done this- we may just have to start a tradition!!

I wish we would have taken pictures of the boys in the water. They are getting so brave. Asher and Josiah jump off the sides into our arms and go all the way under. They have come a long way! Even Elijah loves to splash and put his face in the water.

Later that evening we headed to Drew's parents' house and set off our own fireworks. Michael had fun with Drew and his brothers setting off all sorts of fun firecrackers from the driveway.

Both of the boys loved the ones you throw on the ground and they snap. You can Josiah in action

On the 5th (Elijah's actual birthday), we had the Wiebe's over for a birthday party at our house. I made a gluten free cake with cream cheese frosting (which I'm pretty sure he thoroughly enjoyed). He wasn't too interested in opening gifts, but he had fun with all of his best buddies.

Asher was having so much hamming it up with Chris, I had to take some pictures of them.
