Fun in the great outdoors!

The weather here has been absolutely beautiful.
Perfectly gorgeous.
So this weekend we found a park that was for little kids.
It was pint-sized and perfect.
Anna and Brown thoroughly enjoyed spending some time in the great outdoors!
Running free!


Anna showing me her "tick" (stick), and boy was she proud of it!!


WEEEEEEEeeeeee!


Enjoying the cool breeze from our balcony!

Rub-A-Dub-Dub . . .

. . . two babies in the tub!
We LOVE our "BAAHHH's" and we take one every single morning!
Sometimes they even last up to 45 minutes!!!!
We love splashing in the "Wah-Wah," playing with our tub toys, finger painting, Color Dropz (they make the water change pretty colors), and our newest love is foam soap!
So much fun.

Washing Bubba's hair!


Finger painting- my future Picasso!


Lining up all of my toys along the tub


My bathing beauty!


Dry and cozy!!

Mr. Happy!

On the other hand . . . Mr. Brown has been so happy!
Isn't he a cutie pie (even with a foam cushion on his head)!

A Sneak Peek . . .

Is this a peek into my near future?
Are the days of having a sweet, perfect, always happy baby girl coming to an end?!?
Anna has always been the happiest most easy-going child I have ever seen, until the past couple of weeks.
Is she hitting the TERRIBLE TWO'S already?
She sure has been expressive lately- crying, throwing herself onto the ground, and even scratching at her Daddy!
No, not my PERFECT baby girl!!!!
So instead of getting frustrated, I'm giggling and taking pictures . . .
documenting our wonderful and mostly happy life!

Expressing herself!

Expressing herself some more!


I hope to see more of this . . .
and this . . .

and this . . .

My sweet, perfect, angelic, baby girl!

Fun at Chuck E Cheese!

Boy, Chuck E Cheese was EXHAUSTING!! Tying to keep up with two running toddlers was A LOT OF WORK!!!! Don't know if I'll do that for a while without an extra set of hands.
The kiddos sure had fun!
Running.
Climbing.
Riding.
On everything.
It was a crazy day, but I sure did enjoy watching them explore. Anna and Brown were so excited from the moment that we arrived until the time that we left. As soon as we got there, Brown cut through the crowd & went running off to explore. Anna was pointing at everything saying, "Ohhhhh! Ahhhh! Weeeeeeh!"
It was a lot of fun, but it wore us all out.
Anna & Brown took a 3 1/2 hour nap as soon as we got home, giving me plenty of time to recuperate!!!!
If Brown went missing, this is where he could be found!

Driving the jet ski!

Driving already!?!

Not so sure about the Merry-Go-Round!

Loved, loved, loved the "hoss" (horse)!
He seriously rode this for 20 minutes.
By far the biggest hit with Brown!!!

My Little Daredevil!

This is what Anna has discovered she can do . . . climb! Look at that cute little grin. So proud of herself! Now I can't trust her either! :(

Where have we been?

First we took another little weekend trip to Lubbock to do a little shopping. Daddy is sooo ready for football season to begin, and he thought we all needed some Red Raider gear to get this season started!
Checking out the "wah-wah" fountains on the Tech campus

Our little cheerleader!

Wearing his new Wreck 'Em Tech t-shirt!


Then we headed to Waco for another short visit with our friends and family

Riding "Melmo" (Elmo) at Toys R Us


She adores "Melmo," but was not too crazy about the ride!


Enjoying some tea & cookies at the Mayborn Museum

Peek-A-Boo!!

"BOO!"

As Brown was jumping out saying, "BOO!" Anna shoved him back into the box.
Just had to share a pic of his shocked look!!!!

"Peek-a-boo!"

Notice the warning on the lid of the box!!!!!
Guess I'm not that great of an example to my kids as I just sat there & let them climb in & out of the box!?! OOPS!!!!!!!!!




New toys

Grandinka & Grandaddy stopped by yesterday on their drive back from Las Vegas and they brought us some new toys! We ABSOLUTELY LOVE our new tent and Anna has only put her beh-beh (baby) down a few times today. Thanks Grandinka & Grandad!!!!
Giving my "beh-beh" kisses!

"Hi!"
Yes, Brown has been wearing his "icky" (Mickey) hat all week long!

Lounging & playing together!

Curiosity . . .

. . . got the best of me!!
Brown has been soooo fascinated with the toilets lately, so I usually keep the bathroom doors shut. Guess I forgot this morning!?! While I was dressing Anna in her room I noticed that Brown had gotten really quite- NOT A GOOD SIGN!!! I quickly finished dressing her, went looking for Brown, and this is where I found him!! He was sitting so nice & quietly on the toilet seat soaking his toes!

Water Babies!

While we were in Waco last week, we spent a lot of time in the water. We enjoyed playing at the splash park, swimming in Grandinka's pool and more swimming at Ridgewood. We are definitely water babies!!

Giving Aunt Min-Min (Mindy) kisses! Anna ADORES her- you would think she's a celebrity the way Anna worships her!

Looking at the "K-iiiiii" (sky)


Splashin' in the water!


Just loving the water!!

Hanging out . . .

. . . in cozy places!
under the side table . . .

hmmm . . . think I can fit?


behind the couch . . .


between the side table & Daddy's chair . . .


under Grandinka's buffet . . .


. . . in the broiler!
Brown has always loved getting into tight places . . . maybe they are cozy to him, maybe his curiosity just gets the best of him?!? I don't know? But if there's a small drawer, cabinet, or space he's going to try it!
