Memory Lane

The other day, I was outside reading a book while the kids were playing. They love to come home from school and ride bikes or scooters. I realized (I was deep in the novel) that they hadn't zipped by in a while and when I looked up....I couldn't believe what I saw! Before you watch the video you have to know this. When I was a kid, I only had two boys who lived down the street that I played with. One of the things we loved to do was to push each other in the yellow Tonka truck down the side walk. I had to run for my new FlipIt video camera to catch this.....

I love it! Then mom reminded me of the time when I was in the 4th grade, when I was roller skating down a hill and PJ grabbed on to me. While Brady and Kaden didn't get hurt, PJ fell and knocked his two front teeth up in his gum. He was only two!
But back to the fun....The boys were having a blast and who am I to stop them,right?

BTW...we have played outside every nice minute that we can! Kaden is konked out as we speak!

Haint Woo-dis

This weekend, we took a little family trip to St. Louis. This is the first trip (other than to family) that the four of us have taken since Kaden was born. The weather was cold and rainy, and I was really sick...but we had a great time!

First on our agenda, the Arch. I was worried that the boys would be scared on the trip up that high or that once we got up there, they would! They loved it!
Check out my little thug before we went in!

Once we got in, it took about an hour before we were able to go up. So, we patiently waited. This picture of Brady makes him look so old! What happened to my little boy?

As you can see, they are letting their hair grow out! They both look like real boys!

Mr. Brave loved looking out the windows! He went from one to the next jumping around and laughing! I don't think he's afraid of anything...well, dogs...but other than that...not much!

Here are my guys in the top of the arch!

Of course I couldn't leave out the view from the top! I had to do some editing magic because it was such a dreary day. It's still amazing!

After the arch, we went to a parade but didn't stay long because it was cold and I felt horrible! So, off the the City Museum we went!

This place was amazing! There were so many things to climb on and crawl through. I can't describe this place but we had the best time.

The kids played until they passed out! I couldn't believe how brave they were climbing and sliding like they did!

We saw the world's largest pencil and the world's largest pair of underwear! The boys....and when I say boys, I mean Tony too...had a blast. Of course I had a great time too despite being sick. Tony can't stop talking about how much fun he had! I'm sure we will be heading back to Haint Woodis (that's how Kaden says it) before the year is over!
