Meemaw Connie and Pawpaw Bear came to visit us today. "Doodle britches" smiled and was happy to see them. Zachary had a big time playing ball and getting kicked in the booty.

Wiley's 16th birthday

Wiley turned 16 years old yesterday. We had a little family party for our senior citizen. Joshua got to take his first picture with his "big brothers". Zachary was more interested in the balloons at the party. Wiley's cake was half watermelon with popcorn, strawberries, kiwi, and cantelope toppings. He had carrot candles that he enjoyed while we sang Happy Birthday to him.

Josh is 4 months old

Here are some pictures of Josh on his 4 month birthday! He went to the Dr. today for check up and shots. He was 17 pounds and 25 inches. (He is a big boy in his 12 month clothes.)

Great Exploration Children's Museum

We went to the children's museum in St. Petersburg. Zachary had a big time! His favorite activity was the big tree house that had a slide. He climbed the stairs and slid down the slide for about 30 minutes and we went back one more time before we left. Josh got to slide with daddy. Zach also loved the water and farm areas. The farm area had tons of balls that were supposed to be oranges. They had lots of activities to do with the balls. He hit pipes with paddles that made music and played in a camping tent. Joshua loved looking around and watching the kids. He finally passed out!

Pool Fun!

Both boys love the pool.  It is Zachary's favorite thing to do here in Tampa.  We have to watch him carefully because he is getting brave about jumping in and trying to swim to us.  His favorite pool toy is the watering can and he got some hand-me-down torpedos yesterday that are too much fun.  Joshua kicks constantly and tires himself out.  Yesterday he thought it was big fun just to relax and float.  He has to take little cat naps after each swim.

Sleepy Time!

Both boys really missed their daddy!  They enjoy a little snuggle time every now and then.  Daddy loves it too!  Zachary snuggles on the couch and Joshua snuggles on the balcony at bed time.

Yesterday we went to the Lowry Park Zoo and had a great time.  Zachary was a little bit of a grump, but he liked the Manatee Aquarium and feeding the fish and turtles.  Joshua was very good, he rode in his stroller and took a nap and bit Daddy's finger.  We met Jim, Dena, and Brooke there.  Zachary really likes Brooke.
