My mom has requested her "grandson fix," so in her honour, some pictures:
Iain and Isaiah at Cow Appreciation Day:
Jenna and her new ergo. She's standing in front of those sticks I have on the wall; it's not her hair sticking out. :) Look at my cute nephew!
Hopscotch on the back deck:
My, what a handsome fellow.
Early July found us at the boys' first movie ever: Veggie Tales' The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. Liz and Penny joined us, though Penny didn't last too long. It was a valiant effort. At Jeremy's request, I bought them popcorn, but they didn't eat much of it (the three of us couldn't even finish the kid-sized portion). Cory sat on my lap for most of the movie and loved it; he kep asking, "What is going to happen next?" Iain, my very visual child, was a bit scared but bravely stuck it out, burrowing his face into my side occasionally. Cory loved "the yellin' cheetos" and Iain favored the Rock Monsters.
Silly Iain's pose when I told him I was going to put pictures on the blog for Nona:
The boys have been asking for ages to ride the train at the mall. We decided that when the baby sister came home, we'd do it to celebrate. But we needed something to keep up morale around here one day, so we decided we will go again when the baby sister comes home.
They loved the train ride. Cory sang "I am a conductor riding a train" half the time. They had to sit in the caboose, of course. They waved to everyone we passed and told people they couldn't keep up with us. Liz and Penny joined us for this adventure, too - we are so glad to have them along on these adventures!
After the train ride, the boys played in the mall play place. Fearless Cory just jumped and jumped off everything the whole time.
