Fun in the Sun

Middle Tennessee has gone from winter to summer once again and the boys have enjoyed the baby pool (Mommy it's not a baby's a little pool says Conner) all weekend.  Conner got his first slight sunburn on the tops of his feet...I have been super diligent about sunscreen use but we somehow missed the feet.  The boys are loving the water and the warm weather.  Conner likes to get Camren wet and he enjoys getting wet!  

The pics are as follows:

1.  Conner taking a break from cruising in his jeep.

2.  Camren cruising in his fire engine.  He is such a cutie and getting SO big!

3.  Conner cheesing with Camren after installing a "satellite dish" on Camren's house.  He was having
 trouble choosing between satellite and cable but I think he made the right choice...definitely more economical  :)  Notice the wires running behind their heads.  The wire is attached to a balloon a/k/a the dish.  He also ran water and electricity lines the same day.

BTW, I am glad that I am not the only one who doesn't like the blogger photo upload process...thanks Mel for making me feel better.  If it bugs you, it must really be a bother :)

Sweet Words from Conner

The following phrases were uttered to me while playing play doh yesterday:

I don't love you.  I love Daddy.  I love Camren.  But I don't love you.

separate conversation but same play session:

Do crabs have stingers?  No Conner I don't think so.  I think they just have pinchers.  Well, Daddy says they have stingers and he's an EXPERT...

Very funny, right?

Happy Easter!

Peter Cottontail came to our house this morning and the boys were quite pleased.  Camren got a new ball (ball, ball, ball, ball as he says many times a day) and Conner got a new bike horn and they got a bubble machine to share.  Of course there were many questions about the Easter bunny and how he gets in our house so I decided to say that Mommy and Daddy help the Easter bunny a lot since I already dread the day of telling him about Santa and all our many lies surrounding his entry into our home at Christmas.  So I didn't try to mask that I reused some baskets we already had and that Daddy's basket was the one Conner used on Saturday for egg hunting.  We had a great lunch with Melanie, Autumn and Joanna and then strawberry cake back at our house for dessert that Melanie made especially for Conner.  

The egg hunt on Saturday was during Camren's usual nap time so he wasn't as excited about eg
g hunting as I was for him...he mainly wanted to get inside the eggs and eat whatever sugary item awaited.  Conner on the other hand had no problem getting 107 eggs!  All in all we've had a nice weekend and thankfully we had decent weather.  

We also celebrated Gary and Angela's upcoming bundle of joy.  Here is a picture of Gary with one of the presents...pump and save breastmilk bags.  I think we should tell him they're not for him :)
