Our boys

I forgot to add these pictures last night.
This is our oldest, Simon.
And here's Ben.

The baby only has 2 teeth. You can't tell in this pictures, but so far they look pretty good. Who knows...maybe one day he'll have a gold toof just like his daddy! :)

Field Trip

Simon had a field trip to Plum Creek Nursery last Monday. Jon had the day off so I was able to go along. I was so excited to have some time with just Simon.
Before we left, the class did their normal songs and prayers. It was so neat to be there for that. I really enjoyed it. He doesn't talk much about what he does at school. The other moms waiting in the hallway with me said the same thing about their kids too. It was funny. Secretive little pre-schoolers! :)
Getting on the bus.

The hay maze. He had a blast figuring this out.

Choosing his pumpkin.

The one he picked. He's not really sad. He just wanted to make a sad face. He's such a funny little boy.

We had such a nice time together. The weather was perfect. I got to know some of his new friends and their moms. And the best part of all...there weren't any little brothers needing my attention. Four straight hours with my boy, Simon. I seriously cannot wait for the next field trip!!!

We took the boys to Glenwood Stables. They had never been horseback riding and it was such a beautiful day so we decided to go after church last Sunday. There was a HUGE party that afternoon so we didn't have much time.
Simon loved it!

Ben, on the other hand, was scared of the horses and really wanted nothing to do with them. He pulled the reigns with Jon once, but this is where he was basically the entire time. The Tractors!!! Don't worry, I made sure there wasn't a key in it. :) Ben would have been driving that tractor down the gravel road in no time, I'm sure!

We managed to get one picture of him on the horse for about a minute. You can't tell, but he's screaming his head off.

Then we went to Cold Stone. That was the one thing too many, but all in all, it was a good day!

All Dressed Up & Nowhere to Go!

These are the pictures I came home to a few weeks ago when I had 5, yes 5 hours without children! My mom and I had manicures and pedicures. Then shopped a bit with Aimee - then lunch, again with NO children! Then we shopped some more! What a great day.
So now I have a few more choices for Halloween. With so many cute costumes, which ones do I choose!??!! Such a dilemma! :)

Lost & Found!!!

Yea!!! We found the camera! Jon took Simon to the race track last weekend and we haven't been able to find the camera ever since. But...we found it TODAY! In Jon's truck - where he left it! :)
So I will be posting some pictures shortly. Grandma & Grandpa Stevens need to see the boys while they are in England - resting from their 3-week trip to Croatia - before they go to Russia on the 14th. (A little "Where in the world are Mike & Penny" info. for anyone wondering!)
