Major Flashback!

 Matt took this picture of Oliver at the table the other day.  I wondered to myself, where does this attitude come from?!  How can a child be so sweet and sassy at the same time...
...and then I came across this ancient photo of myself at his age.  It's amazing how children have a way of bringing you back to your own childhood.
 My children's innocence reminds me that we were all once that pure, and sweet, and sassy.  In God's eyes we are all his children, therefore his love is unconditional.  Much like the love only a mother can have for her babies. 
  I love you mom.  Thanks for loving me and thanks for the ride.

Night at the zoo

A conversation with Oliver at the Zoo:

Me:  Hey Oliver, look at that goat's big tummy, it has a baby inside!
Oliver:  Did it eat it?
Me:  Nope it's just...there.
Oliver:  Do you have a baby in your tummy?
Me:  Gosh I sure hope not.
Oliver:  Do you have a goat in your tummy?
Me:  Quite positive that I don't.  Only goats have baby goats.  Remember when Hazel was in my tummy?
Oliver:  Did she come out of your mouth?
Me:  (Not ready to have this conversation with my 3 yr old)  Uhhhh....she just...came out.  (Making a wide sweeping motion with my hands).  Do you want some ice cream?!
Oliver:  Oooooo ice cream!!

 Miss Hazel's first carousel ride

Fun foot massager...
Not so fun foot massager.

Happy 4th of July

We had a great time at the Tosa parade.  The kids are finally at the age where they can enjoy these kinds of events, even if it was 100 degrees out.  The fire truck and race cars were a bit hit with Oliver.
 Hazel and her friend Gabby had the same shirt.  Too cute!
