Oh the wonderful things my kids can do...

Brooklyn has become a very skilled climber and can climb absolutely anything... she's a real monkey!

Josh is getting the hang of the slip n' slide.

And, they love to dance.

Brooklyn's Preschool

I signed Brooklyn up for our City's summer preschool program. She goes to preschool everyday from 8:30 AM till 11:30 AM. She had been so excited to start preschool for the last 3 weeks. But, last week she told me that she can't go to preschool yet, because she didn't have a backpack. She didn't really need one, but we got her one anyways. She picked it out and wore it all around the store the last two times we've been. And this week, she started preschool and has been happy wearing her little backpack to preschool. She has, so far, enjoyed every day of her class, and this Friday, a firetruck will visit them and let them play in the firehose water.  So FUN! I am excited for her to have these experiences, and to just plain get out of the house everyday. I am also excited for Joshie to have Mommy all to himself for 3 hours everyday for the next 6 weeks.

Brooklyn LOVES playing with blocks. In fact, she loves anything that you can
build something with - she definitely has engineering blood in her.

Father's Day

Brooklyn really got the idea of Father's Day this year. She picked out Daddy's present (candy - she knows her Daddy well), decorated his card, and even wanted to surprise Daddy by picking up all the toys. She also wanted to spend every moment possible with her Daddy today, including a tea party, of which Daddy played the table and the guest at the same time.

Josh, unfortunately, didn't quite get Father's Day. He didn't know he wasn't supposed to wake up on Father's Day with a horrible rash all over his body - poor boy. We hope to get this remedied by the end of the day tomorrow.

He's Walking!

Josh is now 16 months old. He's 21 lbs and is now (finally) walking. He started taking his first steps before I left for Florida and got lots of practice while with Grandma and Grandpa, but he didn't really start walking till a week after we got back from Florida. Here are some videos of Joshua beginning to walk and how well he is now walking today:

Memorial Day memories

My newest best friend lives across the street from me and they have 3 kiddos of their own. Two of which are Brooklyn's and Josh's ages. So, as you can imagine, we do a lot together, including Memorial Day fun. I invited their family over for some outdoor water fun. We busted out our slip n' slide, the baby pool and a sprinkler and just sat back and watched the kids. FUN!
Brooklyn's first attempt at it:

Even Josh had several goes at it - and LOVED it!
