A day at the park

Reed just got home from a crazy, busy week in London. Luckily, the weather has been gorgeous so we decided to head down to Sweetwater Park. It's a great park with trails, a river and a lake. The boys loved the water and Matts was especially excited because we saw a SNAKE! He's still convinced it was a "cobra-copperhead". Finally, while Reed was gone I took a bunch of pics, so check out our album at shutterfly.

The amazing Grayson

Gray, not to be out done by Matts' sweetness and soccer playing, did something post worthy of his own. I was getting lunch ready while the boys were in the playroom. Matts was helping me and Gray was playing with blocks and harrassing Oakley. Once lunch was ready I went to go get Gray. He was NOWHERE! I looked all over and it was suspiciously silent. On a long shot I went upstairs, thinking there's no way (He's never even climbed one stair). Of course, I found him tearing apart Matts' closet. Who knew Gray was such a determined little acrobat ?
How I found him.
Who, Me?

Sweet, crazy boys

I just had to write a quick post before I forgot. Matts was in rare form today. He was EXHAUSTED from his first soccer game (a whole other post) yesterday and had looped back around to overdrive. He was literally running around like a mad man and laughing hysterically at everything. Family Home Evening was a joke . It was one of those times you can laugh or cry. Luckily, our good friends were over and their little guy was in rare form as well, so we laughed. It also helped that Matts had been incredibly sweet earlier. Over lunch he stopped eating and stared at me for a couple minutes. As time went on I asked him what was up and he responded that he was just looking at me. Then in the sweetest voice he said "Mommy you're really beautiful, you need flowers". Sweet boys who have been taught well by their daddy.

Grayson loves...

I almost forgot to add these pics, which are quite amusing. Gray is really coming into his own lately and has some strong opinions about what he likes and doesn't like. The two things he loves the most right now are his Daddy and his stroller, check it out.
Gray, his new stroller and Mr. Bukkachicka He can even walk with it
I know it's purple, but he LOVES it
This is how excited he gets just hearing Reed walk in the door
Having fun with Daddy

A week of firsts

This week Matts started preschool and Gray started standing. They are both VERY excited about their new accomplisments. Obviously, my theme for the month is time passing too quickly. But, watching the boys grow up always catches me off gaurd. Especially when I realize that Elle would've been starting real school this year.
The start of the traditional first day of school pics.
