Boy, I sure have been bad at posting

I have spent most of the last week chasing two silly boys. They are both growing so fast and doing so many new things. Truman added the word, "wow", to his growing vocabulary. Walker has been working on jumping on one foot. He is getting pretty good at it, too.

This past weekend we were able to go to a few of niece Kaisey's all star softball games. It was fun to watch her pitch. The boys had a great time having spray candy, suckers, sno-cones and other things.

We also went swimming at the pool last week with Big B and Uncle Jeff. Gasi came as well and we at pizza and Walker is doing great in the pool. He wears a float suit and goes off the diving board and down the slide all by himself. He is so big. Truman had a great time at the pool as well.

I haven't uploaded any pics this week to the photo sharing site so I will have to post those later. Hope you all have a great 4th if I don't post before.

I don't know how they know this, but...

My blog is worth $2,822.70.
How much is your blog worth?

Weekend at the lake

We spent the weekend at the Caneer's Lake House. We had a great time. I made a slide show of 50 of the pictures. Hope you enjoy.

A Writing Assignment

Jessica is giving assignments and since I always like to be told what to write I thought I would do hers.

But first, last night Walker was walking around half dressed and he walked up to me and said..."what are these two balls doing, Mommy?" I about hit the floor. I turned to Carter and he said that they were just hanging out with Winkie. Oh the things kids come up with. Today in the bathtub he said he had bubbles. I asked him where. He said, "In my butthole!" Aren't boys special?

Has it really been over a week?

Sorry I haven't updated in so long. I have all these great posts in my head, they just don't want to come out. Truman has been sick this week with a nasty cold. I thought Walker was getting it, too, but he avoided it. Walker has started swim lessons this week. He doesn't like it that much, but I am sure that he will perk up sooner or later. We have 3 more weeks of them (and they are free) so we skipped today and stayed home. It was a good thing b/c Truman slept right through it. Maybe next week I will take some pictures of him learning to swim and some of Truman in the water.

It has been really hot here the last few weeks but I really can't complain b/c the weather has been sunny and I am glad that we are not having the really bad weather that the midwest has been dealing with.

Here are some pictures from the past few weeks or so.

I have a few monkeys living at my house. The next pictures will deal with that subject.

It totally wears them out being monkeys.

Makes them hungry, too.
Walker wanted to get in this basket. I had the presence of mind to take pictures.
