Color! Color!

These 2 love to color! We have a little table downstairs and one upstairs so that they can color wherever we may be! I just love to watch them create!

First day of Preschool...ever!

So I have to admit as ready as I was to have a few hours to myself, I was pretty nervous about today! Judging from past experience, leaving Finley and Zane with people they do not know has not gone very all.

Drop off went better than I expected...I gave them each a kiss, told them I loved them and said I'd be back later, then I walked out. Not sure that they realized I was leaving which I was okay with!

After parent orientation we walked by their room and heard no crying...whew. Then as I was walking out the door I heard sweet Zane crying but only for a few seconds. As I peeked in the window I saw that his teacher was holding him and they were getting ready for snack. I decided that I should leave so I did and ran about 20 errands when I would typically only be able to do about 2 of those errands with 2 toddlers...crazy how much you can get done!

When I picked them up they were happy which is all I can ask for!! Got a good report from their teachers although they did not like the transition to the playground, and did not like diaper changes (nah, really?!?!). Overall a great first day!

Oh, Sarah and I signed up to be co-room! So I was excited to put together a fun little First Day Survival Kit for the the idea from Pinterest!

Fun little items included minus the water, advil, and chocolate! I had most of the items already so it was an easy little gift to put together!

More fun with shoes!

I wasn't lying when I said they pull out shoes every. single. day. This morning I was getting ready and looked over and saw Zane wearing daddy's snow boots while wearing his camo PJ's! It was too cute and just had to document!

Figuring out how to maneuver in those big boots!

Meanwhile Finley was getting all fancy in a pair of mommy's heels!

Never a dull moment around here!

Time for school!

Finley and Zane will be starting a preschool for 2 mornings a week next week! I am really excited for them! I know that it may be a rough start, but I also know how much fun they are gong to have and what a great experience it will be for them to be away from mommy for a short amount of time!

We went to Meet the Teacher today and met their super nice teachers! Can't say I wasn't nervous about how they would react, but I am happy to say that they didn't want to leave! Let's hope that they remember that come Tuesday!

Big Foot!

Our favorite pastime these days is to try on all of mommy's shoes! I guess daddy's shoes aren't as fun because it is only mine that they pull out of the closet! I am amazed at how well they can walk in them! This happens multiple times a is pretty funny.

...we all scream for ICE CREAM!

A couple of weeks ago we braved the heat and went to the Ice Cream Festival. Not sure if we will go again, but we made the most of it while we were there!

Finley and Zane had their first taste of ice cream!

And had to get popsicles too...

Fun with cousins...

These three are trouble I tell ya!

A sweaty family pic!

Zane: "Maybe if I jump in no one will see!"

Zane admires the musicians on stage!

Aunt Sarah teaches Blakeley and Finley how to square dance (Nani and Papa Bill would be so proud!)

Blakeley loved riding in the airplane!

We all had to godown the big slide...weeee!

Blakeley got some air!
