Toddler Time

Nat and Levi playing with play-doh. Natalie ate most of hers.

With a 2 and 4 year old, we have our share of arguements. I find that if I keep them busy, we are all so much happier. What kinds of activities do you do to keep your kids playing nicely together? I need more ideas!!!
My latest idea was to make "peanut butter play-doh". It was a lot of fun and pretty tasty too! The kids had a blast!

This is Levi's "rocket ship". Can't you see where the fire comes out? And that's the "seat" for the man on the top.

More zoo pictures!

Kelli, Bryson, Chantel, Brooklyn, Becca and Emily all came and enjoyed the zoo with us. We had lots of fun and the kids had fun showing the babies all the cool things at the zoo.

Zoo trip!

So, we took a zoo trip on Friday...not that this was unusual, but I happened to have my camera and that was unusual! I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but my kids favorite parts of the zoo are the trash cans, the sewer drains, and now while Africa is under construction, the bulldozers! I am sure that I appreciate the animals WAY more than they do. I love going to the zoo!

The kids had a blast in the water and got excited about the tiger right at the window. They also were excited to get a picture taken in the eggs because everyone else does! I hope they never get tired of going to the zoo!

Celebrity Look-Alikes!

This one comes from Stephanie's blog. Geo (my hubby) thought it was hilarious and put just about every picture on our desktop into the face recognition thing. So here is our family. Yeah, my favorite is that Natalie is a 19th century Italian economist. The site was Try it!

Kid Pics

Well, here are some pics of my kids! Sam is the super smiley guy-6 months old now! Levi will be 4 next week and Natalie (pictured with my mom) is 2.5 and doesn't let us forget it! Our house is a busy one, but I wouldn't have it any different. I can remember when I had Sam, the nurse told me, "You either stop at 2 kids or move right on to 4. 3 is just tough!" It has been, but so worth it! Enjoy the pictures!
