Our Weekend, Trains & Trucks

We dropped our kids off at my mom and dad's for the night this Friday. I was so excited to have a night "off" just to relax. We had dinner and saw this train as we were leaving. At that moment, I decided I would have given up the night off just to have Luke here with me to see the "choo choo" that he looks for everyday when we drive by the tracks.
I sent the picture to him and mom said he loved it. Although I'm sure he glanced at it, loved it for a second, and then went on playing his heart out at Nanni and Papa's.

Luke has become quite a daddy's boy lately and Andy is loving it.
Andy missed his little buddy also and decided to spend some quality time with him on Saturday.  I'm pretty sure he couldn't have taken him to a better place in the world...the construction yard his work has at the "BIG Airport!"
Papa went also and I'm so thankful he sent me pictures of their adventure.

Some days I pick my battles...

Okay, so with 2 little ones at home, I pick my battles everyday. But this particular one needed to be documented. I really couldn't think of any good reason why when we had nowhere to go, he couldn't wear his wetsuit on top of his jammies. It made him happy and made me (and the neighbors) smile.

 And while Luke was out fighting sharks, my little miss just took it all in.  She loves to be outside.

Firestation Visit

I promised Luke that he would be able to get on a firetruck when he learned to use the toilet. I'm so proud of how well he is doing so I was thrilled to make good on my promise this past Sunday.  One of Luke's best buds, Caleb, has a grandfather who is a retired fireman and graciously invited us to visit Fireman Binny at the firestation. BIG thanks to Pop and Binny! They came through in a big way and let the boys explore their hearts out.

The look on Luke's face in this picture says it all:



These boys didn't leave anything untouched!
