This picture is me trying to get Luke and Kolby to stand together for a picture. I thought, it would be cute to take pictures in the same spot as they get older. As you can see Kolby is not big on standing in one spot.
I love this picture of Luke from last year. There is this great little water feature at a park in Salt Lake City. Luke LOVED it. We are hoping to take the boys next week while we are up there.

This is what I found when I got out of the shower yesterday.... Tupperware cupboard completely empty..... everything was thrown all over the kitchen floor.
And whats that in the cupboard.... is it legs???
Yep this is how I found Luke. spinning around on the lazy susan. He was trying to talk Kolby into climbing in on the bottom shelf, but Kolby was having nothing to do with it.
So I think to myself "hum this is probably one of those times when I should be mad". But really how funny is that, to see a kid spinning around on a shelf? So while laughing I grabbed the camera, and as you can see Luke was only to happy to smile for the picture.
Life is never dull :)

There are several different caves to explore. On this one Dewey and Sam stayed up top with the "Little's" and I took Sam's two oldest kids through it. Parts of it you are literally crawling and scooting on your stomach, cool stuff.
Look at the smile on Luke's face, does it get any better for a boy then to hold an actual frog? (we made a big production of letting all the frogs go back into the lake....no frogs were harmed in the making of this picture :)
And finally we went to a campground to have dinner. We (meaning Dewey) built a fire and the kids got to roast hot dogs. This little stream was right next to our spot. Isn't it just beautiful?
It was such a fun day, just relaxing and playing with nature.

Denise sent Luke a "Denim" Quilt last year that he loves to snuggle in. So we were so excited to receive this one for Kolby so he has his very own snuggle blanket. I just love quilts, they take so much time and effort to make, so much love is put into them. I really believe that you can feel that coming through when you sit with it wrapped around you.
THANK YOU so much Denise, it means the world to us, we appreciate your thoughtfulness!!
Kolby's not to sure what to think of riding horses yet. Hes so funny he gets the most serious looks on his face.
Luke love loves to ride with dad. He was just laughing but of course I missed that shot.
I love this pick of Dew and the boys, we have a great park in town that the boys just love to play at.

Luke was happily playing with some dirt and rocks, Kolby ran right past heading for things to explore....chickens....horses...hay...cats.... whatever catches his eye. On a positive note, I'm notoriously unmotivated when it comes to exercise. Running after him is forcing me to get my heart rate up, thats got to be good for me right???

I'll start with Luke (since he is the one that talks :)
1. "My brother, Kolby"
Luke says this to anyone we meet, or anyone we stop to talk to.
2. " Mama whats that"?
I hear this at least 510 times a day
3. " No relax, walk!"
On Sunday we told Luke that we would all go for a walk after dinner. As soon as we were done eating Dew said he was going to relax for a minute. Luke started running around saying "No, relax" it took us a minute to understand what he was saying, then we burst out laughing when we figured it out.
4. "Riley come to my house"
He says this at least 5 times a day. Riley is his friend from school, he wants him to come over and play
5. "Daddies work"
We drive past Dewey's office everyday and Luke looks out the window until he can see it, so he can point it out.
6. "Oh tootles"
His current favorite show is Mickey mouse's clubhouse. He puts his hands around his mouth and yells this just like on the show.
7. "NO Kolbeeeeeeeee"
This is another one we hear ALL day long. He says Kolby with a very heavy emphasis on the E.
8. "I Love you"
We say this a lot but every night before bed we each point to our eyes then our heart then each other as we say it.
Now for Kolby....
He really only says two things, "Mama" and "Dada". Both bring a smile to our heart.
He also grunts a lot and points to everything. With all the random baby noises he makes I'm sure it won't be long before he is saying more words.
Now anyone who is reading this and has talking kids or kids just starting to talk, consider yourself tagged. Because there is just not much cuter then the things kids say.

So instead you get a update......
We are finally starting to feel normal again. I am loving seeing Kolby smile again!! His laughter is music to my ears. I missed it more then I realized these past couple of weeks. He is definitely getting back to his carefree happy self. He and Luke are starting to play really well together. At the moment they are outside transferring the rocks that we use as a border to the back patio and into the house through the sliding glass door. They really do have toys outside to play with but they spend 90% of their time with the rocks. Go figure..........
It feels good to get back into the swing of things, today the boys and I did the ever exciting Grocery shopping. Hey I'm just happy to be able to get out of the house, so no complaints from me.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

It always amazes me to see the way people pull together when something like this happens.
Troy and Wendy mean the world to us....... Troy is one of the best people I know, I could go on and on but I think he knows how we feel about him.
Troy don't scare us like that again!!! We LOVE you!!!!
