My friend gave us a large zucchini from her garden and my little boy wanted to carve a face on it. So I carved a little face for him and he carried around for a couple of days pretending it was a baby.
Then we had to grate the zucchini up to make some bread. Having my son become attached to it made this task somewhat difficult if you could imagine.
My dishwasher has been broken for a long time and we don't have the money to replace it so now I have 3 dishwashers! And they do a fantastic job. I think we end up with more water on the floor than in the sink though. We are trying to make jobs in the family a team effort and not just one person doing all the work. Sometimes it's more work for me than to just do it all myself and sometimes they fight... but for the most part they are learning to interact with each other and communicate as they work together.
Of course we have one more helper. She's just old enough to splash in the water though. She does a good job at just being cute.
Well my son was upset that I was leaving and decided to plan a get together with all the guys. My brothers-in-law all had other plans but it was so cute to see this invitation my son made. He loves getting together with family!
My son dresses up like a super hero every day. He makes his own costumes too. Check out the undies on the outside of his pants.... isn't that the way Superman does it?? Also sporting a pillow case cape and brandishing a weapon made of mega blocks!!
This summer we did go camping once. We live near some beautiful mountains and it's a shame to go a whole year without visiting them.
C* loved playing with my wrist rocket.
C*, M* and MJroastin' some hot dogs.
"Why don't you go jump in a lake!" That's exactly what we did! It was a spontaneous decision, we didn't have the right clothes for it but we didn't care. I think this was the highlight of our vacation. I love spontaneity!!
