Lots of Pics, lots of action

After I finished the dishes the other day I walked into the Family Room to start folding the laundry, but found this instead..... So I had to wait a bit to fold laundry. :)If Patrick/T-Rex/Ashton gets left outside for what he deems is too long, I can find him climbing the door screen to get my attention...We have been busy, busy. Last Saturday was my first day hitting all the yard sales and I had a lot of fun. I found Beck a new bike for $5, pretty faded, but he didn't seem to notice. He is having fun learning how to ride his big boy bike. Out at Grandma Ann's he got in a lot of practice on his cousin, Ashton's bike and also really liked riding the scooter around. videoWe had my sister, Kortni's, girls over here for a few days starting at the beginning of the week. It was nice for Beck to have play mates, but difficult because 3 is a crowd. And Paisley just kind of followed around that little gang of cousins. Can you tell that his younger cousin, Piper, is like 3 inches taller than he is? videoPaisley has learned that being a bully can be pretty funny.These are Paisley's first of many Pigtails!!! It is a big day when this happens. I kept trying to get Stephen to look and he was like, "honey, I'm sorry, but pigtails aren't really as big of a deal to me as they are to you." huh, Ya think?This was also our first trip to the Aquatic Center here in town. My kids had a lot of fun. It's hard with one wanting to go one direction and one the other though. I had Paisley standing in the water right next to me and I looked up to watch Beck and Piper go down the kiddy "Octopus" slide and looked back down at Pais and she was face down, arms flailing. Yep, first dunking, I felt like a crappy mom, but I guess, what am I gonna do? I finally convinced Beck to put his life jacket on, so that I felt a little more confident.After the Aquatic Center my cute hubby came home and took me on a date. And as much as he didn't want to I convinced him that we had to take a picture while we were sitting down to eat. I don't think that we have done this since our 1st wedding anniversary! Today was the yard sale and we had a great turn out! There were over 30 yard sale sin our neighborhood and there were people everywhere! It was a lot of fun and I made a little bit of spending money. My niece, Hanna, did better than I did just selling cookies, donuts, and lemonade! After that we got cleaned up and ended up swimming in Kortni's backward. And popsicles just remind me so much of summertime, as much as I prefer winter, I am glad that summer is finally here!

Looks like a lot of fun at your house. I love the first picture of Paisley, that is so sweet. Also her last picture cracks me up.

lots of great pictures! Jax loved to watch Beck ride his bike, he kept pointing to the screen and saying BIKE BIKE. He definitely knows about bikes! I wish we had a cool pool like you guys, we will have to come visit and spend a day there!
I love the picture of the cat on the door, it reminds me of YAYA in our Christmas tree!
Oh yea, and Paisley almost has as many teeth as Jax!
