Gardening Day!

We spent a good part of our day today, planting some new flowers, re-mulching and just enjoying the beautiful spring weather. Tye loves playing in the dirt and watering the flowers, over and over, and over. Here are a few pics from the day.

We also took a trip to the zoo on Thursday, which we also called "Field Trip Thursday" because we were joined by 100's of school kids from all over Houston. It was quite crowded, but the boys enjoyed the kids as much as the animals. We had a great time visiting nonetheless. Here are a few pictures, courtesy of Misty. Thanks, Misty.

Love and Blessings,

Sidewalk chalk...

Last week, I let Tye play with some sidewalk chalk in the backyard. He loved drawing on the patio and trying to guess what I was drawing. Not only that, but he just loves being outside, period! So this morning when Tye woke up, I took him in to see daddy, and Tye proceeded to get out of the bed, go into the bathroom and get a pair of Russ's jeans and put them on the bed next to Russ. So I thought...awe, that was cute. Then, Tye went into the living room and got Russ's sandals and brought those in and put them on the bed, next to Russ, as well. Now I am thinking...he is up to something. Next, Tye looks up to Russ and says "side" (which means "outside"), then makes the "more" sign, and says "color". Oh...we finally get it! So I said, "Oh, you want to go outside and color!" He then ran over to the back door and started trying to unlock it. Just when you think they could care less in what you try to teach them, they go and impress you like this. Kids are so smart...he knew that dad needed pants and shoes to go outside. Needless to say...Tye had a great time playing "side" with his "colors" this morning. Just wanted to share that with you.

Here is Tye taking quite an interest in my shoes. It is becoming a daily occurence while am getting ready in the morning. He seems to choose different pair each day. Thought these were a pretty funny choice for the day.

Sit and Spin...

After many attempts of sitting with no spinning and just pushing the button to change the music, Tye has finally figured out the "sit and spin". Let me tell you...they don't make them like they used to. There is no spinning so fast you almost throw up. It is now good fun and a good arm workout for the kids. Here is a short video of Tye conquering the coordination of the sit and spin. Enjoy.
