Parker is not saying as many funny things as he gets older, but every now and then he comes up with something that makes us laugh.
One day as we were driving to a baseball game, I was trying to talk to Eden about eating more healthy snacks, because she usually refuses to eat fruits and vegetables. She told me she wanted some CheezIts and I was explaining to her that those aren't very healthy. From the backseat, Parker very seriously yelled out, "Mom, CheezIts are healthy... they start with CHEESE!".
Scoop over = scoot over
Runroader = roadrunner
As we were driving to swim lessons last week, Eden out of the blue said, "Mom, there are a lot of mailboxes in this town". It's as if she had never even noticed that every. single. house in town had a mailbox sitting in front of it.
I absolutely LOVE this stage of language development. There are so many things that a two year old messes up and no matter how many times you correct them, they are still going to say it their way. It's almost sad when they finally figure it out and start to say it the right way. Some of my favorites from Lily right now are:
I dum = I'm done.
I doke = I'm cold.
Scoop over = scoot over (I don't know who started saying this first, Lily or Eden, but it stuck and now they both say it wrong)
Swimsoup = swimsuit (I LOVE this one! And since we are swimming almost every day, we hear this one quite often.)
haysnack = haystack (another favorite right now, especially since there are a lot of "haysnacks" in the field near our house)
Lily has inherited her brother's knack for mixing up compound words. (Remember when he called a suitcase a casesuit and a headache an achehead?) One day after the zoo, we stopped to get a milkshake from Chick.Fil.A and from the backseat, she started shouting, "I want some shaky milk! I want some shaky milk!".
Out of the mouth of babes! I can't wait to see what they come up with next!

It's time for an iPhone photo dump. We've been busy the last few weeks!
Parker finished up his regular tball season at the end of May. His coach, Coach Joe, was always calling them "little men", so we decided to play a little joke on him after the last game. All of the boys put on mustaches for the last team huddle to show Coach Joe that they had grown into little men throughout the season! We had such a good season and are so thankful to Joe for giving up his time and weeknights to work with our boys. With his encouragement, they all learned a lot and made so much progress. Go Indians!
Lily thought it would be funny to wear Parker's baseball cap! I'd definitely cheer for her if she was on my team! She might not get any home runs but she would by far be the cutest one on the team!
Lily can now ride her tricycle without any help. Can you tell how proud she is?!?!?
At one point the rash spread to her arm and looked like a smiley face!

I LOVE YOU CORY!
Thank you for taking me as your wife 15 years ago!

Now You Don't!!!
Lily's newest trick is to "hide" when a) she's in trouble, b) she knows she's done something wrong and doesn't want to get in trouble and c) she doesn't want to have her picture made.
I really think she thinks she's hidden and that we can't see her! It's so hard not to laugh every time she does it! Some of the things they come up with at this age are just so priceless!

On Tuesday, our actual birthday, my entire family (minus Lily and Ryan- we're crazy but not THAT crazy!) enjoyed a Rangers game together. I can't remember the last time we've all been to a game together and we had a great time! The kids did pretty good as long as we kept giving them something to eat! Nachos, cotton candy, peanuts, and gum helped them last until the 7th inning.
It felt like we played musical chairs throughout the game... every time I looked up, one of the kids was in a different seat. But they all got a turn sitting with Granna, which they loved!
Our seats were on the third deck but they were in the shade the entire game which made the 95 degree weather a little bit easier to take. And it's probably a good thing that we were so high up and weren't sitting in foul ball territory because I'm pretty sure I was distracted by the kids during 99.9% of the game!
|This is a horrible picture but it's the best one we got to prove that we were all there!|

Emily and I celebrated our 36th birthday this past Tuesday.
We had two different family celebrations that were very different but equally fun! We started on Sunday with dinner at Joe T Garcia's. In order to get seated immediately (which is very important when feeding six hungry kids under six), we could only have our table for an hour due to them needing the table for a later reservation. It ended up being great because we got served quickly and there was very little down time to have to entertain six squirmy kids.
I was so excited to get a Kindle from Cory and the kids. I've been wanting one for a while and can't wait to take it on our cruise next week.
