turn your volume up!!! sarah and drew singing...6.17

please note: when tim tries to get drew's attention, drew says, "what?". such a lovely habit he has recently picked up. also look how IRRITATED drew is when sarah tries to sing with him. no sibling rivalry at our house...oh never :) sarah is often with crown these matter how terrible the rest of her ensemble is!

last day of gymnastics camp...6.20

sarah went to SEGA gym for preschool summer camp the week of june 16th-20th. SHE. HAD. SO. MUCH. FUN!!! it was a great little camp from 9-11:30 each morning. they did lots of tumbling, obstacle courses, relay races, rope swings, trampolines, and more! and they had a week long art project and popsicles each day! what more could a kid ask for?!? on the last day, i brought my camera along to get a few shots of the action! of course, sarah and griffin hammed it up for the pictures!!! a little gymnast/entertainer in training...

p.s. and as always, poor little brother drew did not understand why he didn't get to go too. he got stuck running errands with mommy every morning. although, he did score a few bags of popcorn at target while mommy shopped :) guess he didn't fare too badly...

backyard fun...

poor aunt annie has been waiting ever so patiently since mother's day for me to FINALLY post pictures of our new swingset. while i was at it, i thought i would put some pics of sarah's aquatic gymnastics too! she is fearless in the water this year! so much fun!!!

our morning at the movies...6.3

i took the kiddos to see flushed away (sadly, i'm not really sure that was the name of the movie) at the $2 summer movie festival last week. sarah finished her popcorn and sprite before the movie even started. and she started needing potty breaks about 20 minutes into the film. the movie really didn't hold her attention at all. little brother, on the other hand, was mesmerized and just stared the whole time. we left after about an hour and 15 minutes so we could make it to swim lessons on time, and that was long enough for sarah!!! i thought the movie was pretty un-entertaining, it didn't hurt my feelings any to leave early!

touch a truck...5.31

the city of germantown hosted a "touch a truck" day on may 31st. they had a couple of fire trucks, a dump truck, a back hoe, a street sweeper, an ambulance, etc for the kids to crawl all over! and the kids were allowed to push the was a loud day! the kids enjoyed walking around for a while, but then got super hot and cranky. so, we headed out after about an hour...but not without snapping these pics!!! oh, the pic of drew and the seat belt...he was completely consumed with getting the seat belt on in EVERY truck he sat in. thankfully, the firemen, truck drivers, etc. were very patient and said sweet things like, "safety first, little guy". it was a fun, albeit short, morning!!!

just a few thoughts...

+we had our ultrasound this morning! we found out we are having a healthy baby boy! i was so surprised! i was SO sick with sarah, and i was SO sick with this baby, that i was sure it was a girl! all the measurements and pictures showed a good heart with 4 chambers, two of all the organs you are supposed to have, etc!

+sarah is so confused about having a baby brother (again)! she apparently thinks that you can't have 2 brothers...she keeps saying, "i already have a little brother!"

+tim is thrilled that he only has to pay for one wedding some day!

+sarah is taking swimming lessons this week. she is really enjoying them this year! a little less fear than last year. she told me that she jumped in "all by myself" today!

+every day when we drive up to swim lessons (at miss aggie's house), drew says, "almost there...g.g.'s house!". poor baby...he thinks we are saying g.g. instead of aggie.

+sarah and drew are obsessed with the movie Shrek right now...cute that my kids actually like a movie that i can tolerate...not so cute that my kids are singing along to "she was looking kinda dumb with her finger and her thumb in the shape of an "L" on her forehead"!

+you know its summertime when your neighbor doesn't start cutting his grass until AFTER you put your kids down :)

+i finally like the taste of diet coke coke has been my addiction for as long as i can remember (well, since college) and it tasted GROSS for the first 17ish weeks of this pregnancy. i am so happy to have my friend back!!!

+we don't have a boy named picked out for this baby yet...for me, this is pretty crazy. i've had names picked out since middle school (including using sarah and drew) and i am a big planner. the problem came in when tim didn't want to discuss names until we knew if we were picking a boy or girl name.

+tomorrow i am having a spa day!!! tim is playing in a 3 day golf tournament next he is trying to butter me up in advance! he is taking off work to keep the kids, and i am spending the day at gould's! sweet!

+for weeks, when you asked drew how to spell his name, he said, "D-R-A-R-A-H". sweet thing thought his name MUST be like big sissy's! finally, he is spelling it correctly. the other funny thing about this...every time he spells his name, he looks down at his shirt and points out the "letters". i know i put my kids in monogrammed shirts a lot, but...

+last week drew hurt his ankle, and we ended up at an orthopedist's office which happened to be at a hospital. when we were going to the hospital, sarah asked repeatedly if we were going to the hospital to "get my little sister". (by the way, drew is fine--no fractures! boys!)

+today when we came home from the ultrasound appointment, sarah was mad at us that we didn't bring the baby home with us! apparently, this is a HARD concept!!!

+i can count on ONE hand all the movies i've seen in a theater since i've had kids...this week alone i have been to the movie theater 3 times! i saw sex in the city with tim, and what happens in vegas with mary, and then took the kids to see flushed the last one doesn't really count, but i still had movie theater diet coke and popcorn 3 times!!! wow!

+okay, i think i've rattled on long enough...thanks for reading!

an afternoon at the sprinkler park...5.24

the kids had so much fun in the morning playing at the sprinkler park that we returned after naps for a second time!!!
