I tried to post some pictures of our day picking strawberries and playing at the petting zoo but it kept kicking me out after posting theses pictures. I will try to post more pictures later.

The boys had a blast picking Strawberries!!! Though once they realized they could eat them they no longer put them in the box!!! The day was SOOOO very hot but well worth it for the smiles the boys gave me for taking them!

Jack on a mission!

We have BIG news!!!

So much has happened over the last few weeks! The boys are FINALLY over pneumonia! Lordy be it was dreadful! Luckily we were able to stay out of the hospital and just made frequent trips to the pediatrician for check ups. I think that if I were not a nurse they might have thought differently about keeping Jack out of the hospital because the Pediatrician was really worried about him but I felt comfortable about taking him home and watching him myself. PLUS i felt he would just get sicker at the hospital. Lord knows what he would have picked up there in addition to what he already had! And thankfully we made the right choice and he got better staying home!! The boys are now fever free for over a week now and ready for their Birthday Party this Sunday!!!

Now for our BIG news......We are moving back to FLORIDA!!!!!!!! THANK GOD! When we moved back to Kentucky 2 years ago it was never a permanent thing and luckily my husbands new position allows him to live anywhere in the country and we have decided since we really REALLY hate it here in Kentucky and miss our friends and life back in Florida that we will be returning there at the end of Summer. I have been jumping for joy ever since we made the official decision. I miss the beach. I miss the sunshine. I miss Disney World. We will miss our friends here in KY a great deal .....but they can always come and visit :)

Here are some pictures of the boys from today. Since the sun came out today I took them to the park to feed the ducks and play for a bit.

On another great note......... A good friend received her referral for her daughter! We are so happy for her ...well.....All of us except for Palmer....who thinks that Hope is only his and very jealous of anybody else being near her! As she is "Palmer's Hope"

The weather is FINALLY nice

Well it has finally been nice enough around here to get out and play outside! We have taken full advantage of the weather and head to the zoo many days and to the playground just about every day! Other than that there is not a whole lot to report. The boys will be turning 3 at the end of the month and we are looking forward to their party. Here are some pictures from the last week....

Palmer's Big Accident

Laid back! Time to explore!

While playing at the pool yesterday morning Palmer got out to get a noodle to play with and he slipped on the tile and chipped his front tooth!! Oh my poor little guy. This is his first big accident. (Well beside when he swallowed a Christmas light bulb...and another trip to the Er luckily it came out a few days later and he was fine.....) So I rushed him to the dentist after I dropped Jack off at my friends house. Thank God for friends! Palmer was a great trooper!

You would think he goes to the Dentist every day! He was not scared at all! And this was not his normal Dentist. Or the dentist he went to when he was 2. This was the on call Dentist. She was WONDERFUL with him and he did not scream or cry! He was happy as a lark and let them take xrays like a champ! THANKFULLY there was no nerve damage. He has to go back in 3 weeks to have a re eval. He could still lose the tooth because there are fractures in the tooth itself but she is hopeful that that might not happen. She did not want to bond it yesterday since there was trauma to it and was hopefully do it in 3 weeks. She also said that it could turn grey. I really hope that this does not happen. I just feel so bad that he got hurt.

Of course I took pictures of him at the Dentist. I am sure they thought I was a bit odd for doing so but I *HAD* to document it all for his first big fall. He woke up this morning and said that his boob boo tooth hurt. My poor baby. Lots of snuggles and cuddles in store for today!!!

After the Dentist we went to a park that we saw on the way home. It has rained for a few days so it was quite muddy but I allowed the boys to go anyways since Palmer asked to go. Oh were they dirty. The park/playground was not that nice but they had fun!

Here are a few pictures of the day!

A day at the Zoo

It was FINALLY nice enough outside to go to the zoo!! We actually went 2 days in a row!! Palmer woke up yesterday and asked "Bye bye car? Go see animals zoo? Please?" How can you tell a adorable kiddo NO when they ask so sweetly and THEN say Please? So off we went to the Zoo...........again. I think it was only 60 degrees which is a heatwave for us. However after the weather we have been having I will take it!! The sun was out! There was no snow or rain! Just sunshine! The boys were happy! What more could you ask for!

Here are a few pictures from our day at the zoo! Sorry they are not edited. I have no clue how to edit them and my husband is out of town.

Jack is in the Blue hat and Palmer is in the Tan hat.

Time for a Water break


EEK! Spiders!!!

Jack again!


Jack and a stick

For some reason I had so many more of Jack than Palmer this time. Which is odd because normally it is Palmer I have more of.

After the Zoo we came home changed clothes and went to dinner with Hope of who Palmer thinks is "His Hope" and he will proudly tell you! Jack even calls her Palmer's Hope. We all had a great time at dinner and we can't wait until next month when Hope gets her referral!!!! Though I think Palmer is going to be a bit jealous of missing his tickle time!!!
