Fun summer day

Andrew spent the day with a friend eating ice cream and playing in a sandbox. Doesn't get much better than that when you are a 3 year old! In typical Andrew fashion he was very slow to eat his ice cream and it melted. This kid never gets in a hurry when it comes to food. Guess that is a good thing!

Check out this double rainbow

The past few days we've been getting some strong storms in the afternoon. Yesterday we had a really big storm blow in and it left this beautiful double rainbow. I've never seen one and the picture doesn't even do it justice. The bottom rainbow was so vibrant.

Little fish...

I know what you are thinking. What is up with the goggles? For some reason Andrew has a fascination with these red goggles and everytime he plays in the backyard he either has them on the top of his head or over his eyes. He wears them swimming, riding his tractor, quad and tricyle and when he is just running around exploring. I bet he'd wear them to soccer if we let him. Well gotta run - have a great day!

So Silly!

This is Andrew's new funny face. We were laying in his bed the other night reading books and singing songs. Then he just wanted me to sing to him. So he cuddled up against me and I was singing and he looked like he was about to fall asleep when he whispered "Mommy, Mommy." I said "What honey?" Then he said "Yook at this!" and made the face up above. We were both laughing so hard! He is just so silly sometimes. I believe he got his goofiness from his Daddy. ;-) (I supposed a little of it is from me too. )

A volcano!!!

Ever since Andrew watched a little Einstein's video that had a volcano in it he has been obsessed with them. Everytime we pass a little hill or mountain he yells "Look a volcano! Watch out it's gonna blow!" So we needed a little summertime project to keep us busy. I'm not sure who had more fun making the landscape and building the volcano. Me, Blake or Andrew. Here are some pics of our creation. :-)

Cupcakes for my MONKEY...

Andrew and I had a bake day yesterday. I saw these adorable Monkey Cupcakes on a blog and just had to make them. Andrew had fun putting the funny faces together and of course eating them too! Here are some pics of my little baker... You can find the recipe/instructions here.

4th of July - Part 2

Here are some more great pictures from our celebration on 4th of July in California!

The birthday boys...

The whole gang getting ready for fireworks!

Andrew did not enjoy the fireworks. The sound was too loud for him. He's really sensitive to sound and after a long day of swimming and playing he was really not liking all the noise. My sister tried talking him into it and just when she had him convinced a super loud firework went off. Well that was the end of that. Inside I went with my baby. :-) So the rest of the photos were taken by my sissy and cousin Marianne.
