Boys will be Boys

We had fun this weekend visiting with our friend Jim and Lacy and their kids.

Life with three boys sure does make you smile often. It is funny how they say the funniest things. Lately when Ryan and Kyle see Brady coming towards them and their cars they yell "fire in the hole" and they grab all their toys and try and get away from Brady. It will be so funny to see how fast they can react because Brady is going to be walking soon.

Brady is now trying to stand without holding on to anything and he has a bruise on each cheek to show for it...I think I told you about the fire place well Brady has found it a few times. I am afraid he is not far away from taking his first steps. It will make us laugh if he walks before he gets his first tooth. That is right he does not have any teeth yet. Kyle had his first tooth at 4 months. Ryan was 6 months and Brady turns 9 months today and has nothing.

Speaking of teeth Kyle lost his 7th tooth Sunday and of course put it under his pillow but we discovered that sometimes the tooth fairy takes Sundays off...kind of like the mail lady. What? the fairy is part of the union you did not know that :).

Okay maybe it is not just the boys that make us laugh Don and I do a pretty good job making each other smile. We started our summer tradition today of Tuesday golf date night. We are both looking forward to spending some time together every Tuesday enjoying a game we both love.
Stephanie is the person who makes date night possible. They boys love her and she loves them. She is graduating next month and will be moving across country to becoming a HS teacher. She has found us a great college student to help us with the boys after she is gone... but we will all miss her!


  1. some time this summer I will have to come out to be a babysitter for a day for you guys. That would be SUPER fun and I would really enjoy it... we shall need to set up a time.
