Monkey Joes

Just a few weeks ago, I took the boys to Monkey Joe's.  Preston loves it!  Well, when we got there, they asked me if Ethan was going to play.  I wasn't sure, but let him try it out.  He loved it too!  He had just as much fun as Preston.  Several moms told their children to watch out for Ethan, but when they saw Preston wrestle with Ethan they felt like they were safe.  Preston loves Ethan so much and it's so cute to watch them play together.  Ethan adores Preston!  So sweet!

Pass the Peas Please

Ethan was a picky eater with baby food (he would not eat any veggies), but since now he eats mostly table food, the kid will eat anything!  One night recently he was eating some peas and then decided to take some of Daddy's too!  So cute!

No, we normally wouldn't let our children climb on the table like this, but sometimes it's fun to watch them explore and see what they will do with a little freedom!  We all had fun watching him spread peas all over the table!  He is a handful!  I can't imagine what the toddler years are going to look like!  Good times!

Also, for those of you who haven't seen him, we shaved Ethan's head.  His hair was crazy (and thin, and stringy), so we decided to shave it so maybe it would grow back better.  We like it, but looking at these pics makes me miss his hair.  I don't know what we will do with his hair next, only time will tell!  Hopefully it will grow out and look cute this time, but I am not so sure : )

Happy Birthday Preston!

I can't believe it's been 5 years since Preston was born!  Time flies!  He has been such a blessing in our life and we are so proud of him.  In our family, birthday's are a big deal!  So, on Preston's birthday....
he got to call most of the shots : )!
 This was a movie that he has been wanting for ever!  He was so excited! 
 A chocolate cupcake for breakfast! 
 A movie with mommy!

Jumping, which he loves as you can see!

 Dinner and ice cream at Outback!  He loves the bread there and he also enjoys everyone singing to him!

The next day....
His party at Chuck E. Cheese!
 The cake!  Delish! and so cool with Chuck E. Cheese and Dirtbikes on it!
 A few action pics! 

 So many presents!  Thank you so much!
 Everyone excited to see Chuck E. Cheese!

Tonight we were talking to Preston at dinner and I said, "Preston, you and Daddy will have to get out your box of magic tricks (birthday present from the Riffles) sometime soon and try some of the tricks!"
Preston didn't miss a beat and said,
"Oh, can we make you disappear?" 

I tried not to take offense : ), and then when he started naming other people he could make disappear, I realized it was nothing personal!  Kids are so funny!

We love you Preston, Happy Birthday!
