Arts and Crafts Day

Today we did not have much going on so we decided to have a little arts and crafts day! The boys made little visors. Ben had more fun dumping all the supplies on the floor. Then they did a little painting, mostly when Ben was taking a nap. This gave me a chance to work on some little projects myself. Nate and I painted together, he thought that was so cool! "Mommy paint, Nate paint"

Ben used his brush as a weapon, go figure!

The end result...

We hung several of Nate's paintings on the wall to display
Then we had a picnic in the living room, I had to post these pictures because it looks like they coordinated their eating hahaha

Pools and Parades

Spending some time at our pool in our apartments.....

Ben was not a big fan of his life jacket or the water today for some reason.

Watching the Parade at the Strawberry Festival in Garden Grove.

Nate really like the fire engine. He told us this week he wanted to be a fireman when he grows up. He also let us know that Ben wants to be one too.
Nate enjoyed dancing to all the bands that played in the parade.

The best seat in the house in on your daddy's shoulders!
