Snacking in Bed

Apparently while I was taking a nap (and thought the boys were napping too...) Nathan thought Jonah needed some raisins. I wish I remembered how full the jar was before...

I do NOT look forward to changing this little man's diapers tomorrow!

Brother Poop Shenanigans

Why does motherhood have to involve so much poop? During nap time Nathan decided to take off his poopy diaper and put it in Jonah's bed... And then Jonah thought it would be a good idea to eat it. (Ew!) Luckily he didn't get sick from it, but seriously. Gross.

(And I promise my kids usually have sheets on their beds...)

He was happy because he got a bath out of the whole ordeal. And like I always say, at least he is so dang cute!

Ag Days

Yesterday we went to "Ag Days" at the college, which is a free activity the agricultural department puts on to teach about farming and cows and stuff. It turned out to be so fun!

This little man just hung out in the stroller looking handsome.

I tried to get a picture of the kids by the tractor wheel, but none of them were going to have that...

Ellie and Nathan enjoyed looking at the cows and horses. 

And they thought sitting on the tractors was pretty cool!

Although Nathan was a little worried about how high up he was.

The kids both really liked milking the fake cow. I kept telling Ellie that she was milking a cow, and she kept saying "It's water though, right Mom?" 

After they "milked" for awhile, we went and did some other activities. When we came back around to this cow, Ellie said, "Mom, can I go do the pee again?" Ummm...

There were lots of treats: ice cream, pancakes, homemade French fries, bread and honey (bonus that Uncle Joe was giving out the bread!), and TONS of candy, but the kids' favorite treat by far was the otter pops. Even Jonah sucked his completely dry.

It must have been a successful day because all three of the kids fell asleep on the way home! We will definitely be going back next year!

Sam's Birthday

For Sam's birthday we decided to go on a little hike since it was such a beautiful day. As we went to back out of our driveway, there was this weird sound and the car wouldn't move. We thought we were running over something, but when we got out to look, we saw that Nathan had put a rock in the wheel. Awesome.

And it was pretty big, too!

I didn't get any good pictures from the hike, but the kids had fun running around, and once we got to the top they loved putting their feet in the water.

When we got home, we put the kids down for naps and we took a nap too! How nice! 

When we woke up, we did some yard work. While we were out there Sam said "If anyone had told me when I was younger that I would want to spend my birthday doing yard work, I would have thought they were crazy!"

We took the family out for dinner, and after only one spilled cup of water we were back home and frosting the cake. When I asked Sam a few weeks ago what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday, he said "I want a really rich chocolate cake, like Bruce Boggtrotter." (From the movie Matilda)

I don't think his cake really rivaled Bruce's, but it did the job.

Ellie kept telling me that we had to have hats for Daddy's birthday, so we got hats. And they were pretty cute! 

We did cake, ice cream and presents, and we all went to bed completely sugar-buzzed. Happy Birthday, Sam!

Adding to the Yard

This weekend we decided to take advantage of an awesome sale the greenhouse at BYU-Idaho had and get a few trees and bushes for our yard. The kids had a blast helping Sam get everything planted.

Ellie put some water in the hole before the tree was put in.

She also thought the slug we found was pretty cool. 

And she got to water the tree after it was planted.

Of course they had to get a drink from the hose just like Dad.

Nathan's turn to water a new plant!

I'm so glad it's finally warming up here in Rexburg!
