Riding on the tire swing at a park with our twin friends Jack and Charlie
Liam was so proud of the numbers he practiced writing at school this week. Way to go Liam!
No, we are not starting a garden yet. Liam and Luke have a facination with growing things so we are trying to grow a few carrots in the backyard. We will see how this goes. All three boys will eat carrots or maybe I should say RANCH dressing with a few carrots.
Liam was literally dying to see what the seeds look like
Everyone helped plant the seeds

We enjoyed a very nice Memorial Day holiday with the bonus of an extra day at home with John. The boys always count how many days that daddy will be home each weekend and they were so excited to hear there would be THREE days at home with Daddy rather than just two. The outdoor pool opened over the weekend and I must say that our initial pool trip was so much easier this year than last. The hours we spent in swimming lessons over the winter paid off in dividends when we took the boys swimming over the weekend. It might actually be a little more relaxing this year. Well, maybe not relaxing to the point of sitting in a chair and reading a book, but at least not as stressful.
We planted some carrot seeds in the backyard and we will see if they actually grow. Luke and Liam are really excited about the idea, but don't seem to understand that this is going to take some time. For the first few days, they checked the carrots each day and Liam cried huge tears when Aiden stepped (or stomped) all over the dirt where the carrots are "growing." The novelty has worn off a bit now so perhaps the carrots will suprise us one day.
