Lost his first toof

My little boy is growing up! The day I saw that tooth wiggling was one of excitement (for him) and sadness (for ME!!). He certainly is like his mama too because he was very apprehensive about losing his teeth (or change of any kind). He would proclaim that his teeth were "just babies!". When it really started wiggling we tried to coax him into tying a string around it to get it out but he simply was not having it. He eventually just lost it eating a pb&j sandwich. He said it tickled coming out. Guess that's a good thing since he has several more to lose and I think I'll go a little crazy if he reacts this melodramatically with the rest of them! ;-) Like I said....he's just like his mama.

A visit from PapPap

How blessed we are to have a carpenter in the family! PapPap joined us for some work and fun although I'm sure he'd say it was the other way around! The boys really needed a swing set to get some energy out and PapPap sure did come to the rescue. He built an awesome swing set that I'm sure will last for years to come. The boys had a great time "helping" and also enjoyed taking him around to see the Children's museum and the zoo.

Thank you so much for the swing set PapPap!! It's the gift that keeps on giving because it is used EVERY day!

Visiting campers or is it camping visitors?

This past weekend Chris' dad and his wife Shirley came for a visit. They brought their RV up and set up camp at a state park to the north of us. Shirley had lots of fun things for the boys to do. They got to search for fish with their nets, examine bugs under magnifying lenses, and roast marshmallows. Ah, who doesn't love the outdoors? We had a visit from a cheeky little raccoon while we were eating. He got a squirt from the water bottle and was on his way. I wish I had some good pics of that. It was pretty funny. We all enjoyed our time with Granddaddy and Miss Shirley. We look forward to our next exploration with them!

CMOM rocks!

CMOM is Children's Museum of Memphis and boy did we miss having a children's museum around. The boys had such a good time here. I brought them back again yesterday and Ryland squealed with delight when we pulled into the parking lot. They got to play in an actual cockpit of a FedEx plane, "fish", play dress up, drive fire trucks, grocery shop and much more. I can tell this is going to be a place we frequent a LOT!
