SpLiSh SpLaSh!

Splish splash... every afternoon this past week Tyler & Harper have helped Mommy water the plants then they get a little playtime afterwards. Its been 80 & hot so this is the perfect afternoon activity. Seems like they have replaced the need for a sprinkler....

Splish... Splash!







Splish... Splash!

If you can't tell who is who in the photos... we will give you a hint. Harper carries around Coco (her doll) non stop these days. Coco is rarely put down except when Harper puts her "night night" and tucks her in with a blanket & rests her on a pillow. What a little mom!

Beach Bums

We are back from the beach... sun-kissed & still a little sandy! The girls LOVED it. The last time we were at Figure 8 the girls were not crawling yet so it was a whole new experience for Tyler & Harper and their exhausted parents. Gone are the days of sitting & reading on the beach. Once their toes hit the sand they were off... running in the big "sandbox", splashing in the ocean & chasing birds. We are all looking forward to many trips back over the summer!

In the Backyard...

Just about every day you can find us playing in the backyard. It is like a whole new world to the girls and we all just love taking in the fresh air, seeing the birds flying around and looking up and pointing to trees.  Here are a few pictures from an afternoon outside...

She is saying "cold"... brrr ice!



Taking all of the ice out of the cooler... 
not exactly what Dad had in mind!

Today we are also wishing Grumpa a very happy birthday!

Fun at the Festival

We had a beautiful spring weekend so we took advantage of the perfect weather & spent most of the weekend outdoors!



Grandmother Honey kept the girls for a few days to give Mom a nice break... when they got back to town there was a festival going on so we all went to check it out. The girls walked around clapping their hands (which means they liked it- a lot!)

Tyler loves bouncing

Teeth Brushing!

Tyler & Harper finally have enough teeth to brush. 
They are up to 6 teeth each (4 on top, 2 on bottom) 
which I am told is not a lot for 16 months, 
but still enough to brush. 
I think the girls just liked the taste of the fruit toothpaste, 
but either way this is now part of our bedtime routine.

Here is some very exciting (not really) video footage of the big event!!!

Hugs & Kisses

The girls are so into each other these days! It is adorable. They are best buddies & play together all of the time. Recently they have started hugging & kissing. This prompts big smiles & giggles while proud parents watch from across the room. Here are some shots from today.

Tyler gives Harper a big hug

Harper loves it!
They are naked because we stripped them down after dinner.
Growing up but still very messy eaters!

Harper goes in for a kiss from Ty Ty.
Tyler is sitting in the "timeout" chair.
Discipline has started!

And just so you know our kiddos aren't always naked,
here are some shots from earlier in the day...

Our nature child
We jokingly call her our "Hippie"
She is happiest playing with rocks, 
digging in the dirt and looking at trees.

Our headstrong girl
Moments after this she made her way up the stairs 
and closed the door trying to lock out mommy & sissy! 

Tyler & Harper playing with Sophia.
These 3 are often mistaken for triplets!

Easter 2009

The Easter Bunny has come and gone but the girls have baskets full of eggs & treats and some great memories from their 2nd Easter. Tyler and Harper went to 3 Egg Hunts and saw the Easter Bunny twice. The Spring weather is finally here to stay and the girls could not have had a better Easter. Below are a few pictures from Easter Day and if you want to see more you can click here!

She rarely let her basket out of her sight...
 and was seen snatching other kids eggs when they were not looking!

She opened every egg to see what was inside
before she went to get the next one
