Getting warmer, getting colder

To set the scene- Ben is wandering around the house blindfolded...
Ethan: getting warmer, getting warmer, getting warmer, getting warmer (each time the pitch and excitement gets higher)
Ethan : getting colder (sadness in his voice)

Me: do you two even know what getting warmer and colder means?

Boys: no!

The things they mimic off tv is too funny

Swimming from August

This is a video of boys swimming at the local pool back in August!

Pirate Party

A couple of months ago (yes, I’m slack) the boys went to a pirate and princess party. It was for their friend Chloe’s 5th birthday. They dressed up as pirates, and had a great time!


Park and Beach Pics

We have had many trips to the park and once to the beach. We are enjoying this warmer weather. I have been very slack taking some nice photos with my good camera lately. I made the effort the other day, and got some nice pictures at the park.


And a few from the beach. They had a great time at the beach. We dug big holes, and then they had fun trying to wet their poor mummy. They also met a stray dog who was keen for a game of fetch. It was a gorgeous dog the boys played gently with him.

Ben is wearing his new headband. It helps secure the ear plug in his ears. He has to wear ear plugs when ever his ears might get wet because of his grommets. He is very good about it, and so far hasn’t complained about it. He chose this favourite colour green!

Max Brenner chocolate shop

Last week we went to a chocolate shop for a special treat! It was very naughty, and very yummy!

The 4 of us shared a fondue plate - and we could hardly eat it all. We had strawberries, banana, marshmallows and banana bread to dip into chocolate. Yummmm
We have never done this with the boys before. They thought it was great, and made a wonderful chocolate mess!

Crazy sleeper

Ben and Ethan still don't sleep the "right" way in the bed. We check them every night before we go to bed, and often find them asleep, something like this.
