We're finally enjoying some warmer weather. Today was as high as 58. There's still a little bit of snow holding on in places that had huge snow piles but it's finally starting to look like spring with flowers starting to pop out of the ground.
With warmer weather comes more adventures. We went to Middlebury to celebrate Grandma Stephens' birthday two weeks ago. Ben and Sam were more interested in watching the restaurant's fish tank than eating especially since it had a castle in it. Ben was asking which fish was the knight and which was the horse. His imagination continues to grow.
Sam is moving out of footy pjs and into big boy jammies. Had to take a picture since he's growing so fast!
The boys were happy to go to the zoo for the first time in 2014.
Sam is starting to LOVE to read books like his big brother. I love to see him on his tummy or when he sits down in your lap with a book. His current favorite it "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom". Sam will go around the house hopping and saying "BOOM BOOM".
This picture of Sam and Dave was actually taken by Ben. He's doing a good job of taking pictures.
Now for the exciting news....Dave finally got his kayak!
Ben and Sam were so excited to see the new "boat".
Sam climbed in as soon as he saw it. This boy loves outside.
Sam also loves cake and making a mess. He currently puts all of his food in his hair or on his face with almost every meal.
So we take lots of baths. Ben requested that I take a picture of them in the bath when Sam sat on his lap. These boys really love each other.
They also really love to wrestle. No doubt that we are raising two boys here.
Sam is the champion!
Back to the boat. Dave decided to take his kayak out for it's inaugural voyage to Pinhook Park in South Bend. While Dave was trying out the kayak, Ben and Sam played at the playground.
Sam wanted to chase the geese or "quacks".
The boys loved going out on the kayak with Daddy.
Sam was so sad when we wouldn't let him in with Ben. He kept crying "Dadda, Bubba, wa wa, boat".
We weren't far from the South Bend airport so there were a few low flying planes overhead while we were at the park. Here is Ben pretending to be a plane while Dave and Sam were kayaking.
