Lucas turns 4!

Where has the time gone? Jason and I found our camcorder recently... wow!  Are we bad at moving files to our computer, or what?!  We found so many videos of Lucas at 1 and 2 years old... such a baby!  He is growing up way too fast!

Jack, of course, thought he was the one that was supposed to be unwrapping, so we had to pin him down and tickle him :)

An extremely silly Sully mask... the mouth and eye brows move when Lucas talks.  We were all belly laughing at how funny it looked :)

Baby in a Basket

Who needs toys when you can dump all of Mom's stuff out and use her baskets?!

Meeting President Lincoln

A park near our house hosted a Civil War camp and reenactment.  Lucas is only just really starting to grasp the concept of "history,"  but we still tried to briefly explain the Civil War to him.  The boys thought the whole idea of camping at "their" park was the coolest thing in the whole world.  For Jason and I, we saw it all with new eyes as we explained everything to them. What would have been fascinating to us at the surgeon's tent, we had to pass by quickly so the boys wouldn't start crying.  Blankets and pillows on the ground outside looked like an adventure.  We were debating staying for the battle but decided against it when both boys started crying during gun practice.  Oh well... maybe when they're older :)

Lucas and Jackson had a hard enough time adjusting to all of the people in funny clothing, but even I was startled a little bit when "President Lincoln" reached his hand out for mine and bowed over it instead of shaking :).  I felt like I should throw a ball gown on and start dancing!

Apple Picking Fun

We are part of a local MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) group, and occasionally we do play dates.  We were praying and hoping that it didn't rain when we were supposed to tour a nearby farm... the rain held off until right when we were planning on leaving anyway!

The boys had a blast taste-testing different varieties of apples, sipping on apple cider, learning about bee hives, wagon-riding, and apple picking.  We went home and made homemade applesauce.  It was amazing!!!

"Flying" Uncle No-No's Plane

Jason's maternal grandpa "Papa Miller" has been staying with J's parents for the past few weeks while Nana traveled overseas.  J's brother Nolan wanted to show him the plane he owns/flies, and since the boys haven't seen it in about a year, we took them out to see it, too.

Papa M's Fur Baby came with him.  Talk about a dog that is dedicated to her master!

The boys sat in the plane and "flew" with Uncle Nolan.

I had to get photos of Nolan and his baby...

Jack cuddling with Papa M, and G'ama and her Fur Sister...

And a random old car out in the parking lot... :)
