Hog Wild

As usual our little "alarm clock" woke us up just before 7am this morning. After breakfast we headed to the playground where once again the boys showed a disturbing lack of interest in the actual "toys" on the playground and fascination with the mulch. Go figure.

After a nap we had lunch at Luby's. The boys scarfed down chicken, carrots, green beans, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and watermelon. I really wonder where they put it sometimes. Then as if that wasn't enough we made a quick stop by Costco where they tried the samples of sweet potatoe fries, and cantaloupe. And when it ran it out they carried on like they were starving!

The boys really love melons (cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon) and the cantaloupe were so ripe, juicy, and sweet that we couldn't pass them up. So while the boys took their afternoon nap Kevin put together the picnic table we got for the boys a couple of weeks ago. We set it up on the front patio in the shade. The boys woke up from their nap just in time for snack time. Notice a theme here? They sure do a lot of eating... :) We changed them into swim suits (so we could hose them down afterwards) and put a plate full of cantaloupe in front of them. They went to town. They had juice running down their chins, and dripping everywhere. What a mess! But boy did they enjoy it!

After snacks we broke out some chalk and colored paper and let the boys color a picture. They only tried to eat the chalk once or twice, and other than a few wild and crazy episodes they even managed to keep the chalk primarily on the paper.

And if that wasn't enough fun, after playing inside for a while and shooting some hoops (see video) we took the boys for a walk in their cars to a nearby playground where they played with their cars. Connor showed off his driving skills (okay, so technically he only goes in reverse, and pretty much in circles, but hey at least he is actually pushing his car with his feet!) and practiced getting in and out of the car via the door.

We got home just in time for dinner, a bath, and then bedtime. Wow what a day. And just think we get to do it all over again tomorrow! :)
