It's finally getting HOT!!

Having fun in the pool

Steven's newest garage sale item-every time we go for a walk Steven asks "Mom, can we go to a garage sale?" I guess that is what happens when you live on a budget and only buy your kids toys at garage sales-sorry Steven!!

Steven did a program through the Hilliard rec center called Safety Town. He loved it! For a week he went to 3 hours of class each day where firemen, policemen, etc came and talked about fire safety, crossing the street, poison control, bike safety, pool safety, and on and on! He came home each day with more and more information on what to do when there is a fire, or if a dog is chasing you, and some pretty funny songs too. They had a graduation Friday night-a little over kill-but they seemed to like it.

After Fire day

I love my sandbox!

I am finally starting to talk. If you give me something
I really want, I might say "Thank you!"

June birthdays come and gone!!


Steven had a fun batman/superhero party. Despite the thunderstorm that started about five minutes into the party and lasted until about ten minutes until the end, the kids seemed to have a lot of fun!! He had to have superhero capes, so the kids got to decorate their own princess/hero cape. Steven also helped me make a cool bat pinata!!

I think he was smiling almost the entire time!

My new bike

My favorite aunt came to visit!!

Steven seems to have a special place for Aunt Julie. Maybe it is because she used to not have kids and so she would pay more attention to him, or maybe it is because of "that guy with the motorcycle" he still talks about playing with (aka her husband Clint). Either way, he was so excited for her to come and we had so much fun having her here. Julie and Caden
Steven, Andrew, and Caden

Once he discovered his old baby toys, and the baby occupying them was gone,
Andrew claimed them back for his own!!!

What is this baby doing here??

Aunt Julie even went down in the Submarine with Steven at COSI.

How come my mom never does that??

Steven trying to get Caden to smile-he usually doesn't pay much attention to babies, but he really liked Caden and kept giving him toys(not always wanted) and making him smile!
