Fun and Games

One thing I love about little kids is that there is never a dull moment in their eyes--there is always some fun to be found! Here are a few snippets of random, everyday fun.

We had a couple of friends' kids over, and I found it amusing to have 6 kids all lined up, 5 of them playing the piano at once. Quite the raucous noise, but highly entertaining for the kids!

Talmage is still our little artist. He amazes me with his precision!

Here he is right after his big-boy haircut! He looks so grown up!

The boys love to pretend this is their train.

Think he likes his daddy much?

From time to time we visit the pet store and look at all the animals. You'd think we were at the zoo to see how much the boys love it!

Bristle blocks remain one of Talmage's favorite toys. One morning he was playing with them and asked me who gave them to him. I told him a lady in Grammy and Grandpa's ward named Sister Harker gave them to him. He responded, "Oh, yeah." And then he suddenly shouted out, "THANKS, SISTER HARKER!!!!!" He wanted to make sure she could hear him all the way in Utah. :)

Who knew the blinds made such great roads?

Dewberry Farm

We went to Dewberry Farm with some friends! We all had a great time, even though a huge storm started and we had to leave early.

The cow train was one of the highlights. It was so fun!

Wesley LOVED it.

They had a bunch of fun farm-themed toys around the area for the kids to play on.

You can see our storm looming overhead. We did get to enjoy a few hours of good weather, though!

Talmage put his sunglasses on upside down and thought he was pretty cool!

The corn pit was the boys' favorite part. Such a genius idea! It was basically a little shed filled with dry corn kernels and toy tractors.

We just had to make sure Wesley didn't eat the corn. Especially after a mouse ran by and caused quite a stir among the occupants of the corn pit!

Our friend Angela was awesome with the boys! It was so great of her to tell us about the farm and then come along.

This tire swing made into a horse was brilliant!

The rain was just starting to pick up at this point, so sadly the boys didn't get to play on the toys as long as they would have liked.

It was a fantastic little outing! I often feel sad that my kids won't get to have the same farm experiences I grew up with (since my grandpa was a farmer and I have several relatives who farm). Things like this help me feel like they're going back to their roots. :) It was such a fun day!

All too often, we are a house of sleepyheads.

What, don't you sleep with a piano bench resting on your abdomen?
