I'm getting old.

 
By Mike at June 6, 2012 - 20:05

May flew by and we're already well into June. We've definitely been able to keep ourselves busy. In May my little sister graduated from high school. We made the trip down to Wilburton to watch her graduate and hear her valedictorian speech. She's definitely a grade whore, and I'm super proud of her and what she's accomplished so far. The boys had a fun time playing with the cousins. Below are some pics from the trip:

My mom thought looking into the lens would mean I could capture her soul with my shutter. Either that or she was afraid she'd start crying if she looked into the camera... I'm not sure which. :-)

One proud daddio

They know how to pose for the camera.

I was getting attacked by screaming monsters. It was terrifying.

Madison showing us her piano playing skills.

The party gets pretty wild when all the cousins get together.

We also finally made the trip down to the Sam Noble Museum down in Norman. The boys had a good time, but their favorite part might have just been break dancing on the floor. Who needs to look at dinosaur bones when you can roll around on the floor like crazy people??

Standing in front of the biggest dinosaur skull there is. You can tell how impressed they are.

Look out behind you!

Eli and Mommy are not too concerned about dead dinosaurs.

Time for some break dancing!

We know how to break it down...

We could't leave Norman without a trip to Rusty's Frozen Custard! I think this was the boys first trip to Rusty's. Eli was more than willing to share his topping with you...

First you take a big ol bite.

Then you spit out the toppings after sucking off the custard.

Then you share! Gummy bears for everyone!

Thanks Eli, but I'll pass... I also turned 29 in the month of May. I feel 43... I feel old.

April was... AWESOME!

 
By Mike at April 30, 2012 - 21:37

April has been a busy month. We started the month celebrating Easter and Alumni weekend and ended it with a quick trip to the Great Wolf Lodge. Everything in between was just a blur...

The Easter weekend in Wilburton was good times. The boys love all things Easter, so they loved the nonstop egg dying and easter egg hunting action. Charlene and I made our debut in the Alumni softball game. We didn't manage to help the odds end their 3 year losing streak, but we tried to keep it competitive. Here are a few pics from our trip to Wilburville:

Our children smile pretty for the camera...

Charlene has some good photography skillz.

Careful... careful...

Now we eat ALL the eggs, right? I think he put away at least four eggs in one sitting. I bet you can't guess what the next poop smelled like...

We took the boys to the Great Wolf Lodge for a mini vacation. It was good to get away and we had an awesome time. When we got there, Eli walked up to the window where he could see the waterpark and said "AWESOME!". Then everything about everything for the rest of the trip was "AWESOME!". The boys would have slept on the water slides if we would have let them. Here's a few pics from the trip:

Eli was ready to go!

Goggles were a necessity at all times on this trip.

We were so excited about slides!

They have grown just a little since last time.

We were so tired by the time story time rolled around, our eyes were rolling into the back of our heads.

There's a lot more Easter and Wolf Lodge pics in the April 2012 album.

Warm weather couldn't get here fast enough.

Making it through a winter with two small boys in your house is no easy task. They destroy everything. We had to turn our guest bedroom into a "play room" in an attempt to isolate the damage. One of the energy burners in the play room is a sweet trampoline that Beau got for his bday from his good friend Piper. It makes ridiculous noises every time you jump on it, so the boys love jumping on it. Too bad it gets really annoying after a few minutes for anybody having to listen. It does make for some awesome pics though...

The boys only got to enjoy one snow day this year, and it barely lasted long enough to make a snow mickey.

If the temps ever got above 50, I usually forced us to play outside. We had a few chilly days at the playground, but I think Spring is officially here now.

Beau started playing soccer a few weeks ago. He can kick and throw like a beast, and he loves going to practices, but his performance in games has been a little.... what's the right word... sad. He's getting better though. He had a hard time getting past everybody not taking turns to kick the ball, so he mostly just stood there and hoped that the ball would come to him.

Here's Eli kicking back and enjoying one of Beau's soccer games. Eli is really sad that he's not old enough to play yet. Maybe Beau's team will not have enough players one of these days and Eli can sub in.

Eli has also been practicing tball at the house. I uploaded some video of him in action:

Santa brought Beau a kid camera for Christmas, and I now have about 400 awesome kid made videos.

These crazy children crack me up...
