Baby Boogs is no longer. Little Man is now two. :o( Where did my little (well, big) baby go? It's hard to believe it's all over. No more itty, bitty baby clothes; no more teeny, tiny shoes. No more crib soon, no more high chair soon. Today we took him into church for the first time without a stroller. I need him in the stroller! It's too hard to try to keep track of everything and everybody otherwise! He also went in the two year old class. Yeah! He's back with Jonathan :o). He actually pushed me out of the class, he wanted me to go... Well! I do miss seeing my little dude in back of me in the toddler's class.

He got his first Big Wheel last weekend for his birthday. He has been zooming all around the house on it. So have his sisters ;o9. Today we took it outside. He can't quite get the pedals yet. He also got a JayJay video. He likes it. He's going to be a traveling man with his cars/trucks/construction/planes affinities.

While in search of a special place to take him today, he fell asleep in the car. When we finally got somewhere, he was grumpy, so I held him in my lap. :o) He's usually too busy to do that anymore. :o( At least he likes to read though. That way he'll sit by me :o).

Park Days

We were taking advantage of the warm weather these past few days and exploring different parks, something we've not done much of these past years - I don't know why. My favorite is Crowder off of 10-10. Both the little people's and the big kids' playsets are right there together. We also ventured back to Lake Benson. I haven't been there in a long time! It had been redone last fall, and I had no idea. I like it a lot better now. Before the two playgrounds were separated. Of course, someone wanted to be on each one. We have also tried Bond Park. It's okay to me; a little big to watch 4 go in different directions. This past week we tried the park off Walnut in Cary. Both parts are close together, but apparently it's a teenage hangout after school. We had to share the swings and rocking horse things with them ;oP. There was also a boy there loudly singing the national anthem :o). We found one off Lake Wheeler, but we haven't made it there. The playset looks really cool, but the little people's part is up at the top of the hill, and the other is way down at the bottom. Hmmm... We also tried one off Kaplan and Kent in Raleigh, but they all came home with black stuff that still hasn't come off. 

BTW- Boogie's new word for the day was "sunshine"!

Auto Bell - Homestyle

The girls, Boogs and Daddie washed the Burb today - inside and out. Boy, it needed it! Then Daddie attempted to fix the squeaking brakes on the Honda. Isaac helped him with this, too. They both came in with black hands. Yuck! 

The girls have decided to revamp their "stores". Emi and Erynn are now making soaps. Eli is undecided as of yet. Sam votes for homemade doggy biscuits. Frodo votes for homemade pillows. I vote for stationery or chocolate!
