On Monday the Kawaharas came over for a visit.  We had some fun out in the sun, but perhaps the most entertaining part of the entire visit was when they were getting ready to leave.  Avery got on her coat, got on her backpack, and the decided to give each of the boys a series of hugs.  The boys rarely sit still for more than 2.7 seconds, but when she started making her rounds they all were frozen.  Matthew sat on my lap the entire time, Lucas gave her dirty looks the entire time (it was hilarious, he wanted no part in it), and Nathan could not get enough!

Here is Nathan & Avery holding hands...adorable!

Saying their goodbyes...

And one last hug (there were quite a few before this one too)

Thanks again for the visit Kawaharas...maybe next time we will make it to cow-town...or maybe not hahaha!

Today my 4 boys and I went on a road trip to Edmonton.  We needed some things from ikea, and have been wanting to take the boys to Galaxyland so off we went!
(when I went to take my first picture of the day I realized that I forgot to put the charged battery back into the iphone pictures is all we got today!)

Here is Nathan on the way up...just reading a book, no big thing!

After Ikea we stopped at Harveys to grab lunch...the boys each ate their entire burger, I guess they love it as much as their mom and dad!

We got to the mall and found the playpark...I wasn't quite sure what to expect.  I remember playing there as a kid, but was not sure if it was as good as I was!

Here are all of our shoes in one of the little cubbies...we could have spread them out though since we pretty much had the place to ourselves!

Playing in the ball pit. (they actually had a machine attached to the ball pits that took balls out from the bottom, cleaned them, and then returned them to the pit...genius!)

On the go!!!  This was the last picture I got in the playpark because we were on the run the entire time we were in there, by the time we left all 5 of us were overheated!

We decided to let the boys try one of the kiddie rides...they were not fans of all.  They actually had to stop the ride to let us off.  Once we got off we experienced the biggest public fit to date, not the funnest part of our day but we did get through it.  I am sure it won't be the last!

The boys (and I) slept most of the way home...and then Nate and Daddy had a little rest once we unloaded.  And when I say little I mean little, probably 27 cat-like reflexes allowed me to get this cute picture :)

We set-up some of our stuff tonight...and I am loving it.  I feel like we have "reclaimed" part of our house back...I hope it lasts :)

Easter 2011

Well Easter has come and we still have A TON of snow! So when we were outside this morning we spread it out around the yard so it will melt a little faster, the boys are pretty good helpers at this job!

A picture of Bones for John, I am sure he is missing her!

Matthew peeking at his brothers as they work on the pile of snow.

All three put to work! Before we know it we will never have to shovel again :)

Then Aunty came over and brought the boys each an easter basket with lots of fun and yummy things in them!

Checking out their goodies!

Matthew LOVED the bubbles!  He pretty much squealed the entire time we had them out!

Lucas and some bubbles!

Then I put out some eggs for the boys to collect.  At first they did a fantastic job, picking up the eggs, and putting them into their buckets...

Then they decided it was more fun to throw them into the mud instead...Luc ended up in the mud...

And so did Matthew.  Matthew's tumble was actually more into a full puddle of mud and we were all laughing so hard that I didn't manage to get a picture.

Here is how our egg hunt ended...

The boys each got a new iphone (toy version), and they are pretty impressed with them!
Lucas figuring out all the things he could do with the phone!

"who is this???"

Nathan trying to listen...might be easier if he unfolded his ear! hahaha

Stroller Time!

A couple of weeks ago the fellas each got a stroller.  They LOVE pushing them around...usually empty.  But today the boys loaded some babies into their strollers and got busy!
This is the closest I got to getting all of the boys and the babies in one picture...right as the pic was being taken Lucas bent down (in blue today), and Matthew leaned back (in orange) close :)

Lucas pushing bear around.

Nater and the frog!

Matthew and the pup!



Luc taking care of two babies!

Nate giving the frog some snuggles!

Theses fellas will make great daddies one day!
