A Day at the Park with the boys!

We went to a park in Rocklin yesterday so I could take my neighbors family pictures. We got there a little early so I decided to take more pictures of my boys. They are such good sports about me always taking pictures of them. They are really photogenic though, it makes it really easy. I will say, it is so much easier taking their pictures one on one then in a group. In the group pictures there is always one who is not smiling or is looking the wrong way or something. These are a few of my favorite!

Uncle Mike (Dave's bro) has been here to visit with us for a week. It has been so much fun. The boys adore him, they think he's "the bee's knees" as Mike would say. He really has a way with kids, they just fall for him. He sits and watches the Backyardigans with the boys and then sings the songs all day. He teaches the boys weird phrases to say like, "Chadle homie", (something his Mexican co-workers have taught him). Friday night Dave and I went on a date and Mike babysat all four boys for us for 3 hours! When we got home, the 3 youngest were asleep in bed and Logan was getting in bed. The house was straightened up and he didn't sneak them candy or even chocolate milk while we were gone! How responsible! We were so impressed! The only thing he doesn't do is change diapers, understandable though.
A funny thing about Noah I must share: he's become quite a good little talker now, but he does say things funny sometimes and we all get a kick out of it. He loves the show "The Backyardigans", its a group of animated animals that use their imagination in their backyard to go on big adventures and they sing and dance all the time. Noah refers to them as "the Baggins". We also realized one day that he calls the shower the "shire". So I thought it would be funny to tell him the Backyardigans live in the shower one day and kept trying to get him to say it because it would sound like "the Baggin's live in the shire." For all you Lord of the Rings fans, that might be amusing because the hobbit Frotto and his uncle Bilbo Baggins live in what they referred to as The Shire. We love it!
