Fun at the Park!

The boys love going to the park. They could play for hours and hours, especially the big park by the lake. Here are a few of our recent trips.

This day at the beach was so beautiful. The weather was great, the water wasn't too cold and the kids had a great time!

Have a great weekend!!

Building a truck.

We spent the morning at Oma and Opa's. The boys and Opa built a truck. I'm not sure whose idea it was (I would guess Jakob's). The boys sure love using tools and Opa lets them use all his tools.

The end result was a steering wheel that turned (Levi LOVED that) and a back part, just like a real truck. Jakob is now talking about what colors he's going to paint it.

What a fun morning!!!!

Busy Weekend

We had quite a busy weekend. On Saturday, Jakob had his school picnic at the park. All his little friends were there and they played in the grass and on the playground.

Jakob on the climbing wall at the park. He is quite the little climber!

Jake looks like such a big boy on the playground.

Saturday after dinner we went to an open (dirt) field by our house and the boys flew their kite.

They both tried holding the string.

Jakob letting the kite go into the air.

Levi is riding his "birthday bike" so well. He is getting faster and better at steering everyday.

My Guitars

I've had some requests to show off my latest purchase, so how can I say no? My new guitar is a Fender Highway One Texas Telecaster, with the 2-tone sunburst finish.

We just finished our basement in our new house, and Amy allowed me to have one room that I could do pretty much anything I wanted, so I hung my guitars on the wall.

Science Experiments

I bought Jakob a package of 'Science Make and Do' cards. While Levi is sleeping Jakob needs something to keep himself busy. So, every day he picks one and we experiment.

The first picture is a green erupting volcano.

The second picture is a marshmallow and straw structure.
Jakob thought they were both pretty cool.

We kinda started landscaping this past weekend. Michael removed the braces beside the sidewalk(they weren't supposed to be there), so I could plant some shrubs and flowers.
Jakob loves working with Michael, when Michael took off his shirt, so did Jakob. He was super cute!!

First Post!!

Our Michaelamy website expired and since it wasn't being updated anyway, we decided to let it go and start a blog instead. I don't know how often this blog will get updated, but I will try my best.
So, here we go....

Here are some pictures from our week:

Levi at the park. Isn't he cute!!

I was trying to take a nice picture of the boys dressed in their Mother's Day outfits.
All giggles instead!

Amy and her boys on Mother's Day.

Jakob and (Uncle) Jordan were playing football and Jakob came in and decided he needed to look like a real football player, Jordan too, of course!!
