March Brother Activities

They love to be the cord managers when the lawn is being mowed and they are really good at it.

They found one of our phones and figured out how to take a “selfie”

These bath time buddies are getting so big in their hooded towels

When the car wash line was too long they were both more than happy to help out with washing it at home.

Both boys still love the stroller.  Nicholas insists on getting it out to walk to the mailbox just so he can hold on to the side.  Cooper more often than not insists on getting in it to get pushed to the mailboxes, but sometimes he will do the pushing too.

Finally, my picture of shame.  In almost 4 years this had not happened, but this month I washed a diaper in the washing machine 🙁  It was amazing how the gel balls could get everywhere, both inside and out of every single piece of the kid laundry that was in there.  Hours of scrapping clothes and the washer and finding these gel balls everywhere, a lesson was definitely learned.

Easter Bunny Ears

Perhaps those years of “creative” pictures dressing up the kids in silly ways is starting to rub off.  Nicholas was pretty excited to be a diapered bunny.

I caught Cooper on the camera during his rest time trying on some bunny ears too.  They must have secretly liked it when we did it in the past 🙂

Nicholas was into the egg hunt this year.

Cooper stepped it up a notch using a magnifying glass to ensure every spot was investigated during his egg hunt.

First Peep was a hit, thanks Nana and Pop-pop.

Nana and Pop-Pop Visit

Nana and Pop-pop came to visit and Nicholas got to show them around his toddler group.  They also coordinated nicely in their green shirts for St. Patrick’s Day.

It was an extra special day because it was teddy bear picnic day at school for snack time.

Nicholas loved getting a shoe assist from Pop-pop

They were able to enjoy some time with Daddy during a flight to Friday Harbor and at a beer festival.

Nana showed the boys a real cool science experiment where changing the water color changed the carnation color.

Visiting Nene

Sunshine, family and baseball, all amazing reasons to visit Nene in Goodyear for spring training.  Rob and Cooper traveled to a nearby town to see the Mariners play.  Cooper was over the moon getting to watch baseball and have Daddy time!

Nicholas loved having craft time with Nene.

We were able to all enjoy a spring training game in Goodyear.  The boys got their first real baseballs from Nene and LOVE playing with them.

Nene found these sweaters that were made by my Grandma for me and my sister so we wanted to capture the boys in them too.  They were really into the photo shoot and I think the matching skeleton pajamas adds a nice touch 🙂

Nicholas was in heaven at Nene’s house.  The kid LOVES rocks, and rocks were everywhere!  He made up his own greeting routine for the golfers passing by on the golf course in her backyard.  He would lift his shirt and slap his belly.  It was hysterical to watch and the golfers got a kick out of it too.


Family bonfire making smores, one of my very favorite activities.  Thank you for your thoughtfulness and hospitality, Nene!

Sugar Silliness

Just a little bit excited they got to eat an entire chocolate dump truck sucker from Nicholas’ birthday party favors.

The magic wipe.  N really thinks he disappears when he puts this wipe over his face and loves it!

Sock gloves have had a much longer staying power than I ever thought.  It started when we used socks on Ns hands in the winter to keep them warm.  It is now March and Cooper is still going strong in making “sock gloves” part of his regular outfit.
