How much fun can we cram into a weekend?

Just to document the weekend (and for Doug and Sonja's enjoyment when they get home), here's what we did today: the boys all got up around 8:30 am and we had pancakes. After everyone was dressed, we headed to Lowe's to buy some sand for the sandbox (it's been "mysteriously" disappearing!). We decided to go with Ethan's suggestion of Sonic for lunch, which of course included the play area. It is a huge sandbox with a climbing jungle gym and slides inside it. The boys LOVED it! Jacob just climbed right up and slid down the big slides, barely any hesitation. He's 20 months old! That kid has guts.

KU played UCLA at 6:05 pm, so we invited a few friends over for the big game. Guys in the basement, girls in the backyard, with the kids. :) My kids were living the dream!

Gabriel's dad was a little concerned about his tree-climbing stunts, but I have other pictures to prove that he's been climbing that tree since last summer.

I guess Jacob's warming up. All I had to say was, "Smile, Jakey!" He's learning from his cheesy cousin.

How can you tell that I ate cheese puffs?!!!

We've been laughing about this all day...I think the reason that Jacob is doing so well here is that he is convinced that Dave is his dad! Now, Doug and Dave ARE identical twins, but surely their own kids know them apart! Or maybe it's just the next best thing. :)

This last picture is so sweet...we were all talking in the kitchen and realized that it had gotten kinda quiet in the house. We realized that Jeremy had taken the boys back in Ethan's bedroom to read books to them!

Sounds like a fun weekend. Lots of little boys running around. Enoch was upset about KU losing, too.
