It's so fun to watch the kids pretend. Aaron and I just sit back and snicker at them. They whisper, they strategize, they creep and crawl everywhere, and so on. I told Aaron that Landon might be good for the military with all of his sneaky tactics. Their imaginations run wild and I love to be there to watch it all unfold. Even the girls got in on the action - guns and all. The boys don't care. They all get along very well and welcomed everyone to their pack. They play a lot of games, but Call Of Duty was on the list this time.
Once again I was watering the yard and, with their radar at full capacity, the boys came running outside with looks of delight on their faces. "YAY, WATER!!", they shouted. I can't keep them out of my sprinklers! It's fun, I get it. I can't remember how many times I rode my bike past an active sprinkler in my neighborhood when I was a kid. It was A LOT. Puddles? Pretty much the same thing. The things I get worked up over now I remember doing when I was their age. Now I know why my mom would get mad if I would jump in a puddle on our way into a store. "You're going to get dirty!", she said. I am the same way with my two as we make our way into an establishment. At home I couldn't care less, but when we're out play time is supposed to be over. Sorry, Mom. I now feel your pain when it comes to nasty, dirty water and clean clothes and shoes. My boys show no mercy. Sometimes they listen, sometimes they don't. Obviously they didn't listen when I told them to go back inside. There must be something in water that makes kids deaf. Yep, I'm sure that's it. Having said all of that, I love to see them smile and have fun because that's what makes being a kid so great.
I realized that I haven't done too many videos of the boys. Pictures can only tell a little bit of the story. Video says it all. So, without further ado, I present the boys performing, "If You're Happy and You Know It" (their own version).
I am a mom to two spunky little boys and a wife to a wonderful husband. When I retire my camera for the day you can bet I will be spending quality time with my family. Family is everything to us, and capturing those special moments to remember is a very important part of life.
