What’s going on?


On the weekend, the boys played a game they invented while we watched 2 movies (yeah, they really don't have any attention span for watching movies. Sean was better than Mack at sitting down & watching, but he got quite distracted numerous times by Mack who wanted to play everything else, do other things, besides sitting quietly to watch the movie. We watched both Despicable Me & Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Despicable Me was really cute, had some great laughs, but Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was not as great, but I wanted to see how the story went, so I sat through the entire thing (and got to knit too!) Each movie was about 1 hour and 25 minutes long, so it wasn't that bad at all. It was actually Sean who demanded that we watch both movies in one sitting.

Speaking of movies, Jamie & I went on a double date last week with some friends to see Thor. While I am a fan of superhero movies, I totally enjoyed watching Chris Hemsworth as Thor! His Australian accent just makes me melt! I cannot wait to go see Xmen: First Class, amongst other superhero movies that are coming out this summer. There is a slew of superhero movies coming out.


Yesterday I rode my bike for the first time this summer, to pick up Sean & Mack from daycare, and on the way home had all 3 kids in the buggy. At first it was a bit of a challenge, but I think I've got it all under control. The boys really enjoyed it. It was Quentin's first bike ride. (He's not tall enough yet, so I had to strap him into the booster seat first, then into the buggy! At least he's double protected!)


Caught Mack in a well needed nap on the weekend (we're lucky if either Sean or Mack take a quick nap). Doesn't he look so cute when sleeping? Mack is totally our "bug" child. While Sean likes to pick up ants off the ground, he's not much for the "grosser" bugs. Mack on the other hand... will play with any bug. (Above he's totally engrossed in checking out a caterpillar).


We've been enjoying this gorgeous weather with some friends. Finally - sunshine!
We've been going for long walks & playing in the park.


Quentin turned SIX (!) months old yesterday. I cannot believe it.
Today, he's 26 weeks old.
At 6 months old he's loving sweet potato and banana too.


And Mr. Sean (whom I caught in a picture taking mood this evening) is 230 weeks old.

Today’s Short Link Love:

Meatballs is a fave here as well. Both boys would sit and watch that one over and over again. Cole is crazy about bugs too, lately he's been collecting slugs. ewww!!

Love the knitting needle bracelets, I have a metal on like that but never saw the plastic ones!

Yup, I agree with g-girl, I really liked Meatballs :) Despicable me was awesome too, have you seen Gnomeo and Juliet yet?

Lovely weather. Glad you got to get some fresh air. I loved Despicable Me. I'm going to see Kung Fu Panda 2 tomorrow.
