On hot days our backyard is sometimes the best option for outside play since it is quite shady there. So this morning Simon, Max and Papa spent some time out there.
The “custom” sandbox is always popular.
Both Simon and Max get busy in a hurry.
Swing out brother.
Without Opa Ron this would likely not be up yet.
Max was going up and down the play set several times.
Simon also wanted to climb and slide.
Simon and Max are growing up crazy fast and they surprise us every day with their knowledge and newly acquired skills.
Today they ate a banana by themselves for the first time.
They also do a great job eating from plates very independently.
They both tend to eat the fruit first.
And Simon is a much faster eater.
Today they had a special desert that was a Hit.
Simon and Max especially enjoy raspberries, and it appears that has to do that they can make them finger berries. Yum.
Simon and Max have already left their marks on the new toddler table set with crayons and food. This afternoon they enjoyed some cheese and a banana at that table during snack time and here is a small clip taken during that time.
Max was already out of his crib and his sleep sack after today’s nap, but Simon still in it and they reached out to each other – with their lips. Soon after though, there was toy thievery and other little fights.
The boys now have their own table, but this one is only for snacks. All other meals will be in the high chairs.
The boys are very glad that mama came home from work.
