July is flyin' by!

Just another day at the races with our Dad!
Annelise sitting poolside at her playdate with the Fraiser bunch!
He does this a lot. . . sleep!
Living on the edge!
We're certain he's going to run off and join the circus one day!
My brown eyed boy!
No picture I take looks like him to me but at least you can see his bright blue eyes here.
Calling my Daddy!
Here it is the middle of July already! Can't report much but more of the normal activities. You guessed it. . . playdates, riding of something with a motor, and friends over for food! We were at the race track a couple days this week and Daddy even brought home a second place finish! Not too shabby for a man who hasn't been riding too much lately or sleeping due to a new family member! We were quite proud and the kids enjoyed their rides around the track on the mini three wheeler and dirtbike. Motocross will hopefully be something we can all do together one day as a family. We all love being together and the dirtbikes are great camping, trail riding, racing, or just taking a little zip around the yard on. So far both the twins light up when they see Daddy start the engine and quickly run for their helmets. Who knows, we may be raising the future Ricky Charmichael?!?
We had a fun swimming playdate today with Andrea Fraiser and her family to start off Brayton's three week birthday. It was pretty cute that her daughter ,Ashton, didn't remember the twins being boy/girl twins so when she saw them today she was a little disappointed that they didn't look alike. She had to ask "Mom, where are the twins?" At least she was thrilled with the fact that Brayton is still so small and she was in baby heaven with him. I must say though, taking three children swimming is not for the weak at heart! It was a challenge trying to get the twins in the water with their life vests, the baby kept in shade, happy and fed, and all the while making sure no swim diaper had a blow out! The twins snacked more than they swam but who am I to say what a good time is to them? Food is the way to their hearts for sure!
I also must add. . . .one night I turned on the light to find the first mouse of my entire life in my house! For real!!!! I am still freaked out and there are traps everywhere there cannot be little hands. I'm on a mission! Sorry to everyone who reads this and is shocked and horrified that I am trying to kill them. . . but I am!
Another mission is tree trimming! I am a little less than half done and with any luck I will tackle the rest tomorrow and the pruning shears can be hung up for another month or two. YEAH!
Lastly, the baby is doing fabulous! Growing like a weed and the experience of having a full term baby is just so different. No worries about maintaining body temp, less germ worries, you don't have to watch weight like a hawk, you can simply throw the little critter into your life and keep running! He is a cuddly baby and loves to curl up in my arms. He is an easy baby, unless you make him super gassy by eating broccoli and then of course you can expect to stay up all night with him which is what we learned last night! :) Seriously, he fits us like a glove and doesn't even mind the twins towering over him or patting him whenever they need a little baby fix. Life is great and why shouldn't it be? We have three amazing, healthy, happy, and loving children.
