Potty Time

We've been working on toilet training for a few weeks. He mastered the "pee-pees" pretty quickly. We gave him a jelly belly each time he went and the boy loves sweets. Talking him into doing his "ka-ka's" in the toilet was a little tougher, even when we offered to give him 3 jelly bellies. Tonight we finally made a break through. He ran to the toilet announcing that his ka-kas were coming. And sure enough after a few moments he was taking care of business. After a particularly loud "popper" (also known as a fart). He laughed out loud and said, "That was disgusting!!" When he finished he naturally wanted to look into the toilet to see his accomplishment. He peered into the toilet and said: "Hey, there's snakes in there, and nuts. Yucky snakes and nuts."

Good job Bex!

Boo!

I love that DJ is finally getting big enough to really play with Bex. The back to back pregnancies were tough on me but were totally worth it. Brothers are the best!

WuDoCo Napa

I'm going to go ahead and piggy back on my sister's blog about our trip to Napa with some good friends (and family) from Maui. Why reinvent the wheel right?

Buffalo Fun

Here are the promised photos from our trip up to Buffalo:Bex at the science museum trying on the fur pelts.

Bronson experimenting with the goo that Jayme made for him.

Mama CoCo and baby Damon. Ahh, so cute!

We met up with another old friend from Maui and her family. We went to the Museum of Play with them and the kids had a blast together. So fun!

Jayme took us out to a gorgeous nature preserve.

I think baby Damon is going to be a fisherman one day. The hat really suits him.

Mama and her boys at the nature preserve.

We did a photo shoot with the two babies. This is my favorite shot. That's Jayme back there trying to hold up DJ who can't quite sit on his own at this point.

Ahhh...cute babies at 6 months old.

It was a long road trip, but so much fun! Thanks Buffalo!!

Niagra Falls & Easter

Visiting Niagara Falls has been on the "List of Things to Do While Living on the East Coast" since we moved here. I've always wanted to see it and this spring we finally managed to put things together for a road trip to up state New York. We wanted to go while the spring run-off was in full force and decided Easter weekend would be perfect. It was still pretty chilly in New York in April, but we lucked out and got gorgeous weather the day we went out to see the falls.


I called my brother Billy who is living in Michigan to see if he and his family would be interested in joining us there. When CoCo & Papa Dan heard about the party brewing they hopped on a plane and came out to join in. It was so much fun to get together with the family. I only wish the other 5 siblings could have come too.

We stayed with my very good friend (and former roomie from Maui) Jayme and her husband and sweet baby boy in their spacious house. They were such gracious and fun hosts. They welcomed us with open arms and actually managed to make us feel like we were doing them a favor by staying there. Thanks so much guys. You're the best!!!



Ry with his boys at the falls. I like this picture. :)


We did cross over to Canada while we were there. Billy's son "B" had had enough of the USA and was ready to move north, even if he had to climb the fence to get there. Bex thought it was a good idea and cheered him on.


I love this photo! Billy's two boys with Bex. It was so cute to see them together. Bex followed his big cousin "B" around copying anything that he did.


We rented a house for a couple of days and had an Easter Egg Hunt in the back yard on Easter morning. The boys had a hey-day running from egg to egg. It's so much fun to have a child that's old enough to enjoy the holidays.


CoCo is helping little Fisch find some eggs on Easter morning. Thanks guys for putting in the time and money to make this little vacation happen. We had such a great time!

A Little Catching Up

Pops came to visit and we went to the Building Museum where they let you play with millions of Legos
