Rock Climbing

The Children's Museum has a rock wall on the top floor that kids can climb by appointment only.  There are only so many appointments available per day and at each of our previous visits this summer they'd stopped giving out appointments by the time we reached that floor.  So this time I told Travis to remind me as soon as we walked in and I'd go up and make an appointment.  Our cousins were with us, so Morgan and McKenzie also gave it a try.  Cole had to sit out because it was 6 yrs and older only.

So proud when he reached the top!!!

Cole is 5!

Cole's great love these days is FOOTBALL!  So it was no surprise that he wanted to have a football themed birthday party.  Since we were new to the area, we just had a backyard party and invited some neighborhood kids they'd made friends with.
As always, I was up late making his cake...but as always, it was worth it to see his reaction early in the morning when he saw it!
Per request, a football stadium with a Cowboys Star on the field.

I ordered the little players from a kit, but my little fan decided he'd like them to be painted to look like the Cowboys vs. the Colts, so I did some magic with blue and white paint pens.

A mad dive for the candy!  Get out of the way Shayne!

Lemonade Stand

Shayne helped the boys set up a lemonade stand one hot Saturday morning.  Our new friend Owen pitched in and I think it lasted just over an hour before they all got too hot and/or lost interest. 

Total earnings:  $1.50 each

My boys at 6 mos.

After having Grant's 6 month portrait made, I thought it would be fun to do a composite of all three boys at the same can tell they are all brothers:
