Belly Time

Deric is getting awfully close to being able to roll over and his big brother is always there to cheer him on!

Pasta follow-up

You didn’t think we would just show you making the pasta did you??

Pasta Time!!

We began the process of letting Bradley in on a few secrets from the Old Country.  And yes, they had food processors in the Old Country.

Need to put some flour down so the pasta doesn’t stick to the table.

img_2968

Need to knead the dough just a bit – little heavy on the flour you may notice.

Perfect, ready for rolling.

Second pass – Bradley liked to change rolling direction about 1/2 way through the pass, so we had a bunch of very small strands.

He had to smell each and every pass, not sure where that came from.

Actually cutting the strands here.

Success!

Mom and her boys

I know we have multiple posts with essentially this same name, but here’s another one and I’m sure there will be many more.

Roboworld

Bradley is totally into robots so when Roboworld came to town, we made plans to check it out.  It is so tough to get many pictures with both kids, but we got a good one here of Mommy teaching Bradley about the great C-3PO.

Another Kernan Party

Here’s a long post from our visit to NJ where we stayed with Mommy’s Uncle Mike for a party at his camp for Bridget and Will’s graduation and Katie’s entrance into high school.  Thanks so much for the hospitality, we felt perfectly at home and had a great time as usual.  One of the best compliments we could ever get was said many times over the weekend – “you two certainly make beautiful kids.”

Our arrival – Uncle Mike’s driveway is bigger than our entire yard!

Before the party, Bradley and Katie put the finishing touches on Aunt Sharon’s cool video of their kids’ lives.

Bradley chillin on the beach with Mommy.

party12

Uncle Mike got Deric to smile a lot – I guess after five kids he knows a few tricks.

party9

Bradley had to take Mike to school on their Wii soccer game – why isn’t Bradley’s controller plugged in????

party13

Bridget and Will joined the party to cheer Bradley on – he didn’t even have to watch the screen.

Playing Hooky

This is a first for us here – a post with no kids in it!!  Mommy & Daddy played hooky one day while you were both in daycare and we went fishing on Daddy’s boat.  Daddy caught a few nice bass and Mommy decided to just get some sun and read and relax.
