Animals in Art

Bradley recently had an art class at the Art Museum and we went around looking at all the animal art and then drew some of our own.

The funniest part of the whole thing was at the beginning the kids had to draw their favorite animal.  Of the 12 kids, there was 8 dogs, 3 cats, and 1 octopus – want to guess who drew the octopus??!!

Swimming lessons

The pictures didn’t come out very good, but we wanted to document your first swimming lessons.  Deric is a water animal and was all too happy to go under water and swim around.  Bradley is a little more hesitant but still did great and was rewarded with a chocolate shake on the ride home.

The Band

Not sure if I’d call it music, but the boys can certainly make a lot of noise.  I guess it is music to our ears anyway.

Mommy and Deric

On opposite ends of the spectrum – wide awake and fast asleep.

The Big Red Chair

Deric thought he was finally big enough to tackle the big red chair, but Big Brother Bradley had to step in and help.

Let go of my foot Dad, I can do this!

Spidey stealing blueberries

We wondered where all our blueberries got to – turns out Spider-Man ate them all!

Trick or Treat

The day has finally arrived.

To show how big this day is on our street, let’s start off with a view from our front porch.

Halloween School Parade

Deric slept through the entire thing.

Bradley was the only kid in the entire school that had a treat bag with him – not sure if we’re proud of that yet or not.

One more belly time

Deric’s days of belly time are (somewhat sadly) rapidly drawing to a close, so Bradley wanted to make sure he had a part of it.
