July Happenings!

Lately we've been trying to keep busy without melting! Weston doesn't seem to notice the heat or humidity, but I can't handle it...ughhh.

Weston LOVES helping Eric mow the lawn

Weston's books were getting a little trashed and starting to overflow the drawer they were in so we decided to get a little bookshelf. Weston and I put it together one night while Eric was gone. I thought it'd be pretty quick and easy, but having the help of a one and half year old makes things a little tricky. Weston LOVED it. I couldn't keep him and his hammer or screw driver away from the shelf, and he had to work on the same screw/nail as me. He spent the next couple days hammering everything...

Making our own fun!

Wonder Lab (Bloomington's smaller version of the children's museum)

A little bored, cute, and trying to get mom's attention..

We've spent a few days at the pool. Weston LOVES the water slides and can't get enough of the water. If you even mention swimming (or bowling) he won't let you forget it. He has exploded with words lately and I'm pretty sure he'll figure out how to say something if he wants it bad enough; which means "bowing" and "swimming" came very quick and easy!

We heard about a petting zoo that was being put on as a fund raiser for autism so we went to check it out. It's a good thing it was for a good cause :)

The lady was trying to convince of that rats are GREAT pets and we should buy one. Weston's face shows exactly what I was thinking.

West was pretty excited about the goose. He loves The Little Red Hen book, and was pretty excited to see a real live goose:

If we go early enough in the morning or late enough at the evening we can still venture out to the park.
Once he found the drinking fountain it was tough to drag him away from it.

He caught some air jumping on the spider web with Cooper-

Weston LOVES his big kid friends "Cooker" and "Uby." We are really going to miss them and their great parents when they leave us this weekend!

Chuck E. Cheese

Mom had to miss out on all the fun at Chuck E. Cheese too, but Daddy and Weston sure had fun with the Williams!

The day didn't end here...After the Zoo and Chuck E. Cheese, Weston and Eric headed off to Cold Stone to meet up with some more friends, the Browns! I guess they know what to do without me:)

Zoo with Grandma

Weston and Daddy had a day out without Mommy- starting with a Zoo trip with Grandma!

Checking out the Gorillas

Weston wasn't quite sure what Daddy meant by "put your arms up" :)

Happy 64th Anniversary Betty and Reed!

Eric's family had a surprise anniversary party for his grandparents and we were so excited that we got to be there. We had such a blast and we LOVE Grandma Betty and Grandpa Reed!

Hanging out-


Tree Swing!


We convinced Weston to try and get Uncle Chase...It didn't turn out great for him:)

I love this picture. It looks like Hannah's just had a great idea and Weston LOVES it!

Playing with the boys...

Weston sure loves his Aunt Cheyenne...He couldn't get enough of her:

At one point he made his way over to Chey and Hailey hanging out an the grass and just plopped himself down with them.
