It's been really nice outside and we've been spending a lot of time in our backyard.  Thank the Lord for our home! The boys have been great and challenging.  I guess that's how it goes with raising kids! I came across the above photo of Liam from last year as I was going through old photos. He is growing up so fast! Where does the time go?

Here's a couple of photos I captured of the boys during their few moments indoors last week.
Oh gosh, they are so sweet.  I sure do love them.  Yesterday was a busy day for the family. We had a birthday party, washed the car, played lots of basketball, went on a bike ride to the track (only to have our plans thwarted by a flat tire on the jogger and Jude's bicycle chain coming off!)

Jude's allergies are giving him a really tough time right now with swollen eyes, lots of sneezing and a drippy nose. Liam was plagued with lots of falls yesterday. He's a brute, but clumsy. To start the day, he fell off our back patio right onto his head (face/head first). At the birthday party he wanted so badly to play with the big kids and busted his lip open while playing basketball. Blood was everywhere and all he cared about was getting back on the court. Then he fell off a scooter right onto the back of his head - bonk!  Poor little guy; he had a rough day. But, we ended the day strong with lots of sliding in the backyard, showers and a pancake dinner with eggs and bacon followed up with some bowling.  It must have been a successful day because Jude went to bed at 8:00 and didn't wake up til 8:00. Wahoo! I guess that's what it takes these days to wear this guy out. Lord, give me strength and energy please!

From no sleep as an infant to no rest as a toddler - Liam says 'look out world!'
I'll be praying for Jude's allergies ;(
What a great season, both weather and the times you are having together!
