So last blog I quickly caught everyone up on the summer so now lets start fall before Thanksgiving gets here and I am really behind.
Life around here lately has been somewhat crazy. Maybe I am exaggerating just a little but at least for me its been crazy. The kids are just all about momma, which I love, but man I'm wore out by the end of the day. Hamp started last week with this awkward tantrum that Scott and I have never seen before. SS was not one that just threw a tantrum for no reason but Hamp had his first last week....and thankfully it was when Scott was home for lunch. Maybe boys and girls are different but there is no satisfying him when this happens. Needless to say he had 2 of those today. One at the park ..great right... and the other this afternoon when he got up from a nap! I really have to just let him cry and scream and go pretty much crazy before he will calm down. The problem comes in when he is having his moment and SS also wants mommas attention. I remind them ALL day I am one person with only 2 legs so they each get one!! At least 5 times a day I say "Ya'll what does Bob and Larry (veggie tales) say about sharing." SS will so kindly say "we need to share." Not that this makes a magic light bulb go off in their head and they instantly share mommy but oh well it makes me feel better to throw a little "jesus" in the mix!!
So off my soap box lets move on to how our fall started!
AT THE ZOO!
Scott and I have been wanting to take the kids for a while and finally found a good day to go. We had a blast and the kids loved it!
They loved seeing all the animals and Hamp especially loved feeding the giraffes. SS would not have any part in it. Scott bought some lettuce to feed them and Hamp would say "more daddy more." He had no fear!
Together the kids had a blast milking the cow. They had a bucket of water and you could sit at the wooden cow and pretend. Hamp found the bucket of water much more exciting...GROSS!!
We had wonderful family time and the kids still talk about the different animals they saw!
Here are a few pics from the day.
Hamp is looking at the penguins in this PRECIOUS pic!
Admiring the fish!
Can you tell Hamp is getting tired!
They loved the carousel...they wanted to ride over and over again!
