This Week

Baby loves to read!

Andrew reading his latest book "The Green and the Red"

This week building blanket tents was the best thing ever

Daily reading cuteness!

Everyone helping to make tortillas

Michigan Tortilla (still learning states around here, boys are getting good)!

Nate had to make quick trip into downtown KM, skyline still crazy.

Play pot battle

Andrew helped make PB bars.
And we're starting to use up random food items
like  the very bottom of lots of sprinkle jars.
Andrew thought these were really pretty.

We found Aaron's (and Grandma Sharla's)
favorite ice cream bars for the first time here.
Aaron was very happy and
said that Grandma would be too.

This Week

Amazing deal on discount fruit this week.
All this for about 1.5 USD.
We've never had so much dragon fruit.

Andrew started trying to play more chess/majestic chess lately.

Baby is ready to go!

Rotated the books and the boys read all day long.

Bubble fun

Chess and board games were very popular with everyone this week.

Two games going at once

We got over the plague,
so we had Mother's day chicken dinner, yum!


Boys have been playing with their new dishes a lot.

First they had one box for a counter and a pillow table

Funny lid face

Then the boys made a whole kitchen out of boxes.
(Cooking counter with cabinet below, table, sink, and refrigerator)

Aaron washing dishes in box sink
with tape measure faucet

Table set

Refrigerator with lots of drawers
(like a they are here) and play food in it

Andrew washing dishes

They also went on a picnic

Andrew made a scavenger hunt for everyone

Nate got upcycled (and puke free!) slippers this week

Happy early Father's Day dear!

Then because they are boys the cookware becomes armor

En garde!

And because they are our boys,
they become Beethoven battling other composers when Beethoven's 5th plays.

Happy Anniversary Ben and Nicole!

Aaron and Andrew heard your anniversary was coming up and decided to make you games to celebrate.
Now you are sure not to get bored.;)

Aaron made you lots of games and mazes

Andrew made a very elegant and elaborate Anniversary Tic-Tac-Toe game


Game pieces

We hope you have a great Anniversary Ben and Nicole!
