Child labor laws?

The haircut....

Getting Reagan's haircut used to be quite the ordeal. He just hated it. This has completely changed and now when told he is getting his haircut simply replies, "ah, lollipop?".

Enjoying the reward.

Will need to check the safety rating for 28lbs...

When I asked him why he was still there he said "Cooper jail me". ( Translation: Cooper put him in jail)

Police obsession

Is starting to wear off on his brother...

Cooper still loves his police van, although he only sleeps with it next to his bed 50% of the time. He has had it for well over half his life!

The other day he said to me, "I am not sure I want to be a policeman when I grow up, because I also want to be a daddy." I assured him he could do both!

How quickly they learn

When we got the trampoline last weekend he wouldn't go on it unless he had a hand to hold.

Now he even has karate moves. ;)

Water guns...

We had some more friends over today and Jason brought water guns...

Even though it was 55 and a bit cloudy the kids had fun watering the plants and chasing Jason around. Then the big guns came out...

Oscar the Bear

Reagan was given a teddy bear at school to bring home for the weekend. We are supposed to take pictures and then put them in a book and write about what we did this weekend.

Thought it would be fun to post them here.

Fun with the Turners

One of the great things about the country house is that our friends love it as well. We have even started to have people spend the night, which is a really good way to get some non-kid time with friends. The Turners spent the last two nights with us (and the Edwards are coming tonight!).

Andrew helped us build a trampoline, here we are about half way done.

We tried to get the 4 kids to take a picture together.

Cooper and Reagan make a quick exit...

We went to our new favorite country pub with the Turners. We were lucky to see both a canal boat going through the lock and a hot air balloon taking off.

The boys loved the balloon.
