Wyandotte County Fair

Took the boys to our favorite summer activity. Macen's favorites were the top 2 pictures - the ones with lots of movement involved.

Maddox usually always has a smile on his face but for some reason when he gets on rides, he gets all serious. And he was more interested in what was going on behind him.

Step Right Up! Maddox is 2!

We did a carnival theme for Maddox's birthday party this year. So much fun to plan!

He wasn't as impressed with everyone singing to him as he was on his actual birthday. He had just woke from his nap and wasn't sure what to make of a house full of people.

Instead of a piƱata, we filled balloons with some candy and confetti and each kid got to pop one.

The prize Maddox picked. Haha!

Happy Birthday Maddox!

We added shaving cream to the slide. Between that and water, it was pretty slick. Poor little Maddox went flying off it several times.

It's so hot out, the ground isn't the only thing cracking. Haha! Baby crack, er toddler crack! And what you see here is Maddox helping Macen lose his 2nd tooth. They collided in the sprinkler and Macen started to cry until he realized his tooth had fallen out. Then he frantically searched the grass for it. He kept telling Maddox he was such a good boy helping him lose his tooth, lol.

The Second Half

And it's full again. We dropped James off at the airport yesterday. A great 2 weeks we had with him but it's time for things to get back to normal...for us and him. For a little distraction after the airport, I took the boys to a mirror maze. Pretty fun!

It's fairly small so we got to do it several times. Maddox was very good about walking at first but our second time through he took off running - right into a mirror. There was lots of crying (and laughing from mom). Another time through Macen started throwing himself up against the mirrors to make Maddox laugh. He mistook an open space for a mirror and ended up flinging himself to the ground. All 3 of us got a hearty laugh out of that. Good times!

Water Balloon Fight

Helping dad prep the balloons. Maddox kept stealing balloons that were ready and throwing them. We had to hide them after awhile.

All 3 of them loved it!

Water, water, water

Monkey see,

Monkey do.

Oh, to be brothers, lol! I think the look on Macen's face in the last 2 say it all :)

Happy 2nd Birthday Maddox!

We took him to the water park but not sure he had much fun. While it was warm out, the sun wasn't shining. He was shivering most of the time. And with us just getting back from vacation, his sleep is off which resulted in crankiness.

He was excited for his Legos! He is obsessed with Macen's legos so we thought he'd like some of his own.

He was super proud when we sang Happy Birthday to him!


Telling us he is 2, lol.
Hard to believe he is already 2 years old! What an amazing two years he and us have had...the best. We love you Maddox!
