Growing and growing

Our new backyard had a vegetable garden ready to go so we thought we'd give it a try even though we can't keep plants alive. Well we must have picked all the plants on steroids because not only have we not killed them but they won't stop growing. The tomato plants are now up past the window sill and full of tomatoes. And the sweet peppers the boys are holding are HUGE! We haven't had to water them much since it always seems to be raining here.

3 Years Old

Hard to believe this little guy is 3 already.  He keeps us extra busy, lol. He is pretty adventurous and not afraid of much especially if it means keeping up with an older brother. At the park he wants to jump from really high places like Macen and when we say no, he cries and says he is big too. Maddox asks lots of questions and likes to repeat his question, lol. This boy can roll his eyes like no other and also bat his eyes like no other. He's always up for getting a laugh out of someone. Maddox is known for running around the house with one sock off and one on.

He knows all the letters of the alphabet but still can't say them in order. He knows his numbers through 12 really well and loves to count anything and everything. He is eager to start preschool in the fall. He's as social as his brother so it'll be a great experience for him.

He LOVES donald duck juice (oj) and corn dogs. He currently likes to watch Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol. We love you Maddox!

Beating the Heat

 Water sprinklers, popsicles and shaving cream - a complete summer!

I got ambushed with water balloons while taking pictures.

Maddox wasn't sure of all the shaving cream on him.

We were out of shaving cream so Macen was resourceful and used what Maddox had on him.

Columbian Park

Columbian Park has a waterpark, pond, train, a mini zoo and multiple playgrounds so we spent the afternoon here with grandpa and grandma. We finished up with some yummy frozen custard nearby. 

Maddox loved being on the train.

I guess they needed to roll from one playground to the next.

Tippecanoe Battlefield Park

The boys got in some geocaching while here too.

Happy 3rd Birthday Maddox!

Maddox loved his tracks throughout the house. He doesn't ever want to take them off he says.

He helped with his cake from making the mix to laying the tracks. He picked this cake out weeks ago and I think it has been the highlight of his day. He was out of the house when I finished it up with the trees he had requested. When he came home I got a "cool, mom" over and over. Success!

He picked going to Chuck E Cheese months ago and was so excited to finally get there. Both Macen and Maddox hit jackpots on their own and followed them up with victory dances. Mom and Dad had a pretty good time too.
