Jake listening to a movie in the van. 

The headphones are almost as big as him. 

Sleepy Jake.
He fell asleep on Olivia with a sucker stick in his hand
and the head phones on his lap.

Olivia likes to take pictures of herself.  
Here are a few that she has taken recently.
I am so cute I can't stop looking at myself. 

Man, I am looking good.

Green Beans!
Ryan loves Green Beans
Look Green Beans!

I wonder what would happen if I put these in my nose.

Look at me!
I am a green bean monster!

Ryan eats every meal with a fork
whether he needs it or not.  
At least when he is eating Mac-N-Cheese he uses a fork.

Fun at the Park
Jill and I went to visit our grandma this last week.
The kids like to go down to the park to play.
Olivia wanted me to come down and take some pictures of them playing.
Olivia and Ethan on the bouncy thing.

Let's Ride!

Grant on the chicken acting like a chicken. 

Alex on the chicken. 

Alex got tired so he decided to rest inside the slide.

Jill was sitting in her office and overheard the boys trying to decide something.  
Grant came up with the idea to draw straws. 
The next thing she heard was Grant telling to Alex to get the pens and he 
would get the paper.  Grant then said whoever
drew the best straw would win. 
He thought drawing straws actually meant drawing straws.  
I asked the kids to draw straws for me.  Here is what they drew. 

Alex drawing his straw. 

Alex drew 2 straws.

Ethan's straw.
He drew his straw in a glass. 

Olivia drawing her straw.
Olivia's straw.  

Grant's straw.
His straw is in a glass that is smiling.

My grandma's cat loves to sleep in her linen closet.

She wasn't too happy I was taking her picture.

Zumba Party by Michelle
I have been going to Zumba since February 2011 and have dropped
30 pounds.  Scott wanted in on the party so he started going with me and he has dropped 20 pounds.  Zumba just moved into an awesome new studio.  
Below are some pictures of Michelle shaking it.  
By the way Michelle has lost an amazing 100 pounds by working hard, 
eating right, and shaking her booty.  
Michelle showing us the moves. 

Michelle is the one in the black pants and blue/gray shirt.
