Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Colin and Brendan
on top of corn

We made our annual trip to the pumkin patch! We went to Thies farm this year instead of Rombach's and loved it! They had a cool hay castle, a corn maze that Colin loved, and other fun stuff! It was even closer to home...what a bonus!

Two Room Renovation

We renovated both of the boys' rooms this summer!
They actually swapped rooms so Colin could have
a long wall to put his 'fathead' on!
Of course, Brendan had to go with a Buzz Lightyear/Toy Story theme!
I can't believe we have two big boy rooms in our house! Colin's room

Brendan's room

Proud Moment!

Brendan is officially potty-trained! This was my main goal for this summer and it was completed!! He had to be potty-trained to go to school and since he is three and a half!!!
He has the toys (not Toy Story surprisingly...we are into Batman now too!) that he was rewarded with after his accomplishment! Knock on wood, but we have not had any accidents and we even gave all the pull-ups away to Brendan's cousins!

More Pool Fun!

We just can't get enough of the pool this summer!
We have been the last 4 days! It is cloudy today so I think we will take a break!

Brendan is becoming a little more
comfortable with getting his eyes wet!
I love him, but what a nut...where did he
get that issue?!

Brendan and Colin

This was on the lazy river at
Ballwin's pool...we met some
friends from work there!
Cool pool! Brendan wanted to
keep going on the 'wazy iver'!

It's a swing and a miss!

One of our friends brought him

It was the only game he sat and
played quietly at! Thanks Kelly!
