Friends at the gym

Noah and Eva love the opportunity to hang out with their friends, Frieda and Rosie.

(video credit goes to our friend Josh)

I love how in this video Frieda and Noah are playing some complicated game and discussing the details, while Eva and Rosie kind of bounce around and observe.  Poor second kids. :)

Bubbles for Charlotte

Sarah and Charlotte came to visit and apparently I took no pictures.  Shoot.

I did get a few videos of the bubble blowing, which should count for something...

Noah is astonishingly good at that, huh.  He's constantly reminding me he is older than I realize.

We love us some playdough around here.


Cheese cheese!!

Look mommy, I am making a REALLY BIG one.

Cheese!! ... oh, have we moved on from that?

Talented and good looking

I swear this was Eva's idea

 Often after I bring the kids home from school they want to run around the front yard for a few minutes before we go inside.  Last week, Eva wanted to play some kind of weird falling down game.

Well, they seemed to like it... 

Silly kids.

Raising the Bar

Today: Saturdays at the JCC children's gym.  Tomorrow: olympic trials.

Ok, fine, tomorrow: monkey bars.  We can take this one step at a time.

Under construction

On Friday I picked the kids up from school and they were "doing construction."

Eye protection is very important, mommy.


Look Mommy, we're doing construction!

Clearly there is some confusion about what direction on the work gloves is up.

While I am generally eager to get home in the evening, it is really great to go to pick them up and even though they are almost (or actually) the last kids there, they are happy and do not want to leave.
