Dark Skies

We went to OMSI today and then had some fun outside before jumping in the car...

It was supposed to rain today, instead we just got some dark skies
They would hardly hold still even with a treat promised for posing!
I would like this picture so much more if that jogger wasn't in the background : (

Monster Jam 2015

Phil thought it would be fun to surprise the boys by taking them to a monster truck rally, since you know they are kind of obsessed with all things vehicles. We bought the tickets a week before and told the boys they'd be getting a big surprise in a few days. The morning of the big day Phil watched some monster truck videos on YouTube with the boys to get them "pumped up" but without letting on that it had anything to do with the surprise. It did just the trick because the boys wanted to take their monster trucks with them to the surprise.
We had a few minutes to kill before catching light rail to the arena
Show me your monster trucks!
CET, Caleb's face cracks me up, haha!
For a little while the boys thought that riding the train was the surprise
Of course they are expressionless when the monster trucks finally come out!
The boys seemed to like the show a lot only it may have been a bit too long for them. I wasn't expecting it to be as long as it was either, it lasted just over 2 hours. I'm glad it was as long as it was because it was a pricey event but we felt like we got our money's worth : )
Caleb being silly
We finished off the day at our favorite kid friendly brewery.
In normal fashion, Caleb and Thomas ate the most and Eli ate the least : )

Caleb yesterday asked me how to spell love, then he gave me this piece of paper and said "this is for you mami, I love you so much!" He's been such a shmoozer lately, always telling me he loves me and giving me kisses : )
Thomas, today at the park
We've been spending lots of time in the park since it's been so warm and sunny lately
Thomas acting silly
Swinging like it ain't no thang, ha!

Taming The Beast

You may have seen this on instagram but I added a slow motion feature that makes this even
more hilarious!

When taming the beast goes wrong....(Disclaimer: no Eli's were hurt in the making of this video, he just got a good scare, ha!

The boys were doing so well petting our crazy cat. I was surprised she had tolerated it for so long but I guess Eli got too comfortable with her. And for the record she just batted his hand, she didn't use her claws thank goodness!

sleepy boys
Look at these ragamuffins! Time for haircuts!
Even papi got one too!
(Caleb on the far right, cracks me up with his serious expression!)
Caleb, not so thrilled with his new haircut
The boys were singing "cheesey cheesey!" and dancing

Racing Face

This is Caleb's racing face, it really does make him go faster : )
Remember the patches I made for these hoodies from this post A Monsterrific Boys Room!....well approximately 1.5  years later they fit!
The Caleb, Eli and Thomas monsters : )
Since we started wearing them we've gotten several compliments, yay!
We were invited to watch the Superbowl at a friends house so we missed nap time. and this is how Eli ended up by 7pm or maybe it was even earlier?
Thomas too.
Caleb was quite chipper but the minute we got in the car he was out cold too, ha!
