We gave Kyle this magnet shape set for his birthday. We thought he would like it some, but never imagined that both of them would like it as much as they do! The boys play with this magnet shape set every single day. The only thing they play with more often is their Legos. So, if you are looking for a great gift to give a 4 year old (or 6 year old), check out this magnet toy at Target!
I wanted to document Connor's cast with a few photos! He is doing amazing! Most of the time, he walks without crutches, but he does like having the crutches at school for the long hallways. I actually caught him running today (and made him stop)! The cast is definitely not slowing him down much!
There are a few things he has had to miss out on with his cast, so we are really looking forward to him getting it off in a couple of weeks (we hope!). But, I wanted to have a few photos of such a big part of his life these last few weeks.
My sweet friends, the Stuckeys, asked me to take their family pictures last year just before Christmas (see here). And, they asked me to take more this year! I am so honored that they wanted me to take pictures again! I hope that I did not disappoint them!
This picture of their two girls is one of my favorites! I just love the connection you see!
And, here is the collage of some of my favorites. As always, click on it to make it larger!
Monday and Tuesday were Fall Break from school, so Jeremy took Monday off and we took the boys camping and fishing for the first time! They had a blast! Connor was a trouper with his broken leg and was able to get around really well. They both loved fishing even though we didn't catch anything (the spot on the lake wasn't really a great fishing spot, but it was a good spot to teach them what to do).
They were SO excited!
When we pulled into the campground, the campground man (I don't know what you call him) told us that it was really windy on the lake and if we wanted to move campsites to let him know. We were doubtful because it wasn't windy at all when we left home (15 minutes before).
However, he was right! That little spot had incredible winds that day! But, we made the best of it. The next morning was much less windy and more comfortable.
Helping set up the tent:
The boys really enjoyed fishing. Although, since we didn't catch any fish, maybe I should say that they really enjoyed casting!
To keep Connor's cast dry, we had to put plastic bags over it while we were fishing. And, we kept a sock over it the whole time to keep his toes clean!
We made smores over the campfire, which was a big hit for Connor. Kyle just wanted to eat plain marshmallows!
The next morning, we went fishing again. This time they fished in their pajamas!
I LOVE this one in black and white!
Camping is definitely not my favorite thing, but it was fun to watch the boys enjoy it so much!
