Swing Sets and Silas

So the swing set of my last post, otherwise known as "The Mammoth Beast", is now ours! My sweet Dad went with me to take it down and the thing was HEAVY and well bolted together. It took us about 5 hours to dismantle it and haul it to the trailer to load it up. It is big, and it is ours. You will not see a picture in this post of what it looks like in our yard because it is still in the trailer. We are having a Playground Building Party on Saturday, October 6th and you are all invited!

Caleb went with us to scout out the swing set.

This was one of my favorite parts of the set. It is a little counter with two stools where the kids can stop and have a snack under the little covered porch!

Here is my Dad in the process of taking it down. Good ol' Dad...what would we do without him? (One thing I can assure you we would NOT do without him is buy a huge swing set that has to be disassembled them reassembled!)


Amy, Josh and Silas came to see us 2 weekends ago. Josh was in town for work, so Amy and I had time to hang out and spend some time together. Silas is cute as a button and so good natured and content. Caleb was still sick while they were here and a bit of a cranky pants, so Silas's attempts at making friends with him didn't go over so well this time. Here they are having some paci time.

This is just a cute shot of their little diaper booties:

And this is just darn cute:

Seth was more interested in Silas. I show Seth Amy's blog with pictures of Silas, and Seth likes to say his name with a cute lisp on both s's. Here is Seth's attempt at a hug, and Silas looks like he is not too sure of this rough guy.

Seth also loves his Aunt Amy, and he kept asking for her after they went back to Oklahoma City.


I will leave you with some random photos of the boys.


This is what always happens when I catch the boys in a cute moment together. Seth was hugging Caleb, I ran to get my camera, and by the time I clicked they were wrestling over a toy!

This is Steve teaching Seth how to play air guitar to something on ITunes.

Ok, now Baby P just HAS to be a boy! So he can play with all of his "cousins". These are some cute, cute pictures. I love that one of Seth hugging Silas. He's not too sure about that one. So glad you guys could spend some time together and have your kiddos bond. Can't wait to see pics of that swing set all set up in your yard!
