First time in shoes!

Ryan is wearing a swanky pair of hand-me-down shoes from big brother Grant. And man is he adorable.

Left to his own devices...

This is what you'll get in at least one picture these days!

The weather was nice this past weekend - overcast, not too hot - so we decided to take the boys up to Sharkarosa Wildlife Park.  Grant had a great time.  Ryan?  Not so much.  But we muddled through, and got Grant all over the park with a crying baby brother in tow.  Here are some fun pictures!

Grant was not going to go near that horse.

Ryan started out happy.

Grant loved the monkeys.

Hey, Monkey Monkey!

Wook at dat pig!

Feeding the goats in the petting zoo.

Ryan had been crying while waiting for Grant to come out of the petting zoo.  See those tears?  So pitiful!

Mama and Grant!

Lazy kangaroo.

Grant's Easter Activities

Grant decorated eggs, and he also did a front yard egg hunt.  As parents always looking for the best interests of our children, we don't give Grant candy or sodas (and we get incredibly frustrated when strangers at the grocery store or bank, etc, will offer it to him, which is a side vent I'll save for another day!), we were at a loss as to tell the Easter Bunny what to put in his eggs!  So we came up with a combination of cheesy crackers (bunny shaped, naturally), Lucky Charms cereal, fruit snacks, and coins.  He loved it!

Decorating eggs with Mama.

Daddy, do you have to take pictures?

I can do it!

Look at me!

Egg hunting!

Counting all the eggs...

Enjoying the spoils!

Big Boy Bed

Well, it was a good 3.5-year run, but guess who climbed up on top of, and then fell off of his bed. Yep. So, we put the toddler rail on today.

That made naptime rather frustrating. We shall see how his sleep tonight goes. 

I didn't get any pictures of him in his newly configured bed, but maybe tomorrow. 

Then, we worked all afternoon in the backyard. Ryan enjoyed the sunshine from his playpen, and Grant did a great job of getting in the way. Haha

We've still got a lot to finish out back, but look at our beautiful flowers!  Grant is very excited to water them.

The Talker

Grant loves to say, "What are you talkin' about??!!"

10 Months Old!

Guess who's 10 months old?

And he's totally happy about it.

What did big brother look like at the same age?  Grant was WAY chunkier.
