Random post about what we've been UP to

Drew has been into bugs lately.  I asked someone the other day when they thought kids started to get a fear for bugs.  He said when we instill the fear.  I think I need to start installing because she brings EVERYTHING she finds into the house.

We went camping a while ago and I was excited to see a Pinyon Jay.  Yes I know I'm a dork!

These kids got as dirty as they could.  And had a blast doing it!

We went to see UP in 3D.  The kids were amazed and tried to grab at everything that would pop out.  There was a part in the movie where an old woman was in her bed and Drew asked out LOUD, "Is she dead?"  Not in a concerned voice but in a matter of fact that's the way life goes and get on with it, type of way.

It had been rainy and stormy off and on the past week.  We sat outside for a couple of hours one day watching the rain fall and listening to the thunder.  We LOVE it!

It makes all the trees and grass so green!

The hummingbirds are finally coming to my feeder.  We all get so excited when we see or hear one.  They sound like an airplane they beat their wings so fast.

I love the things they make in Sunbeams.  This one says "I'm thankful for my ears."  Hahaha and they have ears on the hat.  A lady at church told me she substituted for Drew's class last week and said when she sat down next to Drew and said hi, Drew looked up and with a shocked face asked, "What happened to your face?"  The lady, scared of what happened to her face looked to the other teacher and asked if there was something wrong with her face.  She said no, confused.  After the lady thought of it for a minute she realized what Drew was thinking.  Then went on to explain to her that she wasn't her original teacher and that her face was different because she was a totally different person.  You see, Drew thought the teacher was the same just her face changed.

We've been going the park lately and this one is perfect!  There's a little river running through it that the kids love to play in.

One thing I love about spring is the falling cotton.  Cottonwood trees have little cotton seeds that float around and it literally looks like snow in the summer.  I LOVE IT.  People with allergies, not so much.  I tried to get a picture of it but you can only see one when really there's thousands!
I made this for a baby shower gift the other day.  I can't wait to make more!

Alia had her 2 month check up the other day.  She's finally getting some weight on her.  She weighed 11 lbs and was 24 1/4 inches long.  She is getting SO fun.  She loves to talk to us cooing and gooing and she'll smile so big.  Our doc recommended giving her glycerin suppositories for her little belly problem and it's been working.  She's been SO much happier.  She can go for a couple of hours without eating unlike it was before when she would eat every 45 min.  I think it was a comfort thing.  She also started taking good 2-3 hour naps.  Last night she even slept the whole night from 9:30 pm - 7:45 am!

Looks like you guys have had lots of fun. I love all of the pictures. We saw up on Friday. The kids sat and ate their popcorn and candy. That was the first movie that we all saw together as a family. Good thing it was really funny. We were in your old stomping grounds on Saturday, Kailua. We were visiting Kainoa's grandma. Take care and looking forward to more of your updates.

Haha that story about Drew is so funny. I pictured the teacher as an older lady so I thought she was going to explain that she is old and wrinkly or something. Alia is starting to look like the other kids and less like Liza.
