Summer rain

80 degrees and pouring down rain...Sure, you can go outside and play.

Summer rain.

Wyatt liked playing in the rain, but did not appreciate getting water in his eyes. Hence, the hat.

Luke watching and waiting his turn. When it was his turn he didn't not like it.

Swinging

Wyatt was the first to try out the new tire swing. Pa Jim said it is starting to look like a real Hillbilly yard.

Cheerio

He licks Cheerios off the tray. Then he shoves whatever is left stuck to his cheeks in his mouth with the back of his hand. Classy Dustin, real classy.

Cheerio

Too lazy to use his hands. Dustin decided to just lick the Cheerios up.

Zoo

Dustin must have been surprised when Aunt Erin said, "smile".

Zoo

My littlest buddy.

After observing the other kids getting their pictures made with the statues Wyatt decided he would pose too. He was too busy watching everyone else to look at the camera.

We saw alligators!

My big boy

Doesn't this kid look old! He is breaking my heart. He is a very tired little boy. He worked so hard today being a gardener. We went to Grandma and Grandpa Yates and worked in the front flower bed. We pulled all the weeds and fluffed the mulch. He did great for the first 30 minutes pulling weeds and dandelions and throwing them in his little plastic bag. He even had his own mini shovel and was a "construction man". But, after a while he was "too hot" and needed to "go inside and have hot chocolate". A little later he needed to "go poopie and pee pee in the potty" I took him in and sat him backwards on the big potty. That kid watched in the potty as he produced results and laughed at his new talent! I thought his Daddy would be proud. Finally after several Dustin diaper changes and Wyatt potty breaks, we had the garden weeded. Once back at the farm he again shouted, "I go poopie now". I got him on the potty and walked out of the bathroom so he could have some privacy. ;) Sure enough, a few minutes later a naked little W came running out asking Pa Jim, "we go on a Razor ride?" Bless that Pa Jim's heart! He took W on a ride. I took this picture while W was waiting on Pa Jim to get the razor out of the barn.
