Fireman Birthday Party

Happy 3rd Birthday!
Jacob had a wonderful birthday party with special friends! We were joined by two firemen and a pumper truck! The kids jumped right into their rolls. Jacob, on the other hand, was a little frightened. Although we have been to the fire station Jake was not expecting the fire truck at our house and at first thought maybe there was a real fire. Once we explained the firemen were there for the party he was over joyed and joined the fun! The kids (and a few excited fathers) were able to hop on the truck, spray the hose and go for a ride in the truck! Josh and Art (another father) even got dressed up in the firemen's gear! All and all it was quite the day! Jake had a very memorable 3rd birthday. Click the above picture to see pictures of the day.

Cousin Bean's Visit

Auntie Melissa and Cousin Benjamin drove down and stayed with us for a week. We really enjoyed having them with us and getting to wake up and play with them everyday! It was so much fun even though Benji was   getting his molars. Check out the pictures of our fun week!

Today we took the boys bowling! I thought this would be a bit of a disaster but Josh thought it would be fun and he was right! We had a great time! Jake has been going through a bit of a scared phase (typical for his age). Thunder is really bothering him right now so Josh thought that connecting thunder and the sound of bowling pins might take some of the fear out of thunder. So we headed out to give it a try. Jake excited to get started. The bowling alley had these terrific ramps which really helped the ball get to the pins a lot faster than just rolling it down. We had the bumpers up too. Jake did not get bored or frustrated he loved it! Joey even got in on the action. He loves balls so we thought he might get a kick out of rolling the ball. Josh and Jake had such a good time they played two games!
