Ben was quite afraid of our cleaning lady today....but when she pulled out the vacuum cleaner, he loved her. He sat, stone-faced, and watched her vacuum the whole family room and dining room without moving a muscle.
Daddy surprised Ben by arriving home very early and took him out for a spin in his new car.
On Saturday, we went over to the Siwicki's for a "Welcome Back" dinner. Before dinner, the boys played at Gavin's new sand and water table. They had a great time, ate a little sand and splashed a lot of water. They were completely drenched by the time we decided playtime was over...
And both ended up needing a complete change of clothes. With clothes removed, Ben escaped to try out Gavin's fantastic table. He has a thing for little chairs lately.
Thanks for having us over, guys! We are happy to be back in time for BBQ season. :)
One of the best things about being back home is seeing our friends! Tonight, we went over the Brad and Colleen's to play and for dinner. We took advantage of beautiful weather and their new swing set (is that what you call it when it's more than just swings?).
Charlie has gotten so big and soooo cute!
Ben LOVED this super-fast slide.
Ben, surprisingly, did really well in the grass.
Checking out the other outside equipment.
Charlie was trying to give Ben a hug.
And teach him about sitting in a little chair.
The boys were so cute together. Can't wait for the new little Wolf to be born in 2 1/2 weeks or less!
I wish I had a before picture! We did A LOT of cleaning out this week and ended up with pretty empty basement to move Ben's toys into so he has an actual playroom now. Nick still needed a desk to work at so he's been banished to the little corner behind the couch. Hopefully, it will be enough space for him. We still have a little work to do on the wires and everything, but this is basically Ben's new playroom!
Ben's new Ikea storage system......I realize it's never going to be this organized (each shelf and drawer currently has a theme....think he'll stick to that??).
