This is how Natalie sleeps....anywhere, all the time. My Grandpa Russell always slept with his arms like that and my Grandpa Duryea always, always, crossed his ankles. Guess our little cutie picked up some comfort pointers from her Great-grandpas! Posted by Picasa

She rolled over!!!!

Natalie did it. She has been working on it for a few weeks, but that darn shoulder kept getting in the way. Watch out, she's on the move!!!

Ready for their day to start. Tyler can you spell s-t-r-e-s-s-e-d? Posted by Picasa

I like this one because Tyler doesn't look stressed and Lindsey looks like such a big girl. Also, another reminder that we have to bite the bullet and get Michael's hair cut. Posted by Picasa

One of Mom's coworkers went to a baby shower and this was one of their favors. Cute huh? It's a lifesaver and fondant candy attached to a jellybean! I think it is an adorable idea. Posted by Picasa

Tyler is officially a Sixth Grader.

School started today.....yayyy! We are so proud of you, Tyler. Today was the first time I had to juggle taking Tyler to school by 8:30 and still get Lindsey to preschool on the other side of town by 9:00 with Michael & Natalie in tow. Let me tell you, it was exhausting!!!! I put the kids in and out of the car, 13 times......13 times. I now get what they mean when they say that Moms are taxi drivers. Lindsey cried again today and it broke my heart.....the tears were just spilling off of her cute chubby cheeks....Michael missed having both Lindsey and Tyler around. It is going to take some adjusting for him. Of course, Natalie was an angel!

All set for his first day. Posted by Picasa

She loves her toes. Posted by Picasa

Lindsey got a wonderful birthday present from her friend, Miranda. A tutu.....she wore it all day long. She said her name is now, Angelina Ballerina. Posted by Picasa

First Day of Preschool.

So, she started school today. She is a big girl, all ready to take on the world. She did resist to the idea of school once we got there, but as soon as I left, she had a great time. She is, oh so proud, of herself. Her Mommy and Daddy are too.

Preschool here she comes! Posted by Picasa

After school, she had to paint. You know how it is when you are a big can't be bothered. Posted by Picasa

Historic Train Depot & Children's Museum

Day 4 we visited the Historic Train, was Michael excited to see a "CHOO-CHOO". Lindsey and Tyler liked looking at it, but Michael would have given anything to climb on it! After the short, 10 minutes, tour of the museum, we headed over to the Children's Museum.
Oh, they had sooo much fun! The big hit was the tumble room. They didn't want to leave. Lucky for them, we bought a family membership pass for the year.

Train whistles we bought.....not a smart move. Posted by Picasa

On the 3rd day of vacation...

We visited Reid Park. It is a fairly big park with two ponds, a stream, playground area and a rose garden. I am sure there is more that I am not thinking of right now. We went at a most undesirable time....Noon. The kids had fun watching the ducks, swans and fish. They also had a good time running after Dad!Tyler was visiting his father, so we didn't do much more than that.
