Wonder Ava & Super Ben

This picture just makes my heart melt. They play so well together. Ave is a fantastic big sister and he just oohs and awwwws over her. Ava decided it would be fun to put a cape on "Super Ben" while they were playing over the weekend. See his beach towel "cape" tucked in his shirt pictured below?

Is this priceless or what?

Then Ava helped Super Ben crawl through a tunnel o' toys that she built for him. Thanks to his trusty cape, he zoomed right through! They are such a joy :)

Baby Jail

Well, the time has come for the baby gates to come out! Ben is all over the place, into EVERYTHING and must be contained. Since we do not have a game room or dedicated play room- some creative thinking has come in to play. So, Daddy installed extra wide baby gates on each end of the smaller living room and turned it in to a dedicated play space. So far so good.
Super Ben has had an exciting week exploring his new space. Now I know why the term "testing limits" exists!

Hi Mommy! Somebody put up Ben sized walls so I can pull up on them :)

This is typical Ben right here....trying to figure out how this whole baby gate thing works. And trying to figure out his escape plan I am sure!

Hopefully this is the only time he is ever behind bars! (I shudder to think! Oh Lordy!)

Cutest little jailbird I've ever seen. That is for sure! He is such the charmer.

The Littlest Chef

One of the fun things we did for Ava this summer was sign her up for "Cooking with Kids", a day camp at our church. It was a week long for several hours in the afternoon. It was the neatest thing and she LOVED it! All the kiddos got to cook different dishes, make their own cookbook (pictures above) and learn about dining etiquette. The best part was on the last day all of the parents were invited to come for a luncheon put on by the kids where they served up some of their favorite creations. I think it was such a great opportunity for her and she really seemed to have a lot of fun. She was quite proud of all of the things she accomplished like learning to cut with a knife, I have a little help in the kitchen :)

Shhh, I'm Hiding!

I took these photos a while back, but am just getting around to posting them. I think this onesie is so funny. I bought it for him when I was just 4 months pregnant. I think it really fits his personality. Plus I love his chuncky little legs in the last picture. They are quite popular with the ladies.

Busy But Fun Week

***Guest post written by: Ava Leicht & Jordan Generals

This week Jordan, Sher Sher, Ava, & Ben had more fun than usual. We hit it off in fun places!

First we went to church on Sunday morning.Then we went to Westwood Gymnastics gym for Reese's birthday party. It was so much fun! From swinging on the bars to front flips in the pit. The next day we went shopping plus we had a Wii tournament and we all had the most fun in a long time! On Tuesday we had 4 hours of more gymnastics fun at gymnastics day camp!

Wednesday came and that meant Schlitterbahn It went by so fast because we had 7 hr. of non stop water slide fun! We were so tired when we got home after all that sun. But it was still a awesome rockin day!

On Thursday we had a relaxing day of swimming, painting, and sleeping.

And today it's Friday, a day of more painting, swimming, and a special lunch filled with Sonic burgers, chicken strips, and cherry limeades. Now we can't wait till this weekend. We had so much fun this fabulous week! Goodbye:)
