Staying cool indoors

The temperature has hit over 100 this entire week and it is way too hot to play outside. The boys seem to be getting bored with their toys and coloring books. So I found this Cookies and Creme pudding pops in the Kraft Food & Family magazine and had to try them out. The boys had such a good time and have really enjoyed these treats. They were super easy to make too!

As I was downstairs doing laundry today the boys had stripped their clothes off and were painting their lips in the bathroom with their treats. I snuck a picture before they saw me! This is the cutest pic, I love it.

I want to be a ......

mom says "builder" and Owen says no a firetruck guy! Oh these elaborate buildings are from Owen. He builds one at least every other day. When daddy comes home at night he shows him his design and then lifts his arms and drops it on the floor into pieces. They go flying EVERYWHERE!!!!!!! I enjoy watching him build and he is so intense about it. The tall building is a "Hotel for boys eating candy bars and lunch ables" and the other one is a "rocket"!

Hey, we have to wash our cars too

Brian and I were talking about washing the van and cleaning it out. It is one of those pesky things about mini vans. Everything goes in it and nothing comes out. Am I the only one??

Owen and Miles decided to wash their cars too. I plan on having them do this every other week. They had so much fun playing with water, cleaning with bubbles, and most of all GETTING ALONG! People always say, "Oh they are so close in age they are going to be BEST FRIENDS!" Okay so when does this really happen? They had soo much fun it was really cute to see them working hard on their vehicles. Enjoy the pics.

See they are upstairs right now yelling at each other. Okay one is coming downstairs crying while the other keeps repeating, sorry, sorry, sorry, etc. This is so exhausting.

Guy secrets by Brian Carpenter

I love my boys. Lately we've had a lot of fun telling guy secrets. For those of you who don't know, a guy secret is a secret that moms don't know about. This is a good thing because usually moms don't approve. Early this morning before anyone was awake I was getting ready to leave for work. Owen came out of his bedroom rubbing his eyes and said, "Dad can I tell you a guy secret and we not tell Mom." "Sure," I said. Owen then said, "Can we have a candy bar before Mom wakes up." Being a guy secret I had to tell him yes! So at 7 AM Owen and I shared a Reese's peanut butter cup. Owen told me that he loves guy secret. I do too Owen : ). Sorry Mom!
