Music and Goats!!

This is my last week home with Ethan this summer. It has been great to spend this time with him. I have really enjoyed our days of playing and going to do fun stuff. But it has really made me realize that I am not (at least not yet!) cut out to be a stay-at-home Mom.

On Wednesday, we met up with Paige and her Mommy at Deanna Rose Farmstead This is the same farm we went to for Mother's Day. We had a great time and I think the kids enjoyed themselves. I'm pretty sure Paige enjoyed it much more than Ethan. But at least he had fun riding in his stroller!! And I got some fresh air and adult conversation!

We fed the goats!

Paige LOVED the goats!!

She pet the goats.....

tried to climb in WITH the goats......

blew kisses to the goats......

Ethan?!??! NOT a fan of the goats!!

We took the kids into the petting area! Paige was clapping and laughing. The big white one was trying to eat Natalie's shirt!

Ethan climbed up my neck like a spider monkey!!

Then we took some time out of the strollers to play at the barnyard playground. Ethan took this chance to try and escape!

He and Paige enjoyed the swings!

As we got ready to leave, we decided we should try and get a picture of the kids together! Let me tell you how difficult it is to take a picture of two toddlers....TOGETHER!

This is the best we could do!

And then it was Paige's turn to try to escape!

I think Ethan had a good time!

Two tired Mommas, two tired toddlers.....we probably should have tried to get this picture when we first arrived!


Free Friday Concert Series! Our city has free concerts every Friday in the summer. The park is less than a mile from our house. Two years ago we went to the Liverpool concert. They are great, and of course Charlie really enjoyed it!! Last year we didn't make it because it was only 2 weeks after Ethan was born. So we were super excited to take our little guy to this year's concert. We had fun!

Playing with toys while Daddy goes to get us dinner!


All fall down

The band is starting. We stayed pretty far back from the stage area to keep the music volume to a lower level and to stay out of the more crowded areas. It was a perfect spot!

Enjoying the music with Daddy

Look who stole Daddy's chair!! (sorry this one is dark)

Getting's past bedtime

Hopefully I will have another post up this weekend. We are waiting for Ethan's 1-yr photos to be done! I know they turned out great!

Love to all!
Charlie, Beth, and Ethan
