Our Typical Weekend

I wanted to sort of document what a day in our weekend typically looks like... because I hope to go back and read this later on plus I hope it becomes a favorite book for my family to share as the boys get bigger!
(Caydin is almost 5 and Wyatt is 17 months)
Usually the boys wake up around 8 am on the weekends.  I always ask Caydin what he wants for breakfast and he almost always asks for pancakes on the weekend.  I'm getting better about making them on the stove and not doing the cheapo microwavable ones!
After breakfast, the boys usually go off to play cars/construction trucks/beans while I clean up the kitchen and stuff that wasn't picked up the night before. 
Wyatt goes down for a nap around 10 and sleeps until about 12.
During Wyatt's naptime, Caydin likes to go outside with Mommy and make a construction city with chalk.  We also like to do things that we can't do when Wyatt is awake, like moon dough or paint.
When Wyatt wakes up, it's lunchtime.  Caydin LOVES lunchables right now.  I usually add some sort of fruit to the lunchable and hide the cookies! Wyatt eats A LOT of everything. 
I try to take both boys outside after lunch.  We will go to the park or play in the sprinkler outside.  Wyatt loves BUBBLES so that usually happens too!
By 3, Wyatt is ready for his 2nd nap.  Mommy is usually ready for a break and Caydin usually needs to rest after being outside all morning so he watches a TV show. 
Sometimes, Wyatt's 2nd nap is my run-around time and Caydin usually goes with me. 
I try to get Wyatt up by 4:30.  After a snack time, we go out.  If we have somewhere to go in the evening, then we do that.  If not, we hang out at home.  Usually, we have something to do! HA!
By 6-7, it's dinner time.  Then bathtime.  Then bedtime!
I am usually exhausted by bedtime, but SOOO SOOO thankful for my boys!

Haircut time!

You probably wouldn't know it but Wyatt had his first haircut and we actually took about an inch and a half off the back of his hair! We still kept it long though! Love his long blonde hair!!!

Big boy had a haircut too!

Egg Hunt with Playgroup!

Well, our first egg hunt of the season was cancelled due to crazy bad weather.  So we rescheduled for the weekend AFTER Easter (April 7th).  Boy, it was hot hot hot!
This year, we headed over to Xavier's to have a fun afternoon in the sun, complete with an egg hunt, lots of dirt (sorry, no pictures!) and lots of play time!
Wyatt did great with hunting for eggs this year.  He definitely got the hang of finding one, opening it up, looking at the goodies, and moving on to the next egg.  Caydin just ran around grabbing eggs.  I think he had his mind set on finding the MOST eggs.  Caydin really isn't a candy kid so he wasn't interested in the goodies.  My kids are total opposites.
After lots of sun and lots of dirt, the boys went home to play in the sprinkler.  It was a great day!!

Mommy wanted some pictures....

...but with the boys being 4 and 1... It doesn't always go as planned!
Caydin didn't want to be in a picture with Wyatt.  Wyatt has mastered the art of saying "Cheeeeeese."
But a couple tickle fingers and both boys laugh like crazy. :)

Caydin's VPK Prom

Caydin's school put together a little "prom" a few weeks ago! Caydin had a great time.  He loves seeing all his school friends when it is not school time.  The prom was luau themed so all the kids were dressed in their cute dresses and bright colors.  Caydin played limbo for the first time! The kids thought it was hilarious when they were asked to walk backwards under the stick... so did the parents since nearly all the kids fell over.  After catching candy in his pineapple cup, it was time to play cannonball with the beach balls.  Caydin's ultimate favorite!
It was so fun to see Caydin interacting with his school friends.  I can't believe he will be graduating preschool, then starting kindergarten.  Psssh, I don't even want to think about what happens after that!

Tee-tee's Baby Shower

Last weekend was a BIG weekend around here! We celebrated Baby Madison with a baby shower on Saturday afternoon, celebrated Grandma's birthday Saturday evening, and celebrated Easter on Sunday! WOW!
We had lots of family over for the weekend.  Wyatt was teething like crazy and not in the best mood on Saturday.  He was much happier on Sunday and enjoyed playing outside all day.  He did a great job on finding Easter eggs and really understood the concept of picking up the eggs and putting them in his basket. 
We can't wait to meet Madison.  The boys have all kids of tricks and crazy behavior to teach her.  I'm sure she is going to love construction trucks and trains!

(Is this baby shower over yet?!?!)

Bestest visits!

We love when we got to see our bestests! The big boys are so independent now! I remember when we would lay the big boys on blankets and we would get to sit and chat while the boys just rolled around on the blanket.  YEAH. Not so much anymore.  Sadly enough, even our little boys aren't laying around on blankets anymore! (Insert sad face now...)
All the boys were so good! We can't wait to visit with our bestests again!

And just a walk down memory lane..

Egg Painting

Time to play catch-up!
We did lots of Easter activities before Easter since both Caydin and I were home from school all week!  Here is one of the things we did! Caydin thought painting with eggs was neat but got bored after filling up one paper.  After awhile, he switched to just using his hands! He made ONE BIG MESS!

Lovey Love

Ever wonder where Penguin Love came from??
I'm sure Wyatt learned to love his penguin from his big brother...
