Funny Little Conversation

The boys make me smile so much with the things that they say these days. :-) Here is a little conversation that took place today.

Me: "Ben, you need to clean all of your cars off of the couch."
Ben: "Can you help me?"
Me: "No, I'm busy in the kitchen. Ask Aaron to help you."
Ben: "Aaron, can you help me?"
Aaron: "Uh, no."
Ben: "But I need someone to help me."
Aaron: "Maybe God can help you."
Ben: "No, you."
Aaron: "No, God."

:-) So cute. :-)

The boys love their sister

Aaron had wanted to hold Grace, and was talking to her so sweetly. But, of course, as soon as I get the camera Ben is right there trying to get in the spotlight. :-) They really love their sister, though. And, Ben is very good at entertaining her if I have something else I have to do.

Aaron's 2nd Birthday

On December 5th Aaron turned two years old. We had a party for him the next day with a few family and some friends. He's a funny little boy! :-)

Bad Guys?

On the way home from the grocery store this evening, Ben and I had a conversation that made me laugh. It went something like this:

Ben: "Mom, us all bad guys."

Me: "We're all bad guys?"

Ben: "No, me and Aaron bad guys. Have super powers!"

Me: "Are you bad, or good?"

Ben: "Me superman!"

Me: "Superman is good. It's always best to fight on the side of good, becuase good ultimately wins!"

Ben: "Yeah. (pause) Sorry about that."

Where does he come up with this stuff? :-)

Playing at the Beach

Aaron absolutely LOVED to splash in the water. The boys had a great time playing at the beach.

Hadley Family Vacation at Seaside, OR

This year's Hadley family vacation was at Seaside, OR. Matt's parents rented an amazing house for all of us to enjoy. There was plenty of room for everyone (though Bekah's fiancee, Ezra, had to sleep on the couch). I didn't get very many pictures (I'm hoping to receive lots from everyone else), but I did get some cute shots at the beach.

Chitakwa Festival in Gladstone, OR

Riding a Fire Truck


Last Saturday we went to spend the day with the Lewis' at their home in Gladstone. It just so happened that that day was part of the Chitakwa Festival. We were able to watch a parade from Kevin and Becky's yard, and then walk down to the park to look at booths and ride the fire truck. It was a pretty fun day.

What Kind of Cookies?

Ben likes to get on his motorcycle and pretend to go to the store, and then come back and feed me things. He just now gave me a lollipop and a cookie. When I asked him what kind of cookie it was, he said, "a blue sour cream cookie." Mmmmmm sounds yummy, huh? :-)

Ben, Aaron and I had a wonderful time in Sacramento last week visiting my sister, Sarah, her husband, Andrew, and our brother, Nate. They have recently moved into a new home, and we were able to enjoy their wonderful pool. Almost every day the first thing out of Aaron's mouth when he woke up from nap was "pash" (splash), meaning that he wanted to go in the pool. Sarah bought some safety swimming gear for the boys. Here are a few pictures. Don't they look cute? :-)

Ben's 3rd Birthday

Benjamin turned 3 on June 24th, and we had a family birthday party for him on the Sunday before. His favorite gift, by far, was the Harley Davidson "momocycle" from his Nana and Papa. It took quite a while to get him off of it to open the rest of his presents. :-)

Ben helped to decorate his birthday cake.

videoWhen Ben blew out his candle, he may have sent a little spit along with it. :-) Oh well.
