Is anyone still reading this thing? Apparently kids take up a lot of time. Who knew?? But now that the boys are almost 2 1/2, I’m starting to see what people mean when they told me “oh twins get easier…. eventually.” They are finally playing independently (some of the time), they entertain each other (or sometimes bite, hit or generally torment each other) and the best part is they are finally old enough that we can start getting back to our old adventures. Oh sure, we did some adventures with them when they were younger.
July 2013: we went for our first hike
August 2013: we went to Montana
September 2013: we went to our first baseball game as a family
October 2013: our first Halloween (the boys were Mario and Luigi of Mario Bros. fame)
November 2013: Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania! (apparently the dog crate was the highlight of the trip as this was the only picture I could find)
December 2013: the boys turned one!!
February 2014: Sledding!
March 2014: enjoyed some lovely spring days at the beach
April 2014: the boys’ obsession with ball sports begins
May 2014: road trip to Portland
June 2014: another road trip, to Coeur d’Alene this time
July 2014: Jersey Shore with the Silberfeins
August 2014: visiting the cousins in Nebraska
September 2014: ferry trip to Whidbey Island
October 2014: Halloween #2, this time as Batman and Robin
December 2014: Christmas with Grandma S.
January 2015: meeting firemen (and the boys turned 2!)
February 2015: Football!!!
March 2015: their first friends’ birthday party
April 2015: our first trip to the Space Needle
Which brings us to May 2015… and what I hope will be the start of even more adventures. So far we’ve ridden a train near Mt. Rainier, attended another baseball game (and have taught the boys to cheer “Let’s go Red Sox!”) and have plans to spend Memorial Day at the beach with some friends. Next weekend we’re attempting our first overnight camping trip. And while I make no promises, I’m hoping to do a little more documenting of things. Because even if there is no one left out there in cyberspace reading my ramblings, I don’t want to forget these times with the boys. Ok, I wouldn’t mind forgetting the epic tantrums because I cut their toast wrong/put their milk in the blue cup not the red one/am mommy and not daddy/tried to make them put on pants before leaving the house/wouldn’t let them sleep with their toy truck/tried to make them take off the dragon costume before getting into their car seat. But the rest… that I want to remember.
