Gus Turned 3 Years Old!

Gus had a Shrek Party with Toy Story cake (that melted too fast!).

You can't take sweets away from this girl!

Hazel and Kennedy being silly.

The best picture we could get of the 4 of them posing together.

Kenny and P.

Gus Henry. My little man of three big years!

Hazel and Parker.

Back in KC- LOVIN the Leapster from Gma Sue and Papa Randy. Thanks! Gus got so many nice gifts from everyone- and lots of money that we still have to decide what to do with. You are all so generous. Kids are funny though. Yesterday I asked Gus what he liked best about his Iowa birthday and he said, "Aunt (L)indsey's tacos and the dino balloon that Brandon popped in the fan." Kids.

With the recent weeks business, I have been horrible at blogging. But, I am out of classes and into summer now, home with the kids the next few months and so excited to get back into a mommy routine with them! This past month we have had a lot happen... Josh was offered and almost took a job at a Y in Iowa, Gus turned 3, and we are busy trying to get the house on the market (painting, landscaping, fixing things, etc). We meet with two realtors later this week. We would like to sell the house now so that when another offer comes for one of us back in Iowa over the next few years, we will have less baggage to consider when deciding whether or not to take a position. It would be great to be back before Gus goes to kindergarten.

Gus had his three year checkup last week. He weighed 32 pounds (51%) and his height was 37 1/2 inches (50%) so he is just about perfect! He is hilarious. He tells us so many stories and always seems to be talking talking talking about something. He broke his glasses on Friday (well he says Hazel did it- no one really knows what happened...) and the new part will be in on Thursday so hopefully he'll have them back before Memorial Day festivities back in Iowa.

Not much else to report, hopefully I'll be able to post much more regularly now. Love and miss you all!

Hazel's Very First Royals Game!

On our way to the Royals game on May 7th. KC v. Oakland.

Hazel thought it was hilarious to put her finger in her nose because we kept telling her not to. Such a little stinker!

Yummy hot dogs!

The Merry Go Round.

It was pretty hot!

Gus LOVED the big stadium screen. When the game started he just stared at it and clapped and laughed. It was adorable.

Loving Warmer Weather

My cutie during her bath last night.

We had popsicles when we got home from the park last night. Daddy had to work late but we made the most of this warmer weather.

Hanging out earlier this week. My little girlie is getting so smart. Last night I asked her if she wanted her paci(fier) and she looked all around the room and then pointed to it lying in the floor. She is getting so old!

Gus loves this cow mask. He wears it all the time. He pretends he is mean cow.

When he's not pretending he's a mean cow, he is a monkey climbing on the stair railing.

Hazel loves to put any hat on her head that she can find and then run around in circles.

Gus without his glasses. He looks so much younger when he doesn't have them on.
