He decided to raid my container drawer, while he had a fever, so I got to wash everything he touched. It's not like I wash enough dishes, right?! :) But at least he smiled while he did it :)
It was not very nice outside on Thursday so Micah and I played some Wii Sports while Jonathan and David cheered us on
And sadly, Micah legitimately beat me in Wii bowling. I would line it up for him but then he threw it all on his own. Yeah, I'm terrible at both real AND Wii bowling, at least I'm consistent :)
I had bought some peaches at the orchard the week before and hadn't had a chance to do anything with them so one afternoon I put my mind to it and made 4 pies for the freezer and a peach crisp for us for dessert that night. I love having pies in the freezer so if we have someone over for dinner dessert is already taken care of.
By Thursday Jonathan just didn't know what to do with himself so I took him on a walk. I didn't want David to be near him so just Jonathan got to go. I haven't used this stroller in almost 2 years! It was kind of fun to get it out and only have to push one kid :)
Friday morning Jonathan was back to his mischievous shelf and honestly I was so happy to see it, it was so sad to watch him be so miserable the day before
Friday afternoon every single one of my boys decided naps were overrated and they wanted nothing to do with them. So finally I let them get up and put a VeggieTales on for them to "rest" to. Yeah, Jonathan didn't want any of that either, especially when he saw me making cookies. :)
David soon joined in on the fun in the kitchen
After not knowing what else to do with them (it still wasn't very nice outside) we decided to set up their train track on a table in the family room. Micah wasn't too excited about them trying to help him drive his train, so we got out a Melissa and Doug puzzle that has boats, a train and some cars that stand up and the twins played with those. It really has entertained them a lot the last couple of days. It also has caused some arguing over who gets to play with what, but for the most part it's been great.
By Saturday morning I just needed to get out of the house. I hadn't left the house since Tuesday when I went to get groceries other than going on a walk, so I needed to go somewhere. So Micah and I had a Mommy and Micah date that started off with some mini-golf
Micah is quite the little golfer :) It's so cute to watch
He was pretty excited about this hole. The first time he did it he got a hole-in-one so of course he had to try it again
After mini-golf we played a few games in the arcade
Then we went to lunch at Wendy's. It was a fun date with my little guy and a nice morning out.
Saturday night David was the one not feeling well so he got to have the stroller ride
This is how both he and Jonathan looked, just absolutely miserable. So sad!
Monday was a beautiful day and no one had a fever (and we didn't know yet that they had Hand Foot and Mouth) so we decided it would be nice to go for a bike ride and get some fresh air. We went on one of our favorite trails that ends up in Rockford. Here the boys are checking out the turtles on the rocks by the dam.
I wanted to get a picture of all 3 of the boys in their matching shirts that my mom got them. They didn't care if grandma saw them all in them :)
Then Micah suggested I tried taking a picture of them in the shade. What a smart little guy :)
We brought along a picnic lunch to eat by the dam. As you can see the fresh air did David a world of good because he just chowed down his sandwich. This picture really shows you how much all of my boys look alike because that is Micah next to David. If their cups weren't in front of them I would have thought it was Jonathan :). I think if they ever get close to the same size they are going to be mistaken for triplets :).
Jonathan was a big fan of the banana bars I took along. That kid loves anything with frosting
After lunch the boys jumped of the stage they have there. I love this picture. David is quite the jumper :)
All ready for the ride back
The boys have discovered the fun of the driver seat in the van. Unfortunately as Micah says "I love to push all the buttons" after they sat up there our remote doors didn't work. :) Thankfully we found the button he had pushed and they work again.
Micah had a first last night- eating the corn off the cob. Usually I cut it off for him but he wanted to try eating it like Daddy. At first he thought he just wanted to lick the butter and salt :)
But he got the hang of it.
This morning Micah got to go to Pre-School Story time at our library for the first time. The last couple of years we have gone to Baby Story time at the library and at that one the parents sit with the child on their lap. Now that he's 3 1/2 he gets to go to the Pre-School one and the parents sit on the outside. He was a little apprehensive at first and I didn't sit too far from him, but he loved it. It was pretty funny though, they started with this welcome song where they sang each kids' name. When it was his turn to say his name he turned to me and said "Mom, what's my name?" :) Oh Micah.
