I uploaded the pictures in reverse order, or actually the sequential order which uploads to be reverse order... anyways, here they are!

The boys want to get inside the tv fence and they've figured out how to bulldoze their way through it. I added 2 more panels and moved it further away and then Carter climbed over and threw himself over the other side, got up and started pressing buttons.

The angle of the picture makes everything look off center, but it's not, I promise.

Carter's trying on Taylor's football shoulder pads. He loved them and ran around the room laughing and showing everyone. He threw such a fit when I took them off.

Taylor, just before his first day of 1st grade:
The week before school started, I realized we had gone the whole summer and I hadn't really had any good, quality one on one time with the boys. So, I decided to take each of the boys out and away to spend time with them individually. Taylor wanted to go to B Merrell's for lunch, so we did, and he played some games and ate ALL his grouper fingers and fries. Then we went to get his hair cut and then a couple stores to get a few last minute back to school items.

Carter and I went for a walk and then went to WalMart where he walked around and 'talked' to everyone. He is such a ham. He was blowing kisses, smiling, and chatting the entire time we were out. He loved getting to walk on his own.

Tucker and I went to Hobby Lobby and walked around, admiring all the pretty things. Then we went to KFC for lunch.

Brayden and I went out for ice cream. He loved, loved, loved the ice cream and loved being able to walk around too.

My last date was with Wade! Our neighbors came over and stayed with the boys while we went on our date. We ate Mexican, then 45 minutes after leaving home, we were ready to go back. But we knew our neighbors would probably turn us back around and make us leave again, so we went to a few stores and looked at football stuff for Taylor then went home.

Brayden at Brusters:

Earlier in the week we went to The Little White House. Wade and I both learned a lot, as did Taylor. He was surprisingly very interested.

The boys touching the chest of drawers. The sign under the glass there says: "DO NOT TOUCH."

Back to "boys being boys." They are climbing on everything! ..including the couch. ahhh!

Monday, we went to the Blue Bell factory for a tour. It's amazing how much ice cream Americans eat! We learned a lot of interesting, useless, facts and stats, which I enjoyed learning. Then, the best part, we got to sample the product!! You know the commercials where they say they eat all they want and sell the rest? It's true! The employee's can eat all they want!!

Their shirts said:
Carter - I scream.
Brayden - You scream.
Tucker - We all scream.
Taylor - For ice cream!

They were so cute!

I love the ice cream shirts, cute! And had to tell you that Libby has the same play table and crawls on it the exact same way. She works and works and gets up on the table, only to find that it's not very comfy to sit on, but she doesn't let it stop her from crawling and diving off of the table! Glad to know your boys enjoy the same death-defying stunts! Saw y'all at church last week, how did the boys do in nursery?

So, it's not just boys being boys, they're being toddlers, huh?! The boys had a great time in the nursery! They cried at first, but then when we came back they were playing with all the 'new' toys and didn't want to leave!

I saw Libby and your mom at the park yesterday, she was so cute kicked back in her stroller!
