Tornado and Rain

We went to the grocery store and had just checked out when the store made an announcement there was a tornado warning and a funnel cloud had been seen at the end of their parking lot, we needed to proceed to the stores shelter. Which turned out to be the meat locker - the only place in the store that did not have windows or sky lights. Kaiden had lots of questions - Why are we going in here? Why is everyone going in here? Why do we have to go in here? Why is it so cold? I asked him if he knew what a tornado was and he said he had seen it on TV - houses and cows fly around in the air. I told him we had to stay here until the tornado went away so we wouldn't be flying around in the air. King Soopers was as nice as they could be under the circumstances. They brought blankets for the children and then brought out butcher coats for the rest of us. But it still was cold!

After we got home, we had a nice gentle warm rain, which the boys enjoyed more than the tornado!

Tito and I enjoy sitting on the porch and listening to the rain and smelling the air, but these boys weren't content to do that, they wanted to run between the drops!  They didn't succeed, but had great fun trying!

Water Fight

We had a water fight while the boys were here. I am not sure who won, I think Tito was the wettest, but Trevin laughed the most and Kaiden landed the most hits. The photographer wasn't even safe!

I think everyone won because everyone had a great time.

A few weeks ago we kept the boys while their parents went to Mexico.   After church we went to a local shopping center to ride the train.  Everytime we go to the zoo the train is broken so we had promised Kaiden to ride this one.  The boys had a great time on the train, but I think they had a better time at the water feature. 

We finally had to drag them away!

Tito had some help when he was adjusting the tricyle for Trevin.

Such concentration and determination!

Super Hero


I finally made Trevin's super hero cape.  Now he won't have to wear my apron or go without!
Hmm - looks like Dad stole Kaiden's - maybe I need to make another one!

Tito and I found this cabinet at the thrift shop, he and Kaiden painted it. He added knobs the boys picked out.

and the boys have their own kitchen, complete with oven, pantry, refrigerator, pedestal sink/mixing bowl.
I gathered a few things up around the house to stock the shelves,
I even knitted them smaller versions of the dish cloths we use.  I hope they have as much fun playing with it as we had making it.

Trevin is now big enough for the motorcycle (Kaiden did not give up easily).  The pink "cape" is my apron which is what I could find after Kaiden claimed his superhero cape.  I do need to get one made for Trevin - maybe this weekend.
Kaiden still likes to ride the tricycle but we are encouraging him to ride the bicycle with training wheels.
