Bread and Birth/Fathers Day

My Birthday landed on Father's Day this year and so Jon and I had a fun weekend of celebrating. One of the presents Jon got me was a bread dome. It is so I can make delicious crusty bread. I made my first loaf last night and it was beautiful and tasted good. I can't wait to become a bread master. Thanks babe. 

I figure I should put an update of what is going on with the boys so in the future I know. Kyle is a drool machine; he is super slobbery and loves to put anything he can in his mouth. I mentioned before that he likes to be on his tummy and will probably start crawling soon. He can pivot and turn in any direction he wants and has now started to get up on his knees occasionally. We have tried giving Kyle rice cereal twice now and he has gone after the spoon but I don't think swallowed any of the food. He is super good natured and social and will smile at anyone who will look at him. Danny is very much a two year old. He wants to do everything himself and his way. He is a pretty good talker and likes to narrate what he is doing. Some of his favorite things to do are go outside, make stacks and knock them over, look at pictures and videos of himself, play with Kyle, hold on to the pull-up bar (aka the pipe), go to nursery, count things (he usually gets stuck in a loop because 7 comes after 6 and 10), and hear stories about Danny. He is a handful but usually is pretty good and doesn't have too many tantrums. Danny also likes to say "to infinity and beyond" and then jump off things. He will also reenact times that he or someone else has fallen over  I think he is going to be a fan of slapstick comedy. Some of his common phrases are "that be silly." "I eat em. Nom." "I'm gonna get you." "Kyle drool on me" "It's ok Kyle" "time out all done" "Hi Kyle. How are you? Good?" "Kyle fallosleep" When playing with the phone "Hi. I have a question for you. Bye." "I go outside no shoes" "I be crazy boy" "it's the chicken man!" "That parsley growing so big" There are more things that he says all the time but those are the ones I can think of right now. 

The boys are fun and they keep us busy. It has been fun to have Jon home to hang out with. Danny especially likes having him here and asks "where daddy go" whenever he is gone.

Things are growing

The boys and the garden are all growing good. Danny is my little gardener and loves coming outside to look at the plants. He has finally grasped the concept that not every plant will grow strawberries. For the longest time he would point at each plant and say "this grow little strawbies on it." Kyle has mastered the art of rolling from his back on to his tummy. He spends most of his time on his tummy now maybe because he forgot how to roll back the other way, but he is usually happy so it won't be long before he is a very mobile little guy. 

So far this summer we have gone swimming a few times and Danny likes the water but is a little nervous and kind of clingy when we first get there. Kyle is ok with swimming and he doesn't even get too upset when he gets splashed in the face by his brother. Hopefully by the end of the summer Danny will be brave enough to go down the slides. 

Carrie is getting married in a few weeks and we have been pretty busy with that. I can't believe she is old enough to be getting married, then again I can't believe I have two kids sometimes. Time keeps moving forward. 
FYI: this year I planted carrots, green onion, peas, tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, Anaheim pepper, cilantro, a yellow squash, and a zucchini. The carrots and green onion haven't come up very strong, but the peas are doing great and we have started harvesting some already ( I don't think any have lasted longer than five minutes from when we picked them because Danny likes them so much).
