Bob the Builder!!!

We went to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh while visiting Beaver Falls in the beginning of July. They had a "Bob the Builder" exhibit and Xavier was in 7th heaven!

Fun Filled Weeked!

We spent most of our weekend outdoors close to water since it was HOT HOT HOT!

Friday evening, we had several friends over and ordered pizza and the kids played in the pool until almost dark!

Saturday morning we met Beth, Trevor, Tyler, Deb and Krista at "Fantasy Playground"! This place was amazing and the kids had a blast!

To cool off, we headed to the sprinkler park; which the kids LOVED!

When we got home from the sprinkler park, the kids relaxed for a couple of hours and then headed outside to swim in the pool. They both love the water and are both dare devils! Xavier is always the last one to get out of the pool.

The next item on our agenda was to hand/foot paint the table clothes for Ali's baby shower brunch. Lee and Ali (our neighbors) thought it would be a great idea to have Mari, Xavier and their son Quinn, get artistic and decorate the table clothes using their hands and feet. Let me just say the kids were heaven and the table clothes turned out great, even though I am not sure who got more paint - the kids or the table clothes (LOL)!!

Sunday was the baby shower brunch for Ali. The food was yummy, the mimosas were flowing and the kids once again hung out in the pool! We watched the USA vs. Mexico soccer game and let me just say Juan is one happy man. Mexico beat the USA 5 - 0! After dinner, we spent most of the evening outside, watching the kids play while hanging out with some good friends!

Awwwww I love the weekends!

Xavier's New Love....

B A S E B A L L!! While we were in Pennsylvania we got the opportunity to see Ben play baseball several times and now Xavier thinks he is he "Ben Rawding" and walks around saying "go Ben" -- "no batter" -- "strike one"!
P.S. - Xavier would sleep in his helmet if we would let him!!

And one of Mari copying her brother...
