Anyway, that was my excitement for the day. Yesterday I had the kids out in their new pool. They played for quite awhile before I decided to get the camera so I don't have much, but they definitely had fun. I wish we had a big pool. Next house for sure!
Hmm, what else to talk about. Have I mentioned we got mountain bikes? I'm pretty sure I did. When we first went out it was just a regular bicycle trail. Easy, but turned me into a whiner. Haha! Last Monday he took me back to Potato Creek and we did the mountain bike trail. Holy crap did I not know what I was getting myself into. It was all out in the woods on a foot wide trail with tree roots and rocks everywhere. I ended up having tons of fun, but for the first 3 or 4 miles I was totally freaked out that I would fall and kill myself. Tim talked me through all that by telling me that I was in control, not the bike. When I finally believed him it got alot easier. It was a 6.6 mile trail and fortunately the second 3 went much faster than the first. I can honestly say I need to do that "easy" trail again before I take on anything more difficult, but I love that we are getting into biking!
I feel like I should update on Alex too. What can I say, Alex is Alex.....and he's 2.5. I hate 2.5. He is whiny, cries at the drop of a hat and I'm pretty sure he does it on cue to get what he wants. Makes me absolutely insane. He throws tantrums and expects everyone to do what he wants when he wants it. He is also extremely bossy, but when he's yelling orders it's quite clear he's been listening to Tim and I giving orders to Max. It's pretty funny, but not all at the same time. I love that he is still my little cuddle bug, but I'm ready for him to grow up just a little and be able to use words rather than whines to tell me what he wants. Max picked up on that a whole lot quicker than Alex seems to be. He will still eat pretty much anything you put in front of him, but for some strange reason he wants nothing to do with a few items that normal kids would love. It's too cute. He prefers broccoli to ice cream. It's very strange to someone like me to doesn't like much of anything.
Here is a video of him, both kids actually, at the park today. You can hear Alex bossing Tim around.
Well, I guess I'm just making small talk now. Not much else to talk about that I can think of off the top of my head. I've got some videos uploading now and they'll be ready before I finish this post. See a few others at the picture/video link to the right. I couldn't wait for them all ;) Hope you enjoy!
