Last night we went to Jump Zone to meet Spiderman and Batman. The boys had lots of fun running around. When Batman and Spiderman came out Ryan was just mesmerized. Batman was really good about letting the kids take pictures. Spiderman on the other hand was a little hyper. He kept running all over the place and wouldn't slow down. Ryan kept chasing him around trying to say hi. We finally got him to stop for a second to take a picture. While we were taking this picture some random kid jumped in the picture and I cut off Spiderman's head. Oh well! They had lots of fun though.
And here's just a random picture Kate, just had to include her in this post too!

Happy Birthday, Ryan

Ryan turned 3 this week!  I can't believe my baby boy is growing up so fast!  He's turning into such a little man.  Here are just a few of Ryan's favorite things to do right now...
He loves playing football.  He'll put on his OU helmet and run all around the front yard.  He'll even pretend someone is tackling him and fall on the ground and roll around.  
He also likes wrestling with his dad and Gabe.  He can be so rough at times.  Once he gets a hold of Gabe he doesn't let go.  
For being such a "rough and tumble" little guy he can also be so sweet.  He's got such good manners.  He always says please and thank you.  And he can be so loving.  Some nights after a long day he just comes up to me and says, "Mama, can I sit in your lap?" in his cute little Ryan voice.  
As most of you know he's really into Spiderman.  He likes to "web" people too.  If you don't know what that is you'll just have to ask him to do it for you.  I haven't been able to get a picture of it yet, but it's pretty cute.  In just the last couple weeks he's been getting into Iron Man too.  So he's really into the superheroes right now.  
He's also a pretty good little fibber.  He's go
od at blaming things on Gabe or saying, "I didn't do it!"  
Today we had a birthday party for Ryan at Gametime.  It was lots of fun.  It started out being a sports themed party.  I made these cute little invitations.  Well when it came time to pick out the cake, Ryan insisted on getting a spiderman cake.  So we got the spiderman cake.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I like keeping my parties all in the same theme, so this was hard for me.  But I got over it and Ryan loved his cake.  So we had a sports/spiderman birthday party.  

Here are some old pictures of Ryan over the years...

Pictures of Kate's Room

Here are a few pictures of Kate's room.  It's still a work in progress, we still need to add pictures and make it feel a little more "homey".  But all we do in that room is change her diaper and get her dressed, she doesn't even sleep in there so I don't feel too bad that it's not completed yet.  

This is a picture the boys painted for Kate.  They love painting and I think it turned out really cute!

I thought it was neat that I have a picture of Gabe doing this for both Kate and Ryan.

Look at how little he was!
