Michael and Matthew had their 'boy time' out with Daddy the other night, and I finally downloaded some pics from it. It's an honest fluke that they are dressed alike. It doesn't happen that often. Michael is on the left, Matthew on the right. Here are the boys in full safety gear, on their scooters in front of the house:

Also, in the spring, the boys started some Sunflowers from seeds that I put in their Easter basket (sounded better than lots of candy, so they got Sunflowers, pumpkin and watermelon seeds). When they had sprouted enough, I let them put the plants back in my garden. Now they ARE my garden. When you look, you just see their sunflowers. A few years back, I planted some sunflowers, but they were only about 5 feet high and had small flowers, but lots of them. These plants are monsters. When you look at the photo below, keep in mind that our fence is EIGHT FEET TALL!!!! Needless to say, the boys are VERY PROUD of their plants!

Finally, a pic of my coveted and finally mine coffee table. It just doesn't do it justice *laugh* That's my silly Pepper dog in front of it.

Those are some really cool pictures! I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to have daddy play time outside...but at the same time I don't want her to grow up. :) I really loved your idea of giving your boys seeds to plant instead of just a ton of candy that would have disappeared over a couple of days with nothing but a tummy ache to show...the idea planted a seed (sorry bad pun...had to do it) in my head and I think I will be doing the same thing in a few years. I can tell why you would be so excited about that coffee table as well it's very nice looking and those drawers will come in very hand.

The boys look stylish and sporty in tie-dye and skating gear. (:

I am boggling at their enormous sunflowers and your new coffee table. Does it have drawers on both sides?

Nope, the drawers are on one side, but go pretty much completely across the table. They are REALLY long. *laugh*

I try to keep a tie-dye outfit for the boys. It's something I picked up when they were infants and I got them these great tie-dye onesies. Since then, they've always gotten a new outfit when they outgrow the old one. I may be far from my hippie days, but it's still in me somewhere *laugh* You would never know it beneath the all business, Plano mommy am I now. Back when I was the barefoot art student in high school and college (the first time)...*sigh*
