Not long ago, Daddy started a tradition in our household. Whenever it was time for the boys to have a snack, Daddy would place their food on one of our end tables, creating a sort of self-service bar. The idea was a hit! Jaden and Cody have easy access to their snack, and Mommy and Daddy don't have to worry about feeding them pieces one at a time. We use this "snack bar" all the time. In fact, now whenever the boys want a snack, they'll always go right to the table and point at it!
Recently, after sampling some Kix for the first time on their snack bar, Cody and Jaden both began moving their feet quickly and excitedly. They were sure happy about the snack!
This goofy fancy-footwork began showing up almost daily. Now, the boys can even do their silly dance on command. Daddy has lovingly nicknamed it their "Happy Feet."
With summer drawing to a close, we've been trying to fit in some of our last warm-weather outings. One of the places we were excited to visit was our new water park, the Oasis. This park has a special connection with our boys-- it's exactly as old as they are. The Oasis opened on the very same day our boys were born last summer. So, of course, this spot was a must-see for us!
We first spent some time in the big pool. The boys enjoyed holding on to Mommy and Daddy,
hanging onto the side,
and sitting on the ledge to kick and splash.
Jaden and Cody also enjoyed the toddler pool-- complete with fountains and a mini slide.
We may still be a bit young to enjoy the park to its fullest, but we enjoyed the excuse to spend some time outside together as a family.
Finally, we had the joy of capturing one of Cody and Jaden's happy playtimes on video this week. Typically, whenever they are doing something amusing and we take out the camera, the humorous interactions are over. This time, the boys' peek-a-boo game with one another continued. These are some of our favorite twin moments to witness. Enjoy!
Even if you are not playing peek-a-boo or dancing with your "happy feet," we pray that God grants you your own kind of happy times today in Him!
