So far, the month of September has been a bit slower, more relaxed for our family-- what a good thing! We always enjoy lazy days at home as well as together-time as a family.
Jaden and Cody love their brother-bonding times,
their goofy, giggly times,
and their all-too-frequent wrestling times.
Here are a few of our random September hang-out times:
God has blessed us with gorgeous warm weather through much of September, so we've been loving spending much of our time outdoors. It's even been warm enough to use our water table!
On this particular day, Cody loved the taste of the animals,
while Jaden became Mr. Splash Man. We were ALL fairly wet by the end of this adventure! :)
On another cooler, but perfect fall-like day, our whole family spent some time at the tennis courts. Cody and Jaden loved playing with the large pile of tennis balls and the racquetball rackets.
Not a single other person was playing that day, so the boys had full freedom to roam the courts.
Daddy even gave Cody some beginning lessons on proper form.
The boys were excellent cheerleaders as Mommy and Daddy hit some tennis balls back and forth. They even entertained themselves long enough for us to fit in a few actual games. What a treat!
Lately, Jaden has taken a special interest in our jumper. He's figured out how to climb up the side and get himself fully inside the seat!
As you can tell, however, he doesn't always land with both feet in the correct spot. Poor little guy... being stuck isn't too much fun. :)
Jaden has also developed another random, humorous habit. Each time the boys crawl down our stairs, Jaden stops about midway down. He has found a small indentation in our wall that he absolutely loves to rub with his finger. Every time he finds this indentation, he'll happily talk to it and often start laughing. It sure makes us wonder what's going on in this little guy's mind...
And finally, to wrap up our random September happenings, both boys have recently discovered the art of throwing. Here, we captured them tossing Daddy's shoes on the ground. Jason particularly loves the grunts that the boys make while throwing.
We praise God for the good weather days, the lazy days, the time-together days, and the precious boys who give us lots of reasons to enjoy these days!
