Wrapping it up!

So...Here are some random pictures of our February!  There were several days that I took a few pics, but got distracted and never blogged about them.  I thought I'd catch you up with an end of the month post!

This month has been so warm, and we have loved every sunny moment!  Here we went to the park and played at the "lost bridge" again.  I love how my boys can really have fun for hours simply throwing rocks into the creek!

After the "lost bridge" and a walk in the park, we headed to Panera!  It was crazy trying to get 4 plates, a high-chair, drinks, and 2 boys outside.  We made several trips back and forth!  I am considering carrying a wagon with me where ever I go from now on.  Especially after this third little baby arrives!  But...we persevered and had a great outdoor lunch!

Even though he looks a little grouchy in this picture, Easton loved being outside and ate his entire lunch!

This apple was originally mine.  I love though, that both my boys will fight till the end over an apple.  I guess I should have known better and got them one of their own.

We went to Hobby Lobby to stock up on some craft supplies.  Parker insisted on taking his pictures at one of the tables you could purchase!   Kids are crazy!

We ate at Mcdonalds...a few times!   This is the mess from my boys, myself, and Zachary.  We enjoyed everything!  Can you tell?

The boys love playing in the play-place!  We stayed on this day for almost 2 hrs!  Yes!  I said 2 hrs!

The boys got their hair cut!  I forgot to get a picture of Parker!

 Below is a picture of us enjoying lunch on the picnic table.  We have enjoyed a few meals out there!  I can't believe how much outdoor time we have had in the month of February!
Easton loves spaghetti!

Parker has really developed a love for turkey sandwiches!

It really has been FOREVER since I have talked about our fun activity jar!  We still do it though!  I just don't always have my camera around to take the pictures of the process.  I do usually take pictures of the end results.  Below are some pictures of a few crafts we did.
Parker loves to make paper airplanes!

We have painted a few things.  Easton painted the plane.  Parker painted the trucks.

We do school work almost every day also.  Sometimes the crafts are "school" oriented.  I had cut out all of the circles with numbers already on them.  Parker had to put them in order and make a catepillar.

 Here is a picture of Parker practicing using his scissors.  Funny how something simple like this is a hard skill to learn.  It takes a while, but he loves cutting!
Here are some shapes he cut!

And finally....this is a day that we made puppets.  Parker did the cat!  Mine is the hippo!  I tried to get Easton to do a monkey, but he refused!  He ate raisins instead!  I of course drew the animals, but Parker cut out the ears, eyes, and nose.  He glued everything on, too!  He was so proud!
