Kyler has always had this uncanny bond to his Grandpa. When Grandpa showed up today nobody else even mattered! So while mom and I were off cooking, the boys (and Ella) made a trip to Exploration Place. Unfortunately, I have no pics of them having a BLAST there because I had the camera. If I would have known they were going to do something fun like that I would have given the camera to them. Oh well. I do have some pics of Kyler and Grandpa hanging out in the shade after a long day of playing outside.
...well sort of! My parents came down today so that mom and I could prepare some meals at Dream Dinners. We now have a freezer full of food that just needs to be thawed out and cooked. As some of you may know, I HATE to cook. Not only that, it's really hard to do with a two year old begging to help and a 4 month old that just KNOWS when I am busy. I am hoping (i.e. praying) that this will simplify my life just a bit.
Mmmmm, that looks yummy!

Look Dad, I can move just like a turtle.
I love crawling through the tunnel at zoo class.
Today Kyler attended Zoo Class. This month the animal was turtles. Kyler just loves to attend these classes and has even made a couple of friends. Unfortunately (for me-I LOVE zoo class), since we now have Ella Cody gets to take Kyler to zoo class and I stay home with Ella. In zoo class they learned what turtles eat, how turtles move, where turtles live, and what their shell feels like. One of Kyler's favorite things about zoo class is seeing the real live animals at the end of the class. Today the kids got to hold the turtle and watch it crawl around on the floor. I think Cody and Kyler both had a good time in zoo class today!

The finished product.
He was so proud of himself he just carried it around for the longest time.
Thank you for all of your hard work and help K.
2 year olds to sit still at the same time is impossible!

Miss Barb and Kyler
This year Kyler has been attending "school" at our church. I got him into the program for the socialization aspect of it, not only for him but also for me. I have been lucky enough to be his teacher this year and we have met some wonderful people. Since March Ella has been attending school at church also. Kyler and Ella both seem to really enjoy it. Of course Ella wouldn't tell me that, but a mama knows! Kyler always looks forward to going to school so he can play with all his friends, he also loves to see Miss Juli and Miss Barb. Kyler is really going to miss going to school this summer, but luckily he will be able to attend next year.

(Don't worry, I disinfected her hands afterwards!)
For those of you not in the know, we have a little pug named Belle. We got Belle in March 2002 while we lived in Emporia. While Belle has not always been the most innocent pug, she is very well loved in our house. We was our first "child" and we love her dearly. Granted things have changed and she is not given as much attention as she once was since we now have children. One of our favorite things to do with Belle is to attend Pug Parties. We actually have not attended one since I was pregnant with Kyler. We always seem to have something going on on the weekends they are hosted. This year was different. We were actually able to attend. The pug parties are in Auburn (near Topeka) and are hosted by Prairie Pugs Rescue. They have all sorts of different events at the parties. This year they had a silent auction, hot dog contest, costume contest, and pug Olympics. Belle, being the poor pug that she is, didn't participate in any of the events. A couple of years ago we participated in the costume party and Belle and Precious (another pug that we had) won third place. They were a pair of pink fuzzy dice. I made their costume for them and they looked quite cute. This year we couldn't stay very long, we were meeting my family for lunch and then attending my cousins graduation party. Overall, we all had a great time. Thank you to Vicki and Dennis Dressler for all their hard work putting the pug party together. What you guys do for pugs is absolutely amazing.
Congratulations Paul! Good luck at K-State next year!
(Paul was scared to death of holding Ella!)
