More summer fun - huge post!

We had a really nice weekend of not doing much. Erica, Abb, Jord, and I took the boys to Emerson on Saturday and Sunday. The boys love the playground there - lots of slides. Landon also really likes to run around and flap his arms like a little crazy man.
Carter has no fear. He goes down this covered slide all by himself. I catch him at the bottom, and he has the biggest grin on his face!
Landon is sure that one of these days he'll be able to crawl all the way up the blue slide. He'll just keep trying every time we go there.
This is just a cute picture. I'm not sure why it's right in the middle of the Emerson Playground pictures, but oh well!
Landon likes to stand on this little yellow thing and bounce. I'm not sure if that's why the picture is blurry. It's still cute though.
Carter can get all the way up to the blue slide by himself. You have to make him sit on his butt at the top though. Otherwise, he just steps right on the slide. Like I said, no fear.
Abbey and Jordan were chicken fighting. It was really funny. Abbey won because Jordan's hands got sweaty from waiting for Abbey!
Carter likes to hit the tires - almost like he's counting how many there are. Landon is a little climbing guy.
On Saturday the boys were cranky. We decided to take them out of the house and go to the wading pool up at the hospital. Luckily they had a great time and so did we! Here's Landon riding his mom like a "horsey". Erica's arm looks buff.
Here's Abbey chasing Landon away from the playground. We tried to keep them away from there because there are no baby swings and everything else was metal and would have been way too hot.
I just like this face he's making. He was putting sunglasses on everyone and laughing. He even put them around his belly once.
Here's Carter being a brave boy and touching the fountain. The water was a little chilly at first, but they got used to it. He was wearing his cool Elmo trunks - little kids kept coming up and touching Elmo on his shirt. It was pretty funny!
Here's Abb and Jord in the fountain. They were giving the boys high fives. Abbey got her hair cut (she has bangs now) and looks like a little supermodel. She wanted a picture of her hair on here, but I didn't get a very good one.
I love this picture of Jordan. She was trying not to splash Carter while she ran through the water. The girls are about the best helpers ever! Here's Carter giving Jordan a high five right when we got there. Please ignore the kid's butt behind him. That was a lovely sight for all. Anyway, have a look at Carter's hair. Kyle took Carter and Abbey for a haircut on Friday. He now looks much older now and exactly like his Daddy!
Here's Landon trying out the water. His trunks were so cute. They were longer than we thought they would be!
We were trying to teach the boys how to roll down the hill. The hospital has nice grass. Landon liked to run down them. They were a bit steep for Carter, and he ended up crawling down them!
Here's some fun at home. Carter and Landon have discovered the joy of popping bubbles. Sometimes Carter accidentally eats one!
My brother turned 21 on Thursday - pretty hard to believe. We got him a delicious ice cream cake, and I actually made some dinner for once. I love his awesome Rod Stewart shirt that he wore out on the town!
This is the face Carter kept making when I would tell him to smile. He moved from person to person to eat ice cream cake with them. He's a little piggy!
As I said, he likes to eat. Jordan was sharing her Ramen with him, but he decided it was easier to just steal noodles right out of her mouth.
This picture is hilarious. Baby Einstein is enthralling, apparently even to Joe. He's been working in Whitehall, but whenever he comes over Landon yells "Bo Bo"!
Carter thought the TV remote was like a Wii remote. He was swinging it at the TV, yelling, and bending his legs. Carter really gets into it!
Look at Carter's face - he looks totally crazy! Landon likes to try this headband on everyone and laugh. Carter was helping him (I think).
Erica was bouncing them on her lap. It was quite funny. They were both laughing really hard!
