I'm sitting here on the couch sick AGAIN!
Strep throat, it's the second time in less than 2 months.
I'm taking this opportunity to update the blog!

My brother, his wife and kids were in town this weekend to celebrate Easter. Easter happens to be my moms favorite holiday. She loves doing an egg hunt. Not just for the little ones, She makes us all do it. I can't say as I complain because we always end up walking away with a little cash!

Here's a few pic's of the boys:

 Elio really loves his Uncle Richie, and he especially loves motorcycle rides with him!

The morning really did me in for the day, I was feeling horrible. So Kyle, being the super dad that he is, took the boys outside with him all afternoon while I rested.

The boys were cold and wet, so they hopped into the  bath. Elio got out, Nico stayed in while the water drained. He was having so much fun playing in the leftover bubbles, I had to take a few pics:

In other news, the boys are getting a new playground soon. Well, as soon as the weather clears up and the ground dries out a little. This is what we have going so far:

Kyle's been doing tractor work and leveling out the ground, then comes weed block, wood chips and the super cool swing set.
Can't wait!

Feels Like Summer

We had some beautiful weather this last weekend and we tried to take advantage of it!

The boys had fun in the sprinkler 
and then we had a BBQ in the park!

and we're at it again...

Nico is pretty much into EVERYTHING! I remember when Elio went through that phase too, but they slowly grow out of it and you kinda forget that it happened. Then when number two comes around, they like to remind you about all the things the first child has grown out of. They both are in really fun stages, but I can't say as I'll miss this:
 Don't get me wrong, it's really cute when he does new things. But when I came into the kitchen to find him like this, it scares me. I also found him standing on top of the counter looking in the cupboard for a snack. I'm not a fan of them doing things that are dangerous. Which I know is only going to get worse, I mean, they are boys. But for now, the stools are moved to the garage.

With Nico, everyday there's something new. He's starting to say a lot of new words, and understand things more and more. He's getting old enough to go outside and play when Kyle and Elio are out there. We definitely have a couple of boys that love being outside (I wish this rain would go away though!)

Elio is getting to be such a big boy, in just a couple of months he'll be turning 3. It seems like he was just a little baby, and know he's a little boy. He's so much fun to be around, and he makes us laugh, a lot. In the pic above, he got himself dressed, because he wanted to go outside. I thought he looked so cute! His new thing is saying "look at me." He wants us to watch his every move, from jumping off the couch like superman, to filling his cheeks full of water like a chipmunk. I think he probably says it about 20 times a day, and I'm not kidding.

This last weekend Elio had  his first sleepover with his cousins. He's had sleepovers before with Kyle's parents, but that's been it. The girls were staying with their Nonna and Nonno (Bob and Donna) and they invited Elio to stay too. I wasn't quite sure how he would do, but he did great!
