The Tremendous Twos are Here!!

This is how we all feel at the end of a day. Life with four two year olds is fun and very tiring.
Brynlee, Addison, Weston and Cambria have turned two years old! We had a fun birthday party for them on their big day--June 6th!! I can't believe that they are already two, but they are definitely showing that they are two. Sweet, fun-loving, busy, tantruming, messy and into everything these days. I thought that in this post I would give many examples of them showing that they are two! I don't want to call this age the terrible twos because it's really not terrible, it's just tremendous! Tremendously fun, exhausting, messy and busy!

When you have four kids the same age it gets pretty crazy because what one kid thinks of the others copy. They've all started pulling off their diapers during nap time and it is so disturbing. We've been using duct tape to keep them on, but on Saturday we ran out so I used painter's tape and boy was that a mistake. Painter's tape does NOT stay on diapers!! I heard some fussing during nap time and I entered the girls' room to find this horrific mess:

Can you believe that such a sweet thing could do such a gross thing?!

I was not very happy with Brynlee or Cambria. At least Cambria didn't go to the bathroom in her crib, but still--the mess is just awful. I put Brynlee in Cambria's crib while I cleaned up Bryn's crib.

Onto happier's a cute picture of Cambria at the splash pad. She loved it!

Here's Brynlee with water spilled all over her. The kids are into grabbing everything they can off the counter tops and spilling it all over.

Here's Cambria loving playing in the mud outside! To be two again!

The kids just love playing with their cousins, Spencer, Smith, McCray, Isabelle and Malia. It's so fun to have them and my sister, Jeannine and her husband, John so close by. They love being pulled around in their wagon. Here's McCray doing the task.

It's so fun because now that the kids are two they can play at the park without me worrying constantly that they're going to fall off because they now know how to go down the slide by themselves!

Weston loves the swings!

Bubble time is always a favorite activity around our house...

the gals
Brynlee is in heaven. She's always asking for "bubble."

All of the kids absolutely love the phone. They are always walking around with play phones and talking on them. It's so cute!

Here's Cambria talking on two different phones!!

We're trying to have the kids have snack time at their little table and chairs. They love it, but sometimes it's just easier to sprinkle cheerios or goldfish on the floor for them to pick at like little birds.

Weston and Bryn

Cambria is the only one sitting at the table like a good girl!

Isn't she a cutie?!

The kids have figured out light switches!! It's hard to be changing someone's diaper in the dark because the other child has just turned out the lights!!

Cutie Cambria

Bubble time outside with Daddy. The kids love playing in the back yard.

Personality plus girl!
Here's Weston trying to get in the doll's stroller! He's such a sweet boy!

Brynlee is either really happy, really mad or really sad. Here she is having one of her tantrums...

Addison loves to hide anywhere--even under chairs.

We took the kids to their first splash pad and they had a blast!! I was shocked because they actually kept their sunglasses on for most of the time!!

Brynlee, Weston and Cambria

Weston and Brynlee

Addison was a little nervous about the water fountains at first and then he got right in the water after a while.

Weston absolutely loved the fountains!

Bryn is all smiles!

The kids love playing outside. Here's Brynlee with a broom--just sweeping the grass.

I love this picture of Cambria and Weston peeking through the grape vine planter. Such cutie pies!

The kids have this awful habit of putting dirt and rocks in their mouths--especially Weston. I found Cambria with this in her mouth!

One of the kids favorite activities to do outside is collect rocks in the buckets. Here's Cambria

Addison is just such a sweet boy and just so laid back. It's so nice to have a kid like him!

I love this picture of Brynlee

Sweet and lady-like Cambria

The kids love to do somersault. Brynlee started everyone else in this activity.

Cambria and Weston have a little obsession with shoes. They love putting on any shoes they can find. It's so cute!

We had a fun playdate at my friend Shelby's house and her triplets. The kids loved their water table.

The kids have learned to push, steal toys, bite, whine, etc. It's not so great!. Lots of time outs are happening around here.

Weston with my high heels on!!

Cambria tried them on also!!

Addison and Weston playing a "lovely" duet on the piano. I love this picture! Such handsome little men!!

Bathtime is always a favorite activity. I try not to bathe all four together very often. It gets a little too crazy and wet!

The kids found a leaky sprinkler in the back yard and had a grand time playing in the mud.

Here's our buddy Weston.

Here's Brynlee

The kids were such a mess, but it brought several moments of peace and happiness into our home so it was worth it!

Weston has become our very busy boy! We kept finding him on top of the toy chest. He's just into everything exploring. As you can see he was pretty proud of himself!

I loved this picture with the kids with their sunglasses on for five seconds. The kids love their walks. Too bad it's getting so hot now in AZ!

Weston got himself stuck in grandpa and grandma's kitchen chair. What a guy!

Another fun play date at Shelby's house. The kids had a blast playing on their large water toy. I was shocked to see them zooming down the slide and loving it!

Here's Addison, Cambria, Weston and Karina's two kids.

There goes Addison

There's goes Cambria

There goes Weston

Brynlee didn't want to have anything to do with that toy!

More park fun!

As you can see life is full and fun with four two year olds!!!!!
