Mischief Makers

Don’t let all this cuteness fool you, these three are usually up to no good. 😉

Such close cousins, more like brothers really.

The outfits were totally unplanned! It was during my phone conversation with Kari that we discovered our boys were all dressed the same.  Alex is leaning against the railing in this picture, but he is actually a tiny bit taller than Lincoln.  They really did look like a group of triplets running around.
For craft time we had the kids put colorful thumb print leaves on their tree.
Alex, Alex, Alex…
During Alex’s bath Owen “read” books to Lincoln. They looked and sounded so sweet I had to take their picture.

First Time Bowling

Lincoln loved bowling!  About mid-way into it he did away with the ramp and discovered his own technique for rolling the ball (s-l-o-w-l-y) down the lane.  He didn’t like so much having to share the lane with Ethan and Isaac.  It took a while to sink in that he got to go twice and then in was his brother’s turn.

Mother of 3 boys?

I am quite sure this idea came from a mother of three boys. No more comparing sock size for me! Simply count the stripes. Ethan’s socks have three stripes, Isaac’s have two, and Lincoln’s have one. Such a wonderful idea!

Labor Day Weekend

Warren’s parents stayed with Dan and Kari over Labor Day weekend.

We spent an afternoon at the park.
Late this summer Lincoln learned how to ride his “big boy bike.”  Here, he is showing me with his arms just how BIG he is!
Our boys love playing games with Grandma!  Isaac was a good sport during this game, Daddy showed no mercy…
Lincoln taught Grandpa a thing or two about the DS.
And his cousins, too.
Story-time with Grandpa is always fun!
We enjoyed lefsa one morning thanks to the hard work of Dan and Mom.  🙂

Fun at the Zoo

After a long work week Warren was able to enjoy a Friday off! The older two boys were in school and we were able to take little Lincoln to the zoo for the day.  We enjoyed the experience of having an only child – how easy!

With a t-shirt like that I couldn’t pass up the photo op.
These birds were quite colorful and very attractive.
Apparently they thought the same about Warren. 🙂
To me, Lincoln looks like a perfect mixture of his brothers in this picture.
All smiles on the carousel.
* Baby Bonobos…the highlight! *
This has always been my favorite stop at the zoo. I love the bonobo chimpanzees for so many reasons.  We were particularly lucky on this zoo trip.  When we first arrived at the exhibit we could see a couple of mother chimps cuddling and napping with their babies – not too exciting. But, our patience paid off when they finally awoke and showed off their infants to us.  We stayed for nearly an hour as Lincoln interacted with the baby chimps.  Only a handful of people walked through during the hour.  The female baby copied the kids by putting her hand on the glass and giving kisses through the glass.  She and Lincoln were playing a “chase” type game where they would run from one end of the window and back again. We were able to get some good video as well.
This was the baby boy and his mother. He was too small to really play. He was wobbly when he walked and fell over easily. It was fun watching the mother protect him when the baby girl got too rough in her play.
Kisses for Lincoln!
Time to go…bye little cutie!
