A blog about two cute kids!

Well, I got an email from a friend the other day and at the bottom of it was a link to a blog that she keeps about what is going on in her life as a mother of two kids. It was a lot of fun to read and I realized that this might be a great way for me to record fun things that me, Josh, Nathan and Jack are doing and keep family and friends up to date on our two cute boys easily!

So, here is my blog! Never done a blog before. I plan to try to post here about once a week and record things that we have done during the week, cute things the boys have said or done, and anything else that is going on in our lives. So hold on tight cause me and these boys don't like to sit still and we lead a busy life!

Yesterday was Quarry Quest up in Neenah (where Josh's parents live). Quarry Quest is basically a day full of all of Nathan's wildest dreams coming true right before his very eyes. The big quarry is filled with construction trucks of all kinds and the kids get to see them up close and even ride on them! Nathan got to drive a bulldozer and work the controls on a digger truck (excavator) while an actual worker sat on the seat with him. Nathan had a look on his face that told the world that he was serious about this-he wasn't here just for fun like the other kids, he had work to do! He told us "I need to dig." He had his hands on the steering wheel to drive that bulldozer, worked the arm of the digger truck and then we all got to take a ride in the back of a dump truck (this part included Jack which was a little scary because it was a very bumpy ride and we felt like we might be thrown off). We got pictures of Nathan on the trucks and he got a video of big trucks as a souvenir. It was a ton of fun!

Jack is becoming more and more interactive everyday. He loves to lay on the floor with me face to face and have me tickle him and he giggles and squeals. Nathan is determined that Jack should roll over, so he flips him onto his belly and tells him "turn around." Jack doesn't usually do it yet, but with Nathan as a coach he will probably be doing it soon. Jack just adores Nathan which is good because Nathan won't leave him alone. He is constantly undressing him so he can give him a zerbet or tickling him and pushing him in the baby swing.

Well, we have a busy week ahead with trips to the zoo and parks and all sorts of fun things so I will update again later!


  1. Thanks for the update Amber. We will anxiously await each new blog( I had never heard of a blog before). Love Ya, Gramps

  2. You guys sound busy! How fun! Jack sure is cute. I love his chubby little cheeks! Sarah

  3. We have the cutest nephews ever! By the way...tell Jack that we will buy him ice cream. And tell Nathan that he can have more brown ice cream in December. We're glad that Nathan was able to experience a digger truck in real life. How exciting!! Jack looks very snuggly in some of those pictures. Can't wait to see you soon!
