Typical second child

Getting processed sugar before he's 1. I bet I won't make the Top Ten Moms of 2010! But it was a nice day. And Carson was having a popsicle and Beckett was trying his best to get a bite, so I gave him mine.

Carson finally got the pedalling thing down a couple of weeks ago. Sure it's on a tricycle, but still, this is very exciting for him! Hoping to move onto a big boy's bike in a few weeks. And you should hear him squeal when you tell him you're taking him to the park and he's riding his bike there. We are super proud :)

We hadn't been to our "blue park" in ages so we went this morning.

Does it seem that I am favouring one child over the other? At least in terms of who I am taking pictures of? I feel the need to explain it's because Carson turns his head every time I go to take a picture now. I can sometimes catch him in the middle of doing something, otherwise, if he sees me? He runs away as fast as he can.

First day of Soccer

Carson has been looking forward to this morning for quite a while now. It was his first soccer practice!

Whoops, we went to the wrong field - we have two fields, one behind us and one at the end of our street, we assumed it was the one behind our house but it was the other one. This is why you will see pictures of him in two different jerseys. The right class is better though because two of his friends, Nate and Cameron are in that one!)

He had a ton of fun although he did find the class a little too long. When there was about 10 minutes left he was ready to go. It doesn't help there are parks surrounding the field and after he did his soccer thing he just wanted to go play. But it was definitely a success and are looking forward to a fun-filled soccer summer.

And I caught a little video of him kicking the ball around, he shows promise, doesn't he?

Boys will be boys

The other morning I left the boys out back to play on the deck while I was getting snacks ready.

When I came back out, I saw this:

Just in case you forgot, this is what he looks like clean:
