Spring 2011-16 & 17 mos-ish:)

Lakai, Brady, & Ben enjoying a popsicle after running through sprinklers at the Lows while mom & dad were on a date--what fun babysitters!

chowing down on some watermelon with Lakai

suckers at Costco:)

As illustrated above...Ben is ALL about snacks these days and if it weren't for snacks he would not be thriving. He eats like a bird-a small one at that. He is surviving on chocolate milk, goldfish, veggie straws, dum dums, fruit snacks, yogurt, ice pops, and an occasional bite of REAL food:)

One day after a walk at Cherokee Park, we stripped them down to their diaps and let them run in the fountains:) Lakai and Ben were in HEAVEN!

Since Lance's hip surgery, ALL of my friends have been so awesome with offering to watch Ben for me while I work on Mondays and Fridays. He would be so happy playing at all of their houses and I feel so lucky to have so many people that I know I could leave him with anytime. I end up bugging Shanah the most because Ben and Lakai are on the same schedule entirely, eat all the same snacks, walk and play at park almost every am together, live super close so i dont have to wake up early or take a 2 hour lunch to come get him and put him down at home:), watch all the same shows, and are BFF:) they get so excited to see each other some are some pics from their PJ parties:)

watching shows...

Ben and most of his buddies at the Zoo last week...

Ben loves yogurt--but only when he gets to feed himself=MESSY!!
one of his favorite hobbies is using the keys to "lock" all the screws in the door:)
getting haircut #2 from daddy- such a GOOD BOY!

Ben's first time bowling--he was a big fan:)
and I was able to blame my bad score on bowling with him in tow:)

Ben loves mowing the lawn with dad--and with mom now:)

Emily came to visit us this month. She is a rockstar and was participating the Christopher Reeves Relay as part of the Derby Marathon. We had fun doing some of the touristy Louisville stuff with her and Ben and I got to go cheer her on during her leg of the relay!

Batter up:)

posing inside with Ken--but other than stance and uni it looked nothing like him:)

Even though we just saw him, still fun to see him in action while in KY--Glad you made it to Louisville Slugger museum & that Mariners are represented well:)

I wish we could have some good weather so we could have fun outside like Ben! He is so cute.

Cute pictures! Just so you know, I am now eagerily awaiting a Ben and Mommy lawnmowing picture as you referenced. Tell Lance I hope he's still having a speedy recovery. See you in WA in a few.
