We decided to get a family membership to the Maryland Science Center here in Baltimore. We took the boys once together and then Steve went again with Paul when he was visiting last weekend.
There is a smaller kids area up on the top floor that the boys absolutely love. We could probably bring the boys and they’d entertain themselves all day just in that little area.
So cute when Nathan figured out the two way toy thing that if he pushed on one side the other side would expand.
Watching the airplane come in…
Thank you Nonna and Poppy for the jump suit. Very comfy travel gear!
Last night was Steve’s holiday party for the Carnegie Institute. It was held at a local country club. Steve and I got all dressed up and left the boys in the loving hands of Grandma and Grandpa DeLuca. They came in for the weekend to give the boys their Christmas presents early. *spoiled/lovedDudes* The party was so much fun. Steve and I had a much needed escape from the norm and enjoyed a night of dancing. We were even the first on the dance floor.
Before we headed out we got some pictures… check it out:
I ordered some new art from Etsy and we stretched it onto a frame yesterday… hence the new backdrop.
Last Friday, Halloween, I took a vacation day and went with Ann, the boys, Aunt Laurie, and my mom to Weber’s Cider Mill Farm. Ann had recommended it. It was perfect for the boys. They had animals, and activities for small kids. My favorites were the hay maze (my first!) and the burlap sack races. They even had a haunted house and pumpkins to purchase.
I had never seen a white turkey before. They were so ugly they were beautiful.
Anthony was sprinting between the activities.
And Grandma bought three pumpkins to bring home to carve. The boys helped to pick out their favorites.
Ann might’ve been more excited than the boys to pet the animals.
We captured this picture of Anthony, perhaps one of my all time favorites.
This weekend Steve brought out the boys their lawn mower while he was mowing the lawn and the boys got to work right away. They were very serious about helping to mow the lawn with daddy.
First Nathan was mowing then Anthony pushed him off and took over.
Then the boys shared in the tough work towards the end.
We spent most of the weekend outdoors. The boys love it! They get to play in the backyard. Despite the mosquitoes they love picking raspberries, tomatoes, and peppers. They are so helpful with yard work too.
