A Dragon and Snow

So these dragon pictures are from a couple of weeks ago but I had misplaced my camera (found it in my coat pocket from that day which I hadn't needed till a couple of days ago when it snowed). They are at the play area at the art center here in town. It is a giant dragon sculpture that sprays smoke (water mist) in the summer. We had taken the boys last summer and they thought it was kinda cool but it was way better now that they are better at climbing and know what a dragon is.

Hunter doesnt care

But Ethan's not to sure

Dont let it eat me
So we had some fun inside and out this weekend with the snow. While we waited for it to warm up a bit yesterday we made hand print lilies for Grandma since real ones arent allowed in the house because of allergies. We got the directions from Family Fun magazine but they don't seem to be online. Looks like a bunch of other Easter crafts though that we are going to have to try out.

Once we were done with that and had eaten some lunch we headed outside to play in the snow. A couple hours later there were two tired out little boys and one half built snow fort. Unfortunately the sun was out and by the end of the afternoon the front walls had fallen down.

For Stellan

A storm yesterday dropped about a foot of snow on us giving the boys their first snow day and the first one I can think of happening in a long time. So crazy that it was so nice last week that I got out shorts for the boys and now snow. Just another proof that we live in Colorado. Which makes it wierd because we have not had hardly any snow this year. This is the first time it has snowed this month which is uspposed to be one of the wettest months here. I cant even remember the last time it snowed for sure. At least once in Feb maybe twice. And I'm sure it was procedded by 70 degree days jsut days before the weather turned.

But the snow was great because it is bringing much needed moisture (now we dont have to go out and water the lawn yet) and it gave me a chance to make a name picture for baby Stellan.

you can check out other pictures by going to Knowing Norah where she has set up Mr Linky so all of Mckmama's followers can share their pictures

Pray for baby Stellan

this beautiful boy is in need of all the prayers he can get right now. Not supposed to make it to birth because the drs found Supra Ventricular Tachycardia in utero, many rallied and prayers abounded. This MckMiracle proved the drs wrong when he was born and had no signs of SVT. Unfortunetly things have turned around after being sick last weekend. He is now in the hospital with SVT and the drs are working non stop to try and bring in heart rate down. His heart is swollen from all the exertion and he is badly in need of all your prayers.

Baby Picture Sunday

swinging away

climbing the rock mountain

slide time

So these are like the first park pictures we have when the boys were about a year old. I guess it was probably because they never cared for swings and we took them other places instead. I look at these pictures and think they look so small but really they were about 26-27lbs. Awww and poor Ethan still didnt have much hair while Hunter looked ready for another haircut.
Head on over to Who Says Eight is Enough to check out some more babies at the park
