Summer fun!

The boys and I have been having a fantastic summer so far!! In fact, my notoriously early risers are both still asleep and it is nearly 8:30 am. I think they are catching up on sleep and recuperating from all of the fun we have been having over the past couple of weeks! We have been hanging out with my mom, Reid, and Aunt Lys every day, and Uncle Marc and Uncle Seth when they don't have to work.

The boys started their gym class this week and it was even better than I thought it would be! There is only one other child in the class, so everyone gets lots of one on one attention from the teacher, who is an OT, and each kiddo gets to learn how to use all of the equipment. They both surprised me with how quickly they figured out what to do and by how much fun they had. I am so grateful that my mom is coming to our classes with us, obviously because I need help with one of the boys, but also because it is wonderful to have someone to share in all of the fun! Riley was completely exhausted by the end of class, but with his lower muscle tone, that's to be expected. Hopefully, the class will help him build up more strength and endurance. Ross, on the other hand, had enough energy left to do another hour! I will try to get some pics of them in class, but I'm not sure if I will be able to since both my mom and I have our hands full (literally) the whole time!

We also went to Kennywood this week with my mom, Reid, Aunt Lys, and Uncle Marc. For those of you who aren't familiar with our area, Kennywood is an amusement park and it holds lots of great memories for those of us who grew up here. My sister and I had a really fun time reminiscing about all our visits when we were younger as we walked around with the boys. Right before we left, I put sunscreen on the twins and since their hair is still pretty thin on top, I always have to spray some in their hair to protect their heads. I took the opportunity to see what they would look like with mohawks:

Excuse the pink a pinch, you do what you have to do and Target is always out of the blue ones!

I think Riley has a future in rock-n-roll!

Anyway, our trip was Kennywood was absolutely perfect! The we got to go on a couple of easy rides, the boys had Potato Patch Fries for dinner (if you are from around these parts, you know all about those!) and they got to taste cotton candy. Riley thought it was strange, but delicious. Ross and Reid refused to eat it, silly boys! Here are some more pics from the trip:

The boys and I on the turtle in Kiddyland, with Uncle Marc (and hidden Reid) in the turtle behind us.

The twins on another ride in Kiddyland....that they never really went on. Ross kept standing up before it started and making all of us way too scared that he would stand up when it was moving, so I took them off. But, they looked really cute for a couple of second sitting there, didn't they?

The boys and I, with my mom, on the train through Kennywood. Reid, Aunt Lys, and Uncle Marc were sitting right across from us.

Cute twins in a stroller.....

As we were leaving, Uncle Marc and Aunt Lys bought the boys chocolate covered pretzels. Ross and Riley were too tired to eat theirs at that point, but Reid really seemed to be enjoying his:
