A crazy night before bedtime

I've been trying to a take a few videos of Rhett doing things I want to remember "forever", but one of two things always happens when the camera is turned to the on position: 1. Like all children, he won't perform "on cue", or 2. Grant gets in the way - it's true. I know you're surprised.

I managed to get two rough, very rough, videos tonight.

Rhett has begun to "sing". Soooooooooooo cute. It's more like a hum where all the words are "Bluh, bluh, bluh," but you can still pick out the tune. *Side note: Daddy will not be happy to see Grant in his underwear (just got out of bath - almost bedtime), but hey - at least he has some type of clothes on... Am I right???

Rhett singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and then ignoring me. Typical guy. ha ha I think I will hide his pacifier the next time I try to video him... You can tell that by the end of the video Grant is becoming impatient with Rhett not wanting to perform. You can tell that I then become annoyed at Grant. Shocking.

Isn't it so cute when little ones copy you and have no idea what they're saying? For months now, Rhett has been saying, "Golly, golly, golly!" when we say it. Something about that cute little tongue stumbling around in his mouth trying to get this word out is too precious; I had to get a video of it. Although this is not the best shot, you get a small glimpse at his cute trick.

I was thinking of entitling this video either, "Golly!" - or - "I'm Ready for My Close-Up", or maybe even "Nice Teeth!". I'm not sure what Grant is doing in the background - your guess is as good as mine. The possibilities are endless when one is in their make-shift pajamas, underwear and holding a glass of water, and one's name is "Grant".

Splish! Splash! Saving Summer Carnival Event

The boys and I had the best time this morning as it was our first visit to the Noah's Ark pool here in Houston (Sam Houston Tollway and Westpark Dr). The pool is an outreach/ministry project for the Westpark First Methodist Church, so the pool is located on their property. It was a very nice experience. The boys enjoyed the other sweet children that were there. Grant and Rhett also enjoyed the tunnel going through the ark, the slides, and lots of spraying water! It was one of those outings I had to D-R-A-G the kids away from. We will certainly be going back, so don't be sad, cousin Jackson. We can't wait to go again with you!

Why swim when you can suck on the hand rail?

What's in your mouth, Mr. Whale?

What's her name? She's cute!

I love this water!

Do you know what else is fun besides swimming and licking the hand rail? Getting in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out of the pool!

Grant wanted me to take a video of him going down his favorite slide...
