Not all of my posts need to be info or biz oriented, right? Every now and then, I like to show peeks at how fast my little peanuts are growing, so today’s post is peekin’ at my cutie patooties.
Who thinks their kids are the cutest kids ever? Uh, if you have kids and you didn’t raise your hand . . . well then I don’t know what to say, other than “I knew my kids are the cutest, I knew it, I knew it”. This past weekend we took our first trip to see critters. We took them to the Mississippi River Museum Aquarium in Dubuque, IA.
Here are my two little angels, Lewie and Jack, standing so sweetly in front of some huge fish. Uh yeah, did I say sweetly? Oh, I must have mistyped because as you can clearly see, sweet isn’t exactly what I see. I see 2 little terds who were slightly less than a handful. But in their defense, we had spent the night in a hotel room, way out of their routine, Lewie was coming down with the flu (as we soon after realized), and none of us had more than 4 hours of sleep. So all things considered, they were pretty darn good little squirts and they definitely enjoyed seeing all the big fish, alligator, turtles and snakes.
And here’s one of my favorite poses that Jack has mastered. He’ll shoot me in 15 years when he sees this, but for now I think it’s downright funny. You go Jack, get them boogies!
And you saw me mention our Aquarium trip was actually day 1 of our family flu fun. Yes, shortly after we left the aquarium and headed for home, fevers broke out on the kids, lasted for 2 days and just when we thought we had beat the flu bug, it had one last punch which was a cough that kept you up all night long. Here’s a picture of Lewie on one of our sick days this week . . . . looks are deceiving because a half hour after I took this glamour shot, he clonked out for a marathon nap. Poor babies. I’m happy to report that after 7 fun-filled days we have conquered that nasty bug and are looking forward to warm spring days and lots of fresh air.
Well, that’s a peek at my boys. Cute little booger pickin peanuts of mine. They really are the cutest kids ever!
