Door Hanging

“Mommmmm help me!” is what I hear from the boys bedroom as I’m sitting in the living room. I walk over to find Zekie hanging from the door. Apparently he got up using a stool, but Kingston took it away or something and he was stuck and couldn’t get down. LOL. I let him hang for another minute or so while we talked about how this was not a good idea and we shouldn’t hang from doors, before I rescued him. He was getting pretty upset but I had to snap a picture real quick too. We’ll see if that lesson sticks!

Camp Olivia

Kingston’s friend Olivia had her 7th birthday party out at the camp ground in Moss Park on the evening of February 3rd. It’s a bit of a drive out there so we thought Harbor might take a nap in the car since he had to miss it in order for us to leave on time. But first Kingston fell asleep, then Zekie, and finally Harbor. All three out for the count.

Kingston woke up as we drove into the park, but the other two we had to wake up when we got there. We stopped at the bathrooms first, which were by the playground, and then Zekie spent the next 30 minutes whining about how he wanted to go to the park. While he whined the rest of us greeted Olivia and her family and checked out how they had set up the campsite. Olivia and her sister and cousin were going to be staying the night after everyone else went home.

Once most of the guests arrived it was time for a scavenger hunt, complete with magnify glasses to really inspect what they found. At first Kingston and Zekie didn’t want to play, but after Harbor started off, they changed their minds. Jeremy took off with Harbor and Zekie and Kingston and I started looking. Kingston didn’t want to look for any of the easy items, mostly right under our feet, he wanted to look for a flower first (which there were none of). Eventually we met back up with Jeremy and the other boys and they took off while Harbor and I went exploring on our own.  He was so fun, holding the magnifying glass up to trees and leaves and logs on the ground, checking everything out, fearlessly walking deeper into the woods and through (not around) low lying tree branches. Hahaha. He kept turning around to me and saying “Come on Mommy. Come on Mommy” so I would keep following him. He was fascinated by bark and pulled a few pieces off before he found a nice big piece on the ground that he wanted to keep. Into the bag it went.

Before the boys finished collecting everything on the list it was time to eat. There were hotdogs, oranges, candy dipped pretzels, and a make your own trail mix section. After eating the kids took off for the playground for a little bit.

Then it was time for cake and presents before it got dark.

It got dark pretty fast during presents and then I started to feel a little stressed keeping track of everyone. They had smores supplies, so now there were a bunch of kids running around a fire with sharp sticks and it was dark so I couldn’t see well and Kingston was whining cause he wanted smores, but when we toasted the marshmallows he didn’t like it and wanted something different, and I was done at that point.

So we gathered everyone up and we said our goodbyes and headed home. Everyone got undressed in the laundry room once we got home and clothes went straight in the wash since we all smelled like campfire and I didn’t want that smell sticking around till I got to laundry.

Even with a few whiny moments it was still a fun party and the boys enjoyed being outside exploring with friends.

Lizard Friend

While I was signing Zekie out from school on February 1st, some of the boys ran over to the courtyard and started inspecting a lizard. For unknown reasons, it had tape on its tail and the boys wanted to remove it. The lizard was feeling a little crowded and it decided to head towards higher ground, which turned out to be Zekie’s shoe. From there it went up his leg, which Zekie thought was funny at first. But then it kept climbing and by the time it got to his chest Alex’s mom, Nicole, noticed Zekie seemed a little freaked out and she flicked the lizard off when a gentle shooing didn’t get him to budge. Later when I asked Zekie about it, he said, “I was scared and Alex’s Mom stuck her hand under the lizard and flicked him off my neck!”. She saved the day!

Shorty Shorts

The drawback to sharing a closet with your brothers…Sometimes you end up wearing your baby brother’s shorts to school. Whoops! LOL

Teddy Bear Day

Zekie’s class had Teddy Bear Day where each kid could bring in their favorite stuffed animal. Zekie brought in Sharkie. They had a picnic lunch upstairs and then when they animals were supposed to be sleeping they snuck out to the playground and the kids found them outside playing when it was recess time. Very cute!

Veggie Tales: The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything

Zekie’s school had a movie showing after school. They showed the Veggie Tales Pirate movie on the big screen in the sanctuary. We stayed to watch it with his friends and made it about halfway through before the boys got bored and wanted to go. There were food characters, I think cheese puff things, that had faces and it was freaking Zekie out. LOL. So funny what does and doesn’t scare them.
