When we went outside to swim Parker noticed a bird in the "bat cave". I looked and sure enough a little bird was flying around hitting nearly every window trying to get out. I opened the door and we waited a while. I thought if we gave the little birdie enough time he would eventually find his way out. Parker wasn't so keen on the waiting idea. He came up with the idea to put out bird food and possibly lure the bird out. So after a very persuasive conversation I crawled off my relaxing air mattress and got some bird food. He had found an old pair of goggles and thought it would be a good idea to use them to hold the bird food. We put them on the edge of the table near the door. Waited and still nothing happened. Just as I was about to lay back down on the air mattress Parker once again demonstrated his disliking of the waiting idea. I turned around and got back out of the pool and I told Parker to walk around the other side of the table and maybe the bird would fly the other direction. It took several attempts for Parker and Paxson to walk around the table. Paxson said "I'm scared, bird hurt me." I explained the bird would not hurt him. Eventually he proudly trotted right behind Parker and followed closely behind. They crept around the table nearing the chair where the bird was resting. The second they peeped around the corner the bird flew out the door and off for a new adventure! As the bird flew off Parker said "wow I set a good bird boobie trap!" I agreed!!! I have an oh so cute video capturing the entire event however for some reason I can not get it to upload. I will keep trying. Love you all and wishes for great adventures!

Parker: Daddy will you hold my hand all night while we sleep.Daddy: Well, I will try.
Parker: Dandy does! He holds my hand all night long.
Paxson: "Mine" pulling a postcard away from Parker.
Parker: "Paxson this is actually my postcard because Kasi (my sister is working at a camp in Vermont all summer so she sends letters from time to time.) put my name on it and told me to tell you hi. So it is mine but I will share with you."
Me: Ok Parker that can be yours but when we get a postcard from Gigi then that will actually be Paxon's but he will share it with you. (Gigi is traveling with Papa in the "big truck" across the country. So they also send postcards.)
***** A day or so later*****
Me: Paxson you got mail.
Me: He got Gigi's postcard but remember he will "share" it with you.
Parker: He looked at the new postcard and said " actually mommy I think we should just share them both. This shouldn't be just Paxsons." (This postcard featured Superman flying across the beautiful city landscape.)
Me: okay if you think that is the best thing to do!
Paxson: "Pizza cook" and he pointed at the microwave
Me: okay where is the pizza
Paxson: "In here" (as he pointed to the refrigerator). He opened it and got out the baggy with a slice of pizza.
Me: Paxson I will be right back. (Parker yelled at me to help with something.)
As I walked back into the kitchen he is pushing a chair to the microwave. He gets to the refrigerator door.
Paxson: "Excuse me door" "excuse me door"
and pushes through the door to get to the microwave.
Paxson: "I cook."
Now to the average person these moments may not seem that cute. Yet to anyone that really knows and loves the boys how could you possibly say they were anything less than cute?

When I noticed what the boys were up to I thought it was to cute not to video. Love creative moments! They had a bug caught in the window. Parker tied a belt to his fire extinguisher and tried spraying it out. Then he decided that would not work. Then he tried a few other creative attempts. Then decided it was to big of a job when there were "double bugs".
