LL Stewart State Park

We had a great weekend camping with family and friends at LL "Stub" Stewart state park. It was our first time camping there and we had lots of fun. The boys spent lots of time in the bike trailer and the jogging stroller checking out all of the trails. They've changed so much already since their first birthday. This was the first time that they played like big boys in the dirt all weekend. Now that they are both walking it was easier for them to get around the campground and they loved getting really dirty playing with their dump trucks. The campground also had a playground. We couldn't keep Mason off the slide and Brock was in heaven because it had a steering wheel to play with. Did we mention he likes wheels? :) and yes that is their little cousin Kiley sitting in the magazine holder of the love seat.

Bounce Bounce

The boys got to play in a bounce house for the first time at the ATI-Wah Chang picnic this year. I thought that they might still be too young but boy was I wrong. They loved it and we had to drag two very sad boys away when it was time to go.

Dunefest 2009

James had two motors racing at dunefest this year and both did awesome. James's three-wheeler placed second overall in the honda class but was actually the fastest single cylinder there. Maybe next year it will place first like it should if his rider can stay awake on the line. Maybe we should just invest in a blowhorn to keep him awake :) Here are a couple of youtube links to the trikes racing:

Mason's First Steps

Mason finally took his first steps on August 5th! This was our 8th wedding anniversary and we left the boys with James's mom for a couple of hours. When we came back to pick them up he just stood up and took 5 steps. No one was really paying any attention to him at the time so it took us a minute to realize that he was walking! Up until this point he had never even taken a step so he shocked us when he just stood up and started walking.
