Potty Training Time!

Well, the crunch is on and we now need to have Preston potty trained by July!  So feeling the pressure, we began this weekend!  I read several articles, methods, tips and tricks.  But with all things Preston and his strong willed nature.... it all has gone out the window!  The potty chart is now used as a method to keep him on the potty, the treat/prize bag is now used as a way to keep him on the potty, the ipad is now used as a way to keep him on the potty!  We are going with the flow, asking if he needs to potty, reminding him and just trying to be patient!  He has had several accidents and some successes!  I know that he will eventually have more wins than misses!  We are so proud of him and his sweetness!  My favorite moments are when I ask him...
"Preston, do you have to go potty?"
to which he responds "no mama, I fine.  I no have to potty".....
Meanwhile, Graham keeps wandering into the bathroom and sitting on the little potty! We are very tempted to do both at once, but at this point, trying to stay focused on the one task at hand!  Overall, this is the worst part of parenthood I think!  Potty training STINKS!

Ice Cream Run!

Sunday's weather post Saturday night storm was gorgeous!  So we made a run for ice cream!  Yes, both got cones and then ate with a spoon!  Only these two!.....

Country Music in the Park

We ventured out to Southlake Town Square on Saturday to support the City's event during ACM weekend!  Country Music in the Square!  The boys could have cared less about the music!  All they wanted was to look at the water!  But I had to dress them alike.... SO CUTE!  It was gorgeous at the time we went, fast forward a few hours and enter an epic storm that cut our power at the house for HOURS!  Thank you mother nature!
Preston pulled the wagon around the entire town square!  HE was so proud of himself!
It was empty because Graham also wanted to walk like a big boy! 

Saturday Morning Chores!

Henny Time!

Jason and I had a work event on Friday night, so we called in our favorite child expert, Miss Henny to babysit!  She hadn't been over in awhile (3 week vacation in Columbia.... NICE).... but only Henny can get pictures of my boys smiling!  They love her, and so do we!!!

Thomas the Train in Grapevine!

On Friday morning we loaded up the kids and grandparents and took them to see Thomas the Train in Grapevine!  When we pulled up and Preston saw Thomas he was ecstatic )even though Thomas is relatively new to him since we have always watched Chuggington)!  But it was great!  The kids had a blast and loved the train ride!  I wish I had more photos.... but I was busy chasing toddlers!

Errands with the Grandparents!

While Nana and Popo were in town, each kiddo got to stay home alone with them for a day!  Nana and Popo were awesome and ran errands and had fun with the kids in tow!  Here are a few shots from their excursions!

Easter Afternoon!

We had a rainy, kind of cold Easter Sunday, so the egg hunt was inside!  The boys had a blast and Nana and Popo arrived from Florida just in time!  Had a great Easter playing, building train tracks, cuddling and spending some QT together!
