Dad’s day x2

Manish’s birthday and Father’s day happened to both fall on the same day so there were quite a number of ‘surprises.’ Of course, the children tend to get the lion’s share of the goodies. Speaking of surprises, Amisha unexpectedly showed up and the boys were very excited to have their “meesha” for several days. Aiden thinks she belongs to him, and him only!

A few days after the ‘festivities,’ everyone in the house was (at some point) sick. Manish had a terrible fever and headache, the twins were not 100%, Aiden had terrible congestion (due to allergies) and Hannah has a sinus infection. All of this during summertime!

Here are some recent images:

There they are!


It was delicious!

The boys waited for their turn

Evan could not wait any longer


Ethan loves it too

Even Aiden pretended to taste it

Their trucks

Over the past couple of months, Evan has been harassing Ethan by hugging him over and over just because it annoys him. Poor Ethan would complain and pout but Evan was relentless. Of course, now the tables have turned and Ethan is the ‘predator.’ They do love working together to ‘clean’ things. In the video below, they clean the mower by putting dirt on it and then taking it off. The end result was two very dirty little boys who needed baths. See the video below to watch the twins in action.

Aiden had some good days and some bad one. He is in very good spirits as he get his fill of E&E. The first thing he says each morning: “go see Ethie, Evan.”

All to himself

Not McQueen!

Things are heating up with both the weather and the boys energy levels! Keeping up with these three is quite a task given their active little minds and unending energy. Aiden had a rough couple of days with an increase in vomiting but is doing well overall.

There is no toy that Aiden loves and adores more than his “McQueen” car. In the video below, Ethan gets a hold of it to Aiden’s dismay. Manish eventually had to intervene to get “McQueen” back. Ethan then scolds Aiden for trying to hug him and the twins rough house (like only boys can).
