Popsicles on the porch.

We filled up the pool this morning so it could warm up but Elliot decided he wanted to jump in so jump in he did clothes and all.
So I dropped Malcolm in to cool off as well.
It was so nice out we decided to turn our pool party into lunch. You can see that I eventually changed the boys into swimming diapers Elliot's pants were getting too heavy and falling off!

This morning while we were making some breakfast shakes Elliot pulled out the aprons I made last Christmas. I realized I never posted any pictures of them. So here we are modeling them sorry they are blurry!

These are the wonderful girls I get to work with at church. We have been making journals. Working on decorating them.

And themselves.

Today's picture is of the boys in the bath, a nightly ritual here at the Hopkins home.


These pictures are from yesterday.

Elliot feeding Malcolm at snack time.

He would even open his mouth wide to get Malcolm ready for each bite.

Well we finally did it. Today we got ourselves an iMac!

Packing all three of our babies in the car for the ride home.

The unveiling

Starting it up for the first time is really an experience.

And there she is, we love her and are so excited that she is now part of our Apple family!

Malcolm stands on his own for about three seconds. This made me very excited.

Elliot is very excited about his new shoes that light up. He kept bringing them to us and saying "shoes on."

Elliot likes his shoes so much that he wanted them on even when he was trying out some big boy pants.

We had such an amazing play group today. It was a big water party. Elliot and Malcolm spent a lot of time at the water table.

Elliot was excited about the umbrellas on the cupcakes.

The pictures for 15-22 are on my mothers camera in Boise. I got caught up with more traveling and family stuff that I never got back to the blog. I am a little bummed about it because I was on such a good roll. So I have decided instead of going back and trying to catch you up I just need to move on. I am thinking of starting a flicker account to put all of the extra pictures on but until then enjoy this one.

This is the mess our lives have become by living out of suitcases for a week.
