Matthias has been very into tractors lately so we did a farmer party for his 2nd Birthday.
|Such a yummy cake, he was so excited to see the red "Tractor Mac" on the top|
|Excited birthday boy!!|
|So thoughtful to share....|
|Happy Birthday Farmer Fuzz!|
Its hard to believe this little boy not too long ago was this sweet baby!!

Just before Matthias' birthday, Ava had a terrible fall on the sidewalk leading to our apartment. She smacked her head on the sidewalk and immediately a HUGE goose egg popped out. Now we know that everyone says it is a good sign that it popped out but just to be sure ( and because it scared the living daylights out of us!) we took her to urgent care.
|This is a profile shot of the the bruise.|
|And another ...|
|Brave little miss...|

We have a terribly hot and dry summer in St. Louis, there was a severe drought for the majority of the summer. But Labor Day weekend we saw something we hadn't seen in months... RAIN! We were on the tail end of the effects of Hurricane Isaac. Which meant, a lot of rain, but also very warm temperatures. One of our neighbors had the great idea of making a homemade slip and slide and bubble pool in the pouring rain!
It was a slippery, soapy fun afternoon!
|Matthias insisted that he needed his one arm floatie!|
|Pushing the big trucks through the mud.|
|Julia was brave enough to try the big slip and slide!|
|Matthias tried his hand and making big bubbles|
|Julia and her friend Karis hosing off all the soapy bubbles from the slip and slide|
|Ava making big bubbles...|
|Not quite the big bubble she was hoping for!!|
|I can't tell if Julia is helping Daddy hose off all the bubbles or just spraying him down!|
|Adding a little more bubble mixture to the slip and slide.|
We had such a fun afternoon in the rain. What a great idea!
