Fun in the sun?

Having two very energetic boys is bound to bring some bruises, cuts and different sorts of injuries.  This was true for our weekend.

While celebrating at our ward's Pioneer Day celebration, Gabriel tripped right before making it to the side-walk. It was rough, and hard to see if he had broken his nose or teeth.  After emotional crying, and some blood stains, Gabriel calmed down and everything seemed to be fine.

After all we thought "tough weekend" but what else could happen? Well, I guess getting his fingers caught on the door at church during nursery time was it. He is not a crier, but this had him going for a long time. He cried longer than when he fell the day before. He wouldn't move his fingers, and for a moment we thought his little fingers may have been broken. They seem fine, but we will see.

But before the pain, the drama, and the fingers pinched at church, we had some fun in the sun.  They boys dropped their diapers and celebrated a very hot day in our luxurious poly pool.

Water is not Jake's top choice for fun, but he loves anything which involves hanging out with Gabriel.

As you can tell the boys were not concerned with wearing modest swimsuits. At one point a magazine salesman started making his way up the drive-way. As he made it to the top realized Gabriel was naked. The salesman turned around and walked away.  It was easier than rejecting him. A bit creepy, and yet I can respect that.

The boys are doing well and happy to be with each other. Gabriel is doing well.  He is very talkative and absorbs everything he hears, which at times can be dangerous.  

Jake has been pulling himself up and walking around the house by holding on to things for a while now. Just recently he started taking steps. His current count is 3 steps before getting down and crawling.
