sweet summertime fun

AdventuresIn an effort to expose the boys to…well…everything, we have been trying some new stuff! First on our list? The Hindu festival at the Hindu Temple of Wisconsin in Pewaukee. And yes we were pretty much the only white people there. But hey, they were all really friendly to us, though they seemed very harsh with each other. We tried some SPICY food (daddy said it was good, I still cant taste anything else though:0)………Meanwhile, in Aedon land….a Tantrum was brewing. About half way through the fest and still almost an hour from their bed time he busted out with all that had been stored for the 16m of his life. Even throwing himself against me! I have NEVER seen a tantrum like this from either boy(even B stared at Aedon in amazement) but then again the boys are more “whiners” than they are “tantrum throwers.” Chalk it up to him being too tired to be out so close to bed time; we packed up and went home. But the boys did get to try some new foods and see some dances!
Adventures We also went to the car show at Frame park! The weather (and the boys attitudes) held out nicely and there were TONS of cars. I did note a lot of El Caminos and 90 something mustangs (insert snort of derision here). Yes, I am a classic car snob, and yes, I think El Caminos look silly and 90 somthings mustangs dont belong at a show ….especially when they are rusting:/ Anyhow, it was nice to see them all out even though many were leaving by 3, since it was technically done.
I just didn't want to go earlier and throw off the boys routine. The boys didn't seem to be as interested in the cars as the were the big burly biker dudes, guess were going to need to talk with them about not staring:0…But I LOVED it we got to see at mint ’53 Bel Air, a few stingrays, an AMX, a few model T’s, and one AMAZINGLY restored 1937 chieftain. Ohh, and the shelby cobra that, though it was a beauty, ran like the guy had it in storage for the last year and a half, not the sound I was hoping for. These are some of the beauties!
Local parks have also become a new fav, and daddy even talked grandpa into going with the other day! They have had many of their first close encounters with other children at parks and playgrounds. It's kind of funny they look at people almost as if they're confused….they all look so different…I wonder some times, do they realize they're Identical? The playgrounds have been especially nice since they can use their climbing skills CONSTRUCTIVELY!Adventures In other news we have gotten settled after the move and the dogs (Jack Jack Attack) have done worse with the move than boys:) but we are now finding their attitudes are atrocious! Even with the smallest thing they bust out crying like they haven’t been fed in months or have a broken limb or something! 3 days into this and we still trying to hold firm on not acknowledge the “bad behavior,” with the hopes that this is just a phase to see if we will give more attention for tantrums. So far, counting, having a calm “talk” with them and ignoring until they stop the behavior have all worked. But, their explosive tempers are starting to unhinge every one…even daddy…and that’s a feat!!! At first we thought it was the teething, as they have been getting them like crazy(8 each), but we came to see it was mostly bids for attention when we were telling them they couldn’t do something. i.e. the remote is a “no item” and they sit on the floor and break into tears. Hopefully it will pass soon! Ps We also got to test out some of our new food creations nana-coco-nutty bars, granola, and even butter stay tuned for reviews:)
