The life and times of Jack, Owen and Ella Crossett

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Our neighborhood garage sale was this past weekend and we managed to find a nice pink Power Wheels Jeep for Ella to use. Obviously she is to small now so her brothers are driving it for her but she LOVES riding shotgun!

 Going for the radio.

Making Trouble

Ella is always trying to get into as much trouble as possible. She managed to crawl through this tunnel up onto the couch the other night. She was proud of herself!

Saturday night we headed down to the Sparks in the Park firework show in Milford. We met up with a crew of friends and family to help celebrate. Here are the boys and I waiting in line for a balloon.

 Ella was so excited about her balloon.

 I love this picture!
 Ready for the show to start!

 Mommy and Ella just before the fireworks started. She ended up falling asleep half way through the show! 
 Jack and Owen loved them and Jack couldn't stop laughing during the big finale! They want me to look up more fireworks to see this weekend!

Summer Fun

Last week the boys got to pick out new bathing suit sets from the store. Jack picked tie dye and Owen wanted a crab suit. Here they are showing them off.

 Saturday was the boys last day of baseball for the year. After the game the kids each got a trophy to celebrate a good season. Here are Carter, Jack and Owen waiting for their trophies.
 The team. Go Ironbirds!
 Carter, Jack and Owen again.

It was a good season and we are looking forward to many years of summer baseball!

Bike Video

Here are a few videos from our bike riding weekend. The first are of Jack practicing on Saturday (the day after his training wheels came off) and the last videos are of Owen the night he got his wheels off. I need to get some of them now. Hopefully tomorrow if the weather cooperates!

Bikes, Bikes and More Bikes

The majority of the weekend was spent riding bikes. Friday after Jack got his training wheels off he wanted to practice all day Saturday. Saturday night we went home and Owen decided he wanted his training wheels off too! They both picked it up right away and are masters after a full weekend of riding. Here are pictures of Jack practicing on Saturday.

 Owen on his first try.

 A few more trips up and down the sidewalk.

 Sunday we brought bikes back to Grandma and Grandpa's and there was more riding to be done! Owen giving the "thumbs" up!

These boys logged a lot of miles this weekend! I have video from them learning which I will post later but I need to get some recent video because they are both professionals now!
