He was so pumped.

He learned to pump on the swing by himself!!!

And I was pretty pumped too.....and then I realized....

it will be 2 more years until Owen can pump himself on the swing...

Parker told Owen that "when you get big you learn new things everyday, Owen!"

Owen just frowned and whined...

Then we came in for supper and got pumped for Awana awards night at church.

And this video is so funny I had to post it.

The way Parker reacts at the end of the video makes me laugh every time. He was so pumped.

Now I need to get packing. I am headed to NYC with my mom and sisters. I am pumped!

Pumped is a really weird word to see in writing.

Sunday morning the boys woke up to a few Easter eggs filled with pennies and a new pair of flip flops in their Easter baskets. Parker quickly found all the eggs and took all of the money and put it in his wallet. Owen just jumped around with excitement and said "happy new year!" over and over again.

We were going to early church so I had to hurry the egg-hunting along so we could eat breakfast and get ready.

And while the boys were waiting for their waffles, Parker turns to Owen and says, "Owen. Easter really isn't about the hunting eggs, it's about Jesus and how he died......" Owen interrupts him and in a defensive tone says, "I know Carker! I go to bible study Carker."

Yep. He does. He really does go to bible study with me on Wednesday mornings and he must be learning more than I thought. ha.
