Last night Jeff and Tucker had Dentist appointments. This was Tucker's second time going to the Dentist. He really enjoyed it. Here he is with Dr. Bob and his hygienist.

Look at the man--show no pain!

On Friday I joined Tucker on his field trip for school. We went to the Explore and More Children's Museum. It was really cool to see Tucker and all of his friends in action. Here is his class.

This is Lynn, she is the Director for the Oral Def School.
Tucker and Dylan playing in the South America section wearing Asian Clothing.
He is the T-Man dressed up in Mexican Clothing
Tucker learned all about Traverse Rock Climbing. It is when you climb across the mountain, not up the mountain.
Tucker, Nathan, and Christian at the Farmer's Market.
On Saturday, Jeff took Tucker fishing. Just the two of them male bonding.
And on Sunday morning, all Tucker wanted to do was sit back and relax with the paper.

This weekend was far too draining, and Carter's Gastro appointment was far too traumatic to update everyone on Carter's Gluten Intolerance. I will post in a few days.

Wednesday was Tucker's 5th Birthday. It has been a full week of celebration, starting last week when Nana was in town. On Wednesday Tucker had to go to school, he was okay with it because the Dentist was coming to school. He was very excited! Here he is before school telling me how old he is now.

Carter and I passed our time during the day waiting for Tucker to get home, by eating apples.

After Tucker got home from school we were off for birthday haircuts. Carter got his very first haircut. Here are the boys waiting for their turn.
Carter-Man is getting ready.
He did such a great job and held really still! Now he looks like a little man.
After haircuts we went to Outback for a birthday meal. Tucker enjoyed being sung to by the whole wait staff.

We got Tucker a really cool Storm Trooper Helmet for his birthday, but it turned out to be a bum toy. So after dinner we returned it and Tucker decided on a RoboRaptor. What is a RoboRaptor you ask. It is the coolest toy ever. It is a robotic dinosaur with AI technology. Tucker loves it. He named it Hutton. I had no clue where he got the name from. I said "Tucker, what is your dinosaur's name?" He quickly responded "Hunton" I said "You mean Hunting?" He said "No Hunton, No HUTTON" I said" Ok, weird name for a dinosaur, but he's yours." At the end of the night we tucked Tucker into bed, read him a book, and said goodnight. And hour later, we went to check on him and this is how we found him.
...like I said, he loves this dinosaur.
The next day was Tucker's school party. So Carter and I brought Spiderman cupcakes in for a party with Tucker's friends.
So, at Tucker's school party I am telling the story about the dinosaur and his name to Tucker's speech pathologist, and she says "Hutton? Like my last name?" WHAT! How adorable...Tucker named his dinosaur after Andrea his speech path. How cute?
Here is Carter and the aforementioned Hutton (Andrea, not the RoboRaptor)
And I had to throw this one in today. Carter is "Kissing the baby" in the wine fridge!
I have over 200 pictures from this week alone. I cannot possibly keep up. So later this week I am going to post the field trip to Explore and More that we took with Tucker's school on Friday. Also, I will catch you up on Carter and his Gluten Sensitivity.

This past weekend Nana came to visit. We had a great time, except she was sick on Friday and Saturday. But she is the best Nana, she toughed it out on Saturday and made it through the Museum of Play. We miss her so much, and can't wait to see the whole Virginia family in April.

Here are some of the highlights of the weekend:

Tucker enjoyed the mirrors at the Play Museum

I dont' know...who do you think is taller.

Tucker had the opportunity to sit down with The Count

Nana is coming in on Friday to visit us. We haven't seen her in a while, so the boys are really excited. I did a little photo shoot with the boys outside this week because the weather has been so great. The grass is showing, it's brown, but at least it is showing. That can only mean that spring is on the way. So we have been taking full advantage of the sun.

Today started with a wonderful breakfast at my in-laws. It was all you can eat pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon, and sausage. I ate so much, I thought that I was going to have to be rolled out the door. Tucker ate 6 pancakes, and Carter ate 3. The boys had a good time with all of their cousins.

After that we came home for a nap then a walk to the playground. It was a great day for being outside. 50's and sunny. You can't beat that in March in Buffalo. Here are some of today's pictures.

Carter was loving his banana this morning. And I am loving trying out new effects with editing.

All of that playing made us hungry for some much deserved ice cream!
