Sunshine Sunday - boys, boys, boys

My sister and her husband recently purchased a home and they (along with my parents) have been working on it nonstop.  That meant I got to spend some extra time with my nephews.  Our boys are close in age and they love to play together.  This is what the line up looked like this week.  I am grateful they have each other.


Rex thought he came up with a clever way to get me to stop taking pictures of him this week.  Oh, not so.  Now I have ones to embarrass him with when he brings that special girl home to meet us someday.


Now the goggles are a whole different story.  We went to the dollar store the other day and I let Rex pick out one thing.  He has been begging me for goggles for over a year now.  Why?  I'm not sure.  I apparently he has a goggle fettish.  Whatever.


He has been wearing these puppies everywhere and I'm not talking about to the pool.  I banned him from wearing them to school though. I didn't want him to be known as goggle boy. That could stick, you know :)


I'm grateful for his funny personality.  It makes my life a lot more fun.

What were you thankful for this week?

  1. Haha! Adorable... I am not sure what it is about goggles, but my five year old daughter begged for a pair too. LOL! And I have a picture of my two boys with theirs on in the bathtub on night. Hilarious. I won't ever forget those silly personalities. :)

  2. Too cute! Goggles are big at our house too. Weird.

    I am thankful for my mom this week. She is in Utah and I am Maryland. I got into a fight with my husband Friday. I called my mom and talked for 2 hours. She reminded me of all of my husband's good qualities and etc etc. She is a great mom and my best friend.

  7. LOL Rex is hilarious! What a little personality. This week I'm grateful for how much my girls adore each other. I'm grateful for that every week, I know, but apparently I'm not getting over it any time soon. It just slays me. Nicole will run and slide down our hallway and come to a stop right in front of Olivia, who will be just giggling her little brains out. Or Olivia will be on the floor downstairs in the playroom, Nicole will come cover her with a giant throw blanket, cover herself as well, and then lay there reading or playing with something, keeping them both entertained. LOVE. LOVE LOVE LOVE. So much. Gah. Just, my favorite.

  8. So funny! My oldest daughter had the same fetish! First it was swim goggles that she wore everywhere (sad to admit that I enabled her, she had lots of colors) then it was her bicycle helmet! She wore that Elmo bike helmet even into the stores....definitely makes life fun and provides great memories!

  10. Rex is real classy, I can't stop giggling! I really enjoy when the cousins hang at my house too but you just wait until they try to stay up all night and go out to shoot hoops at 5a? Looney kiddos! Priceless memories..

  11. My friend's daughter is also going through the goggle stage. She calls them her "Gobbles".

  12. Could it be those goggles have something to do with super human powers??? Cousins are surely a blessing, I have great memories of make belief play with mine for hours and hours. Imagine as life goes on and they become men together, how cool.

  16. Too cute! Maybe it is a boy thing, my son loved his goggles, wore them all over the place, cried when he couldnt wear them to school or to bed.
    then it turned to galoshes. bright orange ones.
    Now it is his backpack full of ZuZu pets.

  18. It has got to be the Super Hero thing going on there!

    My little man (4) loves dress ups and especially the Super Hero disguise kind. He has discovered his goggles come in really handy at bath time for keeping shampoo out of his eyes. x

  19. So funny! My boys both love to wear their swim googles around the house, and they are 7 and 4. Sometimes I just catch them hanging out, wearing the goggles. It kind of cracks me up.

  20. Love your adorable boys! Both of my kids (boy and girl) LOVE goggles. I think they must have superhero powers when they wear them!

  21. I actually dated a boy when I was younger who's nickname was "Google Boy" because he wore goggles around his neck!
