Porter and Max

Porter has been randomly building things.  He gathers wood and just hammers and screws things together.  His latest project was this bench he made.  He decided to give it to Barry.  He called it a rest bench.  So he could rest while he was working on his truck.

While Porter was building Max decided to stick his hand in the exhaust pipe of the truck.

Boys and the sled

So I came outside to this,  These boys are so funny!  And creative.  This slide has been the best purchase ever.  It is used all the time!  Who knew sleds were for the summer too!

What's a boy to do with tie-downs and a tree?  Climb of course.  These boys have been doing this lately.  I love that they think tie-downs are some sort of harness.  One of them yelled out, "safety first!"  I got a good laugh.

Porter, Logan, Sawyer, and Alex

Porter drew this, I thought it was cute.

Outside fun

Porter's new thing is to hook up the bike trailer to his bike.  He puts his friends in there or Max and gives them a ride.  They all love it.

Happy baby Shawn just enjoying the outside.

Max wasn't ready for me to take this.  He always puts his hand out like that if he doesn't want a picture or doesn't want me to look at him.

Ta-Da!!! His new trick!  

London (neighbor friend) and Porter just had to be a part of the picture.

Picking up Porter from school.

Max is so cute when we pick up Porter.  He will help yell his name, if he is playing at the park.  It is so cute!

Painting our yard sale treasures

Max with his amazing skills.

Porter sanding...He did a great job!


Ta-da!!! the desk once was a sewing desk.  He loved that you could put your body through it.
