People always say that dealing with the gross things that babies do (i.e. poop, vomit etc.) isn't so bad when they are your own kids. I tend to disagree. Gross is gross. But I guess if they are you own children it is slightly less disgusting.

However, I don't think that any motherly love or natural instincts can ever prepare a parent or any human for what I witnessed today. Please don't read any further if you have queasy stomach.

Let's say that one baby, let's call him baby B, had a bowel movement while in the tub. Gross? Absolutely, but not unheard of. Was the other baby in this tub as repulsed as his mother? Absolutely not. Immediately Baby A's grabby little hands found the mass and put it in his mouth. Gross? Beyond belief. Can anyone say uncontrollable dry heaving? Not from baby A, naturally, but from his mother.

Parade, Picnic and the Works

The boys enjoyed their first Idaho Falls Fourth of July Parade. Ben loved the loud cars, firetrucks, horses and dancing girls.
Andy was just there for the food. He was so excited when a politician handed him a Tootsie Pop.

It's hard to tell from this picture how much Ben loved the fireworks. He clapped and yelled at them sporadically through the show.

Andy loved them too. At one point my mom put him down for just a second. He took off immediately through the crowds to catch them. Man that boy moves fast.

Andy's favorite part of the trip was playing with his cousins in the bouncy castle.

Go Ben go...
