Just for Fun

Thought I would share a quick video of Lily from the other night. She was tired out from a fun day of playing outside and being a curious 1 year old. This little girl...I just love her sweetness.

Little Lily and Her Baby

Lily Jeeah is all girl. Oh yes. She has started taking a liking to her big sister's baby dolls. She loves to carry them around, patting their backs so sweetly. Pushing them in the stroller. Pretending to feed them complete with lip-smacking noises. I just want to pick her up and snuggle her like crazy when she does this. I love little girls.

Playplace Videos

Family Fun Night

We decided it was high time to take the kids out for a family fun night. We went to an indoor playplace.

Check out my monkey....

Jump. Swing. Laugh.

That smile proves this was a good idea.

They loved the ball pit. Loved. It.

Ben tried to bury himself down so just his sweet little face was sticking out.

All 3 kids were tired and worn out by the end of the night. So were the parents. Crawling around on all fours. Tunnels. Spiral Slides. Rock Walls. Whew. Not easy to be over 3 feet tall in a play world made for children. What a success.

Singin' In the Rain

There's nothing more fun that getting your rain slicker, boots, and umbrella out to go stomping in some puddles! The kids had a blast enjoying the rainy weather...well, all except Lily, who wasn't allowed to go out in the rain since she doesn't have the right gear. Don't feel bad for her though, she got her Mama all to herself for quite some time. :)

Two Wheelin' Fun

It's been a busy weekend here on Hubler Planet. The weather was gorgeous so Jason and I decided we would spend the weekend teaching the kids how to ride bikes without training wheels. Ben was super excited to try, so his were the first off. I toodled around the cul-de-sac with him for a few spins and then Jason came to take his turn. Another couple of rounds and Ben was on his way to being a big two wheelin' boy! I could not believe how fast he caught on...I guess he was more than ready to get rid of his training wheels.

I asked Ella if she wanted to learn too. Her response: "No, I don't like riding bike. I like walking." "Hmmmmm....ok...are you sure?" She had about zero interest in taking on the challenge. However, after her little brother starting logging some mileage on his bike and was enjoying his new-found freedom, she changed her tune. I left all the instructing up to Daddy and he took her round and round the cul-de-sac. She still needs a little practice, but she's getting it. Hopefully it won't be long until she gets bit by the biking bug too.

Today we went for our usual 2 mile stroller ride. I push Lily in her stroller, Ella walks beside me, and Ben rides his bike. I am proud to say that Ben made it all the way without those training wheels and even navigated the sidewalks and leaf trail. His confidence it growing more and more...I could tell he was pretty proud of himself by the end. He knew his mama was pretty impressed too!

Enjoy a few clips...
