Bennett went with Nana & Papa tonight to get his hair cut. Such a grown up looking boy now with his new hair!

Adults Only!

We headed out for a pre-baby dinner with the Nelson's and the Barr's last weekend. Buca's was a great place and all of us enjoyed the uninterrupted conversation. Normally when we are together it is yelling to talk over screaming, running children. Or running out the door because our time has expired. So much fun to have such great friends!!

Here Fishy, Fishy!

We made it out for the first time this weekend for Bennett and Travis to fish at the state park. Bennett had a great time and Ethan and Maryn came out to fish for a while, too! They had a lot of fun. Travis narrowly missed being hooked in the throat - luckily it went into his shirt. Other then that we all survived and they even caught one sun fish!

Boat Ride

We went down to the river this weekend to get the boat started and check things out. I attempted 7 pictures of Bennett... with this being the best. Everyone he had his eyes closed! That darn flash!

This weekend we had about 12 yards of mulch delivered. Papa and Bennett poured a bunch on Friday and then Saturday it was back to mulching again. 12 yards is a lot of mulch... especially when daddy is at work for 11 hours! Bennett was a great helper and this was his mulching outfit that he picked out to wear. Lifeguard shirt, soccer shorts and socks, winter boots and a Badger hat! Why not :)

Swim lessons

Bennett had a great time at his YMCA swim lessons. He worked so hard on his front and back float. Just something about swimming with another teacher other then mommy!

Baby Mode

As I mentioned we are in full baby/tax mode at the moment. Since it is not very cute to show pictures of tax returned, here are two of the baby projects that we have been working on. With Nana and Papa we got the nursery all ready for Baby. Now we just need to get the name updated once this babe arrives. Of course neither of the names are 7 letters. Poor Papa spent about 3 hours hanging Bennett's name and now we have to start over and measure again.
Bennett is so excited about this baby he can hardly stand the wait. He keeps telling me that he can no longer wait. So tonight he decided that he wanted to hop in the car seat and pretend he was the baby!

Why yes, we are still alive here at the Schneider house. We have been in full baby/tax mode, so not much time or energy for blogging. But of course through it all Bennett clearly maintains his energy. As you can see from his take on the pull up bar at the Y! Little monkey :)
