Spilling the Beans and Other Mischief

My tree climbers at it Again!

I made the kids a sensory bin... Here's how it ended up:

Found these two guys cuddling in the middle of the night. I thing Son was on his way to my room, got tired and took a nap:

I was cooking and it was too quiet... I discovered the group pulling a dining chair onto my bed.

Wiz was scooping some beans after he got done his art project...can you tell?

And then it all went down hill...

I think it's better keeping these guys busy messes! 


Our yard has a mascot named Monte:

We decided the ruins were a bit scary for lunch, so we went down the road to Crooked River State Park. A great park I'd like to camp at some day:
