On Stage!

Today, Trigg decided to put on a show...well 4 or 5 of them once the day ended, but who's counting.  He got out his instruments and climbed up "on stage"
 He warmed up with the harmonica
 Then it was onto the drums
 Next the recorder, or flute if you ask Trigg.
 ...then with a little style!
 Lastly the guitar...
 and he sang out his song!
 Once he was finished, he packed up his "gear" into the church trailer.  Piecing this together, I played on worship team this weekend at church.  Currently Hope - Johnston-Grimes branch meets at Summit Middle School and once church is over, we have to pack up all the gear into the church trailer.  Just goes to show that kids pay way more attention then I give them credit for!
And lastly, I recorded his song and tossed it on YouTube...enjoy Trigg's rendition of "Jesus Loves Me"!

Summer Fun!

Time flies when having fun and we have been doing just that this summer.  Here is a little recap of the last 2 months and what we have been up to!
Garrett, being awesome and smiley!
 May ended with cool weather and Trigg sporting a hoodie and pants at the park...but even in cool weather, dinosaurs need to be ridden!
 We are continuing to work on house projects, and Trigg usually has his tool belt with in reach!
 This summer also is our summer to learn how to ride a bike!
 Trigg is getting it figured out pretty quickly...
 ...and having fun on 2 wheels (technically 4 with the training wheels)
 We have made several trips to Van Dee's, the local ice cream shop
 ...Trigg loves a good twist cone!
 June was also one of the wettest's June's in Iowa's history...so we got some good use out of our rain boots!
 We also found out our driveway makes a great runway for the swivel scooter!
 Racing down the drive!
 Trigg has found his love for climbing trees...although he needs a ladder to get started!
 The two dudes being dudes!
 We set up a truck wash in the front yard...
 Once the truck is clean...we did some tailgating!
 Having fun at the dinner table!
 The dudes!
 One Saturday, after a morning of playing hard, I went in to wake up Trigg from his nap...he didn't want to wake up...so chipmunk decided to climb up on Trigg's head....
 Chipmunk didn't do the trick...so the whole gang jumped on...needless to say, I let him sleep a little longer!
 Mr. Mike up the street brought out his trampoline, it's one of Trigg's favorite spots to stop!
 Garrett and I watching Trigg and Mom jump on the trampoline!
 We had fun celebrating Johnston Green Days, they brought out big John Deere tractors to the library lawn!
 Trigg loved them!
 More rain...and more splashing!
 and splashing!
 Watching the parade!
 and catching candy during Johnston Green Days!
 Mom and her two dudes...enjoying an evening out on the deck.
 Like father, like son, Trigg does a great job helping me mow the lawn!
...and there you go!  That been our summer so far, lots of fun and adventures...and we are only about halfway through...
Adventure is out there...let's go find it!

Still growing - Garrett 4 & 5 months!

It's been a busy summer and filled with lots of fun, and as the saying goes "time flies when you're having fun!"  Well, that holds true in the Comfort household as well, Garrett hit both the 4 and 5 month mark since I've updated the blog, so I am doing a little catch up!
We hit the big 4 month mark at the end of May.
All smiles for this dude!
Garrett is quickly stretching out, getting longer and stronger every day!  He is filled with laughs and giggles that are very contagious!
More smiles...this time with a 5 month tie...
"What's that Mom? I'm 5 months old now?!?"
We keep working on our "tummy time", still don't love it, but Garrett is getting stronger!
and loves his jump-a-roo!
Sporting our summer baseball cap!
...and of course a smile!

Tulip Time

TULIP TIME!  Heather grew up in Pella and, for her, this is the best time of the year!  We headed to Pella on Saturday for the festivities.  The dudes of the family have matching Dutch gear!  
Our little Dutch boy!
We got to the square before the parade to participate in the street scrubbing.  Buckets, yolk, brush...check!
They send the street scrubbers down the street prior to the parade starting, we are ready to go!
Water & brush...scrub away!  Trigg did a great job and had fun scrubbing the streets.
 Trigg and I in our matching gear!
 After we scrubbed, we headed over to our seats to watch the parade.
 Garrett taking it all in!
 The bands, the floats, out of the whole parade, Trigg's favorite part was the fire truck!
 The dudes!
Heather and her boys!
Heather and Garrett
The whole family!
We had a great time in Pella!  We had our picture taken a lot...mostly by people we didn't know and a few with our own camera!  Plenty of fun at Tulip Time!
