More videos...

...because lately, I'm too lazy to write. Okay, the truth is that there really isn't anything exciting to write about. Besides the fact that spring has arrived in San Diego and I've been taking full advantage. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing it is to be able to head out to my backyard wearing my bathing suit and carrying a large beach towel, feeling the warm cement under my strangled, winterized feet. When I lie down and start the timer, the sun is immediately drawn to my black bathing suit and before two minutes have passed I'm feeling the heat...and I love it. I love the blazing light of the sun as I see it through my eyelids. I love the sounds and smells of spring represented by thousands of tree blossoms and fresh grass clippings, lawn mowers and neighborhood kids playing in a distant backyard, cocky teenage boys washing the family cars, chlorine and coconut sun block permeating the warm, tropical air. I love the low, steady hum of the bees that feast at our hilly wildflower mecca. I love the quiet that is peaceful, but not silent. I love the joy I can't contain as my body reawakens with the warmth of the sun. I love spring. And, yes, I love a good tan as well. I won't lie.

Mumbo-jumbo aside...here's the really good stuff:

This is Buddha and Bugga helping Daddy read them their bedtime story.



This is Buddha and Bugga brushing their teeth. Very entertaining...seriously. :)

I love the teeth-brushing video! How cute and hilarious! Little ones are so fun to watch! Also, I am totally jealous that you guys are having warm spring weather. Hopefully someday soon it will arrive here...!

Soren and Anders are so fun to watch! It's been so long I haven't seen them that I was surprised to hear Anders talk!!!

Oh my heck! So cute!! I love Anders faces in the middle of Soren's bedtime story. Can I send Ryan over to you to learn the bedtime routine? More movies please!!

ps- nice fancy cinematography Dan. I did feel a little queasy.

Story time was so cute! It's great to see them growing up so much, and the video captures their personalities and how much they've matured since I've last seen them. The electric toothbrushes are a good idea to keep them entertained.

NOT FAIR! I want to go out in my back yard and lay on a towel in the warm sunshine! I had gotten all excited because my bulbs were starting to push through (at least in the back yard, our house faces north and so the front yard is still under ice and snow.) Can we come and lay in your backyard?

Such cute videos! It's fun to watch kids get older and see the stuff they can do, like memorizing stories! Your kids are adorable. We are back in Copenhagen, and got the internet TODAY!!!! So now I can get back to reading blogs. I was excited to catch up on yours!
