It's hard to believe that the summer is almost over. Both of the grandson's are now officially in their "terrible twos". Although I do have to say that thankfully, there has not been all the temper tantrums, usually just the pouting and not wanting to do what you want them to do.
Here are some pictures from Ian's and Gabe's birthday parties.
Ian wasn't too happy with us singing Happy Birthday. He wanted his Cars Cake.

All his presents from his huge family.
