Man I am feeling first born is now in Preschool! (this is a little late, he started like 3 weeks ago. oops!) He LOVES it! That is probably an understatement. He goes 3 days a week and on the last day of the week he is already counting down till the first day of the school week for the next week. :) He has so much fun with his teacher and the other boys in the class. ( all 7 other boys! NO girls)

I am so glad he enjoys school so much, I wonder how long that will last. :) I am just going to enjoy this right now as much as he does. :)

4 fun days...

We had 4 fun filled days a few weeks ago. We were lucky enough to have our friends the Lee's come and stay with us. We all miss getting to see them more, so when they come to town and want to stay with us we are all up for it. They daddies didn't have as much fun as the mommies or the kiddos but that's ok...right? :)

We had a few free tickets for the kids to go and play at pump it up! And since Porter and Anastyn weren't able to make it for the boys birthday party we decided to make the trip over there. They all had a pretty good time.

Cy found this big basketball to play with and of course kept going back for more. :)

The big boys LOVED the big slides of course, not sure the little ones even ever went down the slides.

Porter was like a monkey in this thing! He LOVED climbing up it to go down the huge slide at the top.

From this picture it makes it look like Ryken liked it too... not so much, he isn't as brave as Porter so he didn't make it all the way up.

This floor thing was a HUGE hit for all the kids. Even the moms that were there liked it. I think Gina and I both wished we had one of our own at our houses. :)

When we switched rooms there was an even BIGGER basketball in that big for Cy to even pick up, so he settled for rolling it around. :)

These two really are TOO cute! :)

Had some fun outside playing in the water.

Ryken had SO much fun when Porter was here.

The younger ones wanted to go out to play...I told Cy do not get in the water because you don't have you swimsuit thing you know I look out and he is in the pool fully clothed. :)

So we just went with it and let him play anyways. :)

This kids had tons of fun during those 4 days, we were sad when it was all over.

The mommies had some fun too of course. One night we got out and went to dinner with alot of girlfriends of Gina's that met up with us, Gina being the awesome person she is painted my toenails and of course they turned out gorgeous! WE had a late night QT run on the way home from our girls night, and also had a Yogurt land run as well as a DQ run! Thanks again Lee's for coming and staying those 4 days with us! We LOVED it and hope you guys had some fun too. :)

Swimming lessons take two...

Well the second session of swimming lessons is over this summer for Ryken. He had tons of fun this time around too! Makes me wish there was another session for him to do. :) But that will have to wait for next summer. (then we can see how Cy does, I am sure that will be another challenge, good thing we have awhile till it happens. ) :) This time around it was Beginner level 2 and he learned a few new things but mostly just tried to get better at the things he learned in the beginner level 1. He isn't going pro anytime soon but he sure made his mommy and daddy happy with the things that he did learn and the things he tried his best at.

Miss Erin, Ryken and Mr. Marshmellow!!

Jumping in ready to try his best at swimming across the pool, he wasn't the best at going straight on this, but he did make it there eventually. :)

YAY! Passed Level 2 now next year he can go to Intermediate! We may have to take another refresher class of level 2 just to make sure. :)
