Today was Derek's birthday!!! He is 5 I can't believe it. He had a great birthday, he got transformers and a transformer t shirt and a star wars movie. He also got an ice cream cake. It was really good. Saturday we went to the new water park that President Bush dedicated. It was a lot of fun and the boys loved it. Plus they had some friends to join in on the fun. Happy Birthday Derek we love you so much!!!
These are a few things the boys did with their cousins when they visited. They all had so much fun together. They played outside, caught frogs, played at Petra's school with the scooter things, played with play dough, swimming lots and lots of swimming, they went to a few movies. They just played and played and played they all just love to play with each other. The 4th was fun too, and President Bush even came to our small town. Lynsie and I saw him and his wife driving back to the air port. I always thought they had tinted windows but you could see them. It was pretty cool! The fireworks were great too, and we had a ton of glow sticks and bracelets. I was so glad they were able to come and stay as long as they did. I love spending time with them and with Lynsie. We love you guys!!
Tyson played T-ball again this year. He had so much fun and his coach was so great. Last year I think he didn't have as much fun, the coach wasn't as good. They kind of made fun of the kids that didn't really know how to play. Well hello it is some of these kids first time to play so give them a brake. They didn't even really take the time to teach them anything. This years coach was amazing, she showed them how to do it and made them feel good even if they missed or didn't do it right. At the end of the season she got them all trophies. Tyson LOVED it and was so proud. (because a few weeks ago the boys found all Jared's trophies from growing up and they thought he was so amazing because of all the trophies he had.) So it really meant the world to Tyson to have is own trophy.
The other pictures are of this huge tree that fell across Rhonda's road.
In May we went camping in the pasture by the pond. This was our first family camp out. Oklahoma is really to hot to camp too much. Oklahoma is so different from MT, UT, ID it is hot and humid and it stays hot and humid all day and NIGHT. I am used to hot in the day and cool in the night, but not here. But May it was perfect, we all had a lot of fun. Rhonda, Petra and David didn't camp out but we all ate marshmallow and just had fun talking and watching the fire. There is just something amazing about a fire. Needless to say the boys had a blast as you can see in the pictures.
