Need I say more??
Mason and Caleb
My camera ran out of batteries just as we got to the bird show. It was such a cool show. Hawks were litterally flying 2 inches over our heads. The kids loved it!!!
They gave her a dose of the sleepy stuff and it didnt even phase her. They had to give her a second dose and that worked almost immediately. She was so funny. After it was over, I had to carry her to the recovery room-she was a limp as a noodle. She tried to move and sit up and she was doing all these wierd things. They told me that she would see 2 of me and I think that freaked her out.
Poor thing had to go through all that for a 2 minute scan. Luckily all is well and we will do it again in 4 months.
I caught Caleb, about an hour later, sitting at the table staring out the window where he was buried. So sweet.
We will miss you Hammy!!
Tyson thought he was pretty cool-so did Bill.
It was so nice, he had lots and lots of helpers to open his presents!!
He wanted this Spiderman "laptop" for Christmas and didnt get it but he kept talking about it so I knew it would be the perfect present. It was a hit and he had to fight all the kids to use it. Its basically one big game, but he thinks its a real laptop and he loves to copy Bill when he is on his laptop working. Who knew $40 could buy so much happiness. (Thanks Grandma)
Tyson is the funniest kid. He is such a daddy's boy and wants to be just like him. Its no wonder because his Dad spoils him rotten. Bill and Tyson have so much in common. They both LOVE attention and get cranky when the spotlight isnt on them, they both have the Tongan temper, they love sports, and they both love to watch TV. Its so cute!!
Tyson is a fiesty little thing. He wants to do everything himself but gets frusterated if he cant do it the first time. He is going to be my kid that grows up too fast because he wants to do everyting the adults do. He also a sweet side to him-especially when it comes to his baby sister. He loves to learn and I know he is going to be a quick learner in school. He is a good friend and such a good brother (as long as you dont touch HIS toys)
Tyson has such a contagious smile. He is hard to be mad at because he will flash his big smile and it makes me crack up. He is witty and his sense of humor kills me. He says the funniest things. For example, yesterday he told Bill "when you go to a scary movie with a girl it means you are dating." The kids were watching Drake and Josh and thats what he picked up. So funny. He is always so matter of fact-like he knows it all. I just cant imagine where he picks that up from. Hmm...
We love Tyson so much are so blessed to have him in our family.
The guys were in heaven lighting all the fireworks. Anything to play with fire I guess. I was just glad no one got anything blown off-almost (Braden), but a pretty uneventful night.
Even Sandy joined in the fun!
This is the closest thing to a family 4th picture I could get at 10:30 at night-a bunch of overstimulated, overtired kids. Gotta love it!
I about had a heart attack watching Noah light these massive fireworks. I had to look away. Im a way bigger wuss than i thought. Im kinda disapointed in myself.
I attempted to take some pictures, but I couldnt get Noahs attention and Tyson refused to put on his shirt-so what are you gonna do-it wasnt worth the trouble. The ones I did take turned out OK. Maybe I will photoshop Noah in there somewhere.
The awsome aunties put together this amazing carnival for the kids-prizes and all. They always go way above and beyond for the kids. I guess thats why they are the favorites!!
Here are the kids-not so patiently waiting- for the fun to begin.
The master of ceramonies-also known as "T"
Caleb had fun just watching all that was going on. He didnt want to participate and he was happy just watching from the sidelines...until he realized that he needed tickets to get prizes. That seemed to motivate him.
Sam took charge at the obstacle course
Im not sure why, but Noah was the only one who wanted to do the "put your face in the flour" game. I forget what the purpose of the game was, but it was funny!!
The beloved "Prize Table"
They did such a good job with these prizes-the kids were in HEAVEN
Avery wasnt too interested in what was going on until they broke out the bubble machine-she was all over that.
Cowboy Tyson got this hat for his birthday and didnt take it off the whole week
This little handsome guy is the cutest thing-I had to throw a picture of him in here. He was so funny. I miss all these little kids so much
Avery the wanderer. She didnt care if anyone was around, she did what she wanted and when she wanted. We dont call her monkey for nothing-she can climb on anything and she usually does.
I think Barb had the hardest time of anyone there. Her little shadow Sophie was on her like glue-she wasnt quite sure about all these people. She has the absolute funniest personality of any kid ive ever met. She is so smart. After a while, she was loving hangin out with everyone and didnt want to miss a moment-she refused to go to bed if anyone was awake. I think she kept Barb and Blake up till 1 or 2 every night.
How can you be this sad one minute...
Then this happy the next. Gotta love girls.
This is her "Cheesy" face. Im so glad I got it on camera. She is becoming quite the ham.
Sophie got a candy bracelet and had it in her mouth all day. Every picture I took of her on this day, she had her wrist in her mouth-so funny.
Who needs a bathroom-weve got nature and an audience of about 50 people. Caleb has no shame. When you gotta go, you gotta go!!
Poor T. All that work and what does she get? Soaked!! She is such a good sport.
Such a fun trip. Its been so hard being here in Utah because I feel like im missing out on all these kids growing up and we dont get to see eachother that much. Im counting down the days until the next vacation. Thanks guys for a fun week!!! Cant wait till next year!!
