Time for a haircut?

Need I say more?

Goodbye Preschool!

Yeah! I offically have a Kindergartener! Abs had her last day of preschool last Friday. Her teacher made all of the kids in the class a memory book and totally started crying when she gave them out. It was so sweet! It almost made my pregnant self cry. Abbie has really loved this preschool and I have really loved having her go 5 days per week. She is excited to be staying home with me this summer (yipee), but at the same time very excited about starting Kindergarten in September. She said to me the other day that she was nervous about starting Kindergarten because she didn't want any of the kids to bump into her. I don't think I can promise her that that won't happen!

Camping Trip

Getting ready to go hiking
The kids had been so excited all week about having "white donuts" for breakfast when we go camping.
This is Landons version of Smores. Put three uncooked marshmallows on a stick and eat.

Last weekend Mike and I decided to take the kids and go camping. We didn't leave until 5:00, but the campsite was only 30 minutes away. We had a great time hiking, making smores and watching a movie in the tent. The kids didn't fall asleep until around 11:00, and for Landon that was only after some much needed Benadryl. I mean don't get me wrong, it was fun, but not as much fun as watching Mike, Aaron and Erik try to kill the Raccoons. We definitely prefer to go with friends.

Off Line and Out of the Loop!

So, we have not had phone or internet for the past 2 weeks (thank you Qwest) and I have really been struggling not being able to get any email, or check any blogs. It's been torture let me tell you! Now we're back on line and here's what we've been up to!Landon was busy at wotk one day. He came in and was yelling "I show you, I show you." This is what he wanted to show me...that he had put all of the letter magnets with their coordinating colors. He was very proud and even posed for a picture.
Landon was invited to his first Birthday party on the 10th of May! It was for a mutual friend of Abbie and Landon's so Abs got to go too. We went bowling. Of course Abbie is a pro, but it was Landons first time. It was pretty cute!

The kids and I on Mother's Day. I think I had just woken up from a nap! This is my delicious chocolate cake that Abbie picked out for me at the store (complete with candy sprinkles) and that Mike made. Mike on Mother's Day. He looks pretty tired huh? The kids and I have been spending a lot of time outdoors, especially at the local parks. It really makes the time pass quickly and it's something that they can do on their own. I just have to drive them there and then sit in the sun!
And finally, Abbie has been working towards the ultimate goal of getting to buy Alvin and the Chipmunks. She had to earn 100 stickers by doing things "Happy and Fast" when we ask. It took her about two months, but she finally did it! It was a very exciting day and I was so proud of her.
