Brothers from another Mother??

So fun to see these Boys and their Sons as such good 'buddies"



With a Rebel Yell!

We were able to watch our cousin Cole play in his homecoming football game and they CRUSHED the opponents! Go Rebels!
Cole with his biggest fan, Aiden.
Cousin Luke was there too and the boys had a blast letting him chase them around.
Jack some how dodged my camera....he must have been extra fast that night.

Officially a 5 year old!

 He woke up on his birthday (9/25) and with the biggest grin asked, "Am I five right NOW?"
Here is a couple pics of him with his birthday treats.
Here is to hoping your wish comes true! Love you Aiden!

Birthday Party!!!

Aiden got to invite 3 boys to come over to play for a 'birthday party' on Saturday morning. And it was so much fun! What a treat to spend some time with good friends!

Hard at work coloring!
And thank goodness we had some super heros armed with silly string around to go fight some bad guys that showed up.
 Aiden's birthday is Sept 25th - a BIG 5 year old! (The costume is compliments of Grandma and Grandpa).
Hard to focus with silly string in our hands

The Super hero crew! 
Dark Night (aka Jack), Superman (aka Aiden), Robin (aka Sullivan), Batman (aka Tyson) and Superman II (aka Jonah)
Of course I had throw a picture in with Graem!

The Hiking Club....

We took Grandpa and Grandma hiking in Camden!
Myself with the 3 adventurers at the scenic overview
 One could hardly keep up with these two...
 although Graem tried his hardest....
 Jack and Grandma went over the hill and thru the woods.
 Grandpa and 2 of his grandsons checking things out!
We had an awesome day filled with wonderful weather, a couple of hikes, playing on the playground and a nice picnic.

The Great Pumpkin Adventure!

We are lucky to have some help this week with Grandma and Grandpa in town! And just in time for Aiden's 5th Birthday Party this coming weekend.

We visited the pumpkin patch/apple orchard in Vesta last weekend.
"The Gang" getting ready to take a hayride to the pumpkin patch.
Graem found a pumpkin and wouldn't let it go! While Aiden and Jack found a BIG pumpkin to show Grandpa.

We found one that was just the right size although we were overall more interested in the apples than the pumpkin. Oh how we love apple season! We have been abiding by the 'apple a day' rule, have you?

Who knew that cookie monster and the mustang were friends?

Jack and his buddy Henry found the costume bin.....silly boys anxious for Halloween!

Kids of Summer 2012

Emily said it best, "this is the first time we knew were all 6 kids were!"
We are so lucky to have such AWESOME cabin neighbors!

Marshall or Mexico??

We sure are glad that Aunt Bop-A-Dee and her friend Jayson chose Marshall.....I mean is there even an option? Where would you rather spend your labor day weekend?
Thanks Bop and Jay for coming out and spending time with us!
Taking the canoe out hoping to paddle to a place where the fish would bite - good thing we had a back up for dinner.
Staying true to ASU! Fork Em! must be young love if they are willing to squeeze into a tube together

This was a weekend filled of first's for Jayson....
First time in the Midwest (SD and MN) don't ya know?
First time waking up with an awful hangover - wait I am sure he has done that before but has he done it off of spending ONLY $9?
First time tubing
First time wakeboarding (sorry didn't get a picture of that one)
We are hoping he comes back!

Graem fell asleep at the wheel....
Jack getting brave on the tube with Aunt Bop-A-Dee
