New Fun Stuff

First we have a few pictures from the boys first run through the sprinklers this year. Owen thinks they are pretty great!
Jack thought it was pretty funny as well. I got great video of this but computer problems are still preventing those from getting uploaded.
Owen running away from the water.
Being silly.
Last weekend for the long weekend we went camping up north. Tracy gave Jack this cool net to catch all the tent worms that invaded. He was excited about it!
Owen stealing Jake's little 4-wheeler.
Jack playing outside.
Owen going down Ayden's slide.
We spent a lot of hours at this slide.
Jack trying out Tracy's 4-wheeler. He loves this thing!
Neil with his cup for the Beer Olympics. Sadly he won the gold trophy for the second year in a row. Luckily he hasn't asked to put his trophy in the house either year!
The boys playing on Tracy's 4-wheeler. Check out their sweet garage in their camper behind them (yes, that is a sliding glass door IN THEIR CAMPER. so cool!).
Infestation of power wheels.
Baby attack! There were 11 kids there and there were only two older than Jack. It was a little nuts!
The boys watching Daddy on his dirt bike.
Wyatt in his jumperoo.
Tracy showing everyone how to get a 4-wheeler REALLY muddy.
Owen noticing the tent worms for the first time.
Getting ready to poke it!
Proud of himself.
More tent worm action. Jack is amazed that Owen is willing to touch them since he was afraid to touch them.
The boys with Daddy down by the river.
Jack practicing for his senior pictures down by the river.
Daddy and Owen by the river.
Jack in Daddy's hat.
Stunt rider.
Owen notices someone cute in that chrome.
Getting even trickier.
Owen still loving the baby in the mirror.
Apparently he was funny.
Nice picture of the camp from up on the hill that Paul took.
Today we moved Jack into a twin size bed. He was pretty excited about it!

Haircuts are NO FUN!

Today was hair cut day. Jack has always liked haircuts and does really well and sits still in the seat. Owen is not so fond of them. I have to take "before" pictures so after the trauma of an Owen haircut I can remember WHY I subject myself to the torture. Today Owen only got the front trimmed because I couldn't get him to stop SCREAMING in the barber shop. Here are the "before" shots!
This outfit is from Grandma and Jack was wearing it for the first time today. He immediately spilled ketchup all down the front. I ran to Kroger and got some Shout and it actually came clean so now I can dress him up in it again. I love it!
"After" pictures to come!

We Still Exist!

It has been quite awhile and a lot has happened since I last blogged. My computer decided it no longer wanted to work so I have been without it for a couple of weeks now. I just got it back last night and I still don't have my photo editing software so picking out pictures for this post was slim pickings! After I last posted we went to Iowa for Neil's cousin Cassie's wedding. While we were there Jack tortured small kittens (by torture I mean he wanted to pet them CONSTANTLY but we wouldn't let him) with his "cousin" (Neil's cousins daughter) Samantha.
Here is Jack, Samantha, Owen's butt and Samantha's brother, Jackson hanging out at the farm. Owen is petting a cat.
The boys checked out the totally weird shower at Grandma and Grandpa's hotel room. This is possibly the dumbest design ever.
The boys got dressed up in suits for the wedding, which is always cute!
Ah, all of us together. A rare shot!
Owen hanging out at the reception.
Cute kid, huh?
Neil's cousin Torrie with her sweet little guy, Blake
This is how the night ended for Owen. He tried to dance the night away but it was a bit much for a little guy!
We got to swim at the hotel which gave Jack a reason to show off his cool floaty suit (not to mention those lovely chicken legs)
Neils cousin Chris with his daughter Paige and wife Miranda.
When we came home we were busy setting up for the garage sale we held this past weekend. Daddy was left in charge of dinner one night. Big mistake!
Sunday we went to the Zoo with Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Sarah. Here are the boys with Grandma and Grandpa.
Owen was in love with this fish display. He managed to do a face plant on the sidewalk last weekend so his nose is all scraped up in the rest of these pictures.
Owen checking out an orange frog.
Owen and frog.
Owen taking a rest at the Zoo.
Aunt Sarah helping Owen ride a fake turtle.
The boys in the underwater polar bear and seal exhibit.
Watching the seals.
Jack touching the ice wall near the polar bears.
Aunt Sarah and Owen in front of the tigers.
Grandpa and Jack riding the train (and loving it!)
Hopefully I can keep on posting depending on the computer situation. I will update soon one way or another. This weekend we are going camping (hopefully I will update before then) so I will have more pictures next week for sure!
