Lance and his brother Aaron decided to take all the boys on a little off road camping trip. The boys had so much fun playing and being with their cousins. Anytime, Lance wants to take the boys for a couple nights, I have no arguments. I am so glad Lance was able to get away with his brother and that my boys were able to get to know their cousins a little better. There is not anything that brings males closer together then dirt,off roading and the great outdoors.

It's a wonderful life

Today Lance and I celebrate 14 years of marriage. It has truly been amazing. He is a very kind, devoted and loving husband. I feel as if I love him more now then ever. I still get so excited when he comes home from work. I also still love to get dressed up for him. It was hard work for Lance and I to get married so young but together we have conquered tremendous obstacles. Lance is also a wonderful father. It just dosent get any better then being married to my husband. Lance, I love you and would do it all over again.

Kickball 101

We finally had a free saturday afternoon. It was great the kids played outside and we finished up things that had to be done around the house. As soon as Lance was done changing the oil, it was game time. He decided to teach the boys how to properly play the game of kickball. Lance often goes to the boys school at lunchtime and plays with them at recess. Many of the kids come running out when they see Lance because he has coached so many of them in different sports. He is a great dad and always uses his free time to be with our children. Now the boys are ready to dominate on the field at recess!!!!

Hailey vs. Mandy

Hailey got a new playhouse for her birthday. Her birthday is not until July but we decided to put it together early. She has had so much fun in it. The only problem is Mandy thinks it is her house. She is always in it and trying to chew up things. So, Hailey put up a little wood board to keep Mandy out. Although all Mandy has to do is jump over it. Mandy does listen when Hailey tells her to get out. It is kind of a funny battle.

By the way......

Yesterday at Kiely's graduation she recieved the highest achievement award. There were only 14 who recieved this award out of 400 students. The students had to maintain a 4.0 through there two years of junior high and display leadership qualities. I just had to add that in, a parent has a right to brag about there kids.

My cute girl

I just love my daughter. I simply adore her and today she graduates from junior high. I cant believe it. Time really does go by so quickly. The older my kids get , the more I realize I wish they would stay little longer. This morning I thought to myself , I only have four years left with Kiely in my house and it made me sad. She has brought so much joy into our family. Congratulations Kiely! Your dad and I are very proud of you.

Hailey's first performance

Strike a pose

Ballet buddies

Hailey, Nana, and Tata

Hailey has been waiting a long time to be up on stage. She has been watching her sister perform for many years. Hailey had a great time and was such a ham. During one of her performances her tutu started falling, they pulled her backstage and fixed it. When she came back out she recieved her own applause. Hailey is a natural performer. It was so, so , so cute to watch her on stage.
