Tyden's 1st day of Preschool!

Well I did it and only one of us cried. Not me, him. It was sad. Miss Karen told me to give him a hug and a kiss and go. I had to give her the whole talk about his allergies. It is such a pain in the butt. This little boy Tyler walked right in and started telling Tyden about his airplane. He was cute. I think that he will be just fine.

These were obviously taken prior to the crying.

Look Above

I've decided to try and sell pures. These are the same bags that they sell in the kiosks in the malls just 1/2 the price. Let me know if you would be interested in ordering some and I will send you an e-mail with a more descriptive list of the bags. Check out the Sildeshow above. I also can sell all of that cute luggage with the polka dots and bows.

These are my fav!

Petting Zoo

Today we decided to take a trip down to Gardner Village to check out the Petting Zoo. We knew that they had Pony rides and Tyden has been begging me to let him ride a horse ever since he has become obsessed with the Spirit movie. I should mention at a recent allergy test we discovered that he is allergic to Horses just as much as he is allergic to peanuts and eggs. I don't believe it though. I loaded him up on Zyrtec before we left and he was fine. I'm not going to keep him for experiencing things that I did when I was a little girl. We had horses. Anyway, Pierce and Tyden started out with the Pony Rides. They both loved it. Tyden wanted the horse with the blue bucket and Pierce wanted the one with the green bucket. After the rides we went into the corral. There are little goats everywhere. Hadlee didn't know where to go. She was too excited and Pierce fell in love with this one goat. Tyden kept going around to all of the animals and saying "Guys, come here and look at this." On the way over he asked Kari if there would be pigs, turtles, fish and sharks. He was happy to see one of his requests. The pigs there are huge and they have this giant sow named Sally. It was cute to watch them all walk around checking out everything. I tried to get Mikelle to put Brockie down so I could get a picture of him by the goat but she wouldn't go for it.

Pierce's LOVE

For Elder Richmond


Mom and I thought that you would like this. He climbed up on it all by himself. We are just going to give it to him. I hope that you don't mind too much. You never ride it anyway.

Our Little Miss Van Gogh

After the boys got home from Father and Sons (sorry men don't take pictures) they decided to ALL take naps including the kids. Kari and I thought that we could sneak a quick trip to Dillard's in. When we got back Justin was on the porch and Hadlee was down stairs taking a crayon to the door. After I freaked and got it cleaned up, a few hours later I found this.....

This pink dresser is the one I caught Tyden coloring on when it was white, in our room and he was about Hadlee's age. I have never had a problem since.....until Van Gogh decided to grace us with his presence. We are so privileged!

This is Tyden imitating the synchronized divers for the USA! He was amazed at what they were doing. I'm glad that he kept doing it so I could get it on tape. Maybe one day he will be getting a gold metal in diving. Or he could be the next Michael Phelps. He likes to watch him swim..

Dad's "Belated" Birthday

Friday the the 8th was my Dad's 52nd birthday. We went up to Mom and Dad's for dinner and gifts. Uncle Steve and Debbie had come into town for his birthday and a ride. I know that my dad wont read this but I want him to know how much I love him. He is and has been the best Daddy. He loves my children so much and has always shown them that. He loves my mother and we know that. Some of you know he is a little extreme in expressing that love but I am thankful that I know if. I love you Daddy.

I found these matching shorts for Tyden on "Mall Day." Dad bought his when he went on the cruise to Tahiti.

Dad was giving Tyden a high-five because he liked his gift.

Helping Bompa or Pompa blow out the candles on his orange cake that he made him. MMM Tasty!

Hugging Bompa

This one is for Uncle Kenny! He climed up on his own and was making the motor sounds. Kenny thinks that Dad is going to buy him one when he gets home from his mission.

Isn't he cute?

I just thought that I would share this picture of my brother, Kenny. He just barely sent my mom some CDs with pictures from his mission. I love this one. The primary kids wanted the missionaries to lead the 4th of July bike parade. They decorated the bikes for them. Isn't it cute? This is a typical Kenny thing, starting out with a wheelie. The kids wanted him to do it.

I'm just so proud of Kenny. I can already see that he is changing and growing so much. He is such a good boy. He is doing a GREAT job out there and he is such a good example for my children; especially Tyden.

Scooter Thief

Hadlee is a scooter thief. Mom and Dad bought Tyden this scooter as a present for a good soccer season. He is such a big boy. He loves it. They tried to find an orange one but could only find his second favorite color, blue.
