Happy Pioneer Day!

We didn’t do anything exciting during the day on this wonderful holiday, but we did do fireworks at night. We spent lots of money because we thought the boys would enjoy them, but it turns out Dillon really didn’t like the noise and plugged his ears half the time, and Carson was done after about 3 minutes. Oh well, I had fun burning our money. At least it made some pretty colors : )!

The greatest place on earth! (at least in Dillon’s eyes)

Last week we took a trip to one of Dillon’s favorite places to be, Kennecott. He could go there and watch those trucks and machines work forever. Since then, all I hear about is how Dillon is going to drive one of those trucks when he gets older. : )

The boys checking out the trucks
Man these trucks are HUGE!!!

Proud mama

Look ma, no training wheels! I’m so proud of him, and he has done awesome without them on! We took them off his little bike so he could practice on that one first, and he did great. Then we took them off his big bike and off he went! He was so proud, and we are too! My baby is growing up ~sniff sniff~

On the “baby” bike
And the real deal…. Way to go buddy!!!

More memories

We were eating taco’s the other week and Carson keep pointing to Chris’s plate and asking for “tires”. When we finally figured it out, he was so happy to get what he was asking for : ) what a cute and imaginative little boy!

This was left on our bed on night after we put Dillon to bed. I don't know if you can see the note on the bottom but it read something like this:
"Dad I love you so I want you to have my pillow so you have a good sleep"
What a sweetheart!

The other morning I was finishing up getting ready and told Carson to go grab the cereal he wanted for breakfast. He has done this may times, and will usually pick out the one he can grab the quickest. He has never been too fussy on what he eats. He brought me frosted flakes, I said alright and headed off to the kitchen to make the boys there breakfast. To make life easier on me and Carson I just decided to grab him some captain crunch berries. It’s bigger for him and doesn’t get too soggy so it is easier for him to eat. Like I said, I have switched his cereal choice MANY times and he has never before said anything, he is just happy to eat. He was so excited for his breakfast, licking his lips and everything! Grabbed him, sat him in his highchair and he grabbed the spoon but quickly looked at me with the cutest most puzzled face; no, not that one he said. He pointed to the frosted flakes and said that one, that one please?!? It was so precious! Of course I gave him a new bowl with the frosted flakes in it, and he happily ate every last bite! That was the day I learned he knows what he wants, and how fast he is really growing up. : (

Our trip

Last weekend we took a little trip to Canada to visit my Grandparents. I also have some other family that lives there, so it was nice to visit with them too. It just so happened to be Canada day while we were there, so we spent the morning at a parade, and then headed back home for a BBQ and later to the park for some fun, with fireworks to follow. We also went to a little town called Waterton that I have been going to since I was a kid, so it was fun to go back with my kids! We enjoyed a little hike, dipping our toes in the freezing lake, and had a nice lunch at the park. What a great visit, and as all vacations do, it went by way too fast! ** a fair warning.... picture overlaod!!!! It's for me, not for you : ) **

All of us at the parade. The boys had a lot of fun getting candy and waiving at everybody, I was really surprised at how much fun they had!
