Grandpa Arlyns Birthday Party

This post has been long coming because Brent had the picture and finally emailed it to me. Grandpa Arlyns party was so enjoyable. He stayed awake and alert almost the whole time. He did fall asleep right as we were leaving. We enjoyed dinner prepared by Joyce and even enjoyed some good conversations with Grandpa(although at one point he did insist that Brent had chosen the right time to get married?) He looked better than he did in a long time and was even walking without the cane(he probably should have used it for safety sake). The best part was after dinner when he wanted to read Katie a story, he read her the entire Cinderella story only stuttering a couple of times. He started to cry in the middle of the story, I still dont know why but it was the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

What Was I Thinking?

I have been off all week because Dr Smith took a vacation. So on Tuesdsay night I decided that we were going to paint the kitchen and the cabinets. I wanted to do something fun and kay is too boring. I told him that it is not going to be like this forever but it would be fun for awhile. Finally it was decided that we would paint the cabinets white and the walls red. After three hours of taking the cabinet doors off of the wall and removing the 500 little screws that are in each one of them I already am thinking what did I start. My mom tried to warn me that I was crazy for attempting it but I did not listen. So I guess I get to go and sand all the cabinets and mask everything off before Kay gets home from work. Wish me luck.

Our Weekend

Friday Bradleys daycare had an art show and they displayed all the art projects that they had done over the summer at summer camp. We were glad that Grammy and Grandpa came with us to see all the stuff bradley has done. At daycare they have bible class so they also got up and sang some songs they had learned and recited some scripture verses they had memorized. Bradley was to shy to get up and sing so Katie took his place even though she is not even in his class, she loves the spotlight. Also on Friday my dad took Bradley on the front runner train downtown to Temple Square and to have lunch and get icecream. By the end of the day Bradley was exhausted.

Saturday we went to the zoo with all of Kays family. We had a great time and the kids loved getting together with their cousins. Katie and Bradley enjoyed the new carousel. We also had lunch and then went shoe shopping for back to school shoes. Thanks Grandma Mary and Grandpa John for such a fun day.

Our trip to Cabelas

So since Kaylan decided to go Elk hunting with his brother and step-father John this year, he thinks that we need to watch hunting on the TV 24 hours a day. Who knew there was a channel were this is indeed even possible but alas it is true. So why not add to the fun and take a trip to Cabelas. It actually is a pretty cool store with tons for the kids to look at. While Kaylan wanders aimlessly around all the guns, ammo and elk calls we can wander around and look at all the animals. Katies favorite part was feeding the fish and for some reason she was enthralled with all the stuffed bears. Bradley just sort of tagged alongside Kay as he thinks that he is getting his own gun and going hunting with him. We'll just have to see about that. The funniest part of the trip was when they decided to demonstrate some elk calls and Katie was convinced that the animals in the store were really not dead but alive and stuck to their spots with glue. She then decided to do some elk calling of her own and let out some of the highest pitch screams I have ever heard and probably 20 people turned to look at us.

Happy Birthday MOM!!

Happy Birthday Mom! Better late than never.

My moms 50th birthday was on Tuesday. We all planned a suprise party for her that night inviting her friends and some of the neighbors. Nothing went as planned but it turned out well anyway. I think she had actually even had fun.

Race Cars

We just spent the last hour and a half driving the race car around the parking lot. Bradley invited his friend over who has never driven it before and they would not come home. The boys have a ton of fun but its hot and I just cant sit there and watch them drive in circles in the church parking lot. Katie was riding her bike around and it was making me so nervous that the boys were going to hit her.
