Camping ( Lake Cascade)

Daigen riding his bike. it was too cute to watch cuz Daigen would ride his bike while CJ ran after him. They got EXTREMELY dirty, if you click on the pic you can see there "dirty dawg" faces!
"Man i L.O.V.E. this place Aunt Cala!!" Payten was such a happy baby and did soooo good!
Daigen cookin smores with Aunt Tashie.
our first night chillin out eating smores around the fire
Enjoying their smores... I swear I think they had 3 each... they were in "little boy heaven"
next day... the boys playing in the sand on the beach... they were having a blast
catchin a few rays... my bro and his family went camping on the other side of the lake about 40 min away so they packed up early and came and hung out with us for the afternoon it was alot of fun
Dan taking Bosten out for a "dip"
sunset view... it was soooo pretty, we were suppose to have "lake access" from our spot. well we did, however it's been a few years since they have seen much water that far up, but the boys loved all the little frogs we found. there was hundreds of them
Bosten having fun on Daddy's shoulders. he has become such a little Daddy's boy!!
our last evening right before a big thunderstorm
the men cookin us breakfast... I love camping... i didn't have to cook for 2 days!!!!
our camp site
Ashley, Bosten, tash and payten trying to stay warm while we were waiting for breakfast. I think Dave was down fishing.
We had quite a fun time. We spent two nights camping and the boys loved it. It really wasn't as bad as i thought it might be. Uncle dave and Aunt Ashley came with us and we told Coltrin's about us coming so last minute they decided to come with us as well. It was sooo much fun. We just went up to Cascade on the lake. The bee's were HORRID! I have NEVER in my life seen so many. Poor little Payten was the only one to get stung, but she was a little trooper. Thanks everyone we had fun... can't wait for next summer so we can pack our weekends full of camping!!

Daigen played a "fishin" game AND he WON!!! he was soooo excited and won a little stuffed animal
This was Daigen's FAVORITE ride. It was the "Bee Roller Coaster"he LOVEDit and rode it alot click on the pic to actually see his face.... it is priceless he was screaming the whole time and was in LOVE... I was laughing so hard. Daddy even went and took Bosten, who believe it or not loved it as well.

No kisses from this one, but he did give loves...

Bosten's turn.... he loved the rides as well and did really good.

We had a blast this year at the fair. We went on family day and we were there for over 6 hrs. The boys did great and loved the rides and animals. It was so fun year to see how excited they get for these things. It makes me so thankful for my cute little family and the fun we have together. We even got to run into our dear friends the Hibbert's while we were there and we all rode the train together. We have had a fantastic summer and have plenty more posts to come as we took advantage of the last few weekends left of summer....stay tuned for more advntures from us...

Daigen's 3rd Birthday Party

We started out swimming at my sister's neighborhood pool
He loves to swim.... he is our little fish!!
Of course the theme was "Thomas & Friends" his next favorite thing.

And we had pizza for dinner....... his favorite thing to eat..... other than cake and ice cream

We invited all his cousins on my side and Grandma Clark made a special trip all the way from Shelley to be here for the big event. he was soooooo excited.
He got a new "big boy" bike from Mom & Dad, which he finally LOVES and is rather good and fast on it already. Mommy had a hard time the first time I saw him riding, I had to wipe the tears away. I can't believe how big he is.... they grow way too fast.

Opening up presents, here is a puzzle that he loves so much
Uncle "Dab" & Aunt "Ashwee" got him his own camping chair, he was in seventh heaven when we went camping the next week.
We had a Thomas the Train Pinata for the kids
Here is my favorite part, I think his cake turned out so cute..... thank you Albertsons!!! :)
Showing off his cake with Daddy
Making his wish......................

We had a fantastic time!! Can't believe he is 3 already and he starts pre-k tuesday, where does time go? Thanks to all that helped and came, we love you all......
