I don’t have any inspiration for a title or good way to make all of these pictures seem interesting but I do want to remember them and remember the fun we had this week. I’ve got about 20 pictures that want to be on this blog and that is with combining some pictures into collages so… Here we go.
This is Raymond and Allie – She is our cute neighbor that is Ray’s age. She is super social and Ray loves her. If he see’s her outside he starts yelling her name. This day she came over and they were chasing the dog and running around. I think Ray was even showing off a little!
Everyone loves checking on the garden with Dad! (why don’t they like helping with my chores??)
Ben and I are the Wolf Den Leaders – these are our cub scouts playing a game. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the boys Benji’s age and see the different personalities.
Cali loved her last day of Preschool! She is so ready for Kindergarten. She knows her letters and their sounds and can even count to 100. She can read some words and she just loves learning. Maybe having a late birthday won’t be so bad.
While Cali was at her last day of school I took the 3 littlest ones on a bike ride. We rode over to the pond behind Lone Peak High School. I let the kids get out and we fed the ducks and Rose and Ray ended up swimming in their clothes because it was such a nice day. After school Rose wanted to show everyone else the pond so we drove over for round 2 that afternoon.
Millie continues to get big – here she is standing up, with help of course BUT she is bending and crawling and standing! It always amazes me.
On Friday night we went to Pete and Amanda’s for a campfire! We had a Dutch Oven Dinner and then S’mores! The weather was great. The kids loved running around in their yard. We love living close to family!
Saturday started off rainy – so I slept in with the little kids while Benji and Ben went to their 8am game and BENJI SCORED A GOAL! Of course he does it on a game I don’t go to! He got a great pass from Kael and then he one touched it into the corner! He was so excited. We were excited for him and we all got ICE CREAM. (and an extra picture of Ray because 2 year old boys are just cute with ice cream all over their face.)
We organized the garage on Saturday. We are selling the 2003 Honda Rebel if anyone is interested. And here is Ben on his “new” 1981.
And that evening Ben and I got to go to the RSL soccer game! The games are so fun! Brady and Monique went with us and had seats close to ours. Mario and Shannon were next to us in the company seats. RSL games are one of my favorite date nights.
We got to DOG sit for LaNell. Moki was at our house on Sunday and Monday. She was a good dog.
Millie’s latest trick is spitting lips. She loves it. She drools like crazy but it is cute.
Benji started working on a fort in his bedroom on Friday. On Sunday he was still trying to make it better so Brady and I went in and fixed it up for him. The kids loved it. They watched a movie in it and all 5 of the ‘big’ kids slept in it Sunday night.
Brady stayed over late on Saturday night and then Brady and Sean and Casey came over for Sunday dinner. We taught those guys King of Tokyo – I think Brady finally got a win on his 6th game so that is what inspired this picture.
We also did Sunday tricks of course. Sean had a pretty bad ear infection so it was a pretty chill night. AND Rose gave her first talk in primary! She did very well. She talked right into the microphone and said that following the prophet is like “following the Leader”.
This picture of Raymond’s foot is my only picture from Memorial Day! I hate when i do that. I guess we were having to much fun. Ben took the kids to their favorite donut store and then made food for the BBQ. I cleaned. Benji played Hearthstone. The girls colored. I took Raymond on a bike ride and let him show me all of the flags. At 1:00 we went over to the school and played soccer. First it was just our kids. Then the Falabella’s came. Then Brady, Sean and Casey and 2 of their friends. It was a fun game. Benji actually played! Packer decided he likes playing goalie. The babies lasted about 2 hours so that was good. When it was time to go Ray was out of control and crying and just kept repeating the word “hot” – When we got home we realized that he had burnt his little feet on the hot black top!! Both feet look like this 🙁 Luckily he is tough and has barely complained! After soccer we hurried over to Mom and Dad’s house for a BBQ!! Grandma and Grandpa Becker were there! Pete’s Family, Matt’s Family, Michelle’s Family, us and Kiah and Micah. We had a great time and I wish we had pictures. We ate and played. Ben got the game Telestrations as a late bday gift so we ended up playing 4-5 rounds of that. The nieces and nephews really enjoyed the game as well. We got home, threw the kids in bed :), and crashed.
