For Carters b-day this year we took him to the zoo. We invited both sides of the family to come and we had a pretty good turn out.. It was a nice hot day and the kids had blast... Camden and Carter chillin on the lions..
Me and Preston on the train ride.
Some of the group...
Gotta see how Carter measured up...
Camden On the merry-go-round..
Carter On the merry-go-round..
Preston On the merry-go-round.. He loved this had so much fun and just grinned the whole time..
My little man is now 3.. He is so big and fun. He loves to follow his big brother around and try and do everything he does.. We are so glad he is in our lives..
Our attempt (well Nate's) to make a cake.. I don't do cakes.. I just can't do them. If you want a square cake with frosting then I'm your gal. But something cute I just can't do.. Well Nate wanted to try and make the cake this year.. Of course Carter wanted a monkey cake, Nate said no problem. Well it was a monkey cake under all that frosting.. But after spending the day at the zoo and not giving us enough time to decorate and the frosting not working like it should. This is what Carter got.. And do you know what.. He loved it.. He still called it his monkey cake (he had seen the monkey under the frosting..) And hey it's tasted great..
Opening some presents.. Kid sure did get spoiled.. And of course he's been waiting all year long for his b-day so he could have a pinata.. The prized b-day present.. His new bike.. He loves riding his new bike.. He even rode around the whole golf course last week with it.. 3 miles ain't bad for this awesome 3 year old.
It all started with one little girls dream..... Well o.k. she is not a little girl but she is 4.10' My amazing friend Lindsay wanted us gals to all run a 5k this year. We said sure sign us up.. Little did we know what sort of race she would be signing us up for.. Anyone heard of a little race call The Dirty Dash? Well I hadn't ever heard of it. And let me tell you, it's a race you wont forget and you'll never be clean again..
It all started with us making shirts for the race.. I'm thinking really we are dressing up, man was I surprised at everyone who dressed up..
Me and Lindsay being crazy..
Race Day.. Oh yeah we are looking good and ready to run.
The back side.. Had to dress up the whole shirt.
The start of the race, oh yes up hill in mud... Then you kept going up hill then you had to jump over hay stacks, followed by more mud and then crawling through tunnels, which was followed by more mud and climbing over wood fences. Oh and in the mud you had freezing cold water blowing on you..
At this point we were a little dirty but not bad, we had to run through a bunch more mud and then we were running/walking up and down hills. It got a little dirty here.. Well before this we had to climb up a big mud area, which was so slippery you were sliding all over and then you had to run/jump/slide down a big ol' bouncy thing. (which by the way was the funniest part of the race).. After this mud pit you had to pretty much crawl through a alot of more mud..
The after pic.. Oh yeah we were a little dirty.. (well I was probably the cleanest) It was so much fun we are for sure doing it next year..
The happy muddy gals... (oh and anything I had on that was white *bra, tanktop* um yeah it is no longer white and will never look the same..)
Just some cute pics... My niece and I went and visited my dad in the nursing home last week. We had a good visit and she took some cute pics.. He also just celebrated his 69th birthday last Sat.. Happy Birthday dad..
Heather and Papa.. She recently got married last year and her last name is now Browning so she had to sport the Browning hat..
Camden and Papa.. (They all wanted to wear his hat)
Carter and Papa.. (when asking Carter who's boy are you , he always says "Papa's boy")
Got a hold of Heathers camera and took a pic of me and carter..
