Recent going's on

The last couple of weeks have been really busy. Last week Chad was off so we decided to spend the time with the kids. On Monday we took the kids to the Hill Aerospace Museum. They really like all of the airplanes.

We also took them to the dinosaur park. Their favorite part of that was the playground and the sand that they could brush away and look for bones.

We took the kids to Lagoon on Thursday. The kids had a great time but I've decided I'm just to old to enjoy Lagoon anymore. I had forgot to take my camera into the park but I took these pics when we got home. The kids were so tired.

I had to include this picture. Jared actually took this even though he knows he isn't allowed to touch my camera. Anthony and Kaleigh have always had a close relationship. Even when she was just little, he would sit and hold her hand in the car.

I took this video a couple of weeks ago. Chad's dad has alsheimers but this day was a really good day for him. I especiall love how Kaleigh takes his arm and puts it around her.

The 4th, Jared's birthday and the Zoo.

We've had a busy weekend. On the 3rd we went to Granny and Gramps and had a weinie roast. We cooked hot dogs over the fire and ate lots! The kids did smoke bombs and when it got dark enough we did fireworks. Cole and Herbie came home for the week which worked out great. Dad had to have hip relpacement surgery on the 29th and they were there to help my mom.

On the 4th we took the kids to the North Ogden Cherry Day's parade. They liked it mostly because they got lots of candy. That night we went with Lill and Kris to Barker Park and watched the fireworks. We also ended up loosing Jared. He took off and it was dark. It took us a good half hour to find him. Next year we are buying those glow sticks and making a pattern on him so if he does run off we can find him.

On Sunday we celebrated Jared's 5th birthday. He was really excited to open his presents. We got him a garbage truck and Deisel 10. He's from the Thomas and friends collection. He's the naughty and mean train and he's Jared's favorite. Go figure.

On Monday we went to Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake. It was really fun but extremely hot.
