We just had dinner and I saw Cade out of the corner of my eye leaning over the side of his chair. Then it happened...pssbbttt. I didn't think much of it at the time, until he did The Lean again and riped another one. I was like..."Where did he learn that from?" Shannon of course looks right at me and says "From his Daddy!". Like father like son! Or like Papa like Grandson! We had quite a good laugh. I guess kids really do watch everything you do. We'll have to teach him Uncle Jared's gun cocking move next.
She's in speech therapy. Honest! Well, schools out, and I guess her brain is beginning to turn to mush again! Someday she'll know the song and sing it correctly...and not put any of daddy's fun play on words in it either!
This is what her pretty much 'deaf' grandpa had to say to this video:
Cute! Her eloquence matches my hearing perfectly
It's alwasy fun when Daddy comes home....Really, that's the only time we have fun! Mommy is so boring! Look what fun we have with him!
Daddy is having tons of fun with his new nerf toy. The kids are enjoying it too!
Cade takes one in the gut.
David came home with a fun little surprise...for himself. He got a nerf type of gun that fires darts with suction cups on the ends. He's had fun firing them and having the kids go crazy with all the fun. They even gather the darts up after the gun is empty and brings them to him to reload and fire again.

Waiting patiently during the graduation...and for some yummy treats they're serving.
David and Cade running around at Kaylee's Graduation.
Cade the cheese!
What's gotten into him?! perfect!
Cade is into 'squishing' faces lately. He gets such a kick out of it. And who couldn't resist squishing David's face...what a hunk!
On Monday we had a new nephew born on my side of the family. My brother and his wife and their 4 kids (1 boy and 3 girls) had a little boy....Sam. He's had a hard start...he's in the special care unit with a low blood sugar count, rapid breathing and an infection. They seem to believe it might be pneumonia. Looks like he might be there until next week. His little body is trying to get the infection out and he's working so hard. Sweet little Sam.
Kaylee gave a great show on the side of the tent. She was pretending to be two people...you can see when she turns off the light that she asks if the 'other person' is scared and agrees to turn the light back on. I love the sound effects!
David and Kaylee on a little hike. Kaylee enjoying her little flashlight....notice the princesses!
Daddy and Daughter on a rock.
We're going on a bear hunt!........someone in the past made this little structure. Kaylee had some fun exploring.
grrrrr......where's the bear?
remember....don't feed the bears or they'll follow you home!
Kaylee and her flashlights....enjoying time by the fire with Daddy.

We tried ebay for a bit, but never seemed to win any bidding wars and decided to try Amazon. I watched the price for a while on a few different models...they went cheaper and then rose in price.
I fought back and forth which Dyson model would work best. It came down to attachments and some features that let me to the Dyson DC17 Animal. It's made for homes with animals...but aren't kids close enough?
We got it from Amazon...refurbished...and it arrived today! I took it for a little stroll around the house to help orientate it with it's new home.
I'm pretty excited to have a high quality vacuum finally.
I get complimented that my pregnant belly is so cute....and I think it is...I don't seem to share any of myself with the baby...it's all out front. But it's so darn uncomfortable. I have an extra appendage sticking out and it's right above my center of gravity. That cuteness takes it toll on me. I'm getting slower and slower every day...and I have 2 months left. I'll be down to a crawl by the end.
Our little mister also has enjoyed his own personal trampoline on my poor bladder. It'll be nice when he finally turns and is head down. I swear too, that he's taking more than his part of my energy. He's a little energy hog....I just get the leftovers. That's ok. I love my naps when I can get them.
These bubbles were the ones from Gymboree...the ones with a sugar base and they last FOREVER. Even after being there an hour there were still bubbles all over on the floor. They also seemed to just float in the air. It was so neat! I'm gonna have to go and get some of these. Much funner than the normal bubbles you buy at the store.
After telling them that the bubbles were 'sugar bubbles' they tried eating them. Tasty? I'm not sure.
Popping the bubbles on the table with their little 'fangers'
I put Cade to work cleaning up any bubble residue left on the tile. He's such a great helper.
David got me such a wonderful card for Mothers Day. He said it was PERFECT for what he wanted to say!
"She's a kind and loving mother,
the joy of my life.
She's the woman of my dreams,
my closest friend, my wife."
I'm not alwasy good
about telling you
how much I appreicate you
or how much I love you,
but I hope you know
how much I do.
And I hope you know how proud I am
that you're my wife...
my beautiful, caring wife.
Happy Mother's Day
With All My Love
(and then some handwritten mushy stuff)

Kaylee has gotten into the habit recenlty...and this week too...of coming into our room and climbing up onto our bed to 'wake us up'. This never makes me very happy. I cherish my sleep time.
This week Kaylee came and 'visited' me a few times in the early morning. This morning was the earliest.... 2:30am! I was fast asleep and suddenly I felt the bed shake a bit. I looked over and saw Kaylee climb onto our tall (3 foot high) bed and lay down on David's pillow and pull the covers up.
