Our New Puppy!!!

Well.....I broke down and let the boys get a black lab. They have all been asking for quite awhile and I always say NO... Living in a house with all boys I always feel that I am outnumbered and so I surprised them all with a dog. They were beyond excited and she is a lovely addition to our home. Her name is Maggie Moo and she is wonderful. Welcome to the family maggie I hope you love our crazy and exciting household.

Skagit Speedway

On Saturday night we went to the Skagit Speedway. It was Youth Appreciation night and so the speedway sent our church some free tickets for us and our youth group. It was so much fun we also took some kids and their parents from Dylan's baseball team. It was the first time that we have been and so we didn't know that it would be so DUSTY. We had DIRT everywhere.....Our car was even covered when we came out of the races. I don't have any pictures for you because the battery on my camera died and so I didn't get any. Even with all the dust we had beautiful weather, great company, and great racing. We even got to see a couple of pretty cool crashes. I can say that because the drivers were all ok. It was an awesome evening and we decided that we may even go again. Hope everyone is out enjoying this beautiful sunshine. I know we are.

Dylan's New Bike

On Thursday Dylan got a new bike. He had saved up half the money and so me and Derrick decided that as a reward for getting student of the month in school and for having such a great school year with reading, spelling and math we would pitch in for the other half. We had ordered it online and every day he would come home and ask if his bike was here....on Thursday when he got home I got to tell him that it was finally here. Needless to say he has not been off of it. At least the weather is cooperating for him to ride it. This weekend he wants to go to the bike park so we will see if it still looks new after that. Hope you guys have great weekend plans. We are taking the boys to the Skagit Speedway for the first time tonight. I will take pictures and let you know about our experience.

Having Fun!

We have just been having so much fun around here lately that I haven't had much time to post. We have been busy with outside projects over the last couple of weeks and now this weekend we will hopefully weather permitting get to finish our big one. We are going to paint our house. Yes we are going to do it by ourselves and hope it turns out ok. I will hopefully post you a before picture and an after and you can let me know what you think.
Dylan is very excited that school is almost over and he will be a 2nd grader and Owen is just loving life and the fact that he gets to stay home with mom all the time. We are taking one day at a time and waiting to see what is in store for us. I do know that God doesn't give us anything that we cannot handle....I just keep believing that. Hope you all are enjoying the sunshine.

The Fisherman!

On Sunday, Derrick took Dylan out fishing up at a pond we have near our house. He caught 5 fish and the most important thing was he did it all by himself. He was so proud and the look on his face when he came home said it all. Derrick was so happy too because watching Dylan catch those fish was better than Derrick catching them. He was so happy that he is going to try to go out again this weekend....if the weather holds off. Enjoy the lovely weather we are having outside!!

Baseball Update!

Yeah......Dylan's baseball team is on a roll we have won 2 in a row. Last night the boys played so well and they had a lot of fun doing it. I brought bubble gum for all the boys and they all hit amazing and they thought it was the gum. I guess I will be buying gum for every game.
Hope you all have plans to enjoy this nice weather that we are supposed to have.
