1st Day of Kindergarten

Kyle started kindergarten this year. You would think I would have a ton of pictures to share from his first day. Nope! I was so scatter brained that day, I did not even get a picture of him and his teacher.

Ready to leave. He was so excited about his Lightening McQueen backpack and lunch box.
We had to park pretty far away from the school so this was during our walk to the front door. The one and only picture I took of him in his classroom. He looks a little bit nervous. ;)

Random Pictures

These are just some random pictures that were taken over the summer.

Kaden's favorite stuffed animal was Clifford. These are a few pictures of his love affair with him. He has since moved on to taking 3 foot tall Elmo everywhere he goes.
This is Kyle as "Star Wars Guy".
Brother Hugs!
This is "Chemlawn Guy". The goggles are his sunglasses and the microphone is his sprayer. Crazy kid!
Kaden cracking himself up in his brother's safety goggles.
Best buddies!

Play Date

We had a play date with a few of Kyle's preschool friends over the summer.

Kyle leading the way to the mall play area.
Kaden checking out the giant grapefruit.
Miss Sammie has a little crush on Kyle. :)
Having a little lollipop break.

4th of July

Just picking up where I left off 2 MONTHS AGO.... We spent the 4th of July at Gran and Pop Pop's house.

Kyle filling up the pool.
Kaden "helping" his brother.
Kaden adjusting his super soaker. Kaden doing his favorite activity...watching airplanes.
Since Gran and Pop Pop live out in the sticks, they are allowed to do fireworks in the backyard. This one did not work out as planned.
Nathan borrowed the kids super soaker to put out a little fire. Ha!
And that's where the pictures ended that night. The entire neighborhood was putting on their own shows. Ours was a little too close for comfort so I spent the rest of the night protecting the kids from all of the debris. It was a lot of fun though!

Kyle's Birthday

On Kyle's birthday we had a little mini celebration with Aunt Amy. We had our first trip to the Beach Club during the day and Kyle's choice of CiCi's for dinner. Yum! (Just a little sarcasm!)

Kyle opening a few presents. (Please ignore the disaster area! We were still in the process of unpacking and decorating.).

"Star Wars Guy" putting the candles on his cake.

My son doing what he calls "the bootie dance". Nice!

I don't remember what had happened here but I thought it was too pitiful not to post. Poor Kaden!

Kyle and Kaden's Birthday Party

On June 21st, Kyle and Kaden had their birthday party at Pump It Up. Kyle loved it as usual and Kaden tolerated it which is pretty good for him.

Kyle coming down the big slide.

Kaden bouncing on the entry way to the big slide. We tried to get him to go down the slide but he was too scared.

The group shot. Kaden was way too busy to sit down for more than two seconds. :)

The birthday cake...


My attempt at a pic of the boys with their birthday shirts. Ha!

Individual photo sessions work much better...

Gran and Pop Pop got Kyle a Wii for his birthday. He LOVES it! Check out those boxing moves...

Kaden in a daze watching his brother play Wii.

Kaden & Amy's Birthday Party

Since Kaden and Amy's birthdays are so close together we had a little celebration.

You are about to see a bunch of pictures of Kaden enjoying his party. For the most part though, this is really what he looked like that day. He was so grumpy and clingy for some reason. Yikes!

Aunt Amy managed to get a few smiles out of him.

So did Pop Pop...

Blowing out the candles on his cake. Kyle blew out one of the candles with a party blower. I am amazed that it did not catch on fire!

Gran and Kaden giving each other smooches.

Backyard Fun

These pictures were taken in May shortly after moving into our new home.

Fudgsicle messes... Kaden really got into sliding this summer. This was when he was still pretty new to it so Nathan was close by.

Just a cute picture of Kaden...

Brother hugs...

Last Day of Preschool

Kyle's end of the year preschool party was held at a park. They got to play, have a picnic, and did a little performance.

Playing on the swings... They sang 2 songs and did the alphabet in sign language. Very cute! Kyle receiving his end of the year certificate from his teacher.
