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.).

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.

Kyle's School Birthday Celebration

Kyle got to celebrate his birthday a little early at school this year. Since his birthday is in June I decided to have a little cupcake party the last week of school.

The cupcake cake that Kyle picked our for his birthday... Kyle wearing his birthday crown that his teacher made for him.

Owen's Farm

I know I am a slacker! I have done a horrible job of updating lately. I am going to try to update from where I last left off.

Nathan and Kyle went to Owen's Farm together back in April. They had a petting zoo and all sorts of fun stuff set up for the kids to do.

Kyle hanging out by the gator. Gran and Pop Pop have a battery operated gator at their house that Kyle is still afraid to drive but he seemed ok with this one. Kyle loved feeding the animals.

Kyle on top of a huge bail of hay. Way off in the background you can see what really goes on at Owen's Farm. Thankfully "how to make sausage" was not part of the kids tour.
Kyle posing in front of the animals...
Finally a picture of Nathan and Kyle.
