Easter and Trevin's 1st B-day

Easter Sunday was Trevin's big 1st birthday!  I can't believe my little guy is one.  It is so great!  As a birthday present to his mom, he slept through the night for the first time ever.  I can't think of a better present except for the jeans he asked my mother in law for which, he didn't get!  If you are wondering, Trevin asked his Grandma Mower for a pair of Seven jeans size 25, dojo cut.  We are still waiting Vickie don't you worry we know you will come through for us sooner or later.  Tyler and Talan were so excited to dye eggs and to go on an Easter Egg hunt.  I love having kids they make holidays so much fun.  Matt and I stayed up the night before getting everything just so.  We put together the Easter baskets, stuffed the eggs, got food prepared, and put together the sand box that Grandma Gould got the kids for their birthdays this year.  We were so excited to get the kids out in the sandbox with all their new sand toys.  We wake up and it is snowing!  There is no way we were going to play in the sand.  Yeah, all that lack of sleep for nothing.  That seems about right don't cha think?  Talan got his army four wheeler that he has been begging for.  Both Tyler and Talan have popped a few tires off the ground so far.  Its a good thing it has a kill switch on it.  I can already tell that kill switch is going to get its fair use.  Tyler is holding out for his dirt bike.  It has to be just perfect for him.  I swear there are days when I wonder how such a girlie girl like myself got 3 boys well, really 4.  I don't know if I would even recognize myself if I went back 10 years and saw myself through a window.  All this outdoor stuff, camping, 4 wheelers, Moab, I would probably laugh and say yeah right keep dreaming.  I guess all that matters is that my family is happy and whole.  A family that plays together stays together.

Weekend of Wonder

We had a fun weekend.  We decided that it was warm enough to go camping and take out our four wheelers.  The kids couldn't be happier with some dirt, toys, and a campfire.  They love every part of camping.  We had to leave the decision up to Tyler because he had to choose whether he would be okay with missing pajama day at school.  Not only is it hard to miss pj day because Tyler absolutely loves pjs and would probably live in them if possible, but he has uniforms.  So, any chance you get to dress different is super exciting.  Tyler's teacher told us to take pictures of the wild life.  Unfortunately, we only saw a skinned deer that had already decayed and all you saw were the bones and some fur left over.  Tyler insisted we take it's picture.  I thought about posting it but thought for those faint of heart I should be careful.  So, if you know my husband at all you know he is kind of a country boy.  We pulled into a small campsite to enjoy our weekend to ourselves.  Well, not even 5 hours later two cars with a trailer pull up.  Matt is beyond annoyed at this man and what we assume to be his wife.  Well, they get up and leave early in the morning but left their camper.  We thought well, I guess its not that big of a deal.  Later on that day after a fun day of riding, playing, napping, eating, everything good in life.  A small neighborhood drives up all with camper trailers and start squeezing next to us.  By the end of the night there was at least 10 other cars all with some sort of RV trailer next to us.  We might as well have been in a KOA.  We went home and got dressed and showered in 30 minutes for Talan to go to one birthday party and Tyler to go to another.  Talan was really sad to go because he wanted the toy he was given.  Oh the age of being 2 and not understanding birthday parties.  From the parties Matt and I met up and a parking lot and headed up to Denver for Motocross.  My children loved it.  I would recommend it to anyone who has boys.  They all had their eyes glued to all the dirt bikes.  Even my husband who kept gasping for fear the guys were going to wipe out.  It was a fun weekend.  It was what a weekend should be, full of fun!
