Random Happenings!

He really wants glasses like his brother so he wear those 3D plastic ones you get at the movies!

My good friend Janette had a pirate party for her son and these are me little mateys!

What age should you start taking your kids to the Dentist?

Hunter dressed up as a Clone Trooper with his Clone bear from the Build a Bear Workshop!

Andrew dressed up as Darth Vader with his Vader bear from the Build a Bear Workshop!

Okay had to mention this again Andrew loves talking how he met David Henri who plays
Justin Russo on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place.

This past week during spring break Andrew got to have his first sleepover! His friend Levi spent everyday at our house and spent the night twice. Thee first time they slept in the playroom and played video games all night, then later that week when he slept over again they slept in the family room and watched Star Wars. Levi has only one sister so his mom said he loves it at our house with all these boys, and we love having him he is such a sweet kid!

Before Hunter went on spring break his kindergarten class had a project where they made Leprechaun traps! When he got back to school today they had caught a Kid leprechaun but the Daddy leprechaun had come and helped him escape. But they did leave chocolate gold candy!

Hunter and the Worlds LARGEST Strawberry!
And oh how that boy loves strawberries!

The Ostrich Festival

Yesterday we took the boys to the Ostrich Festival that Chandler puts on every year. They have a big carnival with rides, shows and live Ostrich races! It was pretty funny to watch the Ostrich races and the boys wanted to ride them but we had to tell them that it's only for trained professionals! We had a great long day but loaded with fun!!!

This is the first ride the kids did, we were there so long and did so many things plus it was so crowded it was hard to get pictures so I am only posting some of the pictures I took. Andrew and Hunter are the two cute kids in the yellow!

My sweetie watching the boys fly by!

If you can see him there's Parker next to the little girl!

Have I told you how much I love carousels!!!

Everything has it's opposites right? Well...
I HATE Ferris wheels!

I am terrified of heights and the last time I rode a Ferris Wheel I was a freshman in high school. I rode with my Dad and was scared the entire time. So yesterday the 3rd ride we went on scared Parker and he refused to go on anymore. Well later that night he asked to go on the Ferris Wheel which meant that I would have to go because the rules were that parents had to ride with their children. So Kevin rode with Parker and i rode with Andrew and Hunter. Let's just say we didn't make it far before I completely panicked and asked to get off. But my sweet boys understood and it was a good thing cause Parker panicked and they got off right behind us!

Below the boys are on another ride and Andrew is helping Parker across because the poor kid is so scared! I wonder where he gets his fear of heights from!

So we took the boys on this fun tug boat and of course Parker cried the whole time!

Hunter could not get enough of this ride! It was a maze with slides and stuff in it! He kept going through over and over again! We did get Parker to try this one but he went in and came right back out! Silly boy!

So now is what you have all been waiting for the STAR Andrew met from his favorite TV show is...

David Henri who plays Justin Russo on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place! Andrew was so excited and we waited in line for 2 hours yesterday just so Andrew could meet him. The things we do for our children right!!!

The Pinewood Derby!

Andrew had his first Pinewood Derby a few Saturdays ago! He and Kevin were so excited to work on his derby car. Andrew painted it red and then we took him to the Lego store so he could build his own driver for the car!

Here are all the cars from our troop! I think all the boys did such a good job working on their cars they are so creative!

These kids are so great and half of them boys are in my primary class!

The Wolf den getting ready to race!

Andrew did really well with the races! He won some and lost some but no matter what he had a great attitude and I'm so proud of him!

Field Trip!

So today was Hunter's very 1st field trip and I was so excited to be able to go along with his class. We went to the Arizona Museum for Youth! There were 4 parents who went and we each were given a group of kids to watch. I had 4 boys in my group and they decided our group name would be the Star Wars group!

They look like Jedi Knights in training right?

At the museum they had several hands on projects for the kids to do. This one here was making a point of interest with a map of the world. Our group decided on Australia as the point of interest! By the way Hunter said Jedi's don't smile, I guess the other members of my group didn't get the memo!

So for this project they made paper patterns!

Here is the Star Wars group's finished patterns!
And Hunter's smiling!

Here they learned more about patterns and got to play with kaleidoscopes!
just so you know the little boy next to Hunter is his friend Samuel and now I know why Hunter wants me to comb his hair into a mo-hawk everyday!
Sorry Hunter you are not getting a real one!

Crazy eyes!

Here is our picnic lunch at Freestone park!

Here we are finishing our lunch by the bathrooms after it started raining!

And here we are running to the buses as a huge storm hit and we have to finish our lunch back at the school!
Good thing I wore my boots and skinny jeans today, I hate it when the bottom of my pants get wet!

Despite the rain it was a fun trip and I'm so glad I was able to go with Hunter and have so much fun!
