Happy Father's Day 2011

Father's Day was on June 19th this year. We were lucky enough to have Nana and G-Daddy in town to celebrate with us too. We decided to make it a little interesting this year and make Daddy search for his present. The boys drew him a treasure map and proudly followed him on his quest to find his treasure.

No digging required, but he successfully followed the map from the house, through the trees, and out to the shed. Lucky him, he scored himself a new Garmin bike computer. Now he can immerse himself in more data/graphs, as if he doesn't get enough of this at work. A true Engineer :)

We didn't make G-Daddy search for his, but we got him a sailing lesson so he can sharpen his skills and some super cool cutting edge HD Aviator sunglasses. Yes, you've probably seen the infomercial! I hope they work :)

And here are the Dads and their boys....Happy Father's Day!


Goodbye Tonsils and Adenoids

Kyle has had way too many ear infections over the last year, so it looks like the culprit might be the adenoids and possibly the tonsils. So, the week after school ended Kyle had both out. The Dr. said he had the largest tonsils he'd seen in a kid his age. I guess that was a good move on our part to get rid of them, seeing as we might have run into problems later on. I must say this was a rough surgery for us all. The recovery was just way more difficult than I had imagined. He enjoyed the numerous slushies, but I'm sure he'd say it wasn't worth it. He really was in a lot pain for a good week and it just broke my heart. Once he could eat normal foods again, we had to stick to soft stuff for 30 days! Not fun when you have to tell your kid he can't have any chips, cookies, crackers, etc. for 30 days! He was definitely a trooper through it all and we were so proud of him.


Special Agents in Training

Meet Special Agent Kyle and Special Agent Ryan. They are currently training for their next mission.....Mission Impossible. The boys decided to have some fun with a ball of yarn.

It was funny....Ryan started to wreck it and Kyle was getting upset. Pretty standard around here. Anyway, then Ryan decided to twist himself in the yarn and voila, it was fixed. Kyle came running in the kitchen saying, "Look mom, Ryan is a genius. He fixed it." Sure enough, there was Mr. Genius who I later had to free using a pair of scissors!


Pool Time

Ahh...the weather is warm and it's time to hit the pool! Lucky for us, we just have to walk next door and jump in. Check out our little Katie. I'm gonna miss those chubby little legs one day.

She's a little fish in the tub, so I knew she'd love the pool this year. She's quite a splasher and she's quite fearless which makes me a little nervous.
