Ice Cream Cones- Part 2

So my little man was ADORABLE tonight.. he knew that on my last post I didn't have a picture of the ice cream cones.. so while I was making dinner he was coloring and said he was making me a special picture..
When he finished he held it up and proudly exclaimed, "Look mom I made you a picture of the yummy ice cream cones we had, so now you have a picture of them to put on your computer"

Man I love that kid! The picture of the ice cream cone totally rocks too!

big brothers advice to his little sister..

Hailie came home quite upset that a little boy was being mean to her by putting wood chips down her pants.
As she is telling the story Luke is paying close attention and when she finishes just as I am about to say something, Luke says, " Well Hailie when I went to your Preschool there was a boy there that was mean to me, so you want to know what I did, I just went on the playground and found a special diamond rock and gave it to him, and you know what, he was my friend then. So maybe you should go on the playground and find a special rock and give it to him and then he will be your friend instead of putting woodchips in your undewear."

well said son...

crazy how they are having conversations on their own now and don't need mommy as much..sniff...sniff..

Where were we you ask??
why celebrating my brother-in-law Jeff's birthday by going to see an RC Plane show of course...

The kids had fun playing and hanging out while Daddy and Uncle Jeff talked planes

Then off to Luke's Air Force Base to watch the real planes...
I never found a sign for the base.. the elementary school was the closest thing I saw..
Luke got a kick out of seeing his name everywhere though..

The planes were really neat to watch and the kids seemed to enjoy most of it..
Hailie was a bit freaked out by how loud they were, but some really nice people behind us gave us some ear plugs for her and then she seemed better...
Then we were off to Grandma and Papa's for the continuation of the birthday celebration...

Here is where the party started getting a little rowdy.. ha..
Happy Birthday Auntie Becca, Uncle Jeff, and Aunt Amber!
(I see you in there Clint)
We were exhausted by the end of the day as you can imagine but had a nice time...

followed by Luke screaming, "It's my green beans!! It's my green beans!! I knew it!"

The Rockin' Garden Party

Awhile back I picked up some stuff to see if the kids and I could grow a little garden this Spring.. when they got home from school today it was so beautiful outside I thought it would be a good day to do it.. I was outside getting things ready and I yelled upstairs for them to come down and help mommy outside plant a garden...

They came down yelling that they had gotten their "garden gloves" on.....
I laughed so hard when there they were in their mittens......love them.
I had them get to work by coloring on the Peat Pots to help label what we were planting..
Luke did a great watermelon scene don't you think..
In went the soil....
and then the seeds...

a little water...

the final touches...

And here is our little garden all ready to hopefully start growing in a couple weeks....
