Kameron's Goodnight

Jess is out of town in Boise tonight. The kids called to say good-night to him but since Kameron can't talk on the phone here's his goodnight to daddy!

Good night sweetie! We love you!

April catch-up

We've been busy and I am behind on blog posts so here it goes...

Easter! We did the normal Easter stuff. We had a neighborhood easter egg hunt on Friday then dyed easter eggs Saturday night. I felt bad. After we dyed eggs on Saturday I was going through in my head what I needed to get out for the kids easter egg baskets and I realized I hadn't got Kameron anything for Easter. Nothing! Not even a basket. I was going to go to the store but Jesse said that would be silly, he would never know the difference. Hopefully years from now when Kameron reads our blog book he won't be disappointed. Sorry Kameron!

We followed our yearly tradition and went to the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo. We always have a good time. We went with our great friends the Edwards. All of the kids got these horses outside the rodeo from a news crew. It was nice because they kept them busy during the boring parts.

What a crazy crew!

This is Kameron before the rodeo. It's hard to get a good picture of him smiling because he has to see a face to smile but if the camera is in the way...

We went to Boise that weekend with the Edwards. Nick had drill so we tagged along. It was super nice to get away since Jess is always gone and had a very busy week. (Even though he still brought his laptop, iPad and iPhone!)

Swimming at the hotel. Even Kameron got in on the action!

It was hard to get a good picture. Ellie loves to jump in and have Jess catch her. I felt bad because she was using her swimsuit from last year so she constantly was picking at a wedgie!

Kaden is a little nervous in the water (DEFINITELY Jesse's son) so he mostly just squirt everyone with his soaker. Got quite obnoxious really.

Nick gave us a tour of the Gowen Field. The kids loved it because they got to see helicopters, jets (with missiles), tanks, airplanes, etc. Kaden is way into all of that stuff so it was fun.

I had to represent and put a picture of the man in uniform. Who is that hottie next to him? Whew!

Poor Kameron. It was a lot of riding in his carseat and eating bottles on the go but he was a trooper.

Then we took the kids to ride Go Karts. It was nice weather so it was a good time. Girls took a turn then the boys. I think I have half a brain left from inhaling all of the gas fumes!

Even though Ellie was kind of tossed around in the car like a rag doll she kept laughing and telling me to go faster.

The boys were all about the competition and had to race. Of course I posted the picture when Jess was in the lead! :)

Jesse's car died right at the finish line. Hehehehe! It was a good weekend away! We always have fun with the Edwards. Thanks guys!

Man-Catchin' Beignets

For those of you who have seen Princess and the Frog (or for those who have seen it 56 times!) this post will make more sense! Kaden and Ellie love that movie and actually I would have to say Kaden likes it more.

In the movie Tiana makes "man-catchin' beignets" (pronounced bin-yeas). Every time Kaden would watch it he would ask what beignets were and what they tasted like. So.... I looked up a recipe (after I figured out how to spell it) and we made them today. He was so excited.

They actually ate a lot of them and really liked them. I thought they would eat one and be done with them. They were pretty good. Tasted like poofy scones. Better with cinnamon-sugar. Ellie was a little sad in the picture because I wouldn't let her stick her nose in the hot pan of oil. She has such a mean mom!

I had to post a picture of Jess with his new iPad or as the kids call it, his BIG iPhone. He was so excited for it, he would tell me where it was every day. He finally got it this morning. Great! Another electronic to take up more of his time! Just kidding Sweetie! After all, he was the one who got me hooked on my iPhone that I now couldn't do without!

This is a picture I stole from my sister-in-law's blog of Kameron. She got better pics than me at the blessing! Kameron is such a smile bug now! I've been lazy though and the only pictures of him smiling are on my phone. He is still such a good baby. He never has a continuous cry. He just never gets that upset. We joke that he's the perfect mix of Kaden and Ellie. Kaden would scream LOUD and long! Ellie never cried at all. And Kameron will just give out these loud bursts of energy letting you know he needs something. But he rarely cries. This week he actually cried and it was only once. But you can't blame the guy when mom is giving kids a bath and he is 20 minutes late for his breakfast!

Kameron's Blessing

We blessed Kameron on Sunday. Thank you to all of the friends and family that came to support our little guy. His outfit was way too big but he still looked very handsome. I was busy visiting with family and didn't take anymore pictures. Oops.
