Parenting

Being a parent can be frustrating, challenging and more often than not if you sit back and just watch kids, a hilarious job.  We asked these two to get their jammies on (which they did) and when we got upstairs, they were both laughing hysterically in costumes over their jammies.

Big Brothers and Little Brothers

My dad's youngest brother was in town last week and we went with him to the Botanic Gardens so he could see Elsie's tree.  I think these pictures are so sweet of big brothers with their little brothers remembering little Elsie.

10 Years



We celebrated our 10th anniversary recently by spending a wonderful relaxing weekend away together in Beaver Creek (the boys stayed with Papa and Grandma). And on the actual day of our anniversary we had a special family dinner out at Benihana with the boys, which was somewhat less than relaxing but still fun.

Cotton Candy


Our pool has punchcards that you can buy for certain dollar amounts and use at their snack shack.  I decided to get each kid one and let them be responsible for their own spending until its gone.  In the first day, Landon bought an ice cream cone.  Adler bought a hot chocolate, cotton candy and an ice cream cone.  Landon came back 3 times to make sure it really was OK that they get anything they wanted.  I assured them it was, curious to see what they would get.  Adler's card is almost gone after just one day and he didn't like the hot chocolate or cotton candy.
