Disneyland 2010

We were fortunate to be able to go to Disneyland during a trip to California for Ammon's high school reunion. The kids had an amazing time and have yet to stop asking to go back.
Gavin staged a mutiny and took over the ship.
We call him Captain Gavin Longbeard now.
Everyone is a kid at Disneyland.
Evil Queen's ROCK.
I've never seen my kids enjoy themselves more!

4th of July 2010 on the Boat

This 4th of July we went out on the boat with Noni & Papa. You can just guage the kids maturity by the changes in their behaviour on the boat. Last year the kids could barely last an hour before the meltdown wiggles hit them. This year its like a whole hour and a half...

Grandpa Ram, Maryanne & Wren

Grandpa Ram, Maryanne & Wren drove up for a visit. We met them on the coast and had lunch at Mo's. We walked the open market, wandered along the shoreline and hiked Sweet Creek Falls. We swam at the pool, rode bikes by the river and took in the sites to be seen in Eugene. Thanks for visiting. Eugene is a fun place when guests come to play!

Father Son Campouts 2010

Gavin & Ammon took off for two father son camp outs at the Coast. I loved hearing the stories upon their return. Gavin would tell me of adventures with bats, giant trees and playing with the waves. Ammon would share his heroic moments in subterfuge during the greased watermelon throw down. Then I would see the pictures of my child up too late at night, climbing to the tops of trees, and running freely around fire pits with his father encouraging every wild activity.
I love my boys!

Preschool End of Year Party

The preschool end of the year party was a blast!
Puddles made an appearance and of course Gavin, Emilia and Puddles go way back.
There was a petting zoo.
Which means my 4-year old son got to hold an alligator.
For some of my dearestf riends this will trigger an amusing memory of MY college experiences...for my newer friends please feel free to ask...
But what is a 4-year old boy to do with an alligator?
Chase his sister with it.

Warning this one hurt!!

On June 5th, 2010 Gavin received his first stitches.
Strangely enough, he received this injury in a rather innocent way. I had returned home and he was excited to see me, so he ran down the hallway and accidentally slipped on some newspaper and his chin hit the floor. That's it. We quickly deduced that this was beyond the healing qualities of a kiss and a band-aid and rushed our boy out to get stitches. He was a zen ninja master "I eat pain for breakfast"-I on the other hand fainted from the idea of my son in so much pain. He is perfectly okay now-"chicks dig scars".
