Kayson's Birthday

Happy Birthday Kayson! 6 Years Old!

Grandma & Grandpa came over for cake and icecream.

Kayson blowing out his candles. Tyson was by his side ready to dig into the cake.

We had a pinata. Peyton tried his best.

Kayson gave a couple of good swings too.

One of Kayson's cousins wanted to buy Kayson a birthday gift with her own money, so she went down the street to a yard sale and got him this cowboy hat.

Peyton went with his mom to get Kayson a new bike. He did a really good job keeping a secret.

Kayson giving Peyton a hug and telling him "Thanks" for his new bike. He had a great birthday. He is getting so big. It's hard for me to see him growing up. He's going to Kindergarten in a couple of weeks and I'm sad that he will be gone for part of the day. He helps me out so much. He has always been my boy that never wants to dissappoint his mom or dad. I love you Kayson!
Happy Birthday!

Summer Review

This summer seems to have gone by fast. We have had so much going on. I feel like we haven't had a free day fof a long time. So since I've been a slacker on updating my blog, here's a quick catch-up page. Here's what our summer has been like.
Kayson has been taking piano lessons and had his first recital. He did great!

Preston took us all on our frist trip to catch crawdads. We had a ball.

Preston even got a little wet trying to get the ones that fell out of the bucket.
Here's a picture of some that we kept. We caught around 300 of them.

This is kind of hard to see, but this chipmunk kept coming close to us. So I held out a chip and it came and ate it right out of my hand. It was really neat.
We did some camping and fishing. We love the outdoors. Tyson loved watching his brothers and dad catch fish.
Kayson with his cousin Braden fishing at the Nielsen reunion. He's following in his dad's footsteps.
These aren't goose eggs. These are mosquito bites. He got them all over his forehead. It looked like someone took a hammer to his head. His eyes even got a little puffy. He looked pretty beat by the time we got home.
Kayson & Peyton down at Polecreek cave.
I love the mountains. It's so pretty up there. Peyton likes being up there too.
We always return home a lot dirtier than we came.
Peyton and his cousin Parker trying to catch some waterballons in their towel. We did a lot of fun water games.
Preston & I played a lot of softball. Unfortunately, there were some injuries.
Preston's ankle he sprained in a softball game.
We had a great summer, but I think we are all exhausted. We are all ready to get back into our old routines.
Peyton after one of our many rides home from family activites.
Tyson enjoyed the summer too.
That was a brief review of our summer. I'll try to do a better job updating from now on.
