Happy birthday Daddy

We spent the whole day together today to celebrate. The kids all made him homemade cards and helped to wrap and unwrap his present. The kids decided that Daddy needed to go to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate. We had a pizza lunch and played some games. We let Daddy pick where he wanted supper so we went to Los Cucos, our favorite Mexican restaurant.
Spencer made sure that the waiter knew it was his Dad's birthday so they would sing happy birthday and smear whipped cream in his face, while weraing a sombrero. That was the highlight of the day for Bob.
We came home and had cake and ice cream and sang happy birthday again. The kids were just thrilled with the candles on the cake.......yes all 43 of them. Caden wanted to light them again and again.

Spencer is really enjoying soccer this year. His friend Tanner from preschool is on his team and they are both thrilled.
He understands the game more this year, he is not laying in the field picking flowers. ha ha ha
The coach is even teaching them how to hit the ball with their heads.

I get to go to his practices on Friday nights. Bob takes him to his games on Saturdays (yet another reason I hate working weekends.)
At least I get to see his practices.

The triplets got to play in the baby pool today. The water is still too cold in the big one, but not for long.They had a ball, splashing and jumping. Poor little Spencer missed out as he was in preschool.Peyton was not amused at Caden splashing and kept "telling" on him.
I had to bring pots of hot water from inside to add as the water from the hose was too cold.

Fun at the park

I took the kids to the park this morning to feed the ducks and play on the jungle gym. We even found a rolly polly bug which was the highlight.

Peyton was not amused as a duck "bit" her. It actually took bread out of her hand. She talked about it forever too.
Later Daddy came with us to Ellis pond with the dog and we threw the ball into the water for him. He got tired and would just leave the ball in the water too far for us to reach so we couldn't throw it anymore. ha ha ha

Spring has sprung

I took the kids to the zoo yesterday as Bob was working late. That is the first time I have gone and not met someone there later. They did great and I would take them anytime.
I have a cold and felt awful, but Caden kept asking to go (came up with the idea on his own too). Figured it would be easier to entertain them there than to come up with something at home.

They got a little tired near the end though as I only brought the single umbrella stroller. They had big discussions about who's turn it was to get into it next.
As you can see the azaleas are blooming and just gorgeous!!!

I can do it!!!

Caden learned how to pedal his bike today. He has been flinstoning it on his big wheels for ages now. He is so proud of himself. I can't believe how fast they are growing up. Soon we will all be bike riding together instead of towing them behind us.
I have finally joined you tube so check out the video of Caden riding his bike. Just click the arrow in the center and it will play.

Caden has a doozy of a shiner now. Its not showing up in the pictures to be as dark as it actually is.
He was on the rocking horse in Spencer's room a couple of days ago and rocked it too far and fell forward into a dresser. It immediately swelled up and turned black. Now its spread and given him a black eye.

Cute little bruiser though.

Rodeo time

We took the kids to the Rodeo yesterday and they had a ball.
We wandered through the children's area and saw all the animals. They enjoyed the petting zoo and even saw a kangaroo.
Spencer, Sydney and Peyton volunteered to play tambourine with a singer and did really well. They were all very proud of themselves and I thought they were just too cute!!!!
We also saw the pig races and Spencer was our sections cheer leader and our pig won. He got a prize too, a little pig key chain that looks like its pooping when you squeeze it. YUK
We did the midway after supper and the little ones were just running around saying "mommy look at this". We took them on a couple big rides and they did well. Caden did not enjoy the water roller coaster thing though. Halfway down the big hill he was yelling "all done, all done". I was thinking the same thing myself. ha
They all fell asleep on the way home and barely woke up to get changed and in to bed.

I'm so tired

Poor little Sydney just couldn't stay awake for one more minute. I had just picked up Spencer from preschool and figured I would check my e-mail quickly and let the kids wind down for a minute before nap time. I looked down at my feet and there she was - sound asleep. She barely woke up when I took her upstairs.

I am so going to miss these days when they are grown up. They are already growing up WAY too fast.
