Zoo in spring

Back in blogger land I am for my zero maybe 1 reader left here is some new pic's for you. Yesterday the boys and I went to the zoo it was 75 and gorgeous. Although all of the animals were sleeping in their habitants the monkeys were quite active. We stood and watched them for awhile and just laughed they were quite entertaining.

Here is "Nessie" I believe it was called at Art Prize this fall in her new home at the zoo. Quite amazing it is.
My little Romeo oh that smile will melt a girls heart someday.

My Kaleb posed for many pictures for me that day I just love this kid:)

All my handsome boys even got Lucas in on this one.

Kaleb and Roman playing on the train. I declared Kaleb to old to play on it since it was all preschool/kind. kids. However it cleared out for a bit and Roman was quite delighted that big brother got to play on it with him for a bit.

What would the annual trip to the zoo be without at least one picture of all the kids sitting on John Ball? LOL

4th of July

On the 4th this year we went to a friends house the boys tried water skiing for the first time, they got to go tubing, fishing and swim. Ben waterskied as well and we both tubed, played volleyball and just had an awesome fun relaxing day.

Here is Ben water skiing.

Lucas water skiing he got up the first time and then couldn't get it again. He can't wait to try again.

Kaleb with the fish he caught this kid is great at catching big fish. I was impressed at least.

We finally got out our boat last weekend and used it a lot since it's up for sale. We took a nice ride and then anchored for the kids to swim for awhile. Funny thing is I didn't realize how disgusting the water was until I looked at these pic's..yuck..anyway the boys survived and didn't come out with any weird rashes or anything. Although note to self if boat doesn't sell don't take it on that lake again!

Lucas and Kaleb swimming in the lake.

Kaleb swimming they were jumping off the top of the boat into the water same thing we did as kids brought back memories.

Roman just being Roman nuff said :)

Roman driving the boat. Ben let Lucas and Kaleb each drive it by themselves and they both did great. Roman sat on his lap to drive and all were thrilled at the chance to. Since it's technically not legal for them to Ben doesn't usually let them but sometimes rules have to be broken right:)

Such concentration!

Summer time fun..

Since it's been a month since I last posted I thought I'd post some of the fun the kids and I have been having so far this summer. The boys and I went down to festival all the kid things were so busy and you had to wait in line. We ended up just doing the hat tent each of the boys got to make a hat. Above you can see Roman creating his hat.

Here is Kaleb showing his hat I just love his big smile in this pic. And all three of them together with their finished hats.

The boys also ran a 5K a month ago. Here is Lucas finishing.

Kaleb also ran this was his second one. He has taken up running with his mama and is doing very well at it. So good in fact he kicks my butt. He ran this 5K is 23:45 which for those of you who don't run is pretty awesome. Considering he's only 9 it's just plain good for anyone really. He plans on doing another 5K sometime this summer.

A few things from Roman

This is a picture that Roman drew and told me it was Mickey Mouse the letters across the top spell Mickey Mouse he said. I thought it actually resembled Mickey after he told me that.

This is Romans new found favorite thing to do. He learned to ride a without his training wheels about a month ago. We've been taking lots of bike rides to the park, ice cream store, and around the neighborhood. He's getting quite good on it. He loves being able to go fast now like his big brothers.

Roman sayings:

Tonight while biking with Roman he says:
"mom, why are you riding next to me"
I said "so I can protect you if a car comes".
He says "God will protect me"..I just love it!
