Catch Up!

We had the Eddington Family reunion in Preston Idaho. We were able to stay over one night and we had so much fun with family, games, and lots of food. Tyler was so excited because we got to sleep in the tent. After the movie that night Tyler told us "lets go camping!" I had never seen him so excited to go to bed before. They both did so well, and we were so thankful!

All of us in the morning, this is about the best picture we got.

Tyler with his metal and popsicle. My grandma sure knows the way to a kids heart!

Jaxon did not want to let go of this ball, he was having so much fun.

We also got to go swimming at the reunion. This is my dad with Jaxon.

This is the only time Tyler was in the water and it only lasted about 30 seconds. The water in the pool is river water so as you can imagine it was cold.

After the swimming and fun activities we started a movie for them and this is what happened. Jaxon never does this that is how tired he was.

Swimming at my parents.

Tyler did not want to share this huge noodle, that is why it isn't in the pool.

This morning the boys were playing and I heard Tyler say, "lets go skiing." This is what I found when I got there. I love their imaginations!!

This morning we also got to go on a tour of krispy kremes for play group for our ward. The boys loved watching the doughnuts in the waterfall (where the icing comes out). It was a perfect outing because it didn't take to long and of course a huge bonus was the yummy free doughnut.

Yes we are still alive!!

Wow! I haven't posted for a long time! Not much as changed around here except the heat and my growing stomach! I am now 32 weeks and I am hoping I can make through the rest of my pregnancy in the heat.

We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We spent the weekend at my in-laws to limit our time driving to and from softball games. Our weekend consisted of softball, boating, eating snow cones and yummy treats, watching the Perry parade, playing some games with the boys, watching the fireworks, and sleeping of course! I only had my camera on the 4th which I am sad about because of all the fun we had!

This is how Jaxon felt most of the 4th. He had a long weekend with not enough sleep, apparently he likes his routine!

Every year my mom gets the kids matching shirts for the 4th, but we usually forget to get a picture of them. We got one this year but this is about the best we could do with 6 kids.

Some of the Jacobsen cousins waiting for the parade to start.

Jaxon being his mellow self watching the parade with grandpa.

Tyler and Jason collecting candy.

The Eddington cousins (minus Jaxon) at the fireworks. Sorry dad this is the only picture I got.

Tyler loves flags so of course he loves the 4th of July. We hope all of you had a wonderful 4th of July also!
