Ryker's Birthday Day Museum Visit

Ryker is into being a dinosaur right now so Melissa decided we should go to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point on his birthday. Me, Matt, Andrew and his friend Daxten, joined Melissa and Ryker for the day. We went to the museum, a 3-D dinosaur movie, lunch at Paradise Cafe (yummy cookies!!) and checked out Cabela's while we were down that way. We had a lot of fun, but I came home exhausted!

Summer Fun The Old Fashioned Way!

Andrew and his friends have been having night games two or three days a week! I love it when they play this way. It reminds me of when I was a child. We used to meet every night down at the corner light post. All of the neighbor kids from young to old used to get together and play "Hide and Seek", "Kick the Can", "Steal the Flag" and "Freeze Tag".

The one thing I notice with Andrew and his buddies is it is much harder to get everyone together. This takes them quite awhile because they have to call everyone and have them dropped off. I guess that's progress...definitely a downside! They also like to "Doorbell Ditch". I apologize to any of my neighbors this has effected!

Anyway, I try to encourage this kind of play instead of the kinds that takes money. Skating rink, water slides, movies, video games, laser tag..... I want to take them hiking and to float down the river on some innner tubes. Next week!

Jordan's Graduation!!

Well, summer is flying by so I thought I would update my blog a little bit! Jordan's graduation was at the Dee Events Center on June 5th, 2009 and 12:00. It was really nice (as far as graduations go). The grandparents came and we went to lunch afterwards!

Jordan's Graduation Photos!

We took Jordan to Layton Park for a photo shoot! He wasn't a totally cooperative subject, but ended up with some pretty good pictures.

Ryker is going to graduate some day so he needed to be in the pictures!

Graduation is Friday! Three down - one to go! Go Superjillo!!!
