Haircuts, slip'n'slide and backyard campouts!

Jakey got a haircut last week and it makes him look so much older I could hardly stand it. He looks more like a toddler than a baby anymore. I wish I could freeze time or atleast slow it down a little, they grow up so quickly.

You gotta love the slip'n'slide! I would love to have a pool but until then we will have to settle for this. I am so glad my kids still enjoy cheap entertainment. Jake was the first and last one on it. Danny helped him figure things out and he could not get enough. It was hilarious to watch him. He was on back half the time because he could not stand up with out falling. Lauren and Aydon had to race the whole time and Little Miss Lindsey slipped and fell on her bum the first time so she barely stuck her big toe on it after that. She truly believes she is a Princess and I would have to agree!

Lauren is such a mother hen, she is constantly watching out for Jake and Lindsey. She says she is not having kids when she grows up because she is NEVER getting married! "It is too disgusting" she says. And she also says pushing a baby looks way to painful " worse than getting shots". She is right about that, but I think she will change her mind because she is a great little mom already.

I want to eat these children. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
Jake found Aydon's hat in the garage and loved it. He usually won't keep one on but he was all about the cowboy hat! He is definately a Torgersen. Giddy up!

We have been anxiously awaiting camping season and we didn't have any exciting plans last weekend so we had a backyard campout which was so much fun. The kids had a blast and so did Danny and I. We had hot dogs, chips, watermelon and when it got dark Danny made the best smores, they were extra gooey! Yum! I have decided camping in the backyard is perfect. I didn't have to pack up anything, or travel anywhere, we didn't have to pee in the woods and after Aydon got done telling "scary stories" Lindsey, Jake and I went and crawled in our beds. It was a really fun night!

Aydon has a little more trouble than the rest of us eating because of all of his teeth being loose and the ones that have grown in are still at different lengths. It is so funny to watch him. I offered to blend it up for him but he didn't think that was very funny! Cute kid.

The girls being silly at breakfast. I adore them. This is just a random picture but captures these two perfectly! They have a hot and cold relationship. Sometimes they fight with eachother about everything. If Lindsey won't share or Jake just plain wants what she has, he will just shove his way in. Jake is both a lover and a fighter and so is Lindsey. I have no idea where they got there tempers from.

I looooove these kids! I am really excited for your princess to be in the same class with my princess in the fall. I think they'll have lots of fun and I'm excited to see you in the pickup line!

I totally agree about back yard campouts!!! Although I love being in the mountains! Cute pics, I love them! You need to update your blog more often so we can see you since we're so lame and never drive to see each other, ha ha.
