Happy Father's Day! and some catch up....

I hope that all of the great Dad's out there that I know and love had a wonderful day! We spent the afternoon at my parents house. We had great food, great company and a great time. I wish we could do it more often. Life has been busy for everyone lately and it was nice to take a break, relax and celebrate with the fam. My kids LOVE their cousins so much, I wish we could live a little closer so we could spend more time together. I have alot of things to catch up on in the blogging arena. I can't find my cord to down load pictures. Still searching for things in boxes. However we have had a fun begining to our summer and enjoying being together. Aydon finished scout camp last week and had a great time. I love going with him too. They have alot of fun things for the boys to do. We have spent alot of time swimming the past couple of weeks. The water is a little cold for me but the kids love it. We went to see the movie UP last night, I loved it. However can anyone tell me why in almost every Disney movie they kill the Mom off or in this case the wife. Someone at Disney doesn't like Mom's very much. What is the deal with that. It was a cute movie though, very sweet. Jake is doing fabulous on his potty training. He lets me come in the bathroom with him but he tells me to look in the mirror until he is done. He only wears and diaper at night, we are still working on that part. He loves all of his character underware and changes constantly. Which is fine with me just as long as he wants to wear them. He LOVES Buzz Light Year just as much as Aydon did. We can't wait for Toy Story 3 to come out next summer. Lindsey is cute as ever she is really enjoying learning to spell things and writing her alphabet. She will write and letter and then draw a picture to match the letter. Between her and Lauren they could go through a stack of paper in one day. Lauren is becoming interested in music alot more lately. She lays on her bed in her room with her head phones on and rocks out to all of the old 80's cd's that Danny has given her. Too funny. Aydon is into speaking with an accent. When we are driving in the car he with tell me which accent we are going to use (he has a great english and Australian accent) and then we all speak that way to each other. He is hilarious. I will have to get some pictures up soon!
