Summer contined...

Wow we sure had a great summer. It is hard to keep up on blogging about it all. But the boys loved especially playing in the water. We got them a slip n slide and it was great.
We had a lot of hot days mostly in July and August. June was a bit chilly though. Kaden just cracked me up he would just run across it and keep running. Spence would do a "pete rose" thats what he called it evey time it was great.

Another fun summer activity we did was go to the softball park to watch watch Chad play on a team, and as you can see the boys loved going and playing ball on the fields after the game.

These two really are best buddies at first we worried about the age differnce but Kaden adores Spencer. And Spence is really good protective big brother. They do tease a little and a lot but they really do love each other.

Oh the sweet days of summer. I have to just soak it up, I wish it could be this way forever. Arent pictures fun? They help our memories last forever.

We have had such a fun and eventful summer. June was a little chilley, so I am glad I got the boys in swim lessons in July. It was great I was so proud of both of them. Spencers swimming was like the highlight of my whole summer. I was worried for a while that he would be like me in the swim pool(not too graceful). I love the water but am not a good swimmer. I am so glad he has the Vests genes for swimming. He just loves the water now and he goes off the diving board and he has a great stroke. I am sorry I am done bragging now. Onto my next little guy Kaden, he did great too. We did Mommy and me and Miss Debbie is just our favorite teacher. Kaden had a little fear at first but by the end of the week he loved the water too. In a few years he will swim like a fish just like Spencer. And Chad did the best thing for all of us this summer he bought a swim pass. I hope it stills stays warm for a couple more weeks so we can use it all. And then off to the Orem rec this winter. Yay! More to come soon on our adventures this summer...

Is there anything better then t-ball. We have had so much fun watching Spencer play t-ball this year. He has loved it too. He is getting so much better at it too. Chad had a lot of fun being one of his coaches. Spencer has always been lucky to have great coaches in every sport he has done.

Chad and Spencer would practice almost every night. Chad is a great teacher. Spencer is now learning how to catch and does great in the outfield too.

We cant wait till next year to see if he will go the next level which is pitch baseball. I am not sure Spanish Fork is pretty strict on the ages and stuff, so he might be doing t-ball again either way its great. He just has fun and so do we. And little Kaden is chomping at the bit to get his turn too.

Hey here is Beaner. Well sorry I always download my pictures backwords. Here is the afterparty at Graduation it was very fun at Grandma Nancys. I gave Justine a little Strawberry shortcake doll. It was something her and Kimber used to love to play with when I used to tend them when they were really little ,and I promised each of them I would give them one when they graduated. I dont know it is silly I guess but it just brings back fun memeries for me.
Justine looks so cute and we are so proud of the graduate. Have fun at snow. I know you will loved it there and now it has so much more stuff there then when I was there.

Woo Hoo!

Here I Spencer at his graduation from Kindergarten with me and Chad and Kaden. It was so fun the Teachers were great this year.

Here he is with his Grandmas and Grandpas to support him. We are so lucky to have them both here. He loves going to both their houses so much. Sometimes more then his own.

Kaden just loves his big brother so much and wants to be just like him.

Spencer had a great time he knew all the songs, he still gos around the house singing them and Kaden even is learning to sing them too.

Spencer loved kindergarten. His best friend is right by him in the black little suit. His name is Daniel they are great buddies they both can not wait to go first grade now ans have 2 recesses and eat lunch at the schooll.

Kids will be Kids

Having children is the biggest blessings in our lives. Some days get crazy and I am wiped out about every night but it is all worth it. I always wonder how people can do it with alot of kids. These two are just the funniest they are always dressing up doing funny things here they are star wars guys but Kaden wanted to where his cowboy hat too.
Here are my little cooks in the kitchen. Kaden just loves to cook every minute he can. And Spencer loves to try it out but gets to busy teasing Kaden. They are starting to play together really well. And Grandma Nancy made them these cute aprons of our favorite team.

The boys really wanted kittens. So we got some from Steve and Rachelle. The boys were so excited Spencer named his Nike(the black one) and Kaden named his Bolt(the white one). Spencer got very comfy with them and loved to hold them and play. Kaden liked them from a distance. The kittens were really cute, they would wrestle and play together well. But we never have good luck with cats and they have ran away now. That lasted about 2 months. They were cat #5 and #6 since we have been married. I dont know if we will be able to talk Chad into getting any more. Oh well it was fun while it lasted.

This picture cracks me up. In April the boys wanted to get in the little swimming pool and it was cold. So I tol d Spencer maybe in the summer. Well he listened but I looked a minute later and Kaden had dragged out the pool and was filling it up. Oh well it was fun then they found these big long water squirters they are holding here ,and just had a ball squirting each other and the cats. Fun, fun I cant wait till thi summer we have a lot of fun stuff planned.

Spring Break

Over spring break we had so much fun. I know this is a late blog(a few months too late.) BUt I just had to blog these pictures of the fun the kids had. These pictures are kind of backwords but I will just tell it as the pictures appear.

WE went on Friday to a really fun aquarium in Salt Lake. It was really fun. There was lots of different rooms with different types of sea animlas and all kinds of kid friendly things to do. Spencer loved the jelly fish, octopus, and alligators. He also got to touch a sting ray.

This is a pirate ship we saw there, the kids loved to play there and all the fun spots. WE saw the sharks near there and some turtles. We dont have many pictures of Kaden having fun here. He was so scared he did not like it at all. He just ran away. It was pretty funny maybe when he is older we will take him back.

Spencer got to drive a pretend boat and haul us all around. He felt so big.

Thursday we went to the Lehi Pool. It was packed everyone in Utah County was there. But the kids loved it. It was so fun.

The whole pool is very kid friendly, shallow everywhere, no one really has to worry about their kids to much. There was big playgrounds, slides and a big bucket of water that spilled every few minutes. Kaden loved that(Ha Ha).

Wednesday we went bowling at the West Mountain lanes. We had a great time. Spencer is getting pretty good he had fun bowling with Jeffs girls. And I think he might have been in the lead at the end. He was pretty proud. I think I was in last in my group oh well, so Im not great at bowling, big deal.

Kaden just had fun sitting on the computer, that said "do not sit here." And he is very stubborn and would not move and he loved pushing all the buttons. This kid definetely goes against the grain, he is busy and keeps our lives full of fun and lots of laughs.

We had a great Spring Break maybe next year we can get Chad in on the fun too. And maybe go on a trip or do some fun stuff around here again.
