Auntie Jen's Windrowers

We got a call from Auntie Jen telling us that they were windrowing the field behind their house and wanted to know if the boys wanted to ride along. HELLO....what little boy doesn't want to ride in a tractor? jen and I had a nice peaceful ride by ourselves while James, Doug and all three boys rode in another windrower.

Bubble Wands

Nana bought the boys bubble wands so they had to try them out right away. Yes Mason is wearing the swim goggles on purpose. He says "They are for safety. It's to keep bubbles out of my eyes." I never knew bubbles were dangerous...

Colored Bubbles

Colored bubble are VERY messy bubbles! The boys got good use out of the colored bubbles that Josh & Miranda got them last year. They required a good hosing down before they could come in the house.

Playing at Nana's

We celebrated Father's Day and my dad's birthday with a BBQ at my parent's house. My uncle Glenn and his boys were there in addition to my Grandparents. The boys has fun playing soccer, getting wet in the pool and "fishing" for sharks in Papa's boat.

4th Birthday Party!

We celebrated the boys 4th birthday with a chaos filled superhero bash. I made a variety of super hero capes for the kids to wear and there is nothing cuter than a herd of kiddos all in their super hero finest :)We also had a mock telephone booth for the kids to change into their capes in. There were superman themed cupcakes and pinatas. Grandma and Grandpa Dodge even bought the boys Iron Man and Captain America costumes to wear at their party. We of course had lots of food the best part being the amazing pulled pork that I talked my parents into cooking for the event. (No small task seeing as my dad just had his knee replaced the week before.) There were about 60 people at the party and we were excited that both of my grandparents were able to make is out as they really haven't been feeling well lately. My uncle Glenn and his two boys from Texas were even able to come out. They had just flown into PDX earlier that day. The weather was great and the kids had a ton of fun jumping on the trampoline that Nana & Papa Raymond got for the boys. We even a face painter creating master pieces on the kids arms and faces thanks to Grandma Dodge. We were all exhausted when it was over but had a blast! )

A Hamilton Birthday

The boys got three days of birthday fun. On Thursday they celebrated their birthday at school, Friday was their real birthday and Saturday was their birthday party at our house. Since the Hamilton's were not going to be able to come to their party Jen brought Carson and Peyton over on Friday to bring the boys their presents and play. They had lots of fun running around the house with their super hero capes on and of course nothing beats a cardboard box.

Strawberry Parade 2012

This was the second time that the boys have been to the Strawberry Parade in Lebanon. We had rain, clouds and sunshine. Olivia even dressed up as our own little Strawberry princess for the occasion. Thankfully Niki and Mike saved us spots which made it much easier to take the boys. Mike even bought all the kids balloon balls to play with from one of the vendors. The boys got lots of candy and really liked seeing the fire trucks and horses. Tia, Jarrod, Issac, Arien, Kiley, Corbin, Erika, Danny, Carson, Ava, Javon were also there.
