Mud Run

I am not sure why they called it a mud run, because we were all pretty clean at the end of the race.. Jamie, Me, Carries Sister, Carrie and Nick I am thinking it should have been "the hot desert run with a pool at the end."

Phoenix Zoo

Note to self... Never go to the zoo in May, lol. We actually got to the zoo when it opened up because we knew that it was going to get hot, but it didn't matter. Within an hour the kids were hot, tired, hungry and the list goes on.
Here we are before heading into the zoo. Tons of turtles in the water below, pretty cool.

It was a fun day! The kids had fun seeing all the animals.

Troy's First Time Swimming

The pool has finally warmed up enough for Troy to go swimming. For as much as Troy loves the tub, it would make sense that he would like swimming in the pool too. Little bud hanging out in his floaty. Matt and Troy playing in the waterfalls.

Crabby & Shelly

Georgia and Madison received a couple of new pets for their birthday
They are hermit crabs. The orange one is Georgia's crab, Shelly. The brown and tan one is Madison crab, Crabby. Crabby has a big pincher claw and has pinched each of the girls pretty good. Brooklyn has the pink shell. The pink one is really shy, at first we thought that it might be dead, but the crabs are nocturnal and do move around at night.

Happy 6th Birthday Georgia & Madison

I cant believe that Georgia and Madison are 6. The years are flying by...
Madison and Georgia told us they wanted eggs and bacon for breakfast and wanted the whole family to come in and wake them up. That's what we did! Brook and I got up at 5:15 made bacon & eggs then blew up balloons. Then got Matt, Justice, Troy and King into the twins room to wake them up with a "Happy Birthday". Later on that day Brook and I took cupcakes to school so that Georgia and Madison could celebrate with all their friends. After school the girls opened presents. We didnt stay home long because the girls wanted to go to Peter Piper Pizza to play and have dinner. After that we took a drive up on base so that the girls could see Matt. Matt took us all for a drive in the "truck" around the flight line. The girls loved it.
Happy Birthday to the sweetest little girls.

Birthday Party

Georgia and Madison had a great turn out for their birthday party. So many of their friends came to celebrate. Our friend Jeanie, Arden and the girls getting the pinata and the goody bags ready for the party. We tried to setup the party using a carnival theme; face painting, bouncer, can toss and water squirt game. After games the kids all took a couple of swings at the pinata. Here is the best picture that I could get of the girls and all their friends.

The party was a success, thank goodness it only lasted 2 hours.

Mothers Day

What a great Mother's Day. I just love my family so much. I woke up to breakfast in bed,; bacon and eggs. My favorite. The girls all make such wonderful presents at school. They were so excited about them. Later on that day the girls and I planted my mothers day presents; a lemon tree, flower that Brooklyn picked out and a rose tree. Here are some picutes of the girls trying to dig up the very hard ground.

The kids, Matt and I sat around the pool all day and relaxed. It was perfect!
