Summer fun

We had a weekend filled with water last week. It started off on Friday, when the kids and I surprised Kyle by taking him to a fancy hotel in Boise that had a great indoor pool. It even had a 1ft. deep kiddie pool. Carson and Kylie loved it! I had won a free room at this new hotel, and I thought it would be fun to use around Kyle's birthday. Then on Saturday we went to the park in Boise where they held Plexus' summer company party. We had free admission to the zoo, a good B.B.Q, music and face painting with clowns. We then went swimming at my parents house and had another B.B.Q over there with some friends. Their pool has been down for repairs for a couple of months, and we are so glad it is fixed now. It was a fun weekend all around!

Happy Birthday to Kyle!

Only one more year left in his twenties! I am sure that makes him feel old! I surprised Kyle by having this shed in our backyard on Wednesday. He got it one day early. He was really amazed that I was able to pull that off by myself, without him knowing. He had such a funny look on his face when he finally noticed it out there! He is very happy with it.

It even matches our did I do a good job!! We went to pizza for dinner, and then had cake and ice cream at our house.
Kylie even shared her red balloon with him!

There was a pretty funny surprise in that pink bag! You can tell by the look on his face

He has one more surprise coming tonight. I planned a special evening for the four of us! I hope he remembers all this when my birthday comes around =0)

Happy 4th of July!

We spent our holiday in Eastern Idaho this year. We caravaned over with some friends of ours here in Nampa. That alone was pretty fun, we had two way radio's to communicate with. Kyle was getting pretty creative with his, and he kept us all entertained. We started off the festivities with a parade in Idaho Falls on Friday morning. Thanks to Kyle's brother and his family, we had front row seats. We then went to Kyle's parents house for a family B.B.Q. The day was topped off with the I have ever seen. I think we will have to make a tradition of watching them there every year. Watching the fireworks and listening to the music always makes us really reflect on the freedoms that we are so blessed to have in this country. I always think about those who are sacrificing and serving to protect our country and I am so grateful for them!

playing with sparklers while we wait for the show to start, Kylie is very messy from her sugar fest

Carson is not quite sure what to think about those sparklers. Should he be scared or having fun?
