Our little sunshine

Kennedy has figured out the stairs and loves going up and then waits for Mom to come and get her. She also loves Colin's hats, doesn't like the cute ones I put on her, but will wear Colin's all day.

Here she is showing off her new shades!

Dozer Day 2008!

Saturday, May 17th was Dozer Day. This is wear kids get to drive a bulldozer, excavator or tractor. This year Chad wasn't able to join us, so it was just myself with the two kids. The 95 degree weather was a little bit more then I could take, but overall it was a great day.

This is what we rode to get to the top of the hill for Dozer day!
Colin loved every moment.
He was so excited he was skipping.
Climbing the small excavator
Look at the dirt on his face... Just a wee bit hot (see sweat)
What we waited in line for. He was concentrating so hard that he didn't even smile.
Digging in the big sand pile, just like at Grandpa and Grandma's

Running through the tunnels
One final picture before we had to leave.
A few scratches, but all was well.
Kennedy was so happy to finally be in an air conditioned car.

Mother's Day Tea

Today, Colin's school had a special Mother's Day tea. We arrived at the school at 9:30am where tables were dressed in pink table covers and flowers in the center. Colin was so excited to see me that he almost knocked me over. We proceeded to sit down and the kids served the Moms a wonderful Blueberry Crumb Cake that they all helped make, fresh Strawberries and grapes. Of course a tea party isn't a tea party with tea so the option of having iced tea or hot tea was also available. Colin truly enjoyed bringing me my food and wanted to make sure that I ate every last bit. I do have to say that the crumb cake was pretty tasty. After everyone enjoyed their cake and tea the kids all lined up and sang to songs. During the lining up our little Col got a little sad as he wanted to be next to his good friend Zachary. Well all was good once he was able to stand next to him, but on the top riser. After finishing the songs they gave out the flowers and a shadow picture of themselves with a darling poem.

The kids getting lined up to sing.
Colin sad because he couldn't stand next to Zachary
Happy again, with Mom's flower
Sad because he loved the flower too much that it broke.
What a wonderful Mother's Day gift!
