4th of July


We didnt do too much but were invited to the neighbors home for a bbq. So here is proof we DO get out of the house once on awhile lol

Jess took all the pictures and its mostly the boys :)

It was a bit warm outside so cars were brought out for them to play with inside



They made a friend while playing with the stones outside, Ty especially liked her but he likes all girls






They did really well with the cat and just loved him




Their favorite past time of the day was drawing with chalk. it occupied them for quite awhile although their clothes became nice and colorful.


Ty liked running around without his shoes, the grass was nice and cushy but Cayden didnt want any part of it.



Chantelle trying to play pool


Tammy our lovely hostess


More coloring



Larry


(L) Jesse and (R) Bobbi, she is an ID twin also


Trisha, her daughter is the one Ty likes


Even more coloring



Trish again laughing because she thought the flash of the camera was lightning


Jared (teacher at the school) and his son


They did some ground fireworks until the rain came.
The boys did pretty good with them and didnt freak out. They kept their distance tho and after each one would say "all done"


Last picture before leaving.


So that was our exciting day

Our Ride to the Mountains


We took a ride to the mountains a couple weeks ago just to get out of the house.
Nothing too special since the sun can be scorching and the boys can only do so much and tolerate so much.
We did head to an area that takes one towards the El Paso Gap. Didnt go as far as we had liked but it was still nice to go for a ride and see some different scenery.

Ty and Cayden

Took this picture when we had to stop and fix the straps on Ty's car seat. he wiggles a lot and gets it up on his neck.




After arriving in a little town called Queen (dont blink) we realized we werent going to be able to go farther or we would run out of gas so we headed back towards and area called Sitting Bull Falls.
This is the picnic area we stopped at to have lunch and stretch.

Cayden


Ty


Pictures of the view and area


.....and Jess


This spot has a trail that you can take to the falls. Its for those who like a hiking challenge, 5 miles long ^=^


Chantelle and one of the boys




Ty just hanging out


The girls took a short hike up to check it out.


My camera takes really bad picture in zoom so this is the top of the mtn near the tail.


And this is the same picture taken through the binoculars.



Diaper changing time
