Dairy Days 2011

Today we went to "dairy days" at the Thanksgiving Point Farm. The kids love going to the farm to see the animals and today they had everything a bit more cow themed.

We started the day off with some popsicles. What is not to love about a popsicle?

Zach loved the smack a cow game....

Logan loved throwing the cows out of the barrel...

We all enjoyed riding the "cowdapiller"....

Logan liked the chickens.

Zach liked the baby horse.

What happens after potty training

Zach has been fully potty trained for a few weeks now. Today when he was "done" using the bathroom we walked in to find this:

Yes - that is an ENTIRE roll of toilet paper in the toilet. Lets just say our plungers have been coming in handing around here!

When daddy comes home....

When we got home from work tonight the kids were all waiting for us out front. Turns out Lisa had bought them all water squirters that day. The had spent all afternoon "practicing" how to use them in the backyard and were "waiting" for Dustin to get home so they could soak him! It was quite entertaining to watch. Peyton and Zach were all decked out in their swim gear...and Dustin had barely gotten out of the car when the kids decided to attack.

I think the kids won. Sorry Dustin, maybe next time :)

Dustin's BIRTHDAY!

Didn't you hear? Today was Dustin's BIRTHDAY! Woot woot! We had Glen, Lisa, Peyton and Jackson in town to help us celebrate. So how does Dustin spend his birthday?

#1 - sleeps in (anything past 7am counts as sleeping in)
#2 - Beto's breakfast burritos
#3 - massage
#4 - haircut
#5 - bowling with everyone
#6 - helps our neighbor retrieve their car from the hospital
#7 - mexican food for dinner
#8 - cake and presents!

That is quite a bit to pack into one day....but we made it HAPPEN! Here are some of the bowling pictures. Zach had been bowling one time before, Logan had never bowled before. There were a total of EIGHT of us - four adults, four kids (ages 4, 3, 2, 1). Guess how long it took all eight of us to bowl one game....TWO HOURS! We opted NOT to bowl a second game (the kids lost interest after about the 5th frame).

Zach's first ball...he walked onto the bowling lane and slipped - oops...

The kids were literally fighting over the bowling balls...Peyton and Jackson keeping an eye out for "their" bowling ball.

Jackson with the perfect aim...

Logan giving it a shot...

Zach and Logan actually "sharing"...had to document this one.

Logan chilling with Grandpa Gray
Now the presents and cake part ended up happening after Logan fell asleep. I think this is the third birthday that Logan has been asleep for presents and cake. Zach of course was up front and helping his dad the whole way...don't they both look excited?

After a little bit the kids got bored...check out Peyton and Zach...they kept asking for cake!

Happy 36th Birthday Dustin! Yes that is a CROWN!

Birthday boy likes his cake!

Lemon Torte from the Cheesecake Factory (compliments of Costco)...very YUMMY!
