Earlier this evening I was complaining to Dana about not having anything to do in the evenings. So I decided what better way to spend the evening than sharing some new pictures of the boys? Then I tried uploading the pictures and almost decided it wasn't worth it. Gotta love the way this site works sometimes.
Ok, so we got the boys signed up for soccer this weekend. I keep hearing that soccer is big around here but it isn't like what we're used to. The Spring season is almost like an afterthought. The kids don't get on one team and stay there. Instead they go through a "draft" each year. We'll see how that works out. Also, soccer and baseball completely overlap each other so we're down to one sport now. Both boys chose soccer without a moment's hesitation.
We also took the boys by the Space and Rocket Center to see the free stuff. (We'll save the paying trip for later) They were quite impressed with the Saturn V as well as the SR71. We spent quite a bit of time in the gift shop too. Neat stuff if you ever get the chance.
And one more note. I was late getting home today because I WAS DOING SOMETHING! Yay me! I'm finally starting to earn my pay. Sort of.
On to the pictures:
The boys got some dinosaur tattoos and stuck them on their arms. I tried to get them to show their guns for a photo but Kevin wouldn't really cooperate. I couldn't decide which one to show because they both came out cute so I'll show them both.
I just love the look on Cade's face. Cameron has a usual Cameron look. Kevin wouldn't flex.
I had to include this photo of Kevin and Cameron when we first got this puzzle way back two houses ago. They've grown a little. Please excuse Cameron in his underwear. He didn't have any idea this photo would ever be posted on the internet for the whole world to see.
Cameron and I went for a bike ride this weekend out behind the neighborhood and found this new-to-us short trail through the trees. The boys have probably ridden their bikes more in the last month than they did all last year. Cameron was going to take Kevin to this place yesterday but about 30 seconds into the ride Kevin crashed. He's ok though. The gravel broke his fall. He came limping back home with some gnarly road rash on his arm and leg.
Sometimes Cade rides his "special bike" and sometimes he rides with me. For clarification, his special bike is his bicycle. His dirt bike is his plastic 2 wheeler. And his "loud loud bike" is his dirt bike (which he isn't allowed to ride yet but wants to).
Two quick stories I have to share about Cade. Last week Dana and Cade were paying for the groceries at Wal-mart. When they finished and were leaving, Cade told the cashier, "Thank you for shopping at Wal-mart!" Does that mean Dana goes to Wal-mart too often?
A few days before that he was telling Dana he wanted to get bigger. Usually, when he does this he says he wants to get bigger so he can ride the loud loud bike. But this time, when Dana asked him why he wants to get bigger he replied, "So I can drive." Where did that come from? I guess he just decided to skip the small stuff and go big.
On a related note, Cameron recently told Dana he's worried about learning to drive because he's afraid someone might hit him from behind when he's stopped. Where did he get that? When I was his age I was poking sticks in the dirt and pretending to shift. Rules of the road never crossed my mind.
