Super Heroes!

Kade, Clint and their friend Duncan playing super heroes today. The red things on their arms have quite the story behind them. They were cleaning out and throwing away 'junk' at Redmond Minerals 3 years ago and Darryl couldn't stand to see them throw away these containers-- he figured there had to be a use for them. He brought home boxes of them(THOUSANDS of red tubes)! He gave away many of them and the boys loved using them to build towers and then crash them down. Since then they've been shakers, mix-it-up game tools, and muscles. Due to wear and tear we're down to about a dozen of them. What will we do when the 'red things' are gone?

Gary's Wedding

Gary and Jasha's wedding finally came. Kade was so excited to see the temple. He was even more excited to see Uncle Gary/Greg/Kelby/Jason. It didn't matter which one he never called them by the right name anyway. He was their shadows the whole weekend. Kebly just returned home from his mission too so it was great to see him again.

As soon as Gary and Jasha were out of the temple Kade grabbed a hold of Gary's hand and never let go.

"Silly Granny has a tie!"

The boys were blowing bubbles for a few minutes this morning then, I heard the sound of liquid being poured all over the cement followed by a lot of giggling. The boys discovered that bubbles are very slippery and make for even more fun when you slide around on the cement. I realize this isn't a safe activity-- especially on the stairs but I only took a few pictures then I ended their fun. They kept falling down and laughing so hard they could barely breathe. I felt bad ending the fun it had 'trip to the ER' written all over it.

After 9 months of waiting!

Kade thought he was being tortured daily because he, "just wanted to slip-n-slide," everyday for the past 9 months. Needless to say he was ecstatic today when the weather finally was warm enough to pull out the good old slide. Abby was killing me with her girlieness. She had to wear her matching skirt and hat even though once the hat was soaked it flopped in front of her eyes so she would have to lift it up to see anything. Click the pictures to get a better look!

Old McDonald's Farm

Today for story time we went to Old McDonald's farm (as Ms. Sally called it). The boys kept saying, "This is so fun!" They got to see and pet sheep, cows, horses, goats, and llamas. The llamas were Kade's favorite. When the demonstrator said, "These are llamas. Have any of you seen a llama before?" Kade piped up and said, "Me! Diego was riding one!" What would we do without good old television to show us what a 'real' llama looks like. Ms. Sally had on a cow costume so on the way home Kade said, "Ms. Sally looked like a cow. Our Ms. Sally is the silliest Ms. Sally in the world."
This was the only picture I got that was worth keeping. The boys would move just as I snaped each picture.

Inside the box

We had boards and a hole on Monday, sprinkle pipe adjusted on Tuesday, and sand on Wednesday. That has been our week and that is all the boys have thought about all week. Since the arrival of the sand the boys have spent most of their waking moments in the box. It's the first thing they want to do in the morning (7:00 AM), I usually talk them out of it because it's so cold. The only hold off until around 8:00.

We went to feed the ducks the other day at a local pond. I was getting the boys out of the car and grabbed the bag of stale hamburger buns and Clint said, "Awwwwww. They like ketchup." I guess Clint's had some conversation with the ducks in which they let him know they prefer their bread with ketchup.
I always ask the boys why I just want to love them so much and squeeze them all the time but I guess this is my answer.

Another thing Clint said:
The other day Clint was sad/tired and I was holding him. Out of no where he said, "Pet my head." I chuckled and asked him if he wanted me to pet him like a kitty cat. He replied with his pouty voice, "Ya." I rubbed his head from side to side petting him like a cat. He grabbed my hand, "No, no. Like this." Then he took my hand and started rubbing his head from back to front. I did it a few times and he said, "That's better."

And another Clintism:
Lately any time Clint eats something and he thinks it tastes good he starts rubbing his belly. It's very common for him to start rubbing his belly while he's chewing a bite, take another bite, rub some more. Once in a while he'll actually say, "I just love this."

We're making a sandbox! Darryl decided he was going to make us a sandbox and that is all it took. He came home from work today with wood in his truck and the digging began. The boys even helped so our lesson for the night was 'when we're helping we're happy.' I loved that Kade watched how Darryl shoveled and then copied by pushing his shovel into the ground with his foot. Too cute!

Sit n' Spin

Kade had a blast with his cute friend Abby today. I really think they could have spent the whole day together. They never fought and they were just so fun to watch together. They figured out this fun little game of sitting on the Sit 'n Spin together with a bowl of apples in the middle. They would spin the whole time and then you'd hear, "It's your turn to have a red apple," or "It's your turn to have a yellow apple." As you can see it was tricky to get a bit while spinning. They would spin until one of them slipped off. Then they'd get back on and do it again.

More Info. About Food Co-Op Plus Another

Many want more info. so this is it in a nutshell:
There really isn't much to it, you fill out the application and mail, or fax it in along with your check for the total and then on the day of pick up you go between 9-9:45 AM to St. Mary's Catholic Church in Park City to pick it up. You walk in they give you a list of what you put in you boxes and then you put it in you car and viola you have food! I'll be going in May if anyone else wants me to pick it up for you.-- Remember sign up monthly so if you don't want to do it one month (or ever again) you don't have to.

There is another Food Co-Op that I'm just getting a little more information about. If you want to know more about that one let me know. It is an organic food co-op and all the food is farmed down near Springville. With that one is runs for 18 weeks in the summer and you have to sign up for the complete 18 weeks and you pick up every week. It's mainly vegetables they did say the would have some fruits once in a great while. This is the food co-op we thought we were signing up for initially but when I went to get the food and it wasn't organic we new something wasn't right. So I'm still investigating the organic food co-op.
You can sign up for the second co-op by going to Print off the application and send it in with $250 for a 1/2 share or $475 for a full share. You will get more info. later but about mid-June you will be able to start picking up your produce weekly in Park City if you live in the Heber area. There are other pick-up locations but you'd have to look into where they are at.
