Blueberry Farm

We LOVE the blueberry farm, especially when they do their movie nights! When I heard they were playing Frozen I knew we had to go :>) We packed some dinner and met up with some friends and got picking!

I don't even really like blueberries, but my kids LOVE them and have a blast picking them off the bushes. And listening to a couple hundred kids sing the Frozen songs was highly entertaining :>)

Pinewood Derby

Brendan has been super excited for the Pinewood Derby ever since we saw the one last year, and he and Rich had a great time making his car! It wasn't the fastest out there, but here is proof that he won a race :>)
 He won the award for "Most Futuristic"
 This is one crazy but FUN group of boys!!!

Storm Game

Rich took the boys to the Storm game, it was all you can eat hot dog night and the boys each ate 4. That makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it but they thought it was awesome!

 and of course they had to have ice cream :>)

they had a super fun "boy night!"

Memorial Day

The weather has been all over the place lately, but yesterday it was supposed to be 92 which made it a good day to go to the beach :>) We went with our friends the McDowells and had a great time!

We also tried to make sure we talked with the kids about the real meaning of Memorial Day. Carson has 2 little boys with at school that he is very good friends with whose father was killed in action, and that helped put things in perspective for them I think. So grateful for all the people who have sacrificed their lives for our country!!!

Rock N Glow

While watching the last season of the Bachelor with my gal pals, we saw Juan Pablo and one of the girls do a Rock n Glow run in Salt Lake. It looked like fun, and when my friend Meagan saw that they were doing one locally she convinced some of us to do it. It was super fun!  
 Our team name was "The Real Housewives of the Bachelor" (which Rich thought was kind of lame but I thought was funny!)

It was only a 5K, but it was on some little dirt trails in wine country in the pitch dark with 2000 people. I am truly amazed that none of us rolled an ankle in the process! Afterwards there was quite the dance party. And then we went to Denny's which was also awesome :>)

the shirts were awesome, thanks Heather for helping us make them!

Father-Sons (and some girly time)

the boys look forward to the Father-Sons camp out every year. This year did not disappoint! There were all the hot dogs and Doritos that my boys could ask for, plus some great time with their dad.

 Rapelling was one of the highlights for them.

 Our friends the Allens from baseball came which was lots of fun!

 and while the boys were away the girls played! We met up with my friends Kyra and Niki and their girls for mani-pedis (this was the girls' first time to a salon and they were SO GOOD! Couldn't even believe they were my kids ha ha). We also listened to the frozen soundtrack in the car the WHOLE night :>)

Afterwards we went to chik-fil-a and the girls said it was super fun with "no boys" (in fact, Rich came back inside soon after they left to get something he forgot and Sabrina quickly made him leave because he was a boy). We also did other fun things like read loads of Barbie books and play princess memory in the princess tent. Love these girls :>)

Fire House Field Trip

It's that time of year for field trips, I had heard that kindergarten went to the San Diego zoo at this school but budget cuts must be bad this year because we walked to the fire station instead :>) The kids thought it was great though, and the firemen put on a good little show for them!
 Here is Carson with his buddy Brennen

 they got the ladder truck our and one of the guys climbed up to the top, it was a super windy day and I can't imagine it was very still for him up there!
It was fun to hang out with my little buddy for the morning, he is much more fun to be around when he is happy lol :>)
