Luke is 5!

I love this kid!  And I can't believe he is 5 now!  I can't believe that both of my boys are as old as they are.  It makes me sad.  But it has been so fun watching them grow up.  Luke has such an imagination.  You tell him to go play in his room and he will play for hours and make up stories.  So he was pretty fun and easy to get presents for.   Since Ben had his birthday, Luke has been asking if it is his birthday yet everyday.  And every time that we go to Wal-Mart he picks stuff out for his birthday.  One thing he asked for over and over was a pumpkin carver to carve pumpkins.  He is such a funny kid.  When his birthday finally came, he had quite the eventful day!

It started out with breakfast.  I was stressing his breakfast.  He is the pickiest eater alive.  I made pancake squares.  He LOVED them.
Then for lunch he requested Pei Wei.  Noodles without the chicken. :)
For dinner we ate at The Pie.  Oh my gosh it was so good.  Their cheesy pull apart bread is delish!

Tracy Aviary

For FHE we decided to take the boys to the Tracy Aviary.   We had so much fun together as a family.  And I am just in love with the way Remii is with the boys.  He is just so natural at being a dad, I love it!  It was fun exploring the place and seeing all of the cool birds.  Our favorite part was the owl exhibit.  It made me want a pet owl... if you can have one. :)

Luke carried this giant tree branch around!  He loves finding sticks and such!

Ben turns 9!

Ben turned 9 last Wednesday.  We had to stretch his birthday out a bit because my family was in Vancouver.  So we celebrated it on his birthday with my sister her hubby.  We started the morning out with an awesome overnight breakfast.   Then we headed over to his school to celebrate with his class.  

And that night we went to Trafalga.  That was so much fun!  I love having the Pass of all Passes because everything that we do is unlimited!  The only thing that Ben asked for was a bike for his birthday.  That is his favorite thing to do!  The bike that we got Ben was about 2 sizes to big.  But he got a lot of fun things that night and it ended up being an awesome birthday!

 Last night was Ben's final birthday celebration with my family.  My parents got him... A NEW BIKE... that fits!  He was so excited!  And it was so fun seeing his face when the blind fold was taken off and the bike was revealed. We sure do love our Ben!  He is such a smart and fun kid to have around.  We had a fun filled birthday celebration week!
