Prescott Fun Run!

 Today, May 11, 2012, was the annual Prescott Elementary School's Fun Run.  Kaden wanted us there to cheer him on!  Paxton & Versii had their own fun run in the field while we waited for Kaden's group to get to the track.

 Here's our first shot of Kaden as he noticed we were on the side lines.
 "Go Kaden!  Go!"

 Versii yells, "Watch Mom!  Watch me run down the hill!"  --Then he immediately fell and landed face down on the pavement.  Mostly he just scraped up his palms, but no blood.  
 Right after the took a few minutes for him to recover.

 "One minute everyone!"  --Kaden's mad dash to the finish line to complete his 11th lap!  They run on the high school track which is a 1/4 of a mile per lap.  Kaden ran 11 laps in 30 minutes!  That's 2.75 miles.  --For those of you who are runners, that's a 10:54 pace, right?  Not too bad for a kid who's almost 9 in 9 days!

Not the Dentist, Mom!?

 May 1, 2012 - Last year, Versii would only let the dentist count his teeth.  So I wondered how the visit would go this year.  He walked right in an did his x-rays like a trooper.  But as soon as they got him into the exam chair, he just sat quietly and started to tear up.  Kaden's such a great big brother, he sat in the chair next to Versii telling him "It's okay Si, they won't hurt you."  Luckily we got a great dental hygienist!  She showed every tool to Versii before she started to make sure he knew what it would do and how it worked.  But as soon as she went to show him the scraper pick, he freaked out.  Once we got him calmed back down, she completed his cleaning and he is cavity-free!  
Kaden doesn't much care for the dentist either, but he handles it like a pro.  And no new cavities!  Hurray!  Keep up the good brushing Kaden!

Pirates & A side of Car Show

 April 28, 2012 - Josh & I took the boys to see Pirates: Band of Misfits.  Which was okay, not great.  It was the first time we all went to a movie as a family since Versii was a baby.  Usually Versii and Paxton don't do to well in the theatre, so Josh & Kaden just go alone.  Versii did great.  And Paxton did well too, it wasn't until the last 30 minutes of the movie, that he started saying, "I want to pick a different movie."  --After the show, we were driving out of the theatre and discovered this Car Show going on in the neighboring parking lot.  They were offering free pony rides and Paxton really wanted to we waited in line.  Kaden & Versii weren't interested at all.  Kaden said, "They stick too bad, I don't even want to be around here."
 The boys enjoyed a few rides.

 And had a great time looking at the cool cars.

 ...Among them: The Mystery Machine & Mater.

 Josh wants an old bus like this someday, to take the boys camping in.

Celtic Woman

April 21, 2012 - Mom & I went to see Celtic Woman.  The show is called Believe.  Incredible voices!  Fabulous show!  Loved it!

I want the Silly Face One!

Recently we switched to the iphone, and one of the boys favorite apps is CamWow.  They call it "the silly face one."   --And they love to take pictures with Daddy.

Working with Grandpa

April 9, 2012 - Paxton loves his Grandpa.  And he loves to be doing whatever Grandpa is doing.  One of his favorite things to do is go "Bye bye with Grandpa in his truck."  This day Grandpa was working outside his shop and Paxton just wanted to be right there, the whole time!  But of course, we had to protect those tiny ears.  

Easter 2012

 April 7, 2012 - The Primary's Easter activity.  The boys made resurrection rolls, decorated cookies and enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt.
