My Cute Monster

We have had such wonderful weather as of late, that it would be a crime NOT to take pictures of my children. We did find out why Kenny looked so miserable when I took his picture in the bluebonnets, he had a fever of 101.4. He is much better now, back to his usual antics. I would be remiss though if I did not get a few pictures of "L." I don't know what it is, other than my bias, but I think she is such an adorable little girl!

A Bright Day in the Bluebonnets

I saw this field of bluebonnets on the way home from Kenny's preschool class, and I asked Kenny if he  wanted to take some pictures. Normally he's always game for a few pictures, but he shook his head and replied "no." So instead of abiding his wishes I asked if we could just take a couple of pictures only. He begrudgingly relented.


It was so bright outside, and think he may be coming down with a cold or something, but the champ stuck it out. Kimberly doesn't approve of the pictures because Kenny's hair is all sorts of wonky, and he's not dressed in "cute" clothes. Oh well, that's what happens when Dad's in charge, LOL.

A Day at the Temple

We had a fantastic opportunity to go to the temple this  past week. You really can leave your worries at the doors, and enjoy the peace that temple service offers. A great thank you to my mom for watching the kids while we were up in Dallas.


Children are wonderful, but it is essential to get away from them every now and again, and remember why you fell in love with your spouse to begin with.

Hanging out with Firemen

Kenny and his preschool class had a great opportunity go and visit the Woodway fire and police station.



I don't think there was one picture that Kenny was NOT playing with his belly button...



Officer Dudley did a great job talking to the kids and explaining to them about what the police and firemen did. Sure, some of the concepts were WAY over the kids heads, but it was fun none the less.

And yes, that is a box of Shipley's donuts in the police station...


The part that I enjoyed the most was Officer Dudley's talk about what to do if you're in a house that is on fire. He told a story about some firefighters going into a house that had two kids in it, and when the firemen approached, the kids were very frightened at their appearance and they ran further into the house. This caused the kids to sustain significantly more sever injuries. So what Officer Dudley wanted to do was put on his fire gear, and show the kids that there was no reason to be afraid of firemen.


Then he got on all fours and demonstrated what he would look  like if he were entering a burning building. So a child would see this:
and would hear a firemen screaming, in his muted voice, "Fire Department! Fire Department!" They also swing the butt of the axe from side to side to assist them as they feel their way though a smoke filled building.

The kids also were able to sit in the fire truck and play with all the sirens and horns. Every single one of them wore a huge grin as they sat behind the wheel of the fire engine.



Fore some reason, the girls did not want to have their pictures taken with Officer Dudley
