W-I-L-D-C-A-T-S spells BOISE STATE

One Sunday after church Lainey and Corbin were anxious to change and get outside to play. I told Corbin to go find a shirt and he came back carrying Lainey's Arizona Wildcat cheerleader top (My parents are HUGE UofA fans). He was adamant about wearing it, so we let him. This video was taken a bit after his original actions, but we had to get it on video to send it to gmas and gpas (one set loved it, the other not so much!). When he first got the shirt on, he pointed to "WILDCATS" and said what he said all on his own. He really had no prompting in it at all. What a good boy!

Randomness

Here are some random pictures from June. I keep thinking I'll get more postings in each month, and then the next thing I know, the month is gone and I didn't do any! So here are some pictures from June...

Trampoline time....


We've just started letting Corbin have more freedom on the trampoline and he LOVES it!


My happy, content baby boy!


My very unhappy boy! We went with some friends to go pick some fruit at a fruit farm, and Corbin WAS NOT happy at all. He was whiny and fussy and cranky the whole time! Come to find out (after going to the doctor) he had an ear infection! Poor guy!


Lainey in a berry patch....


Fun in the water....



Toby's version of "fun in the water".....



I canned some diced tomatoes for the first time! (and without calling my mother in law even once....I usually call her about 25 times with questions each time I can something).


New bike! Lainey really had outgrown her old bike and has been asking for a new one. We told her she had to earn part of the money herself. We had a yard sale and she decided to wash up her old bike and sell it. She also had an "art" sale. She drew a bunch of pictures and sold them along with lemonade and punch. She earned herself a good amount of money. When she heard she had earned her share of the bike, she insisted that Nate take her that minute to go get it. She was very proud of it!



Hard-working husband.....
Nate really works hard on projects around the house and does an excellent job on them (he's really a perfectionist-probably has something to do with being an engineer). When we first moved in, there was actually a gate/fence here already. It was old and falling apart and an eye sore. Under it was just patchy grass and some bricks in a path (and lots of mud when it rained). Within the first week of living here, Nate tore the fence down. Later we laid the brick patio. It was nice to have an extension off the deck, and at the time we really didn't need a fence or gate up. Fast forward a few years and add a rambuncious two year old boy into the mix, and we needed a fence/gate. It was impossible to "keep him" in the back yard. Nate worked really hard and this and did a very nice job. He started VERY early in the morning and finished VERY late that night (or VERY VERY early the next day, depending on how you look at it). But it looks great and I can't wait to get it painted!




I made a camera cake for my neighbor.....
