Preschool Graduate

Cooper graduated from Preschool last night! He absolutely loved preschool this year! His teacher, Ms. Heather was awesome, Cooper loved every single day of school, and learned a lot! I can't believe my Cooper will be starting Kindergarten in the fall, he is growing up way too fast. Last night each of the preschool kids read a page from a book they wrote called "When I am Big," and Ms. Heather talked about how they are getting big and will never be in Preschool again....that hit me like a ton of bricks, my Cooper is getting big so fast. I love you Coop, I'm so proud of how hard you worked this year and how much you learned!

Sorry this video is so shaky, Dane was on my lap and kept grabbing the camera.

New Family Toy

Thursday Mason picked up a fun new toy on his lunch break, a little 110 cc Pit Bike. He found a really great deal on Craigslist, and said he wanted something really fun to do with his boys, he promised they would always wear helmets, and I was sold on the idea.  We took it out to the desert by our house for the first time on Saturday, and we all loved it, especially Cooper and Dane, we had two very happy little boys on our hands!

I said "smile," this is the pose that they came up with.

Fun with Gramps

Last week my Dad was here in Las Vegas on Business, he was super stressed and busy all week but he extended his trip an extra day so that he could stay and play with us. We had a blast, the boys sure love their Gramps! Friday night we went to dinner at Outback, then went to the movies to see the Lorax. Saturday morning my Dad pulled the boys in the bike trailer and they went on a 3-hour bike ride exploring the dessert, they came home with pockets full of bullet shells and other boy treasures. Then we drove the Redrock loop and Cooper, Dane & Gramps made friends with a couple of wild Burroughs. Next we went to Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, and lastly we finished off the day with yummy shakes & burgers at In n Out. I'm so glad that my Dad stayed an extra day with us, we had a great time with him, and the boys loved every minute of it!

This picture was taken in front of a green screen at Shark Reef. Cooper talked Gramps into buying this background instead of the cool shark background, silly boy.

Quick visit from the Sealys

Last week our good friends, the Sealys were in town and stopped by for a quick visit. It was great getting to catch up with Jackie for a few hours, while Cooper, Dane, Kenna and Halee played together. We sure miss them, and can't wait for them to move back to Las Vegas the end of this year!

Halee liked hugging Dane :)

Cooper thinks he's too cool to smile for the camera, I think he was showing off for cute Kenna. Silly boy!

Super Dane got Big!

Lately Dane has been really attached to the cape that I made him for his first Halloween. He wears it most of the day, everyday. He's so cute in it, even if it has gotten a little small for did my Super Dane get so big? I think it might be time for me to make Dane a new cape.
Same cape...bigger boy.

White Coat Ceremony

Last night UNLV held a white coat ceremony for Mason's Dental School class.
The White Coat Ceremony is kind of like initiation before the students get to start working on patients in the Dental Clinic.
I am so proud of Mason, and how hard he has worked to get to this point.
He still has a lot of really hard work ahead of him and 3.5 more years of Dental School, but this was a really exciting milestone!

Proud of my Hubby

Not 30 Yet

On Sunday Mason officially entered the last year in his twenties, crazy but true. 

These boys LOVE their Dad!

Mason saved 2 of his 29 candles, so that Cooper & Dane could each blow one out. What a great Dad!
We Love you Mason! You are the Best!
