LeAnn is going to hate me....

Well I was looking through the pictures on my computer today and happened upon this one. I thought it was too funny not to share. You better read this post fast though because I'm sure LeAnn will be deleting it shortly...

Odds and Ends

Whenever I do a blog post I look for pictures I can clump together into one event to blog about. When looking through iPhoto today I realized that I had a few odds and ends sitting in my photo library. Kent really has grown up a lot since we have been back in Washington. He has become a whole lot more independent and we love it (for the most part). Sorry I just finished uploading and there was more than I thought, 11 to be exact, don't feel obligated to look at all of them.

Helping Dad clean the car

In Utah our landlords let us borrow this tunnel for a few days, Kent loved crawling through it.

Kent has learned to love corn on the cob and can eat at least one and a half cobs himself. Ammon HATES to change his poopy diapers after he eats corn or watermelon.

One of Kent's new fascinations is the doggie door, he doesn't go through it but enjoys making faces at us inside.

My mom and dad brought home Slinkies for the boys from their trip to California, obviously they should be used with adult supervision.

We have a small pantry behind the door in the picture. It also contains Wiley's dog treats. Wiley will go in front of the door and whine when he wants one. Kent now thinks that if he does the same thing he will get something to eat too. I found a bag of chocolate chips inside and now give him one whenever he decides to "beg" for a treat.

Kent loves calculators, a future mathematician perhaps, here he is using one to cover his head...who know?

Kent discovered the box of straws we keep in one of the drawers, which he decided to dump all over the kitchen floor. This picture doesn't do the mess justice.

Thank you Clark!

Lance's mission buddy Clark (I love that name, but can you imagine the crap I would get if I named our next kid Clark) drove all the way from Provo to take engagement pictures for Lance. And if he didn't have enough to do, he offered to get some pictures of Kent and Cade. We think he did a great job for dealing with two boys who never smile at the same time.

So having a cast during a photo shoot isn't my first choice, but we take what we can get.

Oh I forgot to mention the fact that Kent's happy demeanor didn't make it through the wardrobe change.

I know he is not my kid, but cute nonetheless.

Sweet little boy!

This was the only picture with both boys smiling, and yes we took over 100 of them together.

Normally Kent is the contemplative, serious one, but Cade was taking his turn.

Looking admirably at the wheat.

Group Date Night

A few weeks ago Ammon and I had the chance to go on a group date with Brett and Rachel and my mom and dad. Lance and Robin were out of town but dearly missed. My aunt and uncle watched the boys so we could be kid free for a few hours. We started out the evening at one of our favorite local resturants, Sangria, then headed out to mini golf by the airport. It was fun to get away for a "real" date. I consider a "real" date to be more than one activity, not just a movie OR dinner, it has to be a movie AND dinner.

Great dinner

Ammon wins at everything, so a little distraction never hurts

This course is harder than it looks

Dad spent the whole night teasing Mom, Mom spent the whole night cheating.

Brett has a thing for smelling things, whether it is the food he is eating, Kent and Cousin Cade, or pine trees on the golf course.

The whole gang

I love Ammon
