Two Sundays Ago & Warm River

Two Sundays ago we went for a family drive and a picnic. We got home from church and packed our stuff. Then we headed up to Warm River and ate our food, and then went for a hike. Right as we started out hike I saw a baby snake on the trail. This didn't make Dorian too happy since he's AMAZINGLY afraid of snakes. Luckily we didn't see any more...or the mama! It was a lot of fun and I always love doing things as a family. It seems that with Dorian's crazy work schedule, and mine thrown in there we don't have many days to go and do things. Hopefully there will be many more adventures to come!

The 1st 6 Presidents of the USA

Here's carson saying who the 1st 6 presidents of the United States are. He normally performs a little bit better (not that it's bad) than the video, but still here's what he knows.

He also knows the capitols of France, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada (Carson City), Oklahoma, and Florida. We can't wait till he knows even more. Maybe I'll get a video of this soon.

Our First Day Swimming

Our weather turned really warm and nice for a few days and now it's rainy which is kind of nice for this area. Anyway, we decided to buy a pool for the kids since we don't have grass to run around and play in. (and I'm not a fan of dirty and muddy kids.)
Here are some pictures of Carson and James enjoying the pool for the first time. They had so much fun, but the sun was going sown and it was breezy out. They ended up REALLY cold, but still didn't want to get out. But I insisted!

This is JD's diaper nice and full!!!!
I hadn't invested in swim diapers yet! :o)

Here's a video of them enjoying the slide. They couldn't get enough.

Carson woke up this morning throwing up. He's thrown up 5 times already, and it's only been 3 hours. Poor little guy. He was diagnosed with an ear infection last Thursday, and had been acting fine, but that all changed this morning. He's thrown up his antibiotics, the pedialyte, his oatmeal breakfast (he insisted on eating) and more pedialyte. Wish us luck today, but most of all wish Dorian luck tonight! I have to work, and this will test his fatherly skills. He says he can't handle throw up no matter who it is. I can attest to this! I have thrown up ONE time in our marriage, and he laid in bed wanting to run far, far away! :o)
Get better soon Cars!

Happy Mother's Day MOM!

I have a great Mom who is always there to listen to me. Sometimes she even helps me fix my problems. But you know how girls are, we don't always want a solution to things. It's just nice to have someone there to listen to you, and my Mom IS! Thanks Mom for always being there for me. I'm also glad you're free to talk to. It's been nice.
I LOVE YOU, and I hope you have a fantastic Mother's Day!!
Love Ya,
Melissa Sue

Dorian's new Pontoon Boat

Dorian is a huge fan of fly fishing to say the least! We were given his parents canoe last spring. It was used ONLY once for 2 reasons. One, we were so incredibly busy with building the house and two, it is so heavy and such a pain to put in the truck and stuff. Dorian decided he wanted a pontoon boat to float the river. So, what did we do? We sold the canoe. ON ONE CONDITION: He had to get something that the family could go out on the lake with this summer. So he also bought a pretty nice, heavy duty raft.
He's enjoyed his pontoon boat twice now! Already more that the canoe. Looks like it will be a nice investment.

"I need a book like Daddy!"

Apparently Carson has been paying a lot of attention to his Dad. If you didn't know by now, Dorian is an ADVID reader while taking care of his business. Carson is all too willing to be just like him. Everything Dorian does, Carson has to be a part of. Normal kid stuff, but this one was too great NOT to snap a picture of and share with all!
