The iFLY experience

A few weeks ago, we had a chance to go and fly down at iFLY. My brother-in-law Kyle and my buddy Evan both work down there and are pretty awesome at iFLY. They have can do all sorts of cool tricks in the air. Carter has flown before, but this was mine and Cambree's first time. I didn't really know what to expect, but it was awesome. It was so fun watching Carter and Cambree do it. I was proud of them for being brave and doing it. I had a blast. It makes me want to go and do it more often. Thanks Kyle and Evan.

Carter's FAT CATS Birthday party

Last friday night was Carter's birthday party with all of his friends. Carter invited a bunch of his friends from school to his birthday party down at FatCats at the Solomon Center. We got the iFly room all to ourselves. All the kids got to eat as much pizza and drink as much sprite and rootbeer as they wanted, while they all bowled. They all got to bowl for an hour and a half. After bowling, everyone got a handful of tokens to go and play arcades and the different games. Then it was back up to the party room to open up presents and eat birthday cake. Carter's cake was a firefighter cupcake cake. The cupcakes were really good. A few of the boys ate two or three of them. Carter told us that this was his funnest birthday party ever. We have also had several parents call us and thank us, and tell us that their kids haven't stopped talking about Carter's party and how cool it was. Thanks to all the parents that came and helped out. Also, thank-you Kyle and Emily for helping us that night.

Happy Birthday Carter!

It was Carter's Birthday today. It seems like kids are so excited all year long, waiting for their birthday to come and then it is here and gone in a flash. Carter had a really good birthday today. He woke up and opened some presents. (A few new Nintendo DS games and Imaginext toys). I made him his favorite breakfast, Cinnamon and brown sugar pop tarts and chocolate milk. He took Reeses peanut butter cups and Blow pops to school to hand out to his class for his birthday treat. Tonight we gave him his big birthday present. He got a new green Specialized Fuse BMX bike. (Yeah, he is way too spoiled! I never had a bike that nice growing up!) He is pretty excited about it. He had to take it for a spin around the neighborhood a few times. For his birthday dinner he wanted to go to his favorite restaraunt, Bellas. We ate really good mexican food and they sang to Carter, while he wore a sombrero. He is really excited for tomorrow night. We are throwing him a party with all his friends from school down at Fat Cats in the Solomon Center.

Cambree & the Princess Ball!

Cambree has little friend named Kambrie (same name, just spelled differently), that had a birthday this week and invited Cambree to a princess ball. Cambree was so excited. For days she talked about how she was going to a "princess ball". She dressed all up in her island princess dress, shoes, tiara, and jewelry. Here are a few pictures of her.

Spanish Rice!

The other night we had our friends Bryce and Amanda over for Mexican food night. We gave Calee a bowl of spanish rice to eat. She ate almost a whole bowl. She also made a huge mess, but it was really cute.
