Well, I guess Im kinda slacking in the blog world!! I forget I even have one! I havent blogged since last year!

Lots of stuff has happened since then~ Dont think I will try and catch up maybe just go one from here!

Last weekend was our "102nd Strawberry Festival", Its always a big deal! The whole family goes together to the parade on Saturday. It was a great day for a parade our first warm day of the year so far it was like 87 degrees. Way too hot actually!

It was my sisters bday so we went to there house had a BBQ and strawberry shortcake! It was yummy! I made all the kids snow cones with Aidyns snow cone machine he got for his bday! They loved that!!

Then we all went to the carnival. Aidyn had a blast he rode all the kids rides several times and went on some big rides also. He went on the sizzler and I took him on the Merry Go Round! I forgot how high off the ground it was kinda freaked me out, but he was mesmerized that he could see the whole town from the top! It was a great weekend!

Sunday, Jon and I went to a motorcycle ride and to a movie! We went into the wrong theater. We thought it was a little strange that the movie had started, but just kinda shrugged it off. Then within about 35-40 min it was over and we were just looking at each other like...What did we miss. Needless to say they gave a free movie passes since we missed over half of the movie!! We had a nice ride though!

Well, I will try and post some pics and write more on here!!!

Long time no write!

Jeez, I didnt realize I hadn't blogged since February!! Man where do I even start?
Aidyn is in his second year of preschool. He has grown so much it amazes me everyday! He makes me so happy!
He is spelling his name and recognizing letters and can spell a couple of words. He is interested in anything and everything.
We just finished our first soccer season! Jon coached and he loved it! He did a great job!
Aidyn was reluctant at the first of the season but by the end he didnt want to stop playing he wanted to be in the whole game!! Its so much fun watching him!
We had a very busy summer, as always! We did take a weekend trip to California and went to the Redwoods and hit everything we could on the way! We had the best time! Aidyn loved the trip he loved staying at the hotels he thought that was so fun! Jon or I hadnt been to the Redwoods so that was amazing and you wouldnt think a 4 yr old would be interested but he loved it too. We went to the prehistoric Gardens with all the neat dino's Aidyn loved that he had the map and was out little tour guide!!
We did a little camping! We took Aidyn to the races which he loves and wanted to go every weekend! We were gone way too much didnt get much done at the house which I regret!!
Next spring we start on that!!
Its almost Halloween, AJ is going to be a Tranformer "Optimus Prime".
We are have a Halloween party this weekend cant wait its going to be so fun!!
Well I guess thats a little catch up. I will add photos on another day!!

Our new puppy "Piston"

This is our newest edition!! He is a Corgi, he is now 3 months old. I have always wanted one and found a breeder through my work. A wonderful family who we are so glad we met. We originally had the brother of this one picked out, but he suddenly got sick about 3 weeks before we were bringing him home and ended up having a heart defect and they had to put him to sleep. We were devasted!! We had already went and spent alot of time with him so we had bonded. Well, anyway there was one puppy left out of 6. We kind felt it was a sign so, we went and visited him and he was so sweet and we decided it was the right thing to take him. So Aidyn named him "Piston Cup" after the "Cars" movie!!
He is so much fun and Magnum our Lab and him just love each other. Aidyn loves him too and says that its his brother. It is the cutest thing. Piston is a wonderful edition to our family!!

Aidyns first day of preschool!!

Well, course these are backwards. I have the worst time with this blogging. This is a pic of him in his new class in the little bathroom. I couldnt help myself he looked so cute!

This one is of him when we were getting ready to leave I love him cute little face. He is so handsome.
He thought he needed to ride his bike before attending school!!

He is standing infront of the door at school. Not looking very excited now!! He was a little scared!!
