Good family time at the park

Yesterday after work we had a little picnic at the park. Cindys brother (Brian) and sister-in-law (Kathy) came over from Johnson City. We had a couple nephews from Oklahoma City stop in on their way through to the Hill Camorah Pageant in New York. Cindys parents are also here. Needless to say we had a great time.

Cade loved the ducks, chips, and water.

It was great to see Zach, Clark, Brian, & Kathy

Everybody meet Sadie

Kaitlyn & Cade got to help give Sadie her first bath

They really did a good job and even with water dripping in her eyes Sadie was calm and mellow. I sure hope her next few years are as easy going as her first day :)

Thanks Doctor Schroeder! You did a great job.

pics later. More good stories

Cades story: So at 21 months Cade is turning into quite the little chatter box. This morning he was eating cereal and like always, had way more on his spoon than could possibly fit into his mouth. So for about five bites in a row he'd get the spoon in his mouth and drop ~1/2 of the spoons contents onto his lap. After a few bites he looked up at me and said, "oops, sorry dadu." Then he looked down at his chair and said, "sorry cereal." He then picked up every little piece off his chair and ate them :)

Kaitlyns story: Yesterday while Cade was taking a nap Cindy, Kaitlyn, & I laid down to watch a show. About an hour into it Kaitlyns attention span took over and she went to play her little keyboard. "Kaitlyn" I said just loud enough for her to hear, and she turned the keyboard way down so I could barely hear it. A minute later I heard a little crash. I got up and saw her lying on the ground. She had sat on a little plastic container we use for files and it had broke. She had a pretty big scratch on her leg. She came over and said, "I'm really sorry I broke your thing." Then she began to cry and apologized about ten more times. Repentance in its sincerest form :)

If we're really supposed to learn from our little ones then Heavenly Father has sent me two of his best teachers. I love you Kaitlyn & Cade.

Kids are the best

So just a couple quick little stories:
Sunday Kaitlyn gave her first talk in primary. I went in and sat by her so that I could help her. I asked her if she wanted to go sit by the other kids who were going to give talks and she hopped up and skipped over to her chair. Then during the opening song I looked over and she had huge tears rolling down her face. The primary councelor looked at me as if to say "is she too scared to give her talk"? I motioned for her to come sit by me so she came and sat on my lap. I asked her what was the matter and she said, "I'm really going to miss you when you leave my primary class daddy". :) WHAT A LITTLE SWEETHEART.

Friday was our father and sons campout. I took Cade and we had a great time. ~9:30 p.m. I took him to the tent to lay him down. He threw a huge fit and after a half hour of failing to get him to lay down I let him come back by the fire with me. ~10:30 I decided to take him and put him in his car seat. At 11:00 I went to get him and lay him down (assuming he was surely asleep by now). When I opened the door he immediately said, "hi dadu". So I again let him get up. ~midnight I put him in his car seat again. Around 1 a.m. I went to get him and attempt to lay him down again. He was asleep but as soon as I laid him in the tent he whoke up and started screaming. After a couple minutes of waking everyone else up a friend handed me a flashlight. I held it shining toward the ceiling and within 10 seconds Cade was out. DANG KIDS!

Life is fun!!!
