Water, water everywhere:)

We have been having so much fun with water this summer! We went over to Kim's earlier this week to jump on the tramp and run through sprinklers.

Here are the big boys CJ, Taysum and Quinn (Hayden was safely out of the way of the water and the jumping:)

Parade fun!

This morning we went over to Cowley for the parade, it was a lot of fun and the kids had a blast dancing and watching the floats come by. Grandma drove the Rhino for the Cetco float and stopped and picked up the kids along the way. They had fun giving everyone high fives as they drove by:)
This year Quinn went as Mario to the parade, last year her went as Sonic, too funny:)
CJ's shirt matched the "safety green" that was the theme of the float;)

Celeste stayed back with us and stayed on daddy's lap in the shade:)

Kids waiting patiently for their candy:)

Quinn and Carissa did the can-can while CJ tried to pretend I wasn't there to embarass him;)

Quinn mania

This was Quinn's first year in wrestling and he LOVED it. He went undefeated the whole season and got his method of being able to pin his opponets quickly down. He was so fun to watch:)

More from the Lindsays

The kids have been having so much fun while we have been living with Jodi, one of Jodi's many talents is quilting. She has made all of my kids several quilts. Two of her most recent quilts she made by pulling the images off the internet and quilting from those images. CJ loves Phineas and Ferb, this is one of the quilts Jodi entered in the quilt show
This is another one Jodi did from an on-line image without a pattern. The boys were so excited to see their quilts in the quilt show.
CJ was so inspired by Jodi's hard work that he decided he would like to try his hand at quilting. Jodi taught him what to do and he was able to make this quilt on his own. He didn't get it done in time to officially enter it in the quilt show, but he took it to show the ladies at the show. They loved it and asked him to dispaly his quilt during the show. He was pretty excited, he made it for one of his friends whose cat recently had kittens. It is covered in kittens, he name it "Kitties on the run."

Quinn turned "6" this year, he has slowly moved from his Sonic stage into Super Mario brothers. He helped decorate his cake this year and I think it turned out pretty cute!

He decided he wanted to have a bowling party this year, we had a lot of fun with friends and family. It was during a very busy weekend with Tyler graduating as well, so we had a lot of family that we normally don't have. He had great time!

Carissa Joy turned 4, she had yet another princess party, complete with a princess cake. Another one of Aunt Jodi's talents in decorating cakes and did a great job on this one.

She looked so pretty in her princess dress:)

Carissa loves her little baby sister and is never too far from her side. She was helping watch Celeste at Tyler's graduation party here:)

CJ has lost so many teeth! This is his most recent smile:)

Carissa still enjoys her dance classes, here she is all dressed up for her recital. She did amazing, I love how excited her brothers get when they see their sister on stage!

We had a lot of snow this past winter. One of the kids' favorite things to do was go and help their daddy shovel walks. I don't think Chad minded all of his "helpers", he ended up getting them trained really well!

Little helpers:)
