High School

This is the kind of pictures I get from other parents of my son!!!  At least he's got a sense of humor and is having fun huh?

We went to freshmen orientation today and although we stood in 3 different lines for over an hour we still had fun with it.  I was able to open his locker on the first try, yep - I've still got it :)

He almost died when I asked him to take this picture with me.  We actually had to wait until the hall cleared!  I can't believe he starts high school next week.  Boo hoo!

To the dentist!

Pax went to the dentist for the first time!  The office was fantastic with him, he was able to hold a stuffed animal and sit with Aidan!

Big brothers are the best!

We spent the day at Elitch Garden's in Denver.  It's been a long time since I was there and it was Paxton's first time ever.  We had a lot of fun!  Our very first ride was the carousel.
Then there were the motorcycles.  Pax loved these!

Here's a picture of the big guys.  We didn't see them much until they needed money.

The water was cold as usual but Pax loved it!  He didn't get out until his entire body was shivering.

Choo-Choo!  Yes, I was Pax's riding partner.

My favorite picture of them all.  He was really driving this boat!

Our 4th

I hope that you all had a wonderful 4th of July like we did!  We traveled up to Denver for a Rapid's game.  It was one of the few venues in Colorado that was still able to have their fireworks show.  Our drought and the fire danger stopped most of the normal events here.  But the boys and I won't argue with a reason to watch soccer!  It was Paxton's first professional game and he did it in style.  He had not one serving of Dippin Dots but two!

Pregame - very patriotic.

After the game (which we won 2-0) everyone is able to go down on the field for the fireworks show.  Both boys brought a friend, what a good looking group huh?

It was sold out, here's a look at how many people were there.

Paxton enjoyed the fireworks even though it was a really late night for us!  I loved having my entire family back together (Aidan had just returned from Oregon the night before) and spending the day with them.  They are my world!
