Catch Up Before Baby Time!

The boys have been so good lately to play with each other.  Tragon and Jaron especially have been able to play without as many fights.  I think it helps that Bear is a little older and doesn't always try to wreck things now.  :)

 Tragon wants to learn all the games that Logan and Damon play.  They have been really into chess and checkers lately.  We're working on tic tac toe with Tragon.
 Logan's Birthday - this should probably have its own post, but I may not get to it.  Logan turned 7!  I can't believe how big he is getting.  Of course, he feels like he's practically a teenager.  He really wanted to go to Fiesta Fun for his birthday.  He got to go on the bumper boats with Daddy.
 And Damon got to go with Papa!  They had a good time.  Grandma helped me with the younger boys in the play area.  All Logan wanted for his birthday this year was a robe, a kickstand for his bike, and to go to Fiesta Fun.  Pretty easy to please I'd say.  Although, when we were trying to fix his bike, we ended up busting it even worse, so in the end he got a new bike too.
 Damon and Bear love to do puzzles together.  We haven't had the puzzles out in a while, so it's nice to get them out and they spend hours doing them.
 Easter - Summer Easter fun.  We always do our treats/gifts/etc on the Saturday before Easter so that on Sunday we can talk about and celebrate the true meaning of Easter.  On Saturday we got to go to Grandma's house and do an Easter Egg Hunt.  The kids had a blast.  They love eating popsicles and ice cream on the trampoline.
 The boys each got a new Easter shirt, one that dries really fast when it gets wet.  Perfect for hot St. George weather this summer when they ask me every day if they can play in the water.

 We even made a small pile for baby girl.  Damon picked out the bow for her and he is absolutely convinced she will love it.  Those boys are going to be so cute with her, I can already tell.

 Jaron loved being able to dig into his treats.  He had a cookie or treat in each hand and couldn't decide which to eat, so he just kept taking a bite out of each hand back and forth.  I'm surprised we didn't have more tummy aches this day.

It has been so fun to be able to spend time with family.  The boys love their cousins and getting together.  Hopefully, the next post will have pictures of our cute baby girl.  Until next time.....
