4th of July Haslet Style

We went to The Reuman's house for a July 3rd cookout and fireworks. Their neighborhood literally shoots them off right behind their house-it was awesome! The only thing missing was some Lee Greenwood in the background! ;) There was a bike parade in the afternoon, which the kids loved even though we got there a tad bit late and couldn't find the actual parade. That's ok, because we found several other lost paraders on the way, and we made our own! The kids were super excited about their bikes (which by the way the parents pretty much decorated on our own-ha ha.

Later we went back to Tab's house and enjoyed an awesome cookout with their family and neighbors-it was really fun! Oh and by the way, Tabitha made this UH-MAZING Strawberry Jello Cake that was to die for! I can't wait for the recipe! ;) There were fireworks for the kids in the driveway-super fun! And then we got to see the main fireworks without dealing with a bunch of people and traffic! ;)

Enjoy the pics, and PS I am super proud to be an American!

And I just love this pic of all the kiddos intent in watching the fireworks!

On The Dirt Again....

It's been a few months since we took the boys out to ride their dirt bikes, but we finally got back at it. The boys did great! It was as if no time had past since they last rode, almost like they got better. How is that possible? I don't know either, but what I do know is that my little boys are growing up way too fast! I am wondering when the racing will begin...since that is Jason's dream for them...and yes, you can pray for me!

Enjoy the collages, I figured this way I could get more pictures in one post without being as long as ten posts!

It's Official....

Summer is here! It has definitely been a Texas summer...HOT! We have spent alot of time at the pool and at NRH2O, having a blast! I am trying to get as brown as posible without burning (too much), and I think the boys are trying to turn into fish! They may grow gills way before I turn brown! LOL But anyway, we are having a lot of mother son water fun trying to stay somewhat cool. Here are some pics of the beginning of the summer.

Pine Cove in Keller?????

Yep-Pine Cove was in Keller this summer! They started a new program called Base Camps. This is where they go all over Texas and partner with local churches to bring Pine Cove to your area. It is basically like a day camp, but Pine Cove style! And yes, we LOVE Pine Cove!

Dalton had a blast, and his week they focused on the armor of God in Ephesians. I was so proud when he would come home each night and share about what each piece of armor meant, and how he could apply that to his daily life. Brings tears to my eyes now! We are so grateful to Mimi for providing for Dalton to experience a week at Base Camp!

These are the pictures I got at the closing ceremony, but there are more pics they provided, but I am experiencing difficulties with that CD! So hopefully, more pics to come! Dalton's counselor's name was One Wheel Wonder, I love their camp names! Every morning when we drove in, it was like one big pep rally as we pulled into the parking should have seen the kids faces when all those college kids were whooping it up for them!

We Have A Horse!

Ok, so maybe that is a slight exaggeration! We are the proud new owners of a puppy! :( He is a chocolate lab that one of Jason's customers could not handle-so Jason decided that we could! His name is Hershey (Carson's choice-the boys ro-sham-boed between Dirt and Hershey-I am kinda glad that Carson won!)

For those of you that don't know, Levi was already a thorn in my side, and now there are TWO!!!! The puppy stage of a puppy the size of a pony is really not very fun. The pee and poop accidents are HUGE, his teeth are super big and sharp, his legs and feet are gianormous. Oh well, I guess it is just one more thing I have to get used too. And he is only 4 months old! :( The upside is that now each boy has his own dog.

Enjoy the pics of our newest family member, I include a pic of Carson and Levi-(poor dog, Carson does this kind of thing often). The first pics are of the day we got him...when I was told he was 9 weeks old...actually he was 12 weeks old...big difference! It may look like I am smiling and liking him, but actually I was laughing at the fact that I could hardly hold him!
