It's Finally Here!

I cheered through basketball, soccer, T-ball and Rookie baseball....all waiting for this.....football season is finally here!! Jacob is in tackle this year, he has 2/12 hour practices every night in August, when games start he drops down to three practices a week. Carter finally gets to play flag, he has three practices a week for an hour and a half until games start and then he drops down to two practices. Brett is the head coach this year for Carter's flag team, the Poway Chargers. After countless hours of Pop Warner coach interviews, meetings and trainings he is happy to finally get on with the season. So this will be our lives for the next three and a half months, bring it on!! We love football!!

Natalie loves sitting through football practice, this girl will learn to know and love this game! Thank goodness for that thumb!

Sammy wants his own cleats and mouthgaurd, poor kid just wants to play football. Luckily he has Abby to help him enjoy practices, they can just play with their pretend baby and make pretend cookies!

Kiddie Kandids

The last picture shows how most of the Kiddie Kandids photo shoot went for Natalie. She was not a happy girl, we didn't get any pictures of her smiling, but I did get a nice shot of all four kids with Natalie in her blessing dress. I guess I accomplished my purpose. I have a total love/hate relationship with Kiddie Kandids. They are not the best photographers, but I can walk in and leave less than an hour later with pictures in hand for under $100. It is what it is.

The Paulsons

We love getting to go up to the Paulson's house! This was a great trip, as always, we love spending time with our Paulson cousins.

The kids had a great time at the beach, they found tons of crabs and called this area "Crab Kingdom". They caught several crabs and loved playing with them.

Snow cones on the beach made the day complete!

They have this great park with a man made river for the kids to play in. They had so much fun no one wanted to leave!

It's always hard when it's time to go home. Jacob gets teary each time we leave our cousins. Luckily our Paulson cousins live close enough to see often, we can't wait for next time! Thanks for the fun!
