Ryder fixated on the TV and Mickey Mouse, then checking out all the tulips.
Molly checking out her shadow and new little seat. Jared's taking Clark and Molly for a little spin on the trike.
Blake and I and Ryder visited the John Deere expo at Jensen's Grove. Ryder had a blast splashing the pop cans in the bucket of the tractor.
May 5 - Blake and I took a little trip over to Twin Falls, we went to the temple then to see Shoshone Falls. It was amazing! So much water coming over the falls!
May 6 - I can't believe I'm posting this picture! While the guys were out at the Lavas shooting guns, they found this snake! They ended up killing it, but not before getting some pictures. Molly and Ryder loved splashing in the hot tub.
May 6 & 7 - We celebrated Randy's birthday on the 6th with hamburgers and a few presents. Since we didn't have a cake, we put a candle in a Ding Dong. Ryder loved the cake and candles on his actual birthday. (He turned the big 29!)
Ryder's trying out the slide, throwing rocks in to the lake, helping Grandpa mow Grandma Great's lawn, and finishing off Grandpa's pop.
Maden, Annie and Clark are enjoying a picnic under their big umbrella and roasting marshmallows in their fire pit. This is such a nice picture of Blake's mother, Helen with some beautiful flowers she got for Mother's Day. Molly was a big girl and threw away her binky. She and Jared are standing by the bear at Black Bear Diner, and Molly is all dressed up and ready to go the Temple Open House.
Maden got to go fishing for a field trip in school, then he was dressed up like a teacher. Annie had a great time flying the little kite we made. She loves taking pictures and took this close up of me.
May 20 - We celebrated Ryder's 2nd birthday! He had a lot of family and friends there to wish him a happy birthday!
Molly wanted to climb a tree when she saw Annie doing it. Clark, Annie and Maden trying out the cool Muana sand box Celia made. After Ryder's party, Clark and Molly were pretending to drive my car, so Maden and Annie climbed in for the ride. I was still fixing buttons and turning things off and on for days. Annie brought her skate board and tried it out on our driveway. She did really well for her first time. Clark loved sitting on it and going down the slight slope of the driveway.
Jared, Blake, Brian, Maden and Annie took the boat out for a little spin and some fishing.
May 23 - Ryder's real birthday. I put 2 candles in his yogurt at breakfast, then bought some little cupcakes for candles at lunch. He loved playing with the new cars, there is even a truck like his dads.
Jared, Nikelle and Molly went on a little camping trip, they took the trike and went for a walk. They said it was very green and beautiful. Ryder got to touch a lobster at Red Lobster. We were surprised he would touch it. Brian had a tennis match, and Celia and Maden had baseball practice, so I went to tend Clark, he wasn't thrilled that I was there and wouldn't come any closer than the hall. The tennis match was chilly, so Annie was all wrapped up in a blanket. It was fun to watch Brian play tennis again.
May 27 - We took a little trip to Yellowstone Bear World. We had to take our pictures in front of The Bear. Molly loved being free from her car seat and roaming around to everyone's laps. The bears were pretty active.
We went to the petting zoo, Ryder loved it, Molly did not! The goat loved Blake's food.
Ryder and Molly loved the little rides. They went on the train and the bumpy cars.
Before Bear World, Blake, Randy, Brian and Annie went to Blacktail Reservoir for a little fishing time. After Bear World, Randy and Blake went to help Jared do some wiring, and Molly and Ryder had fun with some bubbles.
Sunday May 28 - Brian's family came for dinner, Maden loves to play games, so Grandma Beth and I played with him. Ryder and Clark played with tractors and Annie chilled in the little chair.
Memorial Day - We went to the Ammon Cemetery, Molly and Ryder loved playing around and looking at the headstones.
Brian and Celia hosted a BBQ and combined it with a congratulatory celebration for Jared finishing school and passing his test. He is now a Journeyman Electrician! Celia made this cute cake for the occasion.
After we ate, and the babies napped, then they had a great time jumping on the tramps. They were pretty funny to watch, Clark is a good little experienced jumper, Molly and Ryder spent more time falling down, but they still giggled and loved it.
Jared, Randy, Brian, Maden and Annie took the boat back out to Blacktail. Annie got tired and took a nap on the boat. Blake took his mother and sat on the dock with her. She loved it, it was a good little outing for her.
