Coleman's little buddies in the ward started playing soccer on Saturday mornings. Here they are at the first day. I think they look pretty good all things considered. :)
brookie was more interested in pushing her stroller around the park, but she joined in for a minute here (brought the stroller along just 'cause)
we're really proud of our little buddy! he did a great job and even kicked the ball between the cones (mommy thought that was impossible for a pre-schooler, but hey - i'm happy to be wrong)
On the 4th of July we had an action packed day! We first headed over to our ward breakfast that took place in the church parking lot this year. I was a little skeptical, but the kids had a great time running around on the grass and riding their bikes (and pushing our beloved stroller) in the parking lot! At home we played a lot, bought some sparklers, tested out the sparklers, filled and exploded tons of water balloons, then went to a really cool BBQ party that night! Fun fun day!
the right half of all the eagle scouts and their sons - a pretty cool thing to see!
racing around in the parking lot - we need to invite jackson and logan over to ride bikes. cole seemed to loose his fear of fast when he was around them!! :)
loading water balloons into the wagon. this was the first time trying this out. we had a blast!!
brookie helped me husk 18 ears of corn for the bbq that night. a few of them ended up with bites snitched out of them.... sorry friends...
the pre bbq show... :) a big hit!!!
after the water we all dried off and went inside to enjoy a delicious dinner!!! after dinner the kids played and watched a movie while the adults played scategories - - - we actually had time to play a game... it was really fun!
12 kids + their parents + 12 boxes of sparklers all on a 12x6 ft deck overlooking dry bushes = CHAOS, but great entertainment. no major burns (thankfully!) cole was not too interested, but brookie was in heaven watching the sparklers then the professional (and illegal) fireworks.
