Well....my boys have been begging and begging us to let them have a kitten and we finally gave in. We had to return a tarp from scout camp last night and what do you know....they had kittens they were giving away. Now we have a cute little outdoor kitten. The boys decided they like the name that the other family had given him, so we will call him Blaze. He will be sleeping in a box in Jake's room for the first few nights until he gets used to being away from his mom and siblings:) The kids are really loving him on his first day here....lets hope the excitement lasts awhile.

Zac's new favorite word is...cuz.
The other night after dinner I was eating some potatoe chips and he asked if he could have some. I said, "no, you haven't finished your dinner." He said, "Cuz, their my favorite."
Today after I mowed the lawn, I turned the sprinklers on for the boys to play in. Zac came upstairs awhile later naked. He had taken off his wet clothes and brought me a dry shirt to put on him. I told him a minute later that he needed to go get a pair of underwear and put them on. He said, "Cuz, I don't want to."
He tells me cuz...all the time and it is never in the context it should be...it is usually when I tell him no he can't have or do something...he says....cuz, not why, cuz!
Jake and Zac spent many hours working on and playing in their fort that they built in the playroom. Ryan had to go to scout camp for a couple of days so he took Hunter with him. The other boys spent almost every waking minute working on the fort that got much more elaborate than the one in the picture:) They really wanted to sleep in it one night, but Jake changed his mind when I told him he would probably be kicked all night by the crazy sleeper Zac(I was speaking from experience).

Friday morning we headed to the mountains for our first camping trip of the season. We had SO much fun! The weather was beautiful and the boys did NOT want to come home on Sunday. Zac has been asking me all morning if we can go back to camp. This was Ryder's 1st camping trip and at 4 weeks he was VERY good!! It is very nice to have a nice trailer to camp in:) , especially with the baby:) The boys especially loved the fire. Zac liked roasting the marshmellows, but didn't want to get too close to the fire:)

Today was Jake's first day going to scouts. They had a bike rodeo today. He had a blast!! I had a hard time getting Hunter to leave, he wanted to stay too. Jake has been so excited. We bought his patches and stuff yesterday and last night he kept reminding me to get them sewn on before scouts this morning.
