Soccer, Visit from Saba, and other stuff

The boys started soccer last week and seem to enjoy it.  Zak is already complaining that he wants to play "real soccer" which means he wants to play games and not just practice drills.  There are about 40 kids in the clinic age group so it is pretty crazy at practice, but for games they are divided up into 4 different color teams.  Next Saturday will be their first game.

Last weekend Ben's father came to visit from NH.  He was only here for the weekend, but we fit a lot of fun stuff in during that time.  One night we went to an Aberdeen Ironbirds game, but it started to rain during the 3rd inning.  We waited a little while, but ended up leaving.

On Sunday we went to his hotel for a birthday party.  At the hotel we also hung out with both of Ben's sisters.  After having lunch we went for a swim then had the boys open some gifts.

Now I have a bunch of random pictures I wanted to share with those of you who read the blog, but don't see pictures on Facebook.

This morning we had picture day for soccer and then the kids did a few drills before heading home.  Wanda had her camera and took a few pictures.

I didn't know she has me in the picture too
She had just told the boys to look at her

I named him Bubbles because that is a nickname
I have been using for Tyler recently with all of his drool and bubble blowing

Birthday Party

The boys had their birthday party at an indoor bouncy place.  This year was the first time we had a party for their friends and not just family and adult friends.  The boys were very excited to get to pick where their party was and who to invite.  Unfortunately, none of their cousins could make it to the party, but they did have a great time with their friends.  They got to bounce for a little over an hour and then we were in the party room for about 40 minutes.  After the party we went to Chick-Fil-A for dinner with Dave & Kyle then went home to open gifts.

5 Years Old!

I can't believe Zak & Ryder are now 5 years old!  They have been pretending for months that they were 5 years old which I think is funny.  Of course, they have now started asking "So will I be 6 my next birthday?". We went to IHOP for breakfast and the boys got to open some gifts.  First they opened cards and gifts from Grammy then they moved on to the gifts from Ben & I.  They will have their 5 year check-up with the pediatrician later this month so I will update with info after that.

Their party is going to be on Tuesday at a local indoor bouncy place which they are very excited for.  It is the first party they have invited friends to instead of just family and adult friends.
