My baby is seven! :(

 Our wild night started off
at Chuck E. Cheese.
When Jason came to check out
Billings as a possibility for us to move to,
he called Ty to tell him they had a Chuck E. Cheese.
Ty was sold.  He was ready to move here that very day!
 The kids had a blast.
 We worked hard at earning those tickets.
 Summer had fun on the snowmobile.
 After we used up all of our tokens,
we traded our tickets for some cheap toys
for Ty, then headed off to the next event.
 Ty loved the Monster Truck Show in Arizona
last year, so he wanted the girls to join him
this year, too.  We were off to the
 Monster Truck Rally..
 We were ready for a show.
It is a 2 hour event, with all of 15 minutes actually 
being some action.  I said I would happily allow
it to be a father-son activity again next year,
although I did have a lot of fun.
 The stunts were exciting,
 the Monster Trucks were huge 
(and VERY loud),
but, by far, the best part
was spending every moment with
my little man.  Sadly, he's not so little
anymore.  Happy 7th birthday, Ty Bradley!

Green this, and green that!

 Ty's classroom got attacked by a silly Leprechaun
on Friday.  Well, as all kids do, he came straight
home ready to make a trap to catch one.
Luckily, Sydney was game and helped him
create this masterpiece.
 Their pile of gold and Lucky Charms did the
trick.  I'm sure you noticed the Leprechaun 
footprints.  He left prints all over and even left
a note.  He signed it Patrick Greenland.  He was
too smart for them though, and made his way
safely home. 
We were shocked to find he had even turned
our milk green!  Gross!  We added to that by
making green poppy seed muffins for breakfast
and Syd made green jello for lunch.  We're
off to Chuck E. Cheese and the Monster Truck
Rally for Ty's birthday tonight.  Might as well add
some green cupcakes to the mix. 
I'll post about the party tomorrow.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Daylight Savings?!?

For the first time since 1999, we had
to adjust our clocks for daylight savings.
Man, Arizona has a good thing going.
 Ignore it and life goes on beautifully. :)

One Fish, Two Fish, Red....

 Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!  
Last Saturday, Target had a Dr. Seuss
read-a-thon that was awesome.  Ty
was one of the only kids that sat there
and enjoyed 3 very LONG Dr. Seuss
books with his mom.  I love watching his
expressions.  His face tells the story all
by itself.  Have I mentioned how much
I love Target?  I am seriously a fan!
They got awesome gift bags with
cool Lorax mustaches in them.
 Ty also got to pick out a new
Dr. Seuss book.  They are on sale 
at Target right now if anyone is interested.
This morning, the younger kids
were lucky enough to get Green
Eggs and Ham.  Summer leaves too early 
for that.  :)  I put a picture of these on Facebook
and my Aunt Tammy said they look disgusting.
What a poor sport she is!  My kiddos loved
them....I steered clear.  HaHa
Happy Dr. Seuss Day!
