Corn Maze

Clint and Adrienne gave us passes to the corn maze for Taylor's birthday and we had a blast! Literally! We had to check out the pumpkin cannon of course and Taylor was the first one ever to hit the target. It was an awesome shot! Drew just looked scary behind a cannon!!
















Who needs to hire someone to do their family portraits?!










We navigated pretty quickly through the corn maze thanks to Seth, I think he must have been an indian tracker in his former life...

























Taylor's Birthday...better late than never!

Kelsi was quite excited about her new backpack... Sorry this was so long in coming but here are pics of T's birthday. We spent Saturday afternoon at a bowling alley doing cosmic bowling, thus the not-so-great pictures. We didn't think about that before we decided to do the party in the dark, but the kids loved it and that's the point really. Taylor had a few friends from school and then his cousins came with my parents. Clint and Payton joined us at the end after her volleyball game so that worked out. On Sunday we went over to Seth's mom and dad's in Berthoud and celebrated Taylor and Kelsi's birthdays. Her's is on the 25th so we've always done theirs together, well since Kels was 6 anyway! Taylor's grandparents all pitched in and got him a new bike (shocks, .... Lucky!) So he was quite excited because I had him convinced that it probably wasn't going to happen because the bike he had picked out was a little expensive. I know, I'm so mean. You will also get to experience the Clymer family's rendition of "Happy Birthday" ENJOY!

GO ROCKIES!!









On Saturday the 20th we went down to Denver and watched a Rockies game. It was me, Seth, Taylor, Drew and my mom and dad. Those of you who don't know my family well our mantra has always been "Baseball is life..." When we walked into the stadium it was clear that our kids had the fever also. They lit right up. My parents really enjoyed sharing the kids' first MLB game with them, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. It ended up being a great game, with a little rain, some bratwursts, peanuts, icecream and a foam finger. Let's just say that won't be our last Rockies game!!

Graduation!!





So today I graduated from Cosmetology school and my feelings are bittersweet. I'm excited and ready to see what I can do with this, but on the same token it's kinda scary. I made some wonderful friends while I was there that I hope to keep in touch with, and once in awhile I'm sure I'll pop into the school to see the owners and instructors that were unbelievably patient with me this past year. Thank you to all my friends and family that were a great support to me while I pursued my dream of going to school. Mom, I couldn't have done it without you. Your prize is of course free hair do's for life. I love you, thanks! My wonderful husband was amazingly supportive and that has meant so much to me. I guess he gets free hair do's for life also. Well, I'll finish up before this starts sounding even more like I'm accepting a Grammy. If you want to come see me I'll be taking appointments starting around the first of October, call my cell to get an appointment. (I won't be posting my cell # here, sorry)
Love you all and thanks again for your support!

Water World Happy Birthday Grandma Cheryl!!




video
We all went down to Water World for Grandma Cheryl's ?th birthday. It was great fun! The kids went non stop all day. We did get held up for a little while due to some lightning and rain. During that time while people left by the hundreds we ate some pizza and waited for things to clear up. After that we had almost no lines so did most of the rides again. Awesome!! We were definitely all dragging by the time they kicked us out, but we had a great time. Thanks Grandma!

Where did the summer go?!

Well, the last month has been crazy to say the least and now the kids go back to school on Thursday. They are ready although they don't think so... I am ready to get back to my own school full time so I can finish up, too. Taylor just got his bottom braces on yesterday so he is in quite a bit of pain, poor guy. Drew has been cranky the last week or so but I think he's just ready to be back in school with an organized schedule and seeing all of his friends again.
A couple weeks ago we spent the weekend at the lake with Grandpa Jay's family doing a lot of skiing, fishing, eating, tubing, etc. all the best things in the world. Most of the family was able to make it out so that was good. We got some great shots of the kids on tubes so we'll get those posted soon.
Last week we went down to AZ for my grandma Bobbi's (mom's mom) family reunion. She was the baby of 13 so she has a huge family. They do a whole weekend of camping because that gives you a chance to see everyone you want to catch up with. The last number I heard was 275 people. WOW! This was the first time we were able to see baby Trent, Cam and Jen's baby. He was 5 weeks old and absolutely gorgeous. Cam and Jen are wonderful parents and we were thrilled to see them and the baby. Casey and Brittny were also there with our adorable nephew Gavin. We got rain in the afternoons which equals mud so Gavin had a great time playing in the mud puddle with his daddy. Clint and Age drove down with their bunch along with my parents, so they had a full car! Our kids adore their cousins so they were happy as can be camping, fishing, and cliff diving (!) with them. We got lots of great pictures from our AZ road trip also that we'll post soon. So, our next post will most likely be back to school pictures, so stay tuned!

Just a glimpse of us...

Happy Monday!

We had a pretty laid back weekend. We went to a wedding for a guy that we've known since he was a baby pretty much. His dad is the electrician that we started out working for all those years ago so we've kept in touch with the family through Tom. We knew him as Timmy Bieri, most people just call him Tim now. It was a beautiful ceremony and great reception. His older brother is our age and we were able to meet his new son Jacob who is adorable and has his dad's big brown eyes. It's fun to catch up with people and see where their lives are heading.
Yesterday we went down to Wiggins where my friend Megan has a farm. They are harvesting wheat right now so the boys were able to ride along in the combines and talk the ears off of the drivers. They had a great time though!

America's favorite past time...

The last two nights we have spent at the baseball fields. Taylor had a double header last night and Drew just had one game tonight. Taylor had two great hits last night one to right field and one right over 2nd base. They won their first game 14 to 7 and their second game 6 to 5. The second game was obviously a close game and very exciting to watch. Drew is still in coach/pitch so they bat around the batting order and then switch, not really any nail biters, but it's good to learn the basics :) Taylor has another double header tomorrow night and then that's the end of his season. Drew goes 2 more weeks then he's done. It's fun, but we're kindof over being at the fields 4 days a week!
