Birthday fun

We went to the zoo with some friends today for Carson’s 5th birthday.  We had his birthday party Saturday and today he wanted to go to the zoo.  We invited my friend Kristen and her three boys, Carter, Camden and Cooper.  I know, that is a lot of little boys with C names.  

I don’t think they even really paid attention to the animals today.  They just enjoyed running around playing together.  They played in the water and of course Camron was trying to take his clothes off the entire time :). 
We were suppose to go out to eat tonight but since the little ones did not really nap we thought it would be better to bring some food home.  Well, B went to pick it up in the “hot rod” and of course he would get rear ended.  My mom had to go get the food from him and we ate without Daddy.  I was already putting the boys to bed when he finally made it home.  


Did I mention that I am tired 😦  Calen has had some major sleep regression and I’m worn out.  I know he is teething and I’m really hoping that he is back to his good sleeping soon.  B was gone last night so I had all 3 boys in bed with me and I think I had about 2 hours of sleep.  I really do not want to rush my children growing up but I dream about the nights that I have my bed back and can sleep all night.

My mom is gone to Florida so we went and spent some time over with my Dad.  I remember growing up that my parent’s argued a lot.  It’s funny because now that they are older and home together all day they hate to be apart.  I know my Dad misses her when she is gone so we tried to keep him company for a while.

The baby chicks will be 3 weeks old tomorrow.  Lucy is such a great mom.  She let’s them jump all over her and she stays right with them protecting them.  I love to watch her teach them new things like how to scratch and look for food and how to walk up the ramp to the chicken coop.  The other girls kind of ignore them so that’s good because I was worried about how they would act.

I started a spiritual journal this week.  There are a lot of thoughts that I don’t feel comfortable putting on the internet so I needed a place to write them.  I also wanted to keep up with some of my favorite scriptures so I’m adding those as well.
