Kenzie's Field Day

Kiddie Academy held field day for the pre-k and kindergarten rooms.  The kids got to play tug-a-war, sack races, and lots of other fun stuff.  Luckily the events were this morning and it was clear skies (rain came in later.) 

Kenzie had a great time with her friends!

Baseball Practice in the clovers

Landon had baseball practice at Walter Hall Park. The field was covered in clovers. Beautiful, and great for Kenzie and her friend to play, but not so easy for baseball. The lights never came on so it was a short practice.

9th Birthday Party at Itz

Sunday, after church, we picked up a few of Landon's friends and went to Itz Pizza in Pasadena.
Pizza, cake and games. Landon, Kenzie and the boys had a great time. Even Bryan and Danny had a great time. We spent four hours there. Landon had a great birthday.

Soccer season begins

Landon and Kenzie both had games today, within 30 minutes of each other.  Luckily they played at the same fields this season so Bryan and I both got to watch the games.

A lot of Landon's old teammates moved up a division but we still have a good team.  They won 6-0 today.  Landon had a ball that he kicked right over the goalies head to score.

Kenzie is on the same team as last season. We love her coach. They changed the fields this year so they are much shorter and the kids only play 5 on 5. Great idea.  But that also means we scored over 13 goals. The other team had 3 and 2 they scored for us.

Both kids had a great time.

Spring Soccer

We had a late cold front come through this week. Wasn't sure Kenzie and I would go to soccer but it ended up being a nice morning.
Here's a photo of Kenzie putting on her makeup before soccer.
And another photo of Bryan giving Landon some soccer advice.

Family Sunday

We actually got up early enough to stop at McDonalds for breakfast before church. Kenzie is always excited to put on beautiful dresses, but it's a fight every Sunday to get Landon in "dress clothes" which means khaki shorts. You'd think they burned his skin.
The promise of park after lunch got everyone up and ready.
After church, we stopped by the house, changed and headed back out. McAlister's for lunch, where we got to visit with friends. Then on to Challenger park.
We first went on nature walks. Spotted a huge spider which I'm convinced was a tarantula. (Picture on Bryan's phone.) After going down a couple trails we headed back to the playgrounds. Kenzie loves to swing. Loves it. Landon of course still loves monkey bars. He's always been a climber. It was a fun afternoon.

Reading / Yogurt

Kenzie LOVES this book.  It doesn't even really rhyme very well.  But she loves it.  She usually has Bryan read it to her, several times.  Here she decided to read it herself.
(And what a cute outfit from GJ and Grandpa!)

Landon's favorite place is Yogurt Bear - he LLLLLLOOOOOVVVVVEEEEESSSSS it.  Kenzie enjoys it too.  But Landon always want the table with checkers.

No More Pacifier

 Kenzie got a boo-boo at school. Her and a friend were fighting over a pot and the other kid let go - smacked Kenzie right in the lip.  Ouch!  However - she will no longer use her pacifier because it hurts.  So we may be off the paci for good!

West Texas Football and Parade

We went out to West Texas for the weekend and were able to see my nephew's pep ralley - The kids loved the band and cheerleaders!

Headed to Rosa's for pre-game dinner!  Yummo.

Unfortunately, it rained through the whole game!  Jill and I sat together and took turns holding an umbrella over us.  Trying to keep it from dripping down our backs.

On Saturday, we made it to Portales in time for the Parade!  The rain stopped long enough for the Parade, the kids eagerly waited for the candy to come.

After the parade, we skipped Eastern's game and headed over to visit my Granny Foster. (Jill and Kenzie snuggling)

Kenzie wearing the wig!  Hilarious.

Kenzie and the pup's at Jill's house.

It was a fast trip, but always fun to be back with family.

Fall Soccer - Hot Shots

Landon is playing fall soccer on a 5 and 6 year old team.  His team is pretty good this year.  Our first game was at noon today.  Luckily it was a little cloudy, and we had umbrellas.  Landon is super fast.  I'm amazed that he keeps going and going.  (Doesn't get that from me...that's for sure.)  They won 1-0, with Landon scoring the only goal. He had another goal, that the goalie caught inside the goal, but the ref didn't call it.  Oh well. =-)

Kenzie played well, she would yell for the team after Bryan and I would yell.  And she thought it was really funny that a girl on Landon's team was name "MacKenzie" too.  After the game, Landon told us he would remember this game for the rest of his life.

Wildlife at work

We're lucky to have a pretty cool place to work.  On site here, we have two big ponds, that have fish, turtles and lots of ducks.  I think they've announced a couple times not to feed the animals, but every one does...(is that a valid excuse?)  Anyway - on Friday, Bryan brought the kids up here, along with a loaf of bread and we fed the ducks and turtles.  Of course, Kenzie ate most of her bread instead of throwing it.

Here Landon is doing some kind of ninja move on the duck with her babies...while Kenzie is trying her hardest to catch up.  On the next picture, you see Landon trying to keep Kenzie back so she wouldn't "upset" the mama.
