He found one.

A new scooter, from Grammy & Aunt Jan. Here Wes is trying to ride it like the boy on the box it came in.

Last summer pictures

I just found these pictures from last summer. We had meant to post them last June, so I dusted them off and here they are.

locked out & breaking in

Last week something potentially bad happened. We were leaving to go to the library to get some new books. Well, for some reason I walked out of the house without my keys. Amy did not take her keys because we were just going to the library (and she thought we might just leave the house unlocked). At step 20, I looked up and asked Amy "Do you have your keys?" "No"

That's when I knew it was bad. I had locked us out of our own house. We didn't have keys for the car or the house. So, I walked around to the back to check and see if we left a door unlocked. No, we're too safe for that :)

So, I set to try to break into my own home. After trying and trying to break in, I did it. It was a great feeling (?) to be able to break into my own home. At the same time, Amy was in the back trying to break in. Neither of us knew that the other was breaking in.

Right when I got in, Amy was getting in. So we both managed to break into our house at the same time :)

The next morning, Nathan was talking to Wes at breakfast telling him about how "daddy" was "awesome & strong" and was able to get in the house without a key. For Amy it was pretty amazing to listen to the boys talk about Mike in such a way. It also made me (Amy) think of how often I talk about our Heavenly Father that way...something to think about.

birthday party requirements

Amy asked Nathan today who he wanted to invite to his party. We had a few names we thought he would say. But he surprised us. His answer: people who can bring stuff I want. So his first priority was getting a good present. :)
