The Famous Wibbly-Wobbily Tooth

Ashton's other baby front tooth fell out last week. This was the one that's been loose since last fall.  He wasn't in any rush to let it go.  In fact, he even told us that his tooth told him that it wasn't coming out and just wanted to stay put.  lol  He's growing up!

Huntington Beach with the Plummers

Get ready, set, GO!
Slowly making their way in.

I've known Susan since 4th grade
Susan's son, Reid with Cameron.  Instead of finding a sand dollar, they found a real one!



My longtime schoolmate and her family were in California for their sons robotic competition and we had the opportunity to drive down and hit the beach with them for the day!  So fun to be at the beach AND hang out with old friends.  It was overcast and chilly but that didn't stop the boys from venturing into the cold, frigid waters!  Then we spend the rest of our time trying to get them warm again!  It was a great day.

School Carnival Fun!

Music basket
Set of drums for classroom

Our school had their annual carnival on Saturday.  The music department entered a basket of goodies for the silent auction and I worked at a bake sale specifically for music.  We've been enjoying a set of drums loaned to us!  We hope to buy our own in the fall!  Ashton enjoyed the wii station and the inflated slides, Cameron worked at the student council booth and helped me.  Derrik was there, being my support!  It was a hot but very fun day!

Recycled Hat Day


Cameron and Ashton sported recycled hats they made for school.  I don't know, maybe it will be a new trend?

Start Your Engines

Cameron, Ashton and I headed to the park on Sunday to try out Cam's new remote control car.  Ashton already had one so the two of them had fun racing and showing off!

Easter Day!

We had a wonderful day celebrating the Resurrection and enjoying the beautiful weather!  Cameron and Ashton did their baskets and participated in the hunt alone this year (E was still in bed!).  Cameron got a Lakers t-shirt, Ashton got a new Franklin dvd and Ethan got a Chinese yo-yo thingy.  :)

Like father, like son......have some chocolate with your breakfast!

 
It lives!  :)
Yo-yo
Family Easter lunch

Egg Decorating

 Cameron and Ashton had fun decorating eggs last weekend.  They turned out pretty!  Another thing I'm learning about these guys, if the project takes too long then they may not stick around to see the final product.  :)  I did get pictures before they left so I'm happy!

Jam Session




Derrik and Ethan jammed together on the kitchen floor last night.  Ethan had figured out the bass line to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and then Derrik figured out the chords to join in on guitar.  I love it when they do that!  I grabbed a quick video.

Ashton's Open House

We visited the school to be a part of Ashton's open house.  He is rockin' and rollin' through first grade!  So proud of him!

With Mrs. Richter, a great fit

Ethan's 13th birthday!

Birthday boy

 Ethan had a great birthday and is super-excited to finally be 13!  We took him and 4 of his friends to Mountasia to play lazer tag and video games.  He was sung to in the restaurant (very embarrassed) and had a big ice cream sundae.  Thanks everyone for the cards and gifts!  You made his day special!
Cameron and lots of tickets


It's MINE!  All MINE!
