VBS Week and Decker trip

 Cameron and Ashton had a great week at VBS with friends, learning great new songs and studying verses from the Bible!  VBS attendance was at 1,600!  The kids packed food boxes and raised over $11,000 for families in Haiti affected by the earthquake.  It was an amazing week!  It was a country theme so Ashton dressed up one day (note the vest made by Grandma Bonnie a LONG time ago!)
On Wednesday, Cameron and I drove down to Ontario to visit Suzanne, Danielle and her friend, Lauren who were visiting from AZ!  We went to dinner and walked around the mall where we found a great music store.  Suzanne showed us what she'd been working on at her guitar retreat and Cameron showed me the drum set of his dreams.  :)  He did get something out of the trip - Dalton's hat and three boxes of clothes/shoes from Dalton!  Thanks, man!

Mall Outing

 We went over to the mall for ice cream and got a chance to let the younger ones play!

Rockin' and Bouncin'

Ethan, his friend, Austin and Cameron have started a band called, "Full Range Locals" and have been recording some music over the last few months.  This week when they met for practice, they took a photo.  Some of their band's music has been posted on Ethan's facebook page.

 We attended a friends birthday party at a trampoline place and I got some photos of all three boys playing around.

Father's Day

 We had such a fun day celebrating Derrik today!  He was treated to breakfast and cards in bed and then helped with a much needed project, carpet cleaning!  :)  Then, we went out for lunch and then off to the bowling alley.  We made sure he got a nap and then we grilled a yummy dinner and watched some basketball over strawberry shortcake.  He was sure fun to celebrate!

Visit to Apple Valley

We went to Apple Valley and visited the grandparents.  Had a lovely visit and enjoyed the public pool and a new sprinkler!

Awards and New Chapters

We're finishing the year on a high note.....Cameron earned 2 awards (perfect attendance and service as valet helper) and Ashton earned the Effort award!  So proud of these boys!

Ethan finished his last day of school the end of May.  We are now parents of a high schooler.  So amazing how fast it all goes!

Cameron and Ashton finished up their year yesterday.  We went out this morning to celebrate!  We are so ready for summer!
