Jax face is having a hard day

 he woke up with a bug bite on his face.
I think his itching it throughout the day has made it worse.
do you see the bruise next to his eye? 
it looks bad, but I can't get a picture showing that.
he ran in front of a swing today and got a nasty bump and bruise.
But I put some essential oils on it and it looked better in minutes.
all the red around the bruise and on his cheek disappeared.

#96 read June Friend

We finished reading the June Friend yesterday.

#60 Dallas Public Library

I love libraries...the bigger the better. I get frustrated with the stand alone library in small cities without branches, because they just don't have enough books. But I live outside of Dallas. I should be able to find any book I want and never have to pay for it.
Anyways...Saturday we drove to downtown Dallas and went to the main library. Seth stayed on the 2nd floor... the children's floor with the kids and I went searching for books. 
twins colored and cut.
looks like they all had a fun time!

#10 4th of July celebration

Friends in the ward had their second annual 4th of July party. We put the kids in their swimsuits and let them play in the backyard. Sorry no pictures of Wes, he didn't come near me all night or he didn't do anything cute enough for a picture...or I was too lazy to take pics.  
Sami showing us her toys...light saber to use on the monsters...
Sami and Jax had their dinner off daddy's plate.
Jax is getting help with us otterpop.
Think Jax enjoyed his dinner!
Jax and Leslee playing with the drinks.

I didn't get pictures of the fireworks we watched from a church parking lot. I did learn that the kids enjoyed the fireworks better from a distance...it wasn't so loud!

#13 be in a parade

We walked in the Sachse city parade with our ward
Lining up for parade.

#56 sami dance class

Sami did a week long dance class through the Plano parks and rec program.
She listened to her teacher and was quick to follow directions.
We only had one meltdown. I think it was a huge success.
Signing up with a friend was nice. I had someone to talk to and Sami liked having her friend Annabeth there.

#25 paint toenails

First time I've painted the kids nails.
 first I trimmed everyone's toenails. 
then I put lotion on everyone's feet.
 then I painted. 
 Jax tackling Wes for the first time that I can recall.
 Wes not enjoying, so I pulled Jax off...which caused the reaction in the next picture
doesn't look too happy that I ruined his fun

Jax got his toes painted too. But I guess sitting around waiting for the polish to dry was too boring.
Twins enjoyed the pampering. I read stories from the Friend while the polish dried.

#44 see a clown

We went to Sachse library yesterday, to see Boocoos the clown. He was funny and I would have been totally entertained if I wasn't trying to keep Jax quiet and tell Weston upteen times that he is not getting a "nola" (granola) bar right now.

#52 cedar hill state park

We went to Cedar hill state park to learn about geocaching.
I thought it would be something my "geeky" husband would enjoy doing with us as a family.
The kids loved looking for treasure!

#17 outside movie

Drive in movie to see BRAVE
The drive in theater nearest to our home is an hour away...south of Dallas.
And a drive in movie in June, not the best idea. It was hot.
$6 for adults, kids 3 and under free...pretty good deal.

I'm trying to be like daddy

My mustache and gotte are better then yours.
I can just lick them off when I get hungry later!

#92 makes cookies

So we used to make sugar cookies all the time with Eli. When she was at my house the other day she asked if we could make sugar cookies. Since it is on our summer list and I do anything Eli asks me. We made cookies. But I cheated a bit, I didn't make the roll out kind, I made the kind that I push the dough into shapes in a pan. I don't have a summer time pan, so we had valentine, easter, halloween and christmas cookies. The frosting was really runny so these were not the prettiest cookies we've made. But they were good!

#23 celebrate fathers day

Fathers Day
We asked Seth what he wanted for dinner and he said steak. So he had to bbq our steaks. I think he was disappointed he had to cook his own food.
I am so glad my kids have such a great father! 
 seth got 3 new work shirts that he had picked out. 
the kids and I picked out 3 new ties to match.
 jax fell as he was taking daddy his shirt and tie. 
he has to do everything the twins do.
 we took pictures on the beach of each kid holding D-A-D letters and I arranged them in this frame for home
 and enlarged and framed this picture for work.
