our night with kenny

Kenny was in town last night... so of course we went to hang out with him for a couple of hours.I think this was the 6th time we've seen Kenny in concert, and we never get tired of it. I'd have to say, though that this concert was the best one yet. (It could have something to do with the killer tickets we had...) See you next time Kenny.

belated birthdays

Since I was sort of "out of town" for the boys birthdays, we finally got around to planning a birthday party for them. We didn't PLAN on it raining all day and night, but all 13 boys still had fun at the Redhawks game!

Cooper with his favorite neighbors... Riley and Griffin.The entertainment for the night was comedian Myron Noodleman!

When you are 10, it is very embarrasing for your mom to make you stand still in front of all your friends for a picture.
***On a little side note... Tim and I woke up this morning to cupcake wrappers and sprinkles in our bed, and just about everywhere else thanks to the dog. After having gotten into the birthday garbage during the night, she was not feeling so good this morning.

Carter's Soccer Tournament

Carter is playing traveling soccer this summer and had his first tournament last weekend in Grand Forks. They won all four games for the championship... Carter played really great.Here are his brother and sister paying very close attention to their brother's game...We had to bring Emme with... she was such a good girl but got alittle hot with all her long hair!

Tim wore his hat backwards for the whole day on Saturday and got this really great tan line across the middle of his forehead.

summer so far...

Tim's "Team Moorhead" won the fruit bowl... again. Nice knickers boys. Katelyn's last day of middle school. I sound like such a "mother", but can you believe we pay EXTRA for all the holes in those jeans?

Kennedy FINALLY got to visit the new Fargo Library and got her very own library card.

If you haven't been there yet, we highly recommend you make the trip... it is such a cool place!
Katelyn and her friend spent the whole day decorating our driveway with chalk drawings... only to have it washed away by rain that night. :(
Kennedy attended bible school at our church last week (with 330 other kids!) and had a little program on Friday. Katelyn helped teach bible school and also started a Trollwood program last week. She will be performing in the play Honk Jr. on June 24th and 25th at Moorhead High School.Kennedy and Kenzie caught some rays while Coop took a break from rollerblading.And yesterday it was finally HOT enough to spend the day at the pool!

And also.... I don't have a photo of her yet (Kennedy told me she would take one for me!), but the kids are loving their summer nanny Lauren. She has been busy driving them around to all of their activities, to the mall, to the park, to the DQ..... and even told Kennedy she would take her to get her nails done this week. Yes.... this summer will be so much better than summer was!
