Two Fun Days

On Friday we surprised the kids with a trip to Magic Mountain.  The day was nice and sunny-- a change from the dreary, cold prior days.  Dennis and Paul weren't interested in riding the big coasters, but they sure enjoyed the classics.
Sveta and Anastasia enjoyed the bumper cars.
Caleb and Dennis were bumper car partners.  

Taylar (Caleb's girlfriend) was Alex's partner.

This was Nolan's first trip to an amusement park.  Surprisingly he enjoyed most of the rides that he was tall enough to ride.

Here is John with Oliver, Andrew, and Jonny.
Grandpa and Grandma joined us at the park.
Riding Jet Scream

This was one of the few rides that Nolan did not like.

Here is Anastasia playing peek-a-boo with Daddy.

After we left Magic Mountain we all went to Denny's for dinner.  It was anice way to end the day and warm up with a mug of hot cocoa.
Today all the guys worked on the ramp.

Cousin Matt and Cousin Jenn came for a visit.  With Matt's extra hand, the half pipe was nearly completed.
After dinner, we opened presents.
Here is everyone gathered in the living room.

Matt and Jenn surprised the kids with all kinds of goodies.   They went all out!

Have you ever seen a 1/2 pound or 1 pound Sugar Daddy?
 And look at those hot lips!

Oliver was fascinated with Anastasia's big, red lips.
He imitated them.
And even posed for this picture.
But boy did he freak out when she went to kiss him with them.
I sure do love these two boys!  Aren't they the cutest!
So now I know what Caleb and Adam would look like if they grew mustaches. 

It was a wonderful day with family!  


  1. I love this whole post!

    The mustaches were great too. :)

  3. I love Nolan's little face. And Oliver looks like a doll even when he is upset. I just want to pinch his rosy cheeks and give him a big hug. You have a beautiful family :)
