This weekend we traveled west to our old college town for Shane's cousin Josh's wedding. Shane was a groomsmen in the wedding. We had such a great time!!
Here are the bride and groom......her dress was so pretty!!!

No picture of the wedding, which was at 2:30(Dylan's nap time). Bless his heart he tried to sit and be good but he was just too tired!! But, I got a lot of pictures from the dance. Here he is dancing with cousin Kadie!

Kadie with her Dad, Randy and the boys(Dylan and Zac) in the background!

Dylan just cracked us up at the dance. He LOVED it!! Just danced and danced. Just about made me cry watching him dance out there. Not a care in the world having the best time!!! He had lots of "moves" we had never seen before!! He gets his dancing ablitiy from his Dad for sure!!

The other highlight of our trip was getting to see Uncle Shuan!! Here he is with his cute little girlfriend Rachel.

What a great time with friends and family!!! Mommy had a little bit to much fun last night and isn't feeling the best today!!!:-)

Play date!!!

Today we had a play date with my good friend Steph and her just about 2 year old daughter Janea.
We meet at the zoo. This was Janea's first time going!! As you can see, she wasn't so sure about it at first. Bless her heart she tried to throw the duck some bread from all the way back there!!!

My favorite picture of the day.......wanting to get closer to the peacock but a little nervous about it.

Here Steph and the kids are feeding the birds..or at least Cousin Zac and Janea are...Dylan wouuld rather eat that bread than throw it!!

We actually got all 3 of the kids lined up for a quick picture. Aren't the cute???

After the animals we headed to the park to play and eat lunch. Dylan loves the sand diggers!!! He could spend all day on them!!!

What a great time we had!! Thanks Steph and Janea for meeting us!! We have another "date" set up for next month!!

Another Vistor!!!

We had another vistor at our house today!!! Cousin Zac(Shane's cousins son) who is a couple months younger than Dylan. He came today and is also coming on Thursday!!
Here they are taking a break from playing.

I have a feeling in about 15 years, they won't be drinking milk together!! Ha Ha!!

We went into town and played at the park. But, they found some stick that they thought were more fun than the slides!!!

I had a awful time trying to get them to stop and smile for the camera, so I finally gave up!!!

Cousin Amillia needed a babysitter on Friday so she came over to our house to play. She sure is growing!!!
Dylan enjoyed pushing her in the walker outside!!!

Here we are just getting done changing yet another dirty diaper. I think between the 2 of them I had 5 dirty diapers by noon!!!

Amillia will be 9 months old in a couple weeks!!! It's amazing how fast they grow!!

That time again?!?!??!

It's hard to believe it's time for school and football again!!! Shane started 2 a days this week. No pictures of that(Daddy probably wouldn't like that on the internet), so I thought I would show some of last week when we went into weights one night.
Here is Dylan helping Daddy

He is our weight room. It is SOOOO small. 20 stinky boys in that little room!!

Another view of it

Here is one of our favorite players....Aaron!!!

Here is the whole group!!! All are in high school expect for a couple on the front row who are still just 8th graders.

Go Bulldgos!!!

Lake of the Ozarks

Shane and I got invited to the lake by some friends, so we headed down there this past weekend.
Here Shane and I are at a bar!!! Such a beautiful view!!

Here is the pool at the bar. You could swim up and order your drink. So fun!!

Here is the house where we stayed!!! Oh, just kidding. I told our friend Brad, I would tell everyone this is where we stayed. I loved this house though.

And this one too!! It was HUGE!!!

We went to another bar on the water(mile maker #20, I think Hays), it was called Dog Days. A guy Dale Blue was singing. It was good and very funny!!!

What a great time we had!! Thanks to the grandparents and Hays for watching Dylan. He had a ball with you all like always, and wasn't excited to see us at all!!!

Here is what our swingset looked like 4 months ago when we got it!!!

Sunday night we had a storm go through(Shane, Dylan and I were outside playing and saw a little twister trying to form) and then a ton of wind and this is what happend to our swingset.

Insurance will cover it though. Dylan and I have missed playing on it this week though!!

Water Park

Dylan and I headed south with Grandma & Grandpa Bergsten on Friday night. We got the kids to bed that night and headed to Kohls, which was open until mid-night. And then I got up in the morning and talked my brother into taking me garage saling in Wichita! Luckly, he got an awsome deal on some sand paper!!! What a great brother he is.
On Saturday afternoon we headed into town to the new YMCA water park!! It is so awsome.
Here are some swings that the kids can ride on in the water. So neat!

The had a little sprinkler park where all the water shot up from the ground. Dylan had never seen anything like it before and loved it. Here is Aunt Kate, Kennedy and Dylan playing(and yes, Aunt Kate did wear a swimsuit, though you can tell from this picture)!!

Here is Dylan stomping on the water!

Kate, Dana and I headed down this orange water slide! It was dark and fast and very, very scary!! I only went down once.

This big blue bucket here would fill with water and then fall down on every one below. I'm pretty proud of this picture!!!

What a fun weekend. We were so glad that we got to go down and play!! Thanks for having us!!!

Have a great weekend!!!! Stay cool!!!

Headed West

So today is the big day that Uncle Shaun heads west to college. He starts football pracitce tomorrow. We are excited for him but yet hate to see him go and also go so far away!! It seems just like yesterday when Shane and I started dating and Shaun was just 6 years old!!!
Here are the Ohlde boys with Dylan on his baptism day.

Shaun was in Florida when Dylan was born at a LYF convention, so here he is holding Dylan for the first time....2 years ago!!!

Though he is all grown-up and 18 years old now I will always see him like he is at 8 years old at my 21st birthday party. I always enjoyed helping him with his home work, playing games with him and he always LOVED my hugs and kisses!!!!

Good Luck Shaun!!! We know you will do great!! We love you and will miss seeing you all the time!!!

Give me a ride!!!

Anytime someone drives bye our house in a truck,4-wheeler, tractor and Dylan knows who they are....he has to have a ride. Even if it's just for a loop around our driveway.
Great-Grandpa Ohlde was the lastest who picked Dylan up while we were playing outside the other day.

Dylan wanted nothing to do with my camera!!!

Thanks to everyone who gives Dylan "rides" he LOVES it!!!
