Summer

We are all doing better here at the Coleman home.  It's nice to have everyone feeling good again. We loved having Grandma here.  She was a great help.  I have not posted many of our summer activities so I thought I would put some pictures on.  We have been busy enjoying the nice weather here!  Almost everyday I put the boys in our cool new bike trailer and we have a picnic at the park.  They love it. If we don't make it to the park we play outside and ride bikes.  Isaac got a tricycle for his birthday and asks to ride every day.  He also is into Dragon's right now so we go outside to try and find some.  The boys have been doing swimming lessons and we have been to the splash park a few times.  We also enjoy going to the library and getting books.  Today we went to the Demolition Derby.  Isaac just loved it.  I did not bring the camera to capture his face but I wished I had.  He was all smiles.  When we got home he told me his name was "Crash Car."  Sam of course had a good time too.  He still is always making us laugh here.  Here are some pictures of a few other things we have done. 

Sam enjoying some Chocolate Cake.  This kid loves sweets!



We have not put a lawn in yet and we have a random hole in our front yard. The boys love to play in it


We all went shooting


On Father's day we took a nice Sunday drive to Island Park.  The boys love there Daddy! He is a wonderful Dad and husband.  I am so grateful for him!


Sam sporting his cowboy hat.  He loves to smile for pictures he also loves hats!


Finally a family picture. I am not sure what Isaac is doing.  We are in IF waiting for the fireworks on the 4th of July!


My cute Sam


We were so excited to have Grandma with us to enjoy the fireworks! 


This was Isaac and Sam's first time experiencing a really big firework show.  They both loved it.  It's so fun to be there when your kids experience new things.  I love watching their faces and seeing their excitement.

 
Sam was not sure of the fireworks at first and sat in this exact position for quite some time.  When he finally warmed up to the fireworks he pointed up to the sky and said over and over "wustat?" (what's that)
The fireworks in IF are actually pretty amazing.  Watching them as an adult they put a huge smile on my face. I feel like a little kid again!

What a Suprise!!

What a wonderful morning!  I woke up to go and get Sam this morning and guess who is already in his room???  My MOM!!  What a suprise!  I had to rub my eyes and pinch myself to make sure I was not dreaming. (I dream alot and my dreams are very vivid and seem very real)  No, I was not dreaming.  She is really here, and here is the story that brought her here...

Yesterday I woke up very sick.  I could hardly stand up. Both boys had a bit of the stomach flu at the begginging of the week and I guess it was my turn to get it.  However, both boys did not have it very bad.  I don't know what happened to me but I got it bad.  Aaron is a great husband and helped me as much as he could but he still had work.  He came home often to check on us but I just really wanted my mom.  I don't know but there's just something about needing your mom when you are sick.  I called my mom but she was in California visiting her mom.  She was just packing up her things to get ready to fly back home.  I told her I was sick and wished that she could come.  I knew that it was not realistic but I can wish.  Well, I guess later that day she called Aaron and talked to him about suprising me.  Instead of going home she jumped on a plane to Salt Lake City then took the bus from Salt Lake to Rexburg. (my mom can fly free because my dad is an airline pilot) I had no idea.  I did think that it would be awesome if my mom could come but I didn't think it would happen.  Yesterday at dinner Aaron said that he would get me a babysitter.  I didn't think it would be my mom.  Aaron said he was going to sleep on the couch because I was so sick.  He made him a bed on the couch and I didn't think anything of it.  I found out the next morning that he didn't even sleep in it.  It was really for my mom.  She got to town at about 1:00 am.  I didn't here a thing.  Then this morning I woke up and there was my amazing mom!  I am so grateful that she came to help out today.  I am feeling a little better today which is nice.  I feel so grateful and lucky to have such a wonderful mom.  I feel a little bad because she left my dad and brother and his wife to come and see us but I am so so happy.  Isaac and Sam are also loving having Grandma here.  Sam has pointed to everything in our house and asked grandma, "wustat?" And Isaac has told her all about his dragons and dinosaurs.  We are excited to spend the weekend with mom!
