Rudeen Ranch









We got the chance to go to my sister-in-laws ranch again on our way back from Memorial Day weekend. It was the weekend of tagging humming birds. I love humming birds! We were disappointed because we missed watching the branding by 30 minutes! We still got to see the humming birds though. They are beautiful little birds. We were able to ride horses again. Always fun! Last year Brax was scared to ride and this year he loved it. This year Dawson was terrified of the horses and last year he loved them. Kids! What can I say, so unpredictable! It was a blast though! Uncle Phil and Aunt Joyce took the boys on a nature walk and Braxton came back with the coolest caterpillar. He took it home for his pet but it only lived for about a week.

Memorial Day




Paul, the boys, and I went to Idaho Falls for Memorial Day. We got to spend time with both families which was really nice. We got to see Paul's brother and wife which Paul and him hardly see each other so it was great for them to catch up. We visited my dad's grave and told the boys some stories about him. Their two favorite stories about him are jumping out of the helicopter in the military and him putting our pet tarantula on my hair and face when I was a little girl. They have a hard time believing that since now I am scared of just about anything that crawls!

Crazy Cousins

When Dawson and Krue get together they are crazy and so much fun to watch. They copy eachother and do silly things.



Check out this video of the two crazies on the slide.

Computer Nerds



Brax was at school and I came out into the living room and this is what I found. My two little computer nerds. How cute!

Brax's lost teeth


Braxton and Bridger's First Friend Sleepover


Brax and Bridge had their first sleepover at their friend Max's and they did great! I'm not a huge fan of sleepovers but I thought I would get it out of their system. They didn't miss me at all!

Easter 2009

Before we went to Idaho Falls for Easter, the boys decorated Easter Eggs.





Daws got distracted and wanted to swing

All ready for church

Usually every year for Easter we go to Idaho Falls. My cousin's mother-in-law always has a huge Easter feast and then the little kids go on an Easter egg hunt in her huge yard. The kids have so much fun and they look forward to this tradition every year.

All about Daws

Joe's Crab Shack

Before Paul left back to work we took the boys to Joe's Crab Shack. I love this place. It is so much fun! They give you bibs to use when you eat crab and the server's even dance when certain songs come on. My boys actually really liked seafood, especially shrimp!

Max, Brax, and Bridger


Braxton's friend Max came over to play and the boys wanted to watch

Shark Boy and Lava Girl 3D. I thought this was such a cute picture!

Soccer




Braxton and Bridger played indoor soccer again this year and here are a few photos with my blurry camera again. This was the day of their last game so a clown came and brought a huge ball. Then they got their awards. This is Braxton's last year of this because he is officially too old!

Daddy and the Boys


I loved this picture of Paul holding all of his boys!

Ice Skating











Okay let me just say, my small camera that I carry in my purse takes the worst indoor pictures. I am so mad most of these pictures are blurry but I wanted to post this because we had so much fun! Paul and I took the boys ice skating. We left Dawson with my friend Deb and it was so nice to be able to just focus on Braxton and Bridger. That sounds mean, (we love you Daws), but I think it was great for the two older boys. They had little walkers so they wouldn't fall and I think Brax and Bridge both did so well. They loved it and they always ask when we can do it again.
