Huge post - big weekend

We had a big week and big weekend. Carl and Jenny were here until Saturday morning, Friday and Saturday nights were my 10 year high school reunion things, Saturday was the regional Big Sky State Games up at Butte High, and Sunday we got all the kids together! Whoo - so much fun! Here's Madisyn in her pool out at Ritter's house. She's so cute and smart.

How cute is this? Carter and Madisyn gave eachother a nice hug when it was time to go. Ritter always says they're going to be prom dates. Carter better get a little taller!
Here's Ritter's little guy, Mason, with Grandma Janie. He is so cute and calm. He's always happy.
Carter absolutely loves Ritter's dog Gunnar. He gave him a big goodbye hug. He's a very good dog. He just laid in the shade and let the kids pet him.
These are my best buds! It was so much fun to have Michelle come in from Vegas, and Dana come down from Kalispell. We just hung out and talked all weekend.
This is one crazy picture. It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years! It's really hard to believe that Ritter, Dana, and I have two kids each!
Madi is one crazy little girl. She wanted to get in that pool so bad, and it was cold well water. She didn't care. Dana said her daycare ladies call her "Bulldozer".
We tried to get the older kids to take a picture together. My little man was not cooperating. He did not want to sit on that bench!
Mike found some squirtguns inside, and they were a huge hit. Carter, of course, went around the yard going "Pow, Pow, Power". We have no clue why he says that!
Madisyn is an excellent delivery girl. She was looking pretty fantastic in her ruffly swimsuit and hat!
Isn't she just the cutest thing? Madelyn is going to turn one in just a couple days, July 3rd. She's a great walker; she was all over that yard!
Jada's hair is starting to look more and more like Dana's. She was busy playing with Madisyn's tools as you can see.
This was Sunday morning before we went out to Ritter's house. We got Avery nice and full so she would take a nap. She always puts her hand on her forehead when she eats - it makes us laugh!
She was looking quite beautiful in her ladybug dress and bloomers. She apparently wanted to show them off to everyone!
Saturday night we went to the Depot. It was fun, but pretty crazy. Friday was a little better since it was just our class that was at the Kingpin. We had a good time though. Carterman spent the night with Erica and Landon while Jord and Terr hung out at our house with Avery. We are lucky to have such fabulous babysitters!
Kyle managed to find a Sunburst buddy on Saturday (and apparently also a hat)! I had never met Justin before, but I knew his kids went to the same daycare as Carter. They had a good time visiting.
This was Friday at the Kingpin. It's a volleyball picture - these were the 5 seniors that played in 99 (Me, Ritter, Michelle, Jackie Jurenic, and Dana). It was great to just see what people were up to. Mom and Dad babysat that night for us. Thanks everyone! I haven't been out in a long time, and I'm glad I went to the reunion!
Saturday was a crazy day. We were up at Butte High from 8am to 7pm. Dad was there even longer. It went well though (we qualified for Billings), and we had great helpers. Jordan and Chelbe ran the concession stand for us all day! Abbey did admissions and helped keep score. They are fantastic!
Here's Grandma, her boys, and their wives. We always love when Carl and Jenny come up to visit in the summer. We had a great time - wish it could last longer. Grandma loves when both her sons are together.
Avers got to wear a beautiful romper on Friday. I think we're finally getting into the hot, hot weather. She looked lovely sitting with her Daddy. Kyle was dressed up because they went golfing out at Old Works.
Lando and Carter came and visited us at Butte High for a little while. Landon and Carter had giant spoons and were pretending to feed me cake, cereal, pancakes, and soup. They're crazy little guys.
Carter finally got to wear his sleeveless basketball shirt. As you can see, he was working on his huge muscles down in the weight room!
Here's one of our family pictures for the summer. I hope Carl and Jenny got a better one since little Kyle's eyes are closed! The boys didn't want to smile either, but they are holding hands. Very cute! Hope you had a good trip back Carl and Jenny!
Here's my pretty sleepin' girl on the couch. These bunny jammas are a favorite of mine. They are nice and light and form-fitting. Good pick Alaska girls!
Doesn't he look like a pro? I told him he had cool baseball pajamas so he had to find his bat!
My pretty pantsless girl was having a good time with Abbey on Thursday. She's starting to get very vocal - testing out all the lovely noises she can make!
Jordo and I made a trip to Emerson with the boys last week. I rode them in their carrier on Dad's bike, which was a little scary at first since his bike is so big. It was fun though. We were there for about an hour!
Jordan's hair is getting so long! She was a big help this whole week.
They were touching the dino bones. They kept calling it a dragon though, which made me laugh.
Landon is quite the climber. He can go up that rock wall in about 15 seconds! Wow, I guess that's the end. What a week!
