Harlem Globetrotters

Brad's Dad got us tickets to go to the Harlem Globetrotters....we are so lucky! The kids were super excited! 

Kyle down on the floor

Kreighton and Kael sharing popcorn

Kyle begged for a jersey...I always thought those parents that would pay $50 for a jersey were crazy!  However seeing how excited he was...I caved! Well Grandma and Grandpa did as well because they gave him some money and I told him he had to give me $20 out of his piggy bank. PLUS we did not pay for the you know it was worth it! :)

Happy Little Boy! 

Then how do you tell one kid they can get one and not the other one.....well you can't...but you can tell a "fib" to the youngest and make him believe that the other two were lucky enough to "win" the jerseys...he kept waiting to hear his name to be called :)

Happy Kids...Happy Dad

So then I did not know this but they signed autographs after the game...making the jerseys that much more awesome!

The BIG Easy...Kyle's Favorite!

It was an awesome experience! 

They were Great Entertainers! 

The BIG Easy!

Happy Kids!

Such a FUN night!

Iowa Baseball Game

I signed up the kids to for the Junior Hawk Club  and they sent out an email that they had an opportunity to throw out the 1st pitch at a baseball game.  I signed Kreighton up and she was chosen...she was pretty excited! It was a chilly spring Saturday and Kreighton, Grandpa Craig, Grandma Sharon, and myself went to the game. Fred was in the fields, Kyle at the time was a Cyclone Fan, and I was not sure if we were going to stay for both games and that would be way too long for Kael. 

Kreighton and the Head Baseball Coach 

She thought it was pretty cool to be right on the field

Getting ready to throw the 1st Pitch

All ready...I wanted to tape it but I hit the wrong button

Meeting all the Players

They were all so nice to her! 
And she ate it up!
Mom and Kreighton

She got a swag bag...and lots of baseballs

It was Grandpa Craig's 1st Hawkeye Baseball Game! 

It was a fun afternoon....and made me wish we lived in Iowa would be so much fun to make it a regular thing! 


I am playing catch up...again! 

Kreighton and Emelia Lange
Last year Kreighton was on Addie's team but this year she was on Emelia's...Ben and Kelly were her coaches for both seasons...and she was a little disappointed to hear they were not coaching the older group of girls and would have a new coach for her 10U soccer team.  She had a lot of fun in soccer and Fred and I both hope she continues to love it. 

The Lange Girls and The Peck Girl with their Grandmas!

Kyle doing his Tap Routine...he is the only boy...but he loves it and always has a smile on his face when he is performing! 

There is Kael...he came along way from Debbie pulling him out of my arms not wanting to go to loving it!

All 3!

All 5 in the tractor :)

Kyle loves his Dad

Checking for asparagus! The kids love it...unfortunately this year we did not find any!

But the kids had fun looking! 
At the Dr's office for check ups and the kids were being goofy!

Kyle checking out Kael...

We made a trip to Beaver Park in CR...I remember going there when I was little...they used to have monkeys...but know they just have farm animals. 
Kyle thought the baby calves were so cute and soft and really wants some on our farm. 

Suns out Guns out...

We went on a was really fun...and they only thing the kids argued about was who was in the lead!

3 Happy Healthy Kids

Kyle had his 7th Birthday Party and went to Waterloo Bucks Game...I was not feeling well and actually spent the night in the hospital. So Fred and Uncle Brad took the boys and Laynee and Kreighton. Kyle got to throw out the 1st I was sad I missed it...but they all had fun!

We spent a lot time at the Manchester pool...Dean and Sissy met us there this day!
Kyle did not handle the Warriors losing...he loves Steph Curry and had placed a bet with Uncle Brad so was also sad he had to pay him. 

Fred comforting Kyle on the loss...he cried and cried. 

We purchased kayaks this we went out as much as we could! The kids loved it!
