Carson turns 7

I think since it was just Mother's Day, and Rich helped them make me a "special" breakfast, Carson thought that sounded like a tradition we should either start or have always done:) so the night before his birthday he says, "don't forget to get up early and make me a special breakfast." I have never done that before, I usually try to make a "special" dinner, but I thought what the heck.....and he was delighted! I can't believe it has been 7 years since Carson joined our family. He is such a joy to have around and is just such a sweet kid.
This year Carson's favorites are:
  1. color: green
  2. breakfast: biscuits and gravy
  3. food: spagetti
  4. thing to do: swim, ride his bike
  5. subject: lunch
  6. video game: spiderman
  7. treat: ice cream
  8. cereal:golden grahams
  9. number: 10
  10. toy: lava man

For his birthday he got some transformers he has been wanting, and some swim toys, that Ashton thought were something to wear on his head, silly boy;)

kayaking with the kids

We took the kids on a last min. kayaking trip last Tues. We went to blue ridge reservoir. Rich's partner at work has a kayaking rental business, and let us take them up. I hadn't ever been, and besides Logan, the other kids hadn't either. I was seriously impressed, even Carson was cruising around. He got tired after awhile, so Rich hooked his up to Logan's and he towed him along. It was a fun, fun day!!! We love spending time together, especially outdoors!!
