Garret's 2nd Birthday

You can tell that Garret is a third child. His birthday was a little pathetic. I was going to put his Cozy Coupe Car together the night before, but our power was out, so I didn't do it. The next morning Tanner wanted to try and put it together. So he went out and tried with no success. So I went out to help him and of course Garret came with me because he never leaves my side. So he sat there for about an hour while my dad (thankfully he stopped by and helped me) and I put it together. It was so sad watching him try to get in it to play with it while we were putting it together. I really should have put it together the night before. The kids told me that I should make him a lawn mower cake or a hot tub cake because those are two of his favorite things in the whole world. So what kind of cake did he get? A blue one. That's about as far as my artistic abilities go. I did let him pick out the kind of cake. He chose rainbow chip. So all in all his birthday was not the extravaganza that my 1st child's 2nd birthday was. Poor Garret.

Visit from Cousin Bill

My cousin Bill, his wife Kym, their son Cayden, Kym's mom Nancy, my Granny Worthen and Aunt Marsha all came to visit us in Spokane over Memorial Day weekend. We haven't seen Bill and his family in forever. They live across the country in North Carolina. It was fun to see them. We went and showed them Riverfront Park. Aren't the falls just beautiful this time of year? They are pretty much a trickle by the end of the summer.

Garret really wanted to swim in and drink out of the fountain at the Logan Temple.

He looks very deceptively sweet.

Olympics at the Cabin

We had our very own Olympics. The kids competed in events like the 100 yard dash, long jump, shot put, discus throw, 3 legged race, and water balloon toss. The kids got paper plate medals for their participation in the events.

Games at the Cabin

The Christensen family enjoys sports a ton. So of course on our family reunion we played many different kinds. We had a ping pong tournament, played wiffle ball, volleyball, basketball, as well as Settlers and Bang. And of course you can't forget all the Nintendo DS games. The kids could link their DS's together and play against each other.

We got to go to the zoo with some of our cousins and see the animals and ride the carousel and the train while we were in Utah.

Tanner and his cousin Cayden wanted to ride the strangest animals. Tanner is riding a poison dart frog and Cayden rode a praying mantis.
