Fathers day weekend we enjoyed ourselves up at Island Park. Pa and Tu tu got a four seater Razor and man did we enjoy ourselves on it. The best part is that we could all go on a ride together. Sunday we enjoyed a fantastic Fathers Day dinner Ribs. Yummy. Then Justin took the boys fishing. They had a great time. We are so lucky to have someone so fantastic as a husband and a father.

June 13th we celebrated Kamdens Birthday. Pa and Tutu (Hawaiian slang meaning Grandmother) came and picked him up took him shopping and out to lunch. We told him we would take him anywhere he wanted to go for his birthday dinner and he told us the pig place. AKA Famous Daves (there logo is a pig and every now and then they have a pig dressed up walking around the restaurant. So off to the pig place we went. Then we came home and had cake and ice cream and opened presents. What a great day! I can't believe my little man is already six.

The next day Nana came and got Kamden took him to a movie, the her and pa took Kamden out to dinner at Garcias. Kamden loved how they put a sombrero on him and sang to him. That night he got to stay over night at their house. He had such a great time getting to hang out with Nana and Pa all by himself.

We also celebrated Grandpa Johnsons Birthday, Grandma Voyles Birthday and our good friends welcomed a new baby boy, Treyson Purser. It was great to get some baby snuggles in! We had a huge garage sale at our house with, my mom, my sister and brother in law, my brother in laws parents and his brother and wife. All went really well and although we didn't sale a lot of stuff I was just super happy to have it cleaned out of my house.

June 24th we decided to take Kams training wheels off and after a few falls he was riding without them. Now he loves riding his bike. We should have taken them off much sooner. We tried to take Karsons off too but he had a hard time steering the bike straight.

Since the boys Birthdays are two weeks apart instead of doing two separate friend b-day parties, we did one for both of them in the middle. They absolutely love playing with their cousins, one of the benefits of living close. So we had a birthday party for Kam and Kars with all the cousins. We had everyone bring their swimming suits and had fun a water party. Afterwards cupcakes, and root beer floats. The boys had such a fun night!

Check out this awesome blanket my sister Audra made for the boys. She is seriously so talented!

On June 30 we celebrated Karsons birthday. Pa and Tutu took him shopping. A tradition my kids really love! Then we packed up the trailer and headed to Montana. We celebrated Karsons birthday in the woods. He got to open his presents and we had cupcakes. Happy Fourth Birthday Karson.

And there you have it June 2011. Whew!

June 3rd Kams surgery.

Seems like I am always a month behind. This summer is going by way to quickly. We are enjoying ever second we have of it. June was one of the busiest months yet.

It started off with Kamden surgery. About a month prior we found out that Kamden had a hernia that had droped down into his scrotum, the only fix surgery. I had no idea that such a thing was possible but the DR. informed us that it was pretty normal and would be a quick day surgery. The only thing that really made me nervous was that they had to put him under anesthesia and he would be completely out. There are always risks when your going under, but I had no idea how Kamdens body would handle it. So June 3rd we had to have him at the hospital at 5:30 am. He was a little nervous but we had talked to him about it a lot. He kinda enjoyed getting in his hospital gown and getting the bracelet with his name on it. The hospital and staff were great. Kamden started getting a little silly about 30 min before they took him in. I think he was a little nervous but he handled it like a champ. They put on his cap and rolled him away. Justin and I had to wait in the waiting room, but 45 min later the Dr. came out and told us that everything had gone great. We had to wait another 10 min and then they called us back into the room to be with Kamden as he started waking up. He was all out of sorts. Crying, confused, super dry mouth. I was so glad that we were there for him. Justin laid with him and that got him all calmed down. One hour later we were heading out the door. I couldn't believe how fast it went. Kam was quite on the couch for about an hour but then he was hungry up and at them and in very little pain. After that it was smooth sailing. He acted like it had never happened. I couldn't believe how quickly he recovered. The hardest part was keeping him down so he didn't tear his stitches open.
