boys and their toys

Bonnie, Austin & Miles arrived yesterday to spend a few days here in Albuquerque and join us at Andy's birthday party. We are very happy they made the trip, and everyone loved having them at the park yesterday.

Which meant boys, boys everywhere.

a long-running nerf war...

Dan at the top of the slide. He has such beautiful hair.

We talked about how wonderful it is that even tho we haven't seen them since last fall, having Bonnie, Austin & Miles is like they've never left, and we all saw each other just last week!

Dan, Scotty, Sky, Forest, Austin & Andy in a slower moment.

I started to type a 'quieter moment, but there aren't any truly quiet moments with 8 boys at the park on a beautiful day.

We had an amazing day afternoon and didn't leave the park until 6:30.

Thanks, sweetie! I'll tell him Happy 13th for you.

We had a fabulous day, and Andy had a fabulous birthday. He says it was everything he expected -- and his expectations are very detailed, yanno.

love ya!

Oh yeah... I've been meaning to tell you about a great website. I thought the boys might like it and you could use it as a fun way to keep them interested in geography as you homeschool. It's http://www.postcrossing.com. It's a postcard exchange site. You send postcards to foreign countries and you receive cards in return. You can also opt to send/receive cards from within the United States. I've sent & received 80 cards so far, many from Finland, some from Germany, Japan, etc. Check it out some time.

The boys love to get mail. We'll have to give that one a try.
