Father's Day

One of my favorite "holidays" is celebrating my favorite guy!

In past years it has been difficult keeping Nick's gifts a secret if Landon knows what they are ahead of time. He has a tendency to blurt it out before he opens the gift. But this year he was REALLY good!! He didn't let out a peep about what his gifts were this year!! I'm so proud!

And the best party is Nick was surprised!
Landon had a couple gifts for Nick this year. At preschool they made frames and the teachers took pictures of the kids dressed as "dad"s! It's a super cute picture and hangs on our fridge.
His other gift for Nick was the plane that he painted himself at As You Wish! This sits on Nick's desk at work. He loved it!
I always get Nick a gift too and this year I got him the Lego Fire Brigade that he has been drooling over for months!

Overall I think it was good Father's Day!

As You Wish!

A few weeks before Father's Day Josalyn & I took Kierstin and Landon to As You Wish to make something special for their fathers.

Landon chose an airplane.

And Kierstin a trophy.

They each decorated and painted their items themselves.

When they were done the shop fires and seals their masterpieces. Landon was a little disappointed that he was not able to take it home with him. But he was REALLY good about not telling his dad about what he did. And was able to keep his secret from Nick until Father's Day.

Some Day You'll Ask for His Autograph!

Along with swim class, Landon also had soccer lessons this summer.

Because he had to go back to Missouri for half the summer he was only able to attend 3 of the 6 classes. But, he LOVED every single class!

He was suprisingly pretty good! He always kept good control of the ball and even listened pretty good.

He needs to learn about sportsmanshop though. He would do a "Nanny-nanny-boo-boo" to the kids that he was able to block their goal. But he'll learn.

The kids loved the parachute game that they played. Lifting up the parachute and running underneath it!

Making a goal!! SCORE!

I'm hoping next summer to sign him up again for soccer and hopefully he can attend ALL the classes. The best part of soccer was that it was INSIDE!!

Swim Classes

Again this summer we signed Landon up for swim class.

This time he learned to put his head ALL-THE-WAY under water!

He is VERY proud of himself! Nick and I are very proud of him too!

Landon always loves his teachers and all the kids in his class.

I think his favorite day at swim class is the last day when the kids get a treat and they turn on the mushroom thing behind him.
