SumMeR FUn- dIRt, buGs, aND eArs

Ezra and Chandler both love to be outside. Ezra loves to work with his dad, jump around, and run as fast as he can yelling, "I am a superheeerrrroooo!!" He already loves to climb trees, get dirty, and loves to get into trouble. I worry for Chandler because she is always watching him. I can just see her thinking, "I want to be just like him. . ." I hope she is a little more careful, and stays a litter cleaner. Ezra does have one fear, bugs of any sort. He refuses to wear shoes at the softball field, so last night he stepped on one of those monster beatles/crickets or whatever they are with his bare feet and cried for 10 minutes.

Chandler has had a fever for 3 days now. It started Friday when I was at work and didn't really let up until today. Even though it finally started to get better today I decided to take her in to the doctor. She has an ear infection, which seems to be clearing up, red tonsils, and may be finally cutting a tooth. She has been drooling like crazy for 4 months, seriously, so I wish the stupid teeth would just come already. She is a good sport though, she still smiled for the picture.

We just got Chandler's pictures taken this past week. They turned out pretty cute. She was in such a good mood. There were not even any tears, from her at least. Ezra was supposed to have his pictures taken as well but he decided to cut a huge chunk out of the middle of his beautiful brown hair. So the only tears were mine. It will grow back, I know, but he looks like a big dork. I guess all kids go through it. I just hope he is finished!! Here are a couple of Chan's pictures.

The Fourth of July!!

The annual Fourth of July party was on this past Weekend. It was actually the 5th of July, but hey, who cares, right? I had to work Friday the 4th, but I don't care about that either. I was getting paid time and a half, Moroni was working on our landscaping (or lack of), and my kids were with Grandma at "the pond." Ezra having a blast, as you can imagine, running around with his life jacket on, jumping in and out of the cool water as he pleased. Always a million cousins and friends swimming "with" him, he thought he was the life of the party, when actually they were probably swimming away from the obnoxious, splashing, spitting, crazy kid. It was a good day, not even a sunburn. Ezra spent the night at Grandma Tenney's house (a night Ezra spends in Heber is a night always welcome. Let Grandma get up at 4 in the morning or whenever he decides it is time to play, and she is always willing.) Man, do we love Grandmas?:) Saturday was the barbecue; tons of people, tons of food, great fireworks. Here are Ezra and Chandler. I threatened Ezra that he had to stay clean because we were going to take a picture but he didn't care. Oh, we have been working on his smile. This is an improvement, trust me.
