And then decided to fold his arms. Not sure what that was all about, but we just went with it, lol :)
Yet, another goofy smile...I don't know where he gets these goofy smiles from, but I think it's his Uncle Matt...
This was the best pic, but somehow his head was chopped off! If I was cool w/photo shop like my sister in law Danielle, I'd know how to fix it :P
Ok, maybe I did get a few good ones more than I thought...
At 7:40 we were off to school..
We waited, with his class in the commons area until his teacher came out at 8am to pick up the class. Eric and I were able to go into the class for the first 10 minutes or so. Then it was time for the parents to leave. We waved goodbye and took off. It went over smooth as silk. Tyler had a FANTASTIC first day and just loves school. He can't wait to go back tomorrow! So starts the education journey of Mr. T.

2 cutie pies starting away at the ocean.
Tyler in his birthday pose!
For Tyler's birthday dinner he chose...cheese pizza on the bbq. It was really good! Then we had a small family party with cake and presents!
And some new keen shoes from Mom and Dad...
More presents... ( The Tag Reading system)

Tyler posing with his Grandma Great Mabel. Grandma Great chose these cool heart shades as a prize in the Tyler memory game.
Singing happy birthday to you...blowing out his candle!
Next came the CARS Haulers from Grandma Carol and Grandpa Jim. Along with a book about Kindergarten and a cool Nike shirt. Tyler's reaction to his haulers (which was on the top of his wish list) was "OH MY GOSH!" He was SO excited to get them!
Tyler and his cousin Ethan had lots of fun playing together at the party. They are true boys-cars, trucks, planes, trains, anything that is a vehicle. I had asked the 2 boys to get together for a quick picture, and somehow, this is what ended up happening. All the adults were laughing so hard, we could barely contain ourselves. This has ended up being the family classic, "I love my cousin to death" picture!
And how could we not mention Miss Chloe? While Tyler was opening all his "boy" presents, and playing with cars, Chloe sat quietly on the couch with her blue raspberry ring pop. Guess it did a little bit of damage after all.
The evening ended & it was time for family to go home. We so appreciate all that were able to come. Tyler had a great time and we thank you for sharing in his special day.
Tyler and Chloe continued playing into the night. They had fun chasing each other around, and playing tag. Here they stopped for a quick picture to end the fun day they had.

The dog days of summer are upon us...
You know the kind... Where your summer clothes are starting to look a little worn...
Flip flops don't quite flop back as quickly as they use to...
Where it is warm at night, and the sun starts to set in deep shades of pinks and oranges...
Where Popsicles melt fast.. And blow up pools have to have a little extra air pumped into them every couple of days...
Tan lines show up a little more...You start to run low on sunblock...Your hair gets a little lighter and longer...
Fresh fruits and veggies are the norm at every meal...and you haven't turned on your oven in weeks...the grill is so much easier...
The yard is in full bloom, radiant with beautiful colors of blooms that you didn't think would ever come to fruition last Spring during the cold wet months...
And bed times get extended a minute or two every night...and morning wake up time does also...
These are the days that I love...the days when I don't get out the camera, because I am just enjoying myself too much to think about letting my eyes wander anywhere else, other than watching the kids...watching them play in the pool, splashing each other...laughter that can be heard throughout the neighborhood... riding their bikes...drawing with sidewalk chalk, eating those dripping Popsicles and playing hide and go seek outside...these are the memories that I will always treasure...the dog days of summer are upon us, and how much sweeter they are with our kids!

After a yummy lunch we came back to our house. The boys took a nap and the girls went shopping. Now, that's more like it, lol.
After naps, we played wii and then had a nice lasagna dinner (Eric's usual birthday dinner). Delicious. Eric had decided that this year he wanted ice cream instead of cake for his birthday dessert, which was fine by me. It was much easier to purchase a couple of different flavors of ice cream (cookie dough and oreo) than to bake. Here he is blowing out his "39!"
Tyler gave his Dad a camelbak water bottle for his birthday. Out of all the things, that is what T decided to get him....in ocean blue of course.
Eric had his eye on a new GPS for quite some time. I broke down and bought it for him this year. It's one of those text to speech ones. It seems pretty fancy...So far, he's pretty much loving it.
Around 7 o'clock is started to cool down enough so that it was tolerable to be outside. Hello swim suits and blow up pool. Miss Chloe showing her picture perfect smile :)
And there they are...all having a great time!
