A fun weekend of Riding and getting dirty!

This weekend we went to the Buckley prop. and camped. It was a great time. It was so HOT though, it was hard to stay cool. The kids rode the entire time. They had to such fun. They are used to riding at the dunes, so It was fun for a change to ride on trails and in the dirt.
I have never seen them so dirty.

The first picture is my all time favorite! My boy is getting so old! See that tire off the ground? Carter was jumping for the first time!

The girls were so excited, We let them ride doubles for the first time.

Mariah fell in love with Cody's motorcycle. She rode it the whole time. She is a great rider! Clint was so proud!
Which made it easy on Jordan, She didn't have to share their quad.
They were all so cute, they followed each other around like ducks.
Here is my baby, Enjoying camp, he just woke up from a nap.
Cousin Kevin brought his Jeep, Lane was a happy camper. He was so cute, everytime he got in, he crossed his arms.:)
Well, I love my quad, but their is nothing like Jeepin. I found my new love. I was bombin the trails!

It was a great time.

Build a bear!

Yesterday, I got to pick up My little cousins from their last day of school. We had to go do something fun. So we went to Build a bear. I only got a few weird looks walking though the mall with 6 kids. They were all so excited! Lane even thought it was pretty cool.

Then we went and got lunch and played at the park. Of course the monkey bars are always the favorite.

It was a super fun day!

Sunday was a good day!

On Sunday we had a picnic at the park for Father's day. It was very relaxing. We played a game of baseball, had a batmitton tournament. Then Dad "Grandpa" had a great idea to have some relay races. I don't think Erica and I have ever laughed so hard. Scot made it very clear that he had 20+ years on the boys. Scot, Clint and Matt races across the field, the first race Clint and Matt tied. The funniest part was after the first race Scot said " Best out of 12 boys," You should have seen their faces....So lets just say the boys are short distance runners and Scot rocked them!
So after I said whats your secret? He laughed and said "Ha, I run on the treadmill 2 times a week!" We were so inpressed! Great job Scot!

The babies enjoyed sitting back and enjoying some pizza, Watching for airplanes.
Father's day is another day that can be really hard. It is a day to remember my Dad. And to Thank my Heavenly father for sharing him with me as long as he did.

As for Clint, Matt and Scot, Thanks for all you do for me, You all have a special place in my heart, Happy Fathers day, I love you!

It was a Rodarte Party!!

We had Clint's work, Rodarte Const. picnic on Sat. It was a blast! It was at Uncle F. house, there was so much to do. We had a ton of competions. Chili cook off, Croquet, Bunco, A mean Dodge ball game, Here are a couple of my favorites.....

All the superintendents had a pie eating contest. The winner, won lunch for their crew. Clint gave it a great shot, you just have to remember who he was competing against. Rodartes!
Then the kids had a turn, if their name was drawn in the raffle, they could compete. Carter and Mariah were drawn. Carter got grossed out first thing.
Mariah rocked! I think her Rodarte was coming out in her!
Last but not least, My favorite, TUG o WAR! It started out with the old men against the young men. That old man strength kicked in and the 30 and young got whipped. Then the old women beat the young gals.

Then the kids, boys against girls. The girls took the victory!
Then everyone just started match up misc. people to compete. Sisters against sisters!
Then lets just say it got ugly, Brothers against brothers. Uncle F. boys put up great fights.
Then Clint against Matt. Clint had him and Matt pulled the good ol trick and let go, Clint fell and Matt ran with the victory! Don't worry Clint you still made me Proud!!

Then, it got real ugly!! You all know Cimberly, the tough girl that got beat up all her life from 6 big brothers! They put me and her head to head! She gave me a run for my money!! She is a power house!!

But, Let just say, she is not tough enough!! I didn't let My man down!! I took the VICTORY!!
It was a super fun day full of lots of Laughter!!

Carter is a big boy now....

He graduated from T-ball. It was a fun year, he probably could have last year. He wasn't very challenged, but it worked out great with a broken arm 3/4 of the season. His last up to bat of the game, he hit a home run, over all the kids heads! He was so excited!

Great job bud, We are proud of you!

The bigger the bike...the higher he jumps?...

Carter and his little buddies built another jump. He had to show me how high he jumps, then he didn't believe me when I freaked out, so we had to take a picture to prove it. I must say that the picture does show it as high as it looks in person. "Sorry Alysa he forgot to put on his "New" helmet. He was just showing me really quick"

Look what Uncle Sam bought the Thomas Kids!

All the kids have been needing new bikes. So we decided to spoil them with the good ol tax check! They were so excited!

I can't believe that the girls picked different ones! Kinda nice but sad at the same time, they are becoming so different. Carter says his looks like a "Race Bike"
