This past weekend we went camping, yes it was in a tent! No running water, no electricity and no cell phone service!! We were invited to join Charlie's Pal Landon's family at the Huzzah Valley Camping Resort  for camping and a float trip. Thanks to the Gerland Family for Loaning us some camping gear!! We had a great time!! It looked like it may be too hot but it wasn't all that bad and with the Huzzah Creek a short walk from the camp site we could walk over and cool off anytime.  Picture's are not the best because these were taken with my little point and shoot and heck we were camping.

Nothing, Nothing at all

I was sitting here on the computer and Chaz is watching the news,  Charlie comes walking thought the living room trying  to hide the broom and dust pan behind his back... I say "Monkey, what ya doing?" Charlie- "Nothing, nothing at all"  Chaz and I just look at each other and start laughing I go see what he's up too. Turns out he knocked over a plant and was trying to clean it up on his own. When I go in the bathroom he tells me I'm big I can do this all by myself. That seems to be the theme lately, how he's growing up and can do every thing by himself and he doesn't need me. 8(

Tigger stopped by...

This morning charlie came out dressed in his Halloween  costume from 2007....

Public works fair

So Yesterday was O'fallon's Public Works Fair, this was out 4th year attending . This year it was so busy! We were early so we got a chance to walk around and climb on things before the madness. But Then we we ran into Charlie's Pal  Landon all the boys wanted to do was chase each other around so we decided to leave go to McDonald's for some lunch then check out Brendan's Playground.

Then Landon came to hang out while his sister went to her dance class.  Snoopy found Tucker the turtle in the back yard so the boys had fun playing with him for a while, then they explored the creek and then back inside for a snack and video games.

Yesterday we took a trip to the Zoo, Aurora (a cousin)  and her friend Aunye came along.  I like taking others because then when I am taking pictures of them Charlie wants me to take his picture!! 8) It was a nice day to be at the Zoo the weather was beautiful , but that being said the Zoo was packed with people and school groups on field trips.

Day at the beach...

After school and lunch we headed to the beach at Cuiver River State Park. 

See that little yellow spot  just below the water stream? That is 
a butterfly Charlie was trying to shoot down.

Last Day of the 2011-2012 School Year

Today was Charlie's last day as a preschool student. I think he was glad and also a little sad.  But hopefully we will stay in touch with his friends! 
Last Day of School

Last night Chaz's cousin texted me that he found a bike for Charlie while he was out picking up scrap metal and it was free someone had sat it out with the scrap metal.  We were at a Birthday party for Charlie friend so we would get together today.  Well this morning he he went out scraping again and found training wheels! So we had everything we needed. Loren ( the cousin who found the bike ect...)  had oiled the chain and everything up last night and then came over this afternoon and put the training wheels on. Charlie got out his helmet and pads. Charlie actually rode the bike and he seemed to enjoy it!! IN the past he has showed no interest what so ever in riding a bike we have bought two and returned them.

Life's Little Surprise's

I heard the bell and was like who can that be... Seen the FedEx truck, Knowing Chaz ordered
 some Shirt's that are suppose to be delivered to him in CA. I thought great they messed
 up, now I am gonna have to overnight them to him. But SURPRISE Flowers!!
Thank You, Honey Honey!! 

Best Bud's!!
