Triston's Hair Cut

Triston decided to get a haircut in celebration of his last day of school. Tammi took Triston, Mason, and Lane all up to the studio and gave them each a Mohawk and then she colored their hair.

Tara will be turning 8 next month. She was thinking about her birthday and told her dad "Do you realize that I haven't really been alive for very long?" (she's so funny)

Terry and our dog Bella

New technology

I know I have been very bad about posting to the blog so I am trying something new, blogging from my iPhone. I should be able to post text and pics right from my phone. This should be very interesting, hope it works.

"April Fools"

I was trying to think of all kinds of pranks to play on the kids. I was going to change all of their clocks to read 7am when it was really only 3am. I would have had to take the time to actually drag myself out of bed and get them all up just to tell them "April Fools". This all seemed like too much torture on myself. Instead, I served them a delicious breakfast before they headed to school.

"April Fools" ha,'s not really what it looks like. Nope, its not a really eggs and bacon. The eggs are made of white chocolate and I added yellow food color for the yolks and the bacon was made of tootsie rolls and carmel. Ok, the toast was really toast but they needed something that they could actually eat before heading off to school.

I let the kids play a prank on their teachers. They were so very kind to take their teachers each an apple. This is what it looked like.

The worm pressed easily into the apple and when they handed them to their teachers, the worm scurried out.

After the kids got home from school, I fooled them again with a glass of juice that was really made with Jello. Sorry, no pic for this one. The camera makes the prank obvious before they even get it so I chose to leave the camera alone this time.

River Fishing

The kids have been begging to go fishing. They are still young so in the past we have only taken them in the boat and fished for easy fish like bluegills but Terry was really excited about hitting the Allegan Dam because the larger fish are there right now. Now I realize why it is that we haven't taken the kids to the river in the past...we spent pretty much our entire time trying to get them untangled. They cross each other's lines and get themselves snagged up in the trees all the time. I did get some good pictures but that was the only good thing from the trip.Here is a pic of Terry trying to work out a snag but he unfortanelty broke the line, again. We decided that we weren't having much fun and ended up leaving.
