Walking with Kids

I have to tell you that walking with your kids is one of the best things that you could ever do as a parent. If you go for a walk with your kids on a regular basis it is the time that you will find out all the things that you really should know. They just seem to open up on a walk. Things they tell you they would not if they were at home in front of the TV. If you want to know what is going on at school, go for a walk. If you want to know what is wrong, go for a walk. They will open up to you. They want to tell you if you are willing to listen. A walk is the perfect time to be a sounding board for them. Even better if you just take one but this time I took two. Here are our pictures...

If it is just me and one of the kids our conversation are sometimes profound. With both together they don't open up as much. Either way it's all top secret you know? 

You should walk with your child. Trust.

Team Party?

Well they tried to have a team party. Krista went. Too bad only two other girls showed up. Once again it wasn't very organized. I guess that is what happens when no one wants to be in charge. Anyway I'm glad softball is over. Now I guess it's on to water polo? Right now Krista is at High School camp. They are spending the night in the mountains.

Krista at Work

With the show quickly approaching and summer in full swing, Krista can come help at work every once in awhile. Here are a couple of pictures of her as she helps me file away paperwork.

She has been very helpful with keeping my files organized! And she likes it!
Thanks Krista for all your help!

Maxwell @ Lido's Again!

We always go to Lido's. It's nice to go somewhere that everyone know who you are and the food is good. I don't know how many pictures of Maxwell at Lido's that you want to see but here are two more from the other day. The picture below is a quick shot in between funny faces. Max loves to make funny faces at the camera.

For instance, here is some proof.
He also loves their soup and haves it every single time. He is so predictable!
