Kindergarten Program & Gymnastics Performances

Since I am so behind on posting, I really need to catch up! This is Dallin at his Kindergarten Program. He was so excited for us to come and watch him sing. He wasn't so happy about having to wear "church clothes". Little stinker! I loved that he and his friend Bridger were right on the front row and we had a perfect view of him. They sang the cutest songs, since he is my first I thought the songs were wonderful, apparently they do the same program every year.

He kept putting his hands in his pockets! What a handsome little man!

Doing some actions!

I cannot believe Dallin is already finished with Kindergarten. He had a great year, he enjoyed going to school. He loved riding the bus! I am not ready for him to be in first grade and gone ALL day long! I am already dreading it! I may be changing my mind at the end of summer though!

At the end of each year, we have "trophy day" at gymnastics. Dallin and Camden were both so excited to show us their moves! Camden had his performance first! Here he is getting ready to do a pizza table! This is his teacher "Miss Jenn".

He was so proud of himself, he would look at us after every trick he did!

Hanging upside down on the rings!

Getting ready to do a cartwheel.

Here is Camden Arzani, getting ready to receive his trophy!

I love this picture, he was so excited to show us his trophy, he even slept with the dang thing that night, ouch!

Next is Dallin's turn, he had a great year. He started off doing ok, but then they changed his teacher. Miss Jacquie took over, and boy are we glad she did. It was night and day difference. He worked so hard for her, I am sure it didn't hurt that she is so dang cute and he would do anything she asked of him! He has a pretty big crush on her! Oh dear, I better look out! This is him doing a back hand spring! He is so dang close to landing them all by himself, he doesn't even need a spot, he just doesn't land on his feet. I am very impressed he even tries, I would never dare do it!

Dallin climbed the rope, he had climbed every week in class, but he never got this far. He climbed clear to the top! He is so dang tough, I believe the ceiling is atleast 25 feet high! I think it is pretty impressive for a 6 year old. He was the only one in his class to get this high!

Then he went straight to rings, I can't imagine how tired his arms had to have been. He could flip forward, hold himself and then flip backward. That requires amazing strength, this kid is ripped. When he is laughing or something you can see his six pack. He just doesn't know how to flex it on command. You should see his biceps! That is Miss Jacquie with him!

Hanging upside down, I know not the best picture, I just wanted to show what he could do.

Here is Dallin getting ready to get his trophy!

Holding his trophy!

Dallin and Miss Jacquie

They both have a lot of fun in gymnastics, I am glad they both enjoy it so much! Good work boys!

Camden turns 4!

Wow, and now my Camden turns 4! Camden turned 4 on May 13, 2010. He is getting so big and likes to remind us he is getting big. He usually squats down and then stands up tall slowly and says, see I am growing! Although he is perfectly content to have everything done for him, he isn't my independent child!

Camden is such a fun little boy. He has an incredible imagination. We laugh at all the things he comes up with, he currently says, "a can I get a little help here", anytime he needs help with something. He certainly keeps us laughing. Cam loves to play, he also loves to watch to cartoons, I have to be really careful with him, or he may watch them all day! Camden is still a snuggler, which is nice most of the time. He absolutely adores his daddy, and his big brother Dallin. He loves to hang out with him, they play really quite well together, I am very lucky. I am certainly not saying they don't have their share of fights though!

Here are some pictures from Camden's birthday. I have to say sometimes I have a hard time deciding what to get the little stink. We have tons of boys toys, and since he and Dallin are pretty close in age, they play with the same things. This year, we thought he would like some Star Wars ships and guys! We were able to find him Darth Vader and Darth Maul and he thought that was so cool!

Checking out his new star wars space ship!

When Grandma Hansen asked Cam what he wanted for his birthday, he told her frogs of course! In fact when she called to wish him a happy birthday, he told her, I can't wait to get my frogs!

This is Camden's cake! He got these pirate figurines at Disneyland and he wanted a pirate cake.

The one on the internet turned out better, but he was excited!

Is he hugging me or choking me, one doesn't know! I think he was very excited to have his birthday party.

Dallin is 6!!!

I can't even believe Dallin is already 6! I am very late in getting these posted, but Dallin turned 6 on May 1! Dallin is so much fun, and a great joy to our family. He is such a good big brother, most of the time, anyway! He loves to be a big helper, and to be part of whatever is going on around him. He loves to ride bikes, play outside with friends, drive his fourwheeler and go camping.

Here is the birthday boy after school, he had a fun day. We took cupcakes to school and he thought that was pretty cool.

This is the original birthday bike that we got for him. I was afraid he wanted a bigger one, so Neil took the boys to the store to see what he wanted exactly.

It turns out the size was perfect, (sorry Neil for thinking you were wrong)! But Dallin decided he wanted a different one that was lighter, so he could jump it better and do wheelies! What a stud!

He loves to strike a pose, maybe we have a future model on our hands!

This is at his family birthday party! Camden picked out squirt guns for Dallin, as you can see he was very excited about them. Me, on the other hand, was a little worried about the fighting that may, ok, will occur!

Dallin wanted his own scriptures, I was very impressed that he would want them. I debated about whether he was old enough, but we did get them for him. He loves to take his very own to church, it is pretty sweet, if you ask me!

Grandma Hansen gave Dallin his frogs, he was so excited!

Birthday cake!

Blowing out the candles!

Me with my happy birthday boy! I love you!
