Finished Fort

Yesterday was a very productive day. I got our heater fixed, scheduled a bounce house for Oliver's birthday party, went to Ruthie's birthday party in Provo, and finished painting the fort. It is all done! We even painted some chairs to go in the fort. It turned out exactly how I wanted it.

And check out the other four new posts that follow this one.

It's a boy!

While we were at Grandma and Grandpa's farm, we got to watch and help birth a baby cow. Tipsy was having a little trouble having her baby, so we called Bubby and he came over and he and Dad pulled the cow out on contractions. I got the majority of it on video, just missed the very last part due to the pullers moving around and Oliver complaining how gross it was and that he wanted to take a nap. Given, it was a little gross, especially if you haven't had a baby of your own. But I thought it was cool. I'm just glad I have humans, not cows. They are big! The cow and baby ended up being fine and dandy in the end.

Quick Florida trip

We just made a quickie trip to Florida and had such a blast. We first went on the perfect trip to Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom with Joe and family. They sure know the right way to do Disney! 18 rides in 8 hours with a 5 hour break after the first 3 hours. We didn't wait longer than 15 minutes for any rides by using fast passes and the rain to our advantage. Sadly, my phone wouldn't take non-blurry pictures, but you can still see the happiness in their faces.

My high score on the Buzz Lightyear ride thanks to us stopping for a little bit during the ride.
Of course we also dropped by the beach for a bit, but the best was swimming for more hours than we could count in Sage's pool. Oliver is so close to being able to totally swim on his own. He was loving it and you can see the video of him in the next post.

Dinosaur park and Hike at Baer Creek

The pictures aren't totally in order, but last week we went to the Eccles dinosaur park in Ogden and the boys thought it was the coolest thing ever. This Saturday Eric had to go to a scout training campout, so since he was gone I took the boys on a hike in the morning. They loved finding acorns, climbing on rocks, playing in the water and acting like dinosaurs. Two successful weekend activities.

Here are the plans I made up for the fort that I wanted in our yard.
I'd say they are pretty detailed and very precise. NOT. I made them up myself and it is obvious. I just took what I liked from other forts I found online. I didn't take pictures all along the way, but I took a few here and there. The cutest part was how Oliver brought out his tools and helped me all along the way. Our neighbor came over to help a lot too. The only thing we have left to do is paint it.

And here is the finished version. Minus the paint. The boys totally love it.
And Teddy likes his swing lately.
