Lots of Pictures

So I had a little extra bread that had gotten stale and the kids kept begging to go feed the ducks, so finally we went to Wapato Park last night and played in the park and fed the ducks. The ducks there must get a lot of food or something because they weren't that into it. Or maybe the big geese are bullies and scared the ducks away, who knows?

It got so pretty when the sun started setting (I don't know about you, but I love that its lighter out later now, so nice!)

Here's Isabel and Maddie, I love Maddie's face I could just eat her up (except for today when she's acting like a complete whiney brat. Grrr!).

Bethany doing the monkey bars, she's a pro you know.

Taking Sam down the slide, he loved it of course!

Maddie doing something her tiny muscles probably can't handle. :)

Sam loved the swing, he just kept going and going and going, he did NOT want to get off!

Feeding the ducks...sort of.

Could also be called "throwing lots of bread into dirty water."

But they were happy doing it!

See, ecstatic! :)

These geese came up and were squawking at us, scared Bethany enough to make her drop her bread and scream in terror. (eye rolling here)

See, even dirty polluted lakes can be pretty! :)

There's a Facebook page Dave told me about in one of his letters that puts up pictures and videos and updates of his Company, so I found a couple pictures on there of him. His Company got the best scores for their shooting test, so they gave them a pizza party. They each got a medium pizza, a soda and a candy bar. Dave said they were so stoked, and then stuffed themselves and then proceeded to head to the bathroom. He's had a cold and then pulled a muscle in his chest, so he hasn't been able to do as much of the physical stuff as he wants, but hopefully he'll feel better really soon. I think he's lost about 15 lbs so far. He's really doing a great job, I'm so proud of him! He was just assigned as assistant platoon sergeant, although he said he wasn't very excited about it, its mostly just telling people to be quiet! haha He graduates basic training April 16th and then will start his individual training the next Monday until sometime in June. (I'm due April 14th, so darn, no going to graduation for me! :( But his parents get to go, so fun for him to have someone there, I'm excited for him.)

2 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:
