Rocket Day!!!!

Today was a busy day for us, but such a great Family Day!
Aiden had a Basketball Game at Benson today! He plays on the 2nd and 3rd Grade Division. He really likes it and we enjoy watching him play.
After the game we headed to St David to pick up some Tamales from a local Farmer's Market. Ben and I have been on a Tamale craze- we love Tamales! They weren't Spicy enough for Ben and just right for me!
Then we headed to Willcox to the Dry Lake bed for some Rocket Launching. On our way out to the Dry Lake we were on a dirt road and hit something and the tire went flat, so we changed our tire. Ben had the boys help him with changing the tire and all I could think of was the "Christmas Story", but we live in AZ where it is warm and no snow and there was definitely NO CUSSING about losing the lug nuts!!!
We finally made it to the launch site and set up. We ended up with 8 launches and 7 great recoveries.

The way I look at is that Ben has a reason to work on his rockets now, by doing the repairs!
All the boys had a great time and really enjoy the time that they get to spend with their dad in this great new hobby!
After the launch we headed into Willcox to see if we could find a tire store open to fix the tire, but no luck. We did find the HUGE METAL PEICE on the side of the road that caused the tire to pop.

Look What I Found!

So, I found my broken camera and found the last pictures I took right before it broke.
Doug, Caressa, Payton, Joey and our family took a trip to the Bruneau Sand Dunes. We had a hard time at first sliding down with our sleds, but soon got the hang of it and were enjoying our day.
The last slide I took was the doom of my camera. I had it in my pocket and sand filled my pocket as I slid down, when I got to the bottom there wasn't a camera inside my pocket. I called up to Doug and he luckily saw it in the sand, barely showing at the top of the surface. I dusted it off and cleaned it best I could, but to no avail it won't focus anymore. I am so sad because I am attached to my camera and taking pictures of my family.

Camera Broken

So, I find it hard to come to this site and blog when I don't have my pictures to remind me of what I have done. Ben and I have taken some pictures this summer with our phones, but have not taken them off the phone and onto the computer.
So when I get a chance to get some of those pictures onto my computer I will start blogging again.

So we could remember

Here is a couple photos of Dad's 1978 Cheyenne Chevy!!!

Corwin and Aiden are Scouts!

This is just a picture I took of both the boys in their Scout Uniforms for the Blue and Gold Banquet.

Aiden's Baptism "He's 8"

Well I am documenting that Aiden had the worst birthday day ever!!!!!! His birthday was on a Friday and he really wanted to have a sleepover with a friend. I agreed and we planned on it all week and then I ended up coming home from work on Friday with STREP THROAT!!!!! I went straight to bed and the boys played video games until I couldn't handle the fact that I couldn't even get up and feed my own kids. So I had to call the mom to come get her boy and PROMISED Aiden that we would make it up to him. I called Ben from work and made him come home and take care of everyone.
The next day, we opened presents on my bed while I laid there and then I went to the hospital to get it confirmed that it was strep, and sure enough it was.
Aiden had planned on having his baptism on Sunday February 14th, we had invited family from Tucson and Chandler and Ben's parents had flown down from Boise to be part. Saturday I was not sure what I was going to do, should I postpone it and do it when I got better or just go with the flow. THANKS to a wonderful neighbor Teresa and my lovey hubby Ben, we were able to keep the baptism date.
Sunday morning arrived and I still was not getting better, in fact it seemed as if my throat had closed even more and I was not able to swallow. My mother in law arrived and talked me into going to the hospital again to see if we could get some relief. They were able to give me a different shot and sent me home.
I went to bed for awhile and then it was time to get ready to go to the baptism.
It was so special and so neat, and I am SO glad that I took the opportunity to go and be there with him.
When we got back from the Baptism, my neighbor Teresa brought over some of the food that I had her make(so I wouldn't contaminate everyone). It was a wonderful meal. I was glad also that I had Ben's cousin Cindy make some rolls too. Mom always says, many hands make light work!
I hope that he remembers the importance of Baptism, and that even though it wasn't such a great Birthday, it was a great weekend with Family and Friends.
The next day I was feeling better so we took everyone to Kartchner Caverns and toured and picnicked and hiked.
Looking back, Aiden just went with the flow, he never seemed bothered about all that was going on and falling through.
I hope that Aiden continues to let things just flow and slide off his back. I love you Aiden
PS His friend got to come back after a few weeks and have that sleepover!!!
