Field Day, First Track Meet, and in between

Cayden has had quite a bit going on lately. He had field day one week and his first and only track meet the next. So, here we go.
Field Day:
First they started off with a prediction run. The class predicts how many laps they can run as a whole and which ever class is closest to their number wins. Cayden's class precited 87? i think and they ran 112... they were pretty far off, but they ran the most laps out of all the classes competing at that time.

Cayden with some of the boys in his class.

He fell being goofy and scraped his knee.

After the prediction run they had free time and were able to buy popsicles for a quarter. Tristan joined in on the fun.





After free time and lunch they had relay races.

Cayden doing the egg relay.

The marble relay. They had to hop on one foot to the marbles, pick one up with their toes, and hop back. cute

This is the in between... Tristan is really into Batman and Superman right now. Mostly Batman because he has this mask. His Batman costume consists of a Batman mask, cape, only undies, and socks. It's cute!
And the other night the kids were supposed to be in bed. I was doing the dishes and Tristan came out saying that Sadie wasn't in her bed. So I put on my loud, mean mom voice and yelled,"she better be in bed by the time I get to three! 1....2....3!" and normally she will run out of her hiding spot laughing and dodging me as she runs to her bed. So when I got to three and she didn't come out of where she was, I got mad. I looked everywhere for her and as i searched and searched I progressed from mad to scared. I checked all the doors... locked. Checked her window... closed and locked. And as I moved to my room, which I had already looked in I swear, there she was. On the far side of my bed asleep on the floor. If she hadn't been so cute asleep, I would have spanked her. :)
First and only track meet!!!
Once every year, Cayden's school, West Navarre Primary, and Holley-Navarre Primary get together and have a track meet and Cayden was selected to compete. They choose kids based on how they perform at P.E. and their attitude. Cayden was so excited that the morning of the meet, he woke up, got fully dressed, brushed his teeth, made his snack, ate breakfast, and while he was banging around in the kitchen making his packed lunch we realized it was 6:00 in the MORNING!!! He didn't even need to wake up for another hour and 15 mins.
Here we are at the track meet. They had just gotten there and were waiting to get called to line up.
They had 3 races. The 50, 100, and 200 yard races.
Second place in the 50.
2nd place in the 100
Tired after the first two races.
And last place on the 200. He was just too tired. Poor kid isn't a distance runner.
Cayden and Riley. The two kids selected from Ms. Branch's class. Cayden has great hair. Love it.
Next, on to sit-ups. Cayden didn't do too bad at these. They did pull-ups after this and Cayden only did two and dropped before I could even pull the camera up to take a picture. ha ha
Last were the relay races.

Good job Cayden with all you've done lately. We are proud of you.

Weekend with Idahoans

My sister and her kids came in town from Idaho for a week at the beginning of the month so we went to hang in PC for several days last week. But before that they came to see us. We took the kids to play at Navarre Park.



My niece, Brinlee
My other niece, Raelyn
We made it to my mom's the next day. And here is Cowboy Tristan.
We took the kids to Gulf World. Here is Allison's 3 MONTH old baby, Kai. He is so chunky and adorable!
Rae, Sadie, and Brin at the Sea Lion show.
Raelyn is so cute
The kids with Great-Uncle Steve
Tim with Baby Ame. (Steph's little girl)
The Sea Lion Show! Wow! I just realized my pics are a bit out of order, but it's too much hassle to fix it. :)
One of the seals posing in his tank.
And the Dolphin Show. The shows actually kinda sucked! Less talking, more action!
The next day had a birthday party for my Uncle Steve and my Aunt Libby.
Uncle Steve and Baby Ame.
Raelyn was crackin me up with her faces while eatin her cake. She did it everytime I took a picture.Sadie was feeding Baby Ame her cake. It was sweet.
And another of Adorable Kai.
Alli will kill me when she sees I put this picture on here. That why I saved it for last. She said,"Eww... I look like a 12 year old, erase that." haha

Golf Buddies

Growing up my dad used to go golfing all the time. In Sarasota we lived in a house on a golf course. And he fell out of it for a long time, but in the past year or two he has started up again. He has started taking Cayden with him if he goes while we are in town and even bought Cayden his own set of Cayden-sized clubs. I love that they go golfing together. Cayden loves it.
