Kaboose, Baseball, Mission Call and More

May has been lots of fun! Busy fun. So much has gone on and I'm still trying to play catch up.

I've done lots of work on Cataloupe Corner. It has been exciting to see my ideas come to life. I have lots more to post in my store once I get pictures. I've started doing women's shirts and even cute kid's bucket hats that are soon to be added to my store. It's so much work but I am LOVING it! If you want to keep up with Cantaloupe Corner you can check out my shop blog

Here is Simon looking for airplanes in the sky, sporting a new shirt.
I enjoy every minute with my boys! Simon gets funnier every day. Just yesterday he was telling Ryan "Don't give me any angry eyebrows!!" ha ha.

And a few days ago he pulled his underwear over his head and was running around the house saying "I'm so silly!" ;)

The highlight of the month for Simon was this: the Red Kaboose!

If you know Simon, you know that he LOVES trains. 2 weeks ago we went home to Round Valley and got to stop by the kaboose in Superior. We usually travel at night and never get to stop on the way. Simon's eyes lit up when we pulled into the parking lot. A KABOOSE!!! He got to sit up on the steps as I took some memorable photos. We wanted to go inside but they were working on it that day :o(

There were also some old train parts on display, engines and boilers and such. They were HUGE!

He loves his new hat I made for him. I think he looks so adorable but I'm a little biased ;)
We took a drive out to the shooting range so Jeremiah and Simon could hunt for reloading brass. We found pretty much nothing but Simon had a ball climbing the hill and finding treasures on the ground.

Daddy and Simon
We also got to teach Simon how to play baseball. The weather was amazingly beautiful.
Simon played with Keaton's Better Batter Baseball. Mostly he would have his dad or grandpa hit the ball and he would run and retrieve it, run back and say "you're out!"
This little guy can't get enough of trains. He played trains for hours at his Grandma and Grandpa Hall's house. He would stay up until 9 or 10 at night just because he didn't want to put his trains away. Then he would wake up at 6 or 7 in the morning and start all over again.

The next exciting event was Sunday dinner at Grandma Udall's house. To our excitement and surprise we found out that Jordan was opening his mission call after dinner! I'm so glad we got to be there to share this with the family.
So, where is he going?
Congratulations Jordan! You will be a great missionary!
Here are a few more pics from the dinner.
Here is Ted taking a picture of me taking a picture.
a few of Jordan's friends came by to hear his mission call.
Ryan must have been flying under the radar. I don't have many pictures of him this month. I'll have to remedy that for next month. Here is my sweety with his Grandma and Grandpa Udall.

This picture makes me giggle. Both of my boys have become attached to the strangest toys as babies. Simon loved washcloths and rags. He still plays with them. He gets rags out of the clean laundry and wraps his trains and cars up in them and tell me to open my "Christmas present". Or he will use them as blankets so his trains can go to sleep.
Ryan has chosen shoes. He will roll or scoot from one side of the room to the other until he can get to a pair of shoes, his shoes, Simon's shoes, my shoes. . .
In this pic he found one of Jeremiah's shoes. I wonder if he will still love shoes when he is Simon's age.

This isn't the best quality picture but this is our backyard campfire at the Hall's. Everett and Keaton posed for a cute picture. They are the best of friends!
