Last week Thursday the boys had their last day of T-ball clinic.  They did Monday-Thursday for 2 weeks in a row (so 8 days).   They seemed to really enjoy it and the weather was great for them.

Thursday afternoon we headed out for another camping trip.  This time with the Stauffer's to the Concrete KOA.   This is one of the boy's favorite spots and we all love it there.   They have a fun jumpy pillow which is like a huge pillow/trampoline that all the kids can jump up and down on.  I took Baker on it a few times and layed him down in the middle and sat next to him and the boys would come jump by him and he would laugh so hard it was so cute.   Madden even had fun on there.    They also loved the playground, the mini golf, the wagon ride and of course the pool.   I tried to take Baker in the pool again this trip and this time he was not up for it so we just watched the other boys play.   Madden loves the water and of course Talan and Deegan do as well.

Thursday was great weather, Friday was really cold (I was actually wearing 2 thick sweatshirts all day) until 4:00 when the sun broke through and it got nice.  Then Saturday it was a mixture of raining and pouring all day long.   Sunday was cool in the morning and we came home that day anyway.

While we were there Talan and Deegan learned to ride their bikes without training wheels :)  It was very exciting.  We had talked about it awhile and it didn't know how it would go but wow, they really took off and made it look so easy.  We were so proud of them and it was so fun to see them ride like big boys.   Deegan had a couple wipe outs so he is a little apprehensive but when he gets going he really goes.   He needs help getting started yet and gets frustrated when he can't get it on his own.   Talan can start and stop really great all on his own.  He said he was just going to keep practising and practising until he got it and he did...very quickly.   I think we could have taken their training wheels off a long time ago!

The boys had so much fun playing with Brooklyn (she is 5) and she encouraged them to try riding without training wheels since that is the way she does it :)   She even supervised as they took the wheels off all by themselves. Looks like they are going to be handy just like their daddy! 

On Saturday the boys and Brooklyn were coloring in our trailer for awhile and I was sitting in there with Baker and Talan had a notebook that he likes to draw in and he was looking through the pages in it and he said "Mommy, there are so many good memories in this book....this is going to be my memory book"  it was so cute.   Some of the things that kids say just crack me up, you never know what to expect.

We didn't take the double stroller this trip b/c Baker does not sit well in it at all b/c of the lack of support and we figured Madden could just ride his trike.   Well, he didn't ride in the gravel as well as he did at home and he would get really distracted and go off course and so sometimes when I would want to go for a walk with the boys I would just throw him in the basket under the single stroller.   He loved it and it looked pretty funny :)

Here are some pics of the boys on their bikes without the training wheels:
