As I was driving Riley to pre-school today he was asking about the lines he could see on the road. He asked what the yellow lines meant. At that point we were driving beside a turning lane right by my Aunt Zada's house so I preceeded to tell him if I wanted to turn onto her road to go to Zada's I would get into the middle of those yellow lines. Talking about Aunt Zada opened up a new conversation. I told him that Aunt Alta lived there now cause Zada got to go live with Heavenly Father. This was the conversation.
Riley-Why does Zada live with Heavenly Father?
Me-Cause she was old and sick so she went to live with Heavenly Father to feel better.
Riley-Where does Jesus live?
Riley-Is Heaven in the sky?
Me-Yeah sort of.
Riley-Does Jesus reach down and grab people?
Me-(wanting to laugh cause that was too cute) No sweetie that's not how it happens.
Riley-How do we get there?
Me-Well when we die our spirits go to Heaven.
Riley-How long do we die for?
Me-I get to live with you, daddy, Aiden, and Cheyanne forever and ever!
I guess that must have satisfied him enough or we were just about to school that he stopped asking more questions. This conversation was too cute and it is so hard to try and explain things to a child so they can comprehend what you are telling them without them totally thinking you're looney.

My little boys love LOVE music. They each even have a favorite song. Riley has always loved music and he has a new favorite song every couple of weeks. A few weeks ago it was Sweet Home Alabama! He got all of Hope's kids singing(yelling) it the other night. His new song is from Taylor Swift "You Belong With Me". Only he calls it stinkers on the bleachers. It is so funny. He calls it this cause she sings, She wears short skirts, I wear SNEAKERS, she's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers! He gets it a little confused but it is way cute. Aiden's fav. song is "Poker Face" from Lady gaga. When he wants to listen to it he will say, "Face mama Face". So adorable. Then when he can hear it starting he'll start dancing his little dance. It is too dang cute, I just love it! I wish everyone could see him. The boys will fight over which one we listen to when we get in the car. I'm so glad they enjoy music, maybe they'll grow up being very musical!

I was baking bread the other day and my boys were just dying to help me! So I decided they could help and gave them each a little bit of their own dough to knead! They sat there on their stools for quite awhile and played so good! They had such fun too! You can't really tell it in the pictures but they were covered in flour.

AND WHAT DID I SEE?????
TWO LITTLE NAKED BUMS ON THE TRAMPOLINE!!!!!!!
I walked into my kitchen one day while the boys were outside playing in the sprinkler I noticed out of the corner of my eye the boys on the trampoline. Well I had to take a double look cause they were NAKED! It was so funny cause at that instant I thought of the popcorn song. Only instead of seeing popcorn popping it was little naked bums bouncing. I ran for my camera and just about didn't get a pic. They ran around for just a minute then Riley got down. You can see him trying to help Aiden down too. This was too cute, I just had to post it!!

Riley's 1st day was July 18th. He is going to Laura Walker's preschool with cousin Parker. Riley was so excited to go and show Parker his new backpack. When he got there it was so cute watching the two of them show off their bags to one another, with their backs to each other actually.
I post this pic cause I wanted Riley's bag. After I took it I noticed Aiden trying to sneak in the picture. Too stinkin cute!
ALL READY TO GO!
I can't believe my baby boy has gotten so big already. Where does time go? It seems like yesterday when he was just a wee little one in my arms! Love you so much Ry!!!
