Colton's Third Birthday

We celebrated Colton's third birthday shortly after moving to Ohio. We asked Colton what he wanted to do for his birthday and he said "Put the money in and play games!" so, we took him to
Chuck-E-Cheese where he could play arcade games. Colton and Paxton enjoyed some pizza and a few games before we headed to our next stop, WalMart. Colton requested a bike for his birthday so that is what he got! He loves his shiny, red, Lightening McQueen bike and helmet. He is still figuring out how to pedal and steer at the same time. We finished off the day with a Babcock family tradition a cake from Dairy Queen (anyone remember how mad Lynds got when Shelly and I picked out a Lamb Chops DQ cake for her 17th birthday?!). A perfect ending to a perfect day. I can't believe he is already three!

Colton's birthday fell on a Sunday so we opted to celebrate Saturday. After dinner on Sunday we had some cake and Colton requested that we sing to him again so he could blow out candles... again!

Happy Graduation!

Here are pictures from Parker's graduation. I didn't want to post them until I had pictures of him with the kids in his gown. Ya, we took those pictures with the kid two days before we left.


Before we Left Rexburg...

Some friends lent us their two for one pass to Yellowstone Bear World so we made sure to go before we left. It's a drive through park with lots of animals to look at, including 45 bears! 

Here is an albino deer.
 The biggest grizzly bear I have ever seen in person. OK, the only grizzly bear I have ever seen in person!
 At least you can see all their faces? "A" for effort on the group shot.
 Looking at the ducks down below.
 In the petting zoo area. Behind Colton is a deer. I had no idea you could pet a deer. I pet it, she was nice. 
The second the change in Parker's pocket jingled, this goat ran over and shoved his tongue in the machine waiting for food to come out! Can you say  "Pavlov's dog?"!
 The best part of the day was watching the baby bears play with each other. There was at least five babies and they were all super playful. This little one was my favorite, I am sad the picture is a little dark.

Before we left Rexburg...

We went to Big Judd's the week before we left the Rexburg.  It has HUGE burgers and was even featured on The Food Network for it's enormous portions. The burger you see pictured was split between Parker and I. In case you are wondering, the basket of fries was probably double the size of the burger. And no, we didn't finish it all!
