We went to the Bees Game Friday night!  Pictures below.

Spent WAY too much on food.  Two hot dogs, nachos, two LARGE Dippin' Dots, large drink came to about . . . $37 buckaroos.  WOW!  All in the name of good ol' family time right?

New Shoes

We are going on our Annual Mace Family Campout this weekend.  Now, in everyday life Camden does just fine without shoes, but I realized yesterday that he may want some while we're camping.  None that we have fit him anymore, so I bought some.  He didn't come with me to the store, I knew his biggest too small shoes were 8's, so naturally I bought 9's.  BUT holy smokes did they look huge.  I bought three pair, figured we could see which ones fit and which ones he liked (if he had any preference).

Option #1 - Cars - Size 9

Option #2 - OshKosh - Size 9W
Option #3 - DC - Size 9
 And which do you think he chose?  We tried all of them on.  They were all pretty dang cute.  And he went with the ones which fit the worst. 

The DC's.  This is Chris' child.

He came up with this pose all his own.

"Mom, I really like these campin' shoes!"

I think the brown ones might be best, and I'll probably hang onto them just in case he realizes that the DC's are a little clowny and big, but he told me multiple times how much he likes the ones he chose.  I asked if he liked the way they fit or the way they looked.  He said he liked the way they fit. 

Really, he'll wear them this weekend and then probably not again until it gets cold outside so a little big might be a fine way to go.  Right experienced children shoe buyers?  I need reassurance that I shouldn't run them back to Ross before Cam knows what happened and he'll be stuck with the brown ones.

Elder Hart

Hard to believe it, but Braiden is home!  His homecoming yesterday was a beautiful lesson on Pioneers and it is always good to have an excuse to get family together.

I almost forgot to get an "after" picture.  Camden saw Braiden on Wednesday when he got home, but was a little wary of him.  At the homecoming celebration though he remembered what a fun cousin Braiden is and kept wanting more.  When we were leaving Aunt Jenn's, Camden said, "But I want . . . I want . . . I want that guy to come to Grandma's with us."  I tried to explain that Braiden was probably tired and needed a rest, which lead to Camden also feeling like he needed a rest so we laid down for a while at Grandma's.  (Thanks for that one Braiden!)  I'm guessing Family camp this weekend is going to be filled with LOTS of time spent with Braiden.  Welcome home cuz.

We are so thankful to have had such a cute, fun friend so close to us for the past few years.

These pics are from almost a year ago at Breck's birthday party.

Little cuties.  :)

Cam always wanted to do his hair like Breck, in pony tails.  :)

On Monday for play time we made binoculars and went exploring outside.

Thanks for all the fun friends!  (This seems kind of like a farewell post, which it is NOT, it is a post with many future wishes for fun.)
