Afternoon Fun!!

Jesse, Dusty, Degan, Tanner, & Breckan
With 100 degree weather and a bunch of wild and crazy boys we headed for the splash pad to cool off and release some energy! I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot of time there!

Boy oh Boy oh Girl!!

Jenean & Maddon-Jody & Emry-Dax & I
We were all pregnant at the same time and this is the first time we've all gotten together since we had our little munchkins! Dax & Emry chatted,smiled, and briefly held hands! We had a lot more to juggle this shopping trip with all the babies but it was just as much fun!

The Great Brain


     What is Black & White? Will face off against... EVERYTHING! Birds, Snakes, Small Children whatever! It'll fight anybody or anything because it's the toughest critter on earth???

-The Honey Badger-

     In 2002 the Guinness Book of World Records has it listed as "The most fearless animal in the animal kingdom!" This small carnivore measures about 2 1/2 feet long and weighs in at 28-35 lbs, with the females being smaller than the males. It has white or gray bristle like fur on it's upper body and black fur on its underside. Honey Badgers have long claws; thick, loose skin that provides protection from bee stings, snake bites, porcupine quills, human arrows and can even withstand several blows from a machete. They have special glands that give off a foul-smelling liquid that may assist in calming bees when raiding a beehive.

     Honey Badgers are also called "Ratel" Males are referred to as "boars" and females as "sows" they live in Saudia Arabia, India, Nepal and much of Africa. They live alone, mostly in self dug holes in the ground. But can also live among rocks, or in hollow logs, stumps or trees. They are skilled diggers, being able to dig tunnels into hard ground in 10 minutes!

     Because the Honey Badgers have been known to savagely attack their enemies, are tireless in combat and can wear out much larger animals in a fight, they only have one natural predator, the Lion.

     When the sun goes down the Honey Badger hits the town for some extreme hunting! They are fabulous climbers and can scale a tree to find food, however much of their prey is found underground through their powerful sence of smell and are rapidly dug out and eaten. Honey Badgers have the least specialised diet of any animal, and despite their name they eat mostly meat like small rodents, lizards, birds, frogs, eggs, insects and both poisonous and non-poisonous snakes. They devour all parts of their prey including skin, hair, feathers, and bone. They can also feed on tortoises without difficulty due to their powerful jaws. When not eating meats it'll snack on plants, roots, and fruit. The Honey Badger often looks for honey with the assistance of a bird called the honey guide. The honey guide's call leads it to a beehive, and then the Honey Badger uses it's claws to break open the hive, and both animals feed.

     By now, I think you get the idea that no animal is safe from the Honey Badger. It doesn't matter where these animals live, the Honey Badger must keep eating and ALWAYS gets what it wants. Because the Honey Badger "Don't Care!"

Yummy for the Tummy

I started Dax on rice cereal and he LOVES it!! I tried a few weeks ago to feed him some but he wasn't interested and couldn't figure out how to swallow it but today he did really well and kept trying to grab the spoon! So maybe now he will go longer in between feedings!

Good Night.....

I was blow drying my hair & Dax must've liked the noise and fell asleep!

Degan fell asleep watching cartoons!
Where is Dustin's head??
They were all covered up & laying by each other!

And Their Off....

The boys have been asking for some time now if they can ride their bikes to school in the morning, Darin finally had a few days off and before it gets way to hot we got up early today and followed them to school! It only took them about 20 minutes and one water break before they got there!!

Degan dressed Dustin up as a gangster YO!!

Big D is in the house!!

Degan in the hat Dalton gave him!!
My Degan boy thinks he's pretty cool! He's been spending a lot of time with all the older neighbor boys, they have kinda taken him under their wing and taught him how to drop in on the half pipe on his scooter and his little jeep bike! They even gave him a nickname "Big D" he thought that was pretty cool and was writing that as has name on his work papers at school! He has turned into a crazy 6 year old stalker anytime he sees Braden's garage open he thinks he needs to be over there! He's lucky they all think he's cool and he gets to tag along with the big boys!

 Woke up early to eat breakfast at the Coffee Cup in Boulder City. We didn't let the boys eat so they were nice and hungrey and ate everything on their plates!! and gave it two thumbs up!! YUMMY
 After filling our bellies we headed to the park for the Jamboree, the boys were in heaven looking at all the stuff they had for sale at all the booths and of course suckered Dad into buying them a few things!!
 There was a car show with some cool old time cars and now Darin wants to restore a car even more!!
 We thought the train ride was free so we buckled the kids in and they were excited for the ride and than we found out it was $4 a kid so we hurried and made them get off!!
 But they did get to play at the park and Dad gave them a ride on the tire swing!!
 Dax did really good all day just hanging out, I think he likes being outside!!
Dusty gives the day two thumbs up!!
