Inspirational or Graduation Songs

I am doing a video for my neighbors daughters graduation. I am so bad with the newest songs, song titles, and latest artists. Does anyone have any suggestions of songs for this video? They don't have to be new songs. They can also be songs from the past. Let me know. Please include song title and artist so I can easily download it. She has about 75 pictures so I am thinking I will need at least 4 or 5 songs.

Thanks for your help. Oh yeah, and the video is for this Saturday so the sooner the better.

17 1/2 Weeks Prego Pics!!

For all of you who have asked to see my belly shots, here you go. I am dying. I never show this early and I am never this big. But those of you who have seen me full term, know I get huge. I have big babies too. Tommy was 8 lb 15 oz and Blake was 10 lbs 11 oz. Since the Dr.'s say your babies usually get bigger each pregnancy I am afraid I am going to break a world record. Especially with how big I am getting so early. YIKES!!

Kanaskat-Palmer Camping Trip

We had so much fun this last weekend camping. We just went down to Kanaskat Palmer, we wanted to keep it close due to the gas prices to haul the camper. My kids loved every minute of camping. From bike riding, to hiking the trails, we even had rain the first day, but that made it all the more fun for the kids to splash in the puddles. They loved the camp fire, roasting marshmallows the whole bit. We definatley plan on doing a lot more camping this summer.

Hello Grandma- get me out of here!! ( Just joking!!) Blake loved camping too. It was a lot of fun to watch him, because at this age everything is new and exciting.I am not sure who he was calling, maybe his girlfriend.

We had a couple of visitors on our trip. The Stephenson family came up on Friday night. They were going to stay the night, but I think I talked them out of it when I told them how muddy it got the night before.

It was also fun to have the Kidds come too. Tommy, Ethan and Audrey found a cool trail that was really fun to hike down. They pretended they were Indiana Jones. David and Blake had fun looking for bugs and trying to keep up with the older kids.

But just spending time with our two little boys was priceless. I loved how much fun we had. I loved that we had nothing to do but play with them, go on hikes, find bugs, roast marshmallows, ect.

Happy Mothers Day

Eric and the boys made Mothers Day wonderful for me this year. We actually started celebrating yesterday. Since I am starting to feel better all I wanted was to spend sometime with my family. I feel like I have been so out of it and I have truly missed spending time with them. We woke up early and went on a hike. The boys had soooo much fun on the hike. Blake kept looking for tigers and monkeys. I told him there were no tigers and monkeys on the hike, we would have to go to the zoo for that. The boys misunderstood and thought we were going to the zoo after our hike and both got really excited. Eric and I gave in and after our hike we took the kids to the zoo. I wasn't very helpful in telling Eric what I wanted for mothers day. But when we got to the zoo, we realized we had to renew our membership this month. Erics sister Emily gave us money to do this for Christmas for our family Christmas present. Then they told us we could upgrade our membership to the Northwest Trek membership as well. I have always thought the kids would love that, so I told Eric that is what I wanted for mothers day. So that is what I got. A fun filled day with the kids and a new membership to the zoo and Northwest Trek. I can't wait. Anyone want to go with us? We can take 3 people everytime we go!!! We love the zoo.

This morning the kids and Eric got up to make me Mother day breakfast. French Toast, sausage , strawberries, and orange juice. Tommy made me a flower pot in school and Blake was excited to give me the mothers day balloon. It was a perfect Mothers day. I couldn't ask for more.

Here are some pics:

Tommy and Blake on the Hike

I've got my fruit snacks and water bottle. What else do I need for a hike?

I thought this was a cute picture of Blake. He looks so handsome. He is growing up so fast. He doesn't look like a baby, does he??

Another Picture. Okay, fine- cheese!

My Goofy Husband. He can always make me smile.

We also got some cute pics of the zoo, but it seems like we always get the same pics, since we go there so often. The highlights of this trip were the picnic we had when we first got there by a pond with lots of ducks and the juggler show. Tommy was so impressed when the juggler started juggling flames.

Picnic by the pond.

The shark exhibit is our favorite by far. It is the first one we have to go to as soon as we get to the zoo.

Cute pic of Tommy!!1

And of course Mothers Day Morning:

I hadn't finished my hair if you are wondering why it looks so weird.

Blake like yelling suprise. I wonder if they actually thought I was suprised??

Blake got to have some cake!

I thought these pictures were so cute. Blake has started to learn that he doesn't always get cake when we go places because his allergies, or like Mommy always tells him, that cake will make Blake feel sick. We were at Audrey and Emily's b-day party last weekend and they sung happy b-day and started serving the cake. I could tell he really wanted a piece. At first Becca was starting to tell him No, because she didn't know if he could have some. When I told him he could, and served him up a piece, boy was he happy!! Just look at his little face! Doesn't it make you smile???
