So as it got closer and closer to father's day I asked the kids to check with their dad and ask him what he wants for father's day.  Before I knew it Saturday was here and I have no idea what to get him, especially on a tight budget.  Austin was away at scout camp so I told Chance it was up to us to figure this one out on are own.  I asked Chance what we should get him.  He replied "I don't know every time I asked he doesn't tell me."  So I told him we needed to get something.  "Well, (long pause) he likes chips."  So when we went grocery shopping I let him pick a bag a chips out that Mike will like.  We did get him a new outfit for summer along with a bag of Lays BBQ.  Yum Yum!

I know I haven't blogged in a long time but I have to put some of these things that Chance says before I forget them.  I don't know where he comes up with this stuff but I think he has to be the funniest little boy I've met.

1.  Saturday we went to Lagoon for some fun.  The first ride that Chance and I went on was the log flume.  We waited about 1 hour in line and as we got to the front of the line Chance started to have second thoughts after watching everyone go down the hill and get wet.  I told him there was no way we were getting out of line after waiting all this time.  So we load ourselves in the log and Chance starts to have a little bit of anxiety.  Chance kept repeating over and over "Mom, I don't think I want to do this.  Mom I don't want to get wet.  Mom, will you protect me?"  I tried to reassure him that he was going to be fine and he will have fun.  As we started up the hill he turned to me shook my hand and said, "well, I guess this is goodbye!"

2.  Last weekend the boys and I went to Wyoming with my mom for my cousins daughters graduation.  As we are getting ready to hit the road the following conversation happened.
Austin:  "Let's leave the red head"
Grandma:  "We can't leave him, he's my favorite red head"
Chance:  "Let's leave the blonde"
Grandma:  "We can't leave him, he's my favorite blonde"
Chance:  (looking at his grandma) "Well your my favorite nut!"

3.  My sister, Heather, came in town the week after mother's day for a family funeral.  After the services we all went to my mothers house.  Heather's kids were at her friends house and Chance, my mom, and Heather went to go pick them up.  On the way back home in the car here is what Chance had to say to his cousins after not seeing them for several months.
Chance: "I have good news and bad news"
Kaleb: "Whats the good news?"
Chance: "I have a girlfriend, and I'm going to sleep over and grandmas tonight"
Kaleb: "So what's the bad news?"
Chance:  "Austin is trying to kill me."
