While Rees was here I decided it was time to break out the lincoln logs (one of my favorite toys). Imagine my surprise when there were no logs in there but all Jeff and Hayden's army men. They have lovingly collected them over the years from Gettsburg to Williamsburg. Well that little treasure had to be shared so I snuck them out for us to play with.
Okay I confess a wheel did come off a cannon so I immediately packed those precious little toys up and the party was over. It was an accident really. Rees was really careful but got just a bit carried away. Hayden about had a heart attack so I know Jeff will flip. Apparently they are saving them for their boys...not nephews.

Moapa Valley's Hayden Cooper made three receptions and scored on two of them, helping the Pirates (2-2) defeat Cheyenne’s junior varsity 59-6 in Overton on Thursday.
Cooper, who had 106 yards receiving, scored in the third quarter on receptions of 79 and 18 yards from Kelan Weiss. -Las Vegas Review Journal

This was a pretty fun game. Of course that's easy to say that when we kill the other team. One of the best things was everyone got a turn to score and there was lots of that!!We had it all worked out that I would take pictures like at Hurricane and Mendis would tape the game but at the last minute he was asked to do stats. That screwed up the photography but that's ok. I ended up taping the game and Mendis took a few pics between writing down stats. Kinda hectic. This was probably our last shot to take decent pictures because it's only going to get darker every week until we play playoff games in the afternoon.
This catch was ruled out of bounds and we all think it wasn't. Hayden said he was sure his feet were in and at this point in the pic they are in but oh well. It's not like we lost the game over it.
Probably the biggest disappointment of the day was when we pulled into pizza hut and they closed right in front of us!

So naturally when I heard they were going to be in Provo I thought it would be great to go on up and see them. I hopped into the car Friday right after Hayden's football game in Hurricane and headed up. I spent the weekend with Christina. We had such fun that weekend. Christina and I got some errands done Saturday morning like getting her car fixed and picking up Ashley's baby present. We met everyone at the BYU Bookstore and hung out in the Cougar Eat while the football fans headed on up to the game. It was there I was introduced to chocolate covered cinnamon bears! Truly a delight.
Here are the 4 of us with the Temple in the background.We went up over the point of the mountain and through the gorgoeous homes all the way to the Draper Temple and back. Love this picture of the Draper temple.We headed back to Provo for dinner. We decided to go to Heaps otherwise know as the Brick Oven. It was fabulous and we had a great time until we stepped out the door. Little did we know while we finished up dinner the football game just got out...late. We got stuck in the parking lot for about an hour while we waited for the traffic to ease up. Well it was fun to have another hour to visit!

Next week we buy the cap and gown and stuff. This year is going to fly by I am sure. He is not too thrilled about being a senior because he would rather just stay in High School for the rest of his life but time marches on anyway.
Quite a masterful job really.
Believe it or not one of the things we enjoy about having the kids around is all the friends coming and going. There are cars parked everywhere. This summer and the beginning of the school year some of them were here all night!

I was thinking I should post a football update for the family not able to get to Hayden's games. Our first game was home against Desert Hills of St George. We lost 21-0 so it was not a fun night. It was disappointing on many levels. Hayden only got 4 passes thrown to him all night that were catchable. That would have gone over better if we were killing them with some other fabulous plays but nope. It was NOT a good night. We have lots of film of Hayden open but that's not going to be so impressive for Snow College. He did catch everything thrown to him that was catchable though so that's cool. They want his game film, pretty or not so oh well they can judge for themselves I guess on how they think it went.

Well it's all done but the last bit of paperwork!
