Afternoon in Elko

We went to Elko yesterday afternoon for Tys' check up with our new pediatrician. The appt. went well and Tys is in the 97% range for his height and weight... he weighs 32lbs! He doesn't have a love for doctors like his sister and screamed pretty much the whole time... he did get a shot so I don't blame him :) Afterwards we took the kids to Dairy Queen for ice cream!! While in Elko we also went to the Big 5 Sports store and got the kids balls. Tys immediately had his eye on a Dora one (he calls her "Rora") and Katie got a new pink and white soccer ball. She is looking forward to playing on a real soccer team this summer! The weather was so beautiful we took them to the park and let them practice kicking their new balls around. Casey is teaching Katie the correct way to kick the ball... it takes lots of concentration!
And, then he's also teaching her to actually kick the ball and not carry it around :)

Trent got to spend some time outside too. He wasn't too sure about all that bright sunlight!
Big 5 was also having an awesome sale on Nike running shoes (and other tennis shoes) Casey and I each got new running shoes for just $35 a piece!
