Playing Catch Up

I have a hard time keeping up with my blog while school is going on so I am a bit behind. But here is a little catch up on the Clayton household.

Last week we took Chad out to Grimaldis for his Birthday dinner. If you sign up for their email club they send you a coupon for free pizza on your birthday. We have never been and really enjoyed it. The girls got to play with dough while we waited..



And Easton thoroughly enjoyed his pizza crust. He flipped out when we took it from him.


We went on a field trip with Sophie's preschool class to the sheriffs office. They learned about safety and 911. The Sherriff gave us a tour of the station and the kids liked looking at the pictures of the bad guys on the wall. He informed them that we should call 911 if they see any of them but we explained that they need to make sure to ask mom or dad first. I can just see Sophie blurting out that someone at the store is a bad guy and we need to call 911.

The kid's favorite part was the car of course. They all got to sit in it and wear his vest...


Sophie also got her new afghan from Grandma Miller! It was exactly what she wanted...



She loves it and is pretty excited about it. Speaking of excited Chad got a new toy for his birthday....


A crossbow! He is beyond excited about it and it took us probably 30 minutes to string it so he could shoot it. Its a 150 lbs bow and you have to bend the arm back pretty far to string it. It took multiple attempts and Chad was shaking by the end but he was determined and he did it. And of course had to shoot it....

Ended up the sights are way off on it...Curious on how powerful this thing is? This will give you an idea.....


It took both of our muscle to get it out. Sorry garbage can. The next shot hit the wall and snapped the arrow completely in half. In the words of Chad "That was AWESOME!"
