Cheese!!! Here's a quick video of the boys on the camel.
I can hardly believe that it has been 3 years already!!! We all went to the Tacoma Zoo to celebrate. The kids were so good that we lasted over 4 hours!!!! They even got to ride on a camel which was super cool! Then we came home and had cake and opened presents. It was nice day spent as a family. Happy Birthday Colten!! You are a blessing and we love having you in our lives!
We had a wonderful 4th at our friends ( the Lee's) house. They had a BBQ and lots of fireworks so you know the boys loved that!! Well, mostly just the big boys. Colten wasn't as impressed this year. It's always fun to have good food with friends followed by a spectacular show!!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th too!!
Lucky and Aurora partied out! Cameron loves Talitha!
Hayden contemplating his next move.
Colten being his cute self!

Megan kept asking Colten if he was her buddy.
He would say no so she would tickle him!!!!!

Alex and Talitha. Can't you tell they're cousins?!?
So I borrowed these pics from our BBQ from the Astorga's site (thanks Jennifer) because I was forgetful with the camera that day. Anyways we had a bunch of friends over on June 20th and it was a great time. Lots of friends and cute kids. It was a great time. Can't wait to do it again!
Seeing how I am horrible about sending pictures to people I decided I would make a blog for those who live far away. We are a family of seven and we live in Washington. We love the seasons and our beautiful surroundings, even if it means we also have to deal with the rain. We are completely focused on our family and love watching our children grow. We have learned to enjoy the moment and to not take life for granted. So sit back and take a look at what life is like on the Durbin Express.
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.--Barack Obama
