Last week I took Abby and Blake to the dentist for a check-up. What an experience! Abby did okay but had to have a lot of reassurance that things would be alright. In the end, she cooperated and did great.Blake on the other hand is another story.
Blake refused to do everything asked. He wouldn't open his mouth for x-rays or for the actual checkup. He clamped down on his mouth and wouldn't budge. The only time he opened his mouth was to scream bloody murder!
So needless to say, I am not looking forward to his next checkup in 6 months.
One neat thing the dentist offers is a reward for no cavities. If the patient had no cavities on their visit, they get to put their name in a drawing. At the end of the month they pull a name out and that child gets a gift card to Toys R Us. So Abby got to put her name in the jar and they said as far as they know, Blake didn't have any cavities either. So he got his name in the jar as well!

Blake saw the girls having so much fun that when the parade passed him on the side of the road, he ran into the mix and joined the group. He loved it!

Ever since we got back the kids have been asking when we can go again.

Last night Clint and I had free babysitting from the Bishop and his wife, so we took the opportunity to see Ocean's Thirteen. We both really liked the movie and I thought it was funnier than the previous two had been. Since we had just visited Las Vegas, it made watching the movie even more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone and would actually like to see it again!

These last 2 days I have been taking a Google Tools class and have really enjoyed all that I have been learning. Clint was kind enough to take off the last 2 days to stay home and watch the kids. They have been having so much fun with dad!
Last night Clint set up our tent, canopy, and firepit in the backyard and we all roasted hot dogs and made smores. The kids and daddy then slept outside in the tent while I stayed inside so I could get up early and get to my class this morning.
Since the Istook Family Blog has been so much fun, I thought I would start a blog for my own family. That way I can share more in detail with you all about our comings and goings. I hope you enjoy the site and feel free to post comments, etc.
